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.

Family Friendly Lower Adams Canyon Waterfall

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.

Discover the hidden Indian Bathtubs waterfalls

Tom’s experience hiking to the Indian Bathtubs:

The Indian Bathtub trail is a beautiful short hike in the mountains above Farmington, Utah. The trail is short at about a mile round trip but the hike up to the bathtubs is very steep.
Indian Bathtubs Woods Cross

The trail follows the Davis Creek up the mountain to a large waterfall. The trail is easy to follow and covered in shade, and there are a couple of rope areas that can be fun for children as well as adult kids.

Indian Bathtubs Waterfall

As you drive up Little Valley Road you will see a retention pond with a trail sign on the right. Park here and hike about 30 yards up the road until you see a small turnoff. There is a sign that says Davis Creek in the trees as the trail starts to climb steeply uphill. This is the trailhead. The rest of the trail is well marked with trail signs.

Trail to Indian Bathtubs

When you near the top there is a nice bench you can sit on to watch the waterfall. Continue on and you will reach a sign that points to the Indian Bathtubs. From here there is one steep section that was muddy when we did it but it had a rope tied among roots to help climb up. This leads right to the waterfall.

Hiking to Indian Bathtubs

Along the right side of the waterfall you can climb along the cliffs by holding onto the chains and rope that has been placed there. You can also get to the bottom of the waterfall but this requires a little climbing and I had to get pretty muddy.

Indian Bathtubs

In Spring the water is running pretty quickly so it wasn’t a great area to swim but in the fall when the water slows down that might change. When you have had enough you can turn around and head to your car or you can continue up canyon on another one of the numerous trails. Dogs are allowed but clean up after them.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: To get to the trailhead, drive to Little Valley Road in Farmington. You should be able to plug it right into a GPS and be lead right there.
