Pretty nice hike. Good scenery going up and the little waterfall is pretty. I can see why some people report the end to be slippery and dangerous. I think it all depends on the timing of when u go. There was some slightly muddy rocky areas, but the muddy spots were short and not that bad. At another time, they may have been quite a bit worse, I imagine if there had been recent rain.
One thing that I didn't care for with this hike is that it's the same trailhead as Timpanogos, so you basically don't feel like the hike is done as it keeps going and it's possible I didn't even complete it as there may have been a bigger fall further up. But at the base of the trail, it tells you that it's a 1.4 mile hike up, I stopped at almost 2 miles, but didn't feel like I really reached Scout Falls (it wasn't like in the pictures I've seen). That may be even further up. Took about an hour up and 35 min back down.

This thing absolutely kicked my butt. It's a really long hike, and has a lot of steep stretches that kill ya on the way up as well as on the way down. It's a pretty moderate hike up until the third time you cross the river and then it just gets steeper, more overgrown, and harder to follow do it blending with surrounding brush. Lost the trail a couple times on the way back down so be sure you make note of distinct features as you get higher up. Not for the faint of heart and give yourself all day so you can pace it out! Enjoy yourself!

Beautiful hike. Just strenuous enough. No kidding - it is pretty much straight up. Lakes are very pretty and well worth the effort. It is a well travelled trail but I didn't feel overwhelmed with other people. And you can certainly find some solitude around the smaller 2 lakes. Highly recommended! Count on 2-2.5 h up and at least 1.5 down. Spend a good hour or more taking in the lakes at the top before starting down.
