Great trail to take the kids and dogs. Get there early!

stopped just short of the summit due to a storm that rolled in. in hindsight it didn't last long but better to be safe then sorry. beautiful views and fantastic wildflowers that got better and more abundent the higher you hike!!!
trail definitely starts off pretty steep but becomes more manageable the higher you get.

Hiked up to the saddle on 5/19. There was a couple feet of snow the last mile starting about a half mile above the meadow. Wonderful hike. There are three or four water crossings this time of year. But I was able to make it without getting my feet wet. Don’t let the full parking lot at he trailhead fool you— 90% of those people will be hanging out along the creek in the maple groves along the first mile of trail.

Great hike for a late spring day. Elevation gain is 1259 feet, but the waterfall at the end of the trail is worth the climb. Saw lots of dogs and people of all ages on the trail.

I enjoyed every bit of this hike! Seeing the waterfall is way more impressive in person than in pictures! I learned via fellow hikers that the main path to the waterfall is considered the “south trail” but there is a “north trail” that leads to a different fall (?) will have to check it out the next time I visit! Otherwise sunscreen, a 2L water camel, good pair of waterproof hiking shoes, and bug repellent will be your friend.

Still lots of snow on the trail, making it hard to follow. The lake is still pretty frozen. I imagine this hike will be a lot more fun and much prettier in a couple more weeks.

Wow! What a gorgeous hike! Yes, the first 0.7 miles are pretty steep, but you’re walking through a gorgeous canopy of trees. Once it levels out, the views are incredible! This was our first time hiking in Millcreek Canyon, and it didn’t disappoint! I can imagine this one being incredible for watching the sunset. The whole family (kids 15, 12, 10, 8) all loved it, though it was challenging for my middle two with special needs...but in a good way.

hiked this trail for the first time 5/20. waterfall is raging right now. this time of year not for anyone uncomfortable with creek crossings. trekking poles would have been good for crossing the falls and the steep downhill. above the large meadow youll hit snow. follow the tracks through the snow and youll make it up to the ridge overlooking BCC but be sure to bring spikes for the way back down. will probably melt in a week or 2.

Awesome easy trail through the jungle. Great for kids and adults equally.

the climb till the fall is little risky and difficult because of cold flowing water.l which may not be the case in summers.

just do this one to be in harmony with nature.


This was absolutely gorgeous, wildflowers blooming, and clear, dry trail all the way up.

Fun, quick, and fairly easy hike. Lots of shade but I’d still recommend bringing sunscreen. The cold water from the river makes it cooler as well. Parking is a little bit limited so going earlier in the morning or on a Sunday allows you to avoid the crowds which can limit your pace both up and down the hike. All around a great hike to get your legs burning and help work up to bigger trails like Mount Olympus or Ben Lomond.

Views are gorgeous. The last quarter mile to the falls is an absolute booty burner, but it’s definitely worth it once you get to the top. Fair amount of rocks. I would recommend shoes with decent traction and support.

Went around 6:30 pm after a spring rain and the colors were magical! The first bit of trail was rocky and gave a great little workout. Overall short/fast hike with lots of wildlife! I startled some deer on the way down.

Just finished this trail-I hike this several times a year. Don’t let the traffic in the parking area scare you. 99% of those people are going across the street to hike donut falls. Even with hundreds of cars up there, I only saw a total of about 15 groups total between going up and down. The last half a mile is still really snow packed and the lake is mostly frozen over and incredibly beautiful! Love this hike!! (Just watch out on the way down for mountain bikers flying down and nearly hitting you)

We took our two poms up who love to hike. It was a fun trail and was beautiful with the run off from the waterfall the whole way up. Don’t recommend bringing small kids as there are narrow areas that are a dangerous fall. Plan on being a little muddy by the time you get back to your car. Will definitely do it again!

I took my 5 & 6 yr olds up to the swing. It was an awesome adventure and the swing was a BLAST... but I wouldn’t take a 5 yr old or younger again. There were some steep drop offs and we had a close call. Going to the swing was a pretty tough workout for two average kiddos. Also- be careful where you park, I saw many ticked vehicles on the side of the paved road that connects to the dirt road.

Didn't quite get up to the mine because of the snow but the waterfall at our turn-around point at was very nice. Was able to find some of the trail where the snow had already melted

Gorgeous hike! The majority is in the trees covered by shade. Bring water and snacks it’ll take about four hours. We saw lots of families with kids and 50+ yr old people hiking this with us. There are lots of places to stop and rest or turn back . There are steep areas that tire you out but also flat switch backs that make it enjoyable. Gorgeous views the whole way not just at the end! Moderate is a perfect rating !

Still my favorite one! Beautiful view during your entire hike!

Super shaded so you stay cool and beautiful the whole time! Loved it!!!

Love this hike and waterfall. It was great, even in January years ago for our engagement pictures. We've taken kids and dogs and everyone always has a good time.

Nice hike with lots of flat areas. The lake is still frozen and it’s really cold at the lake. Bring a jacket. Lots of snow at the very end. I’ve done this hike later in the year and it’s worth it to wait for the lake to be unfrozen, the color is breathtaking.

No snow, no people on the trail, and great views. Love having a trail all to myself this time of year.

We started from the Church Fork Trail and finished at the Pipeline Viewpoint. It’s a nice hike that you can add more to as well! I would rate the portion we did as easy rather than moderate as listed in here :)

The first part of this hike is difficult due to the steep switch backs, then you get into the green and it is beautiful at every turn! It is steep in some areas with lose rocks, so go slow, and coming down was a bit scary. However I was doing this packing my 6 month old, so it’s possible. I’m a moderately in-shape person. Would not recommend this for young kids. It took my friend and I about 2.5 hours out and back while staying at the falls for a while.

Hiked this yesterday. Everything is so green and the wildflowers are out! We didn’t run into any snow and we didn’t see anyone else on the trail. Amazing views! We went to the peak and it is worth the extra effort past the viewpoint. The gate is still closed to drive up to the trailhead so it adds on about 1.3 miles just to get there but so worth it to not have crowds!

This was a great leg workout for sure!

Amazing canyon view. Mission completed.

Today, the trail was gorgeous and cool at around 7:00 am. I have never hiked this trail and would recommend shoes with good soles as well as trekking poles, because it can get slippery and you'll be crossing streams or walking in/and along side them to remain on the trail. I actually lost the trail and decided to head back so that I can try this again tomorrow and be better prepared with different shoes and my poles. Hopefully I can concentrate more on the trail and less on not slipping on the loose gravel. I want to make it to the top!
