Fun hike! 2 moms who took 10 kids from ages13-2 (with babies on the back). It was a little difficult at times, but as long as you take your time on the difficult parts, it's not bad at all. Kids loved the water and the rope swing! Had a great time!

Great trail! Loved the mile markers. Some rough places (climbing over rocks and such). Rope swing was a lot of fun! Bring plenty of water!!!! It's pretty shaded but all the terrain your going through you need to stay hydrated! Confusing finding the trail head. Once you get to the end of the paved road.....make a right! Follow around until you find a big open area to park in! I wouldn't recommend doing this one alone. There is some steep embankments that you could fall down

BEAUTIFUL trail. The terrain was rough but we got through with kids in tow. There's something beautiful to look at the entire hike. The trail stays within view of the creek for most of the time. There is a rope swing about 1.25 miles in, which the kids and adults both loved. There were a good number of hornets around the wetter parts of the trail but they left us alone as we hiked through. We will definitely hike it again.

Please, don't touch the petroglyphs. DO NOT TOUCH THE PETROGLYPHS. They have faded tremendously since i was last up there they are irreplaceable and spectacular. Thank You,

DIRECTIONS:
The directions from All Trails will get you to an empty dirt lot, the TH starts at the wood sign on the NE side of the dirt lot.
Let me start by saying that the Moderate rating on this trail is not for the elevation gain. There are a couple steep parts, but overall it's very gradual. It's rated Moderate because of all the different types of terrain you will cross. Right at the beginning is a pretty thin path where one side is a pretty steep drop down the canyon. There is also a huge rock formation you must go over at one point, and a pretty steep S curve around the 1 mile mark.
One thing I wasn't expecting was the humidity. It was a normal Utah day about 85 in the valley, the trail goes right along a creek which is so pretty but the trees overhead form an arch and hold in the humidity from the river. It was so hot and made for a super sweaty hike.
There is a rope swing about 1.25 miles in which we stopped at, because it would be only the halfway mark to the waterfall. Saw lots of butterflies, a snake and some gray squirrels. I'll try this again at a later point and see if the humidity abates a little. Beautiful hike, I wouldn't take super young kids.

This trail is ....maybe better for hiking or trail running. There is little shade until you get further in, then there is some. Having said that, it gets beautiful once you get a few miles in....... great views of the valley.

My only complaint is that people aren't cleaning up after their dogs. It's a beautiful trail with plenty of shade on a hot summer day. It has a lovely stream you follow on the way up, and a fun rope swing.
