Whoa this hike was difficult. Being new to the area and still getting used to the elevation this hike kicked our butt. We made it though! The waterfall was absolutely worth it. Little purple butterflies everywhere it was picturesque. The way there was exhausting a lot of uphill and a couple areas where you climbed over rocks but nothing drastic. The way back was easy we flew back to the parking lot. Just a couple areas on the way down were steep and you had to be careful not to slip which I nearly landed on my back a few times if it weren’t for my skillz. Also when you see the bridge about a quarter of the way on the trail don’t go that way. We did for a while and had to backtrack. Which was dumb cause it should have been common sense to stay near the creek so we ended up on Bonneville which was a nice trail and cacti everywhere.. but yes if you see the bridge don’t continue on that trail. Good spot to take a break though! Bring lots of water!! And a snack/meal to reward yourself when you make it to the falls ;-)

trail running

was an easy walk. I could use the stroller, my son that is 2 could run around. didn't have to worry much of rivers. there are spots here and there my son liked to hide and play in. there were runners here and there.

I give this hike one star for several reasons. Very first thing is the trailhead is very difficult to find. There is no trail marker and the trailhead looks like no more than a small game path. Second the entire trail is very overgrown, lack of foot traffic and trail maintenance. This makes the trail very difficult to follow. We almost lost the trail entirely a few times, I would recommend long pants because you’ll be bush whacking most of it. And last but not least, the trail should be rated moderate/hard. It’s VERY steep most of the way up and the trail is mostly comprised of loose broken shale. .

Great hike.

Great trail to take the kids and dogs. Get there early!

Beautiful!

The first part of this hike is difficult due to the steep switch backs, then you get into the green and it is beautiful at every turn! It is steep in some areas with lose rocks, so go slow, and coming down was a bit scary. However I was doing this packing my 6 month old, so it’s possible. I’m a moderately in-shape person. Would not recommend this for young kids. It took my friend and I about 2.5 hours out and back while staying at the falls for a while.

Beautiful trail! Lots of trees to shade the trail. The creek runs along the trail the whole way. Great for dogs. The waterfall was the perfect end to this trail. If you want to go to the shoreline trail from there it is not accessible for dogs, it’s a steep rock climb up from the waterfall.

Great hike. Decently difficult, so come prepared. Really pretty views of the valley. Busier than I expected, but not too bad. I'll definitely be going again!

Great hike, amazing waterfall at the end but my shoes did get wet to see it.

Amazing hike! Beautiful the whole way to the water fall. I would definitely rate it as hard though. A lot of uphill scrambling over rocks and cliff like areas.

So pretty! Go early in the morning on weekday and you’ll have no problems with too many people.

This is a great hike with a gorgeous waterfall! Very popular with hikers.

Great hike. We got to see an awesome sunset on the way back down.

This trail is amazing- but SO heavily trafficked. There were so many people on the trail- we had to walk single file for so much of it just because we were passing people constantly. There were many dogs off-leash and dog poop everywhere!! In addition there were many mountain bikers tearing around like crazy. I’d go again, but very early on a weekday and without any children.

GO EARLY!

This trail is absolutely AMAZING...but everyone else thinks so too. We got there on a Saturday morning around 8:30 and there were maybe 30 cars. By the time we left a few hours later there were probably 150!

This trail starts of with tons of sandy switchbacks and it is challenging. I probably wouldn’t take my 6yo, but it quickly gets shaded and is a real treat the entire way.

Great hike and beautiful waterfall! Only downside was how many people were on the trail.. it was quite crowded.

Convenient hike for Davis County residents. Pretty. Good workout but lots of traffic - go early in the am.

This is one of my favorite hikes. The beginning where the switchbacks are is the hardest part. The hike gets easier after that. I would not recommend bringing upping children. I need one water bottle up and down. It takes about 2-2 1/2 hours to hike. Depending on how long you stay at the waterfall.

One of the best hikes in the Uintah/Weber County area. It's gorgeous once you're past the beginning switchbacks. If you're in good shape, it can be completed in about an hour + or - 30mins. This should not be rated hard. Malans Peak is rated moderate and it is much more strenuous. Great reward at the top. Water proof Hiking shoes to cross the creek is recommended.

Once you get past the sandy switchbacks - it doesn’t get much better than this.

The switchbacks at the beginning are rough but once you get past them it’s such an amazing hike. There is little to no littering and the streams are nice to cool off and enjoy. Everyone on the trail is always super nice and there are lots of dogs. It’s a really nice hike.
