Took 2.5 hours up, 1.5 down. Awesome view, sunset view beautiful!
Pretty difficult and trail uneven and steep and totally worth it! Spectacular views.
5 hours in and out with a bad knee. The first third was easy going along the bottom of a beautiful canyon full of all kinds of rock formations. The remainder is consistently steep without much view until the top. But the summit view is one of the best of Utah County. The valley below is truly awe inspiring. Great hike with some unique views - will absolutely repeat!
Would have been beautiful views, if it wasn't for the fog, and snow. It can be tough, but it's fun with plenty of beautiful views along the way and at the top.
I was not expecting this hike to be very difficult, but man, it gets super steep on the last half. The view is worth it though. Take water and snacks because you will want to stop at the end.
Little dry to begin with, lots of loose rocks.
Clearly marked trail, breathtaking views. Gets a bit steep at the top for a minute.
Well worth the climb. I would rate this as more moderate than hard. My watch clocked it at a bit closer to 9.0 miles tho. (I did take a quick detour to a small cave I spotted just before the third bridge)
Beautiful fall hike! A little steep at the end but very doable! Went early in the morning while the air was still a bit chilly, on the way down the temperature was perfect! Also, early in the morning there is less traffic on the trail. Bring water! Beautiful views of he valley and the surrounding mountain range! Highly recommend this hike!!
Beautiful hike! You see it all with this hike the diverse terrain, the beautiful rock canyons and the views!!!! It's a steep one but not too difficult. Coming down is a bit rough on the ol knees though! So glad we were able to enjoy the changing leaves. Like the reviews said make sure you make a sharp left after the 5th bridge. Numbers of the bridges are on them in case you loose count!;)
Pretty steep going up but lots of shade. Views at top, amazing!
This trail is beautiful, especially with the fall colors starting to pop out. It was definitely a climb the whole way up with some pretty steep parts--It was a good workout! The view from the top is amazing! My favorite hike is still Timp, but this is definitely second in line. I love that there's a "real" bathroom at the trail head with toilets that flush. I also love that it's only half the distance of Timp, so a good option when I don't have a lot of time. Round trip took me 3 hours from the parking lot to the parking lot, and that was stopping at the top to admire the view and take pictures. I appreciate all the reviewers who warned that the turn off was after the 5th bridge because I knew exactly what to look for. I'll definitely be doing this one again!
Trailblazed this all the way up in 2 hours to see the sunset. Was very difficult but worth it !
The Y trail was harder to me. Y trail took me about 4 hours counting the stops to take pics. Squaw was under 3 hrs. The inclines were tough at spots but loved the entire trail. I'd do it multiple times.
Seriously tough in the rain, but the view is like Google Earth. Best I know of. Most of my 11-year-old Scouts made it through the rain and mud and had a good time. The youngest couldn't quite do that last mile up. Everyone got covered in mud, as you might imagine. If you can run a mile without stopping, you can do this, even in the rain.
I love this hike
loved this hike, the view at the top is worth it. ended up being a bit over 7.5 miles round trip from the car. fall colors are starting to pop up at the top.
Pretty steep and good workout. Views are awesome. The left turn into the trail is not marked at all except a National Forest post a little over a mile in from the parking lot. I went all the way to Rick Canyon campground, another 2 miles in before I realized I missed turn. Made a 7 mile hike much longer.
