Hike Bell Canyon

5 Miles Total - 1517 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Hannah Stewart

Once you get to the very top there is a waterfall with an amazing view of the valley. The hike the beautiful and fun the whole way!

There are two different ways you can get to the first reservoir the entrance in little cottonwood is preferable. Some people stop at the reservoir but going all the way to the top waterfall is amazing. The hike is a bit strenuous once you get towards the top but it's all worth it.
