Love this trail! What a beautiful view when you make it to the top!

I absolutely loved exploring these trails! It was my first hike in Salt Lake City and it gives a very good view of the city and the downtown area! I suggest everyone go check this out already once!

it had an amazing view i went at about 8:30 and it was amazing.
it's a great place to hike and if you wanted after your hike you could go swimming and soak your feet.
im definently going to recommend this hike to all of my friends.

Great city trail with beautiful bridges

This hike is some work, but totally worth it. Wildflowers are beautiful and the trail worth it even though the views remained shrouded in fog. Go early for fewer people, but go later to make sure to let the fog burn off if views are your purpose.
Dogs are allowed and we saw a lot in the trail, but I’m not sure I would have brought mine. With the mesh covering the last third, I’d be worried about paws getting cut. And if your doggo isn’t trail savvy or they pull, it could be dangerous on some of the steepest inclines.

Well I wish I had picked a better day to hike this. While I enjoyed the hike to the top (mostly shaded and through a wonderful forest with steady elevation gain) unfortunately it was raining pretty much the entire way up and so we didn’t get too much of a view on the top. Also too many pebbles on the way down. But it’s a great hike if you want to get away from the crowd.

I’ll be on Oahu June 12-17th. Looking for the Heavenly Hike experience without the stress of a huge fine! Looking to join a group if anyone is going as well, I don’t think my mom or sister could handle the hike unfortunately... but I’d love to do this hike with a buddy.

Amazing hike! Some climbing involved, but there are lots of holds to hang onto. Most difficult part is the descent down the Falls by the campsite. Lots of lush brush to walk through at the start as well. You might get scratched up a bit. Wear good hiking sandals. Bring a snack, water and a swimsuit

This was a great family hike. The scenery was enough to keep the kids (ages 8,6,4) engaged and going. Trail was well marked and well maintained. It was pretty crowded which was the only real downside.

The swamp at 0.9 mi on this trail was probably an outdated section. They changed the trail, so follow the marking on trees instead of the trail on this map, otherwise you might end up crossing the swamp and get all wet, just like me!

(Or maybe it was because it was raining heavily…)

The last half mile is the hardest. other than that it is a moderate hike with some beautiful flowers. Too foggy to see much today but definitely worth it. Coming down we notice a huge growth in visitor so go early.

Still very muddy, dress appropriately and wear shoes that can take a beating. Hiked it both ways from one parking lot to the other and back, one way takes about 2 hours at regular speed. Make sure to take the 0.1 mile side-trip at the parking lot near the ocean - there's a beautiful lookout point! Top part can be covered with clouds, so carrying a rainjacket is a good idea.

Awesome but tons of ticks

Off leash beach- made me miss the puppies. Enjoyed it!

Great trail, loved swimming in the river for a cool down after a very hot hike! Make sure to bring enough water, the scramble up isn't horrible but it will cause a great leg workout!

Great Park!!

Fun walk with my dog

Amazing

Nice loop hike, falls were great and nice little campground too. Parking at the trail head was full, but only seen about 6 people on the trail.

Did this hike with two eight year olds and a 2 year old in a pack. Hiking up the South Ridge with a chubby toddler on my back definitely made this feel moderate. The kids had no trouble. Lots of snails, slugs, caterpillars, fungi, wildflowers, bugs, baby spider nests, and hollow tree stumps for them to enjoy along the way. Perfect little hike to break in the new hiking boots.

My friend and I walked this trail today (5-19-18) it was amazing, a lot of beautiful landscapes and the river was nice and cold. We toke the yellow and silver trail it definitely kicked our butt, we realized that maybe we need to get in better shape, lots of steep hills and lose rocks. It’s all worth it when you get to the very top and get to see the “mountain” also had to cross the river a couple of times, which we toke or shoes off and it was super slippery nd fell on our butts lol I loveeddd this trail! We made lots of memories and it was an amazing adventure!!!

Second time on this trail, or rather, trails. This loop is actually three trails with a lot of branches and different trails you could take. Manalaha, Maliki and a trail whose name starts with a K are what actually make up this loop.
From the parking lot you start on a trail that goes along the road and through what appears to be a yard then to a little park with a Bathroom. Cross the bridge and go left, wind up a trail about 1/4 mile to where the trails actually start with a trail sign. I went left to the Manalaha Trail first, then at the top of the hill there are 4 different directions you can go. Go down hill that’s Makikj. Then follow it down until another branch in the trail. Go left again. This will take you full circle.
There are waterfalls, a lot of flowers and beautiful jungle.

Short but very pretty trail. The view at the lookout was really spectacular!!! I’m glad me and my husband made this little pit stop on our cross country road trip.

Great hike. Impossible to get lost. Did the loop (some snow on the descent) and just to add to the fun we walked on top of the snow sheds on the way back.

Only a one star so I can mark that it has been closed as of March 18 due to erosion issues. Per the park website.

BEST HIKE I HAVE EVER BEEN ON. Went in October of last year and it was still wonderful
