Really nice trail located in Park City. Nice view of the Canyons. Nice Aspen and Pine to walk through. A little steep in some places but a great day hike

First, the trailhead is located at the end of Iron Canyon Ct, Park City. You'll find limited on-street parking, 4 or 5 spots near the trailhead.

Like others have said, it's pretty much an uphill trek through mostly forest, and some Aspen groves. The only real view is when you get to the top where you will have a nice view over old town Park City and Park City ski resort. There also a bench there dedicated in memory of Karen Daley. Nice short hike that will get your heart pumping!

Nice short hike to a pretty view of Park City. Microspikes would have been helpful, but totally doable in trail shoes. The trail does split once you get to the viewpoint, so it would be nice to check out the rest of the trail.

We did this hike in the evening. Not hot, pleasant and maybe a bit chilly (i had a light jacket on). Mostly up the hill. Beautiful view on Park City and valley. And on the way back we saw a deer.

This was a great little hike. It's 30 minutes to the overlook and the. 25 minutes down. Total time will be 60 minutes depending on how long you stay at the overlook. There is a great view of park city and surrounding area (see pics). There are no water features on this hike but most of the hike is in the shade due to trees.

The review from Hollen Partington was not accurate regarding the incline. You will be walking uphill, hence the term "hike;" but this is not a very steep hike and it's only 1.1 miles to the overlook!!!

Hidden Gem inside of Park city. No parking at the trail head because its a residential street. Trail is steep, with lots of rocks and roots to navigate. Mostly shaded the whole way. At the top there is a bench to sit on and views of Park City & the King Kon Chair. Many people Hike up this in the winter & Sled down, Just be sure to yell incoming to the hikers so they can get out of your way when sledding down

Was uphill and steep the entire way! Not my cup of tea, very little views. Very crowded, went Saturday morning around 11 and in one hour saw 8 people. To steep for my liking! Not easy!
