We ended up starting from the Kraft Mtn parking lot on the advice of friends and scrambling over the red rocks to join this trail, then coming back on the trail as marked on all trails, wrapping around the red rocks and back to our car. Really loved that route as the rock scramble part was gorgeous and fun. The rest of the trail is lovely too, winds through a canyon with ever changing colorful rock formations. Went in January and it was hot- bring plenty of water.

love love this hiking trail it's my all time favorite place helps get a workout and take all your stress away its beautiful place to sit and relax at the end of the hike

Amazing 360 viewpoint. I highly recommand

Really nice hike with spectacular views of the canyon and little niches for meditation. I didn’t finish because I started too late in the day and it was getting dark, but I made it 4.3 miles round trip, so I probably was close. I hiked solo so I wasn’t planning on scrambling with the chain. Definitely would do it again and complete it.

Closed at the trailhead due to rockfall as of 1/19/2019.

I love hiking. I also love Las Vegas. Normally I don’t like to mix the two. However, my girlfriend was insistent we “get off the strip for fresh air” so we selected this trail.

Don’t underestimate it like I did (with jeans and a Vegas hangover). It’s only 5ish miles but hikes like longer. Views on the top are incredible and worth every second. I’m very glad I did it. Although most in the hiking community are incredibly friendly, we met some extra fun people along the way. We also decided that every Vegas trip going forward will include one of the Red Rock Canyon hikes.

A+++

Made it to Cathedral lake in trail runners and gaiters. Snow pack is about 3-5 feet or more and is consolidated enough to walk on without snow shoes, but expect some post holing mid afternoon. I've went up twice this winter and both times were amazing. Bring the right layers as days are short and conditions change rapidly

I hiked this trail in July and was disappointed because I couldn’t do the whole thing. It’s beautiful and the descent is not too difficult, but the trip back up will take about twice as long. I want to come back and complete the trail because of its amazing scenic route through the Grand Canyon.

First mile and a half was fairly simple to navigate and not too steep. Most people out of shape would likely struggle but if you hike, run or lift weights regularly, you’ll be fine.

Once you reach the actual mountain side, complete with switchbacks, the app will come in handy for anyone (like myself) newer to hiking, as it’s very easy to go much tougher, dangerous ways [I experienced on my way down]. There are occasional rocks with orange/blue/white spraypaint on them but it’s easy to create risky, steep routes to get to the next one if you’re not experienced. I met 2 young ladies who started at the same time but I only saw them at the top 30minutes later because they went off trail. The app allowed me to check that I wasn’t going way off. Overall, my ankles were definitely tested as the simplicity of Calico Tanks did not compare to these unforgiving angles uphill.

After lots of gravel areas, you’ll near the peak and it becomes easier to follow as the brown, treaded soil is visible. Breathtaking views await you atop. You can see the strip and all mountain tops within your eye’s reach due to the +6000ft elevation. Open the canister and sign the visitor log if it fancies you.

Coming down is partly fun, partly nerveracking due to the ease of no longer climbing but increase in slipperyness. Beware those with any knee discomfort. Hopefully you’re good at backtracking. My phone died at the summit due to the GPS draining battery so I decided to follow others once I noticed myself jumping/dropping down while they were just walking down it 10 meters beside me.

Go early. Its a popular trail & it becomes too trafficked-especially when the park is in full swing

The only hike worth doing over and over again, so many new ways to hike it, especially if you’re a climber.

This was the scariest thing I've ever done. I'm proud of myself for doing it because I'm terrified of heights but I won't ever do it again. We were appalled at the people hiking to the top with small children. Yes, it's beautiful but it's also dangerous. Be safe.

Beautiful, challenging, slippery, and a grind. Did it one year ago. I am in my 60s and trained. It was an excellent challenge, every step requires focus. You will be present or else.....

One of the most amazing hikes I have ever done! Incredible views all along the way. The lakes are very beautiful! Took my time to stop for eating some snacks and take a lot of pictures and it was about 6-7h hiking. Highly recommend it!

1/11/19 heavy ice on beginning of trailhead. do not attempt without crampons.

1/11/19 Incredible hike and views. Ice is present on the wiggles and from the first set of chains. It is possible to get past first set of chains without clamp one but would not recommend. very easy to slip.

Went up on New Years Eve, it had snowed about an inch the night before and everything was absolutely beautiful. The shuttle was running and we caught the second or third one out at 8:20. There were about 40 people hiking the switchbacks around us, but that number dropped to about 20 when we hit the chains because of the snow.

I would NOT go past the first short stretch of chain without micro spikes. Several portions were extremely slick, and the couple hiking ahead of us without spikes made me nervous. About 90% of people we saw that day had spikes on. Well worth the $20.

Took us almost exactly three hours total, from hopping off the shuttle to getting back to the stop. It was starting to get crowded as we came back down, which would have added a lot more time waiting for the narrow parts to clear up before passing.

GREAT hike! Definitely need cramp-ons to do this safely right now. Absolutely stunning views, and not heavily trafficked at all. 10/10 would recommend.

Nice view from the top

Amazing! Tough for the first hard and descent was a little tricky.

I loved hiking this trail. I did it with a group over four days. It could be less but we were working with some altitude difficulties. Go if you can!

Steep, but not too difficult. I did not like how exposed the last mile was on the sheer cliff face, but I am afraid of steep cliffs.

A lot better than Angels Landing, because this is less crowded.

Absolutely great views, I would do it again.

One of, if not the most spectacular hikes I've ever experienced! Amazing view of the canyon and a thrilling trail that towers above the river below!

I love the trail! Its a bit challenging but at the end of the trail, you can see a bridge, and there are a hot tubs to get into. Along the trail, you have to do like 4-5 rappelling.

Descended the Kaibab trail on January first and spent two nights at Bright Angel campground. Hiked up Bright Angel. An Amazing trip! Snowed New Years Eve so we had an absolutely beautiful setting for our trip. Train for the downhill hike as it sure kicked my............ The Ascent on the Bright Angel was gorgeous. It helped to have layers as we went from 40 degrees to 18F. Traction device for boots also helpful above Indian Gardens. We left Phantom Ranch at 10 am and most of us were out by sundown so headlamps are recommended. Some young hikers did down and up in one day stopping for a beer at Phantom Ranch! Not for the Faint! Hope to do rim to rim some day!!

Great view at the top. Sicking to the left during the climb and following the trail markers will make the climb easier.

We made the mistake of going to the right and ended up doing a difficult scramble to get the the saddle of the peak.

The registry at the top has some great comments. Definitely worth the effort.

We were planning on going to this hike again this year, January 2019, but the road just past Hanalei town is closed to through traffic. We parked and walked for about 1/2 a mile to get a look at the construction/work going on. Only trucks and heavy machinery, hauling lots of dirt, moving large rocks etc. heard it is closed until Summer of 2019. I believe some people will still get there by sea, but once open, that trail is going to be a bit more tough as the foot traffic will be about 95-98% less than normal for roughly a year.

this place fuckin sucks dick
