Tom’s experience hiking to Lisa Falls:
The trail up to the waterfall is very short, about .11 miles from the parking area. However, the trail to the falls is pretty steep.
You must cross the stream to get to the waterfall so either wear shoes that can get wet or be prepared to jump across rocks.
It really wasn’t too hard to keep your feet dry on this hike. The waterfall is pretty neat and has at least two tiers.
The river itself is also very pretty as it flows along the granite rocks. You can climb up to the top of Lisa Falls if you climb up the left hand side as you are looking at the waterfall.
It isn’t too difficult but it is dangerous. Dogs are not allowed up Little Cottonwood Canyon or on this hike.
Trail Info: The Lisa Falls trailhead isn’t marked but isn’t too difficult to find. At the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon you will drive up canyon for 2.7 miles. There will be a small parking lot on the right side of the road and another small parking lot on the left hand side of the road. The trail starts on the left hand side so if you can park there thats awesome. The trail is pretty easy to see. When we went it was pretty crowded and easy to find.
