We acknowledge that this trail is located on the traditional territory of Núu-agha-tʉvʉ-pʉ̱ (Ute).
This is one of our favorites! Dramatic views at the top of Rock Canyon, fields of wildflowers in the spring/summer (if you can time it right), and panoramic views of Utah Valley featuring Utah Lake and the best view of Mount Timp!
Driving to the trailhead takes you along a twisted paved road which turns into a bumpy dirt road for the last 15 minutes or so. Higher clearance and AWD is recommended! The majority of the hike is an easy, gradual incline, but the last bit is very steep so be prepared. The trail is exposed so sunscreen and hats are recommended to avoid that midday sun.
The road to this trail is closed in the Winter, so only opportunity to hike it is in the Spring/Summer! We recommend the Spring to avoid the desert heat.
