difficult but worth the view!

Great hike to see an amazing attraction. I recommend getting there early, since the crowds get large later in the day.

Beautiful scenery, challenging hike, wonderful views.

A bit of a "meh" from me and my 12 year old daughter. The views of Carvins Cove are amazing, but Hay Rock itself is utterly forgettable. The multiple power line crossings also detract from the experience. We clocked it at 7.9 miles round trip from the park and ride, and would rate it as a pretty solid "Moderate" in difficulty.

In my opinion, the best views in the area. A steady climb with plenty of switchbacks brings you to a breathtaking view of the valley and reservoir below.

I’ve been hiking this for almost 30 years. It is one of my favorite hikes and different every time. The view at the top makes it all worth while.

Hiked this one today. Actually, that was my second attempt to climb the rocks all the way to the top. First time around it was drizzling all day long, boulders were slippery, and I did not finish it. Today was sunny - different story. Good traction, because it was dry, and spectacular views all the way up (if you are climbing the boulders). Very very challenging climb, and I have done some tough trails. Rocks are getting bigger towards the top, and harder to climb. I had enough brains in the end to take side trail down instead of jumping boulders back...lol. Highly recommend if you want entire body workout. Do not recommend if you have knees problem.

Great walk in the woods. The water is beautiful the only downside is there’s no swimming. There are a lot of segways to the water from the trail. The trail was narrow and overgrown near the power lines, which was very noisy. There are a lot of bugs so bring repellant! There also has been bear sightings so be aware and courteous. I would say this trail is closer to moderately strenuous, has some inclines. You can park at either end of the trail. Both $3. The other parking lot is smaller and it is pay by envelope.

Super easy hike and easy for anyone just beginning

It was a great moderate hike! Beautiful waterfalls scenes. A few rest spots (rocks and benches). Our labradoodle enjoyed the hike too - since she’s an experienced hiker she was off-leash, but I wouldn’t recommend letting your dog off-leash if they aren’t well trained. Other than that, there are low running water spots that were for dogs to mingle and cool off. Enjoy!

A great hike! Challenging but well worth it. The view from the Cliffs is amazing! A black bear crossed the trail ahead of mean the way back down. That got the heart racing. It was a great day hike and part 2 of 3 for the Triple Crown.

It was great but I really don’t believe it is good for dogs. Rocky just about the whole way. Definitely hard on the paws

Fun, short hike. Started early on a weekday morning and ended up having the entire top to myself. Clear day, great views, and light breeze.

Great hike other than a fact I got stung/bit by something that caused my knee to swell but still I would highly recommend to someone who wants to go on a relaxing and just overall chill hike

Loved this hike, The view at the top is amazing. But the bugs at the top were INSANE. Never seen such a swarm of them in my life.

Very busy trail that passes under the natural bridge, past some caves, by a Native American interpretive village and alongside a river ending at a waterfall. Begins at the Visitors Center at the State Park. Fee and dog friendly.

Great hike, beautiful views!

views are incredible. trail not well maintained when i went but worth the trip!

Saw a bear about 15-20 feet from the trail. This is an awesome trail, and the best views are before the actual rock overlooking the cove. Beautiful and a great workout!

Tough hike. Trail is rough in spots due to heavy use. Gets a lot of use because it is the direct route to Tinker Cliffs.

Easy hike and great scenery.

did the hike with the family today. I do a lot of hiking.....this trail is WOW. the pictures do not do it justice. As you peak the first set of rocks, you're thinking you're done....and you look up and.....a LOT more scrambling. totally worth the effort and if you like scrambling you will love this!

Beautifully established, the cows and wildflowers made it great.

Do not go right by the fence uphill. Will redo the hike with family when they visit!

Great hike. Pretty good trail up to the actual Marble Yard. The trail that skirts the yard to the right is very steep and narrow but a good challenge. Beautiful views along the way if you step out on to the rocks, WOW.

great hike, great workout. not for dogs though, it is to rocky, my dogs paws were blistered(my fault I know). the view is really great at the cliffs. will do again.
