Lisa Falls, where a sparkling mountain stream spills over granite, is as small and beautiful as its name suggests. It’s a relaxing, quick stop on a drive up the canyon if you have a few minutes to spare. Tucked away from the highway, secluded Lisa Falls sprays a cool mist of water on hikers who venture to the north side of the rugged canyon. The falls slide over smooth granite walls; these walls also are appealing to rock climbers.

Hike was easy and really dry. It is only a .2 mile hike or so. Careful too, we saw a rattle snake near the trail...first I saw in Utah my whole life. Oh and the water was still cold.

This trail was not well marked, but is about 4.2 miles down the canyon from Snowbird's Cliff Lodge. If coming from the Cliff lodge, you'll see a small parking area on the right side with several arrow signs indicating a sharp curve as the road curves to the left. A great little hike! Really nice waterfall. :o)

This is a very short and easy hike. We stopped here for a quick hike before heading further up Little Cottonwood Canyon. It's a nice place to stop for easy access to a waterfall.
