Upper Battle Creek Falls, Utah

I’ll refer you to Battle Creek Falls for more information about which trails to follow. It is a really nice waterfall in the Salt Lake City area close to Provo. The hike to the lower, larger falls isn’t too difficult to hike to. I had read that there was another smaller waterfall upstream and so I decided to keep hiking along the trail.

Upper Battle Creek Falls wasn’t an additional difficulty to get to, except for the added 0.4 miles one-way on the trail. If you enjoy hiking, I would say continue to the Upper Falls. If you are limited for time, I would say skip this waterfall. This falls is only 5′ or so feet tall, though looking at pictures, I realized it’s enchanting! It’s a photogenic waterfall, even though it is smaller.


  1. The easiest way to navigate to the falls is to find the intersection of E 200 S St and S 1500 E St in Pleasant Grove.
  2. You will continue east along E 200 S St along a short dirt road to the parking area.
  3. Find Battle Creek Trail No. 50, and head northeast along the trail. After 0.5 miles or so, you should reach Battle Creek Falls. Continue along for another 0.4 miles to find Upper Battle Creek Falls.

Accessibility: 5/10 (moderate)
Height: 5′
Length of Hike: 1.8 miles round-trip
