This is really a nice, short hike. It took a little less than 2 hours, including time to wander around and hang out. I went early in the morning before there was anyone else out. The parking for the trailhead is immediately after the paved road ends. It's pretty obvious, as there is a parking area, although I initially got confused and kept going even though Googlemaps had it exactly right. If you keep going on the narrow and scary dirt road (Farmington Canyon Road) you can drive up quite a bit further, including to Sunset Campground Rd, where there are campsites and another trailhead from which you can hike down to the falls on a short but steep trail. Some of the posted pictures here show cars that fell off of Farmington Canyon Road into the canyon. You could in theory do this as a loop, going up the trail and coming down the road, but I can't imagine why you would want to walk down the dirt road when the trail is shady and beautiful, running along the creek.

Beautiful rigorous hike! Fun hike down to waterfall! When u park the trail head is directly behind the parking.

A great hike with several stream crossings and waterfalls along the way. A beautiful hike in the morning. Look for the unmarked trailhead in the northwest corner of the parking lot where the road transitions from asphalt to dirt.

Gorgeous trail. In the morning it's shaded a lot with a great breeze from the water. So much fun. I will definitely be doing this again

nice trail with a great waterfall. Alltrails is marking the road as the trail instead of the actual trail as the trail. you can see on the map the real trail. Besides, the trailhead is obvious once you get there. the distances and elevation gain of the trail are wrong because they are measuring the road.
