Great for kids! There was a lot of green areas. Very easy. But hard to get to, the road is closed, so just get out of the car where you parked and walk to the trail head. The walk to the trailhead is about five minutes. I would highly reccomend this hike.

beautiful hike, go early, it got super busy on the way out. recommend you start 7am at the latest. Tried to go to upper, next on the list.

Summit attempt yesterday. Turned around at the knife edge before the base of the summit. Just too warm up there and the snow was too soft at 10-11 AM. Post holing will be a problem from now until it melts off. Trail to the lake is good but be prepared for snow the last mile.

Super beautiful hike, it’s so green right now and lots of wild flowers! The first bit is sunny switchbacks but after the lake there is more shade. The last part of the hike is steep and rocky and quite the workout, so plan to work for the view. The waterfall is awesome. Saw a rather large rattle snake there today so watch your step.

Went up Cherry Canyon on 5/30. All the way to outlaw cabin, went up the north ascent to lone peak about half a mile or so and turned around. Still snow, maybe doable but not worth it since I was by myself. Great hike, it is a beast of a trail, I descended dow trail of the eagle. Bring lots of water! I consumed about 2.5 liters and wish I had a little more! You could easily take some from little willow creek however as it is pure run off right now. Logged 13 miles and 5300 feet of elevation gain. Was about one mile short of the summit. Not for the novice, come prepared, water, water, food, sunscreen and a I can do it mentality!

Beautiful scenery the whole way up. Catch a sunset at the top, absolutely stunning! One of my favorite SLC hikes.

We had planned on an easy 2,5 mile hike and it was beautiful but this was anything but easy. The non stop uphill over rocks was grueling. Constant step ups. Took us 4 hours because we got off the path a bit. The waterfall was beautiful and felt so good after the long trek up. I wish markings were better about where your going to and what to expect. Glad we had no kids with us for this one.

Trail gets a bit lost in the multiple tributaries from snow melt (at the meadow) but we found it after 5-10 minutes. The boulder field, as mentioned, has snow but it's passable (though caution is advised because it's easy to punch through). I'd recommend giving it a week. Also, if you can help it, never go on a Saturday. At least a billion people heading up as we ran down.

Easy and short trail to bring kids. Beautiful waterfall.

Super awesome hike. The creek is raging right now, and the trail stays close to it most of the way. Both upper and lower falls were flowing heavy too - beautiful stuff. The meadow was serene with little tributaries running all over the place - probably my favorite part of the hike. As of today, 5/29/20, snow starts on the trail about 4.5 miles up but it is totally manageable in trail runners. Once you hit the boulder field it gets a little sketchy with deceptively unstable patches of snow - caution here is advised. Pretty much a wet slog through slush once past the boulders to the reservoir. I, for the most part, stayed above the reservoir to the south and had some impeccable views of lone peak and all the surrounding mountains. Fantastic!

This was a pretty simple hike that anyone would enjoy. It was a bit crowded and there really isn’t a good area for parking at the trailhead. The waterfall was beautiful! Would recommend bringing some sandals and clothes you do t mind getting wet so you can enjoy the cold water on a hot day.

Great kid friendly trail.

I, for the most part, stayed high and made it from south of the reservoir with some impeccable views of Lone Peak and all of the surrounding mountains. Fantastic!

Great hike!!! Its beautiful right from the trail head.

Too much snow right now. You can’t find the trail.

5/29/20 Four out of five stars because of road. Still a lot of deep snow off of the road. The road to the campground is closed until July 20, which will add a couple of miles each way. The snow is deteriorating and sloshy. Beautiful area. I think the dirt road is a great place for training above 8000 feet.

Exposed. Best just for sunrise sunset. Not much worth your while otherwise.
