What a great hike! Great slot canyon, beautiful scenery. Great access to the Paria. A must-do hike. Same trail head as the Wave, do them both!

Nice hike. I left my snowshoes in the car, but packed some crampons. The steep part of the trail (first quarter mile) was nicely packed, and I only used my crampons for one short steep section on the way down. that said, the flatter portions, particularly near the lake, were doable, but tough going with quite a bit of sinking in a few spots. If you have lightweight snowshoes, I recommend packing them up the hill and putting them on once things level out.

This place was totally and completely out of my way, but it was so worth it once I got here. The entire hike is stunning. Very few people hiking here in the winter so it felt like I had the place to myself!

The last half mile is a killer (I was NOT prepared, it was my first time hiking it). It took me almost two hours to get to the falls. Wear spikes and bring poles because it is slick. All in all I enjoyed it! I want to hike it in the summer, which I hear is harder because you don't have the snow to protect you from the rocky trail.

It's a steep hike that offers really cool views of the Salt Lake Valley. Not one of my favourites as there's no waterfalls, rivers or lakes to look at. It is doable in winter and I enjoyed myself over all, but it is exhausting fighting all that snow and it delays you. Make sure you have more time than you think you need before sunset. It's dangerous with light-hearted sliding down the steep, slick trail.

Loved this hike. Views of the valley, tree's, tree's and more tree's then opening, then tree's then the gorgeous lake. Trail was packed down pretty well until the last half mile or so. Then snowshoes would be helpful but we didn't use them. A sled would have been helpful on the way down as well.

Such an awesome hike. Did it in two days one night, but spreading it out over another night would have been nice. Started in a Thursday morning and was back Friday evening. Saw other people out but we’re alone on the peak for most of the time we were up there. Starts out forested then opens into valleys with awesome views of the surrounding mountains, then over the pass and up to an epic peak.

I was not prepared for how rocky this was. however, I had a great sense of accomplishment when I got to the falls!

This hike is great in the winter. Got to the waterfall just before dark. I recommend hiking down in the dark. Peaceful and a nice view of the city when there is no smog of course.

We did this hike today, it’s was absolutely beautiful, sunny day and blue skies above the inversion, the trail is well packed all the way to the top, you need only spikes and maybe poles, we carried butt sleds and it was so much fun on the way down

We hiked this yesterday in a light snow. It’s a quick hike, although the path is quite steep and the snow cover makes it a bit slippery. The forest is gorgeous to walk through. I want to return on a clear day in the summer to see the lake and the view.

What an awesome hike! If you have a four wheel Drive you can access the parking lot just above the trail. Pretty easy hike for someone in shape
And trail savvy. Some tight spots in a couple of the slots but amazing. Beautiful day, great weather! Went in the fall. Highly recommend

Beautiful in the winter. Went up on JAN 10, trail was well packed for most of the route but was a little spotty in the last quarter, no problems just using crampons and poles. All and all took about 4.5 hours.

The trail isn’t too difficult at all. There were some extremely wet/slushy spots that made some parts rather slippery. The waterfall itself was nice, and the water was still a decent temperature to swim. Scenery is nice, but again, nothing out of this world. Wouldn’t rate this hard like AllTrails has it, but it is a decent hike. Happy to have done it, wouldn’t be one that I did twice.

The road to the trailhead is unpaved but our Mazda3 made it just fine. Bring cash for the permit ($6 per person and per dog). The start of the hike is through an exposed flat area, and then opens up to some beautiful slot canyons. In the first slot canyon there is drop of about 8 feet where you have to make an interesting climb down some questionably wedged branches. If you’re short you may need some help on the climb up. We saw a 12ish year old boy at the end with his parents, so kids can make the climb with help! This hike is definitely worth the drive and we’ll definitely be returning.

Great trail! I did it on jan. 6th so plenty of snow. The trail was packed so you dont really need snowshoes but it makes it pretty slippery if you dont have spikes/chains or poles although we managed without either. The snow is up past my knee off the side of the trail so slipping is not advised XD The lakes totally frozen and covered in snow but theres still a beautiful view of the valley

This is a great trail to hike. The first part does get steep, but the views are well worth it. I've done this in early summer and late fall, and both times have been great, though early summer was a little swampy.

Did this hike a few days ago, the trail was compacted down for the most part. Wish I had microspikes or trekking poles, but it was still doable without. Definitely do this on a clear day if you can. It was cloudy when I did it, but still gorgeous. Took about 2 and a half hours to get to the top and a little over an hour to get back down.

Trail is in great shape for wintertime. Well packed snow until the saddle, then post hole steps for a bit. Once on the mountain ( after the big right turn at top of saddle ), it is back to packed trail. Last bit of the summit is a bit sketchy. Once on that East side, the trail normally switches back to the West, then one last switch back to the Summit, however it is just kicked in steps on the East side. Be very careful to not slip and fall, as could be dangerous. View are great, and didn't see a soul add day on the trail. Road was crowded coming back down.

Great hike today, snow was packed hard until the top. Spikes and poles helped a lot. Lake is frozen at the top - didn’t see any moose. 3.5 hours up and down

Hiked on 1/5/19, most area are covered with packed snow, but last 1/4 will definitely need snowshoe.

We had a great time on this trail. The trail was packed pretty well up to the first falls but wearing spikes helped from sliding backwards. After that the trail takes a sharp turn up and to the right which became less and less packed as we went. We brought snow shoes and switched to using those at this point in the trail. We used trekking poles the whole time though. With the warm weather today on our way back down the snow became heavy, wet and slippery.

We used smaller snowshoes on the way up. They helped with grip a lot. We regretted not just using crampons though. The trail is packed down and we took the snowshoes off and pretty much ran back down. If you do it in the winter I’d make sure to do it on a clear day. Still beautiful views. Bring some trekking poles.

awesome hike, very few people and amazing scenery.

A great alternative to Buckskin Gulch! Neat petroglyphs where Wire Pass intersects with Buckskin Gulch. I went last February and the weather was absolutely perfect during the day but very chilly when the sun set, dress in layers. There was one spot that was a little tricky getting up and down, where the tree, is but it is definitely doable. For $6, its definitely a must do.

Winter gate is closed, so it ads 1.5 miles to the start of the trail. Trail is well packed until the saddle (at about a mile in from the trailhead), only needing yak-tracks. A short segment of the saddle is not well packed- maybe from the wind blown snow. Once you make it around the corner to the right the trail up Mt Arie is again well packed except for the very final stretch to the top. The hike is quite steep from the trailhead to the saddle and still climbs afterwards, but not as tough. Amazing view all around!!!

Loved the challenge!! So beautiful! Can’t wait to go again! The waterfall left me speechless

Hiked this in December with 4 kids, aged 9-13. Great hike enjoyed by all. Had to climb doing a section using a makeshift ladder (trees) that was a bit challenging. A kind couple showed us how to get down and the it wasn’t a problem. Another young couple helped us get the kids out afterwards as it was a little high for the youngest ones to lift their legs up. Amazing views that just got more amazing as it merged with Buckskin Gulch.

This hike was beautiful with all the snow this morning. I was the first on the trail with all the fresh powder from the snow. The lower falls was had so much snow coverage that you could only hear the water trickle down. Beautiful untouched snow! Couldn’t go much farther than the first falls. Highly recommend for some stunning views!

I first hiked this canyon in 1999 and plan on returning in 2019 to do it again. Can’t wait.
