on Lava Tube Trail

the trail is easy but the climb down into the lava was more than my 6 year wanted/could handle.

Great views of lava rock, flowers, caves and mountains. Not much shade and very hot in the summer.

Just another way to celebrate a beautiful wat to celebrate a beautiful day in Utah, with outdoors activities with friends and family.

have hiked this trail twice this summer. better each time. will be doing it again very soon.

Has always been my most favorite hike! It’s definitely a challenge but well worth it! It’s very steep about half way up, which makes it almost harder to come down! Make sure you have good griped shoes and PLENY of water! Definitely depending on the time of year you do it of course! I did it for the last time last year 8months pregnant and then again this year for the first time 8months out! LOVE IT!

Great trail!
Lake is a great stop for photos.
Saw one rattlesnake.

This was a really fun hike. The beginning was very very easy and a little boring. After the reservoir it gets more challenging. the trails aren't marked too well. the last .3 miles are very steep, but really fun and challenging to climb. The falls are amazing and well worth it. There is a large Boulder shelf that you can stand on and take a picture of the valley as well. I would recommend going in the morning, about 7, traffic is very light and usually faster more athletic people are there. It was really busy around 930 is with novice hikers

The view is definitely worth the last mile uphill. Just make sure to wear decent shoes and go when it's not 97 degrees out like I did. Pretty tough hike but that waterfall at the end is magnificent

Great hike. Took the love of my life❤️

Great hike. Took 9 year old

This hike is always a challenge for me but I love it. Third time now bc I feel safe hiking it solo. It’s definitely warming up as Summer goes on but luckily the crowds are thinning (so it’s not super packed). My goal is to make it without stopping but that last half mile is brutal.

Hot on a sunny summer afternoon, and open. Go all the way to the falls and it's a tough hike but worth. Met two tame deer in the trail.

beautiful hike! great workout! mostly up hill, but is not very difficult. and amazing views.

There's a mile long section that's steeper than you'd expect. Fairly shaded, easy to hike, fun waterfalls at the end. You can keep going up and find a large boulder slab with really cool views back into the valley. Adds another 30 minutes onto the hike.

Easy going trail that weaves between bush and rocks at the start and gradually gets very steep towards the end- though it's in the trees and away from direct sun. Beautiful falls at the end.

This hike was a little difficult, but so worth it. We just took breaks going up the steep part and and eventually made it to the falls. We watched the sunset and the view of the valley is gorgeous. Then we hiked back in the dark which was a lot of fun!

Did this hike this evening with our 13 month old in a back pack. It was absolutely amazing! Not for the weak minded!

This hike was a fun one. We encountered all manner of hikers out here. There were the just out for a stroll variety and then the hard core this is my work out variety. For the easy stroll just walk up to the resevoir. For the more serious ones go on up to the waterfall. Note: there were plenty of signs warning about the dangers associated with the waterfall; also a law enforcement officer we chatted with on our way up said they usually "lose about one a year". Having said that, the waterfall fell into the category "probably safe if you don't do stupid things". Good hike and viewing the map it looks like there's another lake a little further up from the water fall. Will probably do that one next.

Once you get past the lake, the trail is much more fun and the waterfall and surrounding canyon walls are stunning. I wouldn't rate this as difficult especially compared to Mt Olympus..

Worthy of a visit. It's a very simple, well-worn trail to follow and there are some nice views at the falls. You won't be disappointed

I went about a month ago and my mom's friend tore a ligament plus the hike is not moderate at all it is really hard.

This trail is a strenuous one. It’s nearly a mile from the parking lot to the trailhead, so plan accordingly. The temps were right around 100 in early July, so bring plenty of water. Steep steps and large rocks are prevalent for much of the hike, but the waterfall is a beautiful destination. The upper portion is even steeper than the lower, but it’s worth the wobbly legs you’ll have at the end of the hike!

We took the Rover and side by sides to the opening of the trail. Really pretty walk, mostly flat so any fitness level could enjoy it. Just take a look at the photos from this trail, such an incredible natural beauty.

Wundeful hike, but someone seems to have destroyed the cairns on the first part of the trail!!!
We started at 8 am and had the trail nearly for ourselves.

Beautiful trail! The lake is gorgeous. Highly recommend.

beautiful, shaded, and not too long. I was able to get up to the falls after work in the evening and race the sunset back down the mountain in just a couple of hours. gorgeous views and it was too crowded on a Friday night.

Amazing trail! Pretty easy until the last part to the falls. I did see a mountain lion on the trail a while back. Probably not there anymore and very unlikely to see one, but be cautious!

Very nice hike with great views over the city for the first part. Definitely worth going all the way to the falls! The trail isn’t perfectly marked, but it not difficult to follow.

This trail is rated at a hard but we did this on July 4th and it was relatively easy until you got to the last half mile. The last half mile is kind of steep but the water fall at the end is totally worth it.
