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.

Very nice trail, well marked. joins up with be at Allegheny passage, take that and wander around the fern trails. Not very strenuous and Cucumber Falls is amazing

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.

Did on Jan 3, 2019. One of the most awe-inspiring, beautiful, out-of-this-world hikes! Especially in winter with the snow dusting the rocks. Parked at the lot near sunrise point. Started at sunrise point, went down queens garden trail, continued onto Navajo loop (Wall Street portion was closed but took the other leg to get to sunset point, then walked along rim trail to get back to sunrise point. Did the hike in hiking boots— was a little icy/slippery especially at the tops of the trail near sunrise point and particularly sunset point, but hiking boot were fine. Wouldn’t really recommend doing it in street shoes during winter when it’s icy— lots of people slipping especially trying to go down the trail from sunset point (more heavily trafficked in that area so the ice was slicker)

Definitely a great trail, went down queens garden to Navajo (also did the peakaboo loop) and we wore traction going up Navajo because of the ice. The hike was gorgeous and highly recommended, but I was glad we asked the ranger who recommended going up Navajo instead of down this time of year.

Hiked this for a second time and loved it! Definitely one of the more scenic hikes in the PHX area.

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!

this place fuckin sucks dick

This trail is absolutely great and its hot springs a must have for everyone who wants to stay in - the surrounding area of - Las Vegas!
We hiked the trail on a nice, sunny but chilly day in January and were pretty amazed how warm it got nonetheless while walking in the sun. So definitely not to recommend for hot Summer days!
We walked it counterclockwise, starting with the Arizona Hot Springs and returning via White Rock Canyon. We enjoyed it pretty much, especially the relaxing bath in the hot springs - which are indeed very hot :D
Definitely worth it! We will come back when we are in Vegas again :)

A nice hike to get a decent workout in. Only a few nice views other wise you’re mainly within the forest. Still one to take.

Prolly the hardest I’ve done thus far. I got winded and had to stop a couple times. And the last mile and half was kinda scary considering holding on to dear life and it’s very heavily trafficked.

We went up to Nevada falls via the Mist Trail and then looped back down the John Muir switchbacks. If you like to hike you must do this - it’s beautiful and rewarding. I love this hike. We went when the falls were just thundering and we were soaked so be prepared for that possibility depending on how Vernal falls is running. If you’re in Yosemite and have not done this hike just do it you will not regret it! Spectacular views.

5 stars for the actual trail, 3 stars for the crowds. Did this around Christmas 2018 (no crampons here, as it was about 50 F!) and despite the shutdown, the park was packed, and this trail was probably the most populated. It is, without doubt, a singular trail in terms of beauty and terrain- there are few others trails that offer the same experience as this one (Kauai’s Napali Coast comes to mind). It is well-maintained and offers truly breathtaking views of the canyon, some of the best being before you even reach the iconic summit on the (extensive) switchbacks, and all of this in a accessible and manageable 5 miles out-and-back with readily available facilities nearby. The price, of course, is that you won’t find much privacy or serenity along the trail, as it will almost certainly be packed with fellow hikers (see aforementioned accessibility). This is probably most apparent at the beginning of the chained sections, where you’ll find yourself waiting in line as group passes in the other direction- we routinely found ourselves stationary for 5-10 minutes at a time. As long as you expect this going in, though, this is a worthy investment; you don’t do this hike for the peace and quiet, you do it for the view and the rush of climbing that spine. Zion offers plenty of serenity and solitude within a 5-10 minute, and I definitely recommend exploring so of the lesser-known areas of the park (Cockeye Falls!) after finishing with this beautiful trail.

Super trail . But go realy early

Did this trail 12/29/18 - has amazing views at the top and on the way up, light snow dusting the red rock was exceptionally beautiful. Trail is well marked and has a gradual climb up switchbacks until you get to the chains. Icy conditions on the rocks made holding tightly to the chain a necessity, make sure you have a good grip and wear gloves to avoid raw hands. We didn't have any traction devices but they are highly recommended for secure footing. Be cautious if hiking in winter conditions and enjoy the expansive view at the top down the river

My favorite hike I've taken in Tonto Forest/Superstition area! I absolutely loved it. Parking available across the street in the Marina lot (the trailhead/hiking spots are nearest to the fence/road). Super varied trail with phenomenal panoramic views of the lake, Four Peaks, Battleship, Weaver's Needle, and Superstition area. Was moderately crowded on a Saturday, but thinned out the further we went. Agree with other hikers - trail was well maintained and well marked, just be sure to pay attention to the rock cairns at the river bed near the end. There isn't any specific "end point." If hikers want to try this one out but are intimated by the "difficult" rating or other reviews, I'd recommend trying it out and going the first 2-2.5 miles or so. You can always turn back whenever! The incline was the perfect workout. The only difficult part, was just the length and by the time you're coming back up on the return, you've already been hiking for 6 miles or so. Overall though, it's 100% worth it. There's also a steamboat tour at the marina and the Goldmine/Ghost Town on Route 88/Apache Scenic Drive. Not hike related, but would they seem cool if you wanted to add other nearby activities to your day.

Beautiful view

I hiked Bryce Canyon National Park in early October. Weather and temps were perfect hiking weather. We hiked down the Wall Street section and hiked back up the Navajo Trail. I did that loop as one hike. (If I had to pick, the Wall Street section is slightly better than Navajo Trail). I'd have to say that hike is probably the best and most scenic hike that I have done anywhere in the U.S. I thought it was better than any of the trails that we did in Zion. The scenery is incredible, and the rock structure and formations are so unique to any other trails I have done. The trails are a bit steep, but they aren't too bad if you are younger or in decent shape. I would rate the trails as Moderate. We also did a separate hike down to the Queens Garden section, and then hiked back up the same trail. The Queens Garden was neat to see, but was nothing like the Wall Street and Navajo Loop Trail section. I would suggest the Wall Street and Navajo Loop Trail as the loop trail to do at Bryce. As a side note, Bryce Point is worth a stop to see as well- great overlook. It overlooks the whole ampitheater area. If you are looking at the different Utah parks or considering which ones to see, Bryce N.P. is a must stop on your trip. It is so unique and totally different from Zion. You can see and hike the best trails in 1-2 days in Bryce was enough for our group.

JM trail was closed so we couldn't do the loop in mid october. Ended up doing out and back on the mist, still a great hike. Definitely one of the more popular trails in the valley, so be prepared for lots of traffic on trail.

We did this hike in mid-December. While cold on the valley floor, we quickly warmed up with both the elevation gain and increased exposure to the sun. Really busy at the base of the hike but thins out as different path options are made available. Beautiful views of the valley and two legendary waterfalls. Great places to stop for lunch or enjoy a beer. Easy to follow, although we weren't able to do the full loop due to trail closures from rockfall risk.

This was amazing. It was incredibly hot though, so you'll want to make sure to bring a ton of water. Make sure to go with someone who won't wimp out on you though. I came to Zion National Park to hike this trail, and my partner wimped out right before the end. You'll want to go all the way to the top. The view is incredible. This trail is very crowded, so make sure you are prepared to step out of people's way as they come down or up because you will not be able to pass each other unless you let them by first. Be very careful though, many have died from the fall. Hold onto the chain and you'll be fine. (Also make sure to check the weather, if it is going to thunderstorm, consider doing observation point or a different hike instead as this hike has metal poles and chains that could very easily electrocute you in the case of a storm.)
MAKE SURE YOU SEE THIS AT LEAST ONCE IN YOUR LIFE IT IS INCREDIBLE.

Challenging hike but the views are worth it. I'd definitely like to check it out in the Spring. Trail got pretty busy on the way down so start early.

Be careful! The trail is worth the effort, but gets very busy as the day progresses. I’d suggest an off-season or early day plan. Spectacular views unparalleled by other hikes!

Arduous hike, great vistas. Easier if hiked through from the lake to First Water instead on in and out.

Awesome trail that is almost completely uphill out and downhill back. This is a do not miss hike when in Yosemite. The views get better and better as you go. Completed it over New Years so it was a little icy on the stairs by the top of the falls but there is a little side route to avoid the ice if you need.

My wife and I did this hike Saturday (12/29/18). Great hike and very beautiful, but very very dangerous and can get crowded around the last portion with chains. If you do this in the winter you much have cleats to make it all the way to top due to icy conditions.

What an amazing place to visit!! The views are espectacular everywhere you look!! This trail was a little challenging,, the last part with the chains was quite scary as there are so many people heading up and down and it’s only one way.. so lots of waiting around as there are some high drops on both sides!! Enjoyed it much even though the chain part I did it alone because my bud Brian chickened out as he is somewhat afraid of heights but I still love him to pieces and he patiently waited till I got back down!!

Yeah I mean this hike is sick, the chain climbing at the end makes u feel like Indian jones and the view is nuts. Just do it
