We really enjoyed this hike! Brought our little guy along:)

Catching up on some reviews, so recognize that this was done mid-December. Seriously such a cool hike. We were the first ones to go up after a small snow fall, so fresh tracks all the way up, although it was a little slippery at parts. Falls were half frozen, which was also neat. Not sure about the traffic or conditions during summer, but this was a great early winter trek.

I would not climb up the falls. That causes a large portion of the salt lake search and rescue calls... just look at it from the bottom. It’s still cool.

Pretty easy. Awesome that they would build such a fancy bridge for the BST

A lotta bang for your buck on this trail. This is the easier of the two routes to access Bells Canyon. Parking is tight though. There are a couple overflow lots.

Beautiful. we loved the lake, the scenery, the rocks, all of it! there were some icy patches, but that's to be expected in the winter.

Gorgeous area ! Spectacular waterfall. It’s a must !!! I’ve hiked it a few times.

Gorgeous hike. Worth it to hike to waterfall. This was my little border collie puppy, Koa first hike...so much fun. I recommend bringing water and a snack for yourself and dog. If you have micro spikes for your hiking boots bring them. There was on spot going back with ice where we had to slide down and I had to have my boyfriend catch me because I went down super fast.

Took my 5y/o, 3 y/o and packed my 1 y/o on my back and they all LOVED it! Incredible views, really cool rocks (which is important when you’re a kid), and the perfect distance for kiddos. We will DEFINITELY do this one again!

The sweetest biking trail. Loved the suspension bridge. Beautifl area for seeing nature as you ride, walk or run.

My wife, two small kids (6 and 8), and i hiked this during one of the warmest winters in history and there was still a lot of ice. Not a very hard trail but you will need something to deal with the very slick conditions. Plenty of photo opportunities, gorgeous views, but come prepared.

Amazing views! This was a bit more difficult in the snow and the trails were icy in spots. Need to wear good shoes/boots to accommodate the snow/ice

This Hike is my most favorite hike all year.  They river is amazing in the spring.  It is about 30 feet across, and it winds and turns along the trail, and creates gorgeous scenery.  The Horse tail falls are breathtaking and so incredible, but I think they are probably missed by many that come up.   It is called dry creek, so I am worried what happens to this river later on in the year.  I have a feeling that it is pretty seasonal, and when the snow finishes melting, then the river becomes less dramatic.
   To get to the hike, take the Alpine exit.  Travel East on Timpanogos Hwy to 5300 W (Alpine Hwy).  Turn East (right) on 200 N to 200 E and turn North (left) on 200 E. When the road forks take Grove Dr. Turn right on Box Elder Drive. 
We took the main left trail down to the river. The river is wide and so windy that it was gorgeous to watch. We walked along the river for 5-10 minutes, and then found a a few logs to cross the river. Do not cross the river if this is slippery or not safe. The trail on the right side of the river also goes up to the falls, and gets closer to first waterfall then the trail on the north of the river. The trail is narrow and is very windy, but has enormous charm because of the moisture of the air, and the area being so lush and beautiful. There are many pines, oaks, and wild flowers. The trail is almost soft at times from all the pine needles. There were times when the trails was a little steep, but there always seemed to be something close to grab to help from sliding. There was only one spot of the trail that I thought was a little dangerous. The trail headed down at a steep angle right towards a cliff into the river, but you can grab lots of things and take it slow to make sure you stay safe. I'm sure the trail will soon detour away from this area. It took us about an hour and a half to make it to the waterfalls. It was on the right side of river falling off the cliff. We were so excited that we made it to the waterfall, that we almost stopped. My husband had viewed this area from google earth, and he wanted to make sure there was not more, and just up a little further is the most amazing waterfall. It reminded me of the beautiful Oregon Waterfalls. I fell in love with it a little more for it has the same characteristics as the windy trail, and the windy river, for the waterfall falls forever while it twists and turns. This is an absolutely stunning falls. I can't wait to go back.
The hike on the north side is difficult, but amazing. It does get tricky and dangerous with 2 things on the north side of the river. First, getting close to the falls feels dangerous no matter how I go down. People have died here, so be careful. Second, one of the times I went up here, we lost the trail for a good 15 minutes. We just couldn't find the Carin to get back on the trail to head back. We finally spotted it hidden in the back of a little clearing with a fire pit in the center. Just pay attention to the Carins if you brave the north side.
The hike is approximately 3 hours round trip. 

As a beginner I had to pause a lot but it was well worth it in the end. Bridge is a bit wobbly but it wasn't scary.

great hike

This was a wonderful hike, beautful scenery and waterfall. The snow covers 90% of the trail, but the footing is safe and trails are clear.

Really fun hike, way down was real slick cause of all the snow. But deffinetly worth the trip

Awesome hiking. Some snow and ice spots so walking stick or ski pole would be very helpful. Falls were beautiful and didn’t see a single other person on the trail (it was Thursday morning however).

beautiful! its a little tedious but definitely worth the visit

Brought my dog up here today and it was beautiful! Only saw a couple people and a few bikers. There was no snow but it is supposed to snow tonight so there will probably be a couple inches tomorrow.

Great hike! The first part is switchbacks up the trail. The bridge is wobbly when walking across, but fun!

Nice easy hike with some scenic views.

Paved parking lots and restrooms at trailhead. Easy-moderate. The falls are beautiful and the spray is refreshing in the Summer. Not too much sun protection/ exposed. Make time for lunch or an iced tea at the iconic Sundance Resort!

It was aight liked the down hill the uphill was narrow and not much to look at.

Relatively easy trail to do. The bridge and the views are awesome. Take Ralphs Trail back down to give yourself a different hike back to Orsen Wells Trailhead.

Great hike, close to the city but quiet enough to be enjoyable. If you keep going a little ways past the bridge the trail passes through a small boulder cave which is kinda neat.

from the orson trail, go up the boneville shoreline trail, when that trail splits go left (toward cherry lodge) but don't go up cherry lodge, keep going and you'll get to the bridge and the bear canyon trail (the restrooms are well kept with soap and seat covers)

Great hike! Did it with our 5 month old and dog. It was slightly more difficult than I anticipated due to the elevation gain.
