Great day hike, bad for camping. This will give you a work out, and often you have to walk in the water in the first 10 minutes.

Very pretty! This hike will get you breathing, but it’s not hard. Mostly dry, but there was a bit of mud towards the top. The cave itself kind of freaked me out with how slanted it was.

My Strava recording said it was 4.0 miles, 1204 elevation and it took 1 hour 23 mins.

We hiked this trail the other day. It was beautiful, especially in this unusually warm weather we’ve been having. Very little mud. Definitely worth it. We took our roommates’ pup and he had a blast!

Very pretty cave. Somewhat steep but not hard.

Not too difficult, I’d say it’s somewhere between easy and moderate if you’re in decent shape. Much more pleasant in winter vs scorching summer heat. The trail is muddy right now but I was just fine in my hiking boots! Nice short jaunt with awesome views of the Canyon!

I liked the hike and the views... the "lunch cave" was warm and had a great view. The trail was busy and full of mud, slush, packed ice and snow. I'm way out of shape and it took me longer than most up and down but I enjoyed it. Thought it was only 3.5 miles round trip... I was fooled! I seemed to be the only one falling. I'd still do it again only in dryer conditions... or more frozen.

While the elevation is a lot, the grade I felt wasn't as steep as some of the trails we have done near Salt Lake City. It seemed to be more gradual... I enjoyed this hike and would do it again! We went on a Saturday afternoon, Jan 13.. temperatures were in the 40s... the trail was moderately crowded.. we saw about 6 other parties going up and down. The trail was muddy, slushy, icy and slippery in places, so our microspikes did come in handy! We heard there are often rattlesnakes spotted on this trail, though we did not see any. I don't know if they tend to come out more in the summer....

Note: our stats were 4.4 miles, 1,280 ft elevation. This is in comparison to the alltrails stats of 3.5 miles, 1,000 ft elevation.

Definitely a work out in the first 2 miles. I unfortunately had to turn back because my dog got too tired. However, it was a well kept trail with a decent but not over-abundant amount of traffic.

Worth the climb

A lot steeper then our normal hikes. My 7 yr old only made it with a lot of stops and a lot of encouragement. Teenagers made the t with no problem. Great view from the caves.

Went for class. It was a blast. But it was steep. That's the hardest part. I took a lot of breaks along the way. It took me two hours to get up there and one hour to go down. But when you get to the caves it's worth it!

I would rate this trail at the low end of moderate. The caves were interesting. If you are looking for a pretty hike with shade this is not for you!
