I love the 5 pools or whatever its called LOL absolutely beautiful when theres actually water in them. The big cavern? is stunning and we saw a snake so that was cool. We normally go off trail and wander into the forest a bit.

This will always be a memorable trail for me. It was my first hike in Sedona and paired with Brin Mesa for the entire loop. Just outstanding.

Hiked Angel’s Landing this afternoon and it was beautiful. There were a few wet spots from the morning rain, but otherwise dry. There were A LOT of people so take your time! It took us about 3.5 hours round trip and that was with a couple snack stops and waiting for people to go up and down.

We started at Bryce Point in a snow storm. The first mile down from here is not part of the Peek-a-Boo loop trail. The loop is approximately 3 miles with multiple inclines and declines. We had been to Bryce before, but this was our first time on this trail. It is my favorite. There is so much beauty to see and this trail keeps it interesting. There are some steep areas so I recommend Yaktraks or spikes during snow or rain. Ps bathrooms on the trail are closed during the winter

Though not the most well known, definitely well worth it. I almost preferred this hike over Angles Landing. You get different beautiful views around every corner instead of just at the top. Start out early to beat the crowds and to have a great seat at the top.

Great trail with clearly marked paths and various sites entities such as Devil’s Sinkhole, Seven Sacred Pools, and if willing to go off trail a bit, three arches.

Beautiful views! This is a demanding hike but worth it.

Beautiful hike down through some incredible formations that include a couple of natural bridges. Some muddy sections this time of year.

3 friends and I hiked this one after a harder hike. Beautiful views leading up to it, but the pools themselves were alright. It was cooler at the top so we cooled off then headed back. Moderately challenging because of all the rocks on the trail, but worth it!

Definitely a challenge. I have a major fear of heights and I decided to just do it. (Nike would be proud y’all). Had second thoughts halfway into it but it’s like a roller coaster: you really can’t go back. Crowds tend to keep you moving forward and it’s challenging on the chains. The views, however, were so so worth it.

Moral of the story: WORTH IT. Brave your fear of heights but also be careful.

hard but worth while!

Beautiful, as expected it was pretty crowded. If you wait out a few mins between groups it is a pretty good climb without dealing with back and forth traffic on the narrow path given. Definitely, invest in hiking shoes for this hike. A lot of crazy college kids who would jump and run the hike. Patience is key to enjoy the beautiful view at the top!!!

This is a fantastic hike. You get to see so many sites with a limited number of miles. I enjoy being down among the hoodoos and seeing them stand over you provides a different perspective than when you are on the rim. This is a must do hike for any hikers visiting Bryce Canyon.

We had a very late start at 4p. But we’re up and back down in time to catch one of the last shuttles (4:10 total trip time including 40ish minutes at the point). Since we were essentially there for sunset, we had the place to ourselves. This is an incredible hike providing visual rewards after taking step number 1. On the ‘hard’ rating spectrum, OP falls much closer to moderate.

Wonderful trail to get up close and personal with the Hoo Doos. We added Peek-a-Boo loop. There was a bit of residual ice, snow, and red muddy slush on the trail, but traction was ok in hiking boots. Views were astonishing. We saw a herd of 15 deer at the bottom.A steep climb out, but worth it.

The views throughout the entire trail are impressive..as is everything in Zion. Go early to avoid the crowds.

Amazing and Death Defying.

There are only like 10 parking spots in a very crowded parking lot. I suggest stopping at the entrance and waiting for for someone to leave. I would consider this a moderate hike because of the rough terrain but not really any actual hand and foot climbing. It is fun because there are several things to see along the way. We did not end up doing the whole trail. This trail has great views of the red rocks and has lots of shade.

In the description it mentions a red rock pass. I did not see anything about this at the trailhead.

This trail is no secret, but it is everything it is hyped up to be and more. My friend and I did it as a spur on a longer overnight journey into Zion’s indescribably ethereal backcountry via the West Rim Trail, which I would highly recommend. There are beautiful views from the trail camps, and it really takes you through all of the classic Zion environments. The landing definitely slowed us down a bit thanks to the crowds. Walter’s Wiggles, the switchbacks on the initial climb up the canyon, are difficult, exposed and steep, but the spur up to Angel’s Landing itself is not as physically taxing as it is nerve-wracking—the trail gets to be an extremely narrow ridge at points, and you feel like a bighorn sheep! As everyone has mentioned, start at the very first light, if not earlier—that’s the best way in the desert, to beat the heat and the peeps. Nothing like jumping into the Virgin when you descend back into the valley!

We went after an overnight snow storm. The snow was melting and the water volume was up because of it. The falls between the middle and lower pools had three different falls, with quite a bit of water volume. The upper falls was simply amazing. When you tried to stand by the upper pool, you were getting drenched, it felt like it was creating its own wind, and you felt very chilled.

This trail had way to many people on it for me to give it more than 4 stars. It was a true traffic jam at times between the middle falls and the upper fallls.

Did this the day after Angel's Landing, and we thought it was very cool to look down from Observation Point and see where we hiked the day before. The way up is tiring but lunch at the top was beautiful, and let us rest for an easy hike down. While not the most well-known hike in the park, I would definitely argue it's a must-do if you visit!

Oh boy, I've done longer hikes with more elevation change, but the switchbacks here are one of the toughest stretches of trail I've found. Trail gets easier after that part though, as it's just being careful navigating the narrow parts with a bunch of people passing you. Definitely among the best day hikes I've completed; the view at the end is utterly worth it!

Easy hike , beautiful when we went, three waterfalls overhead so amazing

Just stunning. Not too bad snow wise but there was a storm coming in after we left so it might’ve all changed. A must do if you’re in Bryce.

I’d imagine this hike is a lot prettier in the summer with more vegetation. The trail up is pretty and you get to see the falls that come from the pools above (falls isn’t the right word its more line streams that run off the side of the rocks). I’m definitely glad I did it but on my next visit I plan on choosing new hikes to explore instead of this one.

Great hike—challenging with a great sense of accomplishment at the end. Please be patient when going on narrow areas; if it’s narrow and some people are descending, don’t just start your ascent and then make it difficult for people to pass. Just be patient, because this trail can be dangerous.

Recommend going early, just as sun rises. Fewer people on the trail and the worst part about this is the number of people there that make it difficult to do the hike.

It was a fantastic trail!! Paved which is nice and steep which is really what makes it be considered hard! It was a great workout and I wore my backpacking backpack just for extra weight but definitely only need some water and a camera for this one. No real “gear” needed.

Soldier Pass to Brins Mesa is a 'must-see' hike. The trail is well maintained and makes for a fairly easy walk. There is a long, gradual ascent to the mesa, although a few uphill spots rate as moderate. The views throughout the hike and from the crowning mesa are awe inspiring, transcendant, unforgettable. The trailhead parking is practically non-existent, so be prepared to park far away and walk some distance to reach the trail. This is a minor aggravation, but well worth the glorious views. Even on a weekend, the trail did not seem crowded. I will be back again and again for this fantastic hike.
