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.

Hiked this trail two days ago, very easy with a pretty view at one point.

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.)

It was a pretty boring trail until you hit the creek which was a lot more fun. Pretty view of bridal veil but nothing you can’t see from the highway. No one else on the trail which was nice. The stone couch was a nice place for a picnic.

Beautiful scenery.

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

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.

Great trail with several different types of trails, the app says 5.6 Miles but it is more like 6.8. The views are great and the walk back is much easier than getting up there! Took about 4 hours and we spent time enjoying the scenes along the way.

Much nicer trail road compared with Battle Creek - better views also. Highly recommended. Maybe back in fall time.

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

This is a fairly straightforward climb to a waterfall that is, as others have noted, pretty dry this season. The first 1.3 - 1.5 miles of the ascent are rather featureless. Once you reach the higher altitudes, you start to get some views of the canyon and Alpine and Lehi beyond. It is a pleasant trail, one of the busier ones we hiked, but probably not one we will repeat.

As to the fork at the log referred to in previews reviews: there is a sign post pointing to Scout Falls which takes you on a short (but slightly difficult climb) and, if you take the other fork, you climb above the falls and get a nice view of the area.

The great: not much other than the clear paths.

The good: some of the views are nice and it is a good workout.

The not so great or good: busy trail, much of the trail is meh, a long way to drive to the trailhead.

Hike this often with my 3 year old — It’s our favorite! Nice for a leisure hike with our dogs and plenty of places of hang a hammock and relax in nature.

Our favorite hike! It starts on a dirt road with a pretty intense uphill walk but opens up onto a creek running down the mountain. You can go as far as you want up the mountain following along the creek. It goes quite a ways! Nicely shaded in the afternoon.

The trail itself is beautiful right now. Lots of shade and wildflowers. It is a steady incline the whole way to the falls, but is very manageable. The falls themselves were a bit disappointing due to the lack of snowpack from this past winter. Like others have mentioned take timpanooke trail and stay right at the fork with the log. From there it’s a few gradual switchbacks to the falls. Word of caution, getting to the actual falls requires you to do a little bit of climbing up some rocky area ensnared with tree roots and the falls themselves are on a somewhat sheer cliff face.

It was fun and really beautiful. Not hard at all!

the falls had little to no water and the trail wasn't well posted. have to be careful you don't continue on the timp trail.

Spring looks like it's been capped and goes through a pipe. During higher runoff water could come out an overflow pipe. Good trail

Fantastic trail. Beautiful, family-friendly while still being a bit of a challenge. Beautiful falls at the end. Can get crowded, but if you go early it's just you and the wilderness! Watch for wild life; I saw a mother moose and 2 calves with her!

Trail is great for exercise at all levels! For more difficulty, increase the distance or do the whole thing, plus some connecting trails to the North. Also, the early morning after the 4th of July gives you a fairly empty path most of the way!
...did encounter 1 person that didn't know how to control her dog. But over a 74 mile ride that morning, that's pretty good odds!

We went up via Slate Canyon and it was gorgeous! It adds an extra mile or so but well worth it. The final ascent is about 2500 ft of elevation gain over the last mile and a half so prepare yourself! Drink lots of water the day before to avoid cramping like I did! I’ve done around 15 peaks in Utah and this is by far the hardest. That being said it was absolutely gorgeous and worth the effort

Great hike. Read previous reviews to follow the 7.7 mike hike and to stay right at the log so it worked out well! Lots of shade. Great for dogs. Proved to be a good workout!

Went for an evening hike. Not a single soul but our group. First part is pretty steep, then turns into a walk along the stream. We crossed at several points, but that wasn't necessary. Saw a few snakes, so be aware of what's on the trail. Overall, nothing spectaculat, but still a nice getaway that avoids the crowds at other more popular trails.

Fun trail to get off main roads, great for beginners and casual riding

This trail is pretty lame up until you get to the creek. Before the creek its a pretty steep slant with the only good view being behind you of bridal veil falls. However, once you start going up the creek (following the little cairns along the way) you can see some pretty amazing smaller waterfalls and river formations.

Pretty creek at the top, but not really worth the effort put in to get there.

The wildflowers were beautiful as was the view. As previous people have said, don't miss the carin. My friend and I did and we ended up bush wacking up the side. Stay on the right side of the edge. We also did it from Slate Canyon. That was the prettier overall part of the hike though the views were better from Provo summit. If you have a vehicle that could drive up Squaw peak road, that would be the recommended route.

Good easy hike for a beginner

This is a beautiful hike and the wild flowers are starting to appear. The waterfall isn't very big, but still really pretty so bring your camera. I will say that if you have bad knees this might not be the best hike for you. Also, the trailhead isn't marked very well so it's a little confusing. Take the trail marked as Timpooneke (the one marked as 7 miles.) You'll pass a few small water falls on the way up and then you'll see a big log where the trail forks keep right at the fork and keep going up. You'll see the bigger waterfall and when you keep going up for about another half a mile it levels off to where you have a beautiful 360 degree view, very beautiful! =)

Holy moly this hike should have an extra hard rating. Squaw Peak and Big Baldy are rated hard and those are not as hard as this one.
This trail takes no time getting steep. I drove up the Squaw Peak Rd and started there (high clearance highly recommended). Hike over some rolling hills up a dirt road then there is a cairn that points you up a narrow trail to your right - don’t miss it. You’ll hike through heavy brush and straight sun before it gets to rock trail that’s pretty much a stair climber. Then it’s scree. Lots of loose scree. And all in exposed sun. Only tender mercy is a good wind blows once you get out of the heavy shrubs.
There are 3 false summits which was mentally taxing for me.
Bring PLENTY of water and mentally prepare yourself for a no mercy uphill grind.
Took the dogs up - don’t take yours if they aren’t used to loose scree and don’t handle heat/straight sun well.
Outstanding views overall though and tons of wildflowers! No snow (6/22/18)
