The trail up grove creek canyon has lots of switchbacks, minor river crossings, great views, and a nice spring at the end of the hike. This trail sits under MT. Timpanogos and has a great view of Utah valley. It is fairly steep in several places but level enough that it is enjoyable while still being a challenge. There are beautiful waterfalls to look at most of the way and is a beautiful hike overall. Hike to the springs is about 3 miles. Once you get above the falls this trail becomes more of a bushwhack. This part of the hike should only be attempted by experienced hikers equipped with a map (recommend downloading the TOPO and satellite layers in addition to the AllTrails layer).

Nice scenic hike with a nice variety of features, ending at the spring. Start early and bring plenty of water if going in Summer.

Really cool hike. Lives the rocks exposure in the first 1/3. Will definitely be back. Mets up with connector trails once you hit the meadows.

Awesome hike. I went right when you get to the sign and if you go there about 200 yards and turn right again you will see a teepee made by some previous hikers. I had an awesome experience and would love to do it again this summer when I get out of school

The first part is rocky with not much to see until you get to the falls. Push yourself and get to the campground. It's worth it.

Relatively low traffic. Be advised the upper 0.75 mi or so above the falls does not have solid trails marked in the alltrails layer. Some of the tracks are bushwhacking along the creeks - scrutinize them before committing to one. DL the topo and or satellite layers for back-up.

I only experienced this on the way down as part of the Battle Creek/Grove Creek loop. Really rocky towards the bottom. Once you get to the waterfall and go into the trees it is beautiful! I went early May so the campground wasn't just stunningly beautiful. Understandable considering we're barely, barely coming out of winter. The spring is nice.

This is probably my new favorite hike. It is fairly steep in several places but level enough that it was enjoyable while still being a challenge. There are beautiful waterfalls to look at most of the way and is a beautiful hike overall. We hiked to the springs which is about 3 miles and decided to go back down instead of doing the loop because there was a lot of snow past the springs. I highly recommend it!

We hiked all the way to the falls where there is a bench and a bridge then turned back. Noticed you could go further but we weren't sure where that led. AMAZING HIKE! Has spectacular overlooks and beautiful scenery. Probably one of my favorites by far!
