Enjoyed the walk with the family. It's well traveled and easily marked. The uphill climb was a surprise but I probably should have done more research on it. The family had a good time looking out over the mountains and, even with the fogged-in views, weren't disappointed in the least.

Nothing new to say, but had to say it - WOW

It’s a great hike but extremely heavily trafficked with people that don’t know hiking etiquette. Get there early before the tourists get there with there beer and boom boxes. In the early morning you will have the trail to yourself. Plus you won’t have to worry about the heat. There is very little shade and everyone buds for it. But the view are amazing

Outstanding!!!

This trail is great with lots of many loops and has shade. Great climbing points as well. Great hike for little kids since it’s very short.

This trail is beautiful throughout. I do recommend not going in the middle of the day though (if you’re doing the hike in the summer) because it can get very crowded and hot. Recommend bringing 1 quart of water per person at least.

Easy trail. Nice and quiet early in the morning. No issues for our crew of 9 with 5 kids (ages 6 to 14). Personally not a fan of paved hikes, but easy for all levels. Nice waterfall.

Physically demanding, but certainly worth it. Great scenery and a nice view from the top. Definitely recommend an early start to beat the crowds and/or summer thunderstorms.

Nice short hike, a little steep. Cave is kind of a let down but the river and waterfall are worth it

Very good trail for the family. We have three 7 year olds and they did fantastic. At the waterfalls you can go down to the bottom. They discourage it but if you use common sense it makes the trail that much better! We loved it! On the way out we saw a black bear that made the trail that much better.

Got on the trail early, left about 4:45 and only saw a few people on the way up. Great trail, one of the easier 14ners but the view at the top is great. Saw lots of people on the way down but wasn’t to crowded. Nice hike for sure

Gorgeous scenery, one of the best hikes I’ve ever done. Get there early to beat the crowds.

Being scared of Heights, i was nervous about doing this. But it was not as bad as i thought it was going to be. Go early, we caught the first shuttle there. It was not that busy yet. The hike up to where Angels Landing starts, is the most difficult.

The scenery is candidly unbelievable. The crowds are a bit much, particularly those who leave the trails right past the signs and hide behind “no English” as an excuse.

Great trail to tackle for first time 14er.

The trail offers a lot from meadows to creeks, we even spotted a family of mountain goats. There are segments that have a lot of loose rock, so be prepared for that on the way back down. Given this is a really high-traffic trail, expect some congestion along the way.

And yes, the road to get to the trailhead is rough and not well kept! Though an AWD vehicle with decent clearance will make it fine - just take it slow. We arrived around 4:30am on a Saturday and parked just down the road from the lot as it was already full.

We loved this little place. The trail is easy enough for a wheelchair or a stroller for most/all of it. The cave is more like an overhang, but still fun. The waterfall is the best part. It's refreshing and great to take picture with!

Awesome. Most inspiring, impressive, risky, spectacular view, trail I have hiked. It is only risky if you don’t take your time, do dumb things, or wear inappropriate footwear. I don’t know what I can add to the thousands of five star reviews but it is truly a memorable and taxing hike to the top. On the day I ascended I was one of the only people I saw with gray in his beard and hair! It is strenuous but worth the hike/climb. I did this with my son when he was 16 or 17 years old and it is still one of our most memorable experiences. Highly recommended, although if you have a fear of heights you may want to avoid this one. it really is safe with a chain guide on posts in all the appropriate places. But, the drop off is straight down at about 1000 feet on either side of the ridge you where you spend the most taxing time of the hike. View from the top down the valley awe inspiring! This is one you’ll want to tell everyone about.

Awesome and tiring hike to the peak. My wife and I did this hike today with the luck of some awesome weather. It was a bit crowded toward the top, but like others have said, the trail is very, very well maintained. Almost to a fault. I enjoyed the peak mostly for the 360 views. It's hard to describe and even pictures do zero justice for how vast and awesome it truly is. If you start at the bottom lot, expect a pretty gnarly start to the trail. We were surprised by the sudden incline, which sort of beat us up a bit before we acclimated and fell into our rhythm. Much like other 14ers, always assume that it never ends. Near the top, you have to ascend three nearly straight up (at least from your vantage point) climbs before the 'final' trek to the summit. Seriously, it never ends. But when it does, amazeballs. Oh, and leave the little Pikas and goats alone. They deserve to be there as much as we do, and they're insanely adorable to look at on your way up. Luckily we ran into both. It does get pretty cold at the peak. Simple cloud coverage had us shivering, but it's still worth it. Go!

This was an utterly amazing hike and so completely worth it! Went early to avoid the heat and didn’t really see that many people. Beautiful views, challenging hike - loved it!

This one scared me as it started raining towards the end. The views were gorgeous.

We got there around 8:30am on a Sat. The trail was not super busy and we even had some time to ourselves at the fall. We enjoyed every part of this hike. It was not too strenuous, interesting things to explore and awesome waterfall to walk behind. When we left, the crowds were coming in.

awesome short trek.....a leg workout 4 sure.....bummer the cliff top portion was closed....

Hiked this last Wednesday. On the trail at 5:20am, the hike was enjoyable with cooler weather up to the flat. Summit at 7:30 (2:12 min) at a good pace. I climb every year and the early departure was a big plus , fewer people on the trail and cooler temps.
Hiked in shorts, t-shirt and hat with trail runners, One very light weight down jacket (used at the summit), a shell (not used), spare socks, battery backup, tiny blister kit and kleenex completed the pack. I carried 3L and used 2.25L of water, 2 snickers,a banana and protein bar.
Down in 1:40, jogging on the flats for a total trip of 3:52. I hiked with wife/daughter last year at a more leisurely pace and we were up/down in about 5:20 (added water and snacks)
In 10+ summits the trail is in the best shape I have ever seen it - thank the hardworking trail crew if you see them.
