Not too hard. If you are taking kids. Have plenty of water on hand.

Hiked this Saturday! My dog and I loved it! BUT- the sand on the first .75 miles is REALLY hot. Make sure you go early in the day or bring doggy booties (like I did) so your dog doesnt burn their paws! A little bit of rock scrambling in some parts but a great workout with water for my dog to drink, and the falls were gorgeous. And the shade was great! Just need to get past the .75 miles of hot sand and switch backs.

Great pictures and details on my blog!

Another great trail in the awesome state of Utah! The 'chairs' up at the top are so cool! I also hiked up to the very top of the ridge, which provided an even more astonishing view of the valley! I found it a little difficult at the beginning, just because there are so many trails, but it wasn't that big of a deal.

One of my favorite trails, Don't be scared off by the first part with all the switch backs, because once you get past that, the trail is amazing. Makes for some beautiful water pictures.

This hike is fantastic! The hike is pretty easy going, until the last 1/4 of a mile or so where you get to climb over rocks. It's not too bad, though! The waterfall is gorgeous!!! Also, this was my first time using this app and I was pleased that it led me straight there!
