Beautiful hike. Hardly saw anyone else on trail. A bit confusing when you get closer to the waterfall but we were able to find a nice shady spot near the water.

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.

Great hike. Many trails, easy to get off on a different path

Hiked this in August with a healing ankle sprain. Fairly easy with beautiful views. Highly recommended.

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

This trail was very challenging because of how steep it was. There are lots of rocks and boulders, and you go over a couple of streams, walking on logs. Lots of shade, which was nice. Very good exercise, but I felt that the moderate rating should be more like moderate+, though I saw a lot of children on the trail.

Horses and dogs are allowed on the trail, so there is quite a bit of horse manure and the occasion dog pile you must avoid. We ended up not doing the entire trail, but instead turned off about half way up to go see the falls. That made the difficult hike worth it. Very beautiful and refreshing.

WARNING: When we reached the waterfall, we saw a young man lying at the base of it, badly hurt. He had fallen from the top of the waterfall (about 60+ feet). He had to be life-flighted out. I tried to get where he was, to help the others who were helping him, as I am trained in first aid/cpr, but the rocks were very, very slippery, even when dry. Please be careful if you venture to the actual falls.

All in all, a nice hike, especially if you want a good work out. The round trip from the falls is about 2.5-3 hours.

Great hike!

Amazing views of salt lake city

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

Great hike to the falls. If you want to go further, it's nice, too. Fairly steep after the falls, but not hard.

It's steep, but the cave is beautiful. Great hike

Short steep hike with a very scenic view at the end . Not one of my favorites mainly because the lack of forest.

I loved this hike!! It was great for me and my boys!! It was a good length and a mix of flat and a little steep!

Great hike but it’s straight up an in a neighborhood witch is kinda off but for a fast one I’d go again took my kids youngest is 4 an she did just fine just rocky right before the falls

Just visited today, hike is pretty easy until the steep part right before the lake as others have mentioned. The GPS location I got from AllTrails kept trying to make us take a private road on someone's property so I recommend stopping at the parking lot at the top of Guardsman Pass. Out of the 6 of us who swam in the lake only 1 found a leech on them so enter at your own risk!

It’s 1.5 miles straight up hill. No gradual rises but totally doable. Went with my sons 5th grade Fieldtrip and had a great time!

Always a great, quick hike. Hot hot hot so bring water.

LOVED this hike. Took about 2.5 hours round trip and it was so worth it.

It’s a beautiful overlook. Steeper than you think but short. There’s street parking at the trailhead.

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

The view is amazing. Anyone that says differently is taking it for granted. Bring lots of water because it gets hot and it’s uphill the whole way up. Make reservations ahead of time and bring a jacket for the caves because it can get fairly cold inside the caves. Loved it!!

decent quick hike. hiked in, had lunch and enjoyed the falls. easy trail with a little elevation. saw toddlers having no issue.

great for the dogs. Best to do in the morning or evening because it is very exposed.

This is an awesome trail for a quick hike.

Anyone giving this a bad review probably just has a bad attitude.

The falls are beautiful, and there are some great views.

Sunday afternoon was a great time to do this. I only ran into a few people.

Easy and short hike but it gets rocky and steep at the end. It was crowded and there were lots of dogs. I went there on a Sunday at 4:00pm. I saw some people swimming and fishing . Overall nice hike

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