The gate is open so you can start at the trailhead rather than lower. Water is really high. I would not recommend going to the waterfall for younger kids till the flow decreases.

HikingGreat!Snow

Very pretty trail! Spikes are a must, and gloves make it wayyyy easier to drop yourself to the waterfall with the rope at the end. Fair warning, the mile leading up to the trailhead is closed, so the hike is closer to 5 miles than it is 3. Worth it though, very pretty, especially when it snowed.

RunningGreat!

Nice after work run. Go up to the fork, hook a left, go to through the campsite, run back down the rode to get some more miles. Bring a head lamp.

This was probably the worst hike I have done in Utah. It was way too crowded with large groups who didn’t seem to realize they needed to share the trail. Skip this one and go to one of the hundreds of better trails

HikingGreat!

Beautiful fall hike, didn’t go all the way down to the waterfall as the way down with the ropes looked like it would be hard on the way back up. Cool to see all the old cars that have fallen down.

Very few people for a mid-day hike. Definitely keep your GPS on the entire way. Easy to get turned around at a couple spots. Bring gloves to make climbing down to see the waterfall easier. There is a rope to assist as the descent is very steep. Well worth it though. Nice spot for lunch. Good mix of sun and shade. Gradual climb up all the way to the falls but not too bad. All in all a great hike.

Had a great time. The trail was clear and not crowded at all going on a Wednesday evening. Once you get to the waterfall you have to go down a really steep section to get down to the waterfall. Ropes are there to help you get down and back up. The waterfall area is really pretty and has lots of places to sit and enjoy. If you live in the area it's a hike you should do. It's an easy trail to do with kids except for that last section with the ropes.

HikingGreat!

Great trail for those living in the area. Trail itself is moderate then a difficult descent using a rope to get to the waterfall. Recommend wearing boots with great traction and maybe bringing gloves for the rope. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone outside of 30-45 minutes as there are better trails in Salt Lake City but it definitely is family friendly and only takes a couple hours

This hike was a very nice hike if your short in time. The waterfall is awesome! It was more like 1200 ft in elevation gain rather then the 839ft. Waterfall is in a nice shady spot.

I did this hike with my 10 & 7 year old boys. It's pretty much up hill the whole way to the water fall, but it was gradual and not too strenuous. The hike down went much quicker! it was about 90 degrees when we did the hike but there was plenty of shady spots along the way as well as multiple streams to cool off in. We did the rappel down to the waterfall which was awesome. Fun hike, I would highly recommend it.
