Battle Creek Falls is a medium sized waterfall located in the foothills of Pleasant Grove, Utah. The hike has some great views down canyon, a small swimming hole and a pretty waterfall. A little over a mile, the hike lures local residents to enjoy the trail. Although popular with locals, its location is lesser known outside of Utah County.

The grade is steady with some steep sections around the falls, but thanks to its short length you will see all ages here. This waterfall and the trails navigating it allow views from below, alongside, and above the falls. You will want to be careful at top of the falls because of the sheer cliffs and slippery rocks. It is very easy to access the edge of the falls here, so stay alert with the young ones. Battle Creek Trail continues on well after the falls and links up with Dry Fork Trail. You can access the western face of Mount Timpanogos from this trail as well.

Dogs are allowed, but only if on a leash. The parking lot is very large but fills up quickly because of nearby Kiwanis Park and other trailheads.
