    Frank Finan reviewed Willis Creek Narrows Trail

    about 2 hours ago

    This hike is AMAZING! It's not a hard hike at all. I did it with a two year old in a hiking backpack. The narrows never get too narrow that I couldn't get the backpack through. A lot of the hike is shaded. If you're going to go visit Bryce Canyon, it's about a 35 minute drive from Bryce and it's worth it! You will need an SUV of some sort. The roads can get pretty sandy and rough.

    about 2 hours ago

    This is the trail to do if you really want to see Bryce and get a decent but not overly long hike. The switchbacks are not that hard. Don't let people scare you by saying they are difficult. If you get tired on the switchbacks, there are plenty of place to stop and catch your breath.

    Fun trail. I hiked with my two year old in a hiking backpack and was fine. The switchbacks can be intense at time but just take your time and enjoy it. We didn't actually go in the cave but there are plenty of places at the end to sit and enjoy the view from up top.

    I will say this trail is great for everyone. It's not long. It has a bit of a workout going up the slope and a great reward at the end of the hike. It can get crowded. We got there at 7:15am and the parking lot was already getting full. Go in the morning also to escape to heat. There is no shade so bring a hat of some sort and plenty of water.

    I mean, I guess it's a hike. The road is paved and it's pretty cool to see the formations. If you go here, go to the park at night.

    Not much of a hike but seeing it is still cool. Driving through the scenic route is also worth it.

    July 20, 2019. Good hike. I started it from Glacier Point and it was a good 3 mile round trip hike. Going up is a steady incline and once you get to the dome the incline get steeper. Super fun, greats views of El Cap, Half Done, Three Brothers, and Yosemite Falls.

    Short little good hike. Great little waterfall spots. It is paved. I think most people use it to get to the Lake Blanche Trail.

    Frank Finan reviewed Farmington Creek Trail: Upper Canyon Section

    about 1 month ago

    July 10, 2019: Did this hike with our two year in a hiking backpack and it was doable. The waterfalls are very pretty. The second waterfall has a rope you can use to help you down to it because it is very steep to get to it. I did not go all the way down to the waterfall because of our two year old but you can see the waterfall from the trail and it's pretty cool. The trail itself isn't too bad but there are some steep points and some spots are not shaded so make sure to bring sunscreen. There are some creeks you will have to cross and your feet will get wet.

    Fun little trail with kids. They love the animals you get to see like the Buffalo and elk.

    June 29. I want to go back and do this hike because there is still snow everywhere. You couldn't even see where the trail is so it was hard to know where we were going. We didn't make it to the bristlecones because the snow was too deep and we didn't know where the trail was. Give it a month and then go. It's still worth driving up there though!

    This a really fun "hike"/"tour" to do with little ones. We took our 2 year old and she loved it. It's a super fun tour. You definitely need to get your tickets in advance. We got out on the recreation.gov site. If you have kids under 5, you can only go in the gothic palace and lodge room.

    Frank Finan reviewed Grand Wash Trail via Northeast Trailhead

    2 months ago

    We love this park. It has some of the best hikes. The grand wash is a pretty easy trail but we added the Cassidy arch to it which made it quite long in the end and kind of tiring but if you just do the grand wash, it super easy and the views are spectacular. You feel so small inside the canyon.

    This has been one of my favorite hikes that I have ever done. One the maps/brochures they give you when you enter the park, it does say that the Cassidy Arch is a strenuous hike. The elevation at the beginning of the hike is very steep and there is no shade so bring plenty of water. The views though are AMAZING!!! There isn't a moment of the hike where I was bored and didn't see something new. We hiked it with our 2 year old in a hiking backpack so going up the stairs was intense but when you go down it went super fast.

    2 months ago

    The trail is pretty steep all the way up. I started it around 10:30 a.m. and wished I would have started earlier because it's getting so hot and there is no shade. Great hike though and it's doable with kids. The beginning of the trail does smell really good because of the flowers/plant life.

    It's beautiful up there but the loop trail is still covered in snow which we were surprised since it is June. The drive is still worth it though because it's so pretty.

    Beautiful hike! Do the whole loop because it's so worth it. I didn't think this hike was very hard at all,especially towards the end it's pretty flat. There is a little snow in some parts but there were people wearing their chacos doing it so anyone can do it.

    A good bit of snow still on the path but it's pretty packed down so walking on it wasn't hard. Wear ok shoes and you should be fine. Beautiful hike with an awesome ending.
