Amazing hike! Definitely a great workout with a solid 33 pounds of baby on your back. Great views! Go early to get some shade and not have to wait long to get your picture on the chip ;). Bring plenty of water and snacks!

Amazing trail. Great views. Definitely would do it again. Take plenty of water!! On the harder side.

best trail i have done,will definitely be back.

I am trying to get a permit for 2 of us and I can’t get thru the phone lines. I have called continuously but no answer. Any suggestions on how else I can purchase a couple nights stay for 2 possibly 3 of us? Would they help me if I drive all the way there? Please email me if you have suggestions : chapis503@outlook.com

Incredible hike! A little chilly with some brutal wind, but the experience was worthwhile. Be prepared for some serious rock scrambles. My hiking buddy and I were very surprised by the amount of snow still on the top of some of the trails beyond the poplar summit. Made for some challenging conditions on the way to and from the fire tower.

Great trail with amazing views. Agree with other reviews about it being a moderate trail. Stick to the trail and you'll be fine.

Amazing. Absolutely amazing. Not a hike for beginners but I definitely wouldn’t rate it hard. More like moderate. All the falls are absolutely breath taking. If you’re using your phone for pictures I recommend bringing a portable charger because you will need it with the amount of pictures you’ll take! You could easily get away with wearing sneakers. Just some parts are a little slippery and there’s still patches of snow and ice. But overall 10/10 will 100% be going again soon!

AMAZING. Honestly no words.

If you're looking for a great view, you won't find a better one around! This hike is truly spectacular. We started the trail in Praiano, where you walk up approximately 5 million steps to get to the actual path. We had almost reached the top when we got caught in a storm -- thunder, rain and hale! Luckily we happened to be right next to a cave/ overhang so we hit out there until it eased up a bit, then we ran up the last flight of steps to the monastery. Once up there, we were offered espresso and water and got to pet these 2 sweet pups who lived on / near the monastery property. Luna and Lilly! Aside from the views, that might've been the highlight of my day. Haha. So -- after the rain stopped and we dried out a bit, we continued up the mountain to the trail. This is the one part of the hike from Praiano that gets tricky. Others have said the trail of the gods is easy and you could do it in sandals, but this part is rocky and pretty treacherous unless you're really fit. I would recommend hiking shoes if you're joining up on the trail from Praiano, because while it's not necessary for the rest of the hike, it is helpful if it's slick outside for these rocky bits near the monastery. Don't get me wrong, it's not really hard, but it can be a little scary if you're not used to being at the edge of a cliff.

Absolute breathtaking hike! Quite a challenge with most of this hike being rocky slopes. I like to do this backwards where you hike to the falls vs. seeing the falls first. Wear shoes with good grip and slip resistant. Get there early as it gets crowded, and dont forget your cameras!!!!

We nailed it and went during the worst weather ever! but this trail is sheltered somewhat and the rain/fog didn't effect us much! Made the colors pop in our pictures too :) Eat at the Rickett's Glenn Hotel...YUMMO! Get the potato thing - it was delicious!

Great hike and view!

This trail is more on the hard side because of its length (7.6 miles) and it’s steepness. If you or whoever you’re with isn’t in pretty good shape don’t try it. There is a long line at the potato chip rock to take a picture. Take one bottle of water per person plus snack bars. Wear hiking shoes or boots, not running shoes, due to rocks. Wear sunscreen at midday.

Great trail. I’ve done it three times since March has started. If you want more of a challenge take the trail counter clockwise starting with the blue dot trail and taking the red dot down. Much steeper inclines going up so it’s a nicer workout plus you get to see all the falls first and the hike down is much quicker after you summit

Really great trail, but really exhausting for the people we brought along who don’t hike all the time. There weren’t any maps located at the trail head, but as long as you keep following the Mt Woodson Trail and don’t get led astray by other trails forking off, you should be fine. Jumping across to the potato chip park of the Boulder was a little scary for myself who is afraid of heights, but had to do it for the pic. Happy trails!

Great incline for a workout. I went on Tuesday and just a few of us in line for the photo op :) bring lots of water and protein bars.

Such a beautiful place to go and see nature. The hike in was roughly 12 miles in (not the 10 everyone says). We checked in at the village and were on our way. There isn’t any signs along the way to let us know we were heading in the right direction so we used other hikers as our “guides” to know we were heading in the right direction. When we reached the first “fall” it was a disappointment (only because I thought that was where we were suppose to be and that was it). Keep going, pass the signs that say “Dangerous Unstable Ground” and pass the grave yard. When you are getting nervous you will never make it, just go a little further and you are there. This place is totally worth the sore muscles and exhaustion. We did put up our tent in close to the Natural Spring water (really made life easier to be so close to the fresh water). The hike out is daunting, tiring and makes you question every poor life choice but when you reach the top and are back in the comfort of your own vehicle, it makes you feel accomplished. Wear good supportive shoes, take ONLY what you need and hand sanitizer NEEDS to make it in your pack. Females, be prepared to “hover” in the bathrooms. Most importantly....enjoy the place....it’s absolutely beautiful and magical.

Must do! a beautiful hike! I would HIGHLY recommending stopping once you hit the highway. Everything after that is not very scenic, long and a lot stairs. We did the whole trail and got lost for a portion of it. You will have to cross the highway and walked through the woods unmarked.

Beautiful view of the falls but trails are closed I heard till April. Sad I didn’t get to do the hike!

It was an amazing experience!

done it a few times. great trail. make it longer by going the other way around the lake on the way back down

Great incline with beautiful views

Absolutely amazing!

Fun day, a lot of people...

challenging and so much fun. bring plenty of water and snacks! sunscreen and hats required.

The All Trails description is right on, beautiful views. Definitely harder then I thought it was going to be though. We went on a Monday in early March, only 10 or 15 people at Potato chip. Bring plenty of water!

Great trail, in good shape.

Great as long as it is cool!!

Amazing hike!!! Breathtaking views along the way! Would definitely do it all over again if in the area. Did this hike as a part of group tour and with a guide and so glad I did it this way as not sure if I’d be able to find it on my own...trails here are not marked very well...if in Amalfi coast take the time to do this hike. It’s so worth it!!

AMAZING views! Awesome waterfalls! Must do again!

Best ever!!!❤️
