Kind of new at this so just echo most of the last few posts. Hiked on 10 Oct, less than a dozen or so folks on the trail. Very nice mid morning hike. Nothing special needed here this time of year other than water. Saw what seemed to be regulars fast pacing and jogging some sections without anything at all.
The falls is worth the trip to see. The very first part on the switchback from the trail head is a bit misleading, it gets better quickly after you enter the canyon.
Can't wait to bring family back here and will do it again just to show them.
great hike. waterfall is beautiful.
did see a rattlesnake on the trail, so be aware.
i'm a dog owner and as there are limited trails in SLC where dogs are allowed, i was excited to take my pup along. however, i was extremely disappointed with the amount of dog poop on the trail. fellow down owners, pick up your dogs poop! don't ruin it for the rest of us.
First part of the hike is the sunniest as there's not much shady. The hike also doesn't get very exciting until later on in the trail. We went earlier in the morning and it wasn't that busy. The waterfall is gorgeous with lots of shaded areas and there's certain places you can find to picnic. However, by the time we came down (around noon), the heat was at its peak and my dog's paws started to burn so we put on his shoes to help with the hot pavement.
The beginning of the trail isn't exciting- once you hear the water and see the first waterfall (diverting) off the trail you know it's going to be good.
Took my 2 wiener dogs and they did amazingly well! The waterfall and different colors of fall was so pretty! Some sharp rocks going up and down, just watch your step...
