    Do this hike now, while the wildflowers are in bloom!

    If you go on a weekend, start early to avoid crowds. We left at 9AM and enjoyed walking through the fog as it burned off. Passed only a few people on the way in. The last quarter of the hike (around 11:30), the trail had become unpleasantly crowded.

    We are fit backpackers and finished the trail in 3 hours and 10 minutes.

    Go early to avoid music blaring 18 year olds.

    Excellent hike with breathtaking views of the western mountains once you get to the top of the plateau, continuing on the west rim trail past the telephone canyon junction.

    Went on January 14 and the portion of the west rim trail up on the plateau is quite muddy. It makes for a serious slog, but worth it ultimately. Just wear waterproof shoes.

    Took us 7 hours to complete this hike. The distance without angels landing is 15 miles.

    Finished in 10.5 hours with plenty of resting time in between. Water is not a problem. In November phantom ranch and manzanita were good refill stops.

    It’s a great hike. I️ feel lame and hypercritical giving it fewer than five stars. But to be honest, the hike didn’t really resonate with me. It’s quite crowded and much of the time spent hiking is in a smaller inner canyon that while pleasant and striking at times is not the epic vista that one thinks of when picturing the Grand Canyon. The trail itself is very well maintained — almost to the point of feeling overly manicured and overly engineered. There’s very little sense of exploration while on this trail.

    Some snow on the trail today, a little bit of ice but not much. Beautiful drive from SLC and the snow made surrounding peaks very beautiful.

    Did a day hike past bishop pass into the lakes beyond. The trail is very well maintained and very moderately graded. Views after the pass are spectacular. We went in October and caught the aspens turning color!

    Worth tacking on to flat irons 1&2. The arch itself isn't particularly impressive but great views of boulder and surrounding countryside.
