Nice hike. I left my snowshoes in the car, but packed some crampons. The steep part of the trail (first quarter mile) was nicely packed, and I only used my crampons for one short steep section on the way down. that said, the flatter portions, particularly near the lake, were doable, but tough going with quite a bit of sinking in a few spots. If you have lightweight snowshoes, I recommend packing them up the hill and putting them on once things level out.

01 19 19 tried hiking this trailer based on the most reset reviews. absolutely CANT MAKE IT WITHOUT SNOWSHOES. kept sinking to my waste each time I tried to get up. will try again next week with snowshoes.

Great for puppers and not bad in the winter

Fun quick little hike, definitely recommended spikes or poles, both would be great but I didn’t have either and was fine.

Hiked this today with my 10 y/o on snowshoes. It was pristine and beautiful. We blazed half the trail in 15-18” of fresh powder. Once we dropped back in we didn’t hear the snowmobiles out at the main parking. Definitely do this again to see it in the summer. Loved.

Great hike. I did a Google Earth Trail on Saturday here. You can do a virtual like walk of the trail and into the cave at www.shaunasadventures.com or on Google Earth. We had on spikes/ Crampons and made it to the cave fine. Headed up a little before 9, and there was not too many crowds, but as we headed down there was a huge group heading up. Most people heading up had sleds. I wish I would have asked them where they were heading to sled. I am thinking they were going to take the V shaped trail marked on my blog to the North Fork road and then sled down it. Definitely would have been fun sled ride down.

Went there in January, without snowshoes we lasted about a mile. It was serene, looked like some folks went before us so we just followed their path until we couldn’t walk anymore without falling thigh deep into the snow. Would go again but with snowshoes.

easy hike, good views. Dont try and get a picture by the falls unless you want to walk back with freezing feet. Ha!

Beautiful, easy hike. Cool ice cave. Hiked today (mid-January) with hiking/snow boots and we were just fine.

I gave this four stars because I am sure this is a remarkable trail… but my personal experience, it should’ve been a zero. But it’s not a trail fault, I picked the worst day to do this trail. When I got to the peak, there was zero visibility to the city below. Also, there was a lot of ice on the ground and it was very difficult to walk up. I knew I should’ve waited for a clear day, but I only had a couple of hours free in order to make this hike happen at all. I will see if I can get time to do this trail one more time, but I doubt it. Anyway, I’m sure this trail is beautiful in the summertime.

Went in January so the trail was covered in snow. I took my 3 year old. It was perfect length for him and he loved the wood bridges. I wasn't a fan of listening to traffic driving by but my little boy had a blast.

We hiked this yesterday in a light snow. It’s a quick hike, although the path is quite steep and the snow cover makes it a bit slippery. The forest is gorgeous to walk through. I want to return on a clear day in the summer to see the lake and the view.

Lots of options and outlets, did in late fall and it was great. Will do again in spring also great for trail running

Great little snowshoe hike in winter for all levels. Easily accessible from Emigration Canyon Road. Scenic views/overlooks along the way.

Great little snowshoe hike in winter for all levels.

My third time going. It was muddy and icy, but overall very nice.

Best view of SLC I’ve seen.

This is a great trail to hike. The first part does get steep, but the views are well worth it. I've done this in early summer and late fall, and both times have been great, though early summer was a little swampy.

great hike! we didn't go up the last portion but it was so much fun anyway. snow was packed in but we had spikes and poles. definately need to go back and go up to the cave!

went yesterday. this is right off the road, just a few steps up the gully. it's mostly frozen over. so glad I had my spikes on. the trail right now goes right up on top of the frozen creek, so be careful on the ice. very pretty! cant wait to go back in the spring!

Be sure to have proper gear if going when the trail is icy!

Went after fresh snow. So pretty. Going up with micro spikes was a good idea. We only went .5 mile up as it was getting dark. Hope to go back sometime to finish the trail. Great views!

I hiked this yesterday with a friend. It wasn’t too crowded and the snow was packed down so hiking boots were fine. We didn’t do the very last part to the actual falls because it was too steep and slippery. Other people were doing it though.

The trail was traveled enough and the snow was so packed that we never used our snowshoes. Hiked a little past the Mud Springs Trail junction. Returned on the Mud Springs/Mill Canyon for a nice Loop.

Great for dogs, great for views.

Gorgeous views. Loose gravel near the trailhead, two areas where the path (briefly and slightly) narrows closer to the top. We were happy to have Yaktrax and trekking poles.

We hiked Stewart Falls in spikes first and it was so pretty, we wanted more, so we decided to do Timp Falls. There were sections we wished we had snowshoes and some places where the trail had small slides across it. Timp Falls was totally frozen, but gorgeous.

Pretty waterfall. Super short hike. It took me longer to cross the road at the S curve than actually hike to the falls. I went left after crossing the road and starting into the trail. I followed the footprints in the snow, and they crossed the river to the left hand side , but you can't get too close on that side, and then they went back and crossed to the right hand side and got really close to the falls. It was a little stressful crossing the snow covered stream and hoping the ice is solid underneath, but I kept using my sticks to make sure it was solid and it was pretty hard. I did a 360 degree StreetView trail here, if you want to view it, it is on Google Earth, and my blog https://www.shaunasadventures.com/2019/01/360-adventure-hidden-falls-and-mill-b.html?m=1.
It was nice to pair it with walking up Mill B trail to the picnic area for the river is so pretty and it is right there.
I have to add that even though this was a nice hike, they don't plow the parking lots so parking is stressful along the road. Also, I had to drive about 10-15 minutes up the road to finally find a safe place to turn around when I wanted to go home. I saw people stuck trying to turn around in not safe spots, and I felt so bad for them, but I was terrified of helping and getting stuck myself. Just FYI.

Amazing short little hike. It has hard snow pack so no snow shoes necessary. The view at the falls is amazing. Truly a great one for the whole family. And the reward is well worth the work.
