Waterfall Canyon
Waterfall Canyon
Ogden, Utah, United States (9.6 miles away)
Easy: 2.8 miles, 1-3 hours
Beautiful and rather easy hike going up to eventually see a nice strong waterfall (during spring).

A very nice hike into Waterfall Canyon. This is a pretty easy hike for the most part. I know that kids and such are able to make it up rather easily. As long as you go during the spring you'll get an awesome view of the waterfall at the end of the trail as well as a rather nice, albeit slim view of the city down below.

I have personally gone up there 3 times now but it's not the hardest hike I've done. The cave has been visited by lots of people. There are a few spots that you could hurt yourself in there,...

A great hike to a spectacular 40' waterfall! The last 25' to the waterfall require you to walk through the river and you will get wet. Water shoes are recommended if you don't want to hike down in wet shoes.Our family hiked this with our kids ages 9, 7, 5, 3 and a 1 year old in our baby backpack.

There is a 200 ft waterfall at the top. It is a steep, but short and quick hike. I parked in the lot at the end of 29th street. I believe you can get to the waterfall from 36th street as well.

Adam's Canyon Hike
by dallinhardy on Aug 04, 2012
Layton, Utah, United States
Hiking | 4.7 miles (3.2 miles away)
The hike is a little difficult at the beginning with some sandy switchbacks. It is mostly smooth sailing until the last leg of the hike. Getting to the waterfall requires some rock crawling and agility. It is well worth the effort to make it all the way to the waterfall. A little ways into the hike there is a detour to the river where the is a little waterfall. Some hikers miss...

2012-10-14 Adam's Canyon Hike
by yiwen on Oct 14, 2012
Fernwood Hollow, Utah, United States
Hiking | 1.9 miles (3.2 miles away)
Saw a few photos of Adam's Canyon last week on KSL.com. Thought this week the fall colors should be prime. Indeed it was a great hike to see such beautiful color in Adam's Canyon. The water in this time of the year was perfect, not too much so we could easily cross the river near the waterfalls area. Adam's Canyon is indeed an "Autumn Wonderland" for spectacular fall colors.
