Definitely not an easy hike. Almost as challenging if not more than Delano. Missed the trail on several occasions. Due to time & kids complaining unfortunately did not make all the way to the top. Worth the hike. Beautiful views. Just expect to take lots of breaks & check the map at every trail mark u see. Will attempt at another time.

This hike was very beautiful! The waterfall was not as full as I've seen in other pictures but hiking it today it still had a lot of water. A very good hike!

We had fun looking around the old mine sites and cabins on and around the trail. We only saw 2 other people the whole time, which was really nice. It was a good hike overall, and we'll do it again. The Falls were beautiful!

Very steep sections on the way up. Don't take teenagers that aren't into hiking. Scouts got tired after 2 miles and went back.

Because of the snow we had to start near the city water tank. It added an extra 2.5 miles each way and the snow was packed enough that we didn't need snowshoes. Once we got to the trailhead the powder was deep enough to require snowshoes. We broke trail is 6-10 inches of powder. The trail had beautiful views and climbed gradually until half way then more steeply to the view of the Falls. The Falls were completely iced over and beautiful.

We were in town for a family reunion and my boyfriend and I decided to take a hike. We geocached along the way. The trail was nice, it was slippery in some spots from light rain. We got down by the waterfall and it was amazing. I would have to say I loved this waterfall more than all the ones I have been to because it is not trashed or over populated. If we ever get up this way again, we will be hiking this again for sure.

The Sevier county highpoint is Fish Lake Hightop. The high point is just north of the popular, and aptly named, Fish Lake. The most commonly hiked route to the summit is via Pelican Canyon, from near the lake. The Pelican Canyon route is about 8.5 miles and 2500' of gain to reach the summit. A much shorter approach is via Hancock Flat, and is the route described here. Using this route shortens the hike to about 7 or 7.5 miles and an easier 1100' of gain. Those with ATV's or jeep skills can drive to less than a mile and a couple of hundred feet of the summit.

Fish Lake Hightop is similar to the Aquarius Plateau to the south. Once on top, it is a gently rolling, remarkably flat plain at 11,000'. The area is stunning in the fall when the leaves begin to change, but a good hike from spring through fall. The road to the trailhead should be accessible by most all vehicles. Even though most of the hike is on a 4x4 road, it is infrequently traveled and still offers a great day out.

During an ATV trip on the Paute trail, we took a side trail that led our group to this foot trail. The trail is a little rocky, but it is still quick and easy to get to the overlook. The falls are about 75 feet long and beautiful.

Nice trail for ATV's. Expect a lot of ATV traffic. Lots of wildlife, great scenery. This is part of the Paiute Trail. Fairly good road but you do gain altitude quickly.
