Tom’s experience at Adams Canyon Lower Falls:
Adams Canyon Lower Falls is a much shorter hike than the longer Adams Canyon hike that still leads to a beautiful waterfall and a small pool you can play in.
You park at the same parking lot as Adams Canyon and Adams Cabin and hike up the same sandy switchbacks. After 10 switchbacks the trail will level off and the main sandy switchbacks will be over.
At this point there will be a few trails that take off to the right and head south from the trail you are on.
Take any of these three trails and they will all lead to the lower waterfall. The trail is a little steep and rocky right before you get to the falls but it shouldn’t be difficult for a fit adult and it is easy to help children through.
The waterfall is about 20 feet tall and you can walk around it and stand behind it staying mostly dry. The pool is about a foot deep and great for playing in but not deep enough to swim in. There are no bathrooms at the trailhead.
Its a great hike for dogs since they can play in the water and cool down at the end but they must remain on leash.
Adams Canyon Directions: From US 89 take a right on N. Eastside Drive. Follow Eastside Drive to the trailhead. The trailhead has some parking but it usually fills up quite quickly forcing others to park on Eastside Dr.
