easy trail for sunday afternoon, bring your dogs 3 waste bags stations, no reason to leave anything behind

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.

Easy hike. Lots of mud today but easy to navigate through. Dog friendly. Lots of places for the kids to explore. Only made it up about a mile and then turned back.

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 trail and great time of year to do it. Second time doing this trail, the first being mid summer last year, that was miserable. Went last weekend before the snowfall, still had drifts up to ~3 ft to go through near the top but wasn't too bad if you have waterproof boots. I prefer to start on the left and have the majority of the elevation gain at the beginning. Would recommend.

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.

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 really hike

Started the day Intending to hike the loop as described but didn't want to hike the roads where possible so instead of coming down the Yellow Fork Canyon Road we used the Big Rock trail to get back to the trailhead. Nice time of year to hike and avoid crowds

When you add the Big Rock Trail (single track), Yellow Fork Loop trail (double track) this becomes a nice loop

This is a really cool place. I wouldn’t have expected it to be up there behind just the neighborhood

A drive everyone should do once in their life for the view. Too many cars for hiking it. I started in Salt Lake, went to the top, then came down into Tooele.

This is a nice easy family hike. My 5 year old had no problem. Beware as we saw needles and other drug paraphernalia towards the beginning of the trail head, but afterwards it was all natural beauty. The suspension bridge was awesome and overall it was a enjoyable experience.

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.

Went today to burn off calories and take ... was really nice. it's close to home and almost nobody there. love the peace there. today's trail was packed down for the first mile and a half. farther on it there was only inches of fluff to walk through. overall a beautiful serene hike! :) dog friendly area

Went last Sunday. Not a soul in sight. Kind of funny how you walk between two house properties. One of which has 2 loud barking dogs that follow you up the trail but behind a fence. It was all ice and we took our 2 kids (ages 7 and 10). We managed just fine and slipped a little bit nothing too crazy. We went right up to the falls and were the only ones there! Will definitely do it again!

This trail is definitely a fire road with recent vehicle and OHV tracks (not sure how legal). It made for a nice quick morning hike with nothing too exciting. Still a good 180* view of the valley if you go past the end of the fire road. I basically went straight up the hill at the end of the fire road which made the trail much more tricky with a bit of snow. There is a bunch of housing development at the trailhead so who knows how much longer this trail will be available.

I love it!

Great views once you get to the top. Lots of horse traffic.

This is the second time I've hiked this trail. We started further north on the Bonneville shoreline trail. In the summer there was a lot of poison ivy near the falls, but cool weather took care of that and you can really see the falls. On a Tuesday morning there aren't many other people on this trail, just some nice deer.

This is a nice hike in the fall or spring when other trails might be covered in snow or ice. The views are pretty decent but it would be aggravating to do this hike on a polluted day in the valley. There are lots of side trails along the way and the bear canyon spur is quite pretty. This would be a miserable hike in the heat —there is very little shade. A great choice for trail running and mountain biking. Good for all ages. It’s pretty easy and you can go for as short or as long as you like.

Definitely not moderate but a very fun easy hike. The suspension bridge is worth it alone. Make sure right by the bridge you go on bear canyon loop, it takes you up a little higher where the stream is.

This was an easy but fun hike. I have never been on a suspension bridge and it was worth the hike to see it and cross it.

Not as enjoyable because you are constantly watching for mountain bikers and moving out of their way.

this was a mellow, somewhat steep hike. it's very short so anyone can do this one.

short but beautiful view if you make your way to go up higher!

We’ve enjoyed this hike many times. Great with kids.
