Quiet a difficult hike. If your fitness level is not that high then don't go all the way. It's not only going up , you need to come back and it's gets dangerous when you are tired and can trip on a twig even. Overall worth doing it.

I enjoyed this hike a lot, especially the scrambling at the top, and the fall colors and snow capped views were absolutely amazing. I am a huge fan of the diverse nature the Wasatch has to offer, and this one has a little bit of everything. Would be good for me in spring and fall, but a summer hike would be far too brutally hot for my liking. Although there's always loads of cars at the trail head, and the usage says it's heavy, I've experienced way more crowds at the likes of Blanche or Timp, but YMMV. Recommended, but I'd leave those little ones at home!

An excellent hike. The elevation change isn't for beginners but otherwise it's mostly normal walking.

Not as difficult as people say.. at least for this 21 year old and his buddies. took us 2.5 hours to hit the true summit. Right before the stream crossing, it gets really steep and doesn't get any easier for the next 1.5 miles ish? The scramble at the end is fun, in fact, we missed the route which we found on the way down but in all honesty, climbing straight up the South face is so much more fun!! Amazing views in every direction, definitely worth doing at least once a year. don't do in July though, it's hot!!!!

Like going up a really long set of stairs. Pretty steep and hard on the knees. Beautiful view from the top however on a slightly overcast day.

I have climbed Mount Olympus, but not from this "trail"; can somebody show me on a map where this "trailhead" is located?

The first part of the trail views as good as they get of the valley. The second part is like getting punched in the face again and again. The views don't get any better. Not much fun. Another trip, I'd just go to the spring and back.
