We enjoyed this trail. Wonderful view at the end and a distant petroglyph in the middle.

Absolutely spectacular views. This is one of the prettiest hikes I’ve been on in Southern Utah. I would not rate this as excessively difficult, maybe just “hard”. It is very steep and slippery in places and the rise is pretty much constant. Caution should be exercised with children and you definitely need hiking poles to prevent slipping in several places. It was fun to run down, and i didn’t see another human the whole time. This took me 2 full hours, without much stopping.

Nice relaxing hike to the falls. Stayed cool the entire time, falls were beautiful. Not as pretty now that all the leaves have fallen from the trees.

Loved this shorty hike. A must if you’ve never been in a slot canyon. Great for kids or older adults in just a few minutes you can get the slot canyon experience.

Hike was short but the weather couldn’t have been better. The first lava tube was more for the caving type, steep decent. I wouldn’t recommend for younger kids. Or an older person like me (60). The second tube on your right had an easier decent that almost anyone can navigate. It doesn’t go very deep but it will be fun for the younger kids and us old folks. Really hard to get lost in this cave. Sign at the entrance is good to follow. Perfect hike on a hot day. I’ve enjoyed this fun little hike for over 44 years. If your in them at dusk I’m guessing the bat population exiting will start your heart a pumping. Saw bat guano in both lava tubes.

This trail was amazing! The Queen Victoria formation really looks like Queen Victoria. You have a choice of going up the Two Bridges trail or the Wall Street trail to finish the loop. I did Two Bridges. Wall Street is the “slot canyon.” I saw a Steller’s Jay and a chipmunk.

Great easy hike for the family.
Deer In the valley and fish in the creek!
Great color on the walls with the afternoon sun.

Hiked on 11/3/18. This was an amazing trail that was 6.5 miles according to my girlfriend’s Garmin watch. It took us right under 3 hours while taking breaks at the nature guide spots. (Nature guide is found in brown sign in box 10/10 recommended picking one up as it points out many cool things). This hike was beautiful the entire way and had to stop many times just to take in the view. It was a very comfortable hike -warm in the sun, cool and refreshing in the shade (which there was a lot of). This all sand trail was easy to walk and came to a beautiful waterfall. Walk to the far right side of the waterfall to gaze at the hanging gardens, if you look closely you can see where the water is seeping from the rocks/ hanging gardens.

While in this region we combined Devils Garden (down Hole in the Rock Road - just drive down the road and can explore Devils Garden for as long as you want - we took 30 minutes there), and Grosvenor Arch (in Cannonville which is on the way to Calf Creek if coming from Kanab. Took 30 minutes to drive to off of the main road and 25 to explore - you can drive up to it)

The view of the switchbacks looking down on Navajo is amazing!

Beautiful hike the whole way through. It's a bit strenuous, but is most definitely worth it.

A rather easy hike to a very nice waterfall. There is also some Anasazi artwork along the way if you look out for it. There is a $5 fee to hike the trail, but it is worth the price. Good food can be found in nearby Boulder!

perfect day for a perfect hike!!!!

If you only have one hike to do, do this one.

This was a great hike , in the canyon along the brook reasonably flat , and ending with a spectacular waterfall. My wife and I waked this in and out with breaks for a total of 4 hours . We are both in good shape and I am 71 years old.
On the hike we saw deer , brook trout and what looked like mountain cat foot prints. This was a nice change from some of the more serious up hikes we had been doing

Lovely, beautiful And adventurous trail! Captivating landscapes and rock walls!

Very nice very steep! Landscape is captivating! Amazing formations around every bend! A must see

Awesome trail, obvious why it’s so popular.

Lovely 1/4-1/2 day hike! We got caught in the rain on and off but had ponchos so no biggie. The falls are beautiful and the hanging gardens within them are really neat. Hiking shoes made it a pretty easy hike. No poles necessary IMO. Just take plenty of water and a snack!

Very nice hike with beautiful waterfall at the end!

The hike was beautiful! The water was very cold!

Such amazing views

I’m glad we came down through Wall Street on the Navajo Loop as it met up with the Queen’s Garden Loop. Others were coming from the other direction and I thought the switchbacks and entrance to Wall Street was more majestic coming down onto it instead of coming up it.

Great hike. Beautiful scenery. Nice payoff at the end. Great for all ages. Some elevation changes but nothing too crazy.

The loose softball sized lava rocks were a pain in the butt on a bike. The scenery makes it worth doing, but if I do this trail again, I’ll leave the bike at home.

Popular trail with amazing views. Get an early start to beat the crowds!

Great trail and an easy hike. It’s well marked and had little traffic while we were out. The overall hike is closer to 7 miles from the Staves Spring trailhead parking. The view at the end is totally worth it! Definitely recommend!

Moderate difficulty with a great view to see at the end!

I didn’t start hiking until 11:00 AM on a day that hit 100 degrees. My saving grace was that I soaked my cotton shirt with water from a sink in the restroom at the beginning and did that twice more along the hike. I did have to pay attention to where the trail went close to the river along the way. There are points of interest that are marked by numbers but the best one was the petroglyphs on the opposite side of the canyon.

Needless to say the hike was definitely worth it when my son and I arrived at the waterfall. We stayed there for 4 hours and built a sand castle. I regretted not bringing my light weight hammock since there is a great spot in the sand and trees next to the pool.

This is one of my favorite spots on this planet to hike to. We stayed at the Falls long enough that we were mostly in shade on the decent (hard to call it a decent since there is so much up and down in the sand). Also, there were trout in the pool at the bottom of the falls. It made me wish I took my fishing gear.

Beautiful hike and beautiful views!
