It's awesome and very beautiful!

Great hike, the main waterfall is about 100 yds past the bridge and at that point feel that it goes from easy to moderate. The falls are beautiful! Rest of the hike up to the end of the red trail marker it moderate. Seeing all the smaller falls makes it worth it. Plan or doing the big loop here and hitting the peak, won’t be till next month but we may even camp.

Trail is clear and wide at the beginning. Nice hike and no snow.

Written from inside the cave.

Up here in the wind caves, if you sit inside, it's like you’re sitting in a big ear. You sit and listen with more power than normal human hearing because the rock interior gathers a large quantity of sound and funnels it down toward you.You hear the hum of the valley. Mostly the hum of humans. An airplane up overhead, a semi truck on the highway far below. But overall the sound that you hear is the wind... and the water; the forces that created these strange rock formations and this valley. You’re reminded that while humans are a force, nature is a much more powerful force. Out here you feel like just another living thing among the living things. You feel small.Your wants and worries feel insignificant. All you need is food, water, and shelter. You don’t hear people clamoring for an iPhone X or a new pair of Jordans. You don’t hear people moving to an affluent neighborhood or networking. You don't hear the "ding!" of a notification on your phone. You don’t hear people stunting on one another. A mountain lion could remove you from this life in the next twenty minutes. You’re listening for his silent footsteps through the brush. There isn’t time to dwell on much of anything. There’s only time to feel the rawness and realness of being just a human.

What a great hike! Beautiful scenery all around.

Good hike, but not really too pretty. I’m sure in the fall it would be more beautiful.

Good leg burner to start the Spring with.

My husband and I hiked this trail on March 24. It's pretty steep the first mile or so, then levels off. There's a stream that accompanies the trail for the first quarter mile or so..... it was super pretty surrounded by the green moss this time of year. It was lightly raining when we started, and some type of precipitation remained on and off for the rest of the hike. The ground also had variability... we encountered mud, snow, and ice. It was never so bad that we needed to put on our spikes, but we were glad we had them just in case.

Due to the weather, we were almost totally alone on the trail. Although it wasn't the "ideal" hiking day, we still enjoyed this hike!

Awesome !! ❤️❤️

Did this just this past Saturday. Went past the 1.4 mike make by about half a mile. I’d really like to do the full Battle Creek Grove Creek loop soon.

wide range of things to see. so much fun and by far one of my favorite hikes I've done. I did the glacier and back down the other side so it was a bit longer but absolutely incredible.

This falls is a great family hike, and the kids love to stand under the 50 foot falls and get wet. It is also a favorite for those learning how to rappel. There is often people at the top repelling down the side of the waterfall. To get to the falls, you take the Pleasant Grove Utah exit 275. Turn east, and follow the road up to 100 E in Pleasant Grove. Turn right to 200 S, then turn left (east). Follow the road all the way to the top where there is a parking lot, and the trail head. The hike starts kinda dry and hot, but it as soon as you get up to where the water is not piped in, it gets greener and cooler. It is only about 1 mile up to the falls, and there is is cool and a delightful area to explore. If you have more time, you can hike past the falls, and right off the bat you will see 2 more pretty waterfalls. The hike above is steeper but if you go up about another mile there is a spot where the river gets wide, Rocky and very shallow. There is a sign here and there is a trail that heads over to Dry Creek Canyon. If you go from here up about another half mile it gets a little steeper and narrow, but you end up coming to a T in the trail. The right side heads to Baldy or connects also with Dry Canyon. The left side gets up to a dirt road that you can drive all the way out to American Fork Canyon. I usually walk the road for just a little while and then head off on a small trail through the meadow that heads down Grove Creek Canyon, and right by Indian Springs. This canyon was named because a tribe of Indians used to live up in this meadow. Some squirmish happened with the Indians and the Pioneer settlers and there really was a battle between the two that happened at the base of Battle Creek Canyons. A beautiful canyon with spectacular cliffs, beautiful waterfalls, and a bonus that you are very close to the river almost the whole hike. Here is a 360 stitch of the hike up until the turn off towards Dry Canyon. http://shaunasadventures.blogspot.com/2018/02/360-adventure-battle-creek-canyon.html?m=1

Hiked this on the morning of March 3 after a decent snow shower the night before. My husband and I had microspikes but you could probably make it up with just decent hiking shoes. The sky threatened more snow, but the dry weather held out.

Catching up on some reviews, so note that I did this in early September. I know many people start around 2am to get to the summit at sunrise, but I just wasn't done for that this go around. Started the trail around 7am and got back to the car around 2pm. Lots of people going both directions. The log at the top was already filled with 200 names, just from that day!! Saw a mother moose and her two babies, as well as a mountain goat. Beautifil wildflowers filled the fields. Great time with some good friends--would definitely recommend doing this one.

Fun, easy, and scenic! A must for families. The waterfall is beautiful and weather was great! Didn’t go past the falls but was fun. Did a Vlog of it on you tube if you want to see it. “Daydreamer” is the channel “Hiking to Battle Creek falls” is the title.

The terrain on this hike was so interesting. The limestone made interesting landforms. There were also some springs coming out of the mountain.

Camping under mount Magog in the wildflowers was awesome! The lake is pretty neat and we saw some deer at dusk. Lots of good campsites, had no trouble finding one in July.

I loved this trail up to the saddle. I must have done it on the busiest weekend of the year so it was a little treacherous actually summiting due to mostly a lot of boys jostling, and the summit itself was very chaotic with lots of people on it. But the part up to that was pretty mellow and had such spectacular views of the wasatch and was lush with flowers. When I do this again, I’ll just go up the the big meadow on the timpooneke side or the emerald lake, once on the summit was enough for me.

First hike in the Logan area, nice and easy one to start off with. Includes lots of great views and we even enjoyed a little picnic on the rocks next to the tranquil river. The view at the top is very beautiful 360 degrees around.

Very pretty! This hike will get you breathing, but it’s not hard. Mostly dry, but there was a bit of mud towards the top. The cave itself kind of freaked me out with how slanted it was.

My Strava recording said it was 4.0 miles, 1204 elevation and it took 1 hour 23 mins.

We hiked this trail the other day. It was beautiful, especially in this unusually warm weather we’ve been having. Very little mud. Definitely worth it. We took our roommates’ pup and he had a blast!

It’s a good hike to go on with friends and family!

I hike this every summer. Top 10 most scenic trails in Utah.

Very pretty cave. Somewhat steep but not hard.

Nice up and back, a little bit of a challenge around the falls and above. The trail is clear of snow and ice. Nice scenery with a the pleasant sound of the flowing creek.

Not too difficult, I’d say it’s somewhere between easy and moderate if you’re in decent shape. Much more pleasant in winter vs scorching summer heat. The trail is muddy right now but I was just fine in my hiking boots! Nice short jaunt with awesome views of the Canyon!

I liked the hike and the views... the "lunch cave" was warm and had a great view. The trail was busy and full of mud, slush, packed ice and snow. I'm way out of shape and it took me longer than most up and down but I enjoyed it. Thought it was only 3.5 miles round trip... I was fooled! I seemed to be the only one falling. I'd still do it again only in dryer conditions... or more frozen.

The first 1/2 to 3/4 mile of the trail, beginning on the west side, was very muddy. It made the trail slippery. After that, the trail was packed snow and very beautiful. Highly recommend micro spikes.

Love this hike and the changes in terrain. Love the bench that is right before the main waterfall.

While the elevation is a lot, the grade I felt wasn't as steep as some of the trails we have done near Salt Lake City. It seemed to be more gradual... I enjoyed this hike and would do it again! We went on a Saturday afternoon, Jan 13.. temperatures were in the 40s... the trail was moderately crowded.. we saw about 6 other parties going up and down. The trail was muddy, slushy, icy and slippery in places, so our microspikes did come in handy! We heard there are often rattlesnakes spotted on this trail, though we did not see any. I don't know if they tend to come out more in the summer....

Note: our stats were 4.4 miles, 1,280 ft elevation. This is in comparison to the alltrails stats of 3.5 miles, 1,000 ft elevation.
