Hiked the main trail (it was well packed) in hiking shoes and Yaktrax. No problem. Used the snowshoes for exploring the the meadows. Absolutely beautiful.

We went in mid December (this month) and we brought snowshoes. Turned out we didn’t really need them but I would have liked micro spikes for the way down. There was a meadow that we did snowshoe through. There were quite a few wide-tire bikes on the trail and that looked fun.

Great snowy hike today, Dec. 8. Did not see any moose, saw plenty of tracks. Snowshoes not necessary, but microspikes very helpful. Took a little less than 1 hour to reach 2nd meadow.

Beautiful hike with amazing views of Timp. We got some directional help at the top to circle around on the Salamander trail which was perfect.

Easy loop trail with scenic variety of forest, meadow and panoramic views of Timponogos which steal the show. Definitely layer up this time of year, but I was sweating in the sun when protected by the trees. The melting ice also makes the path very muddy and surprisingly slippery, so be careful.

Took the puppers up here today, was a mild hike, views of Timp are amazing, there is a nice mix of shade and openness. It was a quiet trail (Sunday) only came across a couple of people. Was a little muddy in spots from snow melt after the warm weather.

It’s one of my favorite hikes in AF canyon. Can’t beat the scenery. It’d rate this as moderate though.

Beautiful hike. Barely passed anyone else on a Sunday morning. A light dusting of snow made things a bit muddy. Great views and scenery as the seasons were changing from fall to winter

Almost no traffic. Moderately steep, but my kids did great (6, 8, 11, 13). Great views of Timp, the leaves were in full color.

Great hike with a great reward at the end. The cave lets you cool down before descending.

We loved the hike and the tour! We took our 3 year old and 1 year old and they loved it.

One of my favorite hikes the way up is amazing and the caves are even cooler!

I was so looking forward to this trail, but we were unlucky 25 minutes into it a couple (Soldiers - a man and a woman) came back and told us that they just had to escape from two mountain lions who were running down the hill, frightened by something. She had to shoot in the air to make the mountain lions change direction. The woman was shaking so of course we all turned back. I am glad it was not us in front of them

We loved this hike! We went at 9 am when the trail was cool and shaded. It is a bit steep but paved and there are benches and places to catch your breath along the way. We’ve taken small children on this hike and have alternatively let them walk and carried them.

great hike took my 2, 5, and 8 year old boys they all loved it and was a lot of fun was a long hike but the cave was well worth it and the view was beautiful

Amazing and glad I had trekking poles!

Don't wear sandals like I did! Wear good athletic clothes because this hike is a great workout. There were points where I'll be honest, I wasn't sure hiking uphill all that way was worth the cave up top, but boy was I wrong! Happy to report it is definitely worth the climb. There are beautiful mountain and valley views, and the cave (thank goodness) was an amazing place to cool off on a hot summer day. Oh, and there's bacon inside (take a ranger tour, you'll see what I mean). My favorite cave in the national park service.

amazing all the way around. Loved it.

Hiked this on a Sunday with my dogs and only passed a handful of other people. We did have to move over for one guy on a dirt bike. Other than that, super peaceful and gorgeous! The view from the top was worth it even with the haze from the smoke from the wildfires.

Great trail. Steep at the beginning, but it levels out and you get some nice meadow views of Timp.

It's steep, but the cave is beautiful. Great hike

It’s 1.5 miles straight up hill. No gradual rises but totally doable. Went with my sons 5th grade Fieldtrip and had a great time!

The view is amazing. Anyone that says differently is taking it for granted. Bring lots of water because it gets hot and it’s uphill the whole way up. Make reservations ahead of time and bring a jacket for the caves because it can get fairly cold inside the caves. Loved it!!

I did not do the cave tour because tickets were sold out today so will give it 3 stars but the hike is a good cardio , I have enjoyed the workout. Next time will make sure to do the tour.

Meh. More for the workout, not the views.

I went on this hike with my grandparents, aunts, and younger cousins and although it was a fairly steep path, they all made it to the top just fine.

Great views. Uphill the whole way. Bring lots of water. There is shade and benches for resting. Great workout - took us about 90 mins up and back but we didn’t visit inside the cave because we didn’t know you have to buy tickets to tour prior - you can buy them there but we got there about 11am and wouldn’t have been able to get in a tour until 4pm. Recommend making online reservations. But still cool to make it to the top without going in the cave. A lot of families on the trail - a lot of the kiddos were crying or tired so depending on your child’s activity level they may not love it.

the hike up is steep, and the caves were pretty cool. I am not a huge fan of caves, so i can't give it a very high rating... but I did enjoy the hiking portion!! Ranger Elaina did a great job leading the tour, too. :) if you're going, bring water and a jacket. it's hot this time of year, and the cave is cold...

Beautiful! A great way to start your morning. We started trail at 7am and returned by 10am. We came across 7 mountain bikers and only a few hikers. Pleasant.
