Some snow on the trail (October 13), doable without crampons or microspikes but definitely faster and more fun with them! :) Gorgeous weather, aspens are still yellow and falling, lots of snow on the peaks and the lake is starting to freeze over! Wore a tank top on the way up but was pretty cold at the top and bundled up for the way down. Less than two hours up and about an hour to run down (with photos :). Love this hike!!

First time up and I was nervous. Turned out not to be so bad. First mile and a half is a fairly easy incline last mile I had to stop and go slow. That is also where the icy parts are that were doable with poles. We also had a Welcome committee 3 moose (1 Bulls and 2 cows). There are 2 really rocky sections as well. Totally worth it. Its just beautiful.

This was a fairly easy 2-mile trail that ends at an amazing natural bridge. I would rate it 5 stars if there weren’t so many children running around and shouting.

fabulous day for this hike! Hiked corona and bow tie arch before this, and still made it to the ‘trail end’ sign. awesome views the whole way!

Beautiful trail!! It took me just under 2 hours to get to the top (took a few breaks). The trail isn’t extremely hard or anything it’s just long/has a consistent moderate incline. There are some icy patches right now but they were doable without poles. It was gorgeous at the top and there were a few baby moose!

This trail was so much fun! Yes, challenging around the rocks, but not impossible. I was wearing a dress and running shoes. It worked just fine.

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! Last 1/4 mile is covered in ice as of 10-19; it’s easy getting around it while ascending but you’ll easily fall descending if you don’t bring spikes or poles.

11 miles for the loop NOT 8!!

Would do again, but only Little Wild Horse in and out. Glad I did the loop once though.

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

Decently interesting hike and then the arch at the end is incredible.

beautiful scenery. but be careful, it is very icy right now and very difficult to hike without poles or spikes. I almost fell twice on the way down.

Snow, ice, and mud, but a great hike! Somehow I didn't make it to the falls, the trail just ended at the river. I'll go back in the summer and see where I went wrong. The road is closed so you have to hike in from the main road.

Nice quick trail with a great waterfall at the end. However, navigating over the rocks was trickier than we thought, so not all of us were able to make it to the waterfall.

Such a fantastic hike!! Definitely chilly up at the top with wind so pack layers. Hike has ups, downs, climbing, ladders, etc so prepare if elderly or have children. There were a couple times I had trouble following the trail, but it is well marked by others with the rock towers (look for them!) This hike is so beautiful though and unlike anything I’ve seen inside the national parks. Highly recommend!! According to signs at trailhead, it’s 2.2 miles up & back (total of 4.4) versus what’s on this app. Not sure what is correct!

Tough trail if you’re not in shape — uphill the entire first half, and pretty steep. Also, the trail was already coated in ice, which made the going slow toward the top (especially on the way down). Poles or chains recommended. But the view at the top was gorgeous, the lake was so serene — and we had two wild moose sightings (from a safe distance)! Highly recommend, just be prepared.

Great easy hike for anyone, especially for the kids.There was snow and ice on most of the trail this morning. Make sure to take gloves that’s something I was regretting not having with me.

wonderful hike

Beautiful hike and beautiful views!

Did the loop counter clockwise starting at inspiration point and walking the rim to Sunset. Took Navaho's switchback decent past marvelous natural sites like three trees climbing from floor to above the HooDoos. Joined the Queens loop at the bottom and took that to sunrise point where we caught the last shuttle back to the car. Weather was perfect and the trails only crowded at the start of Navaho. After reaching the bottom the crowds were gone. This trail combination is listed as the most popular and moderate. This is mid October and while the hotels were full it looked like our trails weren't overflowing.

One of the best in Moab area...a local favorite. Bring lots of water and make sure you go to the very end .... where you will see a little wooden sign saying “The End” Being able to watch the rock climbers is an added benefit. Enjoy!!

Fairly straightforward trail leading to the arch - which is AMAZING. Definitely worth doing. Fairly steady path throughout, with a few good overlooks into the valley too.

Hardest hike of the summer! But I had the place to myself and the views were worth it! Lots of different terrain and scenery!

Very much a tough trail if you are not in shape. The trail is very rocky and hilly but well traveled. Take plenty of water and take plenty of breaks to keep from getting winded.

It was steep but the view was pretty cool once you get there. We backpacked so we hiked at night and woke up to a beautiful fall view. Did it about 1.5 weeks ago

What a great trail!! Lots of fun. We made it about 3/4 of the way and the kids were tuckered out, so we turned around. Such great views up and down. It was really neat watching the rock climbers at the top of The Cheeto!

Super easy, super crowded. Snow shoe this one. It’s not bad though. Falls are pretty cool.
