Lovely views. 8.5 mi full loop, or 5mi out and black to Sly Park Falls, or your choice of distance along the north side.

If you do the full loop, you'll have to walk along the street for a quarter mile at the start or end.

The waterfall is artificial and not always running, and can be nearly impossible to reach when it's snowy as the drifts pile up high in that area.

Parking options include the $11 boat ramp lot, $5 dirt parking along Mormon Emigrant by the plaque for a north side hike, or free if you catch one of the few visitor parking spots at the main entance off Sly Park Road. By the second dam along Mormon Emigrant is best for a 5 mile out and back waterfall hike.
