Easy-Peasy Hikes in Utah

Meredith & AJ aren't big hikers, but their kids have been asking to go.  We found this list of easy hikes.

Hidden Falls - Located 4.4 miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon, you'll park inside the "S" curve and head across the road to the north. You'll more than likely hear the falls from the road. This 0.25 mile roundtrip hike has an added bonus — an old gated mine entrance.

Lisa Falls - Drive up Little Cottonwood Canyon 2.7 miles, and you'll see a small parking area on the left side of the road. Park here and start the 0.45 mile roundtrip hike to Lisa Falls, where the water cascades down the quartz monzonite rock. The rock around Lisa Falls is also a popular spot for mountain climbers.

Rocky Mouth Falls - At 11330 S. Wasatch Blvd. in Sandy, you'll see the parking area for Rocky Mouth Falls. Be sure to park in the Rocky Mouth parking lot and not on the street. The trail to this waterfall actually leads you through a neighborhood before beginning the actual trail, which is located between two houses. Follow this trail to the falls.

Battle Creek Falls - If you are looking for a little more difficulty, this 1.6 mile roundtrip hike is it. Located at the east end of Battle Creek Drive (200 South) in Pleasant Grove, this 50-foot waterfall is a great reward after your hike.

Bridal Veil Falls - This well-known waterfall is the largest and easiest one to access along the Wasatch Mountains. Drive 3.8 miles up Provo Canyon and the falls are just 100 feet from the parking area. There is even a pool at the bottom of the falls stocked with hundreds of rainbow trout. You can feed them fish food from a vending machine for $.25.

The Grotto - Located 7 miles up the popular Nebo Loop in Payson Canyon, this easy 0.6 mile roundtrip hike leads you to a small, cave-like waterfall. Footbridges cross over the ankle deep water as you make your way to the picturesque Grotto.
