Neffs Canyon Trail

I don't think it should be rated difficult- I am not in top shape and I can do it without a problem as well as my younger child. I see small kids- 6 and up on the trail. It's a nice place to take your dog and it is free. The first leg of the trail is a little boring b/c it is straight and just goes up to a flat area you can rest in and your dog can get a drink before you go up to the right or left. One year we went to the left toward Big Cottonwood ridge and some hikers warned us a black bear was about a 1/2 mile up. So we turned back because of our dog. This spring we were shocked to see no water. Usually the snow melt causes streams and there was only one trickle on the right trail that led up to a small pool. We thought the trail would be flooded as they usually are in spring. But it is very dry up there this spring because of little snowfall over winter. Overall, my family likes this hike a lot and we have gone frequently. The trail head parking area is a great area to watch the sunset over the Salt Lake Valley.

Gorgeous day to be out doing ANYTHING in the mountains...so my daughter and I tried getting to Red Pine Lake. With 14" of new snow from the weekend, it was a lot more work than we thought so we only made it 4 miles round-trip.

Beautiful. but I didn't personally have the fitness for it. I want to hike it again at the end of the summer and see how much easier it will be.

Great hike!! Watch the weather though because we hiked in a severe windstorm and it made the hike a little rough being on some ridges and open areas. Beautiful view though and the weather definitely made it memorable. Saw 3 herds of bison and a bunch of birds. Definitely a great hike.

A short hike. Nice views of the snow capped mountains in the spring months. Best hiked in the cooler months as there is no shade on the island.

Cassidy Arch Trail

Hiked Cassidy Arch Trailhead at Grand Wash. Difficult rise to begin, straight up the side of the rock. A bit sketchy for someone who isn't used to doing this type of hiking. I did take hiking poles and they did help quite a bit coming back down. It was a nice hike, about 650' climb and 3 miles. Not for faint hearted, but if you want to feel strong and sense of accomplishment - that's what it did for me.

Hickman Bridge Trail

A good trail to see the bridge, a bit of a climb for a flatlander, but not too difficult. Trail rises about 450' then levels off, into a wash area that is sandy in places. The bridge is a nice one that would be accessible to many.
