For reference we got there at 6:30 a.m. on a Saturday and there were only a few parking spots left. Loved the hike despite the large crowd.

This park is so crowded, but well maintained and easy to access if you're in a time crunch. There are rocks and the occasional snake, but I do enjoy completing this hike several times a year.

AMAZING. Honestly no words.

First hike I ever did and now do it routinely. A bit crowded on weekends.

Watched the sunrise over horseshoe bend this week. Absolutely amazing. Very few people there at that time, but by the time he sun came up it was packed already. Recommend going early.

lots of traffic, easy and well marked

Apparently I’m out of shape because it was hard!!! Beautiful hike, wouldn’t do it in summer.

Went in early March. Saw maybe 20 people tops making this an incredible and peaceful hike. The water got waist deep at times. We rented our gear from Zion Adventures - full body, camera bags, and stick. Glad we did. The stick definitely helped balance us out. Overall moderate hike. Unlike any hike I’d ever done before.

Very majestic place. Very crowded but worth the experience.

For lots of breaks and someone out of shape, 3 hours round trip. Definitely something I have to do at least once a year. If parking wasn’t so difficult, I would go every weekend! We went around 11:30 on a Thursday and it was crowded.

Great afternoon hike with breathtaking views. Be prepared to get your feet wet, as you will cross the streams 10+ times by the time you get down to the waterfall and back.

Great hike with several challenges. Parking fills up so get there early.

Great hike with spectacular views at the end. This was one of the easiest hikes we did in the Big 5, there is an uphill section and a few large steps up but very accessible. I would consider this an easy hike or a moderate walk.

So beautiful and very hard on my thighs and coordination! I fell in at one point (I’m not very experienced) but it was all worth it for the once in a lifetime views and experience.

Crowded and people get too close to the edge, but pretty

A nice hike with family from Oregon. Way too many people so didn’t hike all the way down. It was a little warm but manageable.

I'm fat and out of shape... thought I was going to have a heart attack... but, I DIDN'T! I made it to the arch! My husband had both knees replaced 13 months ago and HE made it too!

Nice hike with good views. Long strenuous hike up to the top, however.

I'M EXHAUSTED! An hour trek to the top with water breaks. A complete work out with lots of sweat included, and I still have to go back down to the trailhead. Well worth it.

Hiked this trail with a few friends. Started hike around 8 am to avoid hot sun and to get a parking spot at the base of the mountain. Trail was well travelled with numerous challenging sections. Our first time, it took us about 2 hours. Great views from the top and well worth the climb. Good footwear is a must and three point contact on the way down helped in avoiding jarring of the knees.

on Antelope Canyon

Amazing. we did the lower canyon. cost us 50.00 per person. A must do if your in the area.

Such a beautiful place to go and see nature. The hike in was roughly 12 miles in (not the 10 everyone says). We checked in at the village and were on our way. There isn’t any signs along the way to let us know we were heading in the right direction so we used other hikers as our “guides” to know we were heading in the right direction. When we reached the first “fall” it was a disappointment (only because I thought that was where we were suppose to be and that was it). Keep going, pass the signs that say “Dangerous Unstable Ground” and pass the grave yard. When you are getting nervous you will never make it, just go a little further and you are there. This place is totally worth the sore muscles and exhaustion. We did put up our tent in close to the Natural Spring water (really made life easier to be so close to the fresh water). The hike out is daunting, tiring and makes you question every poor life choice but when you reach the top and are back in the comfort of your own vehicle, it makes you feel accomplished. Wear good supportive shoes, take ONLY what you need and hand sanitizer NEEDS to make it in your pack. Females, be prepared to “hover” in the bathrooms. Most importantly....enjoy the place....it’s absolutely beautiful and magical.

Saw a few lizards and a small snake along the trail, cool views and a good hike that’s not too strenuous but a good climb. We recorded 8.3 miles on the loop.

My favorite place in Arches

Please be sure to read my
“VERY IMPORTANT NOTE” at the end!!!

The parking lot and trails fill up fast and be sure to bring plenty of water for the trek. There was lots of water at the falls (3/12/18) along with people and even some crazy ones that jumped in above the falls. The incline is moderate and you cross over the creek 5-7 times before making the final ascent up to the falls and was easily done without getting my feet wet. I suggest that you take advantage of any nice shaded spots to stop and rest on the way up. Overall I enjoyed myself immensely and would recommend this trail to anyone. .

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: there are huge flat rocks at the falls that are very slippery. I managed to slip while still wearing my hiking boots, but luckily didn’t fall. So, I cannot stress enough to be EXTREMELY CAREFUL and use great caution at all times. Taking even greater caution if you happen to take off your shoes and get your feet wet.

Loved it, not a lot of people around. Will definitely do this again.

You get to use your arms too as in a lot of parts it’s a scramble uphill. Good shoes and a treking pole can help. The way down offers a nice, alternative challenge to hiking and scrambling up. Great views to marvel at.

on Weeping Rock Trail

Super easy. We went later in the evening and sat under the rock. It was like sitting on a porch on a rainy day watching the sun go down. Very peaceful

Great day trip that is a nice drive out of LA and mostly shaded until you meet the cliff portion overlooking the canyon below (and beyond). The early part of the trail is almost flat and follows the creek until you make your way up and around the actual falls. You will eventually come back down along a relatively steep trail that will follow the lower part of the creek and finally to the falls. You can scramble your way up along the edges of the canyon to pools above the falls and in the summertime I would imagine that it would be crowded. Our rainy, Sunday in March kept the masses away and made this more enjoyable. Turn around and head back the way you came in but not before a side trip down bear canyon for more solitude and some more pools. The steep section of the trail that brings you back up will give you a (Very short) workout until you reach the flat and sheer cliffs up above. Perfect Sunday trip.
