Very nice hike. The views are incredible. And to have the stream right along the trail was awesome! Will definitely do this hike again

good short hike and very nice falls.

did this hike today. very steep in places very beautiful wooded hike with the sound of the river always near and the falls at the end was amazing. well worth the hike.

First part of trail .5 miles is all sun and you feel like your in the desert. Then it turns along the river and all shade. Nice to follow river up to waterfalls. Waterfall is nice and you can splash around before heading down.

Oldie but goodie. Not too difficult for the most part. The last half mile or so may be a little challenging for kids.

This is my son's favorite trail. We have to do it every year. I have to admit with the heat I was not looking forward to it. Leaving later in the day was really pretty nice. The creek kept the heat down and the traffic was not too bad. Watched a great sunset on the way down.

Short. Easy with kids. Beautiful.

This a beautiful hike but I am 60 and in pretty good condition and I would call this hike hard. There were lots of young people but not a lot of older adults (senior). As you get to the top you are climbing through the rocks at a fairly steep incline. That being said the payoff at the end, the falls, are amazing. It was worth the climb definitely.

Beautiful

Great hike, shady most of the way. Really fun waterfall at the end that makes it all worth it!

It is a great trail

I live in the last house before the trail and let me tell you, we love that hikers use it! Some neighbors down the street are real strict about parking and we have been fighting to prevent a gate at the bottom of the street. there are lots of wasps on the trail (especially by the 2 water spots near the beginning of the hike) and occasionally a snake in the bushes. i take my small dog up there nearly every day and would say the bees are the only pests. It has some steep parts near the top with loose rock so be careful and go straight then right to see the waterfall when you reach the rock slide. Please pick up after your dogs and throw it in the bucket at the bottom of the trail and don't be shy, say hi if we're outside!

I absolutely love this trail! It is a beautiful scenic hike with some challenging parts. The switchbacks are rough in the beginning since it is a steep incline. After that, make sure to go right when the trail splits, and then stick left close to the mountain all the way up to the waterfalls. There is a small waterfall before the large one. It is only about an extra ten minutes to the large waterfall once you hit the small waterfall. There are steep parts on the trail and toward the waterfall, I was almost rock climbing. The hike was challenging but very fun! There is always a place to stop and rest, too. I love hiking up along the side of the stream. Getting to the final waterfall was definitely worth it!

!!GETTING TO THE TRAILHEAD!!
you'll have to park on the east side of Wasatch Blvd. Then walk up canyon cove road, take your first left, then your first right up wind canyon rd, I believe. THEN you get to the teailhead. enjoy!

Great burner trail run when you’re short on time. Be on the lookout for rattlesnakes tho, one at the top today right before the waterfall.

Fun hike! We went mid-day and we're grateful to have some occasional shade. I would recommend doing this hike in the morning when it is not as hot. The waterfall is definitely worth it when you get there!

love this trail. tried it as a beginner and made it to the top. now I come a few times a year. my kids love splashing in the water up at the waterfall

This trail is rated moderate but there are parts that are hard! The switchbacks at the beginning of the trail are tough because it is a steady incline and sandy. Once you get closer to the waterfall, there are some very steep parts that are borderline rock climbing/bouldering. With that being said, it was a fun and challenging trail.

Definitely a steady climb. I always thought there was just one water fall because I always stopped down at the base and hung out then went back down. Today I kept going up past the waterfall and discovered more falls. The trail does continue to climb. we stopped at the area where it forks off to either Curly Springs or Dry Creek. The sign said only 1.3 miles from the Kiwanis park (where the parking lot was) felt like we went further. The hike was gorgeous and past the falls there was an occasional person or people hiking but for the majority of the time we were alone.

Did this on 25Jul18. (5th time I've done this) Waited out a thunderstorm and the trail had puddles in some spots. A portion of the trail close to the falls was washed out and there are a couple of rocks to hop on in the river, to get across. Also falls were fuller than I've ever seen them. Roaring, really. Amazing as always hike.

Incredible views! Stunning evening hike, beautiful all around, with the perfect amount of challenge!

good first hike solo

I was planning on mountain biking the Pipeline Trail because I read that it was a good beginner trail and I hadn't been on my bike in a few years. What the site I read didn't tell me was that I had to ride UP Rattlesnake Gulch to get to Pipeline. I moved here a few months ago from Houston which is virtually sea level and needless to say, that combined with not having been on my bike for a few years, I was totally UNABLE to ride my bike up Rattlesnake Gulch. I ended up walking my bike up almost a mile and when I saw a very narrow part of the trail that had a rock wall on one side and steep drop on the other, I decided as accident prone as I sometimes am that it would not be safe for me to walk my bike on that portion of trail, so I turned around and walked my bike almost all the way downhill because of the loose rocks......I rode it down the last hundred or so feet when the trail was more packed dirt.

As a hike only, it would probably have been okay if I hadn't had to push a bike up it, but as a biker, you definitely need to be in better shape than I am to ride up this trail. Maybe next year, I'll be better able to conquer this one!

On the plus side, it was partially shaded on the way up but not too many places to stop and rest if needed.

gorgeous waterfall that pays off for the steep hike.

Nice trail but really confusing as to which way to go. We took our kids up (3 & 1) and it wasn’t too bad. We only went up about .75 of a mile though because my toddler got too tired. Definitely not a hike for toddlers.

Worth it to make it to the top! I’m an “older” hiker so I had to rest quite a bit but there was always a beautiful spot to sit.
