There are two different falls on this hike, a lower and upper (not to be confused with the separate hike Lower Calf Creek Falls). Close to the falls there is a split in the cairns and you can either start dropping to the lower section where the falls are bigger or stay high and go to the more pool like and smaller falls. Both sections are beautiful.
Amazing hike! We got to the recreation center around 7:30am and did not have any issues parking, but the lot was very full by time we finished the trail around 10:30. Make sure to take the brochure from the trailhead, as there are great facts to read along the trail to match up with numbered markers. The waterfall at the end of the trail is absolutely breathtaking!!
Excellent Hike, easy and very rewarding. Four water crossings back to the bridge, but that is just the start. Unmentioned, you cross the river on the north side of the arch, if you continue 15 minutes further on the social trail you will be led to a large hieroglyph panel, Sunset Arch, and a Fremont cliff dwelling When you arrive at the cliff dwelling, the hieroglyph is at the top of a small rise on your left. This also places you at the base of the arch, but to see it you cross the river one more time and walk 3 more minutes and is comes into view on your left.
Backpacked from little death hollow to Wolverine canyon, it was memorial day weekend but there's only another group along the way. Hiking in the endless slot canyon was amazing (except that there're a shit ton of fresh cow shit along the way) and camping next to the canyon was absolutely the best thing ever.
Lower Calf was stunning. Great hike back, hieroglyphics, native ruins (at a distance), views. Take the brochure and follow the informational posts or you will miss the sites. The waterfall was gorgeous. One of the best hikes I did in the area while there for a week.
