Ramparts Trail - Spectra Point

Didn't really intend to hike the whole trail at the time--so glad that we did! My daughter and I started out at the Visitor Center with the intent of going on the Alpine Pond trail. It was our first day in Utah and the 10,000 elevation was like cotton in my ears. The view even at the Visitor Center is absolutely gorgeous. We were just going to go to the first viewpoint and then headed all the way out to the end of the trail. Quite a bit of up and down and into the forest. It was late afternoon and we only encountered two people on the trail. Several animals delighted us--marmots, deer, squirrels. The contrasts of color along the trail was wonderfully appealing as was the beautiful vista! We particularly loved the Bristlecone Pines.

Absolutely amazing views and great shorter trails through charming woods and meadows with more great views of the canyon.

Beautiful View! It is a bit steep, but we took a 5 year old and a 3 year old and they made it :-)

Lower loop was still covered with lots of snow and mud in spots. Manageable but got shoes wet. Pond is pretty. Upper loop was dry but didn't have as nice of a overlook of the canyon as the lower loop.

Great trail. Moderate difficulty. 4 miles total if you go to the second overlook. A little of everything. Beautiful overlooks, wildlife (marmots), flowers, pine forests. A bit steep in parts and 2 feet wide in some other spots with steep drop offs to the side of the trail so not for anyone with impaired mobility or young kids. Overall beautiful place.

Loved this trail. Absolutely beautiful and and easy one for our 5year old daughter. We saw a family of dear on the trail and plenty of chipmunks. Easy, fun, relaxing. Bring a sweatshirt. Even in the summer it can be pretty chilly.
