No snow or mud left on the trails. Bring plenty of water and start early in the day. Decent was tougher than I would expect. Sliding on rocks can be a problem in a few spots.

This is a quad killer so be prepared for a lot of elevation. Today I wished I had trekking poles for the descent. Amazing views and there weren’t many people on the trail for a Saturday. There and back in a little over 3 hours.

Excellent hike, with a unrelenting grind for the elevation gain. As others have said, bring plenty of water and food, even if cooler weather, as you'll need it. Highly recommend poles for the decent, as it can be a bit tough on the knees coming down.

Hiked this yesterday. Loved it!! Counted 59 waterfalls. We crossed a few snow spots with definite tracks to put your feet in. Emerald Lake was gorgeous but chilly because of the wind. Take a jacket and plenty of water and food. Snow fields past the lake make it hard to go further on to the top of Timp.

super fun hike but very steep. Not very much shade so be prepared! Bring lots of water and a hat.

Really enjoyed this trail, incredible views of Timp! This is one of AF canyons best kept secrets. Ran into two moose on my way back down in the evening. Only downside is the shared trail with motorcycles.

Pretty trail but I wasn't crazy about sharing the single track with so many dirt and mountain bikers, I'd suggest heading out on this trail if you are hiker super early in the morning if you don't want to keep having to step off into the brush on the side of the trail.

Really enjoyed this hike today. I like going up the Battle Creek Falls trail much better than the Dry Canyon trail. It's shadier and less steep. It is a little longer (~10 miles total), but I don't mind that.

Excellent hike, though VERY steep. Definitely get an early start as there isn’t much cover the last mile and the sun beats down at that altitude. Plus the dawn/sunrise views are breathtaking.

Hiked up. Trail ran down. Took some amazing pictures. So worth it!

New hiker with kids, the first half of the trail was extremely steep and shadeless. 2nd half more wooded and evened out. At the G my son (5) tumbled down the steps next to the G and cut his head and got scrapes. Had to get 3 stitches. Be careful around the G!

This was not a good hike. It is not kid friendly at all. Steep, narrow and no shade made for a very boring and rough hike for kids. Luckily we had cloud cover. I can’t imagine what it would be like in the full sunlight. Also there is nothing to do at the top and 0 shade.

My date and I started at Dry Canyon parking lot and kept to the main trail on the way up.
If I was to split the hike into thirds, I’d say there’s the approach which takes you past the main cliffs of Dry Canyon and up to the first real split. The right fork takes you to Little Baldy, the left takes you up to Big Baldy. Then the second third takes you up the valley that separates Little and Big and up to the spine of Big. Finally, the last third consists of hiking the back spine of Big Baldy until you summit. The second third is definitely the toughest portion. You’re very much just hiking in a straight shot up a big rain gutter - no switchbacks. Most of it is surrounded by oak brush until it starts to open up at the end before the spine, and you start to get rewarded with some pretty sweet views. There are a couple other turns to be aware of before you set off.
This hike is 78% of the elevation gain of summiting Timpanogos via the Timpooneke Trail, just to give you some perspective. My date and I summited in just under 3 hrs and descended in 1. It was a KILLER pace for us since it was our first real hike of the season. We hiked back down the way we came

Definitely recommend - just give yourself some more time than we did!

*BE AWARE* the point at which you turn left to head up the spine is obvious and is marked by a campfire. You can’t miss it.

Made it four miles, after that it was just pure snow with no tracks. Incredible views. Few more weeks to thaw out!

so... I am a beginning hiker but since the weather's been beautiful I so want to take advantage of all the opportunities there are to hike in these beautiful mountains. I didn't actually find the G Trail sign so I ended up going along a different trail that put me kind of hiking up the face of the mountain which was very steep. at the end I hiked up higher so I could connect to the main G Trail and hiked that on the way down. it was very difficult very steep very narrow, & slippery with gravel. I thought it was a pretty hard hike, and not moderate at all, at least for a beginner hiker. However, it was absolutely beautiful up there and I'm glad I did it.

Loved this hike. It was a bit of a butt kicker for only being 7 miles. We went up the back side then down the trail on the face. The way down was insanely steep and hard on the knees so I recommend sticking to the suggested route. Overall, a fun little hike!

Such a beautiful hike! We went up the front trail which was fairly steep but so worth it! We went back down the back way and saw many different types of water falls and a beautiful view of Timp on one side and Lake Utah on the other. Highly recommend to those who are in shape!

I’ve done this trail 15 times in the past year and a half from pretty much every trail. It’s a great summit, amazing views of the valley. If your going to do this make sure to bring lots of water and some food, it can be a strenuous hike. Other than that it’s best hiked I think in the early spring and late fall. On a side note if your up there for the sunset it gets fealty cold really fast. Happy hiking!

The Dry canyon trail makes this a very attainable summit! It was a good little hike with some decent elevation gains, not technical at all just gradual climbs.

if you're not in to steep trails, this probably isn't for you. it is a great little summit to get on top of while other mountains still have snow

Wasn't expecting much from this trail because of the small number of reviews but this hike ended up being one of our favorites this year!

Starter early and had the trail to ourselves as usual. Broke trail in fresh snow all morning until we turned around at about 2.8 miles. The snow depth was anywhere from 4 inch to mid thigh deep in the drifts. It was amazing. Views are incredible. Fresh power, solitude, red sunrise to start the day and great company. It doesn't get any better than this

Had a great time. My nephew & I hiked up & down in a little under 3 hours. Ice & snow for half the trail but manageable.

We went on this hike a week ago. Started on the Dry Canyon Trail and went down battle Creek falls trail ending up in PG Canyon. Dry Canyon was pretty steep but much better than Battlefield Creek. It was well defined, and shaded some areas with beautiful views. Hiking to the summit was pretty easy compared to the rest of the hike. On the way down to battle Creek, a few switchbacks start the trail through some pines and a pretty meadow. Most of the way down you are close to the river. But then you cross it twice over some tree trunks. Further down the trail it gets reeeaallly narrow and steep. You end up at the Kiwanis park up main street in PG

It's about 8.2 miles this way. it took us quite a while because we had some younger kids with us, but they enjoyed it.

This is definitely an adult hike that would take between 5-8 hours easy. I would love to do it again. Planning on it in the spring.

South ridge Rock's!!

the dog and I summitted Big Baldy via the SW ridge trail..very steep...2 or 3 false summits and we made it! Some deep snow on top, but packed down nicely..we descended the Dry Canyon trail and I was thankful to have poles - there's a mix of snow and ice and mud currently and I was half sliding half walking down the steep parts..great hike..worn out

This is double the distance and incline than what is reported. All trails has the info for only one way, not back.

Hiked as part of a 9 miles loop including the Pine Hollow trail, Ridge Trail to Summit Trail head and then the Horse Flat Trail, Snow Gauging trail, Salamander Flat Trail and Bear Hollow Trail to Mutual Dell. The Last section back to the car was on the Mutual Dell Connector trail. Very nice loop on easy to follow trails with spectacular view of all of the Mountains

Dry Creek trail was well signed except for the first fork to Little Baldy Trail.
Little Baldy had no signs and lots of trails crossing/splits. Stick to the most worn path.

Not my favorite but not a terrible hike. Only rating this as a two because of lack of shade and a very narrow trail for much of it. It was fun to "bushwhack" and explore the woods as I did geocaching with my Dad! This is right behind his house. Hiked this July 18, 2016. It was neat to learn about the letters representing different towns/cities and how the local HS lights it every year! I can always see the G visiting my Dad's house so it is nice to say I have been there! :-)
