Scenic hike. Our trip was cut short by a moose in the middle of the path. There are still some patches of snow that you’ll have to go over, but nothing deep.

Great trail!

Such a beautiful hike with awesome stops to check out along the way (make sure to grab an info map at the register box at the trailhead!) Also, very conveniently, there is a water fountain at the trailhead to fill up water bottles and camelbacks. The waterfall was still a bit too cold to get in but great to cool off your feet before heading back. Very much worth the drive and hike!

Very easy short jaunt with lots to explore. Follow the river - check our our vlog of our experience: https://youtu.be/87H0n_bKshU

We really enjoyed this hike. Easy to follow trail and easy to medium hike. Part of the trail was shaded but mostly exposed to the elements. As you approach the waterfall you can catch a glimpse of it from a distance, it’s a beautiful contrast from the desert landscape to an oasis where the waterfall sat. Once you get there, it is much cooler in temperature and lots of trees to sit under and have a picnic as you enjoy the view of the waterfall. The water was very very cold, but it was still fun trying to see how long you can stand in it the pool of water. Go early because this is a busy hike and lots of people visit it during this time of the year (spring break). When we got to the waterfall it was just us and two other couples and then after ten minutes we were surrounded by five to six families with 3-5 kids each. So the tranquility of it went away fast, LOL Regardless, it was it was a great hike. Enjoy!

loved it! easy trail with amazing views of the canyon.

We just went (April 1) and it was still very snowy and we made it to the top but was very difficult at the top peak to see the fall. When we got up it was all frozen and there was only a little cave that you could see water falling thru if you got down low enough. I would highly recommend to wait til later in the year!

This is an excellent, easy hike with kids. We began the hike at 1000 and got back at about 1430. The trail was easy to follow, very sandy in certain areas, and there were unique features to see along the way, such as pictographs and Fremont Indian granaries hidden amongst the cliffs. We spent about an hour at the falls, eating lunch and playing in the water. It was too cold to swim in, however the mist from the falls felt great and cooled us down from the hike. It was Easter Weekend, which made it pretty crowded...I do wish we could have gotten started a little earlier in the morning to avoid all the people.

Nice easy hike. Mostly uphill obviously. if you head East and get bored 2 hrs in like me you can just shortcut back down the side of the mountain, if you're at least 1/4 mountain goat.

Nice trail. Waterfall was great. Boyfriend jumped in for a dip and said it was still fairly cold. Did this at around a 20 minute/mile hiking pace.

We hiked this trail on a Saturday in March and it was busy, but the scenery is beautiful. Watch for trout in the creek, beaver dams, and petroglyphs (trail markers 7 and 8) before you reach the falls.

Great Hike, winds a lot! Terrain changes! Great views! LOTS of sand! If wet, plan on MUD! Dry plan on dust! Seems long but worth it when u get to the falls! Plan on staying at falls for awhile in summer-swim!

A beautiful and magical hike when there's several feet of snow and even more falling. Nothing too strenuous, but it's not noted that you have to park right of the highway and hike roughly an additional .5 mile to get to the trailhead. The snow was hard packed enough that hiking boots were sufficient, though many people had snowshoes. The little climb to get to the cave where the falls are was a bit slick without any kind of spikes, but still doable.

We went about an hour and a half before sunset, and we had the falls all to ourselves when we got there. Long, but easy hike there and back. It got dark on our way back, and the view of the stars was spectacular. Not a light to be seen but the moon and stars. Would love to go back someday and camp. Beautiful sites right along the creek.

Since there is no parking at the trailhead, I dropped the kids (15, 11, 9, 7) off there and let them get a head start. I parked about 3/4 of a mile away and hoofed it up there and met them up the trail a little ways. The trail had nicely packed snow and we were fine in our hiking shoes and snow boots. I love the contrast of white snow with the red bark twigs. This little hike followed a pretty creek and had some easy ups and downs. We stopped at the stone marker for Killyon’s Canyon since the trail beyond was really muddy. Great little hike!

The trail is hard packed all the way to the falls. Spikes come in handy for the final accent. Really cool icicles on the falls right now.

Fun, easy hike. Hardest part for me the sandy areas but still very easy. Pretty view at the end!

Great winter walk. We started out with snowshoes and after several yards we decided the trail was packed well enough to go without.

took my pups up during a storm, beautiful views, trail easily disappears during thr winter so its easy to get turned around in the evening hours but still a great hike.

I love this little trail. Very underrated. I usually don’t see anyone else on it. Views of Little dell and the wasatch. Watch out for moose though.

Great hike, awesome views and landscapes, great exercise. The hike wasn’t to bad, only five miles up and down, we really didn’t have any problem getting up there, except for exhaustion.
Anyway, great hike loved it!

it's really windy don't wear baseball caps. took my two chihuahuas they did surprisingly well. great for most age groups. easy to spend 2 hours without realizing it so make sure you bring water.

Beautiful covered in snow. Easy hike with spikes on (lots of ice). A bit windy too.

Awesome short hike. Beautiful scenery most everywhere. I hiked from the Spruces Campground for an extra long walk through the quiet forest. The last stretch is treacherous during an icy winter; bring boot spikes. Big difference during the winter? Hardly ANY traffic, especially early in the mornings.

A good short hike that ends with a beautiful view in multiple directions. Be prepared to walk a ways up a snowy road to the trailhead if you go during the winter time.

This hiking trail, near Salt Lake City, has historical significance as far as the settling of the Salt Lake Valley and the Mormon Pioneer Trail is concerned. This was actually not one of my favorite trails, but may be more scenic in better weather or in the summertime. Video of trail experience: https://youtu.be/0HgYstKvNcc

Great trail. Some icy spots. Beautiful waterfall in a cave at the end.

Easy hike with just snow boots. If you want to go all the way up to the waterfall, spikes would be a good idea. Went on a Sunday afternoon and it was not crowded at all. Very pretty and scenic.
