Great place to hike alone or with family. Heavy traffic, limited parking.

My kids and I did this hike a week ago and loved it. It is steep at first, but then it gets easier. This was our first hike of the year, so it was nice to start with a shorter one. My kids (ages 19, 6 and 4) get excited each week to pick a new hike to explore, but so far this was their favorite because of the waterfall.

Very exciting hike! Was our First time hiking and glad we chose this one. But the bridge is pretty scary if your terrifed of heights like i am. But glad i made it! We even went with out 2 4 and 6 year old and it wasnt hard for them. They loved it!

This hike is a fun hike to do with anyone. As long as the snow isnt coating the path its very easy - THERE ARE TWO TRAIL HEADS. The first, main one is from Sundance. Sundance is privately owned which means they decide when and how to use their trails. Its super pretty from the resort but you will be required to purchase a lift pass to access the trail head. The second trail stems from aspen grove, which is about 2 miles up the alpine loop PAST sundance. Right before entering the uinta national forest there are two parking lots and the second lot is where youll start the trail.

Great hike! Still snowy I recommend wearing water proof, great traction shoes. still super fun in the snow.

It's a nice trail with a couple nice meadows and the falls is 2 miles from the trailhead. It was a bit tough for our 6 and 4 yr old who generally are fairly athletic. Way too many people and quite a few that lack trail etiquette.

Best view and love the squirrels there!

We visited Donut Falls yesterday. Beautiful hike. Beautiful day! We are from California so I never anticipated snow on the trail considering the beautiful weather. It was compact & easy to navigate mostly, in tennis shoes. As the day wore on the snow became slushy. Few icy spots & a few muddy areas. Very well traveled in & out. We made it to the waterfall & my husband to the donut hole. The mountain was covered in snow & quite step so we stayed at the bottom and enjoy the view of the waterfall & the stream. Would definitely visit again.

A bit muddy at the start. Beautiful walking through the pines. ☮️

Great conditions today. 98% dry, no snow at all. Just too many people!

This was a really nice hike. The majority of it is Bonniville Trail; Bear Loop is a very small offshoot but it’s still very pretty with a nice waterfall.

Bring lots of water; the trail is majority in the sun so sunscreen is essential too. It’s a busy trail but everyone is willing to give everyone else room to get by.

This trail is perfect to bring young children.

This was a beautiful hike. My kids had fun, it was a little hard for my youngest ( she is 3). We will be doing the hike again..

Beautiful hike with gorgeous views!

It was ok, it felt like every 15 feet I was walking into someone posing with a photographer friend. So many people doing portraits literally everywhere. It was difficult not to get in peoples photographs and I kept having to repeatedly stop and wait for strangers to finish their portraits. There were even girls taking portraits in the middle of the main road walking the yellow line holding hands. They almost got hit by cars going both ways and then laughed about it. Such a weird experience.

Great trail, but the bikers are reckless and inconsiderate of families.

Just got back from doing this hike and it was gorgeous with fantastic weather,60’s. We took the Sundance trail which is a little more steep than the regular trail. It’s about 3.6 miles all together. Definitely going back in the summer

The trail was very easy to find based on the directions on AllTrails. trail conditions were fantastic no snow on the trail just a little bit of wetness. there was snow around the sides of the trail but nothing that impeded the climb up. The waterfall was flowing nicely and it was a wonderful afternoon hike!

This is a great trail. It can be pretty busy in spring and summer, though. Continuing south along the BST toward Corner Canyon, there can be a lot of mountain bikers to watch out for. My dog loves this trail almost as much as I do. We visit here about twice a week.

3 bridges, a boulder tunnel, a waterfall, mountain and urban views, this trail has something for everyone!

This trail has a few different entry points from the Bonneville Shoreline Trail (BST). Actually, the BST is the only trail you really need to follow if you want to go on the suspension bridge shown in the title screen. However, if you want to see the waterfall and a smaller bridge, then an extra climb is needed.

The trailhead as shown on alltrails starts in Hidden Valley Park in Sandy (South of Salt Lake City), but when you get there, if you don't know the place, it can be a little tricky to find, mostly as you are not parking at a trailhead, but at the park itself. If you go to the far end of the parking lot toward the mountain (GPS marker is listed in the video), you will see a trail going up the hill, follow this paved path about .1 mile to the actual trailhead. This is the way started the trail. However, if you want to shorten it, go further down the paved path maybe .3-.4 mile til you can see a wide gravel path going up a hill, this will shorten your trail by about .5 mile probably. Walk up this hill, take a right at a set of steps and go down over a bridge, follow the BST Trail to a fenced area. If you go into this fenced area this is actually the Bear Canyon Loop which requires a climb up a few hundred feet incline then down over a bridge, where a small waterfall can be seen. However, if you are there with a dog, or just want to see the suspension bridge, then walk past the wooden gate to the Bear Canyon Loop, go straight and get to the bridge in a jiffy! There are map screen shots in the video trail guide that will help you with this hike.

There are other ways to get to this bridge- other trail entries from nearby neighborhoods, or maybe even if you are walking from the opposite direction on the BST.

Keep in mind there is a good chance to see mountain bikers as well as hikers on this trail.

This trail is also popular with families with small children as well as tourists and trail runners.

Scenic hike. Our trip was cut short by a moose in the middle of the path. There are still some patches of snow that you’ll have to go over, but nothing deep.

Enjoy this hike every time! Kids love it and so does the dog. Nice to have a trail both can go on.

Great trail!

I misread this as .9 one way, so it was disappointingly short and we opted to hop down the BoSho to get some miles. However, if you have small kids or otherwise need a very short (ten minute) hike to a waterfall where they can play, this is great. Dry trail today.

Even though it says only 203 feet elevation gain, I felt it! :) I don't prefer to walk on this trail because of the fact that it's paved. I guess there is a grassy/dirt/forest trail on the other side of the creek which I will try next time. There are also a few waterfalls along the creek which are nice to see!

Fun little after work hike! Trail was dry and in good condition. Hiked in under an hour. A little elevation gain, beautiful views of the city and the suspension bridge is pretty cool, just kind of tucked away up there.

I went in the morning for a nice short hike. It had beautiful views of Draper, the mountains and a nice waterfall you can walk right up to. No snow on this trail as of 2 days ago.

Easy trail, get spot to take photos at the falls

Great hike, and nice scenery! It is completely in the sun, so be well prepared for that!

Enjoyable hike. If you want to bang out a couple of miles with great views, check this trail out! Short and sweet, but a good hike nonetheless
