Salt Lake City, Utah Map

I have done this trail four times in the past month and can't get enough! The beginning is a bit of a climb. The trail levels out when it connects to the pipeline trail and is easy from there. The views at the end of the overlook are perfect for catching a sunset over SLC.

Absolutely loved this trail! The spring weather has made the hills super green and the views from the peaks are phenomenal. It is shared with bikers and there are lots of dogs along the way.

This trail has a steep ascent, but the views make the push worth it. It's very sun exposed and I imagine that the summer temps would make the trail a bit harder.

well marked, lots of different things to see: forest; waterfalls; open brush, vistas and a peak where you can see all of Salt Lake City but turn around and see nothing but mountains. just a little bit of snow left and plenty of room at the top for lots of groups to sit and enjoy the views.

It's longer than 5.5 miles. I recorded 7.5 miles. It's beautiful though!

A lot steeper than I imagined, It was a great workout though! I do not recommend doing on a hot sunny day, no shade! We hiked it around 12-2:30ish and it was pretty busy! Lots of adults, kids and dogs of all sizes. It was a very neat place once we reached the top!! Our pup really enjoyed being off leash and able to explore. We came down a different/longer way but we were geocaching so that always leads ya in crazy directions!

Its hard but really worth making it... Nice view and great people around...

Lots of snow, wish we would of had micro spikes. The lake is covered with snow still. Very pretty views ~ we will be back to do this in the summer!!

This is my all time favorite trail. It fairly challenging but so rewarding.

Beautiful hike! The snow is almost gone. There is some snow on the trail but easily passable. Narrow trail with lots of dogs.
