Beautiful hike for all seasons. Shade in the summer, beautiful fall foliage and usually groomed in the winter (I like to snowshoe it). It is a gradual climb along the stream with a couple of bridges. Once you reach the rock quarry hill it is a bit steeper and has looser rock, but getting to the top provides a beautiful view down canyon and of the waterfalls (we spotted three on a rainy day). There are a lot of shell fossils in the loose quarry rock that are fun to find.

Note: the waterfalls are actually just beyond where the red path line on the map shows; you have to hike up to the top of the rock quarry to see them. Once you come to the giant loose rock hill, follow the 4 wheel drive road up to the quarry. When the road reaches the flat top of the quarry, look left and right there may be one on each side. To find the third and easiest to walk up to, walk the flat quarry top west until it turns back in to a dirt road and turns the corner. The waterfall is just beyond that turn.

Awesome downhill!! Although there is a section where you can gap the river but make sure you can clear it! Other than that it’s very fun downhill good for beginners and your riders.

I wouldn’t really call this a technical trail. There’s a couple of small rock gardens, but they aren't much. I would feel comfortable taking beginners who have several runs behind them up there. Not good for a total noob though. From a technical point-of-view, I’d rate it green-blue. I did give it a total blue because it is a decent test of one’s aerobic fitness.

Best running trail in cache valley hands down. Really gradual and playful. Technically ends at the quarry but you could really take it to the top if you wanted. If you want to see the waterfall get to the top of the quarry. Not a trail for a destination, also not the best for hiking. Not busy and good views.

I thought this trail lead straight to the waterfalls. Maybe I missed it but I lost the trail (or came to the end?) and ended up just walking up the steep road by the huge rock pile to get to the falls basically at the end of the road. The trail is beautiful. It follows the river most the way, good tree coverage, and some cool mossy rocks. If hiking beware of mountain bikers. Bikers please be aware of hikers and let them know you are coming if you are behind them! There is a lot of target practice going on, and as mentioned before, the trail is right by the road. So if it's serenity you seek, seek somewhere else.
You can drive up to the falls too. High clearance is better obviously for those few bumpy spots, but we made it in a Ford Focus. I also saw a couple Honda's up there too.

The trail didn't feel like a real hiking trail. It's too close to the road that you hear cars passing the whole way. Also be warned of the cattle throughout the whole canyon. There are a couple of different water falls. One is easy to find. The other is hidden but is beautiful.

It was a very long hike. I didn't like that they had cows and bulls along the path as well as people firing their weapons so close to the trail. I probably wouldn't do this hike again.

Fun trail, up is a challenge for some, but no hikabike areas. However I can run this trail faster than I can bike it.. Down is a blast, but be courteous of those going up. Gets crowded Saturday mornings.

Best trail in cache valley, easy access, smooth, and not as crowded as the others I've tried. I love this trail, it's my all-time favorite now for biking and hiking with my dogs as there is a stream next to it for them to cool off and get a drink.

Very very great trial. Would recommend getting shuttled to the top. It is very steep and long to bike up. It is a great down hill single track. It has some technical rock sections awesome berms you can nail Anne is just all around a great trail but beware there are a lot of places people like to shoot so be careful

Not as good for hiking as it is for MTN biking. Hikers be warned there are lots of bikes on the trail and of course, bikers be warned, there are lots of hikers on the trail.

One of the better single track rides in Cache Valley. It starts off with the more technical sections including some lose, rocky climbs a couple really tight switchbacks. The upper portion is still new and bring broken in. It was built with flow in mind, but has a rather awkward feel to it with very tight turns, fist sized gravel, and ill-placed humps. At the top there is a fun little lollipop across from the jeep road to test your skills on. The jeep road will take up to a rock quarry where you are rewarded with a birds eye view of the canyon and some waterfalls.
