This was an awesome hike! Not too hard. 3 miles down were great. 3 miles up, was hard, but we would stop after every other switch back. My wife (46 yrs old), my daughter (16 yrs old) and my son (14 yrs old) are all in good physical shape. I am a 212 lb 5’9’ 48 yr old. However I do regularly walk at fast speeds. Cant imagine anyone not in shape doing it. Theyd be better off turning back at Ooh Ah point (1.8 miles down). Many different view points and was not crowded. Thus this was a great hike!

Was great!

There has been a report for “probable chance of flooding” in Zion this week, but rangers were still issuing permits for this hike. Just be sure to start early and use GPS and/or cairns for direction! Very easy to get lost off the trail if you’re not careful. Otherwise, amazing experience at the “Subway” area. Make sure to swim to the last waterfall!

Being scared of Heights, i was nervous about doing this. But it was not as bad as i thought it was going to be. Go early, we caught the first shuttle there. It was not that busy yet. The hike up to where Angels Landing starts, is the most difficult.

Awesome. Most inspiring, impressive, risky, spectacular view, trail I have hiked. It is only risky if you don’t take your time, do dumb things, or wear inappropriate footwear. I don’t know what I can add to the thousands of five star reviews but it is truly a memorable and taxing hike to the top. On the day I ascended I was one of the only people I saw with gray in his beard and hair! It is strenuous but worth the hike/climb. I did this with my son when he was 16 or 17 years old and it is still one of our most memorable experiences. Highly recommended, although if you have a fear of heights you may want to avoid this one. it really is safe with a chain guide on posts in all the appropriate places. But, the drop off is straight down at about 1000 feet on either side of the ridge you where you spend the most taxing time of the hike. View from the top down the valley awe inspiring! This is one you’ll want to tell everyone about.

very difficult hike, rocks very brutal on feet, ankles, and knees! recommend hiking poles, ankles hiking boots. views are great! bring at least 2 liters of water, and snacks!

I started the trail at Tenaya Lake (AKA Sunrise Lakes trailhead) and thought to myself "wow this trail has it all!" Beautiful meadows, small stream crossings, lakes, wildflowers galore, steep switchbacks that seem like they go on for days, sparking granite (because you came to Yosemite to see granite, DUH!), thrills, and most important, views for days!! This hike seems really daunting, but it's actually not that bad. Yes, it has some steep climbing sections, but a lot of downs and flat areas to rest up in between. The first two miles are probably the hardest part of the entire trail, so if you can do that section then you can surely finish! It does get a little rough towards the approach on the spine, but take as many breaks as you need as this isn't a race. I thought the spine was a little over-hyped, but I've been told I have an unhealthy obsession with heights...Be sure to keep an eye on Tenaya Lake as you ascend to keep track of how far you've come! Be sure to make plenty of time to rest up at the top, because you'll need some extra energy for the long trek down, remember those downs I mentioned earlier? Anyways, bring plenty of food and water, this is a longer hike. I did this hike yesterday, (6/14/18) and the Tenaya Lake crossing was completely manageable in my regular hiking boots. However, this is not always the case...

I’d give the views of the place a 10/10 if I could. But the fact that there are SO many people that you can’t really enjoy it killed the buzz. On top of the fact that it is a long drive from SOAZ or Central AZ.

Very cool

This one scared me as it started raining towards the end. The views were gorgeous.

Holy incline! But holy views! Love it! Went in May and not very crowded so I enjoyed myself.

Great hike. Can get crowded in the summer.

Try and get there as early as possible because the parking lot at this place is absolutely insane! It is way too over crowded and people don’t pay attention to where they’re going. The view is absolutely amazing and it’s a must see but I’m only giving it 4 stars because of how crazy the parking situation is.

I started from the Wire Pass trailhead, which has bathrooms but no water. As a warning to those who may be driving there in a small rental car like I was, the gravel/dirt road to get there is in fairly poor condition, and I had to drive slowly and cautiously to avoid getting a flat tire. I didn't have too long to spend here, so I just did 8.5 miles. The first mile+ is in direct sun with no shade, so make sure to have enough water to survive the heat and get back to your car. It was 81 degrees when I left my car and 111 when I got back 2 hours later. The narrow canyons were pleasant and fairly cool, but the canyon does intermittently open wider and is hot in the sun, so just make sure you carry enough to drink if you go in July like I did. I don't think it had rained at all recently when I went, so I did not have to go through even a drop of water. There were a lot of sections of dried mud, so I could tell where there is typically water. It was definitely an easy trail in these mud-less and water-less conditions, though it was still not entirely runnable due to thick dune-like sand in some places and incredibly rocky uneven surfaces elsewhere. I definitely can't relate to previous reviewers who rate this as hard, but the difficulty is clearly entirely dependent on the conditions, and I obviously went when the conditions were incredibly favorable. It's a beautiful and incredibly memorable trail, and I would encourage anyone to take at least a couple hours to explore it.

I’m wasnt a huge hiker when I did this but I loved it. Years and hikes later, this is still one of my all time favorite hikes

Wow this was insane. I’m afraid of heights so I had a few minor panic attacks, but I’m SO thankful I did this hike. Many hikers passed me and were very encouraging. We went in July which is monsoon season and we got caught on the top by a thunderstorm. It was fun though.

Trail was closed due to recent flooding. I was disappointed that I wasn’t able to hike it. We were told that parts of the trail were destroyed, so it will be a while before it reopens.

My daughter and I hiked this amazing trail on May 22! We started at 5:45am and made it to the Colorado River at 11am. The restrooms and campground were essential in our success. We mentally broke the hike up into multiple subsections utilizing these manmade rest areas. The hike to the river was a joy! This was our first time in the Canyon and wow! I was living on adrenaline! We spent about an hour at the river watching the rafters, eating lunch and wading in the ice cold water. The work began after lunch on the hike out. We paced ourselves but the hike back to the campground was very hot! If you are not in excellent physical shape do not try this rim to river to rim one day hike. Once we made it to the campground, we rested for about 45 minutes reclining on the benches in the shade. The hike from this point to the rim became a physical and mental challenge. Luckily the clouds helped. Where my daughter and I talked a lot to this point we internalized the challenge and really focused on the climb out. At this point you see all the day hikers starting at the 3 mile restroom and then see a lot of people from the 1.5 miler to the rim. The last four miles were very difficult. When we took the last step to the rim we had accomplished something very special. A glorious day in the wild that I will never forget and will always cherish! The total time on the hike was 11.25 hours.

Best hike I’ve done but the kids at the top really scared me

The begin is very steep but getting to the area where you hold on to chains and try to keep from slipping was very fun! Combined with observation point this trail is wonderful

Don't have any words for the views, its amazing. one of the best places i have ever seen.

Its really hard coming back up from the point you won't feel that when you going down. unfortunately i did this trail in sept when it was really hot so if you are planning it in that time it will make it more harder but not really hard if you used to do hiking. but yeah stay hydrated keep more water with you.

Amazing! One of my favorites hikes ever (along with Mist Trail in Yosemite). Really fun rock scramble type hike, and GREAT views. I was a little nervous from the pictures and descriptions, especially because the whole family (no small kids) was going and I didn't want to lose anyone, but it was not as scary once you were doing it because they have chains for you to hold on to at all the narrow parts. Everyone LOVED it! It's also not as difficult as some other famous day hikes, so if you hike regularly, you won't be too exhausted.

Absolutely phenomenal but definitely not for the faint of heart. There were a few times on the chained portion where you have few feet of space to walk with sheer cliffs on either side. Definitely try to go early in the morning because 1. the heat gets up there later in the day and 2. the sheer amount of people is insane around the early afternoon.

My group began at around 8am and finished at 1:30pm but we took our time at the peak. We were there around memorial day and there were far too many people on the climbing portion at a time. They definitely need extra rangers there before something goes awry. Bring good climbing shoes and take deep breaths during your climb, the view at the top is so worth it!

Fantastic hike with ever changing vistas. Left at about 830 AM on July 11th from Glacier Point Panoramic trailhead in summer and finished by 230 to the valley via Nevada and Vernal falls and the Mist trail. Stopped numerous times for photos and lunch at Nevada falls.

LOVED the first 6 miles during which our lizard count to other people count was 65 to 7. After Nevada falls this ratio flipped as people way outnumbered lizards and trails became very crowded. The downhill out of Nevada and the Vernal steps is a knee killer w painstaking foot placement required.

Besides the last 2 miles of knee pain and crowded trail down to the valley (which is expected in summer) this was absolutely amazing hike great vistas of Half Dome and El Capitan and numerous waterfalls..

Mt Dana has been on our list of hikes to tackle for a few years and I kept putting it off to “prepare”. We went ahead and did it last week and *ahem* lets just say I was not quite prepared. Lol It’s no joke, for the average hiker. I made it to the top in a little over 3 hours so not too bad, but I was sore for dayyyysss. The views were AMAZING.

The trail in the beginning is pleasant then turns to steep steps/rocks and parts where you may scramble over boulders and such. In my opinion, coming down was harder, I’m 43 and my knees were not happy.

I was grateful for my trekking poles!

I had a crew of 6 teens with me who did great. Overall we had an amazing time.

This canyon may be the best I have ever hiked despite the crowd. Went around 10 am but still got plenty of great shots. Would definitely go again when in the area.

Short hike, crowded and need to wear good shoes. Sand covered rock makes for an easy slip. Saw a couple people go down. Was very windy and got sand in my eye on a couple occasions. Was there early evening, maybe its better at sunset but was not impressed.
