This is one of our favorites. Mosquitos are bad at the lake right now but manageable. Wildflowers are beautiful. An easy hike for me and my 5 year old to walk himself. Don't forget $6 if you want to park at Catherine's or cecret parking lots!

Wildflowers are amazing right now!

Great, easy trail and boardwalk around the lake. Surroundings were beautiful.

It was nice and short with some great views and pretty wild flowers, but there were a lot of people and mosquitos. My friend went on a week day and it was warmer, we went on a cooler day on the weekend. I recommend doing that if you want the place to your self and fewer bugs.

I've been hiking in Utah for as long as I can remember, and I don't think I've ever seen wildflowers like this. GO NOW WHILE THEY'RE STILL AT THEIR PEAK! We went in the evening (around 6:30), so it wasn't as crowded as during the day on a weekend, but still plenty of people.

Great little walking trail. It's flat -- my 4 y/o had no problems. Completely paved. Lots of bikes on this trail, too. The bike trail is longer and on the west side of the river.

Nice walk from the Visitor Center (trailhead) to the beautiful Huber Homestead and orchards. We had an 8, 7, and 3 year old hobbit with us and they did it just fine without too much grumbling.

fun easy hike with and it's fun to play in the water

We saw a rattlesnake on the horse trail about 200 yards south of the Orson Smith trailhead about 10 AM today.

It had about 6 rattles and slithered off into a small patch of scrub oak. It did rattle eventually inside the clump of brush but it wasn't coiled when we saw it.

I hike the trails in the area about once per week. This was the first rattler I've seen on the mountain.

I wouldn’t classify this as an easy trail, though it’s certainly doable for inexperienced hikers. Make sure to go in the morning. The lake draws a lot of swimmers.

LOVED this trail! Shade, off leash for dogs and a babbling creek the entire way for the kids and furry friends to play in. When we visit Utah again we will surely return!

Wonderful time! Get there early to avoid crowds and traffic! Looked like people camp there too.

The trail on its own is a great introduction for inexperienced hikers. My 5 year old son could accomplish the trail without needing any assistance or requiring a break. It has a few log bridges that cross the waterfall's stream that kids enjoy. The stream's size fluctuates depending on the run-off, but I have never seen it go above ankle deep.

This trail seems to attract a big crowd. plan accordingly around peak times or you maybe disappointed.

Fun walk up a downtown canyon. Did while visiting Salt Lake for meetings.

I did this loop earlier today...did a little geocaching and then because I am a glutton for punishment I hiked up to the lower falls. Both are good hikes....just different and the difficulty level is harder for the lower falls. This loop trail still gives you a workout because the first part of it is going uphill so ignore the difficulty level rated as easy and give it a try and if it's not enough then go up to the falls....I am sure that will be enough unless you are in incredible shape. have a good one all.

Good trail. the climb was too steep form me but I'm a beginner.

easy hike and super short with beautiful waterfall...

My favorite waterfall! very whimsical and peaceful. It is a short hike and great for yoga/meditation or pondering time. The waterfall is breathtaking tucked around Rocky mountain and forestry. I go here often to relax...

Beautiful and a simple short hike you can take your kids on...

All year round off leash dog trail. Super easy.

The easiest hike I’ve done it is short and so pretty with all the pine trees around. The water fall is small but a really nice place to go . I recommend it to go really early in the morning so you can enjoy the place to yourself.

This hike is full of wonder and beauty! The flowers through the Albion Basin are amazing. This hike is a steeper hike. You’re already up 10 thousand plus feet in altitude so the hike can be a bit of a challenge for a newbie but it is worth it if you are able to take it slower. One of my favorites! ❤️

Love this trail! Perfect for beginners! the lake is beautiful and you can continue on if you choose to other destinations from the lake. Tons of places to camp around the lake. Lots of trees perfect for hammocking too. We took our one year old and our friends brought their 18 month old. The kids loved it. Beware, TONS OF MOSQUITOS! Everything else was perfect!

Easy hike with beautiful scenery. Watch out fo dog poop and doggie bags all over. There was plenty of trash at the trailhead too. Please clean up after yourselves and your dogs.

Great hike! I had it all to myself..well except for the mosquitos. lol definately use bug spray! Butterflies were everywhere. Saw a buck. 1/3 of the trail is a bit claustrophobic because the vegetation is as tall as me and overgrowing the trail. The uphill portion got the heart pounding. I'm mid forties, out of shape and did fine.

Good for beginners just getting their legs

Fun hike for the family. The walk in has shade and the area near the falls is a great place to sit or walk in the water.

Beautiful weather. Beautiful trail. We enjoyed this hike with our kids. The rope swing into the lake was refreshing!
