I wouldn't classify this as a hiking trail - it's definitely more of a biking trail since bikers were the only ones we saw. My kids had a pretty miserable time, even my 9 yr old (who LOVES hiking was very disappointed). There's is pretty much no shade, we tripped over rocks and tree roots the entire time and this is a very narrow trail. In some places it was like walking on a tightrope it was so narrow. There definitely is not room to walk side by side on the trail. And the trail starts right at the road so you have to park on the street just before the trailhead. Plus there was a lot of construction, we had to wait forever to get by the trucks.

An easy little hike with pretty mountain and lake views. The trail is quite narrow however which makes encounters with bikers a bit difficult since there often isn't a place to step off of the trail.

This is a very well trafficked and maintained trail. I've been many times. My biggest worry always is the amount of rattlesnakes I've seen through out the years. They shouldn't be bothersome, but keep alert for them just in case.

The waterfall isn't very big and the view of ghost falls was mostly blocked by overgrowth. A cool and easy hike for most people.

Easily one of the most disappointing hikes I've done in the Salt Lake Valley. This might be a good trail for early in the spring or late in the fall, but the trail is mostly exposed and offered very little relief from the mid-summer heat. The falls are not well marked, and as other reviewers have commented, overgrown and hidden. We actually noticed the "little waterfall back there" and kept on walking, thinking that couldn't possibly be our destination.

The trail did offer good views of the valley, especially of the Draper Temple, on the way back down, and is a good, easy hike for kids. That's enough to earn it a second star, but if the falls are what you're interested in, I strongly recommend the shorter trail from the top, which is more sheltered and is a prettier trail.

No big rocks, good for hikes, trail run and biking. Saw lot's of Mountain Bike path.

Start from bottom tunnel, make a loop with ghost falls, round trip about 2.5 hrs.

Start 14:00 and back by 16:30.
Very hot, nice view, drink about 2.5L of water during trip.

Not very long, but beautiful views of the valley.

we did try to go today however unfortunately the road was closed with sign private property !!!

This was a fun and pretty short trail. The view of the valley and the little creek are beautiful. Plus, it is not a far drive from the freeway which is nice.
