Great hike but very crowded and a lot of dogs (poop).

A beautiful trail that starts up with a wide open incline across ski hills. Then you get to the forested area and it’s beautiful plus you see 3 alpine lakes. Stop at Lake Martha to look for deer and moose hiding on the left side of the small lake. Lots of hikers but still opportunities to see marmots, squirrels, chippies and a few deer and moose.

Beautiful hike. Hardly saw anyone else on trail. A bit confusing when you get closer to the waterfall but we were able to find a nice shady spot near the water.

July 2018 - The trail is in two parts, there is the paved trail along the bottom caynon next to Provo River. Well maintained as part of the Provo river trail, many parking lots, and food trucks. The trail to go up the to the mid-point of the falls is pretty skech in places. Very narrow in many parts, and loose shale rock everywhere. There are a few places where the the trail has clearly been wiped out by rock slides and is a little puckering for the less then fleet of footed. There is also another option to get to the mid-point, climb the falls themselves, lots of loose shale rock, water, and steep.

Great hike. Many trails, easy to get off on a different path

Awesome hike with low traffic even late morning on a Sunday. The trail markings are awful though! You take Timanookee trail for about a mile and a half, cross a stream, and take a left at the fork right after. Shortly after that you will start climbing rocks that get steeper towards the top and then you are there! I took a 4.5 and 6 year old with me and I don’t think I’d do that again with those rocks. The falls are very small right now. Overall nice, pretty hike!

Hiked this in August with a healing ankle sprain. Fairly easy with beautiful views. Highly recommended.

Beautiful trail leading to beautiful falls! This is a good choice for kids and inexperienced hikers.

Great hike!

We took our 9 and 11 year old girls, they did just fine with a few stops for water; we hit the trail at noon in mid-August, it was dry and hot, but lots of sections of the trail had shade, which our kids liked.

amazing trail, moderately trafficked but not too bad, the landscape and veiws/forests are beautiful, no complaints!

Took our 2 year old on this hike and he made it about a quarter to a third of the way on his own before he got tired. Although that may have been because it was getting late. It was about 7 pm when we started the hike. Either way it was a great hike. Very fun and quick even with a two year old.

I loved this hike!! It was great for me and my boys!! It was a good length and a mix of flat and a little steep!

Just visited today, hike is pretty easy until the steep part right before the lake as others have mentioned. The GPS location I got from AllTrails kept trying to make us take a private road on someone's property so I recommend stopping at the parking lot at the top of Guardsman Pass. Out of the 6 of us who swam in the lake only 1 found a leech on them so enter at your own risk!

Falls are only a bit more than a trickle this time of year. Steeper hike than you'd think

LOVED this hike. Took about 2.5 hours round trip and it was so worth it.

This was a good hike! Not too steep not too difficult! Gorgeous views and we saw a moose right next to the trail.

So beautiful along the whole trail. Amazing flowers and plenty of shade. Easy for small kids.

This is an awesome trail for a quick hike.

Anyone giving this a bad review probably just has a bad attitude.

The falls are beautiful, and there are some great views.

Sunday afternoon was a great time to do this. I only ran into a few people.

Maybe a bit more moderate than easy going uphill, but it was a beautiful trail. The first Lake was so big and peaceful. Nice quiet trail but definitely more traffic on it by early afternoon.

Easy and short hike but it gets rocky and steep at the end. It was crowded and there were lots of dogs. I went there on a Sunday at 4:00pm. I saw some people swimming and fishing . Overall nice hike

beautiful hike all the way through and the prize at the end the waterfall perfect.

did this hike today. very steep in places very beautiful wooded hike with the sound of the river always near and the falls at the end was amazing. well worth the hike.

Great for kids and the whole fam.

I agree with Chris, this is more of a moderate trail. By the end my friend and I were very sore. The pain was well worth seeing the falls. Take lots of water!

Grandkids loved the hike, ages 2-14. Not too bad until the last ¼ mile, it was steep, rocky, switchbacks. Parking was tough on a Friday morning. Beautiful views. While the wildflowers are almost gone, there was still a few to enjoy. Trail is very dusty. We plan on doing this again next year closer to Mid-July.

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.

What happened to the rope swing

I’ve done his trail twice. It’s really good. Well trafficked so if you get hurt there’s someone close by to help. The downside is that it’s well trafficked so you’re never really alone. Ok the bright side, great cellphone coverage. At least on T-Mobile. I assume Verizon and AT&T’s coverage will be just as good.

It’s a fun trail. Do it in the morning. It gets hot in the summer afternoon.

Pretty short and easy hike until the last bit as it gets a little steep/rocky right before the lake (still doable for kids or beginners though). Went on a weekday around 2 pm and it wasn’t crowded at all. Great views, great for swimming, and dog friendly!
