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.

Such a beautiful hike. Nice inclines.

It’s a quick jaunt. Still a little muddy and slick in some places.

Pretty steep trail and very muddy which made it slippery.

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

Short but steep. Beautiful view.

One of the most beautiful hikes I've done. Nicely snowpacked for the majority of the trail, just used microspikes and carried snowshoes which were helpful for the top near the lake and walking around the lake which was frozen and snow covered. Completed 3/11/18.

Great views of the city!

We really enjoyed this hike! Brought our little guy along:)

Great city view, try it night time...

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

Pretty easy. Awesome that they would build such a fancy bridge for the BST

Still muddy. Gorgeous view. I expected natural rock formations as the furniture but it’s stacks of rocks in the form of chairs. A bit steep. Definitely a moderate trail.

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.

trail is dry now. 2.14.18

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

Took my 5y/o, 3 y/o and packed my 1 y/o on my back and they all LOVED it! Incredible views, really cool rocks (which is important when you’re a kid), and the perfect distance for kiddos. We will DEFINITELY do this one again!

So good! Awesome view and “seating” at the “living room”!!!

The sweetest biking trail. Loved the suspension bridge. Beautifl area for seeing nature as you ride, walk or run.

Great morning hike. Somewhat muddy and slick this time of year.

My wife, two small kids (6 and 8), and i hiked this during one of the warmest winters in history and there was still a lot of ice. Not a very hard trail but you will need something to deal with the very slick conditions. Plenty of photo opportunities, gorgeous views, but come prepared.

Plenty of spider trails, choose wisely!

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

This Hike is my most favorite hike all year.  They river is amazing in the spring.  It is about 30 feet across, and it winds and turns along the trail, and creates gorgeous scenery.  The Horse tail falls are breathtaking and so incredible, but I think they are probably missed by many that come up.   It is called dry creek, so I am worried what happens to this river later on in the year.  I have a feeling that it is pretty seasonal, and when the snow finishes melting, then the river becomes less dramatic.
   To get to the hike, take the Alpine exit.  Travel East on Timpanogos Hwy to 5300 W (Alpine Hwy).  Turn East (right) on 200 N to 200 E and turn North (left) on 200 E. When the road forks take Grove Dr. Turn right on Box Elder Drive. 
We took the main left trail down to the river. The river is wide and so windy that it was gorgeous to watch. We walked along the river for 5-10 minutes, and then found a a few logs to cross the river. Do not cross the river if this is slippery or not safe. The trail on the right side of the river also goes up to the falls, and gets closer to first waterfall then the trail on the north of the river. The trail is narrow and is very windy, but has enormous charm because of the moisture of the air, and the area being so lush and beautiful. There are many pines, oaks, and wild flowers. The trail is almost soft at times from all the pine needles. There were times when the trails was a little steep, but there always seemed to be something close to grab to help from sliding. There was only one spot of the trail that I thought was a little dangerous. The trail headed down at a steep angle right towards a cliff into the river, but you can grab lots of things and take it slow to make sure you stay safe. I'm sure the trail will soon detour away from this area. It took us about an hour and a half to make it to the waterfalls. It was on the right side of river falling off the cliff. We were so excited that we made it to the waterfall, that we almost stopped. My husband had viewed this area from google earth, and he wanted to make sure there was not more, and just up a little further is the most amazing waterfall. It reminded me of the beautiful Oregon Waterfalls. I fell in love with it a little more for it has the same characteristics as the windy trail, and the windy river, for the waterfall falls forever while it twists and turns. This is an absolutely stunning falls. I can't wait to go back.
The hike on the north side is difficult, but amazing. It does get tricky and dangerous with 2 things on the north side of the river. First, getting close to the falls feels dangerous no matter how I go down. People have died here, so be careful. Second, one of the times I went up here, we lost the trail for a good 15 minutes. We just couldn't find the Carin to get back on the trail to head back. We finally spotted it hidden in the back of a little clearing with a fire pit in the center. Just pay attention to the Carins if you brave the north side.
The hike is approximately 3 hours round trip. 

As a beginner I had to pause a lot but it was well worth it in the end. Bridge is a bit wobbly but it wasn't scary.
