Short, beautiful trail that we spent hours exploring! Peppered with multiple lovely waterfalls and rocks. Spellbindingly clear water with many different colors of rocks creates a fanciful atmosphere. Lots of people, not super easy to find the trailhead. Also, a little bit boggy--at once point my whole foot appeared to be below the grass!

We did the route that takes you all the way round and it was awesome, my sons first walk. be carful if going to the top make sure you have a clear day it’s dangerous if the cloud comes in. Great walk.

great!

One of the most breathtaking hikes ever. Push through and do the whole loop. Many turn back because the trail is not well marked, but the backside is amazing. Having AllTrails made the difference. We always knew where we were.

This was a breathtaking hike. The best way to describe it is a hybrid between a walk up to the Jedi temple and a scene from the Lord of the Rings. My boyfriend and I (both 28 and decently regular hikers from Colorado, USA) made it to the top of the water fall in 2:30 hours hiking at a comfortable pace. We encountered two rain showers so pack rain gear that will keep you dry enough. We made it with just wind breakers. And don’t be scared off by the rain unless there is thunder (which we never heard). If we would have turned back at rain we would have missed 3/4 of the gorgeous hike. Amazing. Pictures do it no justice.

Wonderful trail with amazing landscapes all along the way. CCW is a better way I think. Reach the "table" site is not that easy, but when you walk between the Rocky structures and see the "needle" from top, you have a so nice feeling that you will forgot your legs!

Okay, this was on our bucket list, and very much worth the hike. We hiked less than a third of it in 2017, and brought friends with us this year 2018, to do the complete circuit. I downloaded All Trails for this hike because we did not know where we were on the hike circuit last year. All Trails made our hike so much better and we were always aware where we were, and pushed through. Checked that box. It was absolutely beautiful, and well worth the time and effort., but coming down is not a moderate hike. it Is very difficult. Proper gear is needed, such as hiking boots with ankle support.

in the lower part much midges today, but not up higher, because of the wind and rain. beautiful climbing, pretty rocky and steep. the views are beautiful even today when it was cloudy. the hike is a loop but up on the mountain difficult to find. going round is much more fun.

Very nice wieves.

crowded at first, but once you get through the first part of the trail it not as bad. very beautiful, do CCW. Seems to be much easier going down the muddy steep incline. First half is going around the rock cliffs, second half is ridge walking on the table part and then ends with the steep muddy incline where you see people going up and down. lots of bugs and cattle

did our own path, so many trails and places to explore. very beautiful. need to go early before 9 am, crowds start gathering after 10.

very crowded. can get muddy but worth the views. be careful of rock slides. we heard rocks falling from the big rock face cliff, of course people shouting wasn't helping.

did the entire loop. beautiful views

Honestly was a little disappointed with the Fairy Pools. Yes, the little waterfalls are pretty, but I was expecting to find these during a little forest hike. It's literally an open field, crawling with people.

Really enjoyed this hike. I love that their are lots of different trails so that you can see Oldman Storr from different view points. You can also wonder off the trails and do your own thing. We wondered far enough away from the others visiting Storr so that we could take our drone out. It's absolutely beautiful here. We arrived at about 1pm and the parking lot was full, but to be fair that parking lot holds maybe 10 cars. So people were parking along the road. There were also quite a few people there when we arrived, but once you get further up the path, people go their own way and it feels like you're the only one there.

Visited the fairy pools in May this year. We arrived at 7:30 in the morning to avoid the crowds. The car park was completely empty. It was a short easy walk to get to the pools. We started at the top and worked our way down. Took wetsuits so we were then able to spend lots of time exploring, climbing and jumping into the amazing pools. Spent 3 hours here. Well worth the visit, but would definitely advise arriving early, there were coaches and buses and a packed car park as we left.

Absolutely stunning views! I’d definitely recommend going on a clear day. The trail gets very muddy/slippery with a little rain and we were unable to see the Table when the clouds rolled in.
It gets pretty steep in some parts, but still manageable for even the inexperienced hikers like myself!

Fantastic views of some of the oldest rock in the world!! Get there early though as this place is crazy busy!! You'll see why as the view is outstanding!! Word of warning.....please wear appropriate footwear....mud, rock, sandals and ankles dont get on very well.

Amazing hike...best to go CCW, so follow the path along the ridge to the right once on the main trail....do not go directly up the mountain. Word of warning, it gets very windy here and wet on the trail, so good footwear is recommended along with a light wind breaker.

Beautiful falls and pools that are set in a picturesque valley, surrounded by majestic mountains of luminous green. The path follows the stream, and in a couple of spaces there are a few rocks to hop, all well worth the journey.
