The official TH sign is on your right, and parking is on the left.
The trail heads south for a few minutes, and is very well shaded.
However the trail quickly turns west, and you are exposed to the sun. It was VERY hot when we started hiking around noon, so it's best to hike here in the early morning to beat the summer heat.
Tall pine trees lined part of the trail.

You'll work your way up a few switchbacks, and eventually you'll climb enough elevation gain to see across the canyon.

Finally on the ridge, with a view of the Oquirrh Mountains & SLC in the distance, and the darker Grandeur Peak just to the left of my head.
Looking a little more south, you can clearly see Mt. Raymond and Gobbler's Knob.
