Nice uphill climb and easy wide trail. Love the waterfalls and creek. Great walk. Lots of bikers.

Not really worth it. The trail takes you along a fence line and most of the trail is actually more of a straight line, uphill service road. That plus the close proximity to the highway make it a very ugly trail. The Creek was neat and the view of Bridal Veil Falls was great, but the waterfall was a real let down. It was just a small trickle and we were there in the spring.

We made it to the overlook point and had lunch. I would suspect this hike is really hot during summer. We went when it was a little windy to keep cool.

really good hike and great views while you hike.

I love how the terrain on this trail varies...from evergreen forest along the roaring creek, to dry and rocky, to snow at the top! I was alone hiking, so definitely didn't attempt the snow without spikes. The distance measurement definitely doesn't take into account the walk from the gate to the trailhead since the picnic grounds are still closed. This trail is very manageable for most ability levels. There are lots of places to stop and take a break. The views are amazing.

It's a great trail for beginner's

Go early or weekdays to avoid crowds. Clean up after your selves! Be prepared to see naked people ☺️

Definitely recommend early in the morning because it gets hot and there’s not a ton of shade but it’s a beautiful easy hike

Nice quick hike. Loved the falls.

Is very scenic and awesome to climb with friends ...but climb with caution , very steep hill sides

Really enjoyable hike and great hot springs.

Hiked this trail yesterday. Absolutely stunning weather! Trail is dry with maybe four spots that still had ice. I’m sure it’s melted off by now. Beautiful overlook all the way out to The Great Salt Lake. Switchbacks make the elevation easy to handle. Highly recommend.

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

Fun and easy hike with some steep inclines but all the falls are worth seeing.

Hiked with the family nice trail for all level of hikers. Watch out for bikers.

Love this hike! The snow has melted enough it’s in great condition.

I found someone’s wedding ring on the trail today. If you lost your ring please contact me by email at jbump86@gmail.com. Hopefully whoever lost it sees this.

Nice trail, very few people. Rocky in places but worth the trip for sure

Great hike! Difficult but not awful. Worth it to go down to the falls. Just watch for the black rope just a ways up after the turn where the sign is.

This trail is tough, but the falls and view of the valley are worth it. The entire way up is a good climb, and the trail is pretty rocky.

It’s a fun hike and the view at the top is definitely worth the climb up. I would definitely bring water and a few snacks. The ice was almost all melted so regular hiking boots were fine.

Fun, challenging hike!
There was a little snow towards the top, but the weather was great this morning. It took my group just under three hours to go up and back.

Went to the top today and didn’t run into snow and the mud wasn’t bad either.

This was a amazing experience! The hike was easy and beautiful in some places. Me and my family went on a Saturday and it wasn’t as busy as I thought it was going to be. Parking was the only issue because of the amount of people! I would definitely do this again! We got in the hot springs and everything was very laid back and fun!

We hiked this today (4-22-2018). I’m not sure where they get that this hike is 2.6 miles but it’s 2 miles round trip. The map is wrong. We hiked to Flag Rock which well past Patsy’s Mine. It is a good hike but the app needs to be fixed to show the actual distances.

It was ok, it felt like every 15 feet I was walking into someone posing with a photographer friend. So many people doing portraits literally everywhere. It was difficult not to get in peoples photographs and I kept having to repeatedly stop and wait for strangers to finish their portraits. There were even girls taking portraits in the middle of the main road walking the yellow line holding hands. They almost got hit by cars going both ways and then laughed about it. Such a weird experience.

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.

Great for family home evening. Also, more adventurous guests can repel there. Bravo nature! Bravo!

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.

Steadily steep coming up the Slate canyon access road, loose shale in some parts, and breaks partially into pines near and after the fork. Pretty views of the backside mountains.
