From SLC head south on I-15, take exit 275, then head East. This will put you on Pleasant Grove Blvd. Turn right on W 200 S St. and drive across State St. W 200 S will then turn into E 200 S - stay on this until you reach the very end of the road, where the trail begins, and there is a Kiwanis Park. No fees or permits are required. No restrooms are available.
Parking lot for both Battle Creek Falls, and the "G" Mountain Trail.
Battle Creek Falls trail begins up the old, wide dirt road pas this gate.
Official trail sign.
The trail is about 15 ft wide - about 5x that of a normal trail. As you walk up this road, you don't hear or see any sign of water. This throws some people off - keep hiking and you'll reach the stream. The trail slowly narrows to a more normal width, and you'll cross one bridge.
About 10 minutes into the hike, you'll pass the small dam.
A pretty purple "Monkey Flower". This was named after Meriweather Lewis of the Lewis & Clark Expedition (The Latin name part, not the monkey part - that was Carl Linnaeus). Monkey Flowers are typically found in moist places at higher elevations. You can see that raindrops still remained after the rain storm from earlier in the day.
After 15 minutes or so, you'll see a small trail that splits off to the right, which leads you down to the base of Battle Creek Falls.
