My wife and I hiked the mostly level portion of this trail in mid-October 2016 while on a 5-park hiking tour of Utah’s national parks. This hike’s trailhead is at Gifford House and it runs beside the river, so it is a pleasant change to hear the river sounds and to have a hike that does not include dramatic elevation changes. It was very peaceful and we were mostly alone on the hike. We walked partway up the slope at the end so we could get a higher view of the river.

This was well worth the small amount of effort. It was relaxing and the colours were gorgeous. It's not the craziest hike we did on our Utah trip, but it was a favourite.

This was a trail with a little bit of everything!

First you start off on a nice easy walk along the river. Then you come upon an apricot orchard. They were ripe so we were able to pick some. They were really good. My 11 year old granddaughter stated she had no idea she liked apricots! There were irrigation ditches for the trees that were still working too.

Then we went through a pretty dense area of shrubbery type plants, then we started climbing up the mountain side. The trail was pretty well maintained. Not actually a hard climb, some parts were steep but not too bad. I am 57 with a bad back and had to rest often but we made it too the top.

The trail kept going but we saw some really nice scenery and wanted to do some other trails so we turned around. Took us about an hour and a half but if you are younger and in good shape you could probably do it in much less time.

Best of all, no crowds at all. We only passed a few people on the trail. Nothing like Zion and Bryce where the trails got pretty crowded.

Don't let the flat path at the start fool you as this trail has a steep grade to navigate. No scrambling. Just steep. Views at top were good. We noticed a few hikers head back after the first lookout.

Seems like an easy hike at the beginning by the river then the hike up begins! Beautiful views. It is along the edges of the mountain so a little tough for those afraid of heights like me. But worth it. You can do it. Give yourself time to sit and enjoy the view at the top. Not crowded at all.
