Ok, this hike is easy because it's not too long, but it does have a good consistent elevation gain, so take your time and take breaks if you feel your legs start to burn.
I don't recommend this one for under five unless you take it slow, but my teens love it.
The view in the fall is much to be desired, but spring and winter and EVERYTHING! For hiking gear in the winter, waterproof boots, an inexpensive puffer vest, and spikes is all you need. Depending on the day, I add a beanie or gloves if it's really cold.
Holly, just showing off.
Definitely need spikes! These are the spikes I love.
Incredible views of the Ogden Valley.
I swear, every time I go hiking I run into someone from this community. It is SO fun and I LOVE when you stop and say hi. Totally makes my day.
