Nice, easy, short hike. Not sure why there were multiple “difficult” signs posted.......it’s a mountain-there will be an incline-nothing difficult though.

It is not kids friendly. There are a lot of wild animals. We’ve seen snakes ( small and big), baby deer, hears, squirrels. The waterfall is real ghost in July.

Was nice, but no falls. My kids were mad. We also followed the wrong sign. But I had fun. Lots of biker, but they were all nice.

this would be a great trail, but mountain bikers ruin the hike. they are all over and don't care to look out for hikers. my wife was hit twice in one hike.

Really pretty views from this hike. Great shade along most of the trail. Some wildflowers and so easy to get to. Lots of people on bikes, everyone had great trail etiquette. Would be great for trail running as well!

Fun quick hike with my girls. The falls aren't much to see, mostly covered by plants. For a while we thought we missed it. There were signs all over to watch out for poison ivy...

Nice and easy. Felt more like a nature walk with a few high steps here and there, but nothing serious unless you're looking for it. I would definitely bring family and kids along. The trails are clearly marked as well, so there shouldn't be any confusion. We went on a Wednesday and the overcast was perfect. Even on a hot day, most of the trails are shaded.

Great hike!!!! Went today which was overcast and perfect for the hike. Definitely going to take the kiddos next time

my first time hiking here it easy trail to walk and enjoy.

Very fun hike and easy with my toddler on my back. There are a lot of mountain bikers so watch out! And there are quite a lot of snakes on this trail, non-venomous and venomous (rattlesnakes). I’ve been 3 times in the past week and have seen at least 3 snakes on each visit. Beautiful Mother’s Day today with my little boy and husband seeing all the wildflowers.

I’m not sure what trail we were on, my boyfriend and I just parked by Hidden Valley Park. On the stroll with our dogs we passed a trail that said dogs allowed so we followed it. According to a stranger on my Instagram post we were on Bonneville Shoreline Trail and said dogs aren’t allowed. However, I can assure you, while there were a few signs saying no dogs allowed on specific trails, we did find one that said they were allowed on another one. It was a beautiful hike, I’d say pretty easy. Lots of kids, runners, bikers and plenty of dogs. I think it just depends on the trail you go on, so be sure to keep walking further until you find one that allows dogs :)

Hiked 4/26/2018. Saw two rattle snakes. It was a easy hike. I would go the same way I came in instead of hiking up then back down the driving path. But that way did offer great views just no shade.

Lots of bikers, small waterfall - still a nice little hike out with the fam.

Amazing trail for running on. The first part up Clark’s trail is a bit difficult but not too strenuous. There is a lot of shade covering most of the trail so it wasn’t too hot, even in the afternoon. It only took about an hour for me to finish the entire loop, so it isn’t too long.

Get ready to climb, this is a trail for those who hunger after ascending elevation.

Very exposed for a lot of the trail so bring protection and water. Jacob's Ladder is located in a protected watershed area so you'll need to leave the dog home for this one.

The views are absolutely stunning and well worth the effort required.

Runners and hikers should be aware of mountain bikers coming from the south, they like to full on send it down the descent.

Great hike BUT it was more like 5-6 miles start to finish. I did it with twin three year old because it said 2.5 miles but it was at least 2.5 one way.

Plan my day around going on this hike drive 40 miles it saids digs on leash when you get there it saids NODOGS. Very disappointing

BEAUTIFUL day for this hike! Trail was dry and although there were quite a few people out, we were able to find a parking spot in the tiny parking lot at the Coyote Hollow trail head. The major thing we immediately noticed is that NOWHERE at the tiny parking spot did anything say Ghost Falls as a marker to let us know we were in the right spot. Luckily a biker had just finished his trail ride and let us know we were in fact at the right spot. So, we took the Coyote Hollow trail and headed out... It wasn't until 0.8 mile up that we finally came across a trail marker that said Ghost Falls (see map recording). That was when we finally knew we were actually on the correct trail. From there it was 0.3 mile to the falls. Total hike up for us was 1.1 mile. The waterfall was flowing very well and we're looking forward to going back up again when all the leaves are on the trees to make it an even prettier experience! Wonderful day! (I hope this description helps other newbies to the trail find the trail head a bit easier).

Pretty easy going trail. I love coming to this trail via the BST, starting at Hidden Valley Park in Sandy. It makes for a good, long walk in. During the warmer months, it can be very busy with mountain biking traffic to watch out for.

For the hour I was hiking there, I didn’t see any other hikers. Plenty of mountain bikers. Careful to stay on the hiking trail, especially after the waterfall during the loop. I ended up in the bikers rush path and it’s very winding and muddy on that part. The views were gorgeous, ranging from rolling green hills, to desert rock and plants, to inside a forest of tall shrubs coming from off the waterfall and creek! So much variety in views and vegetation. I saw a section of poison ivy and poison oak just off trail at the waterfall area, but nothing on trail. This is the nicest kept trail I’ve seen, it’s so beautiful and definitely worth a morning hike! Not too long, and it had a steep portion, but overall pretty easy. Gets the blood flowing.

Easy short hike with lots of deer and bikers. The view of the valley from the picnic area was beautiful! There are a bunch of different trails throughout the canyon. Ghost Falls is a small stream that waterfalls down the side of a hill and we walked past it thinking the falls were further down the trail.

Easy trail with great views and lots of vegetation. Hike up farther past the falls for some amazing views of Draper and Salt Lake Valley! Trail is pretty muddy right now from all the melting ice and snow

This says it was dog friendly but the path to the falls is part of the watershed so dogs are not allowed. There are multiple trails from this trial head and some are dog friendly but most have signs posted saying no dogs allowed. We ended up just following the Bonneville Shoreline Trail for awhile because it was the only trail that allowed dogs.

Yes it was alternating between ice and mud, but it’s winter. I didn’t mind the grade and it’s pretty well signed to the falls. The falls are small but interesting. If you go in winter and there’s no poison ivy, you can crawl up past the falls to a bonus waterfall if you’re up for a little scrambling.

10/10, very muddy but the veiws (and fresh air) are totally worth it

Tough hike but great view of both valleys.

Great fun trail. A must do with a group. When we got there, the road was closed, so that added another mile to the hike. The hike was very muddy, but very fun. Make sure you use the app to know where you are. There are diverging trails and we got lost and had to backtrack on one of them. The view is amazing. Hardly anyone was on the trail besides us.
