You have to drive on the dirt road to the trailhead ( require an extra ground clearance ). This trail is mix of open air area and well shaded. There’re so many trails overlap so you need to follow the right direction. I also ran into 2 snakes and wild turkeys. The falls itself is very very small. I was disappointed

Loved this trail! The trail intersects many others trails so it’s fun to just explore! Lots of huge bull snakes and poison ivy! Road was not closed but is very long and extremely rocky. Use a truck with clearance !!!

The road to this trail head is closed a mile before the trail head, so expect to have to walk an extra mile for now if you want to go. I decided to just hike closer to where the road is blocked and there were lots of trails (mostly meant for bikers), but some great peak views!

My first time meandering around Corner Canyon. I had my 12 year old son with me. We hiked “walked” Hollow Canyon trail. Checked out Memorial Cove then up the Hoof & Boot trail, hit the Alpine road and onto the Ghost Falls trail and back to the car. The Hoof & Boot trail was cute like a fairy garden. Pretty spring flowers. Not tons of elevation gain but good to do with kids or as a trail run. Ghost Falls I would like to do again going up. Shady and pretty! Watch for Bikers & Runners.

Started at the East Bench Trailhead. Took Rattler to the Ghost Falls Trail. Both had quite a bit of bike traffic so I took primarily foot traffic paths back. Took Phantom to the Ghost Falls Trailhead (closed now for the season), then followed Phantom back to Casper, then Hoof and Boot, and Burnham Loop. Eventually reaching Bonneville Shoreline Trail back to the trailhead. It was sort of a game to figure out how to make it back down without having to deal with bike traffic and it worked wonderfully. I was the only hiker on the trails, which I thought was unusual on a Saturday afternoon! I did see a half dozen mule deer, though. Great hike!

Fun trail which passes through a silica pit and winds through shady scrub oak. We took the first sign to Ghost Falls. This is the slightly harder route, mostly because it is in the sun. The waterfall was really gushing, 6/17/2019, but you can’t really get close to it because of the fence and stinging nettle. But it’s a nice destination. We continued across the bridge to make the trail a loop. I think going up and back on the shady, easier route would be more fun for kids because there are several bridges to cross. We had a fun time, but if we had to do it again, we’d pass the first sign for Ghost Falls and continue to the second sign.

The water falls where nice. The trail was mudy but expected it rain the night before.

Fun hike. Great views of the valley. Taking the more difficult route wasn't terrible. But a bit more of an incline. You can choose the easier route.

This was fairly shaded for the afternoon, but there were so many trails crossing each other that without following the map while I was recording, I'm not sure we would have stayed on track.

Had a little bit of mud but EASY to avoid. This is definitely a family friendly hike and I think it has great places for kids to explore! The waterfall is nothing extraordinary compared to other waterfalls in the area like Bell Canyon Lower Falls but for little kids I think this is perfect! As you can see from our recording we followed the trail but explored others for a bit. Another thing is the left route labeled “more difficult” really is more difficult so with kids stay to the right. The right side is also a lot more shaded!

Took the whole family and loved it! We stayed on the Hoof and boot trail as much as possible because the bikes aren’t allowed on that trail. It was shaded a little more than half of the time and a very beautiful trail to be on. The water fall and bridges were fun. We saw some old vehicles that had fallen off of a road and down into the canyon many many years ago. We will be doing this hike again.
