Welcome to our Spring Hiking and Waterfall Hiking Season
WATERFALL Hiking Safety Tips and Hikes
Heugh's Canyon Waterfall
Hiking Ability: DIFFICULT
1765 ft. elev. gain
3.5 miles RT
Approx. 1.1 miles one way to the Boulders and to see the Waterfall.
This is a waterfall you are NOT up close and person with.
It's a waterfall you can enjoy from a distance.
If you like, turn around at the big boulder field after viewing the waterfall.
If you continue beyond the boulders, it gets much steeper.
This is an out and back trail.
You'll cross two streams before arriving at the boulder field.
There are no switchbacks to make this hike easy. Just continuous climbing.
An easier hike is also being offered at the same time and place, as an option for those who want a very beautiful hike without so much elevation gain.
8 AM: Start gathering, greet everyone, final instructions, news/announcements, arrange carpools, questions/concerns?
8:30 AM: Walk to the trailhead from our meeting place.
Our hiking group is:
Consistent: Plan on us every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. We rarely cancel unless something catastrophic happens, which hasn't in 14 years of hiking.
Full of Variety: In addition to 200+ day hikes each year, we offer several other outdoor sports, activities and trips you are invited and encouraged to attend. Examples include: International adventure trips, weekend getaways, kayaking, canyoneering, stand up paddle surfing, camping, Dutch Oven cooking, snowshoeing, backpacking, hooping, sledding, trampoline jumping, yoga, gardening, etc. Many of these are also offered as classes for those who have little to no experience. A price is required for most of these. Pre-meetings are held for some of these. All will be posted on this site OR my website at liveandthrive.com.
Accommodating: Come to any hike and talk with me in person or one of my assistants with any concerns you may have. We can help you customize every hike to fit your needs and abilities.
Experienced: Leading hikes every week for 14 years (since Feb. 2003) has allowed me to become very familiar with many trails in the Wasatch Mountains.
Safe: Safety is always our #1 priority.
Flexible: Even though you are in a group, you'll have plenty of options. Be social or enjoy quiet solitude. Hike longer or shorter. Go fast or slow. Stop and take breaks or hike like a mountain goat!
Fun: With incredible beauty in all directions and surrounded by great people we often forget about the great workout that comes with this sport.
Addictive: Warning, after coming a few times you may get hooked like the rest of us.
Friendly: New hikers attend every week and receive a warm welcome. Thank you in advance for making an effort to join us.
Caring: I look forward to meeting you in person and will help you have a great experience on the mountain. We attract many kind, caring people. Come early if you are new.
Free: No yearly membership fees required for any local hikes.
