I have to say that anyone for the most part(people transplanting from other states) if you are giving hikes a 1 star rating, you obviously are not able to see any beauty in most things. Go back to Jersey(you know who you are) And quit polluting our state(people from Cali) you also know who you are. Utah has been one of America’s best kept secrets for a long time. How about you respect it and see it for what it truly is.

I had the hills to myself. I can see some trail work has been done. A good uphill climb to a gorgeous open meadow. Then a good drop down into the steams feeding into the reservoir.

City Creek is perfect for a progression workout if you’re a runner. The 3 miles of 600ft gain is manageable enough to run the entire way out. And you’re rewarded with a fun 3 miles back screaming down the canyon! Paved and very nicely shaded

slow jog from the winter gate--->Little Water trailhead--->200yds from Little Water peak@sunset, so I had to turn around before I got to cold (tank-top+T-shirt). It was a unplanned hike but beautiful as nature provides. I'm planning on backpacking.

If the drive through the canyon up to this trail doesn’t take your breath away, then the views from the lake and the trail itself absolutely will. Went up this hike around 6PM last night, and there were very few people on the trail. I recommend bringing a sweater or a light jacket as it is pretty well shaded by trees and the surrounding mountains. Ran into one small patch of snow on the way up and a little bit of mud, but the trail is very clear right now. I would also suggest bringing bug spray as there are quite a few bugs around the water. The trail is a little steep at parts, but it really is not very difficult. Took me about an hour and a half to get up and down, not including the time I spent by the lake. Very easy to get to Lake Catherine and Dog Lake from this trail. Highly recommend this hike for any skill level.

Super petty, not too hard or crowded! But it has 0’shade!

Hike up in about an hour. The turn off to the falls is easy to miss. Look for the ledge with the black rope.

On the return I kept heading up the mountain where there are two logs to cross the stream. From there don't go up the hill, but take an immediate left, and return on the Lake Hardy trail. The trail is poorly marked, so you'll definitely need a GPS and map.

Loved this hike, most of it is shaded so it’s great mid day! Amazing view points so plenty of pit stops if you need a break(: My dogs loved it, a river runs by at the half way point and a waterbowl is set up at the end; that was great! Worth trying just make sure to be prepared for a straight incline hike.

Very steep short hike to falls. Fun little places to walk in the river and up under the waterfall.

Elegant trail, fun water spots, assistance in any steep areas. bring water!

A perfect place for photos. Bring a camera!!

Family perfect hike. I proposed to my wife here!

great trail, mostly paved, access to parks and recreation areas. the falls look great and catch the sun rise beautifully.

Enjoy this trail and let it take you places.

This hike was gorgeous! We started at about 7pm from the Bells Canyon Granite Trailhead and it took until about 8:30 to get to the Lower Falls. Didn't stay long there because we only had another 30 minutes of daylight. Got back to trailhead at about 9:45 though when you head back down you're still in the direction of the light. Definitely recommend a hat for non-shady parts as well as bug repellant. A hiking pole is helpful but not completely necessary. Great workout and definitely worth it. Also NO DOGS allowed on this trail.

Saw a moose around the lake, plenty of chipmunks, prairie dogs. Nice trail easy and well marked .

Awesome view at the top! Decent incline most of the way up- worth it though

The wildflowers are incredible, and the lake is so beautiful!

This hike was jaw droppingly gorgeous. I couldn't believe how big the payoff was to get to the top. Make sure to take your time and explore the different paths at the beginning; almost all of them lead to the top.

Great hike with some elevation gain. I suggest leaving early as the trail gets crowded. Had a few issues with mountain bikers descending and passing with no bel or no warning. This could make things a little hazardous. All in all, I recommend this hike and look forward to running it.

Views beyond compare! We did this hike on June 17. Some minor patches of snow on the trail toward the top. The wind was more chilly than we had prepared for so bring a windbreaker at the very least! Luckily, my kids had hoodies tied around their waist. We saw moose here last year in August, but none during this trip up. This was my second time up this trail and it is a new family favorite.

Perfect trail if you only have a few hours in your day to hike. Scenic rewards and a beautiful lake to visit.

Very nice trail with beautiful views! I didn't read the reviews that said to stay right at the fork (honestly don't remember a fork) to get to the top of the falls so we ended up climbing up some rock and cutting over about the middle of the falls. Will definitely try again to find the right way to go to the top!

The hike to the waterfall doesn't have the most beautiful scenery but if you're up for it, you can keep going past the big waterfall and a second little waterfall and it becomes beautiful! we went all the way up the canyon to an open meadow that has a campfire pit. I highly recommend getting to the meadow if you can. Coming down was a little hard on the knees so take it slow if you need to.

Loved this trail! Some of the most beautiful views of the mountains and valley. Started at 8 am, got to the peak about 9:30. Got down in about an hour. Great workout but not as hard as other peaks. Definitely one of my favorite hikes now. Everything was super green & lots of beautiful wildflowers.

Moderate, pretty steep but not too bad. Pretty waterfall at the top

Decent hike, great view

Incline the whole way...can be tough but the view is worth the cardio

Great trail! Dog friendly. Very steep at the beginning but flattens out once you get about a half of a mile up!

This is a great trail, I was surprised how easy and quick it was to see the waterfall! It’s a pretty waterfall but there is definitely crowding in front of the waterfall but other then that the trail was mostly cleared!

Last week-end the gravel service roads were closed to cars so we had to park way down from the trailhead and had to walk up the service roads for 50 minutes just to get to the trail. Then we hiked about 45 min to the top to see the lake. There was still snow on the trail in some spots and it was quite muddy, but warm weather when sunny. You had to cross two or three creeks with slippery rocks but often you could find a long way around- just avoid the mud. The lake still had patches of ice and was beautiful. I don’t need to do this trail again for a few years. Took 4 adults 3 1/2 hours

I love this trail, it was very fun and adventures throughout. me and my partner made it to the end where there is a very beautiful waterfall at the end much rewarding. my first this year 2018.

No reward at the end. Scary disliked strongly the bush. We didn’t like the bush. Hit me up if you actually like hiking in the bush. We want to know why.
