easy hike, big payoff. trail is packed the whole way. spikes were all that was necessary.

The trail was traveled enough and the snow was so packed that we never used our snowshoes. Hiked a little past the Mud Springs Trail junction. Started just as it was getting light and watch the sunrise lite up the mountains behind us. The morning light made the mountains look incredable

This was an easier than moderate hike in my opinion, and an absolutely amazing winter destination.

Have done this trail hundreds of times to keep up my cardio for high altitude hikes. I usually hike it three times in a row (three laps).

Stunning day. Snow crampons were the ticket. Rainbows (Snowbows) around every corner. Falls were mostly frozen. Exquisitely beautiful.

Really enjoyed this hike. We hiked it in December with snow. The trail is used by snow shoes which made it accessible for regular snow boots. We were very glad that we brought ski poles as it made a huge difference. Crampons would have been nice, snow shoes would have been a bit much since it was so packed. The frozen fall at the end was spectacular as were the views enroute. We were not solitary but not so crowded that it was a problem in winter. We found a spot near the end to slide down on our rumps to cut off a switchback. Added excitement.

A classic, and crowded for a reason. It’s basically flat, can be done in an hour or so, and has great views of Provo canyon and the back side of Timp. Plus, there’s a waterfall at the end! I’ve done this hike as a Cub Scout, with cub scouts, and as an easy date. Very popular, so don’t expect to be alone on the trail. Nice for snowshoeing, though!

Trail almost completely covered in ice right now so it is a little hard to navigate.

This is a great location. I have been 3 times and will be back. Cost is totally fair and the hot springs are great! I haven't done the hike... but I will be there tomorrow.

Hiked up hoping to get above the smog, but this wasn't quite high enough. Trail was mostly in good shape, just a bit wet and muddy in a few places, otherwise you were walking on gravel and a little bit of packed snow.

On the way back down, we saw a handful of Bighorn Sheep about a quarter mile from the trail head. Very cool!

Wow. Wow. Wow. We hiked on 12/1 and there was 2-3' of snow the entire length of the trail. There was a small 2' wide compacted path the entire route so it was nice and easy to follow the path in regular waterproof hiking boots. Saw plenty of hikers with snow shoes and plenty without. It was fine without. The views on this hike are absolutely insane. Honestly the waterfall was great, but frozen over, but the valley and mountain views are top notch. We are here on vacation from Florida and have so far done 3 hikes (Adam's Canyon and Waterfall Canyon near Ogden) and this was our favorite of the three. Unbelievable.

Good hike, steep and rocky but definitely worth the view. I think hiking it in the fall would make for a little bit of a prettier hike, but it wasn’t too bad.

I would recommend this hike in the fall. Not much color now all the trees have lost their leaves and there grass is brown. But for this area the grass is brown most the summer to. Great views of the valley.

Great hike! We went on 9/18 and the trail was still perfectly fine to hike. Some points had snow and were a little slick, especially right in the beginning, but we were just fine in regular hiking shoes. The falls are partially frozen and gorgeous! The trail was not very busy either. We brought our dog, and she had a blast. This trail is rated moderate with some up and down hill, but probably pretty easy for more experienced hikers.

Beautiful and short trail

Fun hike, beautiful sights and great falls.

Fast, fun, family friendly hike. We enjoyed climbing on the rocks at the end near the waterfall and exploring some caves off the main trail.

A great trail with beautiful views and a waterfall at the end. To avoid the crowds, go early.

Nice length (not too short or too long) and varied steepness. We spent time at the falls and hiked with a baby and it took us 2.5 hours

Don’t listen to Celynda Tingey review a couple down! This place is awesome. She seems to be like entitled or something like from the movie mean girls. Go get your 66$ hotel with your cockroaches. This place is not garbage filled or dilapidated at all place is beautiful and well worth the 30$ per person to Camp and soak. I guess 66$ is a lot when you live off your parents money or work at McDonald’s.

Very steep and quite the calf workout. Legendary view and if you go at night, it's great to stargaze while laying on the Y.

Just beautiful. Always loved going here when I was a kid.

Great hike but the waterfall is barely a trickle. There a side hike up the side of the mountain if you have the skills. Beautiful view from the top. Warning signs for mountain lions in the area, did see proof that they have been there, also saw a tarantula on the trail. Will return in the spring. Beautiful canyon.

My husband and I completed this hike on October 21. We started around 10:30 and were surprised to find there were only a couple people we encountered on the way their, and a few on the way back (maybe everyone gone for fall break?).

The trail is lovely and not too steep. We were a couple weeks late on peak fall foiliage, but everything was beautiful just the same.

Our only regret is that when we got to the waterfall, we scrambled down to the river. Instead of scrambling back up, however, we took a long, meandering way down that added a significant chunk of time to our hike. Next time, we'll have to figure out a better way to get back up to the main trail.

The quiet, beautiful morning was well worth the 90-minute drive for us. A must-do hike for northern Utah!

Great Fall walk with kids. Great views and pretty water fall. Super easy trail for 4 years old. It’s steep but the wooden stairs are well built. Watch out for signs or the trail will be easily missed because it is within a residential area.

Super easy walk to the falls. Great hike if you have little ones!
