Fantastic hike, well worth the effort to get there. Took my 2 kids (10 & 14) and though they were tired going up, the lake was their favorite! Would definitely do this hike again. Make sure you bring 3+ liters of water! So many people on the trail today ran out while still high up. One gentleman was completely out of water on the upper switchbacks and nearly fell off a steep incline right in front of us! We were able to grab him in time, sit him down, give him some water, electrolytes and a fruit bar, and he was apparently okay, but they had no food and he looked to be in serious shock. Though a relatively short hike, it’s hot and strenuous at times. Loved it!

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

good short hike and very nice falls.

I love this hike. So beautiful and a great escape from the heat. Amazing views and the best reward; silver lake.

Got an early start to this hike (around 7-8) and it was a little chilly. The first 1/3 of the hike is in a beautiful aspen forest. Couldn’t get enough of the foliage! The hike then opens up and you’re able to see some beautiful views of the back of timpanogos. After a short steep section to the top, we were rewarded with a view of the amazing lake. It was around 9 at that point but the lake was warm enough that I took a quick swim. Beautiful clear lake! As we descended it got really crowded so I suggest if you want to have this lake to yourself come early.
All in all one of my favorite hikes out there.

Wonderful trail! The lake is crystal-clear. If you want to avoid crowds, go early in the morning.

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.

We looked all over Utah valley area trying to find a good hike for our small family reunion—something young kids, grandparents and pregnant women could do but also something that outdoor enthusiasts and avid hikers would enjoy. This hike was perfect. The drive is scenic and beautiful. The trail is lovely, albeit short, with meadows and (sometimes) flowers and spectacular views right off the path. The view right before the last ascent of the hike is lovely, and those who felt unable to climb the last bit felt satisfied to stay there. The views at the top are splendid though, and it’s not a long climb up the steep part. We enjoyed this trail so much we’ve been back twice since.

awesome

Great hike! Be sure to bring lots of water, and if you're going to bring your dog, pack them lots of water too if it's hot. About half way up the tree cover is very sparse and it can get hot in the summer.

Short. Easy with kids. Beautiful.

Amazing hike! This is definitely one of our favorite.

Hiked this trail two days ago, very easy with a pretty view at one point.

I did this trail on Mother’s Day 2018. It was my first hike of the season and first hike since I was a teenager.

It was nice. The trail was kind of worn out as you approached the saddle. Overall a nice hike that got me hooked!

Great easy hike with incredible views. Our 3yo hiked the whole way no problem.

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!

Hiked this last weekend and it was hot! After the first 1/4 mile, the trail is pretty exposed so try to hike early! The dirt road to get to the parking lot is pretty rough if you have a passenger car. The hike itself is fairly easy.. however, if you choose to hike up to silver glance lake from silver lake.. it climbs 800 feet in 3/4 of a mile so it does take it out of you! Otherwise very pretty and a lot of places to relax around the lake.

Beautiful hike that gets surprisingly hard towards the top. Just be prepared it gets steep the last .5 Miles. Just for that I think it may deserve a Hard rating. The rest is Moderate and pretty shaded overall.

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.)

Beautiful scenery.

Went on this hike during heat of the day. Thankfully there are water crossings about 5 times spread out along the hike so the pup could take a cold sip and dip. The views are incredible.

Very beautiful hike with amazing views of the many trees and surrounding mountains this time of year. Also, the lake at the end is very rewarding. Pace yourself, bring plenty of water and maybe some snacks. Overall a very pleasant hike.

Definitely a steady climb. I always thought there was just one water fall because I always stopped down at the base and hung out then went back down. Today I kept going up past the waterfall and discovered more falls. The trail does continue to climb. we stopped at the area where it forks off to either Curly Springs or Dry Creek. The sign said only 1.3 miles from the Kiwanis park (where the parking lot was) felt like we went further. The hike was gorgeous and past the falls there was an occasional person or people hiking but for the majority of the time we were alone.

Beautiful lake, totally worth it. Bring plenty of water and make sure you have some time to hang out at the top.

I love this hike but I find it’s most beautiful near fall or when snow is out. The water turns a deep teal color and there’s hardly anyone out! Good amount of challenge, most of it being in the last half mile.

Steep and hard with a backpack, but gorgeous and super worth it.

Great hike, mostly in the shade.

2 hours up/1 hour 20 min down with 3 kids (10, 8 and 5.) Your young kids will likely need a pack or be carried some part of the way! (We saw it and experienced it ;). It is steep up with lots of elevation gain. We started at 2:30pm, 95 degree Summer day... it was HOT (yeah, not so ideal). We went through a ton of water. The way down was so much more pleasant with cooler air!! Very beautiful hike though with a fun lake as the end destination. We fished. Many people were swimming, taking a dip and even brought floaties to lounge on the lake during this hot Summer day.
