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.
It was a beautiful trail, but tricky to find. The ap takes you right to the trailhead, but there's no parking allowed there. You have to park where it's designated for Bonneville shoreline. There's a trail that will take you up to the trailhead for Hobbs Canyon. It's not marked. It begins just a few steps south of the dead end cul-de-sac. You'll see the Bonneville shoreline trail, which is a wider trail. It heads south. To the left of it, there's a narrower trail that heads due east. This is the Hobb's Canyon trail. It follows the north side of the river. I'll add a picture of the beginning of the trailhead to help.

Good hike for the fall and spring months because it is mostly exposed, which would be miserable during the summer months. It has many climbs and a few steep hills which would be difficult for winter snowshoeing or even with crampons. Some cyclist on the trail. You can hear the highway noises crisply (hwy89) but throughout some of the hike you can also hear the river. Overall it was a nice hike.
This trail was harder than anticipated, felt it in my legs for days following, but worth it! Beautiful views, cool little cabin and a great workout! Thick brush towards the top makes it easy to lose sight of who you're with and the trail! Good idea to keep tracking Device the first time for this reason.
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.
