Great for hiking in the snow! absolutely beautiful. Trafficked but not heavily. I will be back soon.

Very icy near the top. A bit of a scramble too, most dogs wont make it the last .4

Completed 1/15. Pretty snowpacked with ice in some spots. Needed spikes almost the entire way. Beautiful winter hike!!

This was such a fun trail with breathtaking views! It had just snowed and the red rock against the white powder was so beautiful! The uphill was a bit challenging for someone who doesn’t hike a lot, but the views and experience were truly amazing!

Easy, brisk trail, great one for beginners

Muddy but a great quick hike

Perfect. Yak tracks or microspikes help but not required.

Great view, fun hike. There were some parts where I wished I had grips for a little extra traction in the snow but you can get by without them. I’ll definitely be going back when the weather has changed to see how the trail is then and maybe even while the snow is still around.

Rangers recommmended that I did not go up the royal arch without micro spikes! Flat irons loop was icy and snowy as it is!

Icy and snowy on trails! Need micro spikes or at the very least hiking shoes!

Really great trail! It was snowy most of the trail with some muddy areas. But the views were amazing. Highly recommended!

Hiked 1/12/2019. Lots of snow, microspikes are helpful. Trail is easy to find. Started at 8:30am, only passed a few people coming up, but trail was busy on our descent.

amazing winter hike. snow was loosely packed, not icy. I hiked in just boots with good grip. get out here when the snow is fresh, it's stunning!

Went on a fresh snow day. It was stunning great views wildlife and moderate traffic. Under the snow there was packed ice but the drag snow kept the walk stable without having to wear spikes. Snowshoeers were out and about. I’d definitely do it again!

Excellent hike!

a challenging hike especially if you’re not used to the elevation. Incline right away and pretty much the whole time, but definitely worth it.

Definetly the hardest hike I’ve been on, bring lots of water and a small snack. If you’re from the Midwest like myself be prepared for the elevation difference, lots of yawns.

Few icy spots in the beginning so be careful but it’s worth it

Hiked this trail 4 days ago. It was icy with light snow coverage. I used micros which helped a great deal. The frozen waterfall was beautiful!! A great winter hike. I look forward to doing this hike in the spring.

We saw 20-30 other groups out on this trail during our 3 hour hike today. Gorgeous views. No snow on the trail, but icy in spots as was mentioned a few days ago.

Fun hike with the pup

Agree with comment below.

Beautiful views! Great hike to bring the dogs with on a leash.

I hiked this with a group in the fall. Outstanding hike and view at the arch. Hoping to trail run up to the "false summit" in the near future.

We wanted to do the Mt. Zion Mtn bike but there wasn’t much signage so we ended up on part of this trail. Started at the trailhead with the porta-potties and went a total of 3 miles. Stopped at the mansion and the nature center for a few before heading back down. Parts of the trail had packed snow but basic hiking shoes worked well (went on 01/05/18). Our dog loved it, but we really wish more people would be responsible for picking up their pet’s waste. We never leave home without poo bags, they are so small and easy to grab! Also, as someone else said, lots of kids and people who weren’t actually hikers out on the trail. More busy than we would have liked. When there was a view it was amazing, we are glad we took this trail.

The hike itself is nice the terrain is good although some snow. This is a moderate hike with some great views definitely enjoyed it.
You can access the trail from different points so keep that in mind.

Amazing

Hiked 1/5/19: Very beautiful/easy short hike with a few side overlook trails! This is a very busy trail with all ages but surprisingly had the most wildlife I’ve ever seen on a hike! I saw deer, rabbits, birds and TWO BABY BOBCATS! There was quite a few people who witnessed the two babies but the mother was nowhere to be found. A gentleman in the crowd said he would let the ranger know! Also, once park capacity hits it’s one car in one car out. It was at full capacity by noon. $8 park fee! Totally worth it!

Beautiful stroll through the woods. The waterfall was frozen but made it super cool as well!
