200 ft. Waterfall, Great Scenery, Ogden Valley Overlook This is a great hike for people of all ages. There are a few places where there are loose rocks, but most people in fair physical condition should be able to navigate this trail. The view of the waterfall and the valley makes it well worth it. There are several trails to explore in this area, just about all of them are clearly marked. Note: some trails are specifically for hikers, others are for mountain bikers. You may see people on bikes on the hiking trails, and most people don't seem to mind, but be aware on blind corners that there may be mountain bikers present.

Very easy but graded well and easy to follow path. Some parts with uneven rocks up toward the creek falls but an easy up and down

The start is a bit boring until you turn onto the actual canyon trail. Before you get to it you will be on a road, with lots of dog mess unfortunately. Once you are headed up into the canyon the scenery is spectacular, and it changes between hiking and a little bit of climbing, but all easy , safe, and well-maintained. The falls are gorgeous, but try to get there early before folks start showing up and climbing the cliffs and acting stupid. (clearly marked, do not climb)

Of Wasatch waterfalls, this one is spectacular. We caught it mid day as the canyon shadows disected the misty sunlight above. Amazing hike that is good for families and kids.

Very pretty. If you go earlier in the year (may-June) the waterfall has much more water coming down whereas it's mostly just a trickle towards the end of the summer
