My cousin and I made it to the summit in 1.5 hours and ran back down in 45 minuets. Idk how long the trail really is but it took us a total of 2h15m to hike out and back. Many people did it in 5h or so. It all depends on your fitness level and how much pain you want to endure. You can shock yourself with every new hike if you’re willing to push yourself past what you thought was possible :)

Great hike to the falls. If you want to go further, it's nice, too. Fairly steep after the falls, but not hard.

I love this trail! So many great views, wildlife, and scenery.

A fun little nature walk with our 2 year old. We actually didn't walk around the whole thing this time. Instead we decided to do the Lake Solitude hike to test out our little guy. He did wonderful on both this walk and the hike.

We started this hike at 12:30am so we could watch the sunrise and we were finally got back to our car at 11:30am so we were hiking a lot longer than expected! This is the hardest hike I’ve ever done, but it’s definitely possible and very rewarding and BEAUTIFUL at the top! I don’t think I’ll do this hike again for a long time since it’s SO difficult especially the last mile and a half (It took us an hour). But I still highly recommend this hike! It is absolutely FREEZING at the top so wear very very warm clothes! Also all trails says it’s 14 miles, but it’s definitely longer. My Apple Watch says it was 18 miles so keep that in mind!

As others have said, take the dirt road at Orson Park. I almost got tempted to try a different route since I live in Lehi, but looking at google images, doesn’t look like there is a fully thru way yet.
I’m not the biggest fan of the first half of the trail. It has a very dry desert mountain feel to it and gets quite steep. Once it levels out and gets into some pine, I loved it. Traversing across rock reminded me of some hikes I’ve done in southern Utah and the view of the peak is fantastic. Nothing really too tough or scary until you get to the very top. The last five minutes or so to reach the top really made me think twice. Great view though and well worth it. Took me 4 hours and 15 minutes to the top. Started at 8:15am and was at the top at 12:30.

Short steep hike with a very scenic view at the end . Not one of my favorites mainly because the lack of forest.

I loved this hike!! It was great for me and my boys!! It was a good length and a mix of flat and a little steep!

Short hike but a really great one :-)

Great hike but it’s straight up an in a neighborhood witch is kinda off but for a fast one I’d go again took my kids youngest is 4 an she did just fine just rocky right before the falls

Balade facile et amusante pour les enfants (passages un peu techniques) pour bien finir la journée en sortant de Zion national Park par l'est. Arrêtez vous juste après le tunnel. Si le parking est plein, on trouve des places un peu plus haut le long de la route. Très beau point de vue sur la vallée une gros arrivé au bout du trail. Comptez une heure A/R.

This hike was amaze-inggg! It was a little harder than I thought it would be, but that might be because I went in the afternoon on a hot day. I loved the views, the water crossing and the lake at the end (definitely went swimming). I took my dog and his feet got hot in the darker dust, we had to take a lot of breaks and I carried him for a bit. I keep dreaming about it and plan to do it again!

For a beginner like me; this was a great hike with amazing views!

It's very easy hike. My two year old loved every minute of it. It's pretty and we loved the water fall.

Falls are only a bit more than a trickle this time of year. Steeper hike than you'd think

fun hike, gorgeous lake and pretty flowers

Had a great hike. Gets a little step and rocky before the waterfall. It's quite refreshing once you get there. My 6 year old was able to make it.

I've done this peak a few times now. Definitely do the loop after the peak. There was never anyone on the trail when I hiked it, usually mid week. I saw some bull elk just off the trail. Recommended for sure.

pretty lake!!

We decided on this hike when we found out that Angels Landing was closed. Started early, (August 12 2018 with a predicted high of 95F) and glad we did. This has to be one of the most beautiful hikes we have done and for someone of my advanced age it was definitely a challenge. Coming down was not so easy either. Beauty at every turn though

Pros:
- Awesome views of the surrounding peaks including Box Elder the whole way
- Opportunities to see wildlife
- Wild flowers
- Hardly anyone on the trail, even on a Saturday in prime hiking season

Cons:
- Really steep (my GPS tracker told me 5177 ft elevation gain when dips and gains are factored in both ways)
- Exposed (hot the whole way)
- No water outside of roughly the first mile.

I would say this hike was harder than Timp or Nebo. I would recommend starting early (5 or 6 in the morning) to avoid the heat in the summer. I would also recommend bringing more liquid than you think you need, then bring some more. I started at 8, and despite having a large camelbak and 40 oz of Gatorade, I ran out of liquid with about 4 miles left in the hike. That is my fault for not rationing water very well at the beginning of the hike.

All things considered, this is still a really incredible hike that I would recommend to very experienced hikers in good shape. Definitely a cool peak to bag.

Always a great, quick hike. Hot hot hot so bring water.

Mostly up hill but has some nice reprieve with switch backs and flatter parts. A mix of shady and exposed. The lake was beautiful and it wasn’t too trafficked. Round trip took me about 5.5 hours including a nice break at the top. Love this hike.

I've done this twice, and the first time was perfect. I went alone, and appreciated all the cairns to lead the way. The second time I went with friends, and we somehow got off the path, and went 2000 ft south of the trail. Trudging through scrub oak on steep hills really, REALLY sucks. Don't do that!

LOVED this hike. Took about 2.5 hours round trip and it was so worth it.

The route up is an access road so it’s rocky, wide, and very exposed to the sun. The lake itself is nice. There are very limited tent sites if you’re planning on staying the night.

This is an excellent trail. Moderate is the right grading as the start is reasonably energetic but by no means strenuous in our view. We are a family, reasonably fit but nothing exceptional with 15 and 12 year old boys. The views are fantastic, the photo opportunities along the way plentiful and incredible. There is a lovely canyon portion in the middle which is shaded. The top section is easy going until observation point which is a good place to take in the elevated view and replenish reserves for the trip down. We started at 08:15, took many photos on the way up and stayed at the top for 20 minutes or so. We were back at the start by 12:15. We did not rush at any point.

It had been 25 or so years since I'd been up this side, and I'd also forgotten how much easier it is in comparison to the Aspen Grove Trail head. I just love the long climbing switchbacks across the terraces, and how the views in both directions are changing continually throughout the hike. Between the two and three mile marks (approximately) there is also excellent opportunity to see plentiful sea life fossils, if you know what you're looking for. Water sources become more and more limited as the season draws out, so be aware, carry plenty and consider a filter. This mountain is so amazingly majestic, and never disappoints, at least in my opinion. Even if you only plan to hike to the basin, this is one of the easier places to always spot Mountain Goats, which is always entertaining. Excellent hike, I need to knock this one out again before the season is finished!

beautiful lake, beautiful trail. it is steep and quitr demanding. I was breaking in a new backpacking pack and had a lot of unnecessary weight, so that was a huge factor. I think that if I'd done it with half the weight, it wouldn't have felt so hard. we were stopped by a big bull moose on the trail, and the trail is popular enough our group went from two to almost twenty whole we waited for him to move away. he took his sweet time and we sat around for about 20 to 30 minutes. :) i

It was a good trail and a great workout. I definitely recommend it, but not for kids under 12. we saw lots of kids who pooped out before the end (or less than a mile into the trail) and were riding piggy back. Also, bring plentu of water. it is shaded in the morning, but it was hot with minimal shade in the afternoon. It's "hard" for a reason. don't punish your kids or yourself.
