This gentle creek-side walk explores the beauty of the deep canyon setting. During the spring runoff the creek swells to a raging torrent, which makes for an exciting walk. Completely paved to improve accessibility for persons with disabilities, this short trail follows Big Cottonwood Creek to a small waterfall. Rushing water drowns noise from the highway and maintains cooler temperatures along the canyon bottom. Interpretive trail signs along the way provide an enjoyable learning experience for visitors of all ages. Even though it’s barrier-free, it’s still a moderate climb for wheelchairs.

This trail is paved and runs adjacent to the creek. It is paved for ~0.75 miles and offers a great chance for anyone to get outside and enjoy the sounds of water running over rocks. Would be a good place to enjoy nature with older/younger folks who don''t want a physically challenging adventure. The TH is minutes from the city and I found the area to be relatively free of litter for such a high use area.
