My husband and I completed this hike on October 21. We started around 10:30 and were surprised to find there were only a couple people we encountered on the way their, and a few on the way back (maybe everyone gone for fall break?).

The trail is lovely and not too steep. We were a couple weeks late on peak fall foiliage, but everything was beautiful just the same.

Our only regret is that when we got to the waterfall, we scrambled down to the river. Instead of scrambling back up, however, we took a long, meandering way down that added a significant chunk of time to our hike. Next time, we'll have to figure out a better way to get back up to the main trail.

The quiet, beautiful morning was well worth the 90-minute drive for us. A must-do hike for northern Utah!

This is a fee area- costs $3 per vehicle for an okay hike.

Trail is definitely uphill the entire way, deserves its ranking. We went last week and it was pretty snowy at the top so it was very muddy and slick. Views were pretty but just okay. Meadow was full of snow.

Great views, great hike

Great hike! Save time to explore once you get to the falls; there is a nice trail that leads up towards the top of you don’t mind being adventurous and climbing a little.

My husband and I and Scout dog completed this hike on October 13.

The trailhead is easy to find, but I with the trail was better marked because there are some places to turn off. We used to app to double-check where we were several times.

The trail was pleasant, part pavement part dirt, with some undulating hills. Part of the trail is an off-leash dog area, and we enjoyed seeing all the doggos enjoying their Saturday morning. There's also a stream for them to play in.

Another warning.... THERE IS POISON OAK ON THIS TRAIL. My husband and I took a little detour to check out an old bridge. On this side trail, I also peed, and chose the *WRONG* leaves to wipe with. Multiple sleepless nights and trips to urgent care later... I am writing this as a warning so nobody makes the same dumb mistake I did!

Lovely hike. So beautiful the entire way to the Falls, and the Falls themselves are awesome.

Love Sundance and Stewart Falls.

This is an easy and fun family trail. We hiked from the park at the top of Sky Lark Lane to the lookout point and back. This part of the trail was shaded almost the whole way, and the fall colors were beautiful. my kids also enjoyed playing at the park when we were done.

Great mid-range hike. Passing through Church Falls is beautiful, and the views of Millcreek Canyon from the top are amazing. Legs got a little tired towards the top, though.

Consistent climbing up, amazing views along the trail!!

Nice easy trail in north Salt Lake City with dog off-leash. Met by a stray golden retriever. Hot day. Beautiful views of the city and great Salt Lake. Had to contend with a few mountain bikers on trails that criss-crossed the hiking trail making it a bit hectic for the free running dogs.

It was an ok trail.
Not much to see.
we'll find a better hiking spot next time.
$3.00 to hike it.
The dogs enjoyed.

Nice trail. Very muddy right now with melted snow. A lot of downed branches across the path at the moment.

We hiked in the afternoon. There was quite a bit of the trail in the sun; not as shaded as I would have preferred.

My friend and I hiked this trail after work. It was muddy and I slipped twice, but that was my fault. It was cold and snowy but it’s a beautiful trail and a beautiful lookout.

I would mirror Julie Kirby’s comments. Great trail for running, beautiful, but way too many people. Also way too much dog crap on the trail.

Fun, uncrowned trail. Lots of sunshine- very exposed, but always breezy to windy. Pretty views. Lots of rock, so watch your footing and make sure you have the right shoes.

1 hr up. 30 down push hard for a great leg day. great fall views

Save yourself from crowds of people and all the things that come with that and do this hike during the week and early in the day to refresh your spirit in the outdoors. This is a fun hike to a great falls.

Took my nieces and nephews (ages 8, 9, 12, & 13) on this family-friendly hike. The trail gently rolls up and down until the final descent to the falls. It took us 2 hours roundtrip going at a very leisurely pace and with about 20 minutes down at the falls. This trail is not strenuous at all and is very beautiful, especially in the fall.

I love the view from top, totally worth the steep parts. Don’t forget your head lamp, or flash light if waiting for sunset.

I've hiked the east face trail of Grandeur several times and I love it. For me, it's the perfect combination of length + elevation gain that gives me a great workout but I'm not exhausted when it's over.

The parking is not great, however. There's only room for about 8 cars at the trailhead, then you have to park out on the main road which adds about a half mile to your hike.

Love this hike! And so close to downtown Salt Lake City! Very moderate on hills and a beautiful view. I’ve done it a few times and would do it again!

Nice trail that was great for my dog. Has some great overlooks for views. Some parts are very narrow so make sure you are aware with the bikers using the trail. Leaves are turning very pretty up here.

This is a fairly quick hike that is easily enjoyable. Nothing too strenuous, and it provides beautiful views. The falls are a bit low in autumn, but still fun to hike to. It's a bit busier than a lot of other trails in the canyon though.

Great hike, Near town, moderate to difficult at times, NOT horse friendly or Mountain Bike friendly. Dogs on leashes allowed please pick up after your dog, Many families enjoy this hike, some scrambling at times over rocks with some steep side hills. I see kids of all ages just go slow. Single narrow trail, most of the time, Views are best at the mouth of the canyon to over look the city.. You are north of the Gun Range, And If you are on the freeway and you see the big V on the mountain This canyon is the first one north of the V. It is the Deuel creek south hike. (No pictographs on this hike it is another hike). At the little Kiosk it shows the trail ending long before the rope swing or the first waterfall past the rope swing. You will see some beautiful places most people think the waterfall is a rock or steep spot where the water shoots down a steep rocky spot. It is beautiful and worth a look. However it is not the waterfall. The water cascades down the side of the rock and it disappears in the thick brush. Not technically free falling, but it is nice all the same. Summer is my favorite late May to Sep, It is steep in places and requires some scrambling over rocks and steep drop offs. Those steep places with narrow trail start about 20 feet past the trail head. Dont let the kids get out of sight at the start of the trail. If you have little kids just go slow and you will find places near the creek to let them play. You will see poison ivy so know what to look for and how to identify it over 4 season. Google it. Both trails will meet up at the creek so if you parked at the North Trail head make sure that when you head down to take the North trail. Same as the South stay on the trail that is near the creek. You dont want to add a mile up and down at the end of a long hike. You will only make this mistake once :) I HIGHLY recommend a high clearance vehicle on both trail heads once you leave the pavement, mufflers are expensive. Some times the grader has gone over the trail and it is ok other times I have seen people that where not so lucky. When the road Ts in the bottom of the canyon take the road to the right and then at the second T turn back towards the canyon heading back north about a 1/2 mile from the first T. This trail is forest serve land and all the same rules apply. The only true water fall is past the rope swing. Kids do not make it this far. This is where the nice trail begins. The trail and will start to look like a high alpine hike with tall pines and less Gamble oak. If you continue about another 30-40 minutes past the rope swing you will be rewarded with a view of the waterfall that you will see in the distance it is the one in the pic that says Centerville Canyon. If you continue to hike up the trail it will go right by the waterfall where you can walk out and look down over the falls. It is just a little stream at this time of the year not much water at all. You will not see may people that will venture past the falls. It is quiet and if you are aware of your surroundings you will see all kinds of tracks and sign. If you continue up the trail it will eventually cross over two other streams and the canyon will end when the trail disappears in a Forrest. This trail has several other wooden bridges that are not forest service approved and are not sponsored by the city. It appears to be maintained by locals who do so at their own expense. We are always looking for volunteers who want to help contribute to the health and safety of the trail. And we recommend you do that thru the city who will coordinate the work thru the forest service and the sponsored third party groups. This is Forest Service land and when venturing out please be aware that hunting season is open at this time of the year I would recommend bright colored clothes. And to stay on the trail. You can also camp just off the trail and you will find a variety of camps spots.

Enjoy and let us know what you think and what you liked about our hike.

Take a hike.

This trail is great for trail running. My only complaint is its popularity. Too many people. It thinned out after the first 2 miles. I clocked this at 7 miles to elephant rock and back.

Loved this hike today! Refreshing and beautiful!

pretty challenging, but accessible trail. Beautiful on the way up, even more so at the top. as far as wildlife, got to see a tarantula on the way down.
