Very nice

Lots of snow. Some places knee deep. Deff a tough climb to the summit.

We were going to try and do this trail May 15, but the road is closed about 4 miles before the trailhead. You can do the trail that starts at the lower camp grounds (3.4-mile trail) and then complete this.

This is a nice scenic drive with good vistas. It is closed about 2/3 of the way (just after the overlook).

This is a scenic drive. It was closed at Mather Lookout 5/17/20. We enjoyed the drive and stopping at the lookout. Plenty of photo opportunities. Definitely want to come back later in the season when more is open.

We didn’t get to see the caves. This was a short trail behind visitors center (which was closed due to covid 19). Great views and nice short hike

This is more of a leisurely stroll than a hike but we did enjoy the identification of local plants.

A nice easy hike with some pretty vistas. Some sections had lose rocks which slows you a little. This hike has some valley views but not scenic views the whole way. Hiked 5/16/20

Decent conditions up until 3 mile mark. 2nd mile still has a bit of snow but once you reach the third mile that connects to the other trails it’s impassable. Can’t find trail due to ~4 feet deep snow

Really cool ghost town.

We wanted to go to Fall Canyon so Google took us this way and it was awesome. Once you get past the washboard road, you start snaking your way up and down through the cayon until you get to Leadfield. We stopped and took a quick look at the mine shaft and abandon buildings. Next is some driving through a dry riverbed until a stop for a couple of petroglyphs. What follows next is the real payoff.... a slot canyon but for trucks... Now, some words of caution.. tire blowouts are real; a Jeep in front of me lost one on the washboard section. There are also several sections of jarring ruts and protruding rocks that you need to look out for. Don’t get going too fast. Highly recommended trail!!

Easily accessible and very interesting. Ther is no actual trail, just park where ever and walk around to anything that looks interesting. Down by the bottle house ther is some written information about the history of the short lived boom town.

2nd half of the drive after Thimble Peak Trailhead is stellar. Definitely need high clearance, the road can get very very rough. The constant vibration and rumble slightly took away from the experience after enduring it for 15 miles. Not the most spectacular scenic drive out there, Kolob Canyon in Zion is better. Enjoy though

You'll need a high clearance vehicle to do this drive. Probably wise to let a little air out of your tires once you get into the canyon. Road can be somewhat rough and bumpy in spots, but nothing too technical. The first several miles leading up to the canyon are lame. But once you get to the heart of the canyon, it's breathtaking. Varied landscapes with a rainbow of colors. Most of the drive is within an open canyon. The last few miles are along a narrow path between steep walls. Very cool.

Hiked 3/3/2020 One of the most spectacular hikes/experiences I've ever done/had. It's a bit of an effort but very doable. The views are unmatched in the park (Telescope might compete but I've never done that one). Don't be afraid of the scramble. It is barely a scramble and isn't treacherous. You'll fell like an absolute bossanova when you summit. Should be able to see the eastern sierras on a clear day to your right (if you're looking towards mesquite dunes). Yell out a big ole summit screech at the benchmark and enjoy the equally challenging effort on the way back!

Outstanding sightseeing. Easy road. I used my 4x4 for better grip, but not needed though.

Completed this Feb. 15, 2020. we started at Upper Lehman Creek campground and ended at Wheeler peak campground. The lower section of trail from ULC campground to the meadow was mostly covered in a thin layer of icy snow. While it is do-able in hiking boots, we used micro spikes to provide more grip and decrease some of the work of walking. I strongly recommend using those. Beyond the meadow, snow is 3+ feet deep and nearly impossible to traverse without snowshoes*. This is also where the trail becomes much steeper. The last section is comprised of 2 long switch-backs and then a steep ascent to the ridge of the campground. In snowshoes, this was a challenging section of trail. The last 0.25 mile up to the campground is pretty exposed to wind, which just adds to what makes that last stretch a PITA. overall, for 2 very experienced hikers, this was just under a 4 hour round-trip winter hike. *We used free snowshoes lended out by the Visitor center.

Our first time on this drive, it was quite spectacular. The first 10miles were somewhat boring and we covered that in 35min, and then the interesting part of the drive started. Covered next 17miles in 2hours, including stopovers for some great pics. Very unique drive through the canyon, must experience it. Afternoon sun made for some real good lighting and pleasant hues.

Incredible views of the mountains and canyons. The narrows towards the end we’re really beautiful

A classic. I’ve done this hike every year around September/early October for the last 3 years and will continue to do so. Steady grade up and the final mile gets pretty steep and grueling. The peak is over 13,000 feet, very exposed and windy most of the time so bring appropriate layers! Altitude sickness can affect people if they aren’t used to being up this high. If you are coming from sea level or don’t hike a lot, I suggest camping at the 10,000 foot wheeler peak campground and spending 24 hours at that elevation before attempting to summit to help your body acclimate. Also, you want to start this trail EARLY!! We always start the hike just before sunrise. The winds usually pick up and get stronger later in the day.

Great western throwback with a paved road. Some buildings are fenced off due to them not being safe. The train station is privately owned but it was open when I went. Mines everywhere. Look for the signs of a shootout at the jail. For photos and information about this trail and many more follow me on Instagram @nathan_vanengen
