This is a dog park—there are dog feces everywhere, dogs are off leash and the trail smells like urine. We were visiting from out of town and we were unfortunate enough to stop here to stretch our legs. There is an electric transformer station in the middle of the park and you can see and hear the highway throughout the trail.

Went there in January, without snowshoes we lasted about a mile. It was serene, looked like some folks went before us so we just followed their path until we couldn’t walk anymore without falling thigh deep into the snow. Would go again but with snowshoes.

I gave this four stars because I am sure this is a remarkable trail… but my personal experience, it should’ve been a zero. But it’s not a trail fault, I picked the worst day to do this trail. When I got to the peak, there was zero visibility to the city below. Also, there was a lot of ice on the ground and it was very difficult to walk up. I knew I should’ve waited for a clear day, but I only had a couple of hours free in order to make this hike happen at all. I will see if I can get time to do this trail one more time, but I doubt it. Anyway, I’m sure this trail is beautiful in the summertime.

My third time going. It was muddy and icy, but overall very nice.

went yesterday. this is right off the road, just a few steps up the gully. it's mostly frozen over. so glad I had my spikes on. the trail right now goes right up on top of the frozen creek, so be careful on the ice. very pretty! cant wait to go back in the spring!

Be sure to have proper gear if going when the trail is icy!

Pretty waterfall. Super short hike. It took me longer to cross the road at the S curve than actually hike to the falls. I went left after crossing the road and starting into the trail. I followed the footprints in the snow, and they crossed the river to the left hand side , but you can't get too close on that side, and then they went back and crossed to the right hand side and got really close to the falls. It was a little stressful crossing the snow covered stream and hoping the ice is solid underneath, but I kept using my sticks to make sure it was solid and it was pretty hard. I did a 360 degree StreetView trail here, if you want to view it, it is on Google Earth, and my blog https://www.shaunasadventures.com/2019/01/360-adventure-hidden-falls-and-mill-b.html?m=1.
It was nice to pair it with walking up Mill B trail to the picnic area for the river is so pretty and it is right there.
I have to add that even though this was a nice hike, they don't plow the parking lots so parking is stressful along the road. Also, I had to drive about 10-15 minutes up the road to finally find a safe place to turn around when I wanted to go home. I saw people stuck trying to turn around in not safe spots, and I felt so bad for them, but I was terrified of helping and getting stuck myself. Just FYI.

This is a great little walk. The falls are easy to get to and it is a beautiful area. It is great in the summer and amazing in the winter.

Easy for families, even those with young kids.

very fun short hiking! the top part is really really muddy, but super fun too!

easily accessible trailhead.the trails are marked and well maintained there was mud and a trace of snow towards the top.

Fun little trail with impressive views of the valley.

Great historic hike as well ...

Lots of mud this time of year ...

There is a boot scraper, but bring plastic bags ...

I went up here with my family this summer. Only a 2-minute walk to a pretty cool waterfall. Super quick and easy, but super fun too!

Couldn't figure out where this looped around and seemed to share a trail with the full pipeline trail? Liked the area but wasn't sure if I was in the right spot. People were friendly and happy to great my dog with pets. Just be wary if you truely need a begginner level trail, the one I took goes up and doesn't level off.

Easy, short, loop with plenty of brush and trees for the dogs to sniff. Very busy so the pups will have plenty of friends to play with. Dog waste stations throughout.

Nice trail. FOUND SOME KEYS WITH ORANGE CARABINER; TOYOTA KEY PLUS OTHER KEYS...will turn them into police.

We hiked this trail on September 5th and it was a beautiful fall hike. The trail was mostly dirt and it varied between loose and hard packed on the hike up. The lake was very pretty and we saw a mother moose with two calves drinking from the lake. While the trail doesn't have an official end to it, the views on the way up were amazing and I look forward to hiking this trail again.

It’s a relatively easy hike and very well-marked. It’s a beautiful view of the valley if the sky is clear. If it’s hazy or smoky, you can’t see much!

Nice short trail with an amazing view of SLC at the peek.

It is short but pretty steep almost the entire time. But worth it if you take it slow it’s a great hike for anyone. At the top you see the entire valley so very worth it

Worth it for the view, short, and nice

Worth doing once for the view of the city. Easy to follow. Well maintained.

Great jog.

Easy nice morning climb to watch sun rise.

Short but falls were hidden so couldn’t view.

Definitely a favorite for my pup. She loves to swim at the pond/lake area at the end. One of my favorite places to explore!

Great for a short hike, not so much for mountain biking. This app says it's mountain bike friendly but there's actually a sign that says bikes prohibited. That may just be in the first overlook area at the bottom, but bikes aren't a great idea for this trail anyway because it's so frequently trafficked and steep. I had to walk my bike up most of the way (lifted it over the bigger rocks at the top) and of course heavily breaked nonstop on the way down. I adore the view at the top tho! Especially in the morning! The sun rises over the east mountain range the sunlight filtered beautifully through the autumn colored trees on the mountain.
