Good family trail

I'm giving this 3 stars and I'll tell you why. First of all, there is no actual trailhead with signage. We drove up and down the road for about 20 minutes using the app directions and no trailhead in sight. We then asked a ranger who informed us that there isn't an actual trailhead, but there are 2 sort of trails, an upper one and a lower one. By the time we thought we found what looked like it might be one of them, we were tired and discouraged. Maybe another time.....

We enjoyed fabulous views with sightings of several families of big Horn Sheep! lots of young ones that made me a little nervous for their safety on the step cliffs, but I'm sure they know what they're doing!
At the end of the trail you are rewarded with a beautiful and fantastical photo opportunity!

Just a quick walk but a beautiful little spot.

Great trail for individuals or family biking, jogging, or walking. Flat, paved, well maintained by the City of Spanish Fork. Follows the Spanish Fork River and adjacent to some beautiful farmland. Very accessible and lots of shade. We've hauled our bicycles from another city to ride on this trail several times and have also walked most of the route. Restrooms available at either ends in Spanish Oaks park or by the ball fields. Really nice urban trail.

This was a great hike, beautiful scenery and going into the lava tubes was something I will never forget.

this is an amazing hike.

Smooth ride, very straight and level for the most part. hooks up with legacy trail for a little while in Farmington, then splits apart in Centerville. Scenery varies from city, to suburbs, to ranches and farms and back again. lots of streets to cross which slows you down a bit. very well kept!

It was a easy fan trail, and incredible view all around.

Great little spot! Shady and near a stream.

July 2018 - The trail is in two parts, there is the paved trail along the bottom caynon next to Provo River. Well maintained as part of the Provo river trail, many parking lots, and food trucks. The trail to go up the to the mid-point of the falls is pretty skech in places. Very narrow in many parts, and loose shale rock everywhere. There are a few places where the the trail has clearly been wiped out by rock slides and is a little puckering for the less then fleet of footed. There is also another option to get to the mid-point, climb the falls themselves, lots of loose shale rock, water, and steep.

So beautiful and peaceful! I'm planning to take this little trip again.

this was a beautiful hike, one of my new favorites. the terrain is pretty, lots of trees (and good amounts of shade) a few meadow areas to walk through. a couple steep parts but most of the hike was gradual and manageable even with a 2 year old in a carrier. the view at the end is completely worth it. leaves haven't started turning yet but I imagine it'll be gorgeous when they do. it wasn't crowded even on a Saturday. we did see a moose (running off on the side of the trail) so be aware. also we didn't see very many bugs or butterflies. mostly clusters of grasshoppers but nothing annoying really. my 2 year old would have liked to see more butterflies.

Amazing drive.. very rocky but a stock SUV can make it. Air down your tires.. Lots of OHV traffic. The views can’t be beat.

Beautiful hike!

Awesome hike with low traffic even late morning on a Sunday. The trail markings are awful though! You take Timanookee trail for about a mile and a half, cross a stream, and take a left at the fork right after. Shortly after that you will start climbing rocks that get steeper towards the top and then you are there! I took a 4.5 and 6 year old with me and I don’t think I’d do that again with those rocks. The falls are very small right now. Overall nice, pretty hike!

A very good trail for almost every skill level. It gets a little steep for the last 1/2 mile. The entire trail is very well maintained.

Hiked this in August with a healing ankle sprain. Fairly easy with beautiful views. Highly recommended.

Great trail. Steep at the beginning, but it levels out and you get some nice meadow views of Timp.

This hike was all uphill on rocky terrain. I went with my two kids on a Saturday in August. My seven-year-old enjoyed the challenge, but my four year old had a hard time with how steep it was. The views at the top were stunning!!! We decided to come down using the trail going around the side of the mountain that meets up with Blood Lake trail. That was a much easier trail (less slope) and the lake was beautiful, but packed with people and dogs. I would definitely do that loop again!

I enjoyed this hike. It is really exposed so it’s hot...make sure you bring lots of water.

Went on a Saturday in August with my family of four, including a four-year-old and seven-year-old. We got there at 6 AM, so we got on the trail before anyone else, but on the way down it was like a conga line going up to the falls. The trail was beautiful and the falls were pretty. We didn’t let the kids do the scramble up to the top off the falls although I did and enjoyed that little challenge at the end of the trail. The rest of the trail was great for both of my kids.

Fun little hike with interesting destination that my family enjoyed exploring. Google maps took us exactly to the turnoff from main highway and minivan had no problems with gravel road. There's lots of cow pies, and a few cow trails it may be easy to get sidetracked on, but you can see the rock formation in the distance from the parking area/trail head, so you should have no trouble. Great hike for a family or young scout group.

Obviously an easy hike. Didn’t do it though. Must park in parking lot and there is a $7 fee.

Decided to do this hike with my two boys (8 and 10) after camping at the Spruces the night before. The boys complained about the incline going up from Brighton, but overall it really wasn't bad and was a great hike that I knew my boys could survive.

I love this trail. Trail has slight incline most of the way but I think it's a good trail for everyone. Only downside is its a very busy busy trail, it's best to come early to avoid collisions.

Love the hike. Fantastic view and kid friendly.

super easy trail, great for older folks and little toddler legs
