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.

Good short hike with a nice water feature at the end. You can keep going pass the waterfall however I didn't go pass the waterfall. It's definitely rocky and not tons of shade.

Such a good hike! Just coming back from having a baby and this was a great fun hike to get me motivated to kick my butt into hiking mode

It was good. Maybe a little more difficult for the first hike for someone that hasn't been out all winter, like me. there's a steady incline all the way to the top, but not extremely difficult. There were lots of moms on the trail with their children. I just had to stop periodically and catch my breath. It's kind of a short hike, only 2.5 miles. Shady along the trail and very comfortable weather wise. I'm glad I did it!

This trail provides a lot of beautiful views but make sure you pack plenty of water! If you're not careful it'll kick your butt lol

Great hike, the main waterfall is about 100 yds past the bridge and at that point feel that it goes from easy to moderate. The falls are beautiful! Rest of the hike up to the end of the red trail marker it moderate. Seeing all the smaller falls makes it worth it. Plan or doing the big loop here and hitting the peak, won’t be till next month but we may even camp.

Awesome !! ❤️❤️

Did this just this past Saturday. Went past the 1.4 mike make by about half a mile. I’d really like to do the full Battle Creek Grove Creek loop soon.

This falls is a great family hike, and the kids love to stand under the 50 foot falls and get wet. It is also a favorite for those learning how to rappel. There is often people at the top repelling down the side of the waterfall. To get to the falls, you take the Pleasant Grove Utah exit 275. Turn east, and follow the road up to 100 E in Pleasant Grove. Turn right to 200 S, then turn left (east). Follow the road all the way to the top where there is a parking lot, and the trail head. The hike starts kinda dry and hot, but it as soon as you get up to where the water is not piped in, it gets greener and cooler. It is only about 1 mile up to the falls, and there is is cool and a delightful area to explore. If you have more time, you can hike past the falls, and right off the bat you will see 2 more pretty waterfalls. The hike above is steeper but if you go up about another mile there is a spot where the river gets wide, Rocky and very shallow. There is a sign here and there is a trail that heads over to Dry Creek Canyon. If you go from here up about another half mile it gets a little steeper and narrow, but you end up coming to a T in the trail. The right side heads to Baldy or connects also with Dry Canyon. The left side gets up to a dirt road that you can drive all the way out to American Fork Canyon. I usually walk the road for just a little while and then head off on a small trail through the meadow that heads down Grove Creek Canyon, and right by Indian Springs. This canyon was named because a tribe of Indians used to live up in this meadow. Some squirmish happened with the Indians and the Pioneer settlers and there really was a battle between the two that happened at the base of Battle Creek Canyons. A beautiful canyon with spectacular cliffs, beautiful waterfalls, and a bonus that you are very close to the river almost the whole hike. Here is a 360 stitch of the hike up until the turn off towards Dry Canyon. http://shaunasadventures.blogspot.com/2018/02/360-adventure-battle-creek-canyon.html?m=1

Fun, easy, and scenic! A must for families. The waterfall is beautiful and weather was great! Didn’t go past the falls but was fun. Did a Vlog of it on you tube if you want to see it. “Daydreamer” is the channel “Hiking to Battle Creek falls” is the title.

Nice up and back, a little bit of a challenge around the falls and above. The trail is clear of snow and ice. Nice scenery with a the pleasant sound of the flowing creek.

This trail continues up for quite a ways past the bottom falls. Follows the river up. Good steep climb. I ended up turning around at 2 miles as I had to get back. I’ll go again and continue up further. Trail dry for the most part.

Nice little hike up to a cool (literally) waterfall. There was no snow on the trail, but there were some icy patches since there is quite a bit of shade on the trail. But the ice didn’t get in the way of our good time. The kids did great, and the icy waterfall was a nice reward.

It’s more of a road rather than a trail until you get above the falls. Super easy and suitable for kids.

Such a fun hike in the snow. I can't wait to rappel the waterfall. I would suggest spikes once you get to the first waterfall.

This hike was amazing, especially with the changing leaves. I highly recommend going on the trail beyond the waterfall.
