    Dagan Kay reviewed Devils Garden Loop Trail with 7 Arches

    7 months ago

    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.

    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.

    Quick hike with a nice view. A favorite hike of many in the SLC area, and thus VERY busy. Go at sunset and bring a flashlight for the way down for a great time!

    7 of us walked from Salzburg to the trail head and made the journey up the mountain! Cloud cover made the views a little underwhelming, but the hike itself was extremely enjoyable. There was a long section through a riverbed with small wooden stairs and river crossings that were a lot of fun. Take your time and enjoy the beautiful forest!

    Dagan Kay reviewed King's Peak Utah Highpoint Trail

    about 2 years ago

    An amazing three day backpacking trip.

    We night-hiked to dollar lake the first night, reached the summit (despite the snow) and returned to camp the second day and hiked out the third.

    Plenty of water along the way, bring a filter! I also recommend bringing layers, as the hot sunny days quickly turned to chilly nights! This is a must-do for any outdoor enthusiast. Absolutely breath taking and the feeling at the top? Pure accomplishment and joy. Have fun!

    about 2 years ago

    We hiked about 7 miles past the parking lot, to a great little campsite underneath an overhanging rock. This is a fantastic location for backpacking!

    The trail is ranked as difficult, but is fairly manageable, especially if you don't hike all the way into the areas that camping is allowed.

    Sedona is a beautiful and spiritual place and this hike really allows you to see the best of what the place has to offer. My biggest recommendation is to wear proper shoes! Walking in/through water and then alternating into soft, white sand is a sure fire way to get blisters in even the best hiking shoes. I wore chacos (which I love and rant and rave about like everyone else who hikes in sandals), but even they lead to some nasty abrasions on my feet. The solution would seem to be socks with sandals, or frequent breaks to clear the sand off of your feet!

    Other than that, enjoy this beautiful hike. It is surely one of the most breathtaking and unique I have ever completed.

    Dagan Kay reviewed Angels Landing Trail

    about 2 years ago

    Angel's Landing is a difficult hike to rank for me... the paved switchbacks are steep, but fun and totally manageable. It's the top scramble that really deserves to be talked about. This would easily be a 5 star hike if it weren't for the ridiculous amount of people. I suppose that's what you get in Zions, but it felt more like I was waiting in line at Disney Land than hiking in Southern Utah.

    5/5 for the hike itself, the views, the difficulty and the sheer sense of completion I felt at the top, but 2/5 for the fact that it was so overcrowded.

    A 5/5 hike, in my opinion, is one that I would do again without hesitation. Overall, I'm going to say Angel's deserves 4/5. You shouldn't miss this hike, it's truly one of a kind and it's upper section is extremely intimidating (what fun!). But now that I've done it, the crowds keep me from dying to go back. Unless you're terrified of heights, you should hike Angel's Landing!

    Dagan Kay reviewed Grandeur Peak Trail from Church Fork

    about 2 years ago

    A must hike trail in Millcreek! Makes a great "first-time" if you've never hiked a summit before, but is also difficult enough to keep more experienced hikers coming back. Gorgeous views the whole way, with a killer view at the top! Loses a star for the heavy amount of traffic, otherwise a great hike.

    Dagan Kay reviewed Mount Olympus Trail

    about 2 years ago

    My younger brother and I were woefully under-packed for this hike We finished in 6 hours, with about 30-40 minutes spent at the top. Hiking up to the stream was quick and easy, but the last ~1.5 miles are incredibly steep. The scramble to the peak was incredibly fun, don't be intimated! Plenty of good holds and a well-defined course to the top. Pace yourself, stop often and pack lots of water and food!

    On the descent, we found that most of our steps landed on askew rocks or otherwise difficult footing. I recommend a slow and conscious pace, especially down the steepest bits.

    The views back towards the Mt. Olympus wilderness from the saddle and the peak are absolutely amazing. A truly unmolested view of Utah's scenery that makes the steepness and difficulty of this hike 100% worth it.

    Dagan Kay reviewed Broads Fork Trail

    about 2 years ago

    We hiked to the basin/high valley just before the twin peaks. Absolutely wonderful hike. Quite steep for most of the ascent, but the views at the top, both back into big cottonwood and up at the summit, were some of my favorite in Utah. Highly recommend this hike.

    I'd like to come back sometime soon and hike the entire trail!
