Come and hike up to this beautiful Utah waterfall.

Donut Falls is a popular, well-known trail in Big Cottonwood Canyon just outside Salt Lake City, Utah. The trailhead is located 9 miles into Big Cottonwood Canyon. When you reach the end, you will see the iconic waterfall through the opening of a hollowed-out boulder. This trail is great for families with young children who are just learning to hike, but it is not wheelchair accessible. It is common for youth groups to gather and share a box of donuts after completing this hike.

There is a parking lot on both sides of the street, and restrooms are provided at the trailhead. During peak season, hikers should avoid parking their cars along the road leading to the trailhead. There is hardly any elevation gain, and the pathway is mostly clear, with some rocky points and a few bridges. At the end of the trail, there is a pond at the end of the waterfall. Because the trail is so far into the mountains, the water is quite frigid year-round. There is a rope to the side of the waterfall for those who want to swim, but use caution and only swim during the hot summer months.
