Running

I mountain bike up and down this trail regularly, but it is also so pretty to hike and run. I did a loop starting by going up Jones ranch, then going up rock springs to connect to this trail, which i ran down to meet back at the Jones ranch parking lot. Ended up 4.4 miles that way. A lot beautiful scenery. Great views of the sunset once you reach the meadows.

Great trail, lots of steep climbing and some scramble at the top starts fast and stays very vertical throughout!

Hiked on a Saturday in late June and trail was quite busy, but not crowded. Was nice to see hikers, horseback, motorcycle, trail runners and mountain bikers all using the same trail and being courteous. Pink Hollyhocks were in bloom in glorious measures. Most of the route was burned in 2018 fires but undergrowth is thriving and flowers were amazing. Worth a hike.

6/26/20 I got chased off by lightning. Snow is no longer an issue on the trail. Beautiful views anyway.

My wife and I really enjoyed our morning hike on this trail. Not marked, but incredibly easy to follow. Looks like a lot of horse activity. We made it into a loop coming back on the Jones Ranch trail. If I were to do that loop again I would start o no the Jones Ranch trail and. One down Done Ridge. Better views that way. Overall, really enjoyed it. Good shade, pretty views. Only downside was all the bugs hopping on my feet. Maybe wear closed toed shoes!

This is a pretty steep trail. Be prepared for wind and cold at the top, especially if you’re hiking in the morning. I hiked it to see the sunrise and it was chilly. The views are spectacular though so I’d highly recommend the trip for someone willing to accept the challenging slopes. During the summer the trail is great, but I can’t say winter or late spring would be the same at all. My hike was on June 22, 2020 and we only had to cross over two small patches of snow.

HikingRockyScramble

This was far more difficult than we anticipated. Much of it is extremely rocky and quite steep. We had to pick our way up through unstable rocks. Coming down was not moderately easy! The trailhead was confusing to identify as it’s unmarked. The addresses are correct on the trail description, but we discovered that the city has numbered them in a bizarre way. Just go on the path to the north of the house numbered 1169. We enjoyed the hike despite the difficulties. There are lovely views.

Some places were wet, though predominantly dry. Great contrast between charred trees and vibrant vegetation

HikingNo shadeOff trailPrivate property

So we headed south at the cattle gates and honestly idk if we were supposed to go north instead, but we hiked up for about 1.5 miles and got bored and tired. The main path has zero shade but there were many little paths heading off the main that lead us through the shade which we took full advantage of. Lots of cicadas and butterflies!

Beautiful trail through mix of aspen, evergreen, and several open meadows. Moderately steep slopes with continuous incline to the summit of Done Ridge, then gradually drops down to intersect with the Rock Springs Trail. Views from the top of Done Ridge are some of the best in Payson Canyon. This trail starts at the same location as the north (lower) end of the Jones Ranch trail but immediately forks to the right, and heads uphill to the right, away from the start of Jones Ranch trail. There's one cattle gate to go through near the top of the ridge. It's not an official Forest Service trail so occasional tree dead fall across the trail, but it's well used and easy to follow. Mix of sun and shade. No streams or water along the route.

5/31/20 Great hike. Starting above 9000 feet and hiking puts you in the high altitude zone immediately. I rested and dozed at a level spot at 11,000 ft. It’s interesting how breathing patterns change at that altitude.

Beautiful!! Fun family hike. It had a little of everything... meadows, trees, uphill, downhill, rocks, sand, mud, streams, sun, shade. A great get-away-from-everything hike.

Beautiful! Easy "hike" on paved trail around the lake. Picnic tables were clean. We hung some hammocks and enjoyed the view.

The trail is 100% inaccessible from santaquin by vehicle. unless you walk about 3.5 miles up the road, you will have to come down the canyon on the dirt road off the mount nebo loop. the road is completely destroyed is more than one area. they estimate it will be closed until at least 2021. the trail is similarly damaged and will most likely stay closed through at least 2020.

HikingOff trail

heavily traveled. There are several ways to get up the hill as people have made their own trails. We hiked up one way and down followed the gas line trail which cut 3/4 of a mile off. the "longer" way is much more desirable as it goes through shady trees. Nice easy hike no mud.

Nice and kid friendly. Recommend stopping when you get to the pine forest. It’s very pleasant and relaxing. The trail from there into the scout camp doesn’t offer much.

Great views of Utah Valley, Payson Canyon, and Elk Ridge/Woodland Hills area. You basically continue along the top of P Mountain, and head up higher in elevation to about almost 5,900 feet. It’s a relatively easy hike.

Great trail for the family. Make sure to cut north, off of the gas line trail, about a half mile to a mile in ( if starting from the West). Beautiful pine grove with lots of flat grassy areas underneath.

First half up the gas pipeline is really nothing to write home about, but the second half in the pine pine forest is very nice. The trail is dry and flat, in good condition. Nice wildflowers and occasional views.
