went to go hike based off descriptions on here however you do need to get a permit in advance, ranger said sometimes several weeks in advance especially for weekends. better luck next time I guess.

Going down is the warm up. Get prepared to hike back. Do the extra mile at the end for the waterfall.

Favorite hike in AZ! Ends at a swimming hole with some great spots to cliff jump at. Pretty long hike but all worth it once you make it to the water. Probs too cold in late fall/winter to get in water but great for Spring/summer.

Beautiful sights, challenging hike and uplifting experience!

Great views! Unfortunatly for us, we have to avoid last sector by icy.
For me one of the best perspectives.

Started around noon and finished at 5:20. Great hike, I did hike clockwise first up the Fremont ridge. This seems to be a popular hike to the ridge ran into a dozen people or so. But after the ridge I didn’t see a sole. Pure wilderness solitude!

We completed this hike in a little over 8 hours. We started at 8:30am hiked down to the Colorado River. We made it down by 12:00pm. The views on the way down are amazing! We stopped a few times for pictures and to take in the scenery. We did not go the whole way up to Phantom Ranch, we just went straight onto the Bright Angel Trail. The weather was great towards the bottom, I started out with a thermal, sweatshirt, vest and jacket with leggings and sweatpants. Through the first part I ended up taking off my jacket and then my sweatshirt. Before we hiked back up I took off my sweatpants. The hike up was pretty steep. We finished the second part of the hike by 4:15pm. We hiked just about 16.75 miles in one day. This is not recommended, however we were determined! We weren’t too prepared either because we did not expect to do that. But it was very rewarding when we finished! Once we starting getting closer to the top it became colder and I had to put some of my layers back on. Definitely a breathtaking experience!

This was amazing! It is $50 per person but totally worth the views. The tour guide is extremely helpful with taking pictures as well! A must see!!

Beautiful view from the top! Well worth the effort. My then 7 year old was a little nervous about the narrow top portion of the hike, but she toughed it out and wasn’t scared once we were at the wide and mostly flat top of the peak.

We hiked AL on Dec. 1st. 2018. We could not have asked for better weather. The condition of the tral was excellent. I would recommend checking the forecast, have good hiking shoes or boots and bring plenty of water and protein. Bars/bananas etc. The view from the top and also along the way is phenomenal. Cheers.

In the winter this is a moderate trail because crossing icy rocks many times isn’t easy. Still fun, but bring a walking stick, carry an extra pair of socks, and have dry shoes waiting in the car.

For those of you who do not know, Tours must be booked to do this! Would recommend going in the summer and when the sun is in the middle of the sky, I went in the fall and the light rays were not as great (as told by our guide). Very busy, but worth seeing.

An easy hike with a gradual elevation gain and several stream crossings. Views are amazing.

Very pretty trail, great views. It was cloudy and a bit rainy today but gave it a go anyhow. I was hoping the clouds would have cleared up, but they didn’t by the time I got to ~4000’ elevation. I was right at the cloud line and thought it would be pointless (and perhaps dangerous) to proceed into the clouds to get to the summit. Quite disappointed, I turned back, short of reaching the top. Took me 4.5 hours for the abbreviated hike. Looking forward to trying this again in better weather.

Thank you too everyone who put out the cairns, they were a lifesaver! That and this great app!

This is a fantastic and beautiful hike.

Getting There: For a more knee friendly route, I recommend taking the right fork following the wash down thru the slot canyons. Take plenty of pictures. You will know that you are at the end of the canyon when you see a rock formation on left that looks like a knight from a chessboard. Take a left here and follow the yellow arrows painted onto the rock. When you come to a place where the arrows point in opposite directions, look up! You have to go thru that ridge above you. The rest is easy-peezy. Follow the trail back into the second slot, climb the ladder and you will be at the bottom pool. This is the coolest pool and the most social one too. There are 3 pools and they get progressively hotter as you go up. Enjoy yourself.

Return Trip: To continue your hike, exit through the upper pool. Follow the slot canyon until it begins to open up. Start looking for the trail that follows the right wall with established signage. There is a Y soon. Be careful to follow the trail up into the hills on the left. If you miss the turn you will still end up at the parking area, just more mileage. Watch carefully for wildlife. I saw 4 bighorned sheep just after the saddle. Beautiful and docile, but don't get too close. They're well known for their ramming speed.

All in all this was a beautiful hike and would definitely repeat it, no problem. Temps were high of 60, which made for the perfect weather for this hike. Leave only footprints, take only memories... and plenty of pictures!

Super fun. easy. beautiful. you do walk across the river a few times so be prepared.

Awesome hike, ended up doing it twice in one week. Enjoyable walk through the canyons before hitting the river, and some of the hottest hot springs I’ve been in.

I did lower antelope canyon, as the light rays don't come through the upper antelope canyon in the winter so I didn't think the upper would be worth the money. The lower antelope canyon is cheaper and it was great to visit. Go on first tour with Dixie Ellis or last tour with Ken's.

Loved this hike! The beginning seems mundane but quickly turns into a winding canyon with awesome views. The way down seem like a long time but the hot springs are so worth it.
The first spring is so hot you can’t even sit in it. Would definitely come back and spend a day here.

I have to agree that this Trail seemed overrated. Some of the canyon views were very pretty but this was not a must do for me. Much of your time is spent in forested, obstructed views of the canyon. The stream crossings were somewhat fun. About 4 hours.

Good hike for the experienced. I tend to always get dehydrated on this hike. Be smarter than me and bring electrolyte rich food and liquid. It's a great workout

I've hiked this trail a few times. I went about a month ago when there were still leaves on the trees (but many were already on the ground) and it was breath-taking with the fall colors all around. Also hiked it in the spring and beautiful greens everywhere. One of my favorite trails Be prepared for the parking lot to be full and need to park along the road which adds to your hike.

Did this today...it’s a butt kicker! The park service does not recommend doing this in one day, but we like to torture ourselves. Took the hiker shuttle to the trail head at 7 am, started hiking about 7:30. We stopped at all the rest areas briefly and had lunch on the river. It was amazing. Freezing on the rim with some ice on the trails for a bit, but basically a warm fall day at the bottom. Indian Garden had water still. There are also rock springs all over. We finished at 4:30, stopping frequently along the last 3 miles, they were killer. :)

Narrows-esque with less variation in terrain. Mainly in shade around Thanksgiving. Not as crowded as expected.

Awesome experience!!! I loved everything about this hike!!

Amazing rewarding hike to angels landing, with the 360 views at the top making the uphill struggle worth it. Is strenuous with Steep incline to the top with lots of switchbacks and with the final kilometre having chains to help up to the top of angels landing along a steep ridge. Definitely not for those scared of heights. Took us about 2 hours to get to the top but took plenty of rest stops along the way and about an 1.5 down. To get to trailhead there is shuttle bus service as the road is for shuttle bus only but buses come every few minutes and run until after sunset. The trail was very busy even in mid November.

Really beautiful hike. Moderate in terms of the physical effort. Hard if you’re scared of heights.

Did the loop clockwise today, solo, 102-104-234-235. Started at 10 am and got done by 4:30 pm. Used 1.5 l of water though had total of 3 l. Weather being perfect (60 F) helped. Not many people on the trail after the saddle point. Markings with cairns can be subtle. The map from AllTrails helped a lot. Overall, an awesome hike!

Someone gave 1 star to this review because she didn't read it before she headed out. It is NOT open during the summer. And I can tell you this is such a correct information as there's no shade(maybe 10% of the time) and perfect cool weather to enjoy the Hot Springs. I recommend you to bring a sandal(not for a hike since I saw a tarantula right next to me!) for the hot springs and the river. Breathtaking! This was one of the BEST hikes I have ever done! Have fun! P.S. Some people were completely nude at the Hot Springs, just a heads up..
