Easy to moderate hike- it’s one of my favorites. It gives you a little work out, and you can enjoy the beautiful views of the superstitions on the steady incline up, and the valley on the way down. This hike I can do in just under an hour. Definitely recommend checking out.

Good little hike with a waterfall at the end - entrance fees waived by a National Parks pass.

Not my favorite hike, but it’s nice. It’s a pretty busy trail but the waterfall at the end is fun.

Great trail...not marked well in the very beginning, but after the first 1/3 mile or so, it’s a clear trail. We saw THREE separate rattlesnakes on the trail on our hike, so be careful. Also saw a large tortoise and horny toad. No shade on trail. Beautiful view at the top. Definitely do this in the early morning to beat the heat. A few steep rocks to climb, but not too difficult. Completed this with a group of about 25, including teens and adults.

Great hike. We are beginners and couldn’t make it all the way to the top...elevation was the challenge for us. Great views and we will be back to try again when cooler!

Great Morning Birthday Hike on 9-7-2018 with my friend Enas! One of my favorites! Helped out a fellow female hiker with a bottle of water and some snacks. Safety First Peeps!!!

Trails were a little rocky not the best for any sort of running shoes. Good views. $7.00 fee to enter park.

9.3.18 - this is a pretty easy trail. I started it at 8:15am and the lots and side of the road were so full. but the time I came back down it was a circus on the trail. there were so many people it was like bestbuy and Walmart on black Friday. lots of crying kinds and college kids blasting the music. I'd say do this trail during the week, very early in the morning. you'll enjoy it so much better.

Good hike pleasant view at the finish. Not unusual to see a snake.

Fun hike, but a little misleading for first-timers. The falls—which are awesome—are within the first half-mile of the hike. On a holiday (like today—Labor Day), that section of the hike is very busy. From there, the trail along the stream is very narrow in parts, with treacherous, loose gravel drop offs. If you have little ones like us, you’ll want to keep a hand on them.
After the first mile, which is quite steep to boot, the trail evens out and is quite lovely. We didn’t quite make it to the end, but came within spitting distance—we clocked exactly 4 miles total. Plan on around three hours if you’re going to go the distance.

Great hike for children. Bring or wear Chacos, Keens, or other water shoes.

Fun, short hike! Parking lot fills up quick, and it costs 6$ to get in. Fun for families, pets, as a date, etc

A beautiful hike! Definitely go early because we got there @8 and as we were getting back to the car @10:30 tons of people hiking up. Next time we would go an hour earlier but 8 wasn’t that bad

This is my favorite hike in Utah county! It would be nice if the trailhead was marked so you know you're on the right path...I was confused for a bit before I figured out which trail to take.

Great hike!! Went up early in the morning to avoid people and I was glad I did!! By the time I got to the waterfall, and hung out for 15 mins, the people started rolling in. I had very quiet hike to the fall, but going back was getting crowded. The pup and I will for sure be going back.

What a great trail!! My pup and I went early on in the morning (around 7:45am) on a Sunday and only saw 3 other people. It was cool weather which was nice. The hike was great. A little steeper than I thought, but managed to do it just fine (gave my thighs a little burn) and my dog did it easily. The first waterfall is the tallest one (and where most people stopped and turned around). If you keep going there are a few smaller waterfalls and just amazing scenery in general. I followed the All Trails outline of the trail and it lead to a beautiful open meadow area. The trail goes on, but we decided to go back to the truck and it turned out to be a total of 4.5 miles round trip. I am happy I went earlier as when I was heading down, towards the waterfalls were the families and such. I prefer to just hike with the pup and myself so we try to do all of our hikes early on, plus the weather is nicer. Like I said earlier, it is a little steep and it's a lot of loose rocks (be careful if you aren't sure footed or have kids as it is a little narrow). I can't wait to do this hike again.

My husband and my first ever hike. Beautiful and easy morning. Parts were crowded but likely had to do with being Saturday of Labor Day weekend. Will definitely be something we do again.

My first hike ..had an amazing guide and a great time had ..

Hiked this 3 days ago on Friday. A good quick hike to a beautiful waterfall! A great morning hike to get acclimated to the area. Hiked Timpanogos the next day.

Me and 2 friends hiked this route on an overcast day a morning after a monsoon hit. Weather was perfect going in. Got hot as the sun came out on our hike back. Wouldn't recommend doing this hike in the middle of the day due to no shade along the trail. I gave it 4 stars because it was a beautiful hike for seeing desert after rain and for the beautiful views.

The waterfall at the end was a drip coming down. Disappointed it wasn't flowing.

I am out of shape and I considered the beginning of this hike easy, then it does become moderate the closer you get to the waterfall (or lack thereof).

Easy to moderate trail. Girlfriend and I had no issues getting up or down. Virtually no shade until you get close to the mountain. Trail is well maintained and path easily identified. Up and down in a little less than two hours.

I really liked this hike. Not strenuous yet still got a good workout in. The views of all the different species of cacti were awesome. Went around 730ish and the mountain kept the sun behind it so it was shaded and breezy the entire way up! Very nice to have cool air hitting you on a trail especially in AZ! Trail is pretty well marked and is fun to follow. Kicked a stray cactus into my leg so be careful of anything laying on the ground ha!

Felt longer than it was, a little challenging but definitely doable for even my 3 year old who is a champ! Bringing enough water is key, really for all hikes but this one for sure. View from the top made it all worth it and looking back at the accomplishment once we were back down is uplifting :)

Nice walk/hike at base of Superstition Mountains.

Did this a few weeks ago with my three kids(10,7,3). It was an easy hike to the lower(big) Falls. We played in the water and stood under the waterfall. Be careful and make sure no one is up on top of the waterfall causing rocks to fall.
