A very fun trail, good for almost any level of experience hiker. The initial decent into the canyon is he only “hard” part that could be challenging on the way back up. But for any reasonably fit person it’s super fun. We did it two days before thanksgiving and rented dry socks, boots, and dry pants which I think was totally worth it to be able to walk through the water and play around. It was about 40-50 degrees and just a tiny bit cold on the feet but once you’re moving we stayed very warm and we’re not at all uncomfortable. There were people that did it with regular boots on and managed to stay dry it just takes a little longer to navigate around the water at times. In terms of timing it took us about 5 hours to complete. Started at 8am and finished around 2pm. We stopped to take photos about 3 times for approximately 10 minutes each time and a 20 minute lunch break. Would love to come back and do this in the summer!!!

Great hike! We went on 9/18 and the trail was still perfectly fine to hike. Some points had snow and were a little slick, especially right in the beginning, but we were just fine in regular hiking shoes. The falls are partially frozen and gorgeous! The trail was not very busy either. We brought our dog, and she had a blast. This trail is rated moderate with some up and down hill, but probably pretty easy for more experienced hikers.

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.

As advertised, the first mile is very steep but then mellows out. It took me 1 hr 10 minutes up with some snow on the trail (Nov 17) during the last half mile. It snowed all day and the lake was covered in snow. Definitely will do again earlier in the year.

Hiked this trail veterans day. The gate was still open. parking lot says three forks tailhead, but it's for fifth hotsprings. there's a restroom in the Parking lot. come early. By 1 the Parking lot is crowded. I started at 10:30 and it was 28 degrees. Beautiful hike. lightly dusted with snow. springs were beautiful, not crowded and warm. trail is easy to find, but I had no cell service so be prepared. enjoy!

Phenomenal. Gate was still open as of 11/12/2018. No need for trekking poles. Small ups and downs, but nothing to terrible.

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.

Excellent hike this morning. Predawn start to catch the sunrise from the top. Fresh layer of snow 1-2inches. The streams are frozen over enough to support my 200+lbs. Didn’t attempt the lake although it looked pretty thick. Plenty of deer to be seen and some moose tracks.

Yes, it's a difficult hike/climb but it's very scenic. If you follow the creek all the way and make your own path you can get to the mountain top in a few hours at a leisurely pace.

Loved this hike!

I brought two 11 year olds and an 8 year old. The trail got a little bit muddy as it got warmer. Overall, it was really fun and beautiful.

Good casual hike. Negligible snow. Minimal ice and mud. Lake was frozen over but not enough to walk on.

Great, pretty easy hike in November. It was more crowded than we expected for a Thursday in November. The water felt great. Several cows were in the area when we got to the springs (but not too close to the water, thank goodness!) Parking lot was over full when we got back to the trailhead after 1 pm.

This hike did not disappoint! started at 9 am and finished by 430, but we really really took our time. the weather was gorgeous and our hiking boots and smart wool socks were fine for the hike. perhaps bring an extra pair of socks or get neoprene if youre worried. this time of year the water didnt even touch our ankles. be prepared to climb and navigate
the hike is not too difficult but definitely is technical. also, be prepared to work your butt off when Climbing back out.

one of my favorite hikes ever

Another wonderful hike in Zion. This was a long day hike. We felt the warnings that came with this hike might have been overkill. “Route finding required” basically just means there isn’t a paved path; there’s multiple paths braiding both sides of the river. Other than the hike in and out of the valley, the hike is not challenging, but it is still a long day.

The subway was rad, and a main reason for visiting Zion. It’s a must do trip if you can get a permit.

is the gate closed yet?

From Silver Glance I pretty much went straight up the mountainside to Silver Lake Peak.

Made it to the saddle, about 700 feet from the summit, but time and conditions forced my hand to turn back.

Started to get sketchy at this point of the ridgeline requiring bouldering / scrambling on ice covered rocks with a good depth of snow in some spots.

Disappointed to not summit but proud of myself to be able to summit future summits by not summiting this one.
A different route / time of year / companion(s) are probably needed.

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.

Super fun trail 100% recommend

Road to trailhead was still open today. Beautiful but busy day. More than enough space in the hot springs for everyone. Excellent moderate hike.

is the road to the trailhead still open? I know they close it once the weather turns then it is closed til spring.

cold today but decent conditions. some muddy spots but not too slippery. packed down snow last half mile. brought spikes but didnt use them.

Great day hike. Beautiful views. Good for dogs.

Better than I expected!! Beautiful scenery every step of the way:))

Favorite hike to get some headspace!

I didn’t find the views really worth the effort on this one. It’s a short punishing hike for sure.
