Battle Creek Canyon, Pleasant Grove Utah in 360 Degrees



BATTLE CREEK CANYON 

Pleasant Grove Utah in 360 Degrees



This falls is a great family hike, and the kids love to stand under the 50 foot falls and get wet.  It is also a favorite for those learning how to rappel.  There is often people at the top repelling  down the side of the waterfall.  To get to the falls, you take the Pleasant Grove Utah exit 275. Turn east, and follow the road up to 100 E in Pleasant Grove.  Turn right to 200 S, then turn left (east).  Follow the road all the way to the top where there is a parking lot, and the trail head.  The hike starts kinda dry and hot, but it as soon as you get up to where the water is not piped in, it gets greener and cooler.  It is only about 1 mile up to the falls, and there it is cool and a delightful area to explore.  If you have more time, you can hike past the falls, and right off the bat you will see 2 more pretty waterfalls, and keep going you will find 9 more waterfalls.   The hike above is steeper but if you go up about another mile there is a spot where the river gets wide, Rocky and very shallow.  There is a sign here and there is a trail that heads over to Dry Creek via Curley Springs Trail.  If you go from here up about another half mile it gets a little steeper and narrow, but you end up coming to a T in the trail.  The right side heads to Baldy or connects also with Dry Canyon.  The left side gets up to a dirt road that you can drive all the way out to American Fork Canyon.  I usually walk the road for just a little while and then head off on a small trail through the meadow that heads down Grove Creek Canyon, and right by Indian Springs.   This canyon was named because a tribe of Indians used to live up in this meadow.  Some skirmish happened with the Indians and the Pioneer settlers and there really was a battle between the two that happened at Battle Creek Canyon.   It is a beautiful canyon with spectacular cliffs, beautiful waterfalls, and a bonus that you are very close to the river almost the whole hike


What people might not realized about Battle Creek Canyon is how many waterfalls there are along this trail.  Most just go up to the big one, and don't realize there are 9 waterfalls in less than the first 1.7 miles of the trail.  My challenge for you can your family is to head up and see if you can complete this scavenger hunt to find all 9 along the trail. All waterfalls I could see from the trail.
