Adams Canyon Lower Falls

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.
Lower Adams Canyon Waterfall Hike

 

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.

Tom’s Rating:

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.

Enjoy the views at Kaysville East Mountain Wilderness Park

Tom’s experience hiking at the Kaysville East Mountain Wilderness Park:

The Kaysville East Mountain Wilderness Park is a well maintained park with trails running through it. The trails weave back and forth and you cover very little distance on this hike.

However, the oak trees provide great shade and even though you are just outside of the city, you rarely see buildings.

There is a shooting range right next to this park but the shooting range is closed some days to make for a more peaceful hiking or biking experience. This trail is more popular with bikers than hikers and we hiked past a number of bikers.

East Mountain Wilderness Park

The trails for biking looked really fun with a few ramps set up for excitement. The trails go wild in the park but there are signs that point you along the main loop. You can follow that path or create your own. The main loop is about 1.7 miles roundtrip if no detours are taken.

Also since there are so many different trails it could be easy to get lost. However the mountains and the city give you a general sense of where you are. There are a few primitive camp spots and a few benches along the trail.

The trail begins on the north side of the parking lot after you walk by the large sign. Dogs are allowed on this trail. There are toilets at the trailhead.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: The trailhead is located at 1588 East 650 North in Kaysville, Utah. To get there head along Highway 89 until you reach North Mountain Road. Continue north on North Mountain Road and it will change to 650 North. The trailhead is at a dead end on the west side of the road. There is a giant sign for Kaysville East Mountain Wilderness Park so it is hard to miss.
