Short and beautiful!

Great views, great hike

Great trail for the dog. Family (including 6 year old) enjoyed it too, but it was slightly difficult to navigate all the rocks while carrying my 8 month old in the baby carrier. Also, as others have mentioned, the trail down is very poorly marked so we got lost for a few minutes. Overall we enjoyed it and felt like it was good exercise for a family outing.

Beautiful scenery, but a rocky and wash-y trail.

Great hike! Just hard enough so my dog could get a good workout along with me! The views are amazing :) beautiful with the fall leaves and not incredibly busy.

Easy walk to view the falls.

My friend and I hiked this trail after work. It was muddy and I slipped twice, but that was my fault. It was cold and snowy but it’s a beautiful trail and a beautiful lookout.

Very pretty during the fall with some great views. The trail gets a little rocky and loose but overall it was fun and short.

I would mirror Julie Kirby’s comments. Great trail for running, beautiful, but way too many people. Also way too much dog crap on the trail.

Fun, uncrowned trail. Lots of sunshine- very exposed, but always breezy to windy. Pretty views. Lots of rock, so watch your footing and make sure you have the right shoes.

This was a fun, short hike. We walked from Nunns Park up to the trailhead and then hiked to the falls. very beautiful waterfall and a close hike to get away from the city life! To get up close to the falls there is a bit of a scramble but the rest of the hike is fine. Steep, but short and doable for all.

One of my new favorites!! Fun fun fun. . With great views and smells from the fresh air infused with the creek and the fall colors! Get your blood pumping .

I love the view from top, totally worth the steep parts. Don’t forget your head lamp, or flash light if waiting for sunset.

Love this hike! And so close to downtown Salt Lake City! Very moderate on hills and a beautiful view. I’ve done it a few times and would do it again!

Nice hike, a little tricky without good shoes due to loose shale.

This was an amazing hike. My 4 & 6 year old even hiked straight up the waterfall to the pool where the main fall lands. Incredible views, very fun, and did this while holding my 2 year old in an ergo. *I wouldn't recommend everyone attempt that, but I feel pretty confident in my hiking abilities.

My brother-in-law did the same with his and there 3 & 5 year old did great too.

This trail is great for trail running. My only complaint is its popularity. Too many people. It thinned out after the first 2 miles. I clocked this at 7 miles to elephant rock and back.

pretty challenging, but accessible trail. Beautiful on the way up, even more so at the top. as far as wildlife, got to see a tarantula on the way down.

Perfect time of year. Perfect trail to start trail running or get back into trail running.

Love this hike! And the mountain bikers are very courteous of the hikers. Beautiful.

one of my first hikes in Salt Lake City, Utah. There is no shade as such along the entire hike trail. But the view at the top of the trek is really breathtaking. Moderate level of difficulty and can be hiked with pets.

Nice little hike.

A good challenge if you aren’t a regular hiker, kids were hiking it too! View at the top is worth it

Great views and fun setup at the top with rock couches/chairs. The hike itself is pretty steep and not super scenic, but if you’re going for the experience at the top, it’s solid.

Fun hike for the family, including 2 young kids and 2 small dogs.

easiest 6 miles of my life. well established trail. some bikers but everyone is pretty cautious of hikers! beautiful views all the way up!

The pave path most of the way makes this a much less strenuous hike until you get to the trail. There are many rough trails up marked by trail signs. I took the most eastern (up canyon) trail near the picnic table. It seems to be the best trail from what I saw

THERE IS POISON IVY EVERYWHERE! I'm surprised no one has mentioned this, especially in a hike rated only "moderate" and OK for at least older kids. We are experienced hikers, so I'm not giving it the half-hearted rating lightly. Also, I realize going in mid-September gave the trail a chance to really dry out and the poison ivy time to grow into large stands, but really, this warrants a mention. The trail to the bridge is decent with a lot of the elevation gained and then lost before you get to the red Bridge. After that, a lot of it is extremely narrow and steep (like a few degrees away from needing technical climbing gear. It gets very bad as you approach the second waterfall (which is not as picturesque in September as it probably was earlier in the year). Also, are the petroglyph closer to the upper waterfall than the map suggests? We got to the upper waterfall without seeing them, although it's only there that you see a rock face of the sort that you get petroglyphs on. At that point, though, the trail was so narrow and difficult to negotiate, we weren't looking up too much because a fall or slide would have landed us in a lush stand of poison ivy. At least on Bonneville Shoreline someone marks it. Our beef is less with the trail than with the really less-than-adequate description here.

Loved this trail it was so beautiful ♥️♥️

First time in SLC and took this trail. Quick hike and breathtaking views of the valley. Highly recommend it.
