Trial is heavily used. We hiked up through a neighborhood. Neighbor had sprinklers on making the first portion muddy, slippery, difficult. First portion is steep with lots of stair. Very steep. This lasted about ⅓-½ the distance. The rest of the trail has lots of powder dirt. Makes it very slick even in dry conditions. Wet rock is okay until you get up to the face of the falls. We had help one person get down as it was slippery and difficult coming back down the face. This was not an easy hike for little ones. We took a newborn, 3, 8, 10. They did okay. We had to help a ton so they did not slip.

Perfect short trail for families and the like. Super easy and cool waterfall at the end. We had a party of 6 ranging from 6 years old to 40. It was shady and delightful

Easy hike starting in a neighborhood. Good for families and young kids. It’s mostly up stairs. There is mud on the stairs making it slick. A good short hike.

We had a wonderful time this morning. The 2.5 year old kept up and kept saying “me don’t want to go home” so we went up boneville shoreline as well.

Such a fun short hike. Even when it’s raining! We had to be more mindful of each step so we wouldn’t slip, so it took us a little longer. It took us a little over 45 minutes. My 4 year old and twin 11 year olds came with me. I had to hold a hand the entire way due to weather and the steps, but she did great. There are a couple fun mini caves or rock alcoves along the way for kids to imagine and play in. What lovely little waterfall!!

Nice trail even for someone overweight like me I completed with a little bit of a sweat but was a rewarding little waterfall. It was crowded though so I had to leave because I was uncomfortable with how many people were next to me.

Nice easy walk up to the falls with some off trails option. I also tried to climb up the rocks next to the falls to see how far and where they would lead to but didn’t get to finish it. Want to come back and finish that at some point in the future.

Super easy trail with a beautiful water fall! If you want to walk longer, you can turn right at the fork instead of going up to the falls and get on the Bonneville Trail.

Nice and easy. Starts in a residential neighborhood. Lots of stairs to go up, but a cool little waterfall at the end. Nice reward for a little effort.

This was a short hike but it had a steady incline. The first little bit was stairs.

Great little hike that the little ones shouldn't have to much trouble with until maybe right by the falls simple hand holding may be needed to rock jump if they dont want to get wet. As far as SLC county hikes, this is about the best reward for such a short hike (under 1 mile). What I like about it is that the BSL trail runs near it so you can always add some mileage if you want.
