Probably one of my favorite trails ever! Highly recommend taking the climbing detours - the ladders can be intimidating, but it’s a fantastic adventure to literally climb up and down the cliff face. A great experience. You bet I’ll be hiking this one again!

Easy trail. Gorgeous views!

I loved the creek running alongside the trail. At the top you have great views of wheeler peak. I did it without snowshoes and I was fine!

did this three times before. While it is challenging, the views you get to see down at the skeleton point worth the effort. On average , it took me about 3.5-4 hours round trip. Lots of water needed

So much snow and only made it just over half the way. Unfortunately we were not prepared for how much snow and how deep it was! Or we would have continued on if we had some snow shoes. Definitely going to hike again at some point.

We started at Nymph Lake, intending to go to Alberta Falls and beyond, but we’re clearly unprepared as the trails were so packed they were like ice. So we came to try Cub Lake trail’s lower elevation and were not disappointed! It’s fairly flat in the early going but before too long it climbs and affords some great scenery. The lake itself is gorgeous and we had it all to ourselves, probably due to some light snow/sleet but it was no problem. This is a great first-day hike for people looking to acclimate before taking one of the more challenging hikes at higher elevations.

Awesome Hike to the worlds largest tree

This was my first hiking experience in Colorado and I’ll never forget it. There are several scenic places along the trail that would each be worthy destinations. The last of the lakes on the trail, Emerald Lake, is a generous reward for a moderate half-day hike.

amazing hike. we loved the views and the challenge. highly recommended.

Lovely!

This was a great place to start for our first trip to Acadia. We came off season, so there were no crowds. Walking instead of driving the route allowed for many photo ops and for us to enjoy every bit of the scenery. However, I would not do this trail again on another trip back to Acadia.

The caves with the waterfall and white pebbles in the steam made the hike unique. Its worth the extra hike to the white rocks.

Spring budding and plenty of water at the falls made this hike exceptional

Variety of fun on this trail! My only complaints are: 1) the amount of traffic in beginning (starting from Visitor Center side); and 2) it was slightly confusing as to which way the trail led at the top of the mountain. We found out way with the help of another hiker. Other than that, this trail was packed with elevation climbs, beautiful views of the distant city, and awesome rock formations. As a hiking rookie, I would call this is a moderate/difficult hike. However, we brought our dog and he led the way the whole time! Will definitely visit this trail again.

Great hike, quite scenic but also quite busy on the trail around the visitor’s center. A little bit of confusion at the top so maybe a few more trail markers but I would definitely recommend.

Great easy hike, a little climbing over a downed tree, but the falls are just beautiful. Lots of gorgeous pics of moss covered rocks with water flowing over.

Completed this route via East Rim Trail, tagging on Cable Mountain - much of the hike was not that scenic, but the final views are epic. They look down on Zion Canyon, including an awesome view of Angels Landing. Much less crowded than any of the regular Zion Canyon routes - saw maybe a dozen people all day. Note the route from E Rim is ~20 miles round trip, ~23-24 if you add Cable Mountain.

As of 4.18.2018, significant routefinding is required above the wash, as cairns are few and far between (and not always "correct"). Also, a couple locals recommended an ascent from the main wash that begins just past the fork noted in this AllTrails route - go a couple minutes beyond the tree-marked fork noted in this AllTrails route and you'll see a very sandy wash, maybe 3'-4' wide, on your right. This will lead you up to the bottom of the bowl, from whence you can link up with the AllTrails route. This ascent avoids the class 4 scramble and is generally much less sketchy than the route recommended by the AllTrails GPS. Be mindful of cryptobiotic soil.

Very pretty, but I went on a Tuesday and it was still crowded as all get out

Great hike! The falls were amazing and really enjoyed that it was a loop. Definitely start at Stanford house and go all the way to the falls!

There are many sections that are truly beautiful and tranquil, deer grazing right up next to the trails and many more spotted through the trees. Lots a nice wildlife spotted on the way to the Sal Hollow campsite and many more on the way back. There are down sides however, the horses have completed destroyed the trail in many sections. At least a solid mile of it is utterly unusable unless you were walking on the sloped sides of the trail due to the horses and mud buildup. Make sure you bring plenty of water with you, and if camping overnight be prepared for the wildlife. The campsite sits about a 1/4 mile away from the creek bed and there were many many coyotes howling nearby and some other unidentified very large animal grunting not too far away.

Nice trail and scenery. If you’re afraid of snakes though avoid it because there is seriously a billion there including water moccasins.

Loved this trail! I got 4.5 miles up today and was stopped by snow as I couldn't find the trail today. Definitely going back when the snow is melted!

Absolutely gorgeous seasonal lake. We hiked to this trail on 4/19 from the Majestic Yosemite Hotel at about 9:00 AM on a snowy morning. There was no snow on the trail, but it’s flat and paved so even if there was it would be doable. By 10:30 the trail was much more crowded. We couldn’t get around the loop because it was flooded but the views were amazing and worth it. Have brunch at the Majestic Yosemite and treat yourself to this trail.

Great trail to takes the kids on. It can be overwhelming how many people are out here though. It is a very heavily trafficked trail. But my four year old loves it, sitting and snacking up in the bald is her favorite. If you add the pinnacle trail to your day it makes it a bit more worthwhile. Great hike to take the dog on, just be aware that not everyone keeps their dogs on a leash, and you may run across a loose one on your hike. :-/

My review is from the perspective of an amateur landscape photographer

I only did the first 2.3 miles of the trail. That’s because my main purpose was wildflower photography. The first 3/4 of a mile is great for wildflowers in mid-April. I counted at least a dozen species within the first 3/4 mile. If you are more adventurous, then go 2.3 miles. You’ll find a large group (20+) pink lady slippers. But they don’t fully bloom until the first week of May

Glad to have gotten here before the bug season so to speak. Definitely be prepared for obvious swamp like conditions after rain.

Went with my wife and two dogs. Beautiful short moderate hike.
