Explore the family friendly Lisa Falls

Tom’s experience hiking to Lisa Falls:

Lisa Falls is a multitiered waterfall up Little Cottonwood Canyon in Salt Lake City. Lisa Falls Hike

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.

Salt Lake City Lisa Falls

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.

Hike Lisa Falls

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.

Lisa Falls Salt Lake City

It isn’t too difficult but it is dangerous. Dogs are not allowed up Little Cottonwood Canyon or on this hike.

Tom’s Rating:

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.

Enjoy a short hike to the hidden Nemo Falls

Tom’s experience hiking to Nemo Falls:

Nemo Falls is a less visited waterfall on the Road to Hana. I really enjoyed this waterfall but it is a little difficult to get though.

Nemo Falls Maui

It is about 1 mile round trip but the trail is very slick in multiple parts. You start off along a paved path that heads uphill pretty steeply.

Nemo Falls Hawaii

Eventually the trail levels out and you come to a narrow footbridge with a handrail over a waterfall.

Nemo Falls Hana

Cross the footbridge and then take an immediate right and scramble across some rocks up stream towards the waterfall.

Hana Nemo Falls

The rocks can be very slick and you must crawl under and through a few trees. This will lead to the waterfall and a small pool.

Maui Nemo Falls

The trail is on EMI property and there is a danger of flash floods.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: The trailhead to Nemo Falls begins at mile marker #23.6 along the Hana Highway on Maui. There is a small parking area that will fit maybe two cars and the trail starts running parallel to the Hana Highway up to a gate.
