We hiked in the afternoon. There was quite a bit of the trail in the sun; not as shaded as I would have preferred.

Really good view, really steep. Good warm up for upper bells reservoir in my opinion. West slabs scramble is a lot more adventurous, but couldn’t find anywhere to rate.

Love this hike. It’s awesome. The water slide at the end is cool too. Not sure why it’s rated hard though. This is moderate. Don’t be intimidated. It’s pretty trafficked though for sure. One of the best endings though.

About 2 miles up when you approach the sign that points to the waterfall take a sharp left down onto the smaller trail. We thought it was telling us to go straight so we missed the turn off. Took a little over 2 hours round trip

Suuuper steep but 100% worth the view. One of my favorite hikes of all time.

Great time of year to go. Wild temp change from sweating hot to super cold towards summit. Definitely exhausted at the end but totally worth it. Didn’t actually need that much water. 1 liter this time of year was good for me. Friend took the wrong path near top so be sure to stick to the trail. You reached the top when you find the black mailbox.

真的很棒,最后一段的攀爬那简直就是精华。很累,费腿。
值得一去,但是强度不小。

Did this hike yesterday and it was so worth it to see the view at the top! It’s defiently a harder hike with a steady incline. On Sunday not many were using the trail and it was cloudy so it was a great day to go. Only thing was you start getting into some steepness and straight rock climbing the last little bit. It was also crazy windy so just prepare for it. I’m sore now but I will do it again!

Real steep but doable. There is some scrambling near the end on some pretty exposed rock. Take your time on this one, the views are worth the hike.

What a great trail. Definitely less traffic than the south side trail and phenomenal views of the South peaks. One of my favorites for sure.

Very well maintained trail. Lots of beautiful colors going into the fall. Plenty of water for dogs. I didn’t really notice any poop along the trail except people would leave it on the ground in a baggy to pick up on the way back. Nice gradual incline. Overall my dog loved it so that’s all that matters

Really fun scrambling up after the saddle, to the Peak. Not as hard as I was lead to believe. Totally worth the effort for the view!

Steep. Yes. Difficult. Yes. Just keep pushing and the views are totally worth it. There is a log book on top. The scramble scary part is only about 15ft the rest is much easier ish. Lol.

Awesome!

As billed, busy and lots of cute puppies along the way, but beautiful Fall colors and the weather was perfect. Pretty easy hike/run all in all.

This is a pretty fun trail! It's more exposed than other long hikes (for example, Timp), so it's not as beautiful vegetation-wise, but there are some trees and the leaves have started to change, and there are of course some great views. My favorite part was the rock scramble at the top. The overall hike wasn't as hard as I expected. Although it's steeper than Timp, it's a lot shorter, so that makes it a little bit easier. I drank the last of my 2 liters just as I got to the bottom. It took us 3.5 hours up and 3 down, which I'd say is on the slow side for someone in decent hiking shape.

Great hike for those who want superb valley views while getting a definite workout. The trail is steep and mostly sun exposed so it's best to hike earlier in the morning during late spring to early fall. Take plenty of fluids with you and pace yourself. The last mile is the steepest part of the trail. The views on top are really good if you complete the final rock scramble to the top. Be careful as you ascend this section. The views from the saddle below the summit are still really good so don't feel badly if you stop there. I hike Mt. Olympus a lot so I generally go to the saddle only. This is one of the perfect hikes for a great workout with valley views.

Incredible hike this morning. Plenty of parking on a Friday morning at 6:00 AM. Been wanting to conquer this peak for years now but kept getting intimidated by the scrambling at the top and the elevation gain. Being a person who fears heights I never felt like I was in any real danger today. I recommend coming down the steep boulder sections by doing a “Butt scoot/crab walk.” I got down really quick by doing it this way. Sounds crazy but it worked out well and felt safer. Be sure to read the inspiring and also very funny words of wisdom from the mailbox at the top.

Great hike to challenge yourself if you are looking for something a but harder than most of the hikes around the area. Even if you don't decide to make the scramble to the peak, the saddle just below it is well worth the hike, beautiful. The last part is a bit sketchy but the peak is epic (be careful up there lots of loose rock).

One of the hardest climbs I’ve done. The hike is long. The last half mile is a vertical climb up boulders to the summit. Amazing views and a mailbox with journals so you can add your name and an entry, to the collection of others who conquered the mountain.

Definitely a struggle, but the view is worth it. My group started really early, and it took us about 9 hours to finish. 5 hours up, 4 hours down is usually the time. At the top you can see the whole valley, and can't stress enough how nice the view is.

I didn’t make it all the way up, super intense.

This trail is the real deal. A friend and I hiked it Saturday and it was intense.

I completed this hike via Bowman Fork Trail, adding an extra .5 mile, but I felt it was important to give advice on the final accent to the peak. Trail was amazing!

When you are at the intersection (turn left for Gobblers Knob or right for Mt. Raymond), you will turn right. After going up roughly .3 miles, it will seem as though the trail ends. There will be a steep drop off/cliff to your right and a large left-sloping rock face in front of you. You need to scramble up the ridge of this rock face (30 yards or so) and then you will find the trail. Took me a while to figure it out so I hope this helps.

One of my favorite hikes in Utah County. I've probably hiked it 20 times. The Horsetail Falls are spectacular but you need to be very careful on the rock. It's incredibly slippery.

I couldn't walk for 2 weeks but the view was great!

This is labeled an out and back, but more accurate is an up then down. 2 miles straight up with maybe 2 or 3 very short flat sections.

Coming down is no picnic with old knees.

Great trail, but if you have bad knees don’t do it. Check it off the list once is enough.

if I could be in a steady relationship with a mountain...I would.

i love this trail but im currently in the hospital because of my last hike there with a broken femur and pelvis to not get into too much detail. the rock is extremely slippery. do no get close to edge if not secure, do not walk on wet rock if not secure. this is one of the most amazing hikes in my life but i almost died because i underestimated some slippery rock
