About This Trail

[Total: 1    Average: 2/5]

Battle Creek Falls is a moderate 1.2 miles out and back trail. What makes it moderate is the shell type rock on the trail, it can be like walking in the sand at a steady incline and can be quite slippery on the way back down.

From the trailhead, just follow the obvious hiker trail into the canyon. The trail stays in the bottom of the canyon, along the stream, for most of the way, but it climbs up onto the bench as you approach the waterfall. You can easily hike down to the base of the waterfall, or continue up the canyon for several more miles.
You return the way you came in.

I’m Joey Johnson Branch Ambassador for Utah County. I’m happily married to Jory for 21 years and Proud Mama of two, Jack who would’ve been 12 and our rainbow baby, Jiraiya Dragon who is nearly 5. We’re from Utah but have lived in Arizona for 10 years and then New Zealand before returning to our roots when Jiraiya shocked us with his arrival.

We started hiking with Hike it Baby in May 2015 when I struggled to find a playgroup that we fit in. Within two months I became a BA for SLC but after all the driving back and forth from Provo I decided it was time to create HIB Utah County. The first 6 months was mostly just me and a friend but then they started joining us! Now we have an amazing group of regulars and we continue to get new faces all the time! I’m currently hosting twice weekly “Hike and Play Nature School”, my version or Forest Preschool but leans more towards unschooling, as it simply consists of Hiking and Free Play while parents try to stay as hands off as possible.

As my son ages out of HIB, I’m hoping to guide our branch back to it’s roots with getting Mamas and Babies out while offering hikes for families with school aged kids as well.
