I did this as a night hike so I didn't get to see the beauty of the falls. I do plan to go back again during the day. It's a beautiful hike. It seems heavily trafficked. Even at night there were a lot of people on the trail.

Did this hike this morning, there were a bunch of other families there but it wasn't too crowded. We loved it. The falls were very pretty and fun to get wet in. Very easy, short hike. Up hill the whole way there but down going back. I will definitely visit this place again.

I did this as a night hike and it was beautiful. I obviously couldn't see the falls but I was able to enjoy all of the other beauties that are in the area.

It's a pretty easy hike, not too steep. There's a spot, right before arriving at the falls that is steep but other than that it's not too bad. This is a very short hike if all you're doing is going to the falls and back; you're there before you know it. We hiked past the falls and there were quite a few pretty little falls in the creek as you got up. The view in some spots coming down is totally awesome. I'll plan on going quite a bit farther past the falls next time. Plenty of shady places so you don't necessarily have to go early in the morning. Dog friendly and plenty of places for the dog to drink as well.

This trail is really busy! I prefer solitude when hiking and I felt like I was in the line to magic mountain at Disney land when doing this hike. Also, it should be noted that the trail length is wrong on here. It currently says this is 1.8 miles. In reality it's 0.70 miles. The trail continues up after the falls and gets more difficult if you're up to a challenge. About two miles farther there is some great camping and trails that connect to either dry canyon (head south at fork), or Indian springs/ grove creek (head north at fork). I used this trail to head up to big baldy and camped on the saddle overlooking the city. There's a lot more water access this way than if you head up the dry canyon route, but this trail is the steepest of the three. This trail was very busy so don't come here to get away from things. The falls are nice, but not spectacular. I wouldn't do this trail again, except to pass it on the way to the more backcountry trails below timp. If you are using thus trail to loop from another trail I suggest coming down this trail not up because of how steep it is.

This was a nice short hike for me and the girls (6 & 3). It was a little steeper then I had thought it would be but not bad. The water fall was great. Probably would not do this one again but it's definitely worth going at least once. According the my GPS it was only 1.53 miles out and back.

Mother's Day 2014. Great day for hiking up to approx. 9400'...lot of clouds and it snowed on me. I was a bit disappointed in the "falls." With everything I had heard of it I thought it would be bigger and I got to it much sooner than I thought I would. Great hike tho; 2 1/2 hours up and 1 1/2 hour back down. Got a photo of a deer which was exciting - my first big "game" photo in Utah. Very thrilling experience as a whole.

Great family hike. Short and easy. The falls are about 50 feet high, and you can enjoy the mist from water at the bottom of the falls or you can continue up to the top of the falls. Battle Creek Falls has the most water during the spring runoff, and is a popular place on the weekends. www.yourhikeguide.com

Busy to the first fall, take the kids and enjoy the view. If you continue up the trail you finds a few other smaller falls and a split in the trail, you can continue up battle and switch back all the way to the saddle of big baldy, or you can hit the right and go to Curley springs (eventually dry canyon), ad hit up the saddle from that side. There's a lot o water up this side, it's beautiful and fairly steep. Places for hammocks and tents all the way up. One of my favorites :)

Beautiful falls and a great family hike. Not too strenuous and reasonably short. Hot and dusty trail, but near water most of the way.
