All clear. Made it to the saddle 6/5/20 with only a little bit of snow and mud toward the top, but very doable. Most times you can go off-trail to get around it if you don't want to risk getting your feet wet. Loved the aspens and pines and especially the saddle itself. Great views. I didn't like the tons of rocks on the trail, but that's my only complaint. Bring plenty of water. 1L was cutting it close for me, I wished I had more. Also, the fountains weren't on, so don't count on those.

Beautiful, beautiful trail. So much vegetation and butterflies, especially closer to the top by the fork. There is great shade scattered throughout the trail. It’s a steady, fairly steep incline almost the entire time and rocky in the some areas. I do like that there aren’t crazy steep drop offs so I’d feel comfortable bringing my kids on the trail (9, 7, 5). They probably couldn’t do the whole way up but would enjoy exploring some areas where the trail opens wider to mini groves of trees, cool rock formations and dry river beds. Much less traffic on this trail, which is my preference. Went this morning at 7 am and loved it.

30yr old 290 male decent shape but not winning any awards. Carrying 23 lb baby in osprey. This hike is challenging but not crazy. We did 2 miles up and down, no loop for us today, four miles total. Beautiful mountain. Will do again. No crowd Thursday morning.

Hot and steep, scattered wildflowers the whole way up. We stopped at the fork 3.5 miles up, where it turns green and cool.

The trail is mostly sunny so start early in the day. It’s a incline most of the way. It has beautiful views of bridal vail falls from across the way.

This is a steep, no shade, few rewards trail for about 60% of it as you hike up an ATV trail. Once you get to the falls it becomes more fun but also more challenging. There isnt a veer off to the right once you get to the water like the map looks like, you instead just head up the bank. One review mentioned that the actual falls are behind a rock cliff at the top and you have to turn the corner behind that to see them and we followed that advice and were not disappointed so dont give up to early!

Did this hike 5/30. Very lovely. First part of the trail is gravel/rocky and second half is packed dirt. Some beautiful meadow areas near the top. Get there early on the weekends if you want a parking spot.

Hiked from Slate Canyon to Rock Canyon. Slate is pretty steep and mostly unshaded so going up was definitely the most arduous part. Once at the summit, the trail is mostly flat for several miles and surrounded by aspens, pines and other trees. I think I used the words marvelous and extraordinary to describe some of the views at the top. We chose the perfect week because it hasn’t gotten unbearably hot outside and there was no snow on the trail (some snow still visible higher on mountains). Even though the trail going up is quite steep and the elevation gets pretty high, the trail is very well maintained and easy to walk on. I honestly thought this would take a bit longer so I was surprised when we started the descent into Rock Canyon. This was of course the easiest part as RC is not very steep and the trails are wide. I definitely will come back sometime to camp at one of the sites near the summit.

Started out later in the day so only did 3 miles up but the vegetation was so green and wild flowers are out. Plenty of water flowing the first 2 miles for my dog. Not many on the trail. Great hike. Going to come back to make it to the top. FYI, two trail runners told us there is still snow at the top so they couldn’t finish all the way up.

We loved this one! Especially hiking up and catching the sunset at the top and then we hiked down in the dark. We had the trail to ourselves! Watch out for rattlesnakes though. We had an encounter with one right in the middle of the trail. Our gps device said this was more like 7.5 miles rt.

First time summiting this peak. My 6 year old son completed this on his feet.

Started at 8:20 and finished at 1pm. Some stretches are strenuous but it is absolutely worth it. The views from the top are breathtaking. Most of the trail is shaded and not it the open so makes it very bearable. Definitely a must do if you are in the Salt Lake area.

This by my watch calculation was 9 miles and took about 5 hr of hiking

Not clearly marked, too close to people’s driveways and yards.

Now that it’s getting warmer I recommend starting this hike early. It has a pretty steep incline which starts out with loose rock and shell and then it becomes a beautiful wooded shaded trail with beautiful wildflowers along the way. The trail is steep but once you get to the peak it will absolutely take your breath away. I promise this trail will not disappoint.

We had a spirited debate..ok more of a small discussion about whether we felt like this was a difficult trail or more moderate. We ended in a draw. It has the elevation gain to make it a difficult hike and it certainly has some steep points, but if this is difficult, what is Olympus or something that is steeper, longer, or more technical? At the end of the day, it was a great hike, worth bringing water, worth going up in good shoes, and a hat for shade. If you don't hike regularly it will be a really good challenge. Views are amazing. The hard packed trail on the upper half was a welcome feature, and the company was delightful. We headed up at 4:00 AM so we could be there for the sunrise and to beat the heat. Glad we did it. Enjoy.

Very nice trail. I only saw two other people the entire time. It can be a little confusing at times, there are a lot of little trails around the main one. Beautiful view at the end and throughout.

So pretty. Lots of mosquitoes

More like Moderate! The first half is steep and it got pretty warm by mid-morning. There were some spots with a bit of shade.

Kind of hidden; it almost appeared like an abandoned road at first. The little weird break off leads to the stacked rocks then winds down the mountain if you want to just head back down from there. To get to the actual falls you have to hike along side the river quite a ways. It's very rocky and the trail is almost nonexistant once you hit the river and you have to watch out for snakes but the canyon creates a funnel so if you're hiking in the heat it helps to cool it down a lot. The hike is very pretty and you get a great view of Bridalveil Falls across the road. Fair warning though, the trail doesn't zig zag, it just heads straight up a steep road that leads directly to the canyon. Its a short hike, but feels a bit longer. You'll think you're there, only to figure out theres a slight bend and the road continues. Once you reach the falls, you can scramble up the right spring and go around the side to get a better view of the falls or hike farther upstream. Be cautious though, it is a steep slope and not a trail. I would only advise going above and seeing all the upper falls to experienced hikers and even then its a bit precarious.
