Need to be there with a nice weather.

Super fun trail. Took the route of starting at the Primitive trail and ending with Devils Garden Main trail. Personally I found this to be nice because I went up the steep rock on primitive and not down it, which I was told many people turn around at that point. I will say though if going in the winter and planning on taking the same route, have ice spikes or chains. The Main Trail was icy around 2pm. The whole loop took me 4 hours and that includes stopping for lunch at Dark Angel and getting lost for about a half mile while looking for the Main Trail. Good hike all in all.

Awesome trail!!

This is absolutely one my All Time favorite summits in Utah. I love it because it’s steep and relatively a short 3.3 mile to the top. My personal record to the summit stands at 1 hour 37 min and little under 41 mins to run back down to the trailhead. As of December 8th, I have summited Mt. Olympus 16 times in 2018.

Went here for the first time today beautiful place. I was the only one out there and it was awesome. It’s not a easy hike I did the whole loop in about 3 hours. I had to use this app a few times because trailers are not well marked. Definitely recommend! Where proper gear it may look like a short hike it’s definitely a challenge. excited to return there in the warmer weather.

Fantastic view at the top! There was so much to see that it was difficult to resist the urge to keep exploring.

My family of 6 LOVED this hike so much! It was challenging and fun for all ages, but we took extra caution and went slow with our 6 year old. The kids loved playing on the rocks and we were so impressed with the waterfalls. I highly recommend this hike! Wear hiking boots for sure!

Hiked 10/27. missed the beautiful larch colors, but was still an amazing hike. Breathtaking views. Note....drove past trailhead was looking for NF-600. thinking it would be marked as such. It is actually at the Rainy Pass rest stop area.

Beautiful in the fall when the mountains are covered in snow. Not too much elevation change and you get big views for a moderate amount of effort. Definitely heavily trafficked on the weekend though!

Amazing. I am a teensy bit scared of heights, but easily made it over the double o fin with a bit of hand holding and a whole lottta confidence.

This is by far an impressive hike! The primitive loop is well worth it. Truly gorgeous.

Good trail, hiked this in the early fall to get ready for a trip to Yosemite. Waterfalls were great and was steep enough to get the heart rate up! Definitely recommended

On the Devils tour this week. Came in for the day and even tho we started the hike at 2:00 (a bit later than I planned) we finished up right before sunset and the light was magical.

Fun trail! Get there early to beat the crowds and use AllTrails if you go on the primitive trail because you will definitely get lost!

Incredible hike took our family about 4.5 hours today – the full loop including a few of the offshoots. It was moderate to a little scary at times but well worth the effort. It is the quintessential Arches national Park hike!

Awesome trail hiked it today in the snow absolutely beautiful gotta hit it when there ain’t many ppl their cause it gets full

I did this hike as a prep hike the weekend before I did Mt. Whitney. It was my first time doing it even though I have hiked all over the Wasatch Front. I was amazed at how majestic this hike is from beginning to end. It's a great hike to do in the late fall and early winter because it starts at a relatively low elevation compared to most other hikes near Salt Lake City/Sandy, Utah. As such there was little to no snow on the trail. I did it in about 5.5 hours (around 3 hours up, 2.5 hours down).

On the last quarterish mile scramble to the summit, I got misdirected and started ascending the wrong way. Luckily, a dude set me in the right direction (thanks Stu!) and I got to the summit to take in the preposterous views of Salt Lake Valley. Early on in the hike, it also forks and one prong of that fork goes down the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. I walked down that trail for a few hundred meters before I realized my error (thanks to the AllTrails app).

I highly recommend this hike.

Loved every second, on the way up at least

So beautiful especially when the larch trees are in all their autumn glory. I hiked this 10/24 and the larches were in full effect. I hiked counterclockwise and I was very happy with the decision. It was a busy trail even on a Wednesday so I would suggest off peak times if possible.

A nice little hike that includes all major arches. I suppose this is THE thing to do in arches NP. It wasn't always clear to me where the trail was, but nothing dramatic. There are a lot of people if you don't go too early, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Definitely one of the best hikes I've ever done. Falls were amazing and scrambling up the rocks was a lot of fun.

Amazing hike! As others have said, snow on the trail very early on and got to knee deep at the top of the pass. We went on a clear sunny day and lucked out with gorgeous views.

I wouldn’t go too much later in the season as I suspect the trail with be harder to follow with the snow cover-come prepared.

Also a word of warning, the snow was falling off the trees in the undergrowth-so much so that we had our rain gear on for the first hour. So just be wary and bring rain gear.

Ricketts Glen is by far the best trail I’ve ever been to. All of the waterfalls are amazing , a must see for everyone.. Get your camera ready this place is breathtaking. I recommend good shoes and a walking stick!

AMAZING wish I lived closer. The falls are beautiful. Scrambling is a little tough but I was able to do it with my dog on a lead. Highly recommend.

Fantastic hike with a very special woman and some awesome friends. This was a hard one... more difficult mentally than physically. Just when you think your there, your not... We loved it!!!

Nice hike with variety of scenery (rocks, stream crossings, etc). Be warned, if has rained heavily in past few days, many of the springs flow right down most sections of the trails. Although hiked this on cool November day, have done this in the past during Spring/Summer and would agree with other reviewers that the gnats/bugs can be pretty bad on the eastern trails of French Creek.

Made this into a larger loop by taking the first unnamed trail off to the left which returns back to main trail a little before trail to Miller's Point. This 1.9 mile section of trail is not marked at all on the French Creek State Park map, but would be worthy addition...if it only had actual blazes on it. There are very faded maroon blazes with white in center down hill of 1st mile, but once you get to the power line clearing, the blazes stop and you have to locate the trail on your own the rest of the way back up. Do not recommend unless you have AllTrails/GPS app with signal. Without those issues, it would be a nice extension to the French Trail hike (about 8.7 miles) as the trail is much thinner and more remote feeling on it. The spider webs during warmer weather would probably be terrible given the minimal traffic.

Solid hike! I did this loop in about 3 hours, we took our time looking at the falls/outlooks. The waterfalls are quite steep and can be slippery, hiking shoes are best. I would not suggest going down on the falls side! Some parts of the trail are not well marked, so pay close attention once you get to the top of the falls.

Never Gets Old. Did the short loop this time out to the over looks and back down to trail down.
Trail over to Overlook isn’t marked very well..if it’s snow covered you’re lost if u don’t have this app..

Found a sport dog field trainer thing on the trail. find me on Instagram @savethenegs to retrieve it.

I have hiked this trail twice before but hiked it again today on November 3rd. I went 3.5 miles and then turned back, but could have gone further given the snow. It was snowing but very lightly. People I passed said you could go further than I went—one said just one grade away from the pass. Don’t let the snow stop you on this one even if you can’t do the full loop. You can still do quite a bit and it’s still beautiful!

Note: I always go counter-clockwise.

Also, there were less than 10 groups hiking today.

I am a beginner and it was my second hike. I went there on Saturday around 12pm and returned at 7:15pm. It was hard for me but I enjoyed a lot. I would suggest not to add 0.7 mile for Ann lake because there is nothing to see, rather you will get nice view form the top.

If you are beginner then it’s really hard for you, as per my experience.
