The trailhead marked on this page is actually a small parking area along Wasatch Boulevard. There is no parking in the neighborhood, so visitors must park here, and then walk through the neighborhood to reach the unmarked trailhead. The trailhead is a little confusing to find, as it is up a private drive.

Peaceful trail, low traffic compared to other nearby trails and lots of shade. I was a little surprised that the first quarter mile is through a neighborhood on paved road if you park at the designated area but once you reach the trailhead it was great. Always nice to be rewarded at the end of a trail with a waterfall.

Steep but not too long. Waterfall is beautiful. Be aware the trail seems to end at a ton of boulders. You just Boulder up and across for a bit to get to the waterfall tucked away.

l equate with Bells just shorter and not as steep. I enjoyed this! lots of shade and wildflowers. one section was heavy in perfume of wild rose. The end was a scramble and needed guidance to find falls. Also, guidance to find trailhead. didnt see snakes, or poison ivy (ty!) I used bug spray and was fine.

Great hike. Nice shade throughout. You are near the stream most of the way. Need to scramble across holders the last 50 yards to the falls. Falls were beautiful.

This hike was by far one of our favorites! The waterfall is beautiful and beyond worth the hike up to it. The hike is pretty much up hill the whole time. Did see a few snakes, but they weren’t rattlesnakes. The last part to the waterfall is a hill of boulders. Go slow and you and your kids can make it just fine. Hike was exhausting as it was all up hill, but amazing!

Beautiful hike, pretty steep. Stop at the waterfall, going further gets sketchy after about .2 miles

Started just after 6am, hardly anyone out. Beautiful full greenery. Great incline with some good steep sections. Lots of little waterfalls before the big falls. Buggy- forgot spray, but not too bad. Didn’t see any snakes- whew!

Good hike. Great exposure to nature. You will constantly hear the water flowing besides you throughout which is relaxing. Gets scary and tough at the top. Make sure you carry bug spray with you.

Don’t miss the waterfall! It’s a little over a mile up, to the right of the first rock scramble. We missed the turnoff for the waterfall and hiked up further, it had nice views but got a little scary. Wear lots of bug spray! I got bit through my leggings a lot.

This trail is magical...like an enchanted forest. I went around 6:45-7 AM to avoid crowds but on the way down there were a lot of people. Boulder field to cross at the top. If you park on Wasatch, turn up Canyon cove drive, Left on oak canyon drive, Right on canyon winds lane.

Nice intermediate trail but steep going up. Waterfall was great and flowing nicely. Rocky coming down. Rattlesnakes spotted too. Be careful with loose dogs.

Great hike- steady to steep incline at parts. Last segment is a scramble that ends with a waterfall early AM is a great time to avoid crowding.

This was a super beautiful hike with amazing scenery points. It’s a steady incline all the way up and you definitely get super sweaty. MAKE SURE TO BRING BUG SPRAY!!! There are bugs all along the path & get super irritating if you don’t have bug spray. We saw two snakes right at the beginning but none more. Once you get to the waterfall you are pretty much done. The trail keeps leading upward, the rocks are cool to climb to get a better view of the valley but don’t continue forward. There’s not much and just gets more difficult & not worth it. Overall I really liked this hike. Waterfall is beautiful!
