Tip: Recommend taking loop clockwise. That way the up you do with the switchbacks which is far more enjoyable, and the down you do in the canyon wash which is super steep is much better done on the down. Do go out to the spur, the Bonneville Shoreline Trail lookout over the valley. Flat and very enjoyable overlook after your incline.
