Hard hike, but cool at the top.

Tough to find....... well worth it:))

Beautiful hike! Lots of scrambling up the rocks

Took our dog on this hike. It is really short, which is what I wanted because we didn’t have much time. The waterfall isn’t spectacular, and the trail isn’t really kept. Honestly, it doesn’t seem like a real trail. It starts behind a small structure on the paved trail above the parking lot. Apparently you’re supposed to pay to be there - not loving that part. There is an envelope where you put the money in.

Super easy walk to the falls. Great hike if you have little ones!

Rocky and not a pretty trail, old atv trail.

Easy walk to view the falls.

Very pretty during the fall with some great views. The trail gets a little rocky and loose but overall it was fun and short.

Not a kid friendly trail! this was tough, took me a second to find it and then it was exactly a nice hiking trail. got to the top and wasnt that impressed. nice to waste time but the trip down was rough. the rocks were loose and even my dog had issues.

Awesome trail! To go to upper falls, drive on to that parking lot. After crossing the bridge you have a choice. If you go right you will see the building with graffiti. This is the main trail behind the building
. If you go slightly left instead you will see the pink ribbon trail. This is a lot less steep and rocky. Much easier.

Late Fall weather has the colors on the mountain popping! The weather and temperature was as perfect as it could be. Cooler in the morning, but warming quickly. Dark clouds loomed over the mountain most of the day, but we received no rain or snow.
From Aspen Grove it took us 4 hours and 15 minutes to summit. Winds on top were calmer than usual, only blowing small rocks.
Our 1 year old mix breed pup loves the hike, and hasn’t had any problems with his feet on the rough terrain.
The trail had lots of good people on it today.

This was an amazing hike. My 4 & 6 year old even hiked straight up the waterfall to the pool where the main fall lands. Incredible views, very fun, and did this while holding my 2 year old in an ergo. *I wouldn't recommend everyone attempt that, but I feel pretty confident in my hiking abilities.

My brother-in-law did the same with his and there 3 & 5 year old did great too.

Was a quick, somewhat steep climb to a subpar waterfall. Drunk people hang out at the trailhead (there's a ruined structure covered in graffiti).

Great “hike”...love it though. Great break from the everyday Provo landscape.

Hiked the longer option from Nunns park. Good option if you are looking for a longer workout.

Multiple trail options. I went up to a trail just above where the map track go up that seems to be well used. I came down a trail marked with pink ribbon that is not a very good trail.

The pave path most of the way makes this a much less strenuous hike until you get to the trail. There are many rough trails up marked by trail signs. I took the most eastern (up canyon) trail near the picnic table. It seems to be the best trail from what I saw

Was fun to hike as a kid. We would do it at night so it was not as hot. The morning was very cold until the sun came up. At which time we had hiked to the silver shed on top. What a beautiful view of Utah valley. I will never for get coming down the glacier and enjoying the ride to Emerald lake. Was a lot of fun with my brother and friends.

amazing hike. it was 17 miles though... def not 13.9. beautiful, great weather, great trail. loved it!

So hard but the views were worth it!

This wasn’t a bad hike. It’s definitely not kid friendly so I wouldn’t take your little ones. If you don’t read the description make sure to follow your map. It is easy to get confused. I enjoyed it but won’t do it again..

We went up last Saturday. We hiked the first hour or two with headlamps because we started in the dark. Plenty of parking when we got there and a steady climb with breathtaking views all the way up. Managed to find some mountain goats. The only two complaints I have are the amount of people and that you have to hike just short of a mile across a boulder field-it hurts your feet! Will be trying the Timpanogee trail next time.

beautiful falls and shaded paved trail to the base of the falls. just pass the falls there is a bridge to the left with port-a-potties..to the right of the bridge is the safest way up the falls. it is dirt narrow trail that then turns to gravel and rock. Very narrow all the way up but not strenuous. Just nerve wracking that you could slip! We took our 12 yr kld daughter and I was so afraid she would slip. people were carrying babies and toddlers and i think they were nuts!! once to the falls it ia gorgeous and fun!

Best Utah county trail. A must.

Good, simple hike. I followed the All Trails map and did the first turn off to go see Bridal Veils fall (be carefull, steep and loose rock) which was awesome to see. Then the pup and I got back on the trail towards Upper falls. The trail is all cement until you reach the trail head for both waterfalls. The Upper Falls trailhead will have a cement structure with graffiti on it, like other pictures have shown. The trail alone was nice. Slightly steep (by no means bad at all) and some loose rock, but worth the short hike straight up to the falls. Made for a great and simple morning hike. Like in my other reviews for other hikes, I got there early t avoid people (I was there around 7:45am or so) and by the time I got back to my truck the lot was packed and people everywhere.

Great hike! The last bit before the top is steep. Bring water because there isn’t any when you start getting higher. Great views down rock canyon from the saddle. I went over and down through rock canyon. The trail gets a bit confusing as you come down through the camp sights, but follow the signs for 060 and you should be alright.
