Fun little trail with the kids. Loose cows on the trail, so watch for the cow pies. I was surprised at the amount of liter on the trail. Packed out what we could. Beautiful area and easy hike.

family friendly

I really enjoyed this hike but I don’t know how the trail was measured to be only 4.4. I got 6 miles round trip on my GPS and the last 1.2 miles ish was definitely hard but the falls were very pretty. I was worried that they weren’t going to be anything special given it’s late summer but I was impressed. I thought that from the 2mile post I would only have .2 left but it was farther than that by about a half mile. Did anyone else have this same experience?

great hike, loved it. wish I brought a floating device and swim clothes.

Awesome hike with a little incline towards the end to the lower falls. Lots of shade.

Great hike but very crowded and a lot of dogs (poop).

Just a quick walk but a beautiful little spot.

Beautiful hike. The waterfall is worth the effort. There is overflow parking just past the trailhead, heading into little cottonwood. Can get really busy on saturdays and holidays.

July 2018 - The trail is in two parts, there is the paved trail along the bottom caynon next to Provo River. Well maintained as part of the Provo river trail, many parking lots, and food trucks. The trail to go up the to the mid-point of the falls is pretty skech in places. Very narrow in many parts, and loose shale rock everywhere. There are a few places where the the trail has clearly been wiped out by rock slides and is a little puckering for the less then fleet of footed. There is also another option to get to the mid-point, climb the falls themselves, lots of loose shale rock, water, and steep.

This trail is really pretty; the first 1/2 mile is hot, but once you hit the shade, it is rather pleasant. The hike along the creek is cool with plenty of opportunities to cool off if you choose. The final 1/2 mile to the waterfall is a little steep, but it is completely worth it in the end. The trail is heavily trafficked, so if you are looking for seclusion, this is not the place.

Beautiful trail leading to beautiful falls! This is a good choice for kids and inexperienced hikers.

First hike for me. Little bit out of shape. Found the initial 0.5 mile moderately difficult and last 0.9 miles really hard. It's full of rocks and little steeper. I had to take breaks to catch the breath and continue in that last stretch. Do yourself a favor wearing good hiking shoes.
The lake/reservoir was dry and the waterfall was not breathtaking. May be August is not the month if you want to see a beautiful waterfall and lake. But the view of the valley from the waterfall was awesome.
Start by 7am to beat the crowd and heat.

amazing trail, moderately trafficked but not too bad, the landscape and veiws/forests are beautiful, no complaints!

longest .7 of my life...

It's very easy hike. My two year old loved every minute of it. It's pretty and we loved the water fall.

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.

Decided to go for a hike as it was my first full day in Utah. Just know there are three parking lots that all lead to these falls so remember the way you went up/need to go down- I spent 30 minutes walking around trying to find my car. The hike up was beautiful, difficult at times and flat at times. At the end, the last .7 miles are extremely tough but then you’re rewarded with the waterfall. Highly recommend.

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

Awesome hike. Great views and enough of a challenge to keep the heart rate up. Hiked up at a pretty good pace (but stopped to take pics a few times) and took about 50 mins to get to the falls. Ran back down at a moderately fast pace and it took a little less than half the time it took to get up. Map estimate of distance is right on - my gps said 4.45 miles for the out and back.

loved this hike it's a bit hard for kids but the falls at the end was awesome.

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

Just another way to celebrate a beautiful wat to celebrate a beautiful day in Utah, with outdoors activities with friends and family.

have hiked this trail twice this summer. better each time. will be doing it again very soon.

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!

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.

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

Short and sweet! There are a lot of bridges to help you along the way and make it easier for your kids.

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.

Has always been my most favorite hike! It’s definitely a challenge but well worth it! It’s very steep about half way up, which makes it almost harder to come down! Make sure you have good griped shoes and PLENY of water! Definitely depending on the time of year you do it of course! I did it for the last time last year 8months pregnant and then again this year for the first time 8months out! LOVE IT!

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.
