From US-89 in Manti, take 500 South east, this turns into Manti Canyon Rd. At 8.3 miles up the canyon, there is a pull out to the left. Park & walk right to the falls

bugs

It was a short easy family hike. And worth the drive up the 8 miles of dirt road. We made it fine in the minivan. The waterfall was magnificent. But at the end of June here there were a fair amount of bugs and mosquitoes, so we were bothered quite a bit. Prepare accordingly. Also be aware that there are a couple trees right next to the waterfall and trail that were under cut through flash flooding and look like they may fall at any moment. I decided to deduct a star and gave 4 stars because at the waterfall there’s not much room to roam around (there’s about 5x2 foot patch of dirt). It’s worth going though, and I still highly recommend it.

Very short trail but very pretty waterfall. It was muddy on the road up Manti Canyon and a muddy hike to the Falls. Well worth it!

Super pretty waterfalls, we had a 4 month old and 4 year old so we didn't take the trail up behind the falls. 2 benches for a spot to relax. This is in Manti up Manti canyon, not Ephraim! Long drive up the canyon but a super short "hike."

Easy hike to the base of the falls, pictures do not do it justice! The sound of the waterfall is great to hear in person! More challenging hike to the top of the falls if you choose. Lots of mosquitoes so bring repellent if you plan to stand in one place! Rocks are rugged, and during the peak snow melt, the water is very swift, so it's not recommended to have children near the water unattended. The gravel road to get up Manti Canyon is not maintained so conditions may change quickly due to weather. You can pull off to the side of the road to park just short of the rail hear to get off the road. If you must park on the side of the road, please note, this is a single lane road at this point, so leave room for passing vehicles. The road is relatively sturdy when dry, but gets muddy quickly when wet. I wouldn't try to get up there in the winter. Snow cover becomes very icy. There is no snow plowing or salting on this road in the winter, no barriers along cliffs, so proceed with caution.

We visited in mid July. Beautiful waterfall- but understand that it doesn’t always flow this late into the summer. Easy to find and easy to get to. The kids had fun playing in the water. Highly recommend.

This was such an awesome find. This app made it super easy to find. We walked right up to the falls. It was great! The waterfall seemed much bigger than what they looked like in the pictures. There was a very steep difficult trail that went to the top of the falls. The view was better from the bottom but the steep hike was fun. We had kids from age 7-15 and it was challenging but they made it. The steep hike was not necessary to enjoy this beautiful waterfall. Highly recommend! We drove in a mini van and didn’t have any problems with the road (in July).

This hike wasn't too much of a hike but a short walk up a hill to beautiful waterfalls. This was perfect for my kids after a long day of riding trails. The sign on the road is gone so we had a difficult time finding this hike. The road in from the main road would be difficult for a regular car. You might want a 4 wheel vehicle. You could walk in too. My kids had fun playing in the waterfalls. No one else was there and it seemed like a hidden treasure.

Short walk but the fall were nice

The road is clear all the way up but a little bumpy past Yearns reservoir to the falls. The trail was extremely muddy and slippery with a little bit of snow left. The falls are awesome just like every spring!
