This was a hard hike and lots of people passing by you within a two-foot radius. No social distancing. Plus, so many bags of dog poop left on trail.

Pretty crowded this time of year. We got on the trail about 8 am and still hit a lot of traffic with people coming both ways. The trail also gets exposed to full sun about halfway up which makes it get hot quickly. Water runs along the side of the trail for about 2 miles of the climb if you have a dog. Trail gets pretty narrow once you get up to where the scrub oak is. Great view though, worth the climb!

I prefer this over the west face which is too exposed and noisy (hiway trucks). Snow at top till Mid May - good to have sense of trail under the pack - Great views as always on top ! Good workout !

Good hard 10k hike from winter gate - south facing snow was gone in Mid May. Steady accent all the way from elbow fork to summit. Last mile is exposed; but lots of shade in canyon. 2:40 but we didn’t not stop much - views at top of Parleys and Lamb canyons are beautiful.

The stream crossings are running pretty fast right now. Turned around at the last one. No one has their dog on a leash.

easy and fun hike with paved trails for mountain bikers.

Hiked the trail this morning. Shaded beautiful hike with several water crossings. After the major stream crossing, at about 7,000 feet, we came across a rattlesnake in the middle of the trail. He was nestled in between some rocks, not bothering anyone, and still there on the way back. Seemed very comfortable there and actually pretty secluded. So, if you go up anytime soon and see a carin in the middle of the trail, BEWARE! You are pretty darn close to the rattler. We made it to the meadow. No snow on the trail.

Very hot on the trail this morning! Most of the trail is unshaded after the first half mile or, so come prepared with sun protection! Not a lot of people on the trail today, but saw lots of wildflowers and one lizard near the first peak. Gorgeous views from the top of both peaks, definitely worth the climb!

Beautiful trail; very green and lots of wildflowers. Trail was mostly dry except for a few small muddy patches. The end of this trail (where the trail splits off to Lamb's canyon) opens up somewhat and you can see the valley. The view at the top isn't as spectacular as some, but the beauty of the trail itself makes this an outstanding hike. Would highly recommend.

Honestly? Not worth it. First of all, the trail is CROWDED. We had to stop probably every 5 minutes to either wait for groups ahead of us to get going, or to stop to let people coming from the opposite direction pass. Then there were the constant trail runners who will literally shove you out of the way instead of slowing down to pass. Hello, uphill traffic has the right away. It’s basic trail etiquette. The trail is narrow and easily backed up with hiker traffic. Also, SO much trash. What is up with dog people bagging their dogs poop and leaving it on the trail forever? The common excuse? “Oh I’m gonna pick it up on my way down” BS! The same bags were there one our way up and way down, left by their trashy owners to litter the earth forever. Sometimes on the trail the smell of dog feces baking in the sunlight was so overwhelming people in my group were gagging. It’s bad. I don’t think it’s a terribly hard hike, but it is strenuous. If you decide to do it, lots of water. And when you get to the top? Your view is of the city with it’s nice hazy green smog and polluted sky. Seriously if you haven’t done this hike, imagine a 3 mile hike up a mountain and your view is literally a cloud of green smog over a city. It’s gross. And that’s what your work is for. I wouldn’t recommend this hike unless you have a dog and want a dog friendly hike. But please, for the love of all, pick up your dog poop.

5/29/2020 first half was pretty steep but shaded and cool. Second half was very hot and exposed. 360 degree views from the top. Worth it, even when my left eye started getting starry and my left hand went numb. Should’ve brought more water. Took 3 hours total, with short breaks.

I did this trail counter clockwise and I'm so glad I did. It is so steep! I can't imagine coming down this side (South side) also, No shade on this trail hiking up to Mt Wire, I recommend going on a cloudy day. The last mile up to Mt Wire almost took me out. Lol I must have stopped to take my breath about 20 times going up. Past the old radio tower the trail is down hill and not bad.

great and easy trail. will be nice if people respect the dogs on leash areas. plus taking their trash back with them.

Great loop for a run! It is challenging as there are ups and downs. Not as busy as Liberty park which was nice.

Beautiful hike. The last half mile or so is fairly steep, but manageable. Lots of hills, so a good booty workout. Gorgeous and not too crowded.

Nice easy short and steep. Rewarding view considering how short it is

Great trail. Just FYI mountain bikes are only allowed on the first half of the trail. There is a turn-off to the left at the 'no bikes' sign. I took that, but it is steeper/more advanced than the City Creek Canyon section

The trail is paved and seems to be more for cycling. I took my 4 yr old with me and we did about 3 miles of the hike. I will be going on this hike again to complete the full 6 miles. It was nice just he and I. I would go early in the morning to avoid the heat because there is no shade. Very easy, lovely walk more than a hike.
