Falls are only a bit more than a trickle this time of year. Steeper hike than you'd think

Loved the view of Pfeifferhorn , one lake was dry but still beautiful.

This was a good hike! Not too steep not too difficult! Gorgeous views and we saw a moose right next to the trail.

beautiful hike all the way through and the prize at the end the waterfall perfect.

I agree with Chris, this is more of a moderate trail. By the end my friend and I were very sore. The pain was well worth seeing the falls. Take lots of water!

great hike with great views!! made for a nice escape from the smokey valley too. there is one spot that was a bit sketchy, but our dog did it no problem. you basically climb up some trees roots hanging over the trail. the falls were so cold, so I don't recommend standing under them. ;) and the flowers were beautiful too!!! I'd definitely do this one again.

fun destination hike with a great payoff. falls were amazing. most of the trail is fairly ez, but there are a couple of steep sections.
took the whole family, my 9 year old struggled just a bit.
took 2 hours.
GPS had it at 4.3 miles.

Great trail. It's well covered and stays pretty cool. The slightly steeper parts are well staggered, good exercise but not too difficult. Very beautiful location.

Most of the 3 miles is on the paved Provo canyon trail so we just parked at the upper falls park and went from there.
There is a side trail that leads to 3 additional water falls if you're up for the adventure.

Beautiful! So so beautiful!!! But hard to find. Really should call it Hidden Falls. Wednesday I tried finding it but was confused by the map also I was thinking it was the upper part of Bridal Veil. Two different trails. So Saturday late afternoon/ early evening and after researching I was able to find the trail. Lot of people down where it is paved but very few on the trail. It is steep but doable even for a 5 year old. A lot of it is shaded. Once at the bottom of the Falls my daughters (17 and 5) and I decided to see if we could find the trail to take us up to the next part of the Falls. It was hard to find and it took my 17 climbing up part of the rock face to find the trail for us. The trail was narrow and if you are afraid of heights the bottom of the Falls is great. But the real treat is going higher. So so incredible!

This is my favorite hike of the season. I’ve done Cecret Lake, Big Baldy, Silver Lake and Battle Creek Falls. I’d give it a 5* if it wasn’t for the amateurs hiking on the trail. If you see a trail runner, move over and let them pass. Falls were refreshing and great to cool off under before I headed back down.

Beautiful hike! Everything was green and lush on the trail. Lots of people coming down from seeing the sunrise on Timp but the trail wasn't too crowded. When we got to the falls there was only one other small group there so we got some peace and quiet and cooled off next to the water. Our little dog loved it too! Good hike for families and people of all ages!

We loved this trail! I went with my brother and 6 month baby in a carrier. We tried it once in the heat of the day and couldn’t make it with my daughter but tried again in the morning and it was perfect for all of us. Make sure you to take the right at the first fork. There is a part where you have to climb up some tree roots but it was not too bad. There were several elderly people who were hiking it just fine. In total it was about 2-2.5 hours round trip. (With lots of time enjoying the falls.)

Great hike. A little steep at places.

This trail is marked “easy” but it is not!! It is definitely “moderate” and if you are an inexperienced hiker, possibly even “difficult “. There are rocks and tree roots to navigate especially along the last section leading to the falls. And it is a challenge for small children. Most kids under 7 that I saw on the trail were not happy. One 3 year old was afraid of how high up we were along part of the trail and cried for a good part of it

Now all that being said, it is a beautiful hike!! Lots of shade, wildflowers (even in dry July), scenic views across the mountains and the waterfall did not disappoint!! Just be prepared with water and snacks, especially if you have kids with you.

I completely agree that this hike should not be categorized as ‘easy’. However, it was well worth the hike. Beautiful falls.

My 8 year old son loved climbing through the waterfall to the upper falls. I thought this hike would be too crowded to be much fun, but it was actually pretty awesome despite all the people at the bottom.

Absolutely gorgeous. Should not be rated easy but it depends on which parts you hike.

Beautiful scenery.

Awesome hike. Had a great time. Pretty easy to hike.

Easy getting to the falls. A little more difficult if you climb up the face of the falls to where the water is coming off the mountain, but still doable. great adventure for kids!

This hike is very fun, but make sure you know the area or pay for the all trails app (not just use the free one) it is not a well marked path. The hike is very beautiful and the small lake is beautiful, especially with the little island in the middle.

Great family hike, even when it is hot.

many butterflies and photogenic areas.

grove like places along the trail to sit or even camp.

blatant sign before the hike starting no open fires allowed in the areas.

the springs have been capped for some time, but the caps make good tables.

other trails accessible from here.

AllTrails rates it as easy. I’d say more moderate between easy and intermediate at 3.9 miles with 650 feet altitude gain, lots of up and down, dusty portions with a couple of tricky rock fields. Mostly not too tough but not for young children (saw lots of parents carrying little ones) or older adults.

This is the most beautiful trail I've hiked so far this year. My first time and I was amazed at what surrounded me. It's an easy hike and a very lightly traveled trail compared to Red Pine or White Pine. The lakes aren't much to look at but there are awesome views with Pfeifferhorn as a backdrop.

This hike is actually 4 miles round trip. Had a blast going under the waterfall even though it was so cold it took my breath away. We hit the trail just before 8AM on Pioneer Day and it wasn't very busy and we arrived at the falls within an hour. By the time we decided to leave the falls it was a different story! The trail became very crowded with both people and dogs (mostly off leash). I would call this trail Moderate. There is quite a bit uphill. But it is doable. The waterfall is beautiful as well.

very rocky, fun hike, steeper than I expected

Not too bad for a first walk in UT.
Traveled the route and ended up a steep rocky area (too steep for me for as of now).
You can continue walking (paved path), it’s just surrounded by trees and a river on the right for maybe 3 more miles.

LOVE this hike. Great for kids. Awesome views. Short. One sketchy section for little ones but no big deal if you hold their hands.
