Feel’s like I’m in Jurassic park! Falls are a nice cool down at the top.

Beautiful walk through the rainforest. Feels like your in jarrassic park!

Great first impression of trails on the island. Had a mixture of refreshing rain and sunshine breaking through at various points. Numerous photo opportunities , especially at the end of the trail of a fantastic waterfall. Highly recommend for any skill level, although near the top it can become a little slick for elderly. I have had to help hold a few hands to ensure they see the view.

Hiked with a 10 month baby and thought the hike was pretty good. It’s super steep going up and gives you a great challenge. I’d recommend hiking boots and water!

Little buggy but super fun!

A very difficult hike, but so rewarding!

Hiked this on Sept 7th. Camped at Emerald Lake. Left trailhead at 4 pm. Reached lake by 7. Lots of vertical gain. A few streams near the start give you an opportunity to fill up on water. Highly recommend. From there, the next source is Emerald Lake. Was merely a pond on the 7th; it will dry up. Very few people this late in the day; beautiful. Camped. Next day - traversed to the saddle. Left pack at saddle. Took me two hours to summit from Emerald Lake. Gorgeous views of the Salt Lake Valley and the Wasatch Wilderness. Well worth the mental and physical challenge of the steep vertical, and relentless switchbacks.

Important to realize Emerald Lake is not a part of this trail. Must go well out of the way for water, and as I said, would be surprised if the lake makes it much longer. Bring more water than you need.

This hike was great. The trail immediately takes you into the wilderness feel. It’s short, but the scenery, especially the large open area at the bridge, is the most beautiful I’ve personally ever seen.

Favorite hike! I’ve done it 7 times and it’s a new experience every time.

Left at 3am from Timpanooki parking and made the summit at 8:30am. The sun came up right at the meadows at 7am. The wind at the Sandle wasn’t too bad with the sun up. Great and difficult hike.

we did this hike in the rain and the waterfall was great! I would not at all call this kid friendly- the top is eroded and required nimble feet and some climbing

Amazing trail that starts out easy but certainly is a little challenging as you get close to the waterfall.
Saw a few people with flip-flops which is not recommended.

You have to park in one of the parking before trailhead on your right, It’s $5 for fee. Trail is in very good conditions except at some points it gets muddy and slippery but not too bad. The day I did there were not a lot of people around but I read that this does get super busy. Such a beautiful place. Took me 25 min to get there and 20 min to get back to parking. Enjoy
Happy hiking

I loved every moment of the trip. People were amazing and helpful, we started to hike around 0430 hours reached there at 1030 hours. It won’t take long if you have a day pack. But it’s not a place for day hike, you have to carry tents and all other gears to stay there. There are mule carriers that you can use to get your luggage transported to campgrounds. Beautiful places, water feels soothing, of course after that long hike you need it. Overall my experience was really awesome. Try to start as early possible in both ways to avoid heat.

You are in a rainforest. So it will probably rain. Plan on it! $5 to park in the cafe parking lot. There is NO PARKING closer to the trailhead so that parking lot is the best and closest available. Beautiful place!

This wasn’t a bad hike. It’s definitely not kid friendly so I wouldn’t take your little ones. If you don’t read the description make sure to follow your map. It is easy to get confused. I enjoyed it but won’t do it again..

Nice trail with lots of people. Trail keeps getting wider with all the people getting off the main trail. Pool at the top is roped off but several people were in it. Nice place to cool off the feet. Took about 1.5 hours with multiple stops. I would recommend tennis shoes or better. It is somewhat slippery near the top.

Easy but beautiful hike. We took our time and a lot of pictures. You're not allowed to go in the water but everyone does. There's a lot of people in the late morning and early afternoon.

Long hike, started at 0400 there and 0200 on the way back to beat the heat. The falls were magnificent, each site with its own personality. Loved every second of it!!

Locals yelling politically charged racial slurs repeatedly throughout the hike through the canyon as well as the village would keep me from recommending or returning to this place. The population of aggressively and outwardly racist villagers (to whom you must pay a lot of money for the privilege of visiting) is a minority, but a very vocal and significantly disruptive minority just the same.

Fun hike! The trail gets a little difficult to follow descending into slide canyon, so make sure you have the map downloaded. Coming down the face of y mountain can be tough on the knees and pretty hot. About 70 oz of water was perfect for me and it took about three hours. Watch out for moose!

Not for the feint of heart once you pass the meadow. The trail hugs the side of the mountain pretty closely in a few places, and there are some scree piles you cross. Once you reach the saddle, the rest of the trail to the top of Timp requires some basic scrambling, and you need hands and feet in a number of places. it's quite steep.

This hike is beautiful, rewarding, and challenging all at the same time. the view from the saddle is beautiful, but the view from Timp is awesome. There is very little water along the trail, and very little shade the last half of the trail up. Bring sunscreen and water (I brought a full gallon).

We also saw some pika, two female moose, and got some great selfies with a mountain goat.

please pick up your trash, too!!

A beautiful waterfall is your reward after a nice 30 hike

Easy and short hike to the falls! Views in the park are amazing but it was a bit to crowded, too many other tourists.

Beautiful views all the way to the top! Definitely worth an early start. Not too difficult, just long, as others mentioned.
