about Donut Falls Trail:
The Donut Falls Trail is an easy hike on a fairly level trail. In late 2004, about one mile into the hike, the trail was closed to the public since that portion of the trail was on private property. The area around the falls was purchased by Salt Lake County in 2007 and the popular trail is now open again in its entirety.
Don't just concentrate on the destination; the beginning section of the hike is nice too - especially during the wildflower bloom in mid-to-late July.
Salt Lake City watershed restrictions apply in Big Cottonwood Canyon. If you're unsure of what the rules are, visit www.fs.fed.us or www.slcgov.com.
Travel up Big Cottonwood Canyon Road (7000 South Wasatch Boulevard) 9.3 miles, and look for the Mill D Trailhead sign. Hike or drive south on Mill D, South Fork (a paved road), passing the Jordan Pines group picnic area. After the paved road ends and a dirt road begins, hikers should look for a second trailhead. Leave the dirt road and follow the trail.
