A fantastic little loop hike. I was in the Ogden area on vacation and did this trek. The falls are impressive but due to the time of year were very low. I plan on coming back in May or June to see the falls in full force.
I did this loop and had a great time but the trail gets a little confusing once you've scrambled up the waterfall canyon. This is an intense but amamzingly beautiful trail that I highly reccommend.
The enterance into the waterfall canyon is not as descridbed by the guide, it is the first canyon you come to heading south from the 29th street parking, you may have to hunt for the trail in, don't stay on the dirt road, work towards the canyon from the start. The trail up to the falls is ok, after that there is quite a bit of scrambaling and climbing to do. Beware of rattle snakes, we saw 2. The hike down from the peak is easy- a good trail with a series of steep cutbacks. I would recommned that the loop be done in reverse, going down through waterfall canyon. This way the trail is easier to follow and the assent is less steep although it is still a failry long steep hike, just no scrambling or loose footing to deal with. Given the nature of the final part of waterfall canyon I would not hike this in the rain as the rocks would be very slick making for treacherouse footing in dangerous spots.
