Loved the trail. Its pretty crowded though.

There are a lot of trails in this area and it wasn't well marked. It was a busy trail, though, so we just watched to see where everyone was going. It can get a little crowded up there, so be patient if you want to try out a particular piece of "furniture". The view is spectacular.

What a hike! This one passes through a variety of scenery and terrain. There is no way we could have made it the last leg without our spikes. The trail seemed much longer than 4.4 miles. Loved the views of the reservoir and mountains. The waterfall was more beautiful than I had imagined. Wear good shoes! This hike is no joke. We saw a family with cheap flip flops and a baby strapped on one of their backs trying to scale those rocks.

Nice short hike and conveniently accessible from University

Holy pain in the butt! Doing this hike is no easy task. The trail gets confusing once you start the scramble to the top, so when all else fails, just keep climbing!

Wow this hike was more than expected. Beauty everywhere. Loved every single point of it. A cute little reservoir, overlook of sandy and the waterfall at the end. The last leg of the hike is strenuous but keep it going totally worth it. Carry loads of water. Bottom line don’t back out. Go do it.

Beautiful hike. Fairly easy till the last 3/4 of a mile. Lots of rocks and steep climb.

This is a moderately difficult hike with great pay off at the end.

The trail was completely covered with hard pack snow all the way to lower Red Pine. It got a little soft up to the upper lakes but manageable with cleats. The accent all the way to the saddle was steep and sketchy as there were only a few tracks to help stabilize your feet. Still an absolutely beautiful day to be on the trail. All lakes are still frozen over of course but the Ridgelines look amazing under snow. Keep trekking

This hike is NOT 3 miles. About 6 to the very top. Beautiful but pretty challenging hike. Spikes are a must right now

Worth the climb. Nice view of the water fall.

Moderate Hike with awesome view!!!

Started trail this morning around 6:30. Trail is very fun right now with the right equipment. Muddy/water flow on trail, 1.5 or so, ice and snow. Not pot holing early morning until you get to lake. With sun up at top of trail minor pot holing. Equipment suggestions: microspikes (its very icy right at least half way up), trekking poles and gloves. I ran in baseball cap, tank top and tights. Hands even with wool gloves got very cold (started to hurt), until getting to top. Super fun and technical at present.

One of my favorite hikes of all time. Always such a good time. Have gone multiple times and always look forward to going again!

The Wave is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Our permits were for late March. The weather was perfect, it drizzled at times which kept the temperature perfect. We didn't use a compass or GPS... probably would've found it faster if we had. It was a rough hike for the non-hiker in the group.

Amazing! Easy hike but be very very careful with navigation, you can get lost easily.

This hike was amazing! I did it this past weekend and didn’t need spikes or snow shoes (the snow was packed down enough). Got super sunburnt on my face so wear sunscreen!

Havasu, Mooney And Beaver are all beautiful!
Definitely worth the hike.

This was a hike that was beautiful and a good workout that ended at one of the most beautiful natural shrines I have seen. A highlight on a trip full of great hikes!

Great short run — steep, rolling hills and really steep — everything you need.

We went up today and it was beautiful. Be prepared for lots of snow on the upper trail! I had my yak tracks but others on the trail did not and had to turn around before the falls. The last .5 is steep! My legs and lungs were burning but it’s so worth it to see the falls in snow and with less people than summer.

My favorite trail. It’s like constant step ups. Wear hiking boots though.

Short but semi steep trail. Very popular. Great spot to watch sunset over SL valley. Trail was dry. Dog friendly trail, with many friendly dogs. Street parking at trail head with 3 hour limit. Should be plenty of time for this trail.

The last mile or so of the trail still has packed snow, making the hike down a little slippery. I didn't have spikes and managed fine with good hiking shoes and a wooden stick I found near the trail =). The first and last parts of the trail will get your legs burning, but the view at the end is totally worth it. There's plenty of beautiful spots along the trail to stop and rest and enjoy the beauty.

Didn’t take the prior reviews seriously about the necessity of ice spikes, but stopped in REI for some YakTrax just to be safe. Glad I did. You won’t reach the summit without some extra traction. Did not bring trekking poles or running gloves, but would recommend both. If you can handle the ice/slush, the views are amazing.

Went up yesterday, still snow/slush on the last bit, tricky on the way down without spikes but doable. A great short but intense hike.

I hiked this trail a couple of times last year (2017) just lovely views and a feeling of accomplishment, specially if have to do it with a bunch of wining kids!! But overall I loved it!! Can’t wait to do it again!!
