Beautiful, easy, leisurely walk.
October 19 packed snow, icy in the morning and muddy in the afternoon.

Great! Last 1/4 mile is covered in ice as of 10-19; it’s easy getting around it while ascending but you’ll easily fall descending if you don’t bring spikes or poles.

A nice but exposed trail, so wear UV protection. Although, it is short you might bring water with you, especially in the summer months. Great views with Latter-day Saint historical significance. There's a memorial on top.

Great views, great hike

hiked it with a bunch of teenagers. A great trail to take beginners and those who normally struggle with hiking

beautiful scenery. but be careful, it is very icy right now and very difficult to hike without poles or spikes. I almost fell twice on the way down.

Once you get close to the first summit, there's snow but it has been tramped down and isn't really a problem. I was running and it wasn't very slippery. More positive still, the recent snow/rain has firmed up the trail a bit. (Downside to the West approach to Grandeur? You hear I-80/215 the entire time.)

My husband and I and Scout dog completed this hike on October 13.

The trailhead is easy to find, but I with the trail was better marked because there are some places to turn off. We used to app to double-check where we were several times.

The trail was pleasant, part pavement part dirt, with some undulating hills. Part of the trail is an off-leash dog area, and we enjoyed seeing all the doggos enjoying their Saturday morning. There's also a stream for them to play in.

Another warning.... THERE IS POISON OAK ON THIS TRAIL. My husband and I took a little detour to check out an old bridge. On this side trail, I also peed, and chose the *WRONG* leaves to wipe with. Multiple sleepless nights and trips to urgent care later... I am writing this as a warning so nobody makes the same dumb mistake I did!

Snow and slippery conditions after about 1.2 miles up. Microspikes recommended. Mucky mud too, but it was only really bad in a couple of spots. Winter is coming! Still a great hike, lovely view of the pines topped with snow much of the way up. Walking slower since I didn't have spikes, it took me 2 hours up and 1 hour down with a short break at the overlook.

Snow, ice, and mud, but a great hike! Somehow I didn't make it to the falls, the trail just ended at the river. I'll go back in the summer and see where I went wrong. The road is closed so you have to hike in from the main road.

Climbed almost to the top back in Aug of 2013. Stopped at around 9,400 feet

Amazing Hike!

This time I learned my lesson and wore pants (and long John's) . . .

The Canyon was closed about half way, so it added another 3 miles making it 9 total round trip.

Took the dogs with me and glad I did as they helped plow the snow path ahead.

Had to rope them off about a 1/2 mile from the summit because there was a little bit of scrambling / exposure.

Beautiful views of Lamb's Canyon, Millcreek, the Salt Lake Valley and out East to the High Uintahs.

Fantastic hike in the snow. Few people and amazing views.

Well that was a lesson learned the hard way ..

While amazing and am extremely glad I pushed through it, I made the poor decision of not wearing pants while deciding to summit this mountain...

At any rate, it was an amazing hike through the snow and October weather.

There is a register up there in a container with an odd / amusing assortment of trinkets and whatnot.

Hiked this on Thursday. Great quick hike after work around sunset.

Tough trail if you’re not in shape — uphill the entire first half, and pretty steep. Also, the trail was already coated in ice, which made the going slow toward the top (especially on the way down). Poles or chains recommended. But the view at the top was gorgeous, the lake was so serene — and we had two wild moose sightings (from a safe distance)! Highly recommend, just be prepared.

Packed slush and ice on most of the path today, October 13. Lots of parents and kids slipping around. Some puddles in places. Bring boots with good tread or microspikes. Your feet will get wet this week. Gorgeous and sunny today, a beautiful walk as the lake begins to freeze.

Wish I'd brought gloves and spikes cause it was damn cold after the saddle and slippery on the way down. Beautiful hike though, will do again.

Great easy hike for anyone, especially for the kids.There was snow and ice on most of the trail this morning. Make sure to take gloves that’s something I was regretting not having with me.

Super fun
Great work out with family

Very beautiful. We saw two moose, ducks, and a woodpecker. Definitely steep for the first half.

Beautiful hike! Knee deep snow once you get to Lake Catherine, but so worth it.

Great mid-range hike. Passing through Church Falls is beautiful, and the views of Millcreek Canyon from the top are amazing. Legs got a little tired towards the top, though.

Quick short trail, heavily trafficked.

Consistent climbing up, amazing views along the trail!!

I brought my family from out of town on this hike and it was sooooo beautiful. There’s a dirt trail next to a paved one so you have options. 10/10 recommend the dirt trail. Just some challenging parts for the little ones but definitely do-able.

Moderate climb to get to Lake Mary, but well worth it. We did this about 3 weeks ago when the colors were turning and it was absolutely breathtaking. If you have the time, hike around to the backside of the lake which is less crowded - you can keep going on <0.5 miles more and you will hit the second lake. Beautiful hike, though tends to be popular and a little overcrowded at peak times.

Very easy hike, good for all ages.
