Very easy paved trail, my kids loved all the bridges. Went this past weekend, and while still pretty, the fall colors are mostly all gone. It wasn't very crowded when we went which was nice. It is quite a drive to get there and I'm not sure it was worth such a long drive.

Very pretty, also very short. We were done and back to our car in about 30 minutes.

This is by no means hiking. It's all on a wooden, man built trail that allows you to walk over the springs. It's like what they built in Yellowstone. It's a lovely walk though and very peaceful. We even spotted wild turkeys!

Easy trail , lots of wildflowers and running waters.
I dug my feet in the water and it was freezing.
I did this trail last year.

A very nice nature walk, excellent for non-hikers. Well-travelled as a result.

So very, very beautiful. It's easy. It's fantastic to look at. It's great for kids. Only possible downside is how sunny it can be. Go on a cool day or bring sunscreen.

A nice hike in trees and running water, with plenty of picnic and rest areas, too.

I would not describe this as a hike, it's definitely more of a stroll good for families. I went on a Sunday around 5pm in light rain, and even then it was really busy. On a nice Saturday afternoon, it is probably unpleasantly crowded.

However, the surroundings are beautiful! I can see it being magical on an early morning when the weather is nice and there is no one around.

If you are coming from SLC, I would highly recommend approaching along the Alpine Scenic Route as opposed to through Midway, especially if you want to avoid a very long, rocky dirt road full of ATVs and dirt bikes speeding all around you. I drive a Honda Civic and was afraid I'd get stuck in the dirt or run over a thrill-seeker. Plus, the Alpine route is absolutely stunning, definitely my favorite drive in the area!

Went today (6-1-17) with my nephew. We were pretty much the only people there. It was so beautiful and peaceful. But I bet it gets pretty crowded on the weekends.

Short walk. All paved. Great for kids, and leashed dogs. It's getting hot though because there's not a ton of shade up there. I'd do this in the morning.

Absolutely beautiful place to see water cascading over rocks. The place just opened up so there was still a lot of wildlife (deer, moose, butterflies, birds of every kind, etc). Fair warning, even on opening weekend, there were quite a few people here even a couple taking wedding pictures. Make the trip...well worth it.

This trail is closed due to snow on the roads. I was told on May 14th that it likely will be open around Memorial Day.

This is a nice little paved trail which goes through and around the springs. Great for families with small children. Love the drive up through American Fork Canyon to get there. You will need to pay to use the grounds. No picnicking allowed, either. The temperature there isn't much different than what you experience in the valley.

although this trail starts about 18 miles up American Fork Canyon this place is worth seeing. this is a easy walk for the whole family, the trail is all paved making it easily accessible for strollers and wheel chairs. their are several little waterfalls, pretty yellow flowers and when we were their we even saw a deer.

This is a beautiful little walk. It was totally paved. This is a great place to take friends or family that don't actually hike. We saw a moose right off of the trail today.

Best for sunrise before the crowds arrive. Great place to enjoy solitude early in the day.
