Location
The 1,200-acre Hidden Falls Regional Park is located between the communities of Auburn and Lincoln, north of the Ophir/Newcastle area. The park is situated along the Coon Creek and Deadman Creek watersheds, located south of the Bear River.

Be Prepared
Hidden Falls does not have potable water for public or horse/animal use. Park users should bring plenty of drinking water for their visit, especially during times of hot weather. Cell phone service is very limited, and some trails are quite steep. Prepare to visit the park with proper hiking shoes, sunscreen, etc.

Maps
Please download the Trail System map (PDF) before visiting since cell phone/data service is limited.

During Rain or Inclement Weather
Trails are closed to cyclists and equestrians during and after rain events in order to maintain trail stability, permit drying, and minimize soil displacement. Reopening shall occur as soon as practical, given soil conditions. Notices of trail closure status are posted on our Facebook and Twitter sites daily. Please check for trail closure information prior to heading to the Park.

Keep It Nice
Remember, Hidden Falls is your park. Keep it nice for future users by:
  • Keeping dogs under control on a maximum 6 foot leash and removing their feces from the park
  • Packing out any litter you bring or find
  • Staying on trails
