Once past the second falls, the trail follows a series of carins set by the Wasatch Mountain Club in conjunction with the Forest Service. This mapped route is a close estimate of that route. It is not recommended for novice hikers. At the Upper Reservoir one can continue to other high points in the Wasatch back country that will require mountaineering and or good navigation skills.

One of the hardest hikes in the slc area in my opinion. Steep and rocky. Tough on the knees, feet, and ankles, for me anyway. But, so beautiful! The views of slc are great. Upper falls aren’t as spectacular as lower falls, but still worth the challenge.

The description in this app is a little misleading on the 6.2 miles out and back. That mileage is to the upper falls and not the upper lake. As one of the other reviews said it is a good 9 1/2 to 10 miles out and back to the upper lake and it is a real scramble on some sections of the trail. I'd definitely do the upper falls again, not sure I'd do the upper lake again.
