Good walk. 4.5 miles round trip. Paved, well maintained. Mostly flat with one good short uphill section. Have done this walk numerous times.

Nice paved hike. Inclined at some areas but not bad

Very flat. Nice easy trail that is dog and kid friendly

This is a great trail to take your dog on! There are a few places your dog can go wading in the water as well so it's nice on those warmer days.

Perfect trail to get our dog acquainted with other dogs and to test if he can handle being off leash.

Excellent trail for a nice stroll, run or bike ride. Today, I biked it from Vivian Park to Utah Lake State park. It only took a few hours -- it's pretty much all downhill. It's a great trail to hit for a workout while enjoying nature.

Beautiful! You can use the paved road that goes into the park. There are shaded areas, especially as it starts out. However there were a lot of mosquitoes, gathered around along the creek and anywhere there was standing water. Sometimes they were in swarms and relentless. The bikers could easily zoom through, but, as I was on foot, I ran through them! I did not have mosquito repellent on, so next time, I will be sure to use some! Otherwise very pretty area and views of the canyon.

My husband and I completed this trail on July 7.

This trail is conveniently located, and easy to follow. Since it's paved, it's wheelchair friendly, but there is a steep descent at the beginning, so you'd need to be careful. We didn't see any spectacular wildlife, but it was a decent walk nonetheless. And afterwards, we ran through the splash pad that was right next to the parking lot.

Would recommend this hike for anyone looking for something easy and close by.

An amazing park for the family. We fish, bbq, paddle board, kayak, and play on the playground.

LOVED this trail! Shade, off leash for dogs and a babbling creek the entire way for the kids and furry friends to play in. When we visit Utah again we will surely return!

easy for beginning bikers

easy hike and super short with beautiful waterfall...

Great trail for families and for a quick jog. It is all asphalt and has restrooms, a park, and a splash pad. It also has a beautiful view of the mountains.

All year round off leash dog trail. Super easy.

Have done this by foot and by bike. Paved, but scenic and not super crowded. A great way to get some time in the park right from the main visitors center.

Good for beginners just getting their legs

Nice bike ride, Redwood Rd to 600 West, but the rest is too much traffic.

Shady, paved, easy walk with nice views of the river and golf course.

Great place for dogs to play in the creek. I'd love for this to be a running trail, but it only goes back for about a mile before it's too sketchy to run anymore.

Utah Conservation Corp is currently creating a dirt trail that T's in near the paved end at Hobbs Reservoir. They've cleared quite a distance already on the East side, plus putting in log stairs in spots. We were fortunate to talk with 5 of them and thank them for doing this. They said they will continue working on that section for a couple more weeks & the goal is to complete it around the reservoir next year. It was our first time hiking Kays Creek and that was a delightful discovery. Along that shaded dirt section it was fun to hear the bull frogs bleating loud & see the rope swing with the 'Beware of Octopus' sign. We accessed from Canyon View TH off Hwy 193. The paved section past that point was nearly level & had yummy ripe cherries & plums in easy reach. Another unexpected bonus... so after, went to a fruit stand and bought some great local cherries.

Yes while the trail-head is closed to construction you can turn west down the street with the street just north of the Credit Union into the Old Mill Business Park. Then turn south at the round-a-bout and go through the packing lot and across Big Cottonwood Creek. Then turn right (west) and drive through the parking garage. Park at the end of the parking lot and you are less that 50 feet from the Trail Sign that is under the I-215 belt route.

Easy ride on a paved path

paved, which is nice. great for running or biking. not much of an actual hike, though, so don't get your hopes up if you're expecting a hike. it's got some beautiful views, and there were lots of people.

Truly wonderful hike. Some of the same wonderful rock formations you would see at Bryce, but without the crowds. I also like that it is uphill on the way out and downhill on the way back, which is the opposite of hiking in Bryce Canyon. I did this starting from the clearly marked trailhead at milepost 3 on Hwy 12, just before the Red Canyon Visitor Center. The trailhead has a restroom, but no water. This trail is obviously used for mountain biking and horseback riding, but I was the only one on the trail this morning. Evidence of the past presence of horses is abundant, but not bothersome.

For the first 1.4 miles you are walking gradually uphill on a nice path, with pleasant but not spectacular scenery. After reaching a junction, and continuing on the Thunder Mountain trail, things get really interesting. There is a slightly steep uphill with switchbacks and then you are walking along a ridge, rolling up and down, with beautiful views in all directions. At about 2.4 miles, there is a side trail for Inspiration Point, which goes up to a wonderful viewpoint in about .3 miles. It's absolutely worth the extra effort. I followed the Thunder Mountain trail for 3.1 miles and then turned around. I could see a radio tower on top of a peak in the distance, and that might be where the trail was headed. I'm have no idea of the location of the Thunder Mountain peak, and the folks at the Visitor Center didn't know either, but maybe I can find it on another trip.

Great family walking trail that we've been using for years. Wide and paved, can be used for strollers and bikes. Added bonus, passes by a section of the Lagoon zoo. Wild berries and fruit trees along the way. A couple of bridges over a stream with no water access. Great place for a photo shoot.
