A lotta bang for your buck on this trail. This is the easier of the two routes to access Bells Canyon. Parking is tight though. There are a couple overflow lots.

Beautiful. we loved the lake, the scenery, the rocks, all of it! there were some icy patches, but that's to be expected in the winter.

I just moved to Utah and this was a great starting hike to get used to the elevation a little bit. Nice scenery of the city and a pretty lake to rest at. I'll definitely be back.

I liked this hike. The trees haven't really changed color, but it will be really pretty when they do. There are a couple steep parts, but not bad. This trail leads you to the Bells canyon reservoir which was WAY easier than taking the Bells canyon trail to get to the reservoir.

total bummer drove all the way from Holladay to the trailhead and saw the no dog sign at the trailhead although this is marked as a dog used trail in this app

This is a fine trail, but not the greatest. A little steep in some parts for kid legs. When I went last fall the water was really low, but the boys still liked to throw rocks in it.

Confusing to get started but gorgeous at the top. If you fly fish bring your ROD boys/girls

Took my boys, 9 and 10, no worries. Lot's of water, stay clear of the falls. Lot's of small animals and birds actively welcoming spring and looking for food. Good trip, great distance and vertical for the boys. Initial vertical is greater than 80% of the hike if you set in from LCC.

Good hike up and a trickier run back down.

Beautiful view, wild flowers, squirrels, birds, ducks and lakes. You enjoy the nature noises and the smell of the flowers.

This hike was GREAT! Much easier way to get to Lower Bells Reservoir than the boulder trail, at least if you are carrying a kiddo on your back! Highly trafficked after noon, so go early! Incredible views. Perfect beginner trail, a beautiful hike.
