This trail is pretty dangerous. I actually hurt my ankle coming down. It's not a well established trail. You are hiking along the river so it's steep and extremely soft, unstable dirt.

Amazing!

Excellent Views make the bouldering WELL worth it!

I absolutely loved the Alpine lake!

Definitely one to add to the List if not already on there!

:-)

Has always been my most favorite hike! It’s definitely a challenge but well worth it! It’s very steep about half way up, which makes it almost harder to come down! Make sure you have good griped shoes and PLENY of water! Definitely depending on the time of year you do it of course! I did it for the last time last year 8months pregnant and then again this year for the first time 8months out! LOVE IT!

Great trail!
Lake is a great stop for photos.
Saw one rattlesnake.

Loved this hike! The views are amazing and you get rewarded with a reservoir. We recorded 15 miles in and out. Bring extra water. Maybe there are different trails? Regardless - it’s awesome!!

This was a really fun hike. The beginning was very very easy and a little boring. After the reservoir it gets more challenging. the trails aren't marked too well. the last .3 miles are very steep, but really fun and challenging to climb. The falls are amazing and well worth it. There is a large Boulder shelf that you can stand on and take a picture of the valley as well. I would recommend going in the morning, about 7, traffic is very light and usually faster more athletic people are there. It was really busy around 930 is with novice hikers

Loved it!

Beautiful sceneries, well-kept trails, be prepared by using your stair master. If you don’t think you can make the waterfall, don’t risk it, but I believe in you. If you’re not climatized to the altitude, take it slow.

Beautiful! It took us some searching to find the trail once it split from the Red Pine/White Pine trails. It is right next to the largest man made bridge. It follows the creek up the hill. Very overgrown and you have to maneuver around brush and trees, but that makes it more secluded.

Hiked this on a Saturday morning with decent foot traffic at the top of the ridge overlooking Red Pine before the final traverse to Pfeifferhorn’s summit. The trail from trailhead to Red Pine is pretty typical, but one of my favorite hiking destinations. The trail including summitting Pfeifferhorn is one of the hardest hikes I’ve done.

Once you start the summit though, be prepared to use your hands and arms just as much as your legs to get up the summit with it being an extremely steep climb. Then take a good rest at the top and look around at the back side of Lone Peak to the west, Timp and Box Elder to the south, White Baldy to the east, and Twin Peaks to the north.

The climb down off the summit is worse than going up, because of the slope and how much loose rock there is. Also, my legs were a bit wobbly already from the climb up even with using my arms a bunch, so going back down with all my weight on my legs made them feel even...better?...

Overall, I was in good shape and still needed from 7 am to early afternoon to get this one done, including lunch at the top.

One of my favorite hikes in Utah, absolutely beautiful the whole way up!

Great little hike if you’re a lone adult with a small army of kids. Short, sweet, and water adventure at the end.

Wonderful views. Trail not well marked above Red Pine Lake. Got lost, hiked an extra 1.4 M

The view is definitely worth the last mile uphill. Just make sure to wear decent shoes and go when it's not 97 degrees out like I did. Pretty tough hike but that waterfall at the end is magnificent

Great trail for kids. The first set of stairs are rather daunting (for young kids) and you have to pay attention or you miss the trailhead within the neighborhood (it's only about 2 feet wide between two fences so it's easy to miss the first time), but it is a lovely hike. It's shady for most of the hike, even at noon. And having water to play in at the top is always a plus, especially with kids.

Great hike, took me a little over three hours to get up there but once you are at the lake it is unbelievable. Nice scenery and wildlife on the trails as well as around the lake, they started draining the lake today so if you are going go right now or by the end of the week.

Great hike. Took the love of my life❤️

Great hike. Took 9 year old

Pretty though.

Our family loves Lisa Falls, but it is very disappointing that people have tagged the rocks. Very disgraceful!

It is a pretty steep incline the whole way, but very short. My 8, 5, and 3 year old managed well. The top of the hike near the waterfall is shaded and pretty, but you can hardly call it a waterfall. After a dry winter, the fall is barely a trickle, unlike last year. I would recommend this hike in the spring when there is more water.

Small hike to the falls. Beautiful and lots of shade. Enjoyable.
