Hiking to Rocky Mouth Falls

Rocky Mouth Falls is a very easy walk that can be reached in about 10 minutes, and is located just above the east side neighborhood in Draper, Utah. Because of its short distance and little elevation it’s a great “hike” for kids or families that aren’t up for a big adventure. This trail is a little different in that you have to walk through part of the neighborhood to reconnect with the main trail.

 

From downtown SLC, drive south on I-15, then take I-215 East. Take the 6200/Wasatch Blvd exit, then follow Wasatch Blvd as it pass the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon. From this intersection drive for 2.2 miles and at the light that splits off for Little Cottonwood Canyon (straight), veer right to stay on Wasatch Blvd. Drive another 3.3 miles. You should see the LDS Church on your right, and just after the church, on your left will be the Rocky Mouth Falls trail head and parking. There is enough space to fit about 6-8 cars; if that is full you can park along the road. There are no restrooms.

Distance: 0.6 miles RT

Elevation gain: 186 ft

Time: 10 minutes – 1 hour, depending on stay at falls
