Nice hike with spectacular views. Very narrow in parts and can be muddy which sucks going down.

Loved this hike. We started at Battlecreek and ended up at Grove Creek. Grove Creek is a new favorite. We stopped and filled up water at the spring at the top. Can't wait to do this again when the trees and wildflowers are out.

My phone registered the whole loop at 9.3 miles. If you park a car at each trailhead and don't do the last leg, it is 8.2 miles. The trail had only a few muddy spots. Glad I took my GPS trail tracker. There's limited signage, and many places you can take a wrong turn.

The meadow was a great spot for a lunch break! Beautiful views.
If you're bringing Fido, there are a lot of dogs off-leash here.

Hiked on April 21, 2018. The trail was completely clear of snow minus a 20 ft section. There are stunning views of the valley and mountains. At the very top there is a huge meadow that has the best mountain views of the hike. Many waterfalls throughout the hike!

Used Adam's Canyon Trail to get to Adam's Cabin Trail. Very difficult to get to Cabin Trail from Waterfall (Canyon) Trail. We enjoyed the challenge of it as we found ourselves in the middle of nowhere. Near the cabin the trail is covered by snow but we were able to use a previous hiker's footprints. Definitely will do it again but will use Adam's Cabin Trail. Missed the waterfall due to high water.

Beautiful hike! Some bouldering at the end. Mostly dry.

Not well marked. Kept getting lost/confused. My advice: follow the stream the entire way. You’ll be on the left for most of it then there’ll be a bridge taking you to the right side somewhere along the way. AllTrails thinks this trail is longer than it actually is. If you keep looking for a trail by the big waterfall, you’re probably not going to find it xD

love this hike! it's never too crowded but expect a few people around between 10-2. it's a nice work out all the way through.

It's awesome and very beautiful!

My 5 yr old twins and I hiked this trail today and was not disappointed.
They handled the trail great and the waterfall at the end was a great reward.
Beautiful hike and will be returning.

Awesome hike. My 5yo and 7yo were able to make it all the way to the waterfall. it's a tough hike but worth it. the trail is pretty busy. I think the hardest part of the hike is the very beginning.

It’s a very steady hike at the beginning but by the end it does get a little steeper. The hike is almost completely dry except for a minute at the end where you have to cross water to be able to see the waterfall.
For me the hike was about 5 hours total, with nice areas along the way to take breaks or eat lunch.

Trail is clear and wide at the beginning. Nice hike and no snow.

Nice hike. It was crowded for a weekday. Good for families, passed by a lot of kids. Lots of dogs and dog waste along the trail. Couldn’t find a trash to throw away my dogs waste.

Great Hike, First Utah Hike

A great hike all year round. I especially enjoy snowshoeing on this trail. There is enough elevation gain at a gradual grade, that makes for a good cardio workout. I always bring at least a liter of water, wear sunglasses, head covering and I pack a snack and a light weight shell to protect from the wind.

The switchbacks are shaded, but the summit is exposed to the sun and wind. Excellent 360 degree panoramic views of Ogden Valley, Mt. Ogden, Ben Lomond and the Great Salt Lake.

Great day hike. Dog friendly. it is a steady climb the whole way. Good shoes and plenty of water is a good idea.

Camping under mount Magog in the wildflowers was awesome! The lake is pretty neat and we saw some deer at dusk. Lots of good campsites, had no trouble finding one in July.

Snow packed and ice covered trails. Ice trekkers are a must right now on the trail. I only went to were South Skyline Trail loops, then the snow wasn’t packed down and snowshoes were needed.

This trail is quite the hike up and has beautiful views.

Great hike! I didn’t think it was as difficult as it was rated! Nice and dry try most the way up!!

Love this hike! First time going and the scenery is beautiful! Wear your micro spikes or you’ll have a hard/funny time coming down ;)

Awesome trail! Lots of different small trails to take around the mountains/falls. If I could give it 6 stars I would!

Nice easy trail that you go mostly down to get to the lake and then have to climb mostly up to get back. My wife thinks that this trail is uphill both ways. Notch Lake is a reservoir so there is a lot a bare shoreline in the fall. Some people like to jump from the cliffs on the opposite side. Bench Lake is also a litter past Notch Lake

Great views from the op

Small Lake in a nice setting.
