Good hike with lots of shade. Unfortunately, there are no signs so we ended up on Indian trail. We backtracked and finally took the saw mill route. Had to bushwhacked but did not make it to the end - it got very muddy and we saw fresh moose tracks. Ended up hiking 5.2 miles round trip.

Had a great hike. Gets a little step and rocky before the waterfall. It's quite refreshing once you get there. My 6 year old was able to make it.

Beautiful trail!!

One of my favorites.

First part of trail .5 miles is all sun and you feel like your in the desert. Then it turns along the river and all shade. Nice to follow river up to waterfalls. Waterfall is nice and you can splash around before heading down.

I did this hike yesterday around 1030am. The waterfall was pretty but I probably won’t do the hike again. For about 2/3 of the hike it’s pretty steep. There also aren’t many views or pretty things to look at along the way. Plus the creek along the trail had an unpleasant smell.

Oldie but goodie. Not too difficult for the most part. The last half mile or so may be a little challenging for kids.

Waterfall more of a trickle late summer. Great for a morning trail run.

This is my son's favorite trail. We have to do it every year. I have to admit with the heat I was not looking forward to it. Leaving later in the day was really pretty nice. The creek kept the heat down and the traffic was not too bad. Watched a great sunset on the way down.

Nice hike, very rocky with few flat spots. Waterfall barely a trickle in mid-August. Still nice views of the town.

This a beautiful hike but I am 60 and in pretty good condition and I would call this hike hard. There were lots of young people but not a lot of older adults (senior). As you get to the top you are climbing through the rocks at a fairly steep incline. That being said the payoff at the end, the falls, are amazing. It was worth the climb definitely.

Beautiful

Great hike, shady most of the way. Really fun waterfall at the end that makes it all worth it!

This hike starts off next the river but looses it about 1.5 miles and it gets hot! We started in the morning but by afternoon there wasn't a lot of shade. I was confused by the trail markers, I was looking for wheeler trail but in the middle of the hike all you see are signs for Maple or icebox. I just kept going south in hopes of going the right way. We didn't make it to the end because we ran out of time, maybe someday in the fall.

Spiders! This hike may be wonderful any other time of year, but please note that right now this area is infested with millions of spiders. There are several news articles about it. We got 5 mins into this hike first thing after sunrise and brushed away a few cobwebs thinking nothing of it. We came to a pass where we couldn’t get through the trail without facing several webs with three large spiders and turned around only to realize we’d been surround by webs all over the trail. Even driving off to leave the island we could see these webs and large spiders from the road. If they are your thing and don’t bother you, it’s a gem. If you prefer to avoid spiders, definitely not your hike right now.

I absolutely love this trail! It is a beautiful scenic hike with some challenging parts. The switchbacks are rough in the beginning since it is a steep incline. After that, make sure to go right when the trail splits, and then stick left close to the mountain all the way up to the waterfalls. There is a small waterfall before the large one. It is only about an extra ten minutes to the large waterfall once you hit the small waterfall. There are steep parts on the trail and toward the waterfall, I was almost rock climbing. The hike was challenging but very fun! There is always a place to stop and rest, too. I love hiking up along the side of the stream. Getting to the final waterfall was definitely worth it!

Gets easier every time. Takes 25-35 minutes to get up. Wear decent shoes. Waterfall is more of a trickle currently. Sunsets are nice with the smoke in the air.

love this trail. tried it as a beginner and made it to the top. now I come a few times a year. my kids love splashing in the water up at the waterfall

This trail is awesome! I can't believe I've lived in Ogden most of my life and never tried it out before. We only hiked about 3 miles of it, but it was beautiful and mostly shaded. Very easy trail at the beginning, but I've heard it can get steeper and harder the further you go (will update when I have more info). This would be great as a beginner mountain bike trail. I plan to come back and try it out for that.

This trail is rated moderate but there are parts that are hard! The switchbacks at the beginning of the trail are tough because it is a steady incline and sandy. Once you get closer to the waterfall, there are some very steep parts that are borderline rock climbing/bouldering. With that being said, it was a fun and challenging trail.

Worth it to make it to the top! I’m an “older” hiker so I had to rest quite a bit but there was always a beautiful spot to sit.

Sunday was pretty crowded, not the trails fault but a group of people brought up their ganster rap, who wants that kind of music on a hike?! You hike to enjoy stillness.
maybe someone will read this and not be that person on a hike (:

Just finished this hikes. This hike is HARD!!! It is steep and insanely rocky. If you have knee problems, or are not in moderate shape, don't do this hike. There are pretty spots and views; this time of year the waterfall is nothing special.

Me and my wife finally made it to the top waterfall. The last few times we’ve tried she was 7 1/2 months prego and the next was with a 7 month old or so. We left the kids home this time and got to the top. Awesome hike. I just wish people would pick up dog poop!!!! If you have a dog pick up after it.....at least get the crap off the trail.

This is a great trail with a doable elevation gain. The destination was nothing amazing. The hike was 12 mi round trip (6 up and 6 down), not the 9.8 mi this app tells you. Bring plenty of water, 2+ liters. The descent was not good on my feet even though I had good hiking shoes. Got bloodied toenails. But overall, I would say it was a good hike!

Great hike but the lack of snow fall has made this waterfall a bit disappointing.

just visiting, small hike in the morning. it was some loose rock and not much waterfall but some good views and still had fun

Awesome
