Very nice hike. The views are incredible. And to have the stream right along the trail was awesome! Will definitely do this hike again

great all around hike not to difficult unless you want to climb up to get a closer look at the falls.

good short hike and very nice falls.

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

Fun & easy hike. We parked near the main road & had to walk in on the paved road, but it was still fairly easy. You can try driving all the way to the trailhead to see if you can get a parking spot - be careful not to park in a marked spot that says no parking at any time or you’ll be ticketed (even on Sundays)
My two year old hiked all the way in with the exception of a couple rocky spots. Come willing to get a little wet & you’ll have a good time.
We hiked up to the top where you can see the actual “donut fall”. Brings lots of water & maybe even some snacks.

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!

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.

Great trail for kids. The last little way up to the actual falls is a bit of a scramble but a fun challenge for the kids. We even ran into a few moose on the trails.

I’ve done his trail twice. It’s really good. Well trafficked so if you get hurt there’s someone close by to help. The downside is that it’s well trafficked so you’re never really alone. Ok the bright side, great cellphone coverage. At least on T-Mobile. I assume Verizon and AT&T’s coverage will be just as good.

It’s a fun trail. Do it in the morning. It gets hot in the summer afternoon.

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

I love this hike. Be prepared to wait in certain areas because it’s always busy and with lots of little children. It’s great to see their happy faces but it can be dangerous. Always keep an eye on your children.

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.

Great trail. It's well covered and stays pretty cool. The slightly steeper parts are well staggered, good exercise but not too difficult. Very beautiful location.

Short. Easy with kids. Beautiful.

Thanks our first nature hike in Utah. It was great for the kids. Some river crossings and pretty forest to walk through. The last part after the bridge was a little tough for our 3 year old (some boulders to climb up and down), so we skipped the actual falls and just played in the water by the bridge.

This is my favorite hike of the season. I’ve done Cecret Lake, Big Baldy, Silver Lake and Battle Creek Falls. I’d give it a 5* if it wasn’t for the amateurs hiking on the trail. If you see a trail runner, move over and let them pass. Falls were refreshing and great to cool off under before I headed back down.

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!

Nice easy hike for the grandchildren (and for me). Recommend avoiding weekend if possible, very crowded and parking was a mess. Otherwise a delightful hike.

Fairly gentle hike with a fantastic reward awaiting at the end. Beautiful small waterfall. Very nice hike. Perfect late day trip.

Fun easy hike. Get there early for parking and nice weather! 10/10 would go again. Went w/ a 9 year old and he loved it.

Did this hike this morning and loved it! So beautiful.

We went yesterday morning and got to the trailhead around 8:45am, got great parking, and enjoyed the 65 degree weather. It was gorgeous and the kids all did it easy-peasy! Scrambling up the rocks to the waterfall and stepping into the cave where the water falls through the “donut” hole has to be one of my favorite hiking moments. That’s why we have to do this one at least once a year. As we were hiking down, HOARDS of people were hiking up. Families, school groups, foreigners...everybody’s up for this flavor of donut.

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.)

Great hike. A little steep at places.

First hike and really enjoyed it! Some inclines and declines! Good for beginners and small children.

We took my 2 year old, she was able to complete the whole trail herself. Very pretty, with lots of shade. We started the trail around 9:00am. It was very crowded on the way back, about 10:30am.

This trail is marked “easy” but it is not!! It is definitely “moderate” and if you are an inexperienced hiker, possibly even “difficult “. There are rocks and tree roots to navigate especially along the last section leading to the falls. And it is a challenge for small children. Most kids under 7 that I saw on the trail were not happy. One 3 year old was afraid of how high up we were along part of the trail and cried for a good part of it

Now all that being said, it is a beautiful hike!! Lots of shade, wildflowers (even in dry July), scenic views across the mountains and the waterfall did not disappoint!! Just be prepared with water and snacks, especially if you have kids with you.

easy hike. the directions took us to a culdesac tho? the hike actually starts at the park next door to the lds church. we did the loop where the waterfall was supposed to be as well and i never saw anything? lol maybe i was too busy talking or theres not much left this time of year?
