Jolie balade dans difficulté. Comptez une heure A/R. Quelques passages un peu glissants sur quelques slickrocks (il pleuvait un peu) mais rien de méchant. Peu de monde sur le parcours. Très beaux paysages.

Lovely hike that's not too strenuous and not too easy. As usual the heat is a major factor.

We intended to do the loop clockwise but took a turn right and did it anticlockwise. Probably best to follow the trail on phone.

We didn't see or meet anyone until the very end. Great views.

Did this one in August 2015. Brutally hot weather, but otherwise great hiking conditions.

The hike up to "base camp" was spectacular - beautifully maintained trails, pleasant elevation gain, and uninterrupted views of the canyon. I would recommend that first leg of the hike to most anybody.

The actual Angel's Landing climb is a completely different beast. Between the heat, the treacherous drop-offs, and the altitude, it was an intense hour or so. The view from the point, though, is fantastic - panoramic views of the canyon and its technicolored rock walls complimented by a dozen or so California Condors circling overhead.

A very memorable experience, and a worthy member of the hiker's hall of fame.

Is this open yet? I am surprised to see comments from people even this week

Nice hike with a great view. Yellow trail is easier for those looking for an easier ascent, but those looking for a bit more of a challenge should ascent using blue trail as it has some steeper rocks. I wouldn't suggest going down blue trail but its doable.

Beautiful hike! We took the yellow trail up but starting from the Uncas Rd trailhead. That is not mapped here but is shown on the trail brochure that you can get from the Inlet information center. The summit has amazing views especially north to the high peaks region. We followed the loop and took the blue trail down until we merged back to the yellow trail and finished the loop back to Uncas Rd. We didn’t record it but I believe this adds some distance to the hike. The lower loop back to Uncas is peaceful with hardly any other hiking traffic. Bring lots of water and wear good shoes. This was our favorite hike of our trip!

Short but sweet hike and wow! Evolving views all the way to the end. The bridge is impressive as are the rest of the geological features. We arrived early enough to avoid the heat and were happy for it. Not many on the trail by 8am.

Mentally tough but rewarding hike.

Hard hike but worth every minute!

Love this hike. Dislike the crowds.

i love this hike. not for non hikers.

People are insanely unprepared for this hike. Energy levels are showing way to low and the main hike to the top hasn't even started. The chains are a huge help, but this isn't for the average "walker" or tourist in a pair of snickers. You must be prepared for this, hydrated and the proper footwear. Seriously people! no more near misses- this trail will close permanently

This s one of my favorite hikes of all time!! I've done it several times. Incredible!!!!!I would recommend going early in the morning ( at least in the summer) the sun can be pretty brutal.

The bridge is amazing. The rocks along the trail are also featured.

It's funny to hike with chains in the hand, but don't too worry about the danger. Just be careful. Actually the most difficult part is before reaching the cliff, as it's very steep. When you hike with chains, you always need to stop to wait for others in the opposite direction, so will not be very tired.

I didn’t think this trail was hard, but by husband did as he has bad knees. Summited in 3 hrs and about 2.5 hrs to descend. The views were nice although it was a cloudy day, I’m sure on a clear day it would be incredible. I would recommend poles if prone to knee strain.

This hike is not long or difficult but is a little challenging. Some definite climbing on rock and do not ever try hike without proper footwear especially if it’s wet. The trail can be a little confusing at times and you will really need to look for the markers. Some stepper rock climbs in the middle of the trail. The really nice thing about the hike is the sneak peak views you get of the lakes while climbing to the top. Of course the best view is saved for last and the tower is open.

Great hike. I didn’t do the chains but my girlfriend did and loved it. Even the hike up to the plateau at the top is worth it though. Go early to avoid crowds.

One of the best, most iconic hikes in the country. Hope it opens up again soon.

Relatively easy and beautiful!

Great hike for all ages and pups as well! Very easy and short hike. Great for beginners.

I strongly recommend this hike. Like, strongly. Gorgeous views the entire hike without the crowds! We went early (around 9am) and we were glad we did because it definitely got hot towards the end. Total hike took us 2 hours with some stopping to take pics, gaze at the scenery, and have a snack. Well worth it trail in beautiful capitol reef.

Excellent trail with fantastic sights. Small parking lot but not too busy. Bathroom at trailhead. Barely any cover so go when it’s cooler and bring lots of water. Should take around under two hours.

Stunning and not that hard. A great place to sit and rest and enjoy the views midway through - good picnic spot.

Challenging but fun hike. Go early to beat the heat. View at the top is amazing.

Hey it’s Old Faithful!! You can’t go to Yellowstone and not see Old Faithful. Super crowded of course since visitor center and other educational bdlgs are here plus gift shop etc but now I can say I saw it

Second time up Blue in July. Did this on a Monday morning. Trail was quite busy with families and summer camp groups. Trail etiquette was not very good with lots of candy/gum wrappers, groups with music playing on speakers, failure to yield trail to descending hikers. But I guess that comes with the territory, with a short hike to a fire tower so close to vacationland.

I dashed up the trail and made the summit in 57 minutes, and descended in just about 30 minutes.

Great choice for a good workout and excellent view at the summit. The hike is almost entirely in the woods until the summit. It is uphill the entire way but no technical challenges. Close to the summit you will need to do some relatively easy scrambling and a wooden staircase. We had no difficulty finding trail signs. The trail was well marked.

This was our sons first mountain hike and he loved it. We did the blue trail up which worked out well for him as he LOVED the rocks and the climbing. From the summit we took the yellow trail down which lead to a much more secluded and peaceful hike down. We only passed a few couples hiking up. My husband and I enjoyed the ease of the climb and our son did well with the trails. Make sure you bring water and wear the appropriate footwear!
