My first AllTrails trail! Me and my 3yr dog did it in a span of about 2 hrs 45 minutes. we are both pretty out of shape it was the first hike I have done in about a year and it was pretty difficult for me . It's fairly steep on what seems to have been an old Service Road. There were only two people we saw the whole time and that was on the way down. The view of bridal veil Falls was really beautiful to look at, however, this Trail itself wasn't anything too exciting and we probably won't come back to this one.

When you get to the bottom of the falls, it's tough to actually find the trail head. All you'll see is a sign stating that you will be proceeding at your own risk.

The hike to the upper falls is actually very short. Just beware that the trail is not clearly marked. I ended up taking an extremely difficult way up when I didn't have to! If the trail starts looking like it's becoming more of a climb than a hike, you probably went the wrong way.

The view from the top is breathtaking. Totally worth it.

Not a "hiking trail" at all. It's a paved bike/skateboard/pedestrian path. The falls are certainly beautiful! It was honestly disturbing to me to see all the families allowing their young children to scramble up the rock slide towards the falls. Some were only wearing flip flops/ sandals. The slide is not stable and I'm unsure why folks think it's a good idea to climb up. Aside from that, a nice evening stroll.

This was a super easy hike. We tried going up the dirt path to the higher part of the falls, but turned back because we didn’t have our gear with us. The falls were beautiful!

I agree with what others have said about the end of the hike being a let down. However, right before you get to the campground, there is an overlook that is quite impressive. If you're hiking during spring, be aware that the trail may become more muddy the higher up you go.

Overall was a very amazing hike. We were only able to get 3.25 miles from trailhead as we ended up running into the snow fields. Took us 1 hour and 40 minutes to hit this point. Gained 1761 in elevation and maxed out at 8685 ft. Snow is very slick and without appropriate gear it ended our run to the summit. It will likely be some time before it is passable without any micro spikes or other appropriate gear. There is a 50 ft waterfall that was quite beautiful to see as the snow continues to melt. The only advice I will throw out there, not being from the area is that it costs $6 dollars to park and hike for a three day pass. Make sure you bring cash. Not sure if this is active so be sure to inquire. Would recommend this hike.

Not really worth it. The trail takes you along a fence line and most of the trail is actually more of a straight line, uphill service road. That plus the close proximity to the highway make it a very ugly trail. The Creek was neat and the view of Bridal Veil Falls was great, but the waterfall was a real let down. It was just a small trickle and we were there in the spring.

Not bad for a quick and brisk hike. Most of its paved if you start in the park. When you get to the trail head it does go straight up. The falls are amazing and well worth the climb. It is very rocky so wear the right shoes and take your time.

this trail is ranked easy but if you are overweight and/or out of shape, this feels like a death march. it is literally up hill, both ways. but I didn't die...

The scenery was beautiful and I really enjoyed this walk/hike!
I wouldn't classify it as easy, however! Probably more easy-moderate only because of the rocky terrain.
There is a paved walkway to get to the actually trail, the incline isn't super intense and the trail itself is short so I can see why they would classify it as easy. Just be forewarned, the trail itself really is not that easy. It gets extremely rocky! If you have knee problems, or are not comfortable scaling rocky terrain, you'll have to take this trail slowly. It definitely can be done and I'd say it's worth it! Just give yourself more time to complete it than you might think you'd have to for a short trail.

Curley Springs is meant to be a loop trail that can start at either Battle Creek Canyon or Dry Canyon in Lindon and make a loop upper then back on the foothill trails. My goal was to take my external GPS and track it for All Trails so they could revise this trail and show it as the loop it was meant to be. Not sure what happened but even though I downloaded the map and had lots of satellites connecint my phone to GPS, as soon as I made it up from Balltlecreek canyon to connect with the trail my dot locked up, and I got lost coming down. a little frustrating that Google maps worked better than this. Anyway here are my pics and cons of making the loop like I did.
Pros: I liked the variety of scenery. In Battle Creek Canyon you get to walk along and cross the river and see the Gorgeous waterfall. Then you head up in the hills and it is lots of growth. I was kinda glad I was doing this trail so early in the Spring for the trail might have been harder to keep track of with more growth (but then maybe it will also get more traffic?). There was a few times I wondered.if I should turn back because the trail was a little tricky, but your just walking along the Ridgeline for much of the time so if you stay close to it you should be close to the trail. Surprisingly when I got to the top where the All trails ends is the easiest section. (If you are trying to find this trail from the Lindon side take the right fork close.to.the end and the watch for another right fork. That is where I entered the trail. ). This was a beautiful section with amazing views of the valley. I thought this section would be the easiest, but there are so many different trails going so.many different ways that I ended up so far off from my Target. It would have been fine if my All trails would have worked, but ...

Easy hike. Google Maps also has a marker for where the trailhead actually begins; we missed the real trailhead the first time we trekked the falls and ended up scrambling up the slickrock at the base of the falls, which I wouldn't personally recommend because there aren't many stable footholds. The actual trail is well-maintained and mostly a steady incline to the base of Bridal Veil Falls.

Pretty but the end of the trail is kind of a let down visually. Overall a good hike, but i wouldn’t do it again

Catching up on some reviews, so recognize that this was done mid-December. Seriously such a cool hike. We were the first ones to go up after a small snow fall, so fresh tracks all the way up, although it was a little slippery at parts. Falls were half frozen, which was also neat. Not sure about the traffic or conditions during summer, but this was a great early winter trek.

went up to the camp ground last summer. I'm pudgy and slow, but I enjoyed it very much! wear tall boots, saw a couple of rattlesnakes closer to the camp ground.

So that hike is only good for if you want to go up a steep steep mile! The falls aren’t even falls! We were freakin lied too. I was deceived by the pictures that are featured. Those aren’t the falls. The falls featured are called Bridal Veil Falls. The water is barely trickling down the rocks.

Beautiful in the snow! Will bring the kids next time, the dog loved it.

Perfect for a long run/bike ride, beautiful views if you start near the canyon where 189 meets 800 N (there is parking and a trail head here. Paved sidewalk the whole way with bike lanes and run/walk lane. Will definitely return. Not really a hiking trail.

Super steep but great views. Rock Sofa at the top is a must! Fun short hike. Watch out for rattle snakes

exhausting, but amazing view.

All dry today, we were disappointed.

Pretty icy, wouldn’t recommend doing it without cleats and maybe some sticks.

Fun to hike this trail

The views get old after an hour but like others said it’s a good little outing.

We took our bikes on the FrontRunner from Salt Lake City to Provo and entered the trail from the riverside park. We went past the Shops at Riverwood at Orem, turned around and got the FrontRunner from Orem and went back to SLC.

Kinda boring to be honest. It’s almost winter time, so come by on a Saturday to walk through the construction to get to the hike. The creek is pretty, but the falls at the end are literally water trickling down rock slower than my fridge puts out drinking water.

It’s a great easy hike past Bridal Veil falls, until you get to the house with the graffiti. From there its a short, steep, rocky uphill trail to the falls. Very pretty though

12/10 just for my favorite ducks

There is no trailhead sign that we saw. The concrete building with graffiti on it is the start. We parked in Bridal Veil Falls parking lot and went there first. Just continue following the pathway about another 0.5-0.75 miles further to the upper Falls trail. It's super short. We did it in 10 -15 minutes up. There's a lot of loose rock which could be difficult for younger children. We went up in the afternoon around 2pm. It was unseasonably warm for beginning of November. There was no one else around so we had the Falls all to ourselves.
