Just did this hike with my 12 year old and two dogs today. It was pretty steep in a few places so I would definitely rate this as hard. But we did the whole thing in about four and a half hours. We also noticed that some previous hikers had brought bowls and left water jugs for any dogs that need a drink. We added to the water jugs on it way back so if you head up here, bring a little extra and pay it forward!! Great hike, beautiful view from the top, going to do it again!

Difficult but if you’re persistent and looking for a challenge, the view at the end is definitely worth it. There’s a notebook to sign your name in at the end.

Great trail, 3.5 miles each way, the last 1/2 mile gets steep but the view from the top is worth it. Elevation gain close to 2000 ft.

do not listen to the people who say this is not a hard Trail, those people are likely doing triathlons and are a little cocky. If you are a beginner hiker, this hike is not for you. The rock is very loose and the hike is very steep, especially the last quarter of the hike. Coming down from the top can be very dangerous, but the trail is well marked. give yourself 4 to 6 hours for this hike and bring more water than you think you'll need.

This trail starts close to the highway if you're looking for a hike to break up the drive through Utah. It starts right next to the cemetery if you're looking for the trailhead. There's a big wooden entrance arch, too, but I don't think you can see it from the road because there's a shed.

This is a great hike. I would say it's more moderate than hard however. It does get a little steep the last 1/4 mile but it just a little sweat for a great payoff. I loved the log books and journal at the top. The view is amazing with the light bouncing off the red rock. Amazing.

Some problems with the entry. It's in Parowan (not sure what Sagers is) and closer to
7 miles than 6. Go early before it gets too hot.

Hiked it this morning. The trail is very well kept with benches and water for dogs along the way. Trail markings make it easy to stay on the trail. I tried to draw the trail, but it is not exact. The trail is a little more than 3.5 miles one way with an elevation gain of 2,000 feet. I loved the variety of terrain and different plant life along the way. There are some steep parts but they are for relatively short distances. Good mix of ups and downs then mostly ups in the later part of the trail. Fun hiker's log and thought notebook at the peak.
