The trail was in great shape today. Snow was packed down the whole way up. Spikes and hiking poles were a big help. I didn’t even need my gators.

11/23 - Couple icy spots past the saddle but not enough to really warrant spikes. Most of the trail was nice and dry.

Great trail. Easy to access, extremely clear, challenging but not overwhelming, and an excellent payoff for your effort. Today (11/18) there were a few sections after the saddle with some minor ice, but no spikes or poles required. No snow on the trail, and it was decently populated for a Monday late morning. Also, the fee station (pay as you exit, $3 per car, $40 for the year) does accept cards, not just cash!

In great condition, small amount of easily manageable ice at the ridge. Will be back for spring wildflowers.

Very pleasant trail this time of year. About 1/3 forested, 1/3 switch backs, 1/3 ascent from the saddle. The saddle is icy being sheltered from the sun, spikes not needed just walk carefully

Great trail. Few icy patches (Nov 14). Few foco scrambles, but nothing too challenging.

Hiked 11/11/19. Trail was in great condition. Partly wooded and then some nice views along the mountain to the top. Very sunny on the way up around 2pm almost hard to see! Lots of cute dogs. They must be in great shape here. Slipped twice on the way down (towards the top where it was a bit slick). Other than that it was fine. And a shoutout to local friend I met on the trail Maria who drove me out of the park so I could get a Lyft.

Hiked 11/9/19, trail is in great shape, no snow, some small patches of ice but micro spikes not necessary. Lots of Australian shepherds.

Very family friendly and dog friendly. One big loop. Water fountains and bathrooms. Lots of Dogs off leash though. And lots of geese poop but expected for a large pond. Good for just a nice day walk.

I love this trail, this is the third time I've done it. It's a more gradual ascent to Grandeur than going up the west face making it ideal for trail running. Definitely a little slick approaching the summit and I found it a bit challenging coming down, but once you get past the ice you can really jam down, I ran most of the way. I ride my bike up Mill Creek Canyon Rd and lock up at the gate blocking the picnic areas, if you're on a bicycle you don't have to pay any fee when you leave the park.

11/7 Small icy patches near the top but otherwise clear. Beautiful day, great views.

Trail weather was beautiful today. The trail had a little bit of everything: mud, snow, ice, slush & dry ground. It was definitely helpful to throw on the micro spikes. I didn’t bring poles & didn’t find them necessary (but I rarely do). The only surprise was how warm it was. Typically it’s colder & gusty at the top, but it was incredibly mellow. This is a great time to get out.

Great family hiking area. Not hard at all and it has some amazing views of the salt lake valley. Great trail for kids. Plenty of benches to stop and take a rest on while enjoying the views.

Trail Report 11/2/19: Light snow and ice along the creek. Lots of slippery/icy spots above the saddle Made it up without micro spikes but they would have been helpful towards the top.

This trail is amazing for an off leash walk with your pooch. Beautiful scenery and plenty of friends to play with.

It so happened to be a sunny Fall day that the hike up was lovely. Snow patches up higher, but weren’t much of an obstacle. Had a nice picnic at the peak with stunning views of Salt Lake valley. PS After my beautiful hike, I realized my eyeglasses fell out of my backpack! The frames are cream lined with gold. I went back to try to find them today, but it has snowed making it difficult. If anybody finds them, please email me at marleneg365@gmail.com.

Another 5-star rating. I first did this hike in June and it was wonderful. I just did it again on Tuesday, October 22. In the morning, it was a bit icy in some parts and I had to really did in my boots. Many people were turning around after the lookout point because there was so much snow and they were worried about slipping. I made it to the top and the views were stunning! Absolutely gorgeous! On the way down, I had to “boot ski” in many areas, but once I reached a bit past the lookout point it was smooth sailing as the snow and ice had melted. The hike was harder this time and the top is a bit confusing to navigate so bring a map and know where you are. We completed the hike in around 5 or so hours. I highly recommend!

Great views and awesome play structures for the kiddos!

More snow on the trail than I expected. You can't really get past the saddle without spikes. Gorgeous day though!

Absolutely loved this hike! It took us around 5 hours going a very comfortable pace with lots of stops for snacks, water, and taking pictures. We did this is in June on an unseasonably cold day and it was perfect! We are attempting it again tomorrow in the October cold and will report back. The views are incredible!

This is basically a walk inside the park.

I really enjoyed this hike. I had no idea how beautiful the views would being the hike up and that we would get City view near the top. Loved it!

If you have a dog that becomes very scared when random off-leash dogs approach him/her, probably want to avoid this trail. Sadly, we were unaware of just how many off-leash dogs use this trail and had to turn around almost immediately because of this.

Hiked it yesterday. Had snowed the night before but the trail itself was clear when I hit the trail at 2pm. Was at the summit by 345 and back to my car a little after 5. Amazing views across the canyon to some snowcapped peaks, A little past peak fall colors but still definitely worth going!
