Best Easy Day Hikes: Salt Lake City
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.
