Great for family home evening. Also, more adventurous guests can repel there. Bravo nature! Bravo!

The meadow was a great spot for a lunch break! Beautiful views.
If you're bringing Fido, there are a lot of dogs off-leash here.

Hiked on April 21, 2018. The trail was completely clear of snow minus a 20 ft section. There are stunning views of the valley and mountains. At the very top there is a huge meadow that has the best mountain views of the hike. Many waterfalls throughout the hike!

Went all the way to the summit...about 1.5 feet of snow at the top...it slowed me down a decent bit but it was still doable with out an extra gear...just keep that in mind. Again, I’d like to reiterate that the second half of the trail is soooo much better than the first half...it’s got a whole different energy to it.

Great view

Just got back from doing this hike and it was gorgeous with fantastic weather,60’s. We took the Sundance trail which is a little more steep than the regular trail. It’s about 3.6 miles all together. Definitely going back in the summer

Curley Springs is meant to be a loop trail that can start at either Battle Creek Canyon or Dry Canyon in Lindon and make a loop upper then back on the foothill trails. My goal was to take my external GPS and track it for All Trails so they could revise this trail and show it as the loop it was meant to be. Not sure what happened but even though I downloaded the map and had lots of satellites connecint my phone to GPS, as soon as I made it up from Balltlecreek canyon to connect with the trail my dot locked up, and I got lost coming down. a little frustrating that Google maps worked better than this. Anyway here are my pics and cons of making the loop like I did.
Pros: I liked the variety of scenery. In Battle Creek Canyon you get to walk along and cross the river and see the Gorgeous waterfall. Then you head up in the hills and it is lots of growth. I was kinda glad I was doing this trail so early in the Spring for the trail might have been harder to keep track of with more growth (but then maybe it will also get more traffic?). There was a few times I wondered.if I should turn back because the trail was a little tricky, but your just walking along the Ridgeline for much of the time so if you stay close to it you should be close to the trail. Surprisingly when I got to the top where the All trails ends is the easiest section. (If you are trying to find this trail from the Lindon side take the right fork close.to.the end and the watch for another right fork. That is where I entered the trail. ). This was a beautiful section with amazing views of the valley. I thought this section would be the easiest, but there are so many different trails going so.many different ways that I ended up so far off from my Target. It would have been fine if my All trails would have worked, but ...

I love this hike!

Enjoy this hike every time! Kids love it and so does the dog. Nice to have a trail both can go on.

It's awesome and very beautiful!

My favorite trail. It’s like constant step ups. Wear hiking boots though.

Great hike, the main waterfall is about 100 yds past the bridge and at that point feel that it goes from easy to moderate. The falls are beautiful! Rest of the hike up to the end of the red trail marker it moderate. Seeing all the smaller falls makes it worth it. Plan or doing the big loop here and hitting the peak, won’t be till next month but we may even camp.

Easy hike. Google Maps also has a marker for where the trailhead actually begins; we missed the real trailhead the first time we trekked the falls and ended up scrambling up the slickrock at the base of the falls, which I wouldn't personally recommend because there aren't many stable footholds. The actual trail is well-maintained and mostly a steady incline to the base of Bridal Veil Falls.

Pretty but the end of the trail is kind of a let down visually. Overall a good hike, but i wouldn’t do it again

Kelly were you there just 3 days ago?. I'm taking some scouts there and would like to know if I need to provide them with snow shoes. What is the status of the trail?

Trail is clear and wide at the beginning. Nice hike and no snow.

This trail was really easy with gorgeous scenery. It started to get steep going down toward the falls. We ended up taking the trail to Sundance so we didn't have to go back up the steep rocky hill. I had my mother with me and she was done at the waterfall so it was a blessing we met a couple who had came up the Sundance trail and they offered to take us to our car. The trail from Sundance is only about a mile and a half one way but I felt it was more difficult going towards the falls than the Stewart Falls trail. The falls was gorgeous with ice and water. Dogs are allowed off leash and my dog had a wonderful time as well.

One of my all time favorite hikes in Utah valley. Be careful at the fork because it is very easy to miss.

wide range of things to see. so much fun and by far one of my favorite hikes I've done. I did the glacier and back down the other side so it was a bit longer but absolutely incredible.

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

Hard but fun!

Great hike. Went up today, it was over 60 degrees, so there was a lot of mud/slush..Was easier to walk off the trail in either deeper snow or dry leaves much of the time...As has been mentioned, stay to the left. After the 5th bridge I would say the fork comes up in 150 meters or so..The views are incredible from the top. Just wow. Saw deer when I entered the meadow area before the last turn up the last hill..A lot of snow in the upper part, but packed down nicely. Highly recommend poles especially for the descent..it was slippery and wet...and totally worth it..didn't see one person up or down after taking a left at the fork... going down required some balance and using the poles a lot as there is deep mud and slush in many parts...and yet I'd do it again..btw, my phone showed about 8 miles..took about 3.75 hours..

beautiful view! and great workout especially with the snow.

Hard with new snow. Only one person on trail to summit (Sunday). Snowshoes necessary past Y fork.

Catching up on some reviews, so recognize that this was done mid-December. Seriously such a cool hike. We were the first ones to go up after a small snow fall, so fresh tracks all the way up, although it was a little slippery at parts. Falls were half frozen, which was also neat. Not sure about the traffic or conditions during summer, but this was a great early winter trek.
