Bell Canyon features two waterfalls within a 4 1/2-hour round trip. The upper waterfall, seen here, is found by reaching a large boulder and taking the left fork in the trail. Photo by Nate Carlisle.

A 20-year-old man was rescued from Bell Canyon after falling from the lower waterfall.
The 20-year-old man was hiking with friends Saturday when, about 5:30 p.m., he slipped and fell 45 feet from top of the waterfall into the water, said Unified Police Detective Jared Richardson.
The man appeared to have only suffered a cut to his chin and head, and was flown to Intermountain Medical Center as a precaution, Richardson said.
