Some loose rocks towards the very top on the way up/down. Wouldn't bring any pets/kids or someone without hiking boots with at least decent tread. Cool views up top and overall a quick not too difficult hike.

The trail itself is easy to follow. The climb to the top Is steep and very sketchy. Lots of loose scree and slippage. Be careful going back down. The view is worth the effort and it’s an extremely short, fairly easy day hike. Don’t bring your dog, too difficult for our four legged companions.

The perfect short hike. Did this on the way home from Zion, stopped and took us about 45 mins. Rocks coming down we're loose causing us to fall quite a few times but it was an adventure! There is a steep way down on the loop, if not up for loose rocks definitely go back down on the way you came up.

Love this quick hike. Great views at the top. Most of the trail is well marked an easy going. The last ~200 meters is basically up a bunch of scree. Not hard up but walking sticks handy on the way down.

Best to do in the morning as there is no shade. Nice views from the top. A lot of loose rock.

Good hike well worth the view in the end. The trail leading to the back side is easy to follow and in good shape. Once you make the final turn for the top the trail maker decided that straight up was a good idea, it isn’t. Not bad going up and your feet stay pretty well planted, going down is a bit dicey. Poles would help here. There are lots of small pebbles of lava and they slide nicely on the way down. Once back on the normal trail it’s an easy shot back to the parking lot.

The trailhead is a little hard to find, but the trail isn’t too hard just kinda steep going down. The view is definitely worth the hike up. Going in the evening or early morning is probably the best time because there is no shade.

Nice trail right outside of Snow Canyon State Park. You do have to walk around the bad of the hill, beside barbed wire, to get to the backside where the climb is the easiest. A little scramble but there are lots of ways to find the safest way up. Once at the top you get a beautiful view of Snow Canyon! A great moderate hike!

This is a really nice hike with great views of Snow Canyon. I took my six and eight years old children. The path surface has a lot of loose lava rock and makes for a slippery climb. I would take children this age to a climb without loose rock. The hike is right next to the highway which makes for easy access. If you are driving through the area this would be a great place to stop, hike, and stretch your legs.

Spectacular views and a worthwhile short hike. Trail runs right next to barbed wire for a while and the climb section is very slippery.
