Hiked this trail in January and it was covered in snow. Amazing hike. We accidentally went up a side path and went the wrong way, which was easy enough to figure out when we saw some skiers coming down it. Stay to the left lol
This hike is super easy even in the snow. Had a blast and the little falls that’s at the end was worth the little hike there.

This trail has a lot of shade, and although it gains a lot of altitude, the switchbacks are long and fairly gentle. There are some parts where you have to scramble up rocks, and it is a narrow trail. We started at 10am on a Tuesday morning, and it wasn’t very crowded. It took us until 1:15pm to make it to the first view of the Valley. We stopped there because we were in a bit of a time crunch. We didn’t make it back down until 3pm! The person who mentioned making it up in 40 minutes deserves a slow clap. My middle two have autism and hike slowly and need lots of breaks. They loved the trail but did feel like it was quite long. In general kids aren’t super pumped about hiking to an overlook, but if you’re trying to decided between this hike and Rattlesnake Gulch up Millcreek Canyon, I’d say Rattlesnake is better—shorter and better view, though it does feel steeper. P.S. The leaves are changing like crazy, but it’s in a dry, crispy sort of way. Still pretty though.

Fantastic hike with one amazing falls after another.

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

Exquisite and idyllic!

Did this last night, took me 90 minutes car to car. No shade but I planned it for sunset so it was perfect. Sweet little intense hike very close to the city. Will do again. Don't stop till you get to the Buddha!

This was an easy hike with gorgeous waterfalls. It can get crowded, especially at the falls that are less than a mile from the trailhead, but the farther away from the trailhead I got the less people I saw.

This has become a regular hike. enjoy the view and quick access. also always friendly people on the trail.

I found it to to be a good amount of challenge with great views as the pay off. Took a little over 4 hours round trip but I have not done much hiking this year so I’m not in the best shape. We went at about 8:30 and the bugs were not bad at all. It’s really nice that there are places to sit and rest once you get to the falls. Great views of the city as well. My garmen showed about 5,5 miles to lower falls.

Great hike. Beautiful relaxing spot when you get to Lake Mary.

The trail leading up is extreme, it inclined so fast and steep. There is a lot of rocks and things you need to climb over. It’s beautiful, pace yourself and you should be good.

Good trail! You can either go for some time or a quick trail run!

Beautiful stop on the way to lake Catherine.

This hike never disappoints. Beautiful fall colors this time of year.

I like the trail, a little challenging but not too bad. The view is awesome, way better than I expected. Someone build a seat and a small table with rocks

Pretty steep until you get to the first lake, but it’s worth it!

Hiked this trail on Sunday 9/9/18. Started about 2:00 pm and went counter clockwise. Clocked over 9 miles and 1400 feet of elevation gain. The falls are amazing, though a few were dry. Not as many people in the afternoon and going that direction. Make sure you have your Trail app on because some of the trail has no signage. Very well maintained hike with a push toward the end up switchback stairs. Will be back in spring when the water is higher!

This hike is deceiving, if you want to see a waterfall you have to go up an extra .7 ass kicking climb beyond the 2.2 miles in the app description. The app map has you going all that way so there measurement of miles is incorrect. At 2.2 there was a nice stream but nothing I would call a waterfall, may just be time of year as the water levels are low. We were happy we did it, but may have thought twice if we had a correct map or started earlier.

The end was worth the hike! Not so scenic on the way but the top is worth it. Interesting surprise :)

beautiful and worth the effort. Last leg is an ass kicker very satisfying!

Challenging, short hike with nice views of SLC.

Checked this out after coming down from Mill B - pretty little area and glad we didn’t just head back to the car, but I would hardly call it it’s own hike.

The waterfall is beautiful and worth the trip.

This was a beautiful run to do, definitely stopped a few times to take in the sites, going counterclockwise around the loop, you get the gradual climb done first and then you have a gradual downhill and steep uphill to finish on.

beautiful hike, we ended up doing 10 miles by the time we got back to the car to make sure we saw everything we came to see.

Not too bad but definitely had to take 2 or 3 short breaks on my way up. The "living room" set up is adorable. Enjoyed the hike. Getting down was so much easier.

Great views! Steep in portions, but still worth it.

good hike, there is definitely a lot of stair climbing feel mentality to it getting up to the falls and then going up and Beyond to the Upper Falls just be prepared I'ts totally doable as long as you take your time and take plenty of breaks

Amazing, amazing, amazing!!
Winter Falls and Double Falls are both dry at the moment, so unless there’s a bit of rain soon, probably not worth the trip - but even with the falls a bit drier, and having a lighter flow, I would highly recommend this. It’s not too difficult but it’s absolutely beautiful. It took me about 4 hours all up to do the loop, and I was taking my sweet time.
I did the loop counterclockwise (aka South Falls last) which I was happy with - except between South Falls and Lower South Falls there’s about 180 steps... that’s hard to get up after already clocking in a few miles haha. Barely saw anyone going that way for whatever reason - I barely saw anyone at all really. Early September, on a Thursday in the middle of the day... apparently a pretty quiet time for the trail ha!

Trail is one of my faves. good starter trail for those who haven't hiked much. Did it today 40 min up and 34 down.
