Loved every second, on the way up at least

I hiked this on Tuesday. The trail was quite muddy and slick. The lake is frozen and covered in snow. Beautiful little rainbows reflecting in the snowflakes. I passed 5 people on the trail. It took me 3.25 hours.

It's ok, but there is so much nicer around

love this hike.
take water with you.
be ready to carry small children .yes seriusly dont get fooled by some other reviews ... :-) under age 5 is a hard and long hike for litle ones.
keep eye on children some pople thinks they dog dont need a leash and dogs run front off them by a half a miles

This trail is GREAT!! Recommend going early, as soon as the sun rises, though you could go a bit earlier as the easiest part of the trail is in the beginning, to beat the crowds. I went shortly after sunrise and met tons of people on the way back.
DEFINITELY worth hiking!! Very dog friendly

Absolutely beautiful hike. My sister and I did this hike, ages 64 and 66. Parts of it are nice and easy and parts if it kicked our butts. While the Joint part of the loop had some difficult areas it was quite short and doable. It’s tough coming back as it feels like it will never end. One of our most beautiful and most strenuous hikes.

absolutely gorgeous. after a set of switch backs, you follow a stream all the way up to the falls which offers a nice tranquil sound for the entire hike. You also see some amazing views of the mountains throughout. The hike is fairly challenging in a few places! younger children probably wouldn't be the best to bring here, but older kids would be okay. One of the best hikes I've done!

Beautiful views almost the entire time! It was a gradual incline until the last mile before the lake, but still
totally doable. Sadly .5 miles to the lake the snow pack dies out and you would need snow shoes to get through the final section so we had to turn around. Bummer, but the views up to that point were awesome.

Hiked 11/5 and went all the way up to mt O’Sullivan. Didn’t need crimpons at all unless you go up past the meadow. If you go past the upper meadow tread cautiously as there are thin layers of snow on the rocks and it can be slippery. Way up high snowshoes helped as there was 2 feet plus of snow. Gorgeous this time of year.

Amazing views all the way up. Missed peak fall by a week. Trail wasn’t marked very well but it looked like all variations lead to the same point. Phone was at 1% couldn’t record down.

Awesome hike this time of year. The aspens are changing and the golden leaves cover the ground, most were full of frost even at 4pm! I wasn’t expecting the trickle of water that comes out of the rock at the base of the arch. What a surprise! Well worth the drive out of Moab.

My wife and I did this today with our 2 year old and had an amazing time! We made it to morning glory bridge which was beautiful. Easy going all around but a few scrambles and river crossings that took some time with our 2 year old, great to have a few people there if taking kids for safety. Will be back!

This trail was amazing!
made my legs burn but so worth it!

Found a sport dog field trainer thing on the trail. find me on Instagram @savethenegs to retrieve it.

Beautiful hike! Very well marked and a good challenge! It was steep but not too hard!

Spectacular view of the SLC valley! A great Halloween hike!
Dress warm ❄️

I read that the rock fall was in the chains section. My question is can you hike up until this section and stop? Love this part of the trail and will be there November 19! I assume you can at least get to the trail split to observation point but I would like to continue to the right direction before the “chains.”

Holy crap what a trail!!! Very rewarding and yet hard , not for the fainted heart! Did this hike on Halloween day, you may see snow towards mile 3 once you get to first summit it’s all dried! Lot of people on the trail. Made it to top in 3 hours plus about half hour for breaks and picture takes, coming down was also a little challenging because of the snow that melted and now it was slushy, def hiking poles . Coming down took me 2 hrs.
Layer up as it’s very cold on the scramble area if sun is not out. Happy hiking!

I love this trail, I’ve been here several times and great incline not too steep but long. When you bet to “top” of that branches into couple trails. On the right. Ore covered and foresty and left more views and more of the similar incline as the beginning.

Full day hiking over varied terrain, over red rocks, down washes, and climbing up some ladders and rock scrambling near the end of the hike.

My favorite trail so far for Autumn colors, I went with my friend on Sunday. Very friendly trail as well enjoyed seeing everyone out with their dogs and children. Everyone greeted one another and said good morning.

Short hike, but views are fantastic. Plus, the car ride up to and through the tunnel is worth doing by itself. If you’re going through the park, you’ll need a pass.

Loved this hike! Not as steep as Red Pine but longer. I’d agree with others who’ve characterized this as moderate rather than difficult. The lake at the top is a gem. Still doable without poles or traction but It is a bit slippery in spots though, especially once it starts warming up. The snow is packed now so you don’t really need gaiters.

Snow is all gone as of yesterday. Incredibly steep but rewarding trail! The scramble wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Have shoes with good grip!

Beautiful trail. Definitely would recommend poles, snow and ice for a solid mile. Would rate this overall as moderate if not for the snow. Only a steep incline for about a mile. Almost made it to upper lake, but snow got a bit too deep without poles. Will be heading back to do again - awesome trail!

Quick and easy day hike with lots of good views and 4-5 water crossings

Well worth it! The views are outstanding! We consider ourselves pretty fast hikers, but this is a continuous incline that feels like you're on a stair-master at the gym. Roughly 7 miles round trip took us 5.5 hours total (4.5 hours moving 1 hour of breaks and pictures). We're not "climbers" and we had no problem with the "scramble" after the saddle. October 27, 2018 no snow on the trail.

The start was very rocky and not what I was expecting. Once you make the turn towards the creek, it’s beautiful. The elevation gain was slow and steady. Some parts are over grown do your not sure where exactly the trail leads. Would go again in the spring.

Great trial, especially in the winter. I'm 50+ and it is hard though.
