This is one of my favorite hiking spots, and it is so beautiful!
It is a very simple hike, and one that my 5 year old and 7 year old absolutely loved! The trail is mainly shaded, and ends at a beautiful waterfall/spring coming out of the mountain. The hike is one mile up, then one mile back. About 3/4 the way up, there is a small meadow that is perfect for a quick stop to have a picnic lunch.
Learning about the different plants
Make sure to take your time and see all of the flowers, small streams, and little nooks on the right hand side on your way up. There are many spots to stop and take pictures.

HOW TO GET THERE:
From Salt Lake City, take I-80 eastbound. When you reach the Heber exit, take that going southbound. Continue on that road and take exit 4 towards Park City / Kamas. Turn left (East) off of the exit. Continue into Kamas, and turn right at the first light. Keep going, then turn left onto UT 35 / Main Village Way. Continue on that road for a while until you see mile marker 11, then watch for the Nobletts Trailhead parking area on your left a little ways up the road.
