this is a pretty trail but very overgrown. its definitely a good idea to wear pants. there arent many people, I didn't see another soul the entire time. didn't quite make it to the top because of the weather, but I'll be back :)

this was a great dog friendly summer hike considering the abundance of water and shade.

It's tricky to find the waterfall--when you cross a pretty big stream, turn to the left and go about 200 meters up a hill and you'll see the waterfall. There are no signs for it! Really nice trail! Not totally flat, some moderately uphill parts. Pretty purple wildflowers, sage and pine scents, and quite a bit of shade at 3 pm in the afternoon.

I loved this trail! Definitely would do it again!

This was a fun little walk and much less crowded than I expected it to be. There are a few little creeks to wade across and the falls is fun.

The road is open, trail is clear, and the view is beautiful!

beautiful trail, great to do with kids, good infrastructure at the trail head.

This is a beautiful trail. My wife and I backpacked in about 3 miles. In order to get as far as we did we had to walk through the creek a couple of times. the current wasn't bad for us but it would have been to strong for small children. The first time we walked through the creek was probably about 2 miles in. Most of the trail before that though was fine for kids with some trail experience. This has been an abnormally wet year so it is possible that in dryer years you could hike the whole trail without getting your feet wet. When we arrived at the Bear Canyon camp ground we decided to park near the entrance to the camp ground. There is parking right by the trail head but when we arrived most of that parking was taken up by vehicles belonging to campers. We hiked this trail as an out and back. the trail does end at the Nebo Loop highway, but there is no reason you couldn't hike to the highway then turn around and hike back to the trail head. Having my phone with the All Trails app was helpful. There were a few places where it wasn't immediately clear where the trail was but we were able to reference the app which showed us where we were on the trail, even though we had no cell reception. That is probably a feature that requires the paid subscription, which we got for dirt cheap on black friday sale. Also, bring bug repellent.

Beautiful!

No one below really covers that this is a through hike , not an out and back , if you park at the mt nebo trailhead to the north on nebo loop, then park another car at the salt creek in bear canyon campground “which is group only btw drive through to the top right and park without paying.” If you start from the “end” it’s mostly downhill! But look to your north west behind you to catch the break away to the falls. Also this is a wet one so if you are packing bring sandals ! The current is strong atm so I’d say no little kids. There are a lot of packers who camp too close to the trail, just bugs me I guess. Very pretty and some great spots !

A fun trail and a great excursion. I would dare to say that this is even better then Bear Canyon.

Great hike with lots of water! Not to mention the amazing smells from all the wild mint along the creek.

We did this hike as a last minute choice after taking a scenic route from Zion area towards Salt Lake City. We originally thought this would just be a nice place to stretch our legs - but holy crap what a beautiful hike! Alpine forest, snow capped peaks, fast moving water fed by snow melt streams, tons of wild flowers and a pretty waterfall. All packed into an easy hike - even with a couple of stream crossings and some recently downed trees. And we had the trail almost exclusively to ourselves. Highly recommend it.

Gorgeous this time of year. Does require a few creek crossings, including a pretty good one to follow the trail up to the actual falls. Would advise a good walking stick to cross that one.

We took our little family there over Father’s Day weekend and it was awesome! Kids 6, 4 and 15 months handled it like champs! Perfect family hike and awesome formation! I would recommend this hike for anyone look for a cool hike off the beaten path.

Snow is pretty much gone on trail now (June 1st). Several small creek crossings before getting to falls. A couple pretty falls up high from canyon snow melt. Traces of avalanche shoots along some spots trail.

A good hike when you don’t want anything to hard. It was rainy the day I did it but it was still a blast!
