Well established trail, fantastic views of Little Cottonwood, the trail gets pretty steep on the approach to Red Pine. If your feeling adventurous continue past the lake up to a few lakes higher in the valley and get an amazing view of Pfiefferhorn. Went in late September, it got pretty cold and windy higher up. If you do go to the upper lakes, some of them might be dry, but Upper Pine is a worthy sight, one of the most beautiful Wasatch Lakes in my opinion.

Been working up to this hike for weeks and it’s been the most rewarding Wasatch trail yet. Wouldn’t recommend it for beginners, this is a long and steep hike. Almost at the peak there’s a fantastic viewpoint, which is a worthy stopping point but it gets a bit more technical to the summit. Went in early October, there was some ice and snow on the second half of the trail so be prepared for that.

Steep but totally worth the stellar view!

This is a fee area- costs $3 per vehicle for an okay hike.

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.

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

Rocky and not a pretty trail, old atv trail.

So I did this hike today (OCT 14th) with my wife. It was snowing when we pulled up to the lot but we decided to trek on anyway. The views were beautiful. We saw a total of 6 deer (although two of them may have been the same ones just several hours apart). We also saw a moose. The going got tough towards the top because the last mile or so is about .6 mile elevation. Investing in some spikes for the shoes is probably a great idea. Some gaiters are probably not a bad idea but hiking poles definitely help to probe the snow. The lake was frozen and it was gorgeous. I forgot my sunglasses so when the sun came out the snow kinda hurt my eyes! Some hikers that were there before us said the route up to Pfeiferhorn was too tough because the snow was too deep. Overall great trail. Easy to follow.

Wish I'd brought gloves and spikes cause it was damn cold after the saddle and slippery on the way down. Beautiful hike though, will do again.

Beautiful hike! Knee deep snow once you get to Lake Catherine, but so worth it.

Beautiful hike and beautiful views!

Beautiful hike. Did this a couple days ago, with the queen's garden loop and then the peekaboo trail. Bryce is such a unique place, worth the effort! Take water. Wear good shoes.

It was an ok trail.
Not much to see.
we'll find a better hiking spot next time.
$3.00 to hike it.
The dogs enjoyed.

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.

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

Left Hurricane about 0630 taking the I15 route up to Bryce. Weather was unfortunately poor. In the low 30s with rainy intermittent sleet and low clouds. Due to the weather and the time there was plenty of parking and surprisingly quite a few people out hiking. It turned out to be a great but wet hike in the canyon.
For what it’s worth I took 89 South, stopped at Red Canyon for an hour hike and then down thru Zion. Absolutely beautiful drive through the canyons. There is a section north of Glendale where the trees are a spectacular array of fall colors. just an overall fantastic drive

Hiked to the Lake early in the morning as usual but this time before the sun came up. Needed a headlamp for the first couple of miles. Even got to see three pair of eyes looking at me in the dark and was kind of eerie not knowing what was looking back at you. By the time that I arrived at the lake it was light enough to see everything. I continued up the trail to Twin Lake and think that I saw the same three deer that were blinking at me earlier.

Really good view, really steep. Good warm up for upper bells reservoir in my opinion. West slabs scramble is a lot more adventurous, but couldn’t find anywhere to rate.

This is definitely not hard. It’s moderate. It seems long though and not as pretty as red pine in my opinion. The lake is amazing though and better than red for sure. Without the ending I’d have given a 3 star actually.

This isn’t too bad. Only hard for about a mile. If you do this hike though, you might as well go one more mile to pfeiferhorn in my opinion though. :)

This trail is probably one of the easier hard rated hikes. If you’ve done Jacobs ladder and summited or even upper bells, this will be pretty easy. Awesome views at the top though. Really fun for a day hike.

Lovely trail to see the fall colors, and the hike is easy/fairly flat with good tree cover and a stream and is dog friendly and wasn’t crowded at all.

Suuuper steep but 100% worth the view. One of my favorite hikes of all time.

I did this hike on the morning of one of the first dustings of the year. The snow level was about 7500 feet. As many have stated, it is fairly steep but I didn’t find it that strenuous and it wasn’t technical. You accumulate almost 2000 feet of elevation gain in less than 2 miles. I reached the top in about a hour. There was limited visibility when I reached the summit and there wasn’t any cairns marking the summit so i wasn’t sure I reached the summit but the AllTrails app marked my spot at the summit. As far as summits go, this one is very accessible and achievable in under 2 hours. Great hike to do with your dog because it doesn’t require any scrambling.

Great time of year to go. Wild temp change from sweating hot to super cold towards summit. Definitely exhausted at the end but totally worth it. Didn’t actually need that much water. 1 liter this time of year was good for me. Friend took the wrong path near top so be sure to stick to the trail. You reached the top when you find the black mailbox.

Perfect hike if you have a limited time in Bryce! Definitely do the connecting trails if you can! Bryce is such a special and unique National Park!

Its snow time and its kind of moderate..Half of the trail covered with light snow, cold at the lake. Moose sightings and fall leaves make this trail awesome!!

Not a kid friendly trail! this was tough, took me a second to find it and then it was exactly a nice hiking trail. got to the top and wasnt that impressed. nice to waste time but the trip down was rough. the rocks were loose and even my dog had issues.
