Great hike! did it by myself on a weekday and there;s nobody around. one star less because the central part that parallel with the bike trail is kinda boring. Very accessible slot canyon and so much diversity of rocks!

wide range of things to see. so much fun and by far one of my favorite hikes I've done. I did the glacier and back down the other side so it was a bit longer but absolutely incredible.

This falls is a great family hike, and the kids love to stand under the 50 foot falls and get wet. It is also a favorite for those learning how to rappel. There is often people at the top repelling down the side of the waterfall. To get to the falls, you take the Pleasant Grove Utah exit 275. Turn east, and follow the road up to 100 E in Pleasant Grove. Turn right to 200 S, then turn left (east). Follow the road all the way to the top where there is a parking lot, and the trail head. The hike starts kinda dry and hot, but it as soon as you get up to where the water is not piped in, it gets greener and cooler. It is only about 1 mile up to the falls, and there is is cool and a delightful area to explore. If you have more time, you can hike past the falls, and right off the bat you will see 2 more pretty waterfalls. The hike above is steeper but if you go up about another mile there is a spot where the river gets wide, Rocky and very shallow. There is a sign here and there is a trail that heads over to Dry Creek Canyon. If you go from here up about another half mile it gets a little steeper and narrow, but you end up coming to a T in the trail. The right side heads to Baldy or connects also with Dry Canyon. The left side gets up to a dirt road that you can drive all the way out to American Fork Canyon. I usually walk the road for just a little while and then head off on a small trail through the meadow that heads down Grove Creek Canyon, and right by Indian Springs. This canyon was named because a tribe of Indians used to live up in this meadow. Some squirmish happened with the Indians and the Pioneer settlers and there really was a battle between the two that happened at the base of Battle Creek Canyons. A beautiful canyon with spectacular cliffs, beautiful waterfalls, and a bonus that you are very close to the river almost the whole hike. Here is a 360 stitch of the hike up until the turn off towards Dry Canyon. http://shaunasadventures.blogspot.com/2018/02/360-adventure-battle-creek-canyon.html?m=1

We loved this trail! Nice, easy hike! Great for a little weekend getaway!!

Starter early and had the trail to ourselves as usual. Broke trail in fresh snow all morning until we turned around at about 2.8 miles. The snow depth was anywhere from 4 inch to mid thigh deep in the drifts. It was amazing. Views are incredible. Fresh power, solitude, red sunrise to start the day and great company. It doesn't get any better than this

Catching up on some reviews, so note that I did this in early September. I know many people start around 2am to get to the summit at sunrise, but I just wasn't done for that this go around. Started the trail around 7am and got back to the car around 2pm. Lots of people going both directions. The log at the top was already filled with 200 names, just from that day!! Saw a mother moose and her two babies, as well as a mountain goat. Beautifil wildflowers filled the fields. Great time with some good friends--would definitely recommend doing this one.

Fun, easy, and scenic! A must for families. The waterfall is beautiful and weather was great! Didn’t go past the falls but was fun. Did a Vlog of it on you tube if you want to see it. “Daydreamer” is the channel “Hiking to Battle Creek falls” is the title.

One of the best hikes I have ever been on. We didn’t make it past the deep water. However, we will definitely be going back.

I loved this trail up to the saddle. I must have done it on the busiest weekend of the year so it was a little treacherous actually summiting due to mostly a lot of boys jostling, and the summit itself was very chaotic with lots of people on it. But the part up to that was pretty mellow and had such spectacular views of the wasatch and was lush with flowers. When I do this again, I’ll just go up the the big meadow on the timpooneke side or the emerald lake, once on the summit was enough for me.

went up to the camp ground last summer. I'm pudgy and slow, but I enjoyed it very much! wear tall boots, saw a couple of rattlesnakes closer to the camp ground.

The butterflies in the summer are unbelievable. My daughters like us to take a picnic and rest by the beautiful little stream. One of my favorite family-friendly hikes!

It’s a good hike to go on with friends and family!

I hike this every summer. Top 10 most scenic trails in Utah.

Nice up and back, a little bit of a challenge around the falls and above. The trail is clear of snow and ice. Nice scenery with a the pleasant sound of the flowing creek.

Beautiful in the snow! Will bring the kids next time, the dog loved it.

Perfect for a long run/bike ride, beautiful views if you start near the canyon where 189 meets 800 N (there is parking and a trail head here. Paved sidewalk the whole way with bike lanes and run/walk lane. Will definitely return. Not really a hiking trail.

This trail continues up for quite a ways past the bottom falls. Follows the river up. Good steep climb. I ended up turning around at 2 miles as I had to get back. I’ll go again and continue up further. Trail dry for the most part.

Did this Trail in October. The views are incredible. Each section offers more and more just insanely gorgeous scenery. This hike is steep and long. Be prepared.

Weather was perfect & the canyon was bone dry which was a nice surprise.

One of my faves!!

Great, quick hike. Steep and icy, but otherwise, beautiful.

GPS tracks this at 9 miles. Did this today (1-5-18) and it was jaw-dropping, incredible slot canyons and towering rock walls. weather was nice and beauty was overwhelming!! i can't recommend it more.

This is a pretty hike any time of year. Right now it's quite snowy/icy use some spikes

Nice little hike up to a cool (literally) waterfall. There was no snow on the trail, but there were some icy patches since there is quite a bit of shade on the trail. But the ice didn’t get in the way of our good time. The kids did great, and the icy waterfall was a nice reward.

It’s more of a road rather than a trail until you get above the falls. Super easy and suitable for kids.

Pretty icy, wouldn’t recommend doing it without cleats and maybe some sticks.

Fun, easy and a great hike for a quick morning walk.

Such a fun hike in the snow. I can't wait to rappel the waterfall. I would suggest spikes once you get to the first waterfall.
