Had a blast until my sandals disintegrated. Don’t be like me, heed the Park rangers advice, wear boots.

Beautiful hike! Started at 8 am and the weather was great; it was in the high 60s when we started and mid 70s when we got back to our car. The hardest part of the hike was the slab, straight up incline. Must bring water!

One of the best!

Long drive out to it. Great little hike and was able to see both East and West side of Canyons. If you are weary of heights trail takes some getting used to but is very do-able. Several stairs to climb up and down. Just go slow

Got started before the first shuttle got there since we are staying at the lodge. Left the cabin at around 6:45 and we’re one of the first few people to the top. Recommend going in the morning as the way down had a lot of congestion.

Fun!

Killer view at the top...

Excellent views at every step of the way!

Great well marked trail, totally worth the short climbs to get the amazing arches at the end.

Loved this hike! It was relatively easy just long. We went in April and started around 11am next time I’d like to start earlier before it heats up. Middle of summer would be way to hot! There was quite a few people on the trail but not as many as expected. My dogs loved swimming in the falls... we did see LOTS of snakes on this trail.

great trail made the mistake of doing peek a boo on the top of this in one day.

This is a hard trail because of the steep switch-backs. Pace yourself up this trail. Think of it in four parts. The first is the steep switch-backs up the outside of the mountain. But once you make it up that you get a break by hiking in the shade and more reasonable path back inside. But be prepared to hit the third part of the trail that takes you up shorter, but steeper switch-backs a good bit up. At the end you find the part that’s flat where you can rest and go to the bathroom. From here you can go back down or take the final leg up where you have to hold on to chains and make your way to the top on a small ledge with pausing for hikers moving back and forth up the trail.

Amazing hike

Can be heavy traffic, but plenty of alone places when you get near the top.

It’s scary. Be smart wear good shoes. Great views both directions

Must see when going to Utah. Went at 9:00am, crowds were getting bad when leaving.

We arrived at the trailhead which is just after you exit the tunnel. There are only 10 parking spots and we were fortunate that just as we drove in a car was leaving allowing a place for us. The hike was easy and very interesting with rock overhangs above us. At the end of the trail the vista of the canyon open to a spectacular view. On the walk back we were fortunate to see a young mountain sheep grazing right on the trail, it was a wonderful experience.

Absolutely breathtaking. Cannot stress enough how dangerous and difficult it is, though. If you are unsure, stop at Chicken Rock. From there, the steep drop offs begin.

amazing hike. we loved the views and the challenge. highly recommended.

The Wave is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Our permits were for late March. The weather was perfect, it drizzled at times which kept the temperature perfect. We didn't use a compass or GPS... probably would've found it faster if we had. It was a rough hike for the non-hiker in the group.

Easy hike. My favorite arch of all time!

Did this hike a year ago and it was amazing! Beautiful view! You can’t beat this beautiful area

Can’t say enough about Bryce Canyon. It’s simply one of the more beautiful natural spectacles in the United States. This trail, specifically, is one of the most popular, giving you the best views on a simple, short hike.

There’s not a lot to say that hasn’t already been said, this trail is incredible but not for the faint of heart. Go early or late in the day to avoid the crowds, bring gloves with good grip for holding onto the chains on the rocks. If you do get scared, please move off the trail! There were several people that were clinging on to the chains, holding on for dear life, sitting on the ground in the middle of the walkways, making it very dangerous for the rest of us.

Excellent option if you like The Narrows, this is a much less populated water trail. Neoprene socks keep your feet warm in the cold creek water. First half of the hike is a bit exposed but the 2nd half is shaded in the narrow canyons.

All time favorite

Easy, fantastic views, neat biological soil communities along the way. Even after sunrise, Mesa Arch is breathtaking.

Breathtaking. Take two or three times the water you think you'll need. The hike up the slickrock affords you no shade and can be brutal even as even starts to set in.

I bought the shirt, and then I had to do it. Tip: go as early as you can get in the park. The crowds start coming after that, and you do NOT want to be stuck behind them when you're all hanging on the side of a cliff holding the same chain. Plus, there are people coming up who are not prepared or in shape for this hike and you do not want to get stuck behind them. Great hike if you don't mind a little fear factor. I'm not afraid of heights, but even I was a little uncertain in some parts. Just keep climbing.

Amazing! Easy hike but be very very careful with navigation, you can get lost easily.
