    The hike is pretty, a little steep but not too challenging, and the proximity to SLC was nice. It costs $5 to get into the area where this trail is located. Also, I recorded on strava, followed the trail as it’s shown on Gaia, and I measured 5 miles total out and back, with 1,338 total elevation gain. I’m not sure which is correct but I have a fair amount of hiking experience and this didn’t feel like 3,000+ gain to me.

    3 mile dirt road is rough. Cars can make it but not low riding cars. Saw a couple of nice cars coming up and I thought, “mistake”. Clean bathrooms and good parking, fee area. Trail is well defined till the last .2. Two creek crossings; first is easy with logs, second is at the 1 mile point about and there are easier dry up-stream crossings if you don’t want to walk through the 9-12 inch deep main crossing point. From that point on you will enjoy multiple cascading falls that make this a great hike. At mid May there was still ice in the lake which was being fed by several high waterfalls, it was worth it! The first .5 is easy, the second mile or next 1.0 is moderate, however, due to the altitude and the steep almost scramble like trail towards the end, I’d say the last .7 is difficult. In fact the last .25 was no fun at all. Still, very worth it. We stopped sightseeing often going up and it took us 2:20 minutes, while going down took about 1:15. Hope you find this useful.

    One of my favorite trails in Farmington. Up the benches, through the pines, across a steam, ending up on top of a rocky overlook. 3,400 ft of elevation gain. This is mid-way to Bountiful peak, hence the name “Midway Peak”. Keep going and you end up at Bountiful park.

    1/13/2021 - Great hike and very beautiful. Not crowded at all in mid-January. We saw 6 other people. Microspikes are a must, but snowshoes were not necessary. The trail is well-tracked. We went up Grove Creek and down Battle Creek. Not much snow near the trailheads, but plenty of snow/ice in the shade. The falls were frozen and very beautiful. Highly recommend at least hiking to the falls.

    Low snow conditions exposed plenty of brush, so the descent featured plenty of bushwhacking and traversing to find a clear path down. Still, we found some short unobstructed areas near the top and had a great time on the way up! Would definitely return in better conditions.

    Late October trip so the fall colors were gone. Would be pretty when colors were at the peak. This is an easy out and back. Quite a bit of beaver activity as I saw a number of dams along the stream that the trail parallels. It was a cloudy date with light sleet falling so no problems with the temperature. The first mile or so is completely un-shaded so would be hot in the summer. Was looking for a hike that I could do relatively quickly and keep my heart rate in the aerobic fat burning zone. Perfect trail for that.

    I’m up in this area constantly and had never taken up this peak. It’s a steep mutha but thankfully short. Views are some of the best in Utah. I ascended the from the South and descended via the North and of the two I recommend the South approach for sure.

    Beautiful hike that features everything you could ask for. Definitely a bit of a butt kicker as it just keeps climbing for nearly 2 hours (3.5 miles to the lake) and coming back down is not much easier as there are quite a few boulders and some scrambling. But well worth it! You can even see the great salt lake in the distance. On my way down I also saw too huge moose right next to the trail. Very pretty fall colors 10/14. I clocked in at 7 miles/4 hours/2700ft ascent. Happy hiking, enjoy!

    So much variety! It starts off pretty and easy, as you duck off the road and start slowly climbing the side of the canyon. At this time, the ground was nice and hard (frozen) in the morning. It was brisk, but a jacket wasn’t needed once we started moving. We were able to get sub-25-minute miles on mile 1 and 3. We reached the lake and started attacking our way to the summit. Other reviews are correct — DO NOT GO LEFT to get to the ridge. We traversed a blade’s edge scramble. Foolish. Especially since there were better routes up. It was also slower. After that, we quickly got to the final ridge before the towering summit. That was quite the ridge! It was more difficult than the earlier mentioned blade’s edge you run into if you go left, attacking the ridge between White Pine and Pfiefferhorn. Only 2 of a group of ten attempted it — we went with those two. It’s nice to have someone else with you on this! Take it slow and steady, don’t be foolish, and then it’s no big deal. The final ascent was beasty.It get for every step forward you moved, you climbed three feet. Getting to the top, swaddled in a cloud, was incredible. The winds were pushing the fog fast, so we’d get brief glimpses of what lay beyond. It often appeared as if the drops descended into nothingness with the fog! The way down was a bit challenging to navigate as snow hid the trail heading back to Red Pine lake. But this was incredible. I’d definitely go again.

    Nice hike, definitely a butt kicker. I do prefer trails over fire roads and this hike is almost entirely on a fire road with lots of lose rocks and scramble. Lake was very cold and water level was low in late September. I saw some decent sized fish, but didn’t catch anything with my tenkara. Took us the better part of 6 hours roundtrip.

    Wifey and I hiked to Abes lake today. Didn’t see anyone else on the trail or at the lake. Was a beautiful hike. 3 creek crossings and one dry crossing about a half mile or so from lake. After the third crossing it was an uphill climb. We are not from Utah and assume Utah doesn’t know what switchbacks are. Kidding. We did get off trail once on the way in and once on way out. Followed the trail but it didn’t correspond with the dash trail lines on Gaia.This has happened to me on a few hikes. Don’t know if the trails need updated and not sure how Gaia verifies the accuracy of the trails. Anyway it made for a wonderful hike

    Beautiful hike. We started at about 07:30, reached the summit around 13:00, and back to the car at 17:00. We took lots of pictures — the fall colors for the first four miles were stunning!! Not much shade after that. Getting to the saddle was rewarding. The path to the summit was steep and intimidating. The summit is only about 8 feet wide or so. A treacherous 1,000 foot cliff on the east side overlooks emerald lake. I was hit with altitude sickness before hitting the saddle on the way down. So our journey to the car was pretty difficult. Our dogs did great! We hike with them a few times a year (golden retrievers) and they didn’t face any issues.

    Nice hike. Lot is always full, but there is ample parking along the road. One mile to the split between Red and White Pine Trails. It is 3.56 miles to the lake. Plenty to see and it is a nice walk around the lake. Late September and no rain in a while so the lake water level is low. Few spots to camp look nice.

    The hike from the trailhead gains slight elevation and is beautiful and is quite level until you reach the fork to either head straight ahead to Broadbent meadow or fork left to head up towards the lake. The elevation from there is intense for most of the rest of the hike. Once at the lake though it absolutely takes your breath away and is worth every hard earned step. Trout in the lake of a good size. Fresh water source into the major lake on the south side. Stunning. Lodge pole pines primarily.

    An amazing hike that was a real adventure. We chose probably the hottest day of the year to do it, and we all got a little heatsick and dehydrated because of it. There is little to no shade on this entire hike, and there are no water sources, so pack TONS of water (at least 3 liters per person) and sun protection. The first three miles from the trailhead are relatively easy and very scenic as you pass through high sub-alpine meadows and wildflowers via a well-marked dirt trail. However, once you reach the shoulder and trail junction for North Nebo, that’s when the hard part begins. You descend to Wolf Pass, then have nearly 1400 feet of elevation gain in just over a mile. Much of the final half mile is entirely through scree and loose rock on very exposed ridges, so watch your footing. Trekking poles are highly recommended, especially for coming down. However, despite the climbing, the heat, the dehydration, and the altitude, it was an AMAZING hike with an amazing view at the end. You are at the very top of the Wasatch Range!

    Great views from the top. Scramble is very manageable. The flat miles feel pretty annoying and long on the way out. I enjoyed the loop part into the basin, recommend if you have the time. The shorter way is a bit steep and loose in the incline section, then going over the rock field is a bit of a pain. But it definitely cuts time and distance if you need that.

    Great overview trail of the area. Elevation change is moderate, nice that it is broken up into two sections. Trails are easy and nothing technical. Saw a few moose. Took a bit over 5 hours with generous breaks and lunch stop. Some shaded areas but a lot is exposed to sun in the middle of the day. Sunrise peak would be a good addition if you have extra time and energy.

    This was the hardest single track that I have ever done. After going off track and ending just 4ft off a steep hill, it took me all of 1 hour to rescue my bike up the hill. It took 50ft of rope, a tree and lots of grunts and colorful language, I finally got the bike out. Scenery was worth the blood, sweat and tears. Very steep sections both ascending and decent.

    A great recovery hike after bagging Box Elder Peak yesterday. A nice steady climb for 2 miles on a wide trail that’s well-graded. Near the turn-off the waterfall, you start rock hopping on a small stream that forms on the trail. From the turn-off to the waterfall, you have some loose fitting and short steep slopes, but it’s nothing too bad. Amazing waterfall with a great view toward the valley. A nice quick after-work hike :-)

    The first 3.6 miles from the Deer Creek trailhead was a little overgrown in spots with some water on the trail at the start, but otherwise was very nice. A gradual ascent with nice switchbacks. The last 1.5 miles from the meadow to the summit were very tough. Lots of bushwhacking since the trail isn't marked very well (lots of it looks wiped out from avalanche debris from the winter that hasn't been cleared yet), so having Gaia was essential. Also, still quite a few tricky spots with snow and ice, so having spikes is essential (ice axe is helpful, but not needed). Finally, lots of scree in the final mile, so watch your footing. The views were INCREDIBLE from the summit. Happy to have bagged it on a sunny and cool day with calm winds.

    My first 11er since moving to Utah! Took the Deer Creek/Dry Creek Trail up for about 3.6 miles until I reached a nice meadow where the trail splits. This 3.6 miles was very nice and scenic with great views of Box Elder. Switchbacks and gradual climbs, too, with a pleasant rate of ascent. When you turn south from the meadow to make your final approach to Box Elder, it becomes a real challenge. About 1600 feet of elevation gain in just over a mile. Also, had to do lots of bushwhacking as the trail isn’t marked very well (lots of the trail looks damaged by avalanche debris from the winter). There were also some tricky spots with snow and ice, so spikes and an ice axe are good ideas. Finally, the last mile has a lot of scree and it’s easy to slip, so use caution. But if you can make it past this, you’re rewarded with an AMAZING summit view! This was an AWESOME trip. Plan to come back another day to bag the South Peak and SE Peak, but for now, the main peak (11,101 feet) will do!

    Great trail for a middle aged couple. We started around 8:00 Saturday morning. Just a few people on the trail. It took us about 50 minutes to get to primrose overlook using the Horse flat trail. The last stretch was pretty steep. The view was amazing and worth the climb. We returned by way of lame horse trail. Total time on trail 2 hours. The Trail was in great condition. Wildflowers starting to bloom and the aspen grove was heaven. I will do this hike again.

    Dry Canyon was beautiful! So green and lots of shade. However it is very steep in parts. 3000 elevation gain. Coming down Battle Creek Canyon used to be so shady and beautiful. Now not so much since they did “recent trail improvements”. Maybe in a few years it will fill in again. Big Baldy overlook gave a great view of the valley below.

    5/17/20 This loop would be a great run without the snow on the backside. The trail is hard pack until you reach the snow on the trail. Then, snow or mud and sometimes good trail. Dog lake still has snow around it and ice in it but is mostly clear. It’s beautiful. If you take the trail up to the peak, it will be snow covered for the majority. Some sections of trail or muddy and cannot be stepped in without sliding down. The trail does not switch back much, but charges straight up the hill. It’s much like you’re on a stairmaster… If the stairmaster occasionally gives away under foot! Worth it though.

    This has been my favorite summit so far in the Wasatch Range. It’s a pretty heavy-duty climb to the summit. There’s 4100 feet of elevation gain in 3.4 miles, with almost 2000 feet of it in the final mile, so the higher you get, the steeper it gets. The final quarter-mile is a very steep and semi-technical rock scramble to the top. Me and my two friends went up it on 4/1/20 and the trail was very easy to follow. The second half was entirely in snow, so we needed to use our spikes and trekking poles. For the final scramble, there was a lot of snow and ice, and so it was very challenging and a little dangerous at times to make it to the top, and it was even more dangerous coming down because the sun was starting to soften the snow and ice (so I recommend starting early if you do a late winter or early spring hike). Took a lot of time and patience...and some slightly sweaty palms...to make it down. If we could do it again, we would bring an ice axe with us to help on the scramble. But the view at the saddle before the final scramble and the final view at the top were AMAZING. Well worth the hard climb, and it was a fun adventurous day hike.

    This is a fun hike for getting a quick bit of exercise in. It is deceptively challenging especially on a hot day. The 'caves' at the end are wind carved tunnels with views of...highway 89. The view is a little disappointing, but you still get to see the forest in Logan Canyon, and it is beautiful.

    Big Springs-Shingle Mill Short Loop: I have hiked this pretty trail in the summer and it was very nice. However, it makes a really wonderful winter trail with light snow shoes. It starts near the Big Springs Trailhead, but on a Jeep/ATV trail on the opposite side of the parking lot. It ascends for probably half a mile (north portion of the loop) and drops onto a gorgeous meadow valley. Crossing the meadow you join the Shingle Mills Trail, and enter deciduous forest. This circles a foothill ridge where the foliage becomes typical of the scrub trees at lower elevations Utah Valley. It then turns north through some more dense deciduous forest with some pine, and drops into another pretty meadow. Crossing this meadow you eventually join back up to the more heavily trafficked Big Springs Trail heading back to the trailhead. Although it is only 3 miles it has the feel of a longer hike, perhaps as you hike through such diverse terrain. I really enjoyed the beauty of this hike.

    Very enjoyable. May not be best for kids under 10 unless active hikers particularly in the winter. Some slippery spots yesterday where additional traction aides encouraged (hiking poles, reliable winter hiking boots, Yak Traks,etc.). If opting to go in hot springs remember to bring a pair of dry extra socks/clothes/undergarments and BEWARE of the frozen ground getting in and out of springs. Will want to go with plenty of daylight or dress very quickly to avoid get extremely chilled in hands and feet and potential hypothermic.

    We took Clyde Lake trail out to summit Mt Watson. Since it was mid November, the trail had snow on it but it was packed down since we had not received snow in 2 weeks. We passed Cliff lake and the turned west (left ) just after Petite Laje , which was frozen. There is no trail up to the summit so we bushwhacked through trees and snow and then started the long, steep climb up.

    This is a beautiful hike on a well-designed trail. I did in on October 21, 2019. There was a little snow on the trail; less than an inch most places, but up to four inches in some areas on top. Still, the walking was pretty easy. The lower parts of the trail were muddy and slippery on the return, as it thawed in the afternoon. The main trail skirts around several minor peaks along the ridge, staying fairly level, but there are branches that follow the ridge more closely. I recommend the easier main trail on the way up, and the more challenging ridge trail if you have the energy coming down.

    It was the worst of times and the best of time. The first few miles of this hike are ugly and hot as you trudge up horseshit-peppered dirt road without shade. You graduate onto a single-track through endless scrub oak but when finally emerge, you’re in some of the most beautiful granite and pine landscapes in Utah...and usually all to yourself. The first time I did this hike I saw one other person. Yesterday I saw three. Very dramatic area with lots of peak add-on options, including Box Elder, Bighorn, South Thunder, and Lone Peak itself. Bring lots of water and a good hat.

    This hike has it all. The approach trail is moderate but a bit rocky in places. above the upper Red pine lake it gets steep with loose rock. You have to negotiate a knife edge ridge scramble with a little exposure and then a crazy steep hike to the summit on loose rock. Be careful it is easy to take a header on the way down.

    This is a vigorous hike but well worth it. A few things to be aware of though. 1. It’s hot and you’ll need plenty of water 2. There’s a little scrambling near the Summit but don’t worry, it’s pretty trivial. 3. I didn’t see any but reports are that the rattlers are out. 4 There’s a lot of nettle along the trail before you climb out above the drainage - wear shorts at your own risk.

Otherwise the trail is in good shape. I turned back at 8300 feet elevation where the deep snow hides the trail. This will be a great hike in late July after the snow melts.

    Willow lake is beautiful. We got to see it surrounded by snow and it was still thawing. There were a ton of marmots and a few ducks. Post holing through the snow added to the experience. We couldn’t see the trail but it wasn’t an issue since we were guided by gps.

    White pine never disappoints! By 10 or so the snow had gotten really soft. Was happy to have the snowshoes.

    This is a good prep hike for many of the "destination" hikes offered by the WF. Easy access, and can be hiked year round (if you can stand a little snow and cold). With Jan/Feb drifts some care is required in the narrow cliff areas between mile 1.5 and 2. Good variable scenery and wildlife. In this area I have seen: Snakes, skunk, [someone else's video of a] bear, lizards, moose, deer, rams, rabbits, birds of all types, elk in the upper region, wild turkeys... and I am probably forgetting something. It took the course of 5 years of hiking to see all of those, but they are all there, and then some I am sure!

    The trail was rather muddy, icy, and slushy due to the epic snow fall we have had this year, this past week's rain, and the warmer sun that cropped up over the past few days. Despite that, we got up fine to the top in 2 hours and 30 minutes with microspikes. The lower elevation was green and lovely while the upper trail still had a lot of snow. This trail is really enjoyable. It is super green in the spring and rather shady for most of it in the summer and fall. If you want a quick yet steep trail to the top for an excellent view of Salt Lake City, this is your hike. It is a traditional trail with a simple single track dirt trail from the bottom to the top. The end has some awesome rocks that outcrop over the valley that any famous instagramers will love (sorry instagram husbands, you're going to be taking a lot of pictures).

    An alternative start / end location is Red Butte Road. There's some parking along the road as well as by the gate about 0.2 miles past the Red Butte Garden outdoor theatre gates. I love this hike because it clocks in at right about an hour which makes it great for a lunch break (in winter) or before / after work (summer). Consider bringing microspikes when there's snow / ice. You'll probably be fine without but I like having them available on this hike.

    Fun route. Some off piste travel.

    Short but a vigorous climb. The views at the top are great. I found it rather busy, even on a winter weekday. The trail was well packed snow all the way up.

    It’s okay if you’re a wuss and you like this sort of thing.

    The first snows of the season were on the shaded parts of the trail. Not much accumulation yet but not sure that will last long.

    Short and sweet. The trail split to the left just a 100’ from the trailhead is less steep than going to the right. The Lake is low but the moose doesn’t seem to mind.
