Very pleasant hike! The slope is pretty gentle all the way to Elehpant Rock. There was quite a bit of fresh now on the ground on 3-18 but the trail was easy without the need for microspikes.

I snowshoe and hike this trail all year long...it’s usually pretty crowded and sometimes tough for mountain bikes to squeeze past the hikers. That said, I love the location, the ease of parking and getting right on the trail and the scenery. Elephant Rock isn’t the best reward after a long hike but it’s a great workout.

Great hike all around! Definitely need good boots as the trail was completely covered in snow and it is a decent incline. Beautiful wooded landscape throughout and lightly trafficked. Close to Park City but you feel like you’re more remote!

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

There's a lot of snow still there and it gets slippery coming back down. But I personally didn't mind. It made more for the adventure!

Really quick hike. Starts through a neighborhood then works up to some stairs and a short climb. Right now you definitely need books if not spikes as there are some iced out steep runs. Good payoff for such a short, accessible spot.

Starts off going through a neighborhood. Went yesterday and it’s still covered in snow and slippery. The hike seemed very short though due to the rapid change of scenery. Kids lived it. Toddler did struggle with snow though.

If you want to enjoy the sunset in a quiet place, you have to try it.

Short but steep. Beautiful view.

Great views of the city!

I'm sure it's great when there is no snow. There is currently tons of slippery ice and snow! We did it but it was sketchy!

Great city view, try it night time...

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.

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.

Good short hike! Only took me around 35 minutes and I’m a beginner. A little steep on the way up but worth the view!

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

Not exactly a hiking trail, but it’s a very nice area to walk around with your dog

Fun little hike. Steep, but short. Cool history behind it and nice view of the city!

Great trail for a quick hike. Beautiful view of the Salt Lake Valley!

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.

Good short warm up for the hiking season

Nice and easy for the whole family. Not much water flowing and a bit of ice on the creek. The trail is clear but watch your footing on the way back down.

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

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

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.

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.

Just went on this hike. It was good. Short. Beautiful icicles and running water. Wear good shoes that can cut the snow my buddy wore tennis shoes and slid around, I wore water proof hiking boots and walked like a pro.

Muddy muddy. Short, but rewarding.

beautiful! its a little tedious but definitely worth the visit

Nice easy hike with some scenic views.
