    Nicole Edmonds reviewed Mirror Lake

    I did this easy hike with the fall colors at full glory, it was stunning! It didn't matter to me that the lake was empty because I was just stunned by all the beautiful fall color. Great photo opportunity!

    The hike is easy enough and the views are amazing, just stay away from the edge!

    Great hike with spectacular views once you're at the top! And don't forget to check out the old dead jeffrey pine, it was a great moment for me up there, thinking of how Ansel Adams took that wonderful photo when the pine was alive. I had Sentinel Dome all to myself, going the end of October early in the morning!

    Steep hike all the way up to the lake, great views along the way but the lake was very small and hardly any water left in it this time of year. So, if you're doing this hike, do it for the views rather than the lake. I was the only hiker all the way up and back.

    Very beautiful lake, great shorter hike, easy to do! First stopped off at Barrett Lake and then went on to TJ Lake. Trail was easy to follow, had no trouble following it

    I am a seasoned hiker for sure, having hiked much longer and harder trails than this one, down into the Grand Canyon, up to Wheeler Peak, as well as Grinnell Glacier and other tough hikes, so this hike wasn't very hard on me as far as switchbacks were concerned. But what got me was that the trail wasn't in good of shape as I would have liked it to be, up towards the 3/4 mile point. The trail is very narrow there and right by a very steep drop off. If you weren't careful and made a wrong move or slipped on the loose sandy terrain, you could potentially fall to your death right there. Way too narrow for my taste. Not for people afraid of heights.

    Beautiful short hike, the lake is stunning with its emerald color and I had the hike and lake all to myself when I went on 30 October 2018. I definitely recommend doing this hike if you're in the Mammoth Lakes area. One of the most beautiful lakes I have seen.

    Amazing and very challenging hike! Made it to the summit on 5 August, just start early, it will be a lot cooler and try to avoid the thunderstorms by going early. It is colder on top, pack layers. Wear a hat and lots of sunscreen, also trekking poles help. It is a very hard hike but if you take your time, you can complete it. The trail is very rocky, go slow. It is very windy up there. You can see the trail all the way to the summit if you look closely.

    We have hiked this trail twice and it is always an incredible experience. Very challenging, wear sunscreen, a hat and layer clothing, bring trekking poles and wear good hiking shoes, bring sunglasses. You will go from hot to cold and we also got rained/snowed on on the top. Big temperature changes from the bottom to top and weather changes fast. Pack a rain jacket and wear clothing that doesn't make you feel cold when you get wet. Definitely bring bear spray, we saw grizzlies and black bear and the rams are very aggressive. Try to stay in a group or take the guided ranger led hike up. Definitely a hike you will never forget! Pack plenty of food and water.

    Loved this hike! Dense forest, lots of shade, challenging with great views once you're at the top. Bring plenty of water and sandwich and snacks, wear sunscreen. Carry bear spray. Challenging and beautiful hike.

    Beautiful hike! We hiked this trail after hiking to Grinnell Glacier. This trail is easy and beautiful all at once. It passes through dense forest. Beautiful lake with a beautiful beachy area. Great views from the lake. Bring water and a snack, carry bear spray. Make noise on the trail.

    Amazing trail, we hiked it a total of three times. Bring plenty of water, sandwich and snacks. Make sure to pack a light rain jacket or a wind breaker, it gets much colder up near the top than it is on the bottom. We went through all weather on the way up. From hot to cold. Wear sunblock and carry bear spray, we saw grizzly and the rams were aggressive too, even though we gave them lots of space and never approached them. Try to stick with other people. Amazing views the entire time. It is a challenging hike.

    Amazing hike! We hiked this in September 2017, the trail is easy to follow and offers spectacular views the entire time. It passes through dense forest and open valleys, waterfalls and great views of the glaciers. We started early in the day and only saw 2 other hikers. Bring lots of water and a sandwich and snacks. Carry bear spray. The trail passes through prime grizzly habitat, so make lots of noise. The views of Iceberg Lake are amazing and there is another lake right before Iceberg Lake that is stunning as well.

    Nicole Edmonds reviewed Havasu Canyon Trail to Supai

    10 months ago

    We hiked this trail in January 2015 and it was a very comfortable temperature, in the 60's. The trail from the rim to the Supai Village was very scenic and offered some shade along the way. After we got to the village, we hiked to the falls and stopped at Mooney Falls. The trail becomes super steep at that point and we turned back to the village where we spent the night. We brought lots of water and snacks, sandwiches. Do not attempt this hike in hot weather. If you do, start super early, put on lots of sunscreen, bring plenty of snacks and water. Then hike out super early the next morning. The hike up is the most challenging part, coming out of the canyon. The falls are stunning and beautiful but the village of Supai is littered with trash and the animals are being taken care of. That was shocking for us to see.

    Nicole Edmonds reviewed Bright Angel Trail: South Rim to Phantom Ranch

    10 months ago

    We hiked this trail in February 2015 and it was the perfect time to have cool and comfortable temperatures. It was in the 60's when we started on the rim and it was 78 when we got to the bottom. The first day, we hiked to Indian Gardens Campground and spent the night in our tent. It is a good campground and has pit toilets and water. Very quiet. The next morning, we hiked down to Phantom Ranch. We spent approx. 2 hours resting there and bought more food to eat at the snack bar. We hiked back up that same evening to Indian Gardens and spent another night there. I would recommend, after my own experience being very challenging, that you spent a night at the Phantom Ranch campground or the cabins down there BEFORE heading back up to Indian Gardens. Then spend a night at Indian Gardens and hike out. Bring plenty of light weight snack food, dehydrated hiker meals and a pocket rocket for warming up your water and adding to your dehydrated meal for a light weight, quick meal. It was very helpful that you could fill your water down in the canyon at several water stations. Also, it was great that they had lots of drinks and snacks to purchase at the Phantom Ranch snack bar. You can also pre order a full meal at Phantom Ranch before your trip, if that is what you prefer. This trip is a trip I will never forget. Don't attempt this hike without proper preparation and when it is too hot.

    We hiked the entire entire trail to all three bridges. We were the only two hikers out there the entire day. It was an amazing experience for us. Challenging trail, lots of ups and downs, quite a bit of elevation change and you will need to do this hike on a cool day and bring lots of water and snacks, a good sandwich. Be prepared for it to take longer than you expect. Great views the entire time, especially when you go up on the canyon. We had a little bit of trouble seeing/finding the cairns on the trail and therefore, we got lost towards the end of the hike and that extended our hike to a total of 11 miles. We passed by a beautiful native american ruin down in the canyon.

    We hiked this trail on 13 February 2018 and loved it. The weather was comfortable and cool. We hiked it counter clockwise and that worked very well for us. We were the only ones on the trail, the entire time. The trail is easy to follow, it is well marked but you do have to pay attention to the markers all the time. It is very strenuous and rugged and involves a lot of scrambling and climbing. Great stunning views the entire time, so this trail never gets boring. A great workout with amazing scenery. Make sure to take plenty of water, no matter what time of year you go. Pick a cooler time to hike, preferably in the off season. Bring a lot of snacks and a sandwich. Pack more than you think because it can take you all day out there. The trail offers back country campsites for those who want to sleep out there and finish the next day.
