Water
Steep Uphill to Split Falls
by SparkyJackie

Likely In-Season!
Just east of Pleasant Grove Utah, there is a very scenic 50 feet tall waterfall on Battle Creek. The waterfall is only a short hike of about 1 mile up the canyon. This is a great hike for everyone in the family. If it is a summer day be prepare to play in the water.


Route Information: Battle Creek Canyon was the scene of an Indian battle with settlers during the winter of 1848-49. From the parking lot you will follow a road for less that half a mile. The roads ends and the trail starts on the south side of the creek. Cross over a footbridge to the north side and start a steep climb, with steep drop-offs the rest of the way to the waterfall. The waterfall is located approximately 100 yards after the footbridge.

Allow about 15-20 minutes hiking time to the waterfall. There is a small trail that leads to the base of the waterfall from the main trail. This small trail is steep. The base of the waterfall is the best photo opportunity because the entire waterfall is visible. The main trail continues to the top of the waterfall where you can watch the water split and fall in two ribbons. Some people like to rappel down the waterfall between the two ribbons of stray during the summer.

The main trail pass the falls and continues up the canyon for several more miles toward Mount Timpanogos and connects with the Great Western Trail. From the Great Western Trail you can hike a loop down Grove Creek Canyon or Dry Creek Canyon.
