Hike: Battle Creek Falls

Battle Creek Falls Trail head is located at the East end of 200 South in Pleasant Grove, UT.

Our first hike of Spring 2016 was Battle Creek Falls. The trail head is located just to the south of the "G". It is a short well marked uphill hike to a few beautiful waterfalls.

This first one is about a 20 ft. drop. You can walk down to the bottom and go under it but we went in the spring so it was too cold for that. I've also seen people sit on that rock in the center of the pic but I don't recommend that. 

Here is the 2nd decent waterfall at this time of year. I say that because there may be more when the runoff increases. I know this one gets a little fuller. It is only about 3-4 ft. at the first drop. There are some large flat rocks just above it where you can sit and hang out before you hike back down the trail. This is also as far as I had ever been since we didn't know where the trail went from there.

This hike is great because you get a lot of bang for your buck. Short uphill climb to a great destination.
