Easy to get to and very well maintained trail. First half is a wide, uphill path with the second half being a stepper trail up stones. There is a long line to take a photo at the top though. Got up in about an hour really pushing the pace.

Very easy walk. Beautiful Canyon views!

It's not very shady and a pretty difficult hike when it's hot but of course worth it for the photo op! It gets very very busy so earlier better than later!

one of the best backpacking trips I have done and the views are like nothing I have ever seen. hard to believe it's real some tines, I will definitely be getting back up here again.

Amazing hike to Potato Chip Rock, the wait wasn’t bad. People were very good about trading phones for pictures , if you took their picture , they would wait for your group to go out to the rock and take your picture. Some people complain about the wait, it’s not bad especially if you work as a team.

Closed at the trailhead due to rockfall as of 1/19/2019.

Beautiful hike, gave it only 4 stars because there was a ~45 min wait to climb potato chip rock for a picture.

Great hike with stunning payoff but given the weather conditions and challenging elevation gain, particularly in the last kilometer or two of this trail, I would rate it as difficult.

Nice trail, but very busy. Great scenery a few minutes into the hike, but I'd you are looking for a quiet hike this might not be the ideal trail for you, however If you want an easy trail for the whole family then this is definitely a trail for you.

The main and overflow parking area full up quickly.

1/11/19 heavy ice on beginning of trailhead. do not attempt without crampons.

GREAT hike! Definitely need cramp-ons to do this safely right now. Absolutely stunning views, and not heavily trafficked at all. 10/10 would recommend.

Hiked yesterday 1-12-19. Maybe 3-4 inches of snow at the top, no need for snow shoes. Always a good hike with sweet views of Shasta at the top (make sure to hike a few minutes past the official “end of trail” sign for better views to the north)

Steep, but not too difficult. I did not like how exposed the last mile was on the sheer cliff face, but I am afraid of steep cliffs.

A lot better than Angels Landing, because this is less crowded.

Absolutely great views, I would do it again.

It’s full of snow now!!! So beautiful!

This is an easy snowshoe trek from the Sno-Park lot to Lower Echo. We also shoed across the length of Lower Echo. Powder is deep in spots, and the lake is mostly frozen. Absolutely enchanting. Such a gorgeous hike. Today’s weather was terrific, along with ideal road conditions.

I loved this hike, we where there first part of November. The deepest part of the Narrows was just above the knee. We had rented the water gear at Zion Adventures. The water temp was 42 degrees and we where not cold at all, feet were wet the whole time, kinda felt like you had jello in your shoes! We hiked about 5 hours up and back. I will definitely do this hike again!!! The scenery was spectacular.

Aweosme hike. Brought the entire family along-deer in the stream-waterfalls-scenic spots-everything is surreal here!

I'm so sad that this trail is closed. I had some really amazing memories there.

Did this early October and really enjoyed it. On my first try I had to return about 15min before I reach the top because it began to rain and a storm was rolling in. But I did it again 2 days later on a perfect sunny day. The view is just spectacular and I stayed for about 1 hour and enjoyed the scenery. Although it was strenuous, going up and down took me a little less than 4 hours. I recommend to start early, so you have some time for yourself at the top before more and more people are coming.

Overcrowded. Overrated. And relatively boring most of the hike. A nice workout and a gorgeous wait in line at the top. This hike wouldn’t be so bad if not as many unprepared and rude people hiked it. Go extremely early if you want to enjoy yourself and the nature around you.

Hopefully soon there will be a route where the public is encouraged to take in the beauty. I was in absolute awe

What an amazing gift in our back yard. Can’t wait to go again! It was a long journey for my kids but the payoff was HUGE and well worth it. Felt like we could see for eternity.

Good hard hike for a nice workout. Did this during summer so I Started at 6 am with my dog and ended at 9/10 am. Start and end with a walk near the lake. Potato chip was a little disappointing and you have to climb up on to get to but still a nice fun hike.

Try to go early in the morning. You’ll bit the sun and the line to take a photo at the famous potato chip rock.

This is my second time on this hike and is fun and challenging as always. I went with a ton of my family so we kept stopping to take pictures. This trail is definitely a leg killer but if you push yourself you will make it! People need to pick up their dogs crap and throw the bags away! I’m trying to enjoy a nice hike without worrying about stepping in dog crap! It’s also very crowded, but really fun!

More difficult than moderate but quite a nice view of Shasta at the top. Past bit is like walking up a giant staircase with big steps.
