We parked on top of the ridge and enjoyed the hike very much. It was a calm evening, not too hot or cold, just right for a quick hike to an interesting creek, dam, and pretty waterfalls. I wouldn't bring my own little kids on foot, but maybe we will bring them on the ATVs sometime. On the hike out, the range cows were occupying the main trail. The cows and calves were okay, but when we encountered a pawing, drooling, growling bull coming right toward us on the trail, we strategically got out of his way and positioned ourselves behind one of the power poles until he had passed by. Next time, I would like to give the aquaduct route a try.

Wow do not take the direct route to get there that Google shows unless you have a really good off road car. Go via Brown's road. I parked off the side of the road. I'm not an experienced hiker so this was pushing my limits, but it was a good hike. If you take the small trail to the dam is goes down steep. It took me less than 3 hours for the whole thing with a small dog. Watch out for ATVs.

Beautiful day hike! Most of the hike was pretty easy, but there was a steep slope near the falls that was pretty strenuous. The falls are amazing though and I was by myself pretty much the entire time I was there.

If you are hiking, the DIRECTIONS given on this site are COMPLETELY WRONG. Instead, park at Warming Hut 33, then go north the 0.6 miles to a fork in the trail, take the fork to the right. You'll walk along the old aqueduct and it is mostly level the remaining 1.2 miles. It's a MUCH easier hike, and an easier trail to follow.

Super fun hike. The last little bit before the falls is pretty steep but the beginning half is easy. The waterfalls are really pretty and the area is so peaceful. I would definitely recommend this hike to my friends.

We’re pretty sure we were growled at by a bear at the bridge. We heard it about 4 times before we hightailed it back to the car. We never saw it, and my dog never picked up on it. Besides that— it was a really nice hike. Lots of hills, so it was a good first of the season hike. Only saw 4 other people.

Good trail, begins as an atv trail but about a mile through the mud turn left to get to the falls

Great day for a little hike. Lots of razors, dirt bikes out on part of the trail. All trails map did not disappoint. Lead us right to the waterfalls. Definitely has ups and down parts of the trail. We did the loop. Fun hike!

Awesome trail! Wish it had signs showing which way to go. We never actually made it down to the water because we couldn’t find the trail. Lots of hills - so be prepared for a good workout!

This was awesome; however, in driving there drive south of Rexburg and turn onto Brown Rd in Herbert. It’ll get you MUCH closer than following Google maps. Once you get to the power lines, hike east all the way to the trail head. No markings, super steep, but the waterfalls are cool at the bottom. Was about 3 miles for us without taking the loop. We simply hiked there and back.

The parts along the power lines aren’t anything special but then it gets really fun on the way down to the creek. The waterfall area is beautiful!

Fun little hike. A little bit of snow still left, but a few spring flowers were starting to show. Water falls were obviously in full swing and more impressive than other reviews make it sound. Few signs of elk
