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.

Really nice little trail. Pretty much a scenic walking path that follows the path of the river. Especially nice in the fall.

I went up here with my family this summer. Only a 2-minute walk to a pretty cool waterfall. Super quick and easy, but super fun too!

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.

Short but falls were hidden so couldn’t view.

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.

For such a short hike, this was a good workout. Like other hikers have mentioned, the trail is narrow, rocky and steep in places. Also, it has lots of poison ivy, so I recommend wearing long pants. But, the scenery is beautiful, and the pictographs definitely make it worth it.

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.

I did this a couple years ago and it was gorgeous!!

Anyone know if we can still hike it now in October?? I know it says best through September but does that mean it’s closed off?

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.

Beautiful falls

this was a great trail.

Great trail with great views. First part is UP but as others have said, it levels out to a moderate climb. It was easy to find the cut over to the stack of rocks at the top today because the many footprints visible in the snow. Summit was clear and view was awesome. The trail itself had some snow, a bit of ice and a small area where the overflowing creek, coupled with snowmelt, make the trail it's own. All part of the fun.

Dry and hot, Stop at Ghost falls was pleasant

Nice hike

Went in on September 28. Really windy. Great spot at the lower lake. Didn’t see the bear, but at 6 pm Saturday night a forest fire to west threatened to blow in. Got the heck out through smoke and darkness. Check the fire conditions before you go!

Amazing views and the fall colors were breathtaking. We had an amazing day.

We went to perfect timing with fall leaves and weather. At the top (waterfall) , it can get cold so we were glad we had a good jacket (next time I will bring gloves for my kids hand). Good thing we had a friend who knew exactly where to find the location, it can get little tricky off HWY 89. We started to hike around 3:30pm and were able to catch the sunset by 7pm. It is dog friendly but little kids may need help to go all the way. Even if you don’t go all the way, it is fun to bring family there. I was told every season this hike is different. Probably not in mid summer where it can get really hot (unless hiking in the early morning). Can’t wait to return back again.

The trails are well marked and the new footpaths take you off the bike path. Thank you Draper for improving the trails. We followed the new marker

Hidden Falls is a very short walk about 2 minutes to the left of the main trail. The waterfall is only trickle this time if year.

The hike is steadily uphill. A nice workout. This would make a quick out and back outdoor adventure for after work. You can easily miss the little side cut off for this trail. A little ways below the lookout area there is a nice rock platform area for meditation, journaling or Yogo. Happy Trails!

Great hike, Near town, moderate to difficult at times, NOT horse friendly or Mountain Bike friendly. Dogs on leashes allowed please pick up after your dog, Many families enjoy this hike, some scrambling at times over rocks with some steep side hills. I see kids of all ages just go slow. Single narrow trail, most of the time, Views are best at the mouth of the canyon to over look the city.. You are north of the Gun Range, And If you are on the freeway and you see the big V on the mountain This canyon is the first one north of the V. It is the Deuel creek south hike. (No pictographs on this hike it is another hike). At the little Kiosk it shows the trail ending long before the rope swing or the first waterfall past the rope swing. You will see some beautiful places most people think the waterfall is a rock or steep spot where the water shoots down a steep rocky spot. It is beautiful and worth a look. However it is not the waterfall. The water cascades down the side of the rock and it disappears in the thick brush. Not technically free falling, but it is nice all the same. Summer is my favorite late May to Sep, It is steep in places and requires some scrambling over rocks and steep drop offs. Those steep places with narrow trail start about 20 feet past the trail head. Dont let the kids get out of sight at the start of the trail. If you have little kids just go slow and you will find places near the creek to let them play. You will see poison ivy so know what to look for and how to identify it over 4 season. Google it. Both trails will meet up at the creek so if you parked at the North Trail head make sure that when you head down to take the North trail. Same as the South stay on the trail that is near the creek. You dont want to add a mile up and down at the end of a long hike. You will only make this mistake once :) I HIGHLY recommend a high clearance vehicle on both trail heads once you leave the pavement, mufflers are expensive. Some times the grader has gone over the trail and it is ok other times I have seen people that where not so lucky. When the road Ts in the bottom of the canyon take the road to the right and then at the second T turn back towards the canyon heading back north about a 1/2 mile from the first T. This trail is forest serve land and all the same rules apply. The only true water fall is past the rope swing. Kids do not make it this far. This is where the nice trail begins. The trail and will start to look like a high alpine hike with tall pines and less Gamble oak. If you continue about another 30-40 minutes past the rope swing you will be rewarded with a view of the waterfall that you will see in the distance it is the one in the pic that says Centerville Canyon. If you continue to hike up the trail it will go right by the waterfall where you can walk out and look down over the falls. It is just a little stream at this time of the year not much water at all. You will not see may people that will venture past the falls. It is quiet and if you are aware of your surroundings you will see all kinds of tracks and sign. If you continue up the trail it will eventually cross over two other streams and the canyon will end when the trail disappears in a Forrest. This trail has several other wooden bridges that are not forest service approved and are not sponsored by the city. It appears to be maintained by locals who do so at their own expense. We are always looking for volunteers who want to help contribute to the health and safety of the trail. And we recommend you do that thru the city who will coordinate the work thru the forest service and the sponsored third party groups. This is Forest Service land and when venturing out please be aware that hunting season is open at this time of the year I would recommend bright colored clothes. And to stay on the trail. You can also camp just off the trail and you will find a variety of camps spots.

Enjoy and let us know what you think and what you liked about our hike.

Take a hike.

HELP #### We have a lost hiker near this trail if you can get out tomorrow please do! Davis County Sheriff will be conducting a searchS tomorrow for a missing HUNTER r who was last seen just one canyon north at noon yesterday. He is a 19 year old male and was last seen about Noon near Parish flat Just one canyon north of Deuel creek

This hike is always a fun short hike to do! It gets you out of the house and gets some cardio in with the incline. Plus at the end you can see over the Ogden valley and not to mention the waterfall! The best time to go is once the snow is melting because the rub off makes the waterfall huge! It’s beautiful! You’ll enjoy it for sure!

Even in the fall there is actually an impressive waterfall at the end of the trail. Definitely a hiking trail. The last half is shaded. Great trail over a lunch break or just after work.

Too many people are leaving their dog shit in small plastic bags along the trail. Come on people! Do you think that the city hires someone to cleanup after you and your k9?

What an amazing hike! We had a late start and set up camp the fist night at about 5pm. We found a great area at about 300ft from the trail. on day two we reached Lower Red Lake. it was beautil. we set up camp the second night just by the lake at about 400ft from the trail. After we had fallen asleep, we woke up to a bear circling our tent, ended up leaving maybe after half hour. Talking about being scared!! we had our food on a bear proof container and inside a smell prood bag away from the tent. the scenary on this trail is breathtaking. the switchbacks are long so it makes the elevation gain easy. the hike was overall challenging for us (we come from.florida). def will do it again.

This hike is rated as moderate, but it was very easy. There is hardly any elevation gain and the switchbacks are long making what little you have to gain a breeze. Plenty of water along the trail to filter, or for your dog to drink. As noted by the previous review, lower red castle lake is picturesque but definitely not pristine. We camped in the site with the heart shaped rock. It was nice until we noticed all the human waste that was not properly buried. We had set up our tent not realizing till the next morning how close it was to utter grossness. Leave no trace is important. If your not sure what this requires look it up and please respect our wilderness.
