The hike is easy, we clocked it at about 3/4 mile. The only mildly difficult part is right at the falls itself. Once you get to the falls there is a sign that states you shouldn't go any further due to it being dangerous. If...More

What a great afternoon adventure. First off, I’m not a hiker… but, I’m trying! My sister and I decided to take a couple of hours (honestly that is all it takes) and go see Donut Falls. Google Maps takes you right to the trail head....More

This a great little place off the beaten track. Nice little hike (but quite a steep rise at first before levelling off). Doesn't take long through, with some beautiful scenery along the way. Nice and cool when we went. A little scramble down towards the...More

This is a moderate hike that doesn’t take too long. The trail is in and back. There is parking right off the main road, but if it isn’t too crowded, you can drive in a little farther and park right next to the trailhead. The...More

On the hiking app it says this trail is easy for beginner's how ever this was not as easy as we thought. But it was so worth the hike. Make sure to add this to your things to do in Utah.

My friend took me and my 5 year old daughter, and we both enjoyed it. It's not to steep, so the 5 year old walked most of it, and once we got to the waterfall, she was excited and went barefoot in. I would suggest...More

Fairly easy hike, nice trail and a waterfall at the end! Bring shoes that you can wet, its pretty tough to keep your feet dry, not impossible though. The waterfall was beautiful and totally worth the hike and wet shoes. We spent about 2 hours...More

My husband and I wanted to do something outdoors that explored the nature of Utah. Looking through one of the Utah attraction booklets from the hotel, we decided on Donut Falls. I GPS'd our way there, however it said we arrived, before we actually got...More

This is a very well used trail, but worth the hike. You WILL get your feet wet if you hike all the way to the waterfall, but it was so worth it. One tricky spot where you kind of slide down a rock to get...More

I hiked this in the summer and again in the winter (snowshoeing), both equally fun! Loved every minute of it and the view is fabulous and different with the difference in season

The cave is at the top of the falls. During the winter you climb your way right to the top as the snow covers the falls. You have to crawl into the cave. I've not been there in the summer, but I imagine there is a trail that... More
