My favorite! We stop off at little spots for hikes along the by way.

Great trail. Steep at the beginning, but it levels out and you get some nice meadow views of Timp.

I enjoyed this hike. It is really exposed so it’s hot...make sure you bring lots of water.

Scenic. We hiked in the afternoon which was ideal as it was shaded. Majestic views all around! We hiked from the 6th tram stop back down to the 5th. Enjoyable.

So many mud pots. It's my first time to see the boiling mud. Very cute.

We loved this saw Provo river falls on the way to the lake then walked the trail around the lake

This trail was well populated with families, as it should be (keep them off Angel's Landing!!!) It's an idyllic hike to a cool pool, with many opportunities along the way to drop into the river. I'd recommend this for a hot summer day because of the access to water.

A lovely hike if you're looking for a trail that takes you by (and in) water. It'll cool you off a little if you're a summer hiker.

Easy trail. Nice views through the valley. Only 3 stars as it is just not comparable at all to some of the other hikes you can do in Zion. If you only have one day in Zion and are happy to do a harder hike I would suggest hiking Angel’s Landing (even if you don’t do the chains) or Observation Point.

on Wheeler Creek Trail

This hike starts off next the river but looses it about 1.5 miles and it gets hot! We started in the morning but by afternoon there wasn't a lot of shade. I was confused by the trail markers, I was looking for wheeler trail but in the middle of the hike all you see are signs for Maple or icebox. I just kept going south in hopes of going the right way. We didn't make it to the end because we ran out of time, maybe someday in the fall.

Middle and upper pools are closed I would save your time and energy for another hike. Was extremely crowded around 10:30-11 am when we went.

Nice and cool along the creek.

this was the only trail we could do in the time we had as we arrived at 5 and left at 7. you take shuttles to the various trails which took up some time. The valley was shady. the pool was not spectacular but the trickling water was nice to see and hear. Views of the peaks with the setting sun striking them from the shadowed path. easy hike.

This trail is awesome! I can't believe I've lived in Ogden most of my life and never tried it out before. We only hiked about 3 miles of it, but it was beautiful and mostly shaded. Very easy trail at the beginning, but I've heard it can get steeper and harder the further you go (will update when I have more info). This would be great as a beginner mountain bike trail. I plan to come back and try it out for that.

fun little walk

Scenic trail with good views and leading to a small waterfall.

Great morning hike. Beautiful views & close to home

This was our first loop / home at Yellowstone, an excellent way to start. Relatively short and super informative, many interesting features to see.

Beautiful! A great way to start your morning. We started trail at 7am and returned by 10am. We came across 7 mountain bikers and only a few hikers. Pleasant.

Hiked this in the spring and once before. Fun but quite crowded.

Beautiful place but sharp rocks on the way make it a very slow hike and a challenge is you’re like us who did it with a bunch of young kids. We also got to the point 2/3 through the hike where we didn’t know where to go as the road seemed to have been blocked by large boulders. I suppose that’s why this hike is labeled as “moderate” difficulty.

I really enjoyed this hike with the running water of the Virgin River next to some of it. The waterfall was nice and there’s so much to look at along the way.

Great views and nature, not too crowded so that is always a bonus.

Due to flood damage we were only able to hike the lower emerald pool. Not a bad hike but nothing overly special either. I’m sure it would have been a much better hike if we had access to the middle and upper pools.

Wouldn't recommend during the heat of the day

The dirt road to get to the trailhead is a rough 5 miles. The trail itself becomes little more than an overgrown game trail for the last 3/4 of a mile. That being said, the views of Utah Valley, American Fork Canyon and beyond (great back view of the twin peaks), and the front, usually unseen side, of Timp, make this fun to do at least once. My 4 year old and 2 year old only had problems with the wildflowers and other plants that lined the trail that we brushing their arms, legs, and faces - since they were shorter than the plants.
