01 19 19 tried hiking this trailer based on the most reset reviews. absolutely CANT MAKE IT WITHOUT SNOWSHOES. kept sinking to my waste each time I tried to get up. will try again next week with snowshoes.

Great for puppers and not bad in the winter

Great hike. I did a Google Earth Trail on Saturday here. You can do a virtual like walk of the trail and into the cave at www.shaunasadventures.com or on Google Earth. We had on spikes/ Crampons and made it to the cave fine. Headed up a little before 9, and there was not too many crowds, but as we headed down there was a huge group heading up. Most people heading up had sleds. I wish I would have asked them where they were heading to sled. I am thinking they were going to take the V shaped trail marked on my blog to the North Fork road and then sled down it. Definitely would have been fun sled ride down.

easy hike, good views. Dont try and get a picture by the falls unless you want to walk back with freezing feet. Ha!

Beautiful, easy hike. Cool ice cave. Hiked today (mid-January) with hiking/snow boots and we were just fine.

Best view of SLC I’ve seen.

great hike! we didn't go up the last portion but it was so much fun anyway. snow was packed in but we had spikes and poles. definately need to go back and go up to the cave!

I hiked this yesterday with a friend. It wasn’t too crowded and the snow was packed down so hiking boots were fine. We didn’t do the very last part to the actual falls because it was too steep and slippery. Other people were doing it though.

Great for dogs, great for views.

Gorgeous views. Loose gravel near the trailhead, two areas where the path (briefly and slightly) narrows closer to the top. We were happy to have Yaktrax and trekking poles.

Amazing short little hike. It has hard snow pack so no snow shoes necessary. The view at the falls is amazing. Truly a great one for the whole family. And the reward is well worth the work.

Great hike, breathtaking views

You need micro spikes as the trail was completely snow covered. I don’t think the view is as good, as the hike up the pipeline trail to the salt lake over look, but it’s still pretty

Microspikes are your friend for this trail.

Lovely winter hike. The road and trail were sufficiently packed that snowshoes were not necessary, although they may help some folks. No waterfall visible during the winter, but it was still worth it for a beautiful woodland walk.

Beautiful hike in the snow at night with headlamps. Only needed microspikes as the snow was packed down on the trail, despite deep snow on the sides of the trail.

If you’re looking for an easy paved and cut out trail this is for you. You’ll be directed to the waterfall with ease. Now, if you want to go to see the donut shaped rock where the waterfall has cut through, you’ll need to do some climbing. My group scaled the waterfall. Shoes and pants were wet, but to us, it was worth it to feel the icy water and take pictures at the top. We typically do difficult hikes, so adding this climbing factor make it more interesting and worthwhile.

Good trail, the hike up to the trailhead was the biggest workout for me but the scenery was nice and it wasn’t too long

Nice and easy hike with some loose gravel on the way up, the view at the end is pretty awesome if it’s not too crowded.

The trail is good now. No snow shoes needed.

Great trail. First time doing this one and the view from the top is gorgeous. No need for snowshoes or spikes on this day. Trails are a little narrow with some steep drop offs on some parts. Views on the trail are gorgeous too.

Went on 08Dec18. A couple of areas where spikes are useful, not bad at all for this time of year.

Great trail. It's well-worn in the snow and you should only need microspikes unless you're going up right after a storm. Wonderful views of the canyon and valley all in one hike.

This trail was SO beautiful today! The snow was perfect on the trees and mountains and good to walk through. Lots of people snow shoeing and with touring skis. I had hike spikes and poles and that worked great. The falls at the end was amazing and so worth traversing up the rocks at the top to get inside the little cave. The road to the trailhead is closed due to snow but it doesn’t make it that much longer.

Well marked hiking area. Falls are about 2 miles in on the left of the trail. You have to scramble a bit to the upper fall and pools. The remainder of the route just goes to the opposite trail head. As others have said the falls are nothing spectacular, but the hike is easy and there are lots of routes to explore.

Fun little climb !

I followed the tracks of another kind soul who did the majority of the post-holing up to the summit.

Great views of Kesler to the South.

:-)

I brought our family from Virginia, an 18,16,and 13 year old and my own kids 11,9,7,and 5 year old. Good snow, icy at the top. Beautiful at the top, good for all ages.

Nice short hike, a bit washed out with some loose rock areas. Views are well worth it!

Great hike for all experience levels. When I went, there were plenty of families with kids, trail runners, and pups on the trail. There was no snow or frost when I went.
