Hiked Lone peak vía Jacobs Ladder on September 7, 2019. Maybe it is just me but I didn’t feel it was as extreme as a lot of the comments suggest. I was super nervous about the trail because of all the reviews. We hit the trail at 4:44 am although we were shooting for 4 am, and we finished at 5:00pm. We took our sweet time and took tons of breaks probably 15 to 20 minute breaks, every 30 minutes or so and we were not hiking fast. We got to the summit probably around 10:45 or so and spent awhile up too and started back down at about 11:30.First off the ladder part that is the steepest IS NOT straight up!!! In the dark and the coolness I was just enjoying it and seeing all the city lights. I didn’t even feel winded at all. It is steep but in the dark I guess I didn’t notice it. I didn’t feel it was difficult or burning my legs to take another step, kind of steep. The way down it was worse because I could see the ankle rolling rocks that I didn’t even notice on the way up, and it was hotter by then. I do quite a bit of walking so maybe that’s why it wasn’t too bad for me, and it did take us 12 hours round trip. When I was done I could definitely feel certain muscles were sore that I don’t normally use and I didn’t feel like I could turn around and hike this immediately after, but if you’re in descent shape, start early and take your time, it is not as intimidating as some reviews may suggest. My 13 yo daughter came with me and she was sore and walking a little funny the next day from sore muscles, but then again she doesn’t do a whole lot of exercise, and she did the hike just fine. I didn’t take her to the peak however, just near the top. I wanted to check it out first because of how sketchy people said it was. But after I went up I feel it wasn’t so sketchy and that she would have been able to go up the rest of the way, but she was content up near the top, which is totally fine. I would say it is more dangerous than sketchy. Dangerous, because yes if you are not careful and do something dumb, you won’t get a second chance at this hike, but not sketchy to where you’re hanging on for dear life trying to get past some boulder. It is long so you have to have some endurance. I started feeling a hot spot coming on on my way up the ladder so I took off both pairs of socks and put some bandaids over my heel and didn’t get a blister. Reviews kind of had me freaked out as to wether I could make it to the peak because of the risk of death. I was only nervous on the actual peak. Because of the height so I took some picture and then got off the peak. I never felt getting to the peak that my life was in any imminent danger. There are a couple ways to maneuver the boulders so just be smart and don’t be stupid and you should be fine. Thats how I felt anyway. I was more nervous for others I was in charge of as to wether they would be smart about the seriousness of what could happen near the peak, than I was about myself. The other main thing was just keep an eye on the app or gps. On the way up we seemed to go just fine with no wrong turns looking at the app but on the way down we got off the trail a few times (from not checking it often)and had to find it again because it all looks similar, and through the granite fields there is no trail. This was my sixth peak of the seven prominent peaks of the Wasatch Front, but was my favorite so far. Timp seemed harder to me because of the length, but it was my first peak so... Everyone else that had hiked Timp said this was harder for them. Everyone is different I guess . I took about a gallon of water and had 2, 17 oz bottles left over probably from hiking in the cool morning. I wouldn’t have enjoyed this as much starting any later. There is some shade but not a lot. I thoroughly love this hike!! I would recommend anyone who wants a good hike to do it, even if you only went half way and saw the peak and went back , it would be worth it.

Didn’t quite go all the way. Lovely temperature. Nice and cool in the shade with a gentle breeze.

I did this hike with my husband, 10 year old, 4 year old and my 3 month old baby. It took us whole hour to get to the lake. We didn’t know about the waterfall. It was very rocky, and difficult for 3 year old. We carried our 3 month old baby so he was fine. I wouldn’t do it again with my three year old maybe just with my oldest. The view of the lake was so beautiful. People were fishing at the lake. For adults it is definitely recommended.

This trail is very pretty, we only hiked about 3/4 mile in to check it out but it is shady walking along the river and the air is pretty cool

We drove up in a downpour but as soon as we parked it stopped. The trail had a tiny river running through it on the way up to the first creek crossing. I highly recommend this trail on a non sunny hot day. The trail is pretty open not far after the start of the trail. The dirt also gets really hot to burn my dogs paws. we had to run to shade spots.

Beautiful! We loved this hike!

Worth the effort! Lone Peak is a monster of a hike, the first half of it is quite steep and the conditions aren't very appealing. After completing Jacob's Ladder, the views are amazing all the way until the summit, you'll pass some of the most beautiful landscapes Utah has to offer.

Great trail! It has great views the whole way.
