1st time unsure. 3rd ascent on 2/9/13 alone in snowshoes.
Though the picnic area was packed there were a few parkings spots remaining at the trailhead. Maybe saw fifteen people throughout the whole hike. Fun evening hike!
Nice route to the top...climbed 6 Nov, no snow, clear trail. Popular with runners, families, and most of Salt Lake City. Get there early before the crowds hit! 0800, I was third car along the road, by the time I got down, cars were parked for a quarter mile!
Nice trail, but way too many people.
