Spectacular even on a cool November day!

Beautiful hike with amazing views of Timp. We got some directional help at the top to circle around on the Salamander trail which was perfect.

Loved this hike! At the end we received a real cool surprise. Sitting on a rock near the little pond just talking with my wife when a strange sound from above broke the silence. A long rope came flying down from the top of the canyon and landed in the pond. The end of the rope was measured almost exactly as only the last two feet hit the water. A few minutes later a young lady repelled down the canyon wall from above. We took pictures and videos for her and then sent them to her email. Then her male companion threw a heavy bag down. I’m sure glad I didn’t try to catch it, it would have broken my body into pieces. All in all very entertaining and a fun learning experience. Don’t miss this hike!!

Hike was short but the weather couldn’t have been better. The first lava tube was more for the caving type, steep decent. I wouldn’t recommend for younger kids. Or an older person like me (60). The second tube on your right had an easier decent that almost anyone can navigate. It doesn’t go very deep but it will be fun for the younger kids and us old folks. Really hard to get lost in this cave. Sign at the entrance is good to follow. Perfect hike on a hot day. I’ve enjoyed this fun little hike for over 44 years. If your in them at dusk I’m guessing the bat population exiting will start your heart a pumping. Saw bat guano in both lava tubes.

Easy loop trail with scenic variety of forest, meadow and panoramic views of Timponogos which steal the show. Definitely layer up this time of year, but I was sweating in the sun when protected by the trees. The melting ice also makes the path very muddy and surprisingly slippery, so be careful.

The most amazing place we visited at arches. It's awe-inspiring to be nestled under the huge double arches. There's some not-too-steep rock climbing that our kids loved.

Short hike with a beautifully groomed trail. Waterfall was dead when we passed through but totally worth the hike!

Tough to find....... well worth it:))

Took the puppers up here today, was a mild hike, views of Timp are amazing, there is a nice mix of shade and openness. It was a quiet trail (Sunday) only came across a couple of people. Was a little muddy in spots from snow melt after the warm weather.

no snow, ice, or even mud as of 10/25. gorgeous sunset. need a headlamp this time of year if going after work.

Lovely, beautiful And adventurous trail! Captivating landscapes and rock walls!

Nice hike, not allowed to hike up near enough to the Arch to see sky beyond Arch. Thus not as exciting of an Arch as I hoped.

Fun trail...was actually on my way to Scout Cave but missed the marker so we ended up doing both. Pretty great canyon walls & a cool little water hole at the end that my dog Annie was diggin!

easy hike, amazing rock formations but very crowded


The hike was beautiful! The water was very cold!

The loose softball sized lava rocks were a pain in the butt on a bike. The scenery makes it worth doing, but if I do this trail again, I’ll leave the bike at home.

Snow and slippery conditions after about 1.2 miles up. Microspikes recommended. Mucky mud too, but it was only really bad in a couple of spots. Winter is coming! Still a great hike, lovely view of the pines topped with snow much of the way up. Walking slower since I didn't have spikes, it took me 2 hours up and 1 hour down with a short break at the overlook. Also, it actually just under 5 miles round trip, not 4.1 miles from the description.

Super fun
Great work out with family


Beautiful day and an easy hike with great views of rock walls!

Such a beautiful hike the entire way!!! I wish I was wearing more water appropriate shoes. It makes me want to buy Chacos. I hiked in my hiking boots and it took two days to air them out haha. There was a forest fire on the day I went and the sky was this gorgeous orange color even tho it was around noon time. The orange sky bouncing off the colors of the walls of the creek and the slot canyon were to die for. I want to bring friends here and see it again!

Great hike! Nice elevation so it’s just enough of a little workout. Amazing view at the end!

Awesome trail! To go to upper falls, drive on to that parking lot. After crossing the bridge you have a choice. If you go right you will see the building with graffiti. This is the main trail behind the building
. If you go slightly left instead you will see the pink ribbon trail. This is a lot less steep and rocky. Much easier.

Absolutely beautiful with the fall colors.

Almost no traffic. Moderately steep, but my kids did great (6, 8, 11, 13). Great views of Timp, the leaves were in full color.

Hiked all the way to the second ladder but did not go up the second ladder. It was supposed to be decommissioned, also there were a few people struggling with it and we didn’t feel like waiting so we turned around.
Water level was ankle-high most of the way, only hip-high in a few spots. Beautiful trail! Make sure you wear proper shoes. I wore water shoes which worked fine. The trail was moderately trafficked this last Saturday afternoon in September.

Exactly what it said in the reviews! The falls were dry but still super fun hike, you can climb in the cave where the falls come out when they're dry and look down there, that was pretty cool!

Awesome trail, must wear proper waterproof hiking shoes.
