Salt Lake City, Utah Map

Awesome hike. Definitely a workout. A lot of ice. Micro spikes work well. Some mud

Took my sister who’s from NY on this trail since it’s an easy trail. The trail was mostly ice so we were micro spikes the whole time.

Absolutely incredible view from the top. Icy and some light snow.

We loved this hike. It was our first moderate hike, and it was really only bad because it was pretty icy, which made it a little more difficult than we expected, but once we got to the lake, it was amazing. 3 feet of snow that we were able to enjoy, ate a nice sandwich and watched the sun go down. was an awesome hike. definitely recommend.

It was awesome! As beginners, it was a challenge but definitely doable. We had a great time!

Love this hike!

Really icy this time of year. Have some spikes on hand. It ended up being about 7.5 miles round trip. Saw a moose off the trailhead. Beautiful views

Like it. Wanna try the spring time..

Great hike with full views of the valley. A little muddy this time of year from the melted snow, but nothing to worry about. Great for dogs as well.

Worth the view! Lots of snow and ice towards the top. Loved the challenge

The trail was pretty hard to find. Once I found it, there were several ways to go. Right now (January 2018) the trail is very icy. I suggest going a different way or wearing more than tennis shoes. After I made it past the ice, it wasn't too bad of a hike! The view from the top was amazing! However, come down the way you came! I went down a way that everyone was going and it was steep and way harder than it needed to be!!

This trail is so beautiful!!! I used spikes and boots until just over 8,000 feet and then switched to snow shoes. The first half mile the ascent was pretty icy, make sure you have some spikes. Also, once you get to the ridge (around mile 2.5) don’t miss the left turn!

I lots a silver eternity ring at the trailhead today taking pictures. If anyone happens to find it I would love to have it back. I’ve weary it everyday for over 10 years. Thanks. orangemusicnote@gmail.com.

I love this trail! Perfect for an after-work or late Sunday short hike. The views are awesome. Gets a bit crowded, but manageable. Watch out for rattle snakes. Takes an hour or so round trip if you hang out in the “living room” at the top for a bit.

I did this trail in November of 2016 when I visited SLC and it still remains my favorite hike of all time...didn’t have the proper shoes at all and it took me around 4.5 hours but still best hike I’ve ever done

Honestly, a bit boring. The terrain is borderline hard. The trail map works well on this app, however there seems to be a ton of alternative trails to get up the mountain. Yes, I can't believe a few wild flowers/weeds are showing their color. Crazy winter!.

Good trail with great views of the city.

It was pretty slippery in spots today but I saw plenty of people in regular shoes navigating just fine. I'm pretty sure I would have died without my crampons, boots and poles but I'm a total amateur. Really pretty today. I saw some people sledding back down in little seats.

Went this morning! Great views! Lots of snow! (The first half of the trail is a little muddy but the rest is covered)

Great easy hike! If you want a challenge, hike up the first mountain on the left and follow the camel backs/ridges all the way to the living room! If you stay on the main trail this is an easy post-work hike for a sunset!
