Did this route in reverse ending at the campground then running about a mile and a half back up the road to the trailhead. It was harder than I expected but beautiful nonetheless. The trailhead was pretty packed but I only passed one group on the trail. The spring towards the end was pretty cool and my dog definitely enjoyed it! Took a little over 2 hours to complete but I stopped to take in the views a decent amount.
Will definitely do it again!

A great walk for the family. There are a couple stream crossings near the beginning. You could wade through at knee height, but there are logs and boards you can cross on. Great scenery. Not many hikers there yet (early May). The road is closed about 0.5 miles before the trailhead, so you have to leave your car there and walk up the road a bit.

trail was adventurous and fun! We didn't get to do the whole trail because we had kids with us, but the part we did hike was fun!

My husband, 18 month old son and I hiked this yesterday, Dec. 29th.
It was hard to find the trail at first but once we found it it was a great hike. You end up at squaw peak forest road.
I would recommend bringing snowshoes for the 2nd half of the trail!

My GPS took me up Spring Oaks Drive where the trailhead was a little hard to see, but there was a sign that said something about no motorized vehicles. it was in a neighborhood and I wasn’t sure where to park… I was lucky that someone is outside who was really friendly and told me I could park just on the curb pointed out the trailhead. The trail itself was nice! Pretty rocky and pretty dry, so running with a little more challenging.

The dirt road to the water tank is closed so I had to park up and around the corner, adds about 0.5 miles one way. The trail doesn't get too steep but there's a few places with a lot of loose rocks, especially if you connect up to the summit. But I didn't see a single person and the view is worth it!

Fun little trail. At the top I connected to trail 759 to ascend to the summit with a beautiful view to Spanish Fork Peak and Mount Nebo in the distance.

Quite steep the whole way up and on some loose rocks. Gorgeous view of the valley tho, and a fair amount of shade. The perfect summer escape hike. Getting up the Squaw Peak road wasn't all that hard and I could have done it in a passenger car probably. Lots of cool little lizards. We continued on past the overlook to do the Powerhouse summit, required a bit of brush beating through a faint trail along the ridgeline but we made it!

Very mellow, decently shaded. Nice because it was rather quiet, but not a whole lot to see and it ends pretty quickly. Looks like there's opportunity to continue in other directions at the top.

I just tried this hike for the first time and really enjoyed it. There are lots of wildflowers and butterflies right now. It ends in a grassy-meadow area between peaks with a really pretty view of some snow-capped (for now) peaks in the distance. From there you can take trails to your right or left for a longer hike. To begin the hike, park where Center St dead ends and walk along the dirt road until just past the water shed where you will come to a gate - take the trail off to your left just before the gate (trail not marked).

I run/hike this trail almost every week with my dogs. It's starts moderately on a dirt road it quickly narrows to a rocky trail. Middle section is super Rocky, a lot of loose rocks. Makes it hard to run. Good area to slow down and hike. Save the ankles. The top reaches a T at the pole Haven dirt road. If you take it to the left you can follow the pole Haven Road all the way to squaw Peak. Take a right and you'll head down to hobble Creek Canyon. Can finish the run on pavement out of hobble creek, back to town, returning to the trailhead to get a challenging 14 mile run.

Love this trail! I hike it often. I hiked it today (Oct 19). It's still steep and rocky as ever. It's a bit windy at the top and the leaves have all fallen. But it's still great weather and well worth it!

Great trail! It gets narrow in some spots, and it can be pretty steep. Not a beginner trail. But it's well worth it! It's incredibly green, and all around a fun hike. My dog did great, too and she is a Mini Aussie.

I have hiked this trail overbthe years and also enjoy how secluded it is. It is a very quiet trail with very little traffic. Moderately steep with the middle portion being rocky bit this turns back to smooth dirt trail about 1.5 miles up. Early morning start is best due to it being very open and exposed the whole way.

Beautiful trail, without the crowding of the Provo Canyon Trail.
