Excellent trail for a nice stroll, run or bike ride. Today, I biked it from Vivian Park to Utah Lake State park. It only took a few hours -- it's pretty much all downhill. It's a great trail to hit for a workout while enjoying nature.

Easy paved trail along the Provo River but the waterfall at the end of the trail is worth the hike. Be prepared for a busy trail though

it's a pretty difficult hike that isn't all that pretty. it's just straight up on a gravel path for a while. it's worth doing it at least once while you're in Provo, but if you want better views and hikes consider going up slate canyon and hobble Creek.

This hike amazed me! I began at sundown on the 4th of July and got to the peak at about 11 PM. My goal was to shoot a time lapse of the fireworks. I loved it even though I got there a little late to get the best of the show! 2700 feet to the top is no joke! It is uphill for about 90% of the hike up, but it is not as bad as it sounds! I highly recommend this hike!

Here is the fireworks time lapse I made from the peak: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MX-RrUnv9tw.

A great hike! The trail is definitely overgrown about 3 miles in, as others have said. Watch out for stinging nettle! All 3 of us that did this hike got some on us. Beautiful views from the summit and a really green and pretty hike once you get past the ugly and steep Y trail.

Spring looks like it's been capped and goes through a pipe. During higher runoff water could come out an overflow pipe. Good trail

Fantastic hike. Our GPS clicked at 7.5 miles vs the 7.0 miles AllTrails indicates.

Also, lots of people said it was between 2 hrs and 2 hrs and 30 min hike. I Don’t think that’s realistic unless you run part/all and take no breaks.

Our total trip was 2 hrs 50 min. We hiked fast up with almost no breaks, took a 20-30 min break at the top, and jogged the way down anywhere it wasn’t steep (14 min miles on way down). For most hikers, I would expect this to be 3.5-4 hrs.

Hiked this trail by myself yesterday morning from 8:30-11:30am round-trip with a few minutes to enjoy the view and eat a snack at the top. As the previous reviewer mentioned, the current vegetation/undergrowth makes the trail very hard to find in some places. If I hadn't hiked this before, I'm not sure I would have been able to find my way. Though the mountain is quite green, the wildflowers are mostly all done blooming by now. I think the hike is prettiest during the middle/end of June. Also, according to my GPS, the trail is actually 7.3 miles round-trip. Overall, I think it's a nice hike with some beautiful views of Timp and the valley. Great workout. Would recommend!

This was our first hike in Utah. We just moved here from New Jersey and this trail was a warm welcome to Utah. It was perfect for my 11 ya old daughter who made it to the top. My 9yr sold loved it too. Definitely bring some shoes for both hiking and water play for the kids. They had a ton of fun. Definitely will go back.

You can park just on the other side of the river from the waterfall if you want to shorten this trail.

I love this hike, but it is demanding. It’s straight up for a good bit of the way, but then opens to fields of wild flowers. Views are amazing and worth the work!

Did this hike yesterday July 8 just for the “workout” and it was a workout! Started at 12:30 pm temp was around 90. That afternoon it hit 103! This hike has VERY LITTLE shade. The going was normal until I got 2 miles into the hike where the vegetation had completed covered the trail. The plants were 3-4 ft high, it was like trail blazing in the jungle. I was the only hiker past top of the Y. I gave the hike 4 stars for the workout value. Best to go with someone who is familiar or it would be very easy to loose the trail.

Probably my favorite hike in Utah County. Great workout but not too hard. Nothing like standing next to that American flag on the 4th of July, overlooking the valley, blasting Springsteen on your speakers. That, my friends, is as American as it gets.

Beautiful! 5 and 6 year old did it with no problem.

My favorite hike so far this year. The rock formations are awesome, there is forest, meadows, butterflies, wildflowers, and the best view of the valley I have ever seen!

Went for an evening hike. Not a single soul but our group. First part is pretty steep, then turns into a walk along the stream. We crossed at several points, but that wasn't necessary. Saw a few snakes, so be aware of what's on the trail. Overall, nothing spectaculat, but still a nice getaway that avoids the crowds at other more popular trails.

Did this hike beginning of June. Started around 6:30pm from the Y trailhead. Booked it up to the top of the Y to catch up with some friends that left earlier. HOT AND SUNNY for that portion. Probably my least favorite hike ever, but what's beyond the Y is always worth the trek. Temperatures cooled down a lot once behind the mountain. Some parts pretty steep so watch your footing. Got to the top right before sunset. Beautiful view over the valley. Once the sun was down, the temperature really dropped. Glad I brought a jacket! Hiked down in the dark with a strong flashlight. Back to the car by 11pm. Giving four stars just because I hate the hike to the Y, and I think there are several better hikes than this that I would rather repeat. Worth it to say I've done it, though :)

This is a demanding hike. There are few if any switchbacks, but the stunning views, especially from the summit, are an ample reward for the effort.

Great falls. You can hang out at the bottom or hike part of the way up. I think this is a great Sunday pit stop after being on the road a long time. Not really a hike even if you do go part way. Maybe good for a date with a girl who doesn't like to get her shoes dirty but wants the social media attention.

This trail is pretty lame up until you get to the creek. Before the creek its a pretty steep slant with the only good view being behind you of bridal veil falls. However, once you start going up the creek (following the little cairns along the way) you can see some pretty amazing smaller waterfalls and river formations.

Stunning! Definitely worth going at sunset.

Pretty creek at the top, but not really worth the effort put in to get there.

I hiked this trail for the first time today and it has turned into my new favorite in the Provo area! It was just long enough and strenuous enough to give me a great workout. I started the hike at 9:50 am and I completed it in 2 hours 45 minutes with a 20 minute break at the peak. I passed a whopping total of 6 people while hiking up this trail and I had the peak all to myself. Because it was a Sunday morning it was not crowded and I was able to see plenty of wildlife. I ran into a snake, a couple of dear and I even saw some wild turkeys! ( at least I think they were turkeys....) Not too mention that I am pretty sure I died and went to butterfly heaven! So many butterfly’s and plenty of wild flowers in the meadows even for it being the beginning of July. There was ample amounts of shade from the tree coverage as well. A couple of other reviews mentioned the turn off to the left after bridge #5. The fork is not directly after the bridge but a little ways further up rock canyon trail. As long as you are looking for the turn off to the left you won’t miss it. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this hike and if I could give it 10 stars I would!

The wildflowers were beautiful as was the view. As previous people have said, don't miss the carin. My friend and I did and we ended up bush wacking up the side. Stay on the right side of the edge. We also did it from Slate Canyon. That was the prettier overall part of the hike though the views were better from Provo summit. If you have a vehicle that could drive up Squaw peak road, that would be the recommended route.

Very pretty but often super crowded. Great little adventure for young families as it is short, sweet, and the “reward” is almost instantaneous thanks to the large waterfall at the end :)

great for the whole family.

Started at the beginning near Utah Lake, the first 2 miles is very nice then the roots have made the trail bumpy from Geneva Rd to State street. The next section is boring until you get to the mouth of the Canyon I stopped a Mt Timp Park. It is very lovely there with full rest room facilities and picnic tables and grass to relax on. Quite a few people and dogs on the trail. I would recommend riding very early in the morning or on a week day overall a nice little ride

Took the trail today, with my small Maltese. He did great but there are a lot of people and other dogs so he was distracted. Make sure you take water, and watch your step coming down, loose gravel can be slick towards the bottom

I went with my 9 and 7 year olds. It’s an easy hike, even for kids except the last hill which is pretty steep and covered in rocks. My kids were still able to do it without problem, but it was slower on the way down because of the rocks. The trail head was hard to find. We tried our gps which took us to the wrong place, but then we opened up this app and we’re able to figure out where to go from there. The flowers were absolutely beautiful and the view was amazing! It’s a fantastic short hike.
