Good view of pretty much the entire salt lake. You can also head back into the mountain a little bit. Going to check it out again for sure.

decent short hike for an afternoon. I'd rate it more to the easy side. good early hike to stretch the legs.

It was a great hike. Taking a "shower" is really refreshing once you get there.

Favorite hike in northern Utah in the 2-4 hour range. Not to challenging but you should have some good endurance, the worst part is absolutely the first set of switchbacks in sand.

An easy hike in the warm months. Quite tricky before all the snow melts. Very busy on the weekends. Beautiful canyon views the whole way up.

Excellent weather! Very beautiful with very little foot traffic. Completed this hike in ~2 hours roundtrip. Minor snow but didn't pose any obstacles. The waterfall was amazing and the view of the valley at the beginning is incredible!
