just did this hike today. (have done it before) Was surprised how low the water levels were. My husband and I both used Run Keeper to track the hike. According to RK - it was NOT 1.8 miles, His said 1.4, mine said 1.33. (this was after the complete trip. Still a nice hike. just not the almost 2 miles we were going for. :)

Maybe it was just wrong timing, but it wasn't as beautiful as these pics! The hike was a good short intense, but maybe I will try going during the summer when the leaves grow in! It just seemed very ugly compared to the other hikes I've been on! Will come back again!

Great little hike to get the kids out of the house and out in nature. Pretty busy, but the trail is wide in most places allowing plenty of room to work around fellow hikers.

I hike this trail often in the early morning before heading into work. It's a nice little trail, just steep enough to get a decent workout, but not to kill you.

Easy, short hike that has an impressive waterfall to reward you at the end. The last .1-.2 miles were pretty steep, but the rest of the hike initially is mostly flat and easy. You're able to get right underneath the falls, and you can also continue along the trail and head right next to the crest. This is a great hike to take the pup along with, as they'll love the water at the falls. Took me 35 minutes roundtrip. Moderate cover along most of the hike. Trailhead is easy to find, plenty of parking, and trail is well maintained, although there is some washout of the trail near the very end ascending to the crest.

Came up Dry Creek, topped Big Baldy then descended into Battle Creek. Fun hike with excellent views of Timpanogos and South Valley, when the air is clear enough one can see Mt. Nebo and Deseret Peak as well. We did this during the fall season, and the colors were nothing shy of amazing and spectacular. The Battle Creek side would be great if pressed for time!

did this trail with my daughter as we were pressed for time and wanted a short hike. very nice trail with a beautiful stream and waterfalls. if you go early, there are not many people. Wonderful before, especially on the way back out. highly recommended if you can't hike very far our if you don't have much time.

Really liked this trail with the dogs (all dogs on leash). Went midday on a Friday for a quick stretch of legs as we drove through. Only saw four other groups (couples, families). Lots of little paths at the beginning to go on adventures. Be sure to wear sun protection, stable shoes and bring plenty of water.

A very pleasant simple hike with a bounty of wildlife and water all the way through. A little too busy a trail for me & the dog, but plenty of off-trail jaunts to escape the general tourist streams
