So ironically i am having a hard time finding hidden falls on this site but it is directly to the left of the beginning of this trail and a great pit stop if you are crunched on time or just want to kill a few minutes looking around.
I would definitively suggest taking a look before heading up to the over look of Mill B.
my toddler loved it we got up close to the small water fall in the fall but come spring and the water was a little two high for my little one.

Love this hike even took my son on it in my pack when he was two good hike
Last Spring:
Mill B North Fork was especially breath taking on this rainy hike. The rain clouds moving into the canyon might of made it hard to see the few that most people hike up to the look out spot to see but I would not change the weather for a farther few that day, the clouds rolling in made a fantastically mythical atmosphere that was really enjoyably to see. The cloud cover and rain also made all the colors on the trail come alive, the greens were so vibrant, It was so hard not to take pictures of everything I saw!
I loved this trail because of its winding paths that take you up at a faster pace giving you a little work out bringing the heart rate up. About 10-15 min into the trail it evens out to an area that has vary little of an incline and you can competently enjoy the nature around you and running stream to the left of the trial once you get closer to the look out point the trail gradually steepens.
Once I arrived to the look out the rain had picked up greatly and it was quite windy. And as soon as I stepped up to the top of the look out the rain instantly turned to snow as it fell, through the weather you can see the road going farther into Big Cottonwood Canyon and you can look the opposite direction and see the road leading back to Salk Lake. The best part was when I started to walk back down and I took only About five steps lower and the snow tuned back to rain and as i looked up i could see where it was still snowing, there was a fine line between snow and rain.

Hiked and Snowshoed the trail today. Hiked until he snow started getting deeper up on the ridge the snowshoes did make it easier about half way up. Light snow was falling all morning.

Kudos to whoever marked that little side trail that takes you to the rocky overlook, giving a gorgeous view of the canyon, almost 360 degrees around. This has been my favorite hike in my young career of hiking the wasatch.

I loved this hike! I think because the fall colors were bursting with color. Stunning! I would highly recommend it.

Guess I should have read the reviews about the gals being at the beginning :) I hiked about 2.5 miles up, which is when the path got a little sketchy after going across the face of the mountain. Some steep sections, but overall not too taxing. I think it's classed correctly at 'moderate' - though I would say it's a narrow single trail and some parts are overgrown.

I didn't have time to check out the falls, but the main hike was beautiful and just strenuous enough to be a nice workout without being too hard. Great for if you don't have tons of time but want to see gorgeous views.

Beautiful views from the overlook, although it is very easy to miss the path branch to get to. Hike was moderately difficult, lots of switchbacks so not going too vertical at any point. Mostly shaded in the morning, nice and cool.

Liked this trail not too crazy difficult but definitely some steep spots. View is nice at the top, right in the middle of everything!

Me and my fiance completed this trail and it is actually where he proposed to me because of the beautiful scenery at the top. Great hike to do if you are trying to get better at hiking and want to see some great views!
