trail locations for Sandy, Utah

Very easy hike. And very beautiful.

This was a good trail to get a bit of a workout. When I went in November, the reservoir was really low. Around the reservoir, there are a lot of offshoot trails and it's easy to get off the main trail but they eventually all come together. Great views of the mountains.

Easy hike up to beautiful waterfalls. You pass through a neighborhood where there are some really nice houses. Just pay attention to the trail signs when you're in the neighborhood, and they easily direct you up to the waterfall. Short easy hike but worth it.

there's a ton of horse pooh, and the vegetation looked dead. It was a good hike in all.

This was an incredible and intense hike. The last half of the hike was a scramble and at times a bit sketchy. At time it can be difficult to find the trail. If you're at all inclined, the views are well worth it.

This is a popular hike with a well groomed trail. And although the last quarter mile is steep (as depicted on the elevation map) the rest of the hike is moderate at best and to be honest not that interesting. Admittedly the falls and the canyon are quite beautiful. If you continue past the falls, the trail will end in a nice overlook. That said, with all of Utah's beautiful trails, this is not a hike I'd recommend.

favorite hike so far. pretty tough, scary at times, but absolutely incredible. literally as good as it gets

don't think this is the actual devil's castle hike (the one that gets you to the top) but if you value life, don't go to the top! that aside, one of the greatest hikes of my life. and someone built a stone building type thing on the saddle so yeah

What a great hike. Not for the faint of heart. Thank you Maggie Cloud for going with me. Once you get above the lower falls there is some beautiful country to see.

I love this hike! It's a fairly moderate elevation gain until the very end it picks up a bit and there's a long stretch of bouldering rocks up hill. Once you gain the elevation to the water fall, there's a bit of technical hiking to get down to the water fall so just be careful there if it's Icey or wet. But the pay off is worth it, very rewarding views of Salt Lake City as well as the lower waterfall it's self is beautiful.
Several places along the way to use a life straw or water purifier as well.

beautiful hike. was difficult with the snow/ice you were hiking up. would love to do this in the summer

A great trail for beginners! My fiancé and I just moved here and this was the first hike we went out and it was a great starting hike!

This one is great for someone who wants a good work out... Many rocks and boulders, but the scenery makes up for the technicality. Word of caution, there are many slick spots with the snow, ice and mud.
