hiked it with a bunch of teenagers. A great trail to take beginners and those who normally struggle with hiking

My husband and I and Scout dog completed this hike on October 13.

The trailhead is easy to find, but I with the trail was better marked because there are some places to turn off. We used to app to double-check where we were several times.

The trail was pleasant, part pavement part dirt, with some undulating hills. Part of the trail is an off-leash dog area, and we enjoyed seeing all the doggos enjoying their Saturday morning. There's also a stream for them to play in.

Another warning.... THERE IS POISON OAK ON THIS TRAIL. My husband and I took a little detour to check out an old bridge. On this side trail, I also peed, and chose the *WRONG* leaves to wipe with. Multiple sleepless nights and trips to urgent care later... I am writing this as a warning so nobody makes the same dumb mistake I did!

Snow, ice, and mud, but a great hike! Somehow I didn't make it to the falls, the trail just ended at the river. I'll go back in the summer and see where I went wrong. The road is closed so you have to hike in from the main road.

Great easy hike for anyone, especially for the kids.There was snow and ice on most of the trail this morning. Make sure to take gloves that’s something I was regretting not having with me.

Quick short trail, heavily trafficked.

i went sunday. the alternate route is from sheeps creek road. about 10-15 miles past diamond fork. once you make the left on sheeps creek road, another 11 miles of windy road. trailhead is on the left. you can see my recording to get an idea of where you start. hope this helps

Super easy, super crowded. Snow shoe this one. It’s not bad though. Falls are pretty cool.

The problem with Donut Falls and the reason for my 2 Star Rating is because it was as crowded as when you go to Disney Land waiting on your favorite ride on a Saturday and admission to Disney Land is Free for the first time ever......

Although I am exaggerating Donuts Falls was way too crowded for my tastes!

My friends and I hiked this trail. We couldn’t find the mine but we made it to the top. The last part of the trail was very steep and muddy. The trailhead is marked by a sign addressing hunters. It says it’s an archery only area. There were quite a few hunters, which we didn’t like but there’s nothing to do about that. The views on the trail were amazing especially with the fall color change.

Steven-how do you get to the alternate trail??

Not my cup of tea. Flat. too crowded. Short walk. Good walk w/ younger kids.

Called the ranger station and diamond fork was still closed, she didn’t know when they would reopen it. So I went and used the alternate trail. Very steep and strenuous compared to the normal trail, but still did it in about an hour each way. Had the whole place to myself, but water levels are low in all the pools, and the river was nice and muddy today. I posted pictures too in case anybody wants to see.

The road was closed as of a couple days ago due to fire related things. If you must know, call the Spanish fork ranger station and inquire if the diamond fork road is open again yet or not.

So the ‘trail’ is closed? Or the gate for the road is closed? I’ve hiked to it when the gate was closed.

Those anyone know if the trail is open now?

Trail is still closed as of Oct. 1st due to the fires. I'm not sure how to find updates. The fire wasn't listed on the map.

Easy walk to beautiful hot springs. Not crowded when we went early in the morning. The trail is mostly flat and very well maintained. The hot springs are just as colorful as they look in the pictures. Many are too hot to swim in so be careful. Definitely going back.

FYI trail currently CLOSED related to fire.
I only gave 5 star so it wouldn’t drop the rating.
Plan to come back another time

This was a really great hike with great views, but there are no bathrooms!! There's also a park just a little ways south of the trailhead, and there are no bathrooms there either.

I enjoyed this shirt easy hike. I have not hiked for a long time and needed a starter hike like this one. The aspens were beautiful.

Super easy hike, we went off trail which made it a little harder. Beautiful view and nice workout for beginners

Underrated trail very close to SLC. The views are gorgeous, and in the fall the colors are amazing on the second half of the trail.

Great views at the top of the hike. Loose rocks make the walk down a little dangerous.

I did the entire 18+ mile round-trip today from the trailhead close to the reservoir to Mormon Flats. The weather was great, a little cool early but that's better than too hot. I saw several deer and three of them bounded across the trail about 20 feet in front of me. If one of those animals hits you you're in trouble. The trail is very rocky but well marked and well traveled, there is no way you'll get lost. As for Alltrail's directions to the trailhead, you're on your own. It costs to park at the reservoir trailhead at the day-use area, but Alltrail doesn't mention that or where the day-use area for the reservoir is located or how to get to it. If all else fails just drive Highway 65 and look for the parking lot and fee booth above the reservoir. If you want a slightly shorter hike, drive on and look for trailhead markers along the highway. Eventually you'll see one for the Mormon Pioneer trail. The elevation gain of 3000 feet is well distributed over the length of the trail so it's manageable. I went all the way to Mormon Flats and tried to imagine what it was like to have been camped there in 1847. Why are there no markers for Fort Wells? As for bikers, several passed me in either direction and only one yielded to me. The rest slowed but made it plain by their actions that I was going to get hit if I didn't get out of the way. If you're a biker, please obey the rules.

A casual walk more than a hike. The view is scenic and worth the walk to the top.

In spite of being along the main road a lot of the time, this was a pretty and enjoyable trail! Lots of shade and some sun. Gets really good toward the highest point/furthest in. The river of beautiful and there are a lot of huge rocks. Also, plenty side trails too. The trail continues at the end of this trail, after the bad ass remains of a building, but I didn’t try it...yet!

Super fun trail! Nice waterfall at the end.

Nice little walk with a very cool waterfall and rock formation.
