Magical and almost too good to be true. Waterfall enthusiast. Beautiful state and locals have been so kind to this Oklahoma Lady. Loving my stay here.

The directions on this has you parking next to lagoon. You actually walk through the lagoon trail and then you figure you’d better walk toward the mountain since you thought this was a hiking trail on the mountain, hahaha (the signs are limited). It was a nice climb up but since there were hardly any signs and the path is faint on some parts and then many other paths show up along he way and don’t know where to go (due to he lack of signs) you can easily jump onto another trail. Which I did, I ended up on bonneville shore line trail instead. The trail is open/exposed to the sun, maybe a bit warm during the summer months. It was great weather when I went in October. Some people were shooting their guns out in the area so you need to be aware of that so you don’t walk in their path. I’d like to try again but be on the Farmington creek trail, rather than the bonneville shoreline trail. I ended up doing 4.1 miles out and back with little elevation gain.

Great trail for a quick hike. Took our 6 yr old and 10 yr old they had a great time. Easy trail a couple of steep spots but not bad.

It was very beautiful and quiet. It was really nice in the beginning, but coming back was challenging. Definitely worth it though.

This is the same hike as Farmington Creek Trail. These two entries should be merged. And after taking along an inexperienced friend, I would agree with the Farmington Creek rating of moderate. Starts at the parking pullout where the pavement ends up Farmington Canyon. Hike just to the falls or continue on to Sunset Campground. Beautiful hike above and through Farmington Creek. Very enjoyable.

Really nice trail, not too steep, an easy 2 hour or less trip with time for stops. Several mini-waterfalls and stream crossings, beautiful valley views, enough shade along the way to get some relief. WARNING: I didn't read the other reviews and missed the parking lot. It should be obvious, but I thought it was farther...it is on a switchback as the road turns to gravel. I realized my mistake after awhile and made a precarious turn around...easy to see how the cars along the hike ended up there!

Did this after work yesterday. Was a good workout while not to demanding. This is the same route as another trail. This is the same trail as another hike listed. The funny thing is this is listed as easy and the other one as moderate. Overall it is a fun hike and you get some great views
