Nice incline for the first 1.5 miles. Breathtaking views. Slippery and steep on the way down. Not for casual hikers.

Hiked this trail yesterday evening. Encountered a few slick areas, but very manageable, even without spikes. Took 2 hours there and back.

Did this on Saturday and got rained out but made it to the thumb and back. A fun experience.

Well it was super icy today but it sure was easy if you have spikes on your shoes! Slippery for sure but if you’ve done it before you know to just keep pushing. If you haven’t done it before.. well, keep pushing! Beautiful fun tough work out. I always take the 1st and 2nd loop, i even took my parents from Texas in today and we finished it in 4 hours... beautiful in the snow if you ever wanna get it :)

Great hike. More challenging than I thought especially attempting it immediately upon arriving from the east coast. Well worth it once you get to the arch.

Great hike, but beware that it is very slippery and icy with the recent snow. I underestimated how slippery it would be on the way down and I fell several times. Definitely come prepared and watch the weather before you go!

There are many routes to the top! be aware when you finish the switch backs that run doing the creek there is a false summit. Go past the trail marker and you'll have to head down for a little bit before a short climb back up to reach the Arch.

Challenging for a recreational hiker & worth it - beautiful views, the arch did not disappoint!

on Crater Lake Trail

At points it feels like endless scrambling through small, loose rocks. We joked that it was like hiking on the moon! Still a fun trail with pretty views at the end (although the views would be better if there was water in the lake!).

Really beautiful hike with flowers and an amazing view, very well worth it. make sure to bring lots of water!!

Awesome hike. Trail is well traveled and moderately difficult in some areas.

Did this hike yesterday in the middle of a snow shower, and it was really nice! Like others, we missed the turnoff for the falls, but found it after finding the sign on our way back down. Apparently, we hiked nearly 1/2 a mile past it. My phone was acting up, so I wasn't able to add a waypoint to the map.

That being said, this is a really nice hike. It would be great for out-of-towners, since the elevation gain is very managable. I don't know if it was the weather, or that it was Wednesday, but we ran into more bags of dog poop than people. Seriously folks, clean up after yourselves!

Beautiful views! Went in early October and it was freezing. There was snow and ice on the trail which made it a little more difficult. In the end if you aren’t a master hiker, taking rest stops along the way to take in the sceneries will get you through it.

Excellent work out

The arch itself is beautiful. But it is clearly not a trail that deserves a "hard" rating. Most of the hikers on this trail were in casual wear and made it to the top. We saw more than one woman carrying her purse and wearing flats. If you have the gumption and the time, you will make it to the top.

Amazing trail! Why is everyone complaining about the crowd. If I was the only one out there struggling, is it even really worth it?

My first ever hike in Arizona (I ended up doing six in six days during my visit). Very enjoyable and simple, with great views every time you turn around. Lots of parking at the trailhead, as well as very friendly staff (volunteers?). I was there on a Saturday in late September at about 9:30 AM, and there were tons of people, mostly finishing, although they were spread out, so it wasn't a problem. Only saw one or two people going up while I was on my way down.

on Royal Arch Trail

A great workout, will challenge most hikers. Worth the climb, the views are amazing! Wear proper hiking shoes and take water. Did this hike with my daughter in law and we enjoyed it.

Beautiful foliage! Definitely recommend the trail to crater Lake. I hiked with two dogs by myself and do not recommend hiking this narrow trail with two dogs. It was rainy, muddy, and slippery. At crater lake it was sleeting and cold. The lake was not dry as the post from last week said although it was cloudy and views of the mountains were not good..

I’m a seasoned hiker and this trail kicked my butt! The arch is beautiful. Would’ve given 5 stars if it weren’t for the crowd (6:30am on a Friday...)

Great but strenuous hike!

Boy what a workout. Intense hike with some incredible views towards the top. While the trail can be busy (we saw no less than 30 people on a random Thursday), it is really peaceful and tranquil along the trail. Hard but totally worth it.

Killer beginning, but well worth pushing all the way to the top. Amazing views in every direction!!!

Nice quick hike. There was a large amount of bear scat on the trail, so make noise and be safe.

Beautiful views but little no tree coverage for half of the trail so wear a hat and sunblock!

This hike was difficult. Lots of steps and up hill almost the entire way. Although it was hard, it was definitely worth the hike! Go early and avoid some of the crowd.

Beautiful hike!!

Weather was great for hiking and not too many people on the trail (it was a weekday after all). Trail is pretty dusty and I can see this getting muddy after some rainfall. Really wasn't much too see as there are not any viewpoints and you're walking through dense forest. We missed the sign that points to the falls 100 yards away. It was kind of easy to miss as it doesn't really face the trail very well. There were at least two other groups that had missed it also and we were all looking for it. After finding the falls, it was disappointing to see the dismal trickle of water coming down the rocks. I'd hardly classify it as "falls". All in all, it was an ok hike.

Maroon Bells is absolutely breathtaking with the aspen tree fall foliage. This was definitely a moderate hike, it was steep most the way up and very rocky. I recommend good hiking shoes with grip due too many loose and slippery rocks. I had to stop and take a quick breather about 3-4 times on the way up, however, I’m from sea level and have only been in Colorado for 2 months. Took just over an hour out and maybe 30 minutes back. Overall a good hike minus the heavy traffic on a narrow trail along with multiple people blasting music on their cell speakers along the way. If it’s solitude you’re looking for you won’t find it here. Just gorgeous scenery.

It is stunning scenic trail with the foliage. The lake is empty now but the scene does not disappoint
