This hike has a pretty moderate incline and as a medium level hiker it wasn't too much of a challenge. I thought because of the mileage it might be a bit of a process for me but surprisingly it went smoothly. There are so many beautiful places to take breaks along the trail. There are many creeks, small waterfalls and beautiful trees and greenery along the trail. Honestly, this hike is so worth it. When you finally get to the top its just incredible. The color of Colchuck is hypnotizing. It is a tranquil teal blue and the ice caps and glaciers nearby on Asgard are pretty cool to check out as well. It is such a great place for photographs. An amazing hike for anyone in my opinion!

This is not a review but a question for those who had the opportunity to experience what looks like an incredible place! - I am planning a trip through Utah's NPs May 17-26. Would love to hike out to the hot springs and camp there to have a really early morning soak. Is this something that can be done at Fifth Water Hot Springs? If so, are there plenty of spaces to camp assuming many others may have the same idea as well? Thank you in advanced!

Checked this trail out on a business trip to Denver last week. I saw that it was very highly rated so I packed my snowshoes with me (from Vancouver) and decided to check it out. It's a fairly easy trail but if you're not from Colorado the elevation can definitely take your breathe away a little quicker than normal. It's a nice trail that goes along the edge of the creek with some decent views of the mountains around you. The reason I only rated it a 3 out of 5 is because there isn't really any reward of a great view or anything like that at the end. You just kind of get to the end of the trail and then turn back around. I'd probably check something else out next time I'm out here. But this trail would be great for locals wanting to do a nice trail run or walk their dogs. Not really a destination hike in my opinion though.

Aloha! I typically hike up 1-3 times a week for almost 3 years now. I will be going up again on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday this week. It is often windy and/or rainy but we never have issues as we always have the right gear (including microspikes and gloves) which are supplied by me when we go. If you're looking to hike and want to link up or get some ideas of what this trail looks like feel free to reach out to me on my Instagram @mike.karas or mikekarasphotography@gmail.com. Bring plenty of water for this hike and other hikes out here in Hawaii.

Aloha! I typically hike up 1-3 times a week for almost 3 years now. I will be going up again tomorrow on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I have probably done this particular hike more than anyone else on island. (over 120+ times) It is often windy and/or rainy but we never have issues as we always have the right gear (including microspikes and gloves) which are supplied by me when we go.

A fun, easily accessible trail with a wide variety of terrain and plant life. I went immediately after a storm and the trail was quite muddy, as large portions of the trail are turned into veritable streams when it rains. Very light foot traffic until the very end (Phillips Loop was quite crowded). The trail head is across the street (Grizzly Peak Drive) from the steam trains parking lot.

This highpoint has so much potential but..... The hike is easy up the forest service road. No real obstacles. Go past the Doppler radar dome and hang a left up to the radio towers. Marker is behind the radio towers.

2/15/19: Weather was sunny and 40-degrees, but 20-30mph winds were pretty consistent. Only two other people on the trail. I parked at Bridge Creek trailhead. This app and the park info say this hike is only 4.5 miles long, but both times I’ve hiked it my mileage was well over 5 miles and even closer to 6. Today’s mileage recorded 5.9, so I’m pretty sure it’s longer than the published 4.5 miles. I wore spikes the whole way (did the lollipop loop clockwise). Definitely not enough snow for snowshoes. The spikes were very helpful on the east and north facing slopes where the trail is fully snowpacked or ice. The south and west facing slopes were mostly bare and dry or muddy, so some of the time I was treading carefully with spikes on rocks. A few places near the Windy Peak spur were a little tricky to navigate due to multiple footprint tracks diverging from the trail, but the app worked great and I was able to watch my progress on it to ensure I kept going the right direction. Altogether a lovely hike!

February 11, 2019 Must persevere to the end, the waterfall is worth it! Cross the stream at least 16 times each way. Just walk through the stream and have some dry shoes to change into after the hike. Walking stick was super helpful. Take the left branch of the river at the fork. Stream gets about 3 feet deep in places. Went after a pretty big storm though. Loved the little bamboo forest too!

Feb 12, 2019 Very good trail with some phenomenal views: Big Beach, Little Beach, cliffs views from above, beautiful! Agree with word of warning, if you are not comfortable with the optional clothing setting of Little Beach. crossing the beach was not so bad but quite a few unclothed people were also up in the forest part where you are walking. We started from Big Beach and then you climb up the cliff to the north and then over to Little Beach. The backside after the forest has the slippery dry red dirt. we kinda jog stepped down.

Go right at the fork. Not left. Otherwise it’s straight up. I went left and there was too much snow to make climbing safe after a while. I had to back track and of course coming down in snow was more difficult than going up

Did this trail 15Feb - still very icy and slippery in many places. Would recommend spikes or at the very least good hiking boots. On the way down I slid quite a few times in hiking boots. Still, a wonderful trail that has great views and I would highly recommend it! **the optional trail (not on the map) past the lookout that leads to the top of the second flatiron is incredibly icy and steep. I bailed in hiking boots due to slipping and falling a few times. Definitely take spikes if you plan to do this

I started with just my boots. After about a mile, I strapped on my shoe shoes. I definitely needed them to complete the trail. It was really windy along the ridge. Eventually the tracks from previous hikers disappeared, and I was making fresh tracks. I didn't see anyone on the trail. It was a great, solitary hike. It took about 2 hours.

Great hike. A bit wet and muddy but incredible views and dog friendly. Beware of Mountain Lions or go hiking with Travis Kauffman.

Just correcting some errors in information about the Holy Fire. First, Trabuco Creek Road starts out as hard pack gravel until the National Forest border. Then it continues as a combination of dirt with paved creek crossings (and a single bridge) that ends at the Holy Jim parking lot. There the canyon splits - with Holy Jim to the left and Trabuco Canyon to the right. The creek road up Trabuco Canyon from the parking lot is for all intents and purposes gone after the recent rains. The combination of fire damage, debris flow and landslide has more or less wiped the canyon clean. There is a low probability of the forest service rebuilding the road since there is no need now that the cabins are all gone. I expect the hiking/bike/equestrian trail will eventually be cleaned up and reopened. Holy Jim Canyon, on the other hand, was not impacted by the Holy Fire. There has been recent flooding due to rain, and the road from the Forest border to the parking lot has been washed out in several places, but Holy Jim, the Holy Jim cabins, and the Holy Jim road and trail remain. The Forest Service has officially announced that they will re-assess access in September, 2019... but much work will need to be done before then.

We were with a group of mixed ability and snowshoeing breaking trail, therefore unable to go the entire trail. What we experienced was good though. Would like to go back in non-winter and do the entire trail.

Challenging but really beautiful hike. Like others, I'd recommend hiking the loop counterclockwise. We started relatively early (8:30) and didn't start seeing others on the trail until we hit the falls 5 miles in.

It's a nice place for an easy calming walk. Lots of birds around eagle's have been hanging around the few days. What a great sight.

This trail is open to the public as of February 2019 per Park Ranger. Absolutely gorgeous trail, nature overload bro! The views are intense and it is wild back in the canyon! Be safe, try not to go alone! Not for kids, you are deep in the wilderness here without any signal to your phone or devices.. This is an absolute must do for the hiking enthusiast!!!

This is a good trail for a calm afternoon, not a challenge. This park is great on the week days but gets way too crowded for my taste on the weekends. I would rate this trail for a Friday afternoon light traffic, which is great for a reactive dog (like I have) to get some exercise.

Great simple trail but be warned: when I returned to my car after the hike the car parked behind me had been broken into. The window was smashed and personal items were stolen.
