Great hike! A little of everything, up/down, rocky, straight. once at the top it's just beautiful.

I give this trail a 1 only because it is now way over used and populated by flatlanders , I'm guessing mostly due to this app making places like gods bath far too easy to find. I used to love this place, but no longer is it a peaceful clean swimming hole for the locals during the summer. It is instead exploited and littered upon by smartphone toting millennial tourists, looking for that off the beaten path experience. My point is that if more and people want to visit these remote places and enjoy them, then it would be in everyone's best interests to do so respectfully and PICK UP YOUR TRASH! And DO NOT pack anything made of GLASS! Thank you!

Hiked the day after a big rain so the trails were suuuuper muddy and slippery. Water was also a little too high so tough to get into the cave. Would recommend it for a dry day though! Very quiet tail on January Thursday.

Fun little hike! Easy to get a bit turned around though.

this was a wonderful beautiful trail to walk ,i recommend it to anyone

I love God's Bath. it has a very steep drop to climb down where a rope is attached to use, but with caution, as I'm sure it's pretty old. once you've reached the bottom, get ready for a rocky climb. you have boulders to cross and a very large Boulder to balance across with marginal footing. Again, there is a rope to hold on to but it's very narrow. my husband told me if I start to fall, push out so that you hit the water, not the boulders below. Once you've reached the waterfalls and pools, you can enjoy a peaceful swim all to yourselves. We were alone in a few pools of water.
Be safe and happy climbing!

Great escape!

Definitely steep, but gorgeous views. Counter clockwise is very steep going down at the end, but it makes the pain in the knees short-lived :) Plateau at the top is surreal, like another planet. Trail takes you through varied environments, which was interesting.

I liked this trail as a great escape from the Central Valley. It is way more steep than I thought and should be labeled as hard for sure. I didn’t mind that since I’m on good shape but if you have bad knees beware. The field at the top is a bit odd with helicopter parts and such but still a beautiful view and definitely worth it. I would do this again.

gave it 5 stars due to how short the hard parts were for such a huge payoff, oh when you see the caves turn around you got off trail switchbacks start behind you

short hike to amazing views

A beautiful hike in the spring with the summit covered by wildflowers.

The description says this is a loop trail which, up until now, was not true. There is a new section of trail which you can descend off Table Mountain and make this a loop. If you take the trail, which is shown on the map up to the top of Table Mountain and hike southerly along the West rim of Table Mountain for approximately 1/2 mile you will come to a stone memorial monument. Continue along the rim for another 400 feet and you will come to a depression in the escarpment, follow this down (it is a little adventurous but most people should be able to do this) to the point where you will "T" into another trail (this is the climbers trail that goes to the Grotto climbing area, go there for another adventure). At the "T" turn left and follow this trail down to the Peoria Flat Road and back to your vehicle. An easier way to do this trail (it a bit less adventurous as you are going uphill in the adventurous section) is to get to the parking area with the toilet either by hiking or vehicle and follow Peoria Flat Road past the locked gate approximately 1/2 mile to a will defined trail that diagonals up and left (you will pass a couple of other indistinct trails on the left but you will know you are on the correct if you come to a steel power pole just right of the trail after going 300 feet on the trail) Continue up the trail and you will come to a rocky section where you will be hoping from rock to rock, continue past this section to a point where the trail descends into another rocky section. Before you descend find a trail on the right that does steep uphill, follow this trail to the rim and continue north along the rim to intersect with the trail going down after approximately 1/2 mile.

Nice. Hetch betchy hike.

More signs would be helpful. I missed a sign directing me to stay left and went right which brought me to thousands of rocks. I climbed almost to the top of the rocks, but felt that this was not the trail. I eventually picked up the trail again, but never made it to the top because there wasn’t a lot of sunlight left. Will return to finish the trail.

Steep and slippery in places, worth it for the views!

Was a super nice hike. Not too hard at all.

Pretty awesome trail, I would rate this trail moderate just because it’s kinda rocky ... make sure you have boots with ankle support because trail shoes won’t cut it!! The falls were dry but that’s ok because it’s beautiful either way no need to find beauty in the expectation of one thing :) awesome all around with great views!!

An interesting part of Yosemite NP that I never knew existed before a friend mentioned it to us. It's not as spectacular as the Yosemite valley but what it lacks in that department, it makes up in being much quieter and just unassumingly pretty. Definitely a good place to visit to get some rest from the crowds in the valley.
The hike itself is short but can get tiring if it is hot - it certainly was mid-June when we visited. I guess the moderate rating is quite appropriate. The waterfalls are pretty and the views of the lake are simply beautiful.

Park at the first gate to add a bit extra to your hike. It’s rocky and steep at the very top, but doable. The views from the top are awesome.

Really fun place to go, the best place is behind the golf course

generally: moderate trail in Stanislaus Wilderness with good scenery most of the way, moderate difficulty, well maintained trail, decently popular for backpacking with sites scattered around the lake
permits: free, get at ranger station, fires allowed at lake with permit
trailhead: unpaved road for several miles, lots of parking at trailhead

hiked once in september with snow on trail and once in late july and swam in lake

The water in the cave is never warm, regardless of the time of year. But very beautiful if you are brave enough to go through. Bring water shoes! This is not a running trail unless you want to bust an ankle.

This hike was awesome and kicked my butt! a few things i need to address though. although dogs are allowed...the descent is SUPER steep, often times going over boulders and i was lucky my dog's stay command is on point because if i wasnt supervising where her footing was she could have really gotten hurt. also USE THIS APP ON THE TRAIL IF YOU CAN. several times i got lost and had to use it to go back. One time I realized i was lost and saw fresh large animal prints that freaked me out as it had recently rained and i hadn't seen or heard another hiker the whole day. Finding the trail to get down was difficult, it starts out all bolders and there's another trail next to it that makes it confusing.TRUST THE MAP. The plateau is a perfect place to have lunch before heading down.

The water in the cave was numbingly cold mid-October but me and my 5 yr old still dared to jump in. It was an easy hike and a nice time down in the cave. Very fun, family friendly hike. Take towels and a floating device if you plan to brave the waters.

The river water was a little bit too cold for us in October but we did watch other people swim through the “cave“ to the other side back.

Whew! Highly recommended!

Awesome surprise at the end. Swimming in a cave!!

This is a good trail for a light to moderate hike. There are some little inclines to get up that are a bit rocky. abouy two miles in to the cave. The cave is awesome. Very cold water but you can float or swim through. The other side is open and we climbed around to the other side.
