Steep, butt-kicking hike with amazing views throughout but especially at the top. No prob in the snow, would have been easier with micro spikes/yak tracks.

One of my favorite hikes. some steep parts but overall pretty easy.

Fun trail. Ice underneath the snow. Needed cleats. The trail above the bridge was a little dice. Made for a little adventure

Pictures don’t do it justice, way more impressive in person! Micro spikes are a definite need throughout the trail! The last .5 mile is super steep... going up was easy in comparison to going down. Though some parts of going back down turned out to be super fun since we ended up using our butts as a sled

Very nice trail with gentle incline. Be careful where you park though! They were towing cars at the trailhead for parking in a "fire lane". There is no additional parking on the shoulder of the narrow canyon road allowed, so arrive early. It seems to be a busy trailhead, although there is enough trail that you could still get some quiet time to your self.

Great day hike trail in the winter. Lots of cute pups along the way and a great payoff at the end. A bit slippery coming back - Would rec bringing spikes, yak trax, poles or snow shoes if you have them. Still doable if you don’t!

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.

Nothing short of amazing. I have done this hike four times this year but the winter brings a whole new beauty to this hike. Waterfall is mostly frozen. Beautiful take your camera.

One of my favorite trails I’ve ever hiked!! Love the river that’s right next to you and the scenery is amazing!! Definitely a must do!!

Cut the last portion of the trail in. Snow is about 2 feet deep in the last section

The trail was well defined, serene, and quiet. I recommend, some water, a snack, spikes, and snowshoes. Worth the views!!

I just did this hike about a week ago. The snow makes it a little bit more challenging, but that’s the fun of it. It’s a short but steep hike so you feel like you’re still getting a good workout, and the views on the way up are amazing.

Good hike not to known. Lots of sun and no shade. I have hiked it many times. The best time is in the fall, less sun, less heat and no snakes

Beautiful hike at the end of November (11/30/18). Heavy snow kept us from attempting the last quarter mile but I was playing it safe with my girlfriend. It's doable but slick. Really enjoyed the canopied hiking and rushing creek.

Our first hike in the area! Waterfall Canyon did not dissappoint. There is snow on the ground pretty much the last half mile which adds to the difficulty although it's still an easy enough hike. Falls are frozen pretty good at this point and make for great photos. Thank you to the property owners who let the public on their lands.

A real hidden gem, did this last week, got a little snow. I could see where the vegetation could block the views, but in the fall it was beautiful.

We hiked this trail on September 5th and it was a beautiful fall hike. The trail was mostly dirt and it varied between loose and hard packed on the hike up. The lake was very pretty and we saw a mother moose with two calves drinking from the lake. While the trail doesn't have an official end to it, the views on the way up were amazing and I look forward to hiking this trail again.

absolutely gorgeous. after a set of switch backs, you follow a stream all the way up to the falls which offers a nice tranquil sound for the entire hike. You also see some amazing views of the mountains throughout. The hike is fairly challenging in a few places! younger children probably wouldn't be the best to bring here, but older kids would be okay. One of the best hikes I've done!

Amazing views all the way up. Missed peak fall by a week. Trail wasn’t marked very well but it looked like all variations lead to the same point. Phone was at 1% couldn’t record down.

Great jog.

This was a really great trail to get some excercise on. You are on a steady elevation gain the entire time but it is very pretty and worth the time. I recommend poles for this trail. The trail signs are a bit confusing due to them stating there is a North and South Taylor Canyon. Can't find that on any map. I stayed on the signs for North and it took me up into the canyon. The trails runs along Taylor Creek and you hear/see water at times. I liked the fall leaves everywhere and the low volume of traffic.

Great trail to take a dog on. I love being in the trees, shade and fall leaves.

My favorite trail so far for Autumn colors, I went with my friend on Sunday. Very friendly trail as well enjoyed seeing everyone out with their dogs and children. Everyone greeted one another and said good morning.

First time to Ogden. We wanted to see a little bit of autumn since we live in the Vegas desert. We did this hike with my 10 year old daughter and 5 year old son. We loved it! Beautiful foliage and the 2nd half of the trail was covered in marigold colored leaves and red leaves. The last stretch what some what difficult for the 5 year old given the steepness and all of the rocks but he made it to the top. Great trail for dogs. Can’t wait to come back and bring your husky.

Beautiful creekside trail especially in the fall. It is moderately challenging if you are not in shape. I personally love this hike and repeat it quite often.

Did not realize that this was on the site. It use to be a little secret that not many people could find. This is a fun place to visit.

Nice quick hike trail. I had my two dogs but the trail is pretty skinny at some parts so we kept moving out of people's way. Trail is moderately flat for the beginning then goes up a bit then down again. The climb back up isn't terrible and the bottom by the stream is beautiful. Was there a few weeks ago and there was still a solid amount of fish (most alive but some where dead as it's getting to the end of the season). Lots of people at the bottom but you can keep hiking down to find more solitude.

Beautiful hike. Steep but manageable. I wouldn't rate this as a hard peak but take your time. Mostly shaded so it went from chilly to warm as you got into the sun. Did this last Sunday and it was a nice 70 outside. Gorgeous views of the valley and take your time at the top to enjoy. Your hard work will pay off!
