Very beautiful trail. It’s not well travelled. It could use some switchbacks at the top, it’s very steep. Great view of the mountains and desolation lake.

Did a portion of the Bear trap fork trail yesterday and then went off trail to a ridge/peak to the west of the trail. I found a red block marker on the ridge with the number 32 on it, does anyone know what the meaning is? On the way back I hit the trail again and the river had made its way over the banks and flooded the trail for an eighth of a mile or so.

Saw a massive snake, at least 3 feet

I've done this trail twice with my daughter. Beautiful wild flowers and pine trees. Lots of shade, we went there last June. We had a great time.

Beautiful run! Mostly flat with some steep hills (mostly the beginning) gorgeous views! You can run farther than this route too.

Nice walk, plenty to see to the south, nice and wide to social distance, very little shade, some wildflowers still blooming.

We do the first quarter of this trail on a regular basis. Such a spectacular way to watch the sunset on a Sunday night. We have never gone to the end of the trail because that first quarter is so spectacular and the perfect jaunt for a family with six kids ages 0-13 :). I have a feeling the best part of this hike is at the beginning, not the end....

Thought there would be a ending but the trail continues even after the apps map of the trail ends. We went over time, and there wasn’t anything super grand by the end of it.

This trail was awesome and so fun. About a mile up, it gets super snowy and the snow continues from there. Neither of us had spikes or proper gear, but both have good boots with grip. We decided to continue up and try to summit. You can clearly tell this is often used as a backcountry ski area and the trek up is steep, but there is a pretty obvious trail. I would suggest tracking your hike so you can tell if you’re on the correct trail. Once you’re at the summit, it’s a solid scramble up but if you zig zag or use poles, it’s do-able. The view is amazing! On the way down, we just gunned it. It was so much fun and we just sent it down basically run skiing on our feet the whole way down. If you like a good adrenaline rush, I’d say go for it. I can’t count how many times i wiped out but the slush makes the impact super easy and doesn’t hurt at all unless you nail a tree. We basically ran/slid/foot skied all the way down and it was a blast. I would recommend this trail to a advanced hiker right now. It’s a bit steep and could be scary coming down for someone who isn’t willing to basically slide the whole way. There are areas where your whole leg will sink in snow and slush, but it never felt unsafe for us. With the weather changing, i don’t even know how relevant this will be for a few more weeks. But if you don’t have a backcountry set up and you want some backcountry snow hike fun- do it.

This trail was a blast and was gorgeous. At the peak you could see almost 360°. The first 3/4-1 mile was the only part not covered in snow. Shoes were soaked by the halfway point. Totally worth it though.

This is a very easy hike. The beginning is a pretty big hill but pass that, it’s pretty much flat and straight grounds. It’s a very beautiful hike, peaceful and quiet. There aren’t many people who pass through this trail in the mornings. Great view of the mountains and the Emigration Lake! I would definitely recommend and do it again.

Can’t get to the trailhead as top half of the canyon is closed due to winter/ conditions. Opens July to November.
