Narrow trail with little shade. My littles (3 and 5) struggled with the way up.

Beautiful trail- great views, pretty wildflowers and the falls are cool, mossy and beautiful. We spent most of our time at the 2nd falls which are about 1/4 mile further along the trail than the first falls. The morning sun was quite hot. Part of the trail is paved. I highly recommend this beautiful trail!

Super gorgeous hike! My friend and I went around 8 at night and made it to the falls and got some nice pictures and just relaxed by the water for a bit. The trail was steep at times and rocky but overall not a difficult hike and one for the memory books!

Started at 8:30 and it wasn’t too crowded on the trail, but the falls area is pretty small and we couldn’t find a shaded place to rest. It is a short trail but dang it gets steep! My 5 month old pup nailed it, but I definitely need to pause here and there. I am not an avid hiker though! The falls were lovely and the reviews are right, the upper falls are better!

It was great trails, the view and waterfalls was amazing! It is dog friendly trails, so many dogs and of course some dog poop... just make sure to clean up after your dog. My 2.5 years old can walk one way all the way till the falls, so it is kid friendly.

Easy trail. Not too steep. Kids can do it. 2nd waterfall is the best.

Good out and back for kids... beautiful scenery “ice” cold water to soak your feet! Trail starts upward incline and does not really level out much.... gradual incline set of switch backs that are small and easily managed. You’ll notice you’ve been going up the entire time when you start back down and it just keeps Going down the entire time back to the parking lot.

We made it to the 2nd waterfall which was amazing. My 3 year old had to be carried on and off. My 6 year old walked the whole thing. It was 3.1 miles round trip.

It was definitely worth it to go up to the second waterfall even with a 3 year old that was getting tired and carrying a 16 month old in a backpack. Trail is paved part of the way but not at the beginning. We started at noon on a Friday and there were very few people on the trail.

Short and sweet. Very busy on a Saturday morning. Our group had 7 kids ages 5-16, and no one had a problem.

Pretty trail, wasn’t terribly busy on a Thursday afternoon. My kids ages 6-12 made it but only with much complaining. Good workout, and the falls at the end were cool and refreshing.

Short and sweet! Trail gets a little rocky once you cross the little bridge but you will eventually hit a paved trail. I really enjoyed this hike. Started hiking at 8am On a Friday and was pleasantly surprised at how few people were on the trail.

HikingSnow

From the Pleasant Grove Ranger District: Mount Timpanogos Trails Update June 15, 2020 "Aspen Grove: Snow begins at the top of Primrose Cirque (about 3.5 miles) and is intermittent until reaching Hidden Lakes (about 5 miles). Snow then covers most of the trail to Emerald Lake. Emerald Lake is still mostly covered with snow/ice. The trail from Emerald Lake to the Saddle is also completely covered by snow. Rivers are running fast beneath snowfields and often are hidden from view. Hikers are strongly advised to hike only to the snowline for safety. Travel beyond the snowline is very dangerous with the danger growing as strong snow-melt accelerates. Snow often lingers through early/mid July in Upper Basins."

Great hike and not too long. Less crowded and shorter than the nearby and more famous Stewart falls trail. First waterfall is nice but the second waterfall is even better. It’s only one more switchback up and compared to the first it is more beautiful, easier to play in, has more room for kids to sit and snack, and has less stinging nettle. I would have rated this hike 5 stars but the trail is so narrow that it is single file line only. So if you have kids and it’s a crowded Utah weekend, you will have to wait off to the side often to let others come down or pass by you. It becomes a bit of a pain.

Hit this one around 11am on 6/9, and it wasn’t too crowded. Despite being only 60 degrees, the sun was fierce and there isn’t a ton of shade. It’s a pretty steady climb with gorgeous views all around—even the avalanche damage is interesting to look at. The first falls is really beautiful and rushing. Watch out for stinging nettle. While my kids (7, 14, 12, and 10) played at the first falls, I heeded another reviewer’s advice and hiked the extra .25 to the 2nd falls. It was absolutely worth it! From a distance, it doesn’t look like much. But when you’re standing under it and taking in the spray and the moss covered walls, it’s breathtaking. I wish we would have all pressed on to the 2nd falls because, unlike the 1st falls, you don’t have to climb down to get to the water. You can just walk straight in. No stinging nettle either. Both of those things kept my boy with autism from wanting to go down to the first falls. Great hike!

HikingSnow

You will hit snow before the lake , and there are warnings not to hike the snow unless you have equipment, experience, and are not alone . You need to pay online or with a card at the station , or self pay envelopes are at the trailhead for cash . $6.00 for the day / 3 day . A lot of this trail has a layer of asphalt. We saw a lot of snakes , squirrels and caterpillars. So a great hike if you want to see a lot . The views are amazing , you see a lot of waterfalls and can stop and play in the second one easily .

This was such a fun little hike! I would rate it as easy, it’s not too crazy of an incline and the trail is paved half the time. Took me a little longer cause I did it in the hail haha but the falls were beautiful and the surrounding were so lush and green this time of year. It’s a little muddy right now but other than that it was a perfect little hike.
