Doughnut Falls Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Doughnut Falls is unique—a waterfall that plunges through a hole in the rock and into a grotto before cascading down the rocky drainage below. It’s a short hike, popular with families and youth groups. If you want to climb to the top of the falls, you’ll face a challenging but rewarding scramble."
--Greg Witt, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Salt Lake City (Menasha Ridge Press).
"This popular local hike features an intriguing waterfall that plunges dramatically through a hole in the rock before cascading down the rocky drainage below. This short, refreshing hike skirts the Mill D South Fork Creek to Doughnut Falls, making it a popular destination for kids of all ages. This rugged little canyon, shaded with white, yellow, and blue spruce as well as Douglas fir, limber pine, and quaking aspen, is a fascinating location to visit and has much to offer families visiting the area. At the falls, water rushes from the small creek above into what appears to be a doughnut hole carved in stone. The water then splashes out below, cascading over the boulders and spraying a cool mist on visiting hikers."
--Greg Witt and Rob Witt, Best Easy Day Hikes: Salt Lake City (Falcon Guides).
