Great hike with beautiful small waterfalls and great views. A very territorial mountain goat lives up there and literally went out of its way to chase me and my hiking partner off the hill. So keep a look out!

Nice little hike. Quick exercise.

This was a great hike. Love the waterfalls and river. There was still snow, but I still was in my running shoes. I would say it is not hard, but moderate for beginners.

Great out & back trail. It's been fairly warm here and the trail was relatively clear of ice and snow with the exception of a few patches. Crampons were not necessary, although we couldn't get all the way to the top due to high winds and lots of snow.

Beautiful!

I love this little trail. Very underrated. I usually don’t see anyone else on it. Views of Little dell and the wasatch. Watch out for moose though.

This hiking trail, near Salt Lake City, has historical significance as far as the settling of the Salt Lake Valley and the Mormon Pioneer Trail is concerned. This was actually not one of my favorite trails, but may be more scenic in better weather or in the summertime. Video of trail experience: https://youtu.be/0HgYstKvNcc

You have to bushwack to reach the true summit.

Very steep with some Icy parts glad we had our micro spikes. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

We did this hike yesterday, fairly easy, saw a lot of families. Some good views and elevation climb is not difficult. This was a good hike for someone like me who is new to the area and getting acclimated to the elevation. Caution: you should bring GPS since trail not well marked and it's easy to get off which we did one time (several others we passed would ask us if still on trail). Also, while probably obvious, this late in fall we did encounter areas of ice/snow so while easy hike, bring appropriate footwear.

What a beautiful afternoon for a fall hike! There won't be many more afternoons like this one at such a high elevation. The trail was covered in golden aspen leaves and the weather was crisp and sunny. The only trouble was the work they've recently done on the service road and in felling trees erased the path. We found it again luckily. And thank heaven for the GPS! We somehow started heading down to a lackluster pond before realizing it wasn't Lake Solitude and we were supposed to be heading up toward the lake instead. In other words, the trail wasn't well marked. But the kids (15, 11, 9, and 7) and I had a great time and enjoyed this hike. We saw so many deer!

Beautiful easy hike. Super muddy today.

There are two ways up from the parking lot. Make sure you take the one on the right, it's longer in distance but has less snow and isn't steep. The trail on the left is steep, icy and snowy (and very beautiful.) Great hike in the fall!

Great shady trail. Just completed this today (September 29th) and the trail was very muddy/slushy and snowpacked in some places. There are actually a few trails to get up to Dog Park. Dogs absolutely love this trail though, especially if they are water dogs because of the lake. Parking can a little crazy and you might have to deal with angry people looking for a parking space.

Great hike. Gradual incline. Coverage from the sun is a great plus in the summer. a little chilly this time of year so dress accordingly.

Trail was well marked and not difficult or maybe we are just getting acclimated. Beautiful aspen groves that will be gorgeous in about two weeks. Some are just starting to turn gold. There were moose close to Silver Lake and fortunately there was someone there to guide us away as the bull was a little aggressive due to the approaching mating season. Got a glimpse of them but not good enough to photo.

Excellent hike. I. started the hike at about 3 PM wondering how long it would take to get to the lake with my little Boston terrier. Another fellow hiker informed me that if I took the steeper trail I could get there faster in and out in about 2.5 hours. That is what I did. The hike was a lot steeper than I imagined, it was quite the work out. My dog loved it and so did I, we have been back twice already.

Tips: Dogs off leash on odd days only; $3 park fee upon exit; they accept cash and credit cards.

It lived up to it's reputation.

Saw a moose near Silver Lake! And the best part was, people were keeping a respectful distance and not harassing it.
