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.

beautiful views of golf course, the city, and the forests on the trail up. rocky near the top but was fun to scramble up. been to waterfall in spring, summer, and fall. spring is the best for waterfall, fall is great to see the changes in the leaves. great little hike. kinda busy at peak times

Lovely. It could be very peaceful with the water trickling down alongside the trail. It's pretty busy though, lots of kids/teens hiking so it's a bit noisy.

This trail should be upgraded to "heavily trafficked" as it's brevity and accessibility makes it popular with young families and hardcore hikers alike.

Perfect trail for families. May be difficult for very young children, but if you help them you'll be fine.

Great hike. Not as spectacular a waterfall as Adams Canyon one but great nonetheless.

The hike is definitely strenuous! The waterfall was nice and a great view of the valley
