Great hike, a lot of fun going from lake to lake. Entire family really enjoyed this trail. And the scenery is amazing!

It was a great trail for my kids and us to walk. Did explore a lot around the lake and a ton of rocky areas my kids climbed the afternoon away.

decent quick hike. hiked in, had lunch and enjoyed the falls. easy trail with a little elevation. saw toddlers having no issue.

This arch is a sunrise must. Get there earlier than 15 minutes before sunrise though because there were a wall of people setup with tripods hogging the entire photograph viewpoints at that time already. If not for the surprising amount of people I would’ve gave 5. Popular spot, so come early if you want a parking spot.

Really nice short and easy hike to cap off my time at Canyonlands. Did it towards the end of the day when the sun was setting, which really made the experience!

Absolutely amazing! Breathtaking and worth every step!

One of my favorite trails!

great hike with great views!! made for a nice escape from the smokey valley too. there is one spot that was a bit sketchy, but our dog did it no problem. you basically climb up some trees roots hanging over the trail. the falls were so cold, so I don't recommend standing under them. ;) and the flowers were beautiful too!!! I'd definitely do this one again.

This is a great hike! Fairly shaded most of the way, which is nice when it's hot! This hike is best in the summer because of the falls at the end is very temperature cool, and I would recommend water shoes or hiking sandals because you will walk through the water. It's a really fun hike, very beautiful place!

We looked all over Utah valley area trying to find a good hike for our small family reunion—something young kids, grandparents and pregnant women could do but also something that outdoor enthusiasts and avid hikers would enjoy. This hike was perfect. The drive is scenic and beautiful. The trail is lovely, albeit short, with meadows and (sometimes) flowers and spectacular views right off the path. The view right before the last ascent of the hike is lovely, and those who felt unable to climb the last bit felt satisfied to stay there. The views at the top are splendid though, and it’s not a long climb up the steep part. We enjoyed this trail so much we’ve been back twice since.

The scene you can look through the arch likes that in another planet!

A must do hike. We didn’t realize the green splotches on the ground were there to guide us so we did a lot of extra hiking. We went at 4:00 pm the last day of July so it was pretty hot and miserable until we made it to the other side of the mountain where you can view the arch from. Even in the terrible heat all four of our young kids were able to make it. They really enjoyed pulling themselves up the ladder and rope areas.

Love this hike. What a find just a few miles off the 15. Well worth the $9 entrance fee.

Easiest to jump in the creek and follow it up the canyon. Perfect for summer afternoon. Tracked it at approx. 2.7 miles and 1 hour to the 2nd ladder but I was moving at fairly quick pace. Appears trail continues quite a distance past the 2nd ladder with even taller canyon walls at some point but had to turn back before sunset. Will definitely return.

One of my favorite hikes so far. The waterfall was an amazing end to the hike.

What an incredible hike! I did it alone after consulting with some Utah friends. Right when you think you might be lost, there are green paint splotches on the rocks guiding you all the way to the Arch. Start early as there is no shade. Also wear good hiking shoes. So worth it!

Beautiful lakes. I went around 5pm so not many people, great for my dog. Casual hike.

A lot of people and hard to get pictures but a beautiful arch and view.

Awesome hike! Definitely will do it again when we’re in the area

Great easy hike with incredible views. Our 3yo hiked the whole way no problem.

Beautiful hike! Everything was green and lush on the trail. Lots of people coming down from seeing the sunrise on Timp but the trail wasn't too crowded. When we got to the falls there was only one other small group there so we got some peace and quiet and cooled off next to the water. Our little dog loved it too! Good hike for families and people of all ages!

We loved this trail! I went with my brother and 6 month baby in a carrier. We tried it once in the heat of the day and couldn’t make it with my daughter but tried again in the morning and it was perfect for all of us. Make sure you to take the right at the first fork. There is a part where you have to climb up some tree roots but it was not too bad. There were several elderly people who were hiking it just fine. In total it was about 2-2.5 hours round trip. (With lots of time enjoying the falls.)

I think this might be my favorite hike to date! Go! You won’t be disappointed.

It was a pretty boring trail until you hit the creek which was a lot more fun. Pretty view of bridal veil but nothing you can’t see from the highway. No one else on the trail which was nice. The stone couch was a nice place for a picnic.

Great view and little traffic. Nice easy hike!

Follow the green dot road! (Sung to the tune in wizard of oz!) bring lots of water if hiking mid day. Fun hike.

Beautiful scenery.

Our family has completed this hike three times now, most recently was September 2017. Our 9, 8 and 6 year-olds did well. Our 4-year-old had to be carried quite a bit. We took our time to enjoy the views etc. This hike is best enjoyed in fall, imho. The top does make me a little nervous with the children.

Fairly easy trail with good views of Zion National park and a small waterfall

Did this trail on 26Jul18 @ around 11 am. There were only a couple of sketchy spots that upon first glance, didn't know if I could make it-2nd ladder was one of them. Made it to the end. Water was 3 ft deep in a couple of spots, but nice and refreshing with the hot temp. As everyone tells you, second ladder has a couple of loose steps. Be careful. All in all, 100% worth doing. 12 of 10 stars. *Note that this trail is ~2.7 miles one way and the full trail is longer than 5.

We did this hike today with our dog. Yes, with our dog. We asked at the payment booth and the guy working it said that dogs are allowed now, they just haven’t changed the signs. It was a good hike. Very beautiful and quite refreshing with all the water crossings. It was, however, a very busy trail. My husband went to the second ladder, but since we forgot the doggie back pack I stayed back with our pup. It was so busy, we couldn’t even get the iconic ‘falls with ladder’ photo because all we would have gotten were peoples butts as they descended the ladder.
