Rocky Mouth Falls is a very short hike that is shaded almost all the way. It has a steep step incline at the beginning. Since this is known as a ‘family friendly trail’ I thought I’d mention that we did see an older couple really struggling on the stairs coming down. The trail ends with a nice waterfall, but is currently more of a trickle. Before the trail end, the trail forks to the right at Bonneville Shoreline Trail. We hiked along this route for another mile or so to get additional exercise. Very cute hike, hope you enjoy it. :-)

WalkingGreat!

Not necessarily a hike but it's a great walk for families or something quick and easy to do. When flowing the waterfall is so beautiful! Nice little pool area at the base of the waterfall that would be great to sit down and read or something. Shoes will get wet if you go up to the waterfall :)

This trail is one of my favorites. It’s about a 10-15 minute hike which is also very kid friendly. At the top of the hike there is a beautiful waterfall with lots of shaded areas to sit down and enjoy the pretty view. Enjoy!

It was not easy. It was definitely moderate. We took 11 small children and it was a bit of a climb. Apparently the waterfall is just a trickle this time of year.

Fun hike up the stairs and a really good exploring trail. The kids loved the caves and rocks and what was left of the waterfall.

HikingGreat!

The trail has a lot of uneven steps to get up! However it is mostly shaded so you can go in the heat of the day. I went after work and it was not too hot! The waterfall is however almost completely dry. The rocks are still cool to look at though!

I'm going to bring everyone back who isn't a huge hiker to this place. Neat little spot. provides safe, but even on its hottest day it is still really cool. Nice little waterfall at the end.

A great fun little trail. Makes you feel like you’re in the forest without having to go far. Would be great for those wanting to do an easy short hike!

Pretty quick hike. We did it with kids no problem, although it is uphill the whole way to the falls. Beautiful.

Short little hike with limited parking. Nice little waterfall to rappel off, but getting their can be a little adventure. Gotta hike up a steep climb to the left and then hang a right and slowly climb back down.

Not really a hike, more of a walk up some steps. BUT super short and doable for almost all levels. Many steps on the first part which was the hardest for us. From there it’s hardly a climb to the reward. We got to the parking lot around 8:15am on a weekday and had it to ourselves. Took about 45 minutes in all. On the way down 3 more groups were coming up. The waterfall is pretty but not huge. Decent amount of water flowing right now. We went early enough that the whole trail was shaded but I’d say that about 50% of it is shaded during normal daylight.

Super easy hike, like the other reviews mention, it's very steep but the waterfall was very calming and only takes about 20 minutes.
