arrival time 7 am Sunday morning. parking lot was already full. had to park up the street on my Baldy St. When you start this hike, immediately the scenery is beautiful. Along a beautiful water stream flowing pretty good, and some old cabin ruins along the path. You by the 2nd mile, it's starts getting a bit more difficult because everything after that is shifting up hill all the way to the summit where it splits into many different trails. We took the Cucamonga peak trail for another 2.5 miles more. A few more switch backs but not as bad. once you get to the top! it's breath taking and beautiful.
tips- go early , bring your hiking issentials, lots of water, food, fruit or candy. Don't rush, you will burn out, go at your paste even if people pass you. it's ok to take as many stops as you want but keep a solid paste.
see you at the next adventure.

The worst hike(walk) I’ve done so far.. walking on super soft sand pretty much the whole way.. great views but after a while it all looked the same and got boring.. got to the end and no natural bridge standing,, so was pointless to go there!! I would give a -5 starts if could!!

Short hike with a great view. Worth the effort.

Short hike to amazing views, we spent a couple hours here enjoying the scenery. Horseshoe Bend is a must see, but pretty busy spot.

Always a great hike. Got there at 6:30am and got the last parking space. Go during the week if you have that option. It was a great day on top, no wind and sunny. Lots and lots of dogs today but they were all well behaved.

I have probably done this trail 10 times. It is so easy for me to get to from my house and is the perfect distance if you only want to go out for 4 hours.

I used this trail as a training hike for a high-altitude hike in California, and it worked beautifully. I have done it in the warmth of summer and the light snow of late autumn to test my winter hiking gear.

This is a great into hike to the fabulous hikes of Little Cottonwood Canyon with amazing views and an awesome lake to have lunch at before heading back down.

This hike never gets old

Nice trail to the top also can go to the left of the parking lot to take the trail towards Shortoff mtn. Go as far as you want and turn around

Amazing views. Prepare to get your feet wet. I wouldn't attempt climbing out of hamblin arch unless there is a rope. Thankfully there was two.... but still with a rope, it wasn't easy. I couldn't fathom doing it without one.

Nice hike. Get more view for the “work” you have to do.

The toughest I have ever done!! absolutely worth it! Me and friend went during off season when the cables came down. If that's the case please bring safety equipment (carabineers, harness, leather gloves) if you are planning to do the 400 ft. climb along the face of Half Dome. We did not have that equipment so I didn't do it, because safety always comes first! Have a safe hike guys and don't forget to bring lots of water and salted snacks :)

One of the most beautiful hikes I have been on. It gets challenging at times but it is well worth it.

Freshly fallen snow, giant pines, and gorgeous water. I felt safe walking through with my krampons but it may have been a bit slick with some swampy and snowy areas had we not had the proper gear.

Bring micro spikes. The top of Thunderbolt and the summit are slippery with black ice. Also, stay clear of the potential for falling ice from the monument. We had a great day, taking our time, with sunny skis and temps in the mid 30s. I enjoyed this walk and the summit views are pretty spectacular. We spotted a mink, the cutest little predator ever. He was undaunted by us as he was so busy hunting field mice. All in all- fabulous hike and memorable experience.

This was an amazing hike with a brilliant tour guide named Shane. So glad we did this adventure. The canyon was gorgeous and we had a small group.

We hiked this trail on Saturday 11/10 and tracked about 12.3 miles RT. The trail is well marked relatively busy. For me, the altitude and gradient were very doable, but I got pretty tired at about 10 miles. The other hikers were very friendly and were willing to step aside on narrow parts of the trail. The view was a little smoky due to wildfires but the visibility was still decent. The weather is perfect this time of year!! Cool in the morning and at the top, so bring a light jacket. We got a late start at about 9am and had to walk about 8 minutes from our car to the trailhead. It took us 4 hours to summit and a little under 3 to get down. Overall tiring and fun hike! (And of course, stopped at the Buckhorn for nachos and beer on the way back ;-) )

A nice little hike that includes all major arches. I suppose this is THE thing to do in arches NP. It wasn't always clear to me where the trail was, but nothing dramatic. There are a lot of people if you don't go too early, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Snagged a wilderness permit and we did the 16 miles down... sleeping overnight at campsite 10. Was amazing!!

Boring. Easy.

One for the bucket list.

We do this every weekend, the dogs love it!

Hiked this on Sunday 11/11/18. It was beautiful and not as hard as I expected. What made this beautiful hike difficult was the freezing cold winds.

Wonderful hike! Just enough water to make the crossings interesting and challenging.

I love this trail. Its some great exercise and about 6 miles. You get a pretty good 15 minute climb at the end and get to stand up on the lighthouse rock structure at the end which is really rewarding. Ive hiked it a few times and mountain biked it as well. Great hike to take visitors.

I consider this hike to be like a salad and steak type of hike. The road to the top (which is 2.5 miles making this actually a 5 mile hike) is rather mundane. However, when you get to the hotel ruins, it’s fascinating to explore. You then do the last pitch up to the summit to see a great Firetower and without a doubt the best views in the Catskills. We got there at 8:00 and got good parking. We were back at 10:15 and the parking lot was full. There is more parking 1/2 mile up the road, but this will add a mile to your hike. The best Firetower hike in the Catskills.
