Decently interesting hike and then the arch at the end is incredible.

Snow, ice, and mud, but a great hike! Somehow I didn't make it to the falls, the trail just ended at the river. I'll go back in the summer and see where I went wrong. The road is closed so you have to hike in from the main road.

Great easy hike for anyone, especially for the kids.There was snow and ice on most of the trail this morning. Make sure to take gloves that’s something I was regretting not having with me.

wonderful hike

i went sunday. the alternate route is from sheeps creek road. about 10-15 miles past diamond fork. once you make the left on sheeps creek road, another 11 miles of windy road. trailhead is on the left. you can see my recording to get an idea of where you start. hope this helps

Super easy, super crowded. Snow shoe this one. It’s not bad though. Falls are pretty cool.

The problem with Donut Falls and the reason for my 2 Star Rating is because it was as crowded as when you go to Disney Land waiting on your favorite ride on a Saturday and admission to Disney Land is Free for the first time ever......

Although I am exaggerating Donuts Falls was way too crowded for my tastes!

This was a fun, short hike. We walked from Nunns Park up to the trailhead and then hiked to the falls. very beautiful waterfall and a close hike to get away from the city life! To get up close to the falls there is a bit of a scramble but the rest of the hike is fine. Steep, but short and doable for all.

Steven-how do you get to the alternate trail??

One of my new favorites!! Fun fun fun. . With great views and smells from the fresh air infused with the creek and the fall colors! Get your blood pumping .

Not my cup of tea. Flat. too crowded. Short walk. Good walk w/ younger kids.

Called the ranger station and diamond fork was still closed, she didn’t know when they would reopen it. So I went and used the alternate trail. Very steep and strenuous compared to the normal trail, but still did it in about an hour each way. Had the whole place to myself, but water levels are low in all the pools, and the river was nice and muddy today. I posted pictures too in case anybody wants to see.

The road was closed as of a couple days ago due to fire related things. If you must know, call the Spanish fork ranger station and inquire if the diamond fork road is open again yet or not.

So the ‘trail’ is closed? Or the gate for the road is closed? I’ve hiked to it when the gate was closed.

Those anyone know if the trail is open now?

A beautiful, short hike. Lots of flowers, bees, and birds in the late spring and a few small meadows and lookouts. The main overlook is stunning and there is a flat space at the top perfect for a picnic. There is also a meadow half way up where we relaxed and had some snacks. If you turn off the trail occasionally there are some little overlooks along the way.

A great hike for beginners, kids, and those looking to take a short trip into nature.

Trail is still closed as of Oct. 1st due to the fires. I'm not sure how to find updates. The fire wasn't listed on the map.

Nice hike, a little tricky without good shoes due to loose shale.

Easy walk to beautiful hot springs. Not crowded when we went early in the morning. The trail is mostly flat and very well maintained. The hot springs are just as colorful as they look in the pictures. Many are too hot to swim in so be careful. Definitely going back.

FYI trail currently CLOSED related to fire.
I only gave 5 star so it wouldn’t drop the rating.
Plan to come back another time

Beautiful, easy hike and we even saw a moose up close :)

Super fun trail! Nice waterfall at the end.

Nice little walk with a very cool waterfall and rock formation.

Fun hike for the family, including 2 young kids and 2 small dogs.
