Nice short hike to the falls. Trail is shadded well and not super rocky but it gets over crowded real quick, so go early to avoid the crowd and to have the falls all to your self.

a fun and easy trail

Short and easy hike. The only tough part was climbing the rocks to get a better view of the falls at the top. Saw a moose (!!!!) and tons of chipmunks along the way. I went on a Sunday around 11am and it was pretty crowded, but there were still plenty of parking spots on big cottonwood canyon road. From there I walked the .75ish miles on the paved road (FR019) to the trailhead.

We started our hike at 8:15 this morning and didn't see many people. Tip: you can park at the trailhead though this app directs you to park along the Big Cottonwood Canyon road. If you go early there will be spaces; otherwise walk a mile to the trailhead. Bold ground squirrels were entertaining.

If you go soon after this is posted, BEWARE and read on.
Great hike, especially for kids. One problem. We went yesterday, hiked up to the pond. We walked around the pond, which it seems like few do. The little trail is somewhat overgrown. We stumbled onto a ground nest of hornets right in the middle of the trail and they swarmed. Whole family got stung several times. As you walk up to the pond, the nest is along the right side (west). If you stay on the other side, I'm sure you'll be fine. It wasn't until we walked right up on it that we had trouble. They chased us for several hundred yards back down the trail. We passed a couple that was heading up, told them about it and they decided to go up anyway and got stung as well. Otherwise, this was a great hike — perfect for young children. Not too far, not too strenuous. Just right. That being said, I don't think I'll be able to get the kids to come back to it. Good story for them to tell though. Builds character.

nice short hike

very beautiful and very well trafficked.

great all around hike not to difficult unless you want to climb up to get a closer look at the falls.

Fun & easy hike. We parked near the main road & had to walk in on the paved road, but it was still fairly easy. You can try driving all the way to the trailhead to see if you can get a parking spot - be careful not to park in a marked spot that says no parking at any time or you’ll be ticketed (even on Sundays)
My two year old hiked all the way in with the exception of a couple rocky spots. Come willing to get a little wet & you’ll have a good time.
We hiked up to the top where you can see the actual “donut fall”. Brings lots of water & maybe even some snacks.

Good views of the city. No shade after the first climb.

Great for kids and the whole fam.

Muy bueno para empezar senderismo

Great trail for kids. The last little way up to the actual falls is a bit of a scramble but a fun challenge for the kids. We even ran into a few moose on the trails.

I love this hike. Be prepared to wait in certain areas because it’s always busy and with lots of little children. It’s great to see their happy faces but it can be dangerous. Always keep an eye on your children.

Thanks our first nature hike in Utah. It was great for the kids. Some river crossings and pretty forest to walk through. The last part after the bridge was a little tough for our 3 year old (some boulders to climb up and down), so we skipped the actual falls and just played in the water by the bridge.

I've been hiking this trail for years and i love it.

Beautiful hike for the family. No restrooms but there is a nice pond at the picnic area. Only a couple miles away from the Snowbasin Resort!

My favorite so far! Very nice!

Nice easy hike for the grandchildren (and for me). Recommend avoiding weekend if possible, very crowded and parking was a mess. Otherwise a delightful hike.

The trail is well marked easy hike however beware of the wasps that hang out by the pond!!

Fairly gentle hike with a fantastic reward awaiting at the end. Beautiful small waterfall. Very nice hike. Perfect late day trip.

This trail is much tougher than some of these reviews would have you believe. Check the elevation charts and you'll see what I mean. It's also the only time I've backpacked in the High Uintas and had to deal with multiple large groups of campers. That said, there is a reason it's so popular and busy. The mountains, lakes, and meadows are absolutely stunning. I prefer solitude, so I'm not sure if I'd go again, but it's a beauty for sure.

Fun easy hike. Get there early for parking and nice weather! 10/10 would go again. Went w/ a 9 year old and he loved it.

We went yesterday morning and got to the trailhead around 8:45am, got great parking, and enjoyed the 65 degree weather. It was gorgeous and the kids all did it easy-peasy! Scrambling up the rocks to the waterfall and stepping into the cave where the water falls through the “donut” hole has to be one of my favorite hiking moments. That’s why we have to do this one at least once a year. As we were hiking down, HOARDS of people were hiking up. Families, school groups, foreigners...everybody’s up for this flavor of donut.

First hike and really enjoyed it! Some inclines and declines! Good for beginners and small children.

We took my 2 year old, she was able to complete the whole trail herself. Very pretty, with lots of shade. We started the trail around 9:00am. It was very crowded on the way back, about 10:30am.

I love coming to Millcreek canyon. It is so beautiful. I've done this trail a few times. Great for trail running but it is novice so it gets busy. lots of mountain bikers on this trail.

Great family friendly hike. If your willing to get your feet wet and climb some rocks to see the waterfall then it is totally worth it. My wife, myself, and my son (1) had a blast visiting this hike.

The hike was perfect for my kids and me. The only disappointment, which was huge, is the disgusting bathrooms. Absolutely horrendous.
