It’s nice for what it is, I wouldn’t say it’s a hiking trail, it’s not in the mountains but it’s still pretty!

Beautiful landscape with nice waterfall features. Lots of spots to stop, take a break, reflect, or just rest.

Popular, you'll pass lots of people, but great place for a day hike or more like a stroll.

Easy access, but the pond stinks. Much better to walk the stream above the pond

Not really a hike - but a great walk with gorgeous landscaping and flowering gardens and landscape architecture in general. Worth the walk!

This is not a hike so much as a location.

Not really a trail, but a nice place for a date. It's come a long way since Rape Hill.

I work at BYU so I'm here quite often. They've recently improved the pond area and the walking paths around the south part of campus. Come see what they've done. It's impressive. If you visit during the warmer months you'll get to see all the water features.
