    Dagan Kay reviewed Chesler Park Loop Trail

    9 days ago

    Perhaps one of the most beautiful trails in the Mighty 5. I've lived in Utah for quite a while and had yet to make it to the needles - what a mistake!

    Stunning scenery and the relief of some solitude on the later bits of the trail make this one really special.

    I'd rate it as difficult but not technical, go for it! worth the drive from Moab for sure

    If you're on your way to the slot canyons, definitely make a stop here! beautiful and odd.

    A real treat! narrow canyons with some more technical/awkward bits, some of the best slots in Utah.

    the road out there is an hour of driving on pitted washboard - only downside I could think of!

    Dagan Kay reviewed Under the Rim Trail

    9 days ago

    Note that the "partial closure due to fire" has been lifted. I found Plenty of water at all sites too.

    hiked solo from rainbow point to Bryce point in 2 days and one night at swamp canyon.

    not my favorite backpacker in all honesty. First half was relatively uninteresting with a memorable long section through unpleasant burnt Forest. Tough hiking across a myriad of surfaces, with some neat vistas and the majority of the time spent in dense forest and on back trails without much to see.

    day 2 is far more scenic, but the hiking is tough. last 4 or so miles are straight up and out of the canyon with little shade.

    I'd recommend this trail if youre looking to do some distance - it takes quite a long time on the trail (I'm usually quite speedy but spent something like 12-16hrs hiking) to move 23 miles!

    if you're only in Bryce for a few days, try some of the longer day hikes or possibly do swamp canyon to Bryce point in one day.

    I wouldn't hike it again, nor as a 3 day version since fires aren't allowed below the Rim.

    Bryce is bear country too, so be vigilant and practice safe food storage!

    Only hiked about 2 miles (counterclockwise) due to time, but this is first on my list next time in Arches.

    A must-do hike in Utah. Careful on the ice and snow near the end!

    Great hike, more like moderate than hard.

    A wonderfully unique view from the top and lovely tall trees along the way.

    Dagan Kay reviewed Burnt Lake Trail

    almost 2 years ago

    More like a moderate hike, in my opinion. More like 7 miles RT and about 1400-1600 ft elevation. It was a bit chilly at night, but conditions were otherwise great.

    For a nice hike during the day, or a quick backpack trip (like we did), Burnt Lake is scenic, mystical and very very pretty. I was blown away by the teal colored moss that covers the trees on the way up, and by the serenity of the lake.
