Easy hike but great with dogs. Stream was high given the weather last week which made it challenging to navigate crossings. With dogs we had to turn before the falls as we could traverse the rock face and the stream water was deep! Summer hike would be fantastic....lots of great pools to get refreshed!

Really great hike up the canyon. Would strongly suggest grippers/yak tracks. Very icy in several spots and crossed the creek several times. Nice views of canyon walls all the way and great arch at the end. We really enjoyed it. Would highly recommend it.

Okay, it is windy. But it is an easy trail with views for days. Really amazing - esp. at sunset!

We went in January - lots of snow and ice. Found it a bit boring. Scenery in the park is epic but for 4 miles of this hike you are stuck down in a canyon. Two highlights were seeing a herd of deer and seeing a frozen waterfall. Otherwise, it was just drudging in snow. And one part was a hilariously icy scamper up rock cliff. Wouldn’t want to do that twice!

This was a fun hike and I would definitely do it again—lots of great look outs and we caught the sunset at the point which was unforgettable. The trail was pretty easy to follow and offered plenty of great views.

I did the rim trail part - easy and great views. January so some snow and ice but manageable. I tried hooking onto the mill creek trail but it was covered in ice and snow - okay to hike maybe. But no way I could run it.

Talk about a gorgeous hike with massive rock cliffs surrounding every part of the trail. This hike is a must do! The whole trail is the destination, each portion is beautiful with new photo ops. The trail begins on the right of the parking lot if you’re looking toward the Towers, and there are bathrooms at the trail head. Blew my expectations out of the water!

Easy trail and well marked. The views are great but it is hard to compete - Arches has much better trails and views. That said, this would be easy for children and families. And it is very short - 2 miles return! We hiked it during the government shutdown so there was a lot of ice on the steps, but it was manageable!

Hikes/ran this early January- lots of snow. Thankfully someone had walked it before me b/c I would have never stayed on the trail. Good views. Windy.

This trail had amazing views from every angle. The Fischer Towers were massive and the trail winds down and around them. A little slick in the winter but definitely doable!

It speaks highly of a trail if it can be even more spectacular in the snow and winter as it is in the other months.  This is that trail and more.  As I was walking, I was shocked at the Grandness of this hike.  I wondered, how do you ever describe this?  The river is so beautiful that you get to walk along and cross over multiple times.  The cliffs are just huge and GRAND in their size and they are in front of you, and on both sides of you.   Even though it is hard to come up with words, I will say I I thought the Grandness paralleled the Grandness of God.  I will warn that you really need spikes on this trail. I hike a lot and am pretty careful, but right at the beginning of the trail there was a piece of ice, (I hadn't got started long enough for me to even think I should get my spikes on), and Bam I was on my bum. Broke my tailbone. Definitely got my spikes on fast after that. There are spots to take you up higher and Dodge some of the scary ice, so watch for those side trails. also make sure your wearing a waterproof shoe/boot, or sock. You cross the river lots of times, and you will be super lucky if you don't get your foot in the water, so just make sure you have waterproof gear to keep dry. I did a 360 degree street view trail here. You can check it out on Google Earth, or on my blog.

Beautiful hike! Some good ups and downs. Little hard to follow in the beginning but then it becomes more obvious. Gorgeous to do toward the end of the day to see the sun on the spires. A special spot. Intriguing views and worth the hike!

Did the east rim trail to dead horse lookout and back on the same trail on New Years Day morning. Toward the lookout you come to the road and it was nice to cross over and see the west rim a little. The trail is easy and flat and follows the rim for lots of good views. The lookout is gorgeous. Great views of the Colorado river below. It’s definitely worth the walk (you can drive there too but walking it is better). It was 4 degrees, windy and a little snowy but very pretty. Nice option given that the national parks are closed.

We hiked this on a very cold (15-23 degrees) day in January. It’s an interesting trail that meanders around and across a stream (multiple times) at the bottom of the canyon. While some others made it without micro spikes, we were very glad to have them, especially in the first quarter mile where there were some sheets of solid ice across the trail.

Just before you get to the arch, there is a very cold shaded spot. We did not get to the arch early enough for the sun; it was already behind the canyon wall, but we still thought it was worth seeing.

There were parents with young children who made it (slowly, they said) without micro spikes, but ours made us feel very confident.

We really enjoyed the hike and think you should go!

Started my hikes with this trail. Was nice just after getting to the trail the number of people dropped off was able to make the hike and take a side hike up the one canyon got a bunch of good photos. Weather was overcast and cold

Fun hike and easy multiple water crossings. The bridge at end is a must see.

Beautiful view at the end, well marked trail.

Amazing Hike!!! This is NOT a destination trail. The whole hike IS your destination! Every corner you turn presents a new beautiful scene! The kids enjoyed this trail more than any of the others that we did on this trip, just because the trail felt more like a playground. Definitely want to do this hike again.

Loved the hike, easy, with great views. It was a bit difficult at times to see the cairns but we were able to get back on the trail. Icy and snowy at parts but we were fine with our hiking boots (no trek poles or shoe grips).

A great opportunity to experience grand views along this rim hike loop. Of course, the highlight is the gooseneck bend in the Colorado River!

Even better than those in the nearby national parks. Not too technical. Great for family. There are some ups and downs. But it is fun to see the climbers around. Summer can be hot and exposed.

Fine but not that spectacular.

if you have been to Canyonlands National Park, you can skip this. It does have some nice view points. It is flat. But it is not much different.

Worth hiking this trail to the end as it provides views on the other side of the mesa too! For more details and pics, visit https://etbtravelphotography.com/2018/11/20/best-hikes-canyonlands/

I think the better views are at the second overlook, but most people stop before then. Interesting and different from the rest of the park. For more details and pics, visit https://etbtravelphotography.com/2018/11/20/best-hikes-canyonlands/

So fun for the doggo- loved this hike (not for people who mind getting there feet a tad bit wet) As for the people saying the trail was hard to follow- it just takes some common sense. If the main trail tapers off, hop to the next biggest trail and you’ll be golden. There are also signs throughout the trail telling you where to go. So beautiful and so worth it!

As good as it gets for a moderate hike with great views! I went around 930 and pretty much had the trail to myself. this is a must do hike

Busy but great short hike !

Hard to follow the trail but our pup had a great off leash experience, which we were looking for (as allowed by the rules). We only hiked out about a mile but very much enjoyed the time. We had the place to ourselves in November. Very quiet yet close to Moab.
