As others have said, this is a great hike. If you just go up the trail on the right side of the creek, which is I think the correct side for this trail, you reach a waterfall in just over a mile of walking through the woods with the creek running alongside. There is a sign saying "End", which is kind of a clue that you are done. As mentioned in the previous review, the creek is running very full right now, but I had no problems staying dry. I think the AllTrails description above, talking about the trail on the left side of the creek, is for the Log Hollow hike, which does not go the same way, and is considerably longer.

This is an absolutely beautiful hike! Took us about an hour to get there from Salt Lake. The directions from All Trails took us right there. There is a parking lot and there are 2 restrooms. The trail starts in the middle of the parking lot and heads left. Because of all the snow we got this winter the creek is crazy full. We couldn't get to the end of the trail without walking through water. There were also quite a few places where the trail was obscured by fallen trees and you either have to go around, over or under them. It was shady almost the whole time and my 6 and 9 year old did great! We also didn't see very many people, about 5, the whole time we were there. We will for sure be doing this one again.

Gorgeous views, smells, and sounds. Pack a picnic and enjoy!

Not a very interesting trail and we didn't see anyone! It was good for dogs.

Not sure why it's rated moderate. It's an easy hike. The trail is pretty and the first part runs along a neighborhood. There are a couple of places where the trail splits but it isn't marked to tell you which direction you're supposed to take. I don't know if it all loops back together but it seems like it might be easy to get lost if you don't have a good sense of direction.

Did this hike today with my wife who is 7 months pregnant. Great hike, very gradual elevation gain and great for all levels of hikers. The creek and waterfall are beautiful. All of the downed trees have been cut and cleared within the day or two. There were still about 4-5 places where the trail was covered or mostly covered by water but you can get past them using logs and rocks and stay basically dry depending on your balance. We had a great time and we will definitely be returning to hike this trail again.

A beautiful and isolated area near "Kamas." I'm rating this trail highly
because of the sense of scenery and feeling of escape offered in an underrated part of Utah. Hiker "beware" though, the trail is full of fallen trees that can be difficult to traverse and some areas also covered with water; which will require your feet to get wet. The trail needs to be more maintained. Other than that it is a very nice and quite. Me, my baby(on my chest) and my wife were able to get through the trail barley with all it's troubles. Another family did turn around during our trek. We were determined to finish the trail and will want to revisit in the future for its positives. Some or most may want to turn back with all its obstacles.

Great trail! Walked thw boardwalk with two seniors, two adults, and two kids (6 and 3) all of whom could walk the trail easily.
very sunny and quite a few mosquitos so don't forget the sunscreen and bug spray. Beautiful view of Provo River.

The majority of the trail parallels the main road so it's not the best hike if you're wanting to get away from traffic noise.

The runoff from the mountains has created a swift flowing river which blocks the trail to Fairy Forest right now. We'll be back in a few weeks to try again. Hopefully by then the water level is lower and passable. There were a lot of disappointed kids and families today.

Nice uphill venture.. always solitary if you want to really get away from everyone
