Super easy, just chill and cool view at top.

Love this hike. It’s awesome. The water slide at the end is cool too. Not sure why it’s rated hard though. This is moderate. Don’t be intimidated. It’s pretty trafficked though for sure. One of the best endings though.

About 2 miles up when you approach the sign that points to the waterfall take a sharp left down onto the smaller trail. We thought it was telling us to go straight so we missed the turn off. Took a little over 2 hours round trip

Amazing views and the fall colors were breathtaking. We had an amazing day.

Meh, not so easy with 4 kids...

We went to perfect timing with fall leaves and weather. At the top (waterfall) , it can get cold so we were glad we had a good jacket (next time I will bring gloves for my kids hand). Good thing we had a friend who knew exactly where to find the location, it can get little tricky off HWY 89. We started to hike around 3:30pm and were able to catch the sunset by 7pm. It is dog friendly but little kids may need help to go all the way. Even if you don’t go all the way, it is fun to bring family there. I was told every season this hike is different. Probably not in mid summer where it can get really hot (unless hiking in the early morning). Can’t wait to return back again.

This trail is closed through October 2018. I made the trip up yesterday, along with quite a few other hikers, only to find out it is temporarily closed.

Beautiful Fall hike. Loved the parts along the creek.

Nice loop, hard at first due to the incline, but that does not last long. Well maintained trail and a cool bridge.

Although it’s a climb, the wide path and relatively even surface make this a pleasant walk.

Nice little hike.

Bring a change of socks if you don't want squish foot. This is worth the climb.

Wonderful hike. A little technical in some places.

amazing trail if you need something to kick your butt. the first little section is a bit awful just because of the dust and switchbacks but once you're past those, it's all beautiful and shady! dogs are free to roam off the leash and mine loves all the water along the way.

It was pretty. The hike was fairly easy until the last part where it’s rocky, steep switchbacks. I’m out of shape and kinda died a little. The lake was smaller than I imagined but it was so nice just chilling on the rocks catching my breath! The breeze was a definite plus!

Really pretty. Crowded on Sat at the falls but not the longer trail. $7 day pass required.

Nice loop hike with great views of the Salt Lake Valley

its uphill the whole way good times beautiful waterfall. beginners were at that are we there yet about 3/4 way. lolz. so worth it. well worn trail.

Love this one for a quick early morning or evening hike. Trail/road is nice enough to run on.

Loved this trail. Unfortunately it burned in sept of 2018. who knows when someone will go and replace all the wood bridges. Even if they did it will be a very sad sight for a while.

Lovely hike to a beautiful waterfall. i enjoyed hiking by the stream and seeing all the beautiful little cascades of water and mini waterfalls. We started early but I can imagine when it is hot the first part would be a beast! The information we read said dogs were welcome if on a leash...I saw lots of dogs and none of them were on a leash! The dog poop along the trail left by inconsiderate dog owners was a real distraction to this beautiful trail! Come on dog owners pick up after your dogs or don't use this trail!

great trail beautiful scenery got some really steep hills though.

Pretty beautiful; enjoyed it. Great hike for a date with someone who isn’t that outdoorsy.

This was a beautiful hike but you now have to pay 6 dollars to park at the base of the hike or walk 2.2 miles to get to the hike.

nice trail off the main trail leads you thru the back country to the fish hatchery,bring you some water and get a good hiking stick

Fun hike, the suspension bridge is really fun, it's a giant bridge that sways and bounces! Great views along the entire hike.

A nice add-on either to or from Rifle Falls. And, yes, there are actually lower and upper falls at the end of this hike. Interestingly, these falls are from the canal that starts at Rifle Falls.

Falls are beautiful. Arrived early on a Tuesday in September and had the trail to myself. Squirrel trail follows a canal along red and white geological wonders. While the trails aren’t epic, the falls are worth the trip.

This was a fun hike! Best to go in the morning or evening since there is not much shade. I was able to wear our 6 month old and our 3 and 6 year olds did well (with a little extra encouragement!). The bridge was really neat. Our older kids had fun climbing rocks on our way back down the trail.

Great hike to a beautiful waterfall.
