Gloria Falls is a BEAUTIFUL, easy & short hike up Little Cottonwood Canyon. If you are hiking to Red Pine Lake, it is an easy detour as well & well worth it. Last year we went both in the Early Spring & then in fall time & both were super pretty! Family friendly hike, at just over 2 miles. Wonderful views & a nice final destination. In early spring there was TONS of snow, sometimes I sunk hip deep into it 🙂 Fall was super pretty with all the colors!
