Took me a lot longer to get up than I thought it would, amazing views, difficult but completely worth doing if you are prepared and bring plenty of water!

This is a beautiful, well maintained trail. It has varying terrain and a huge reward, with beautiful views all the way. I wouldn’t bring small children, as it does get very steep and can be slippery at the end. Great for pets, trail running, and peace and quiet.

Great trail - not too busy, but still very scenic. I'd pick Fairyland Loop over Peekaboo if you have limited time; otherwise try and do Navajo Loop / Peekaboo / Queens Garden trails.

Really enjoyed this trail - not quite as spectacular as Navajo Loop or Queens Garden - but the lack of crowds more than make up for it. Much of the walk is exposed so start early if you can - but there's no really steep sections.

A good combination of trails - I'd recommend starting early as both Navajo Loop Trail and Queens Garden Trail get pretty busy. I did Navajo, then Peekaboo Loop and by the time I got to Queens Garden trail (aroud 9am) it was already starting to get busy.

Fantastic scenery. Try and do the walk at sunrise or sunset. Avoid peak season if you can. If you have the time, combining this walk with Peekaboo Trail means you'll avoid a lot of the crowds.

My favorite trail to run on the Wasatch front- never steep, great views alternating with shade!

Started at 3pm, plenty of parking available and only a handful of other hikers on the trail...most were returning from the Summit. Really enjoyed the switchbacks and the trail was easy to follow to the Saddle. Took a wrong turn from the Saddle to the Summit. FOLLOW THE STACKED ROCKS! I followed footprints leading me off of the trail onto a pretty steep/cliffy grade. Took a minute for me to backtrack and find the trail again. The view from the Summit was incredible...definitely a must see! And I was surprised to be the only one up there for almost an hour.
The hike back was a fun adventure with a few rain showers, spotting more wildlife (mountain goat/deer) and about 2 hrs of hiking in the dark. The lightning show was breathtaking! Made it back to the parking lot just before 11pm.
Needs for my hike included: Hydrating well before the hike to prevent cramping, sunscreen, sunglasses, an extra layer of clothing for the Summit and after dark, rain poncho, and head lamp. Took up 2L of water (had plenty left over that we gave to a family that was running low) and some snacks to keep my energy up (fruit leather, nut rolls, jerky).
Excited to hike Timp again soon and hope this review helps for any first time Timp hikers.

I did this trail yesterday and connected with cherry logging trail on the way down. It is 80% over Grown and Terrible to get through. It’s in the shade which is nice but definitely not a trail to do late summer and I clocked 7 miles getting to the top, one way.

Good family trail

I'm giving this 3 stars and I'll tell you why. First of all, there is no actual trailhead with signage. We drove up and down the road for about 20 minutes using the app directions and no trailhead in sight. We then asked a ranger who informed us that there isn't an actual trailhead, but there are 2 sort of trails, an upper one and a lower one. By the time we thought we found what looked like it might be one of them, we were tired and discouraged. Maybe another time.....

We enjoyed fabulous views with sightings of several families of big Horn Sheep! lots of young ones that made me a little nervous for their safety on the step cliffs, but I'm sure they know what they're doing!
At the end of the trail you are rewarded with a beautiful and fantastical photo opportunity!

Do not go without a permit. BLM and the sheriff check several times a day. The fine is huge not to mention federal court and the bad karma from doing the wrong thing to Mother Nature.

Protecting the wave and surrounding area is critical. It is fragile beauty.

It took us 8 months but we finally won a permit. The effort was worth it. No one can really describe the mind boggling beauty of this hike.

It is as though you are on another planet. Enter the lottery every month until you are awarded a permit. It is truly the golden ticket.

Sandy in areas which is exhausting. Take the detailed map you get with your permit. We used it way more than I thought we would. You are on your own out there.

The ranger will stop you and examine your permit. Writing down the details. They keep careful track of who is out there.

Just a quick walk but a beautiful little spot.

Great trail for individuals or family biking, jogging, or walking. Flat, paved, well maintained by the City of Spanish Fork. Follows the Spanish Fork River and adjacent to some beautiful farmland. Very accessible and lots of shade. We've hauled our bicycles from another city to ride on this trail several times and have also walked most of the route. Restrooms available at either ends in Spanish Oaks park or by the ball fields. Really nice urban trail.

Can’t give it 5 stars because of all the people and horse poo on the trail. Would not recommend the short cut after gunnison pass as rock slides are very easy to trigger. Good water source in valley right before the final climb to Kings. Shoulda got 2 liters there but only got 1.

I just got back from doing this hike. It was absolutely unbelievable!!! Stunning breathtaking views. I highly recommend water socks and shoes with ankle support. The water was refreshing and we hiked about 6-8 miles round trip. A must for everyone.

This was a great hike, beautiful scenery and going into the lava tubes was something I will never forget.

this is an amazing hike.

Smooth ride, very straight and level for the most part. hooks up with legacy trail for a little while in Farmington, then splits apart in Centerville. Scenery varies from city, to suburbs, to ranches and farms and back again. lots of streets to cross which slows you down a bit. very well kept!

It was a easy fan trail, and incredible view all around.

Beautiful hike. Hardly saw anyone else on trail. A bit confusing when you get closer to the waterfall but we were able to find a nice shady spot near the water.

Beautiful wild flowers, though here are definitely less as this point in the season. The lake is fun too. If the ski lift is running, you can take it down the mountain for free! Busy hike

Beautiful hike. The waterfall is worth the effort. There is overflow parking just past the trailhead, heading into little cottonwood. Can get really busy on saturdays and holidays.

I first hiked this trail in back March 2018, and it was amazing. It was definitely chilly, but worth every step especially reaching the top. Just a beautiful scenery all the way to the top!

I hiked it again yesterday (Aug 2018) under a warmer weather, which made it more difficult. I wanted to hike back down right away, but I’m glad that I didn’t! Personally, I prefer this trail in Spring season. I finished the hike (both times) in 4 hours or so.

Hiked this on a Sunday with my dogs and only passed a handful of other people. We did have to move over for one guy on a dirt bike. Other than that, super peaceful and gorgeous! The view from the top was worth it even with the haze from the smoke from the wildfires.

This trail is off of 189.Turn onto Sundance Canyon. Follow this road about 10 minutes up the mountain. You will pass a ski resort and then come to a ranger station. The trail is moderate with wonderful scenic views. It ends with a beautiful waterfall. Definitely recommend it. The drive from Herber Ciiy on 189 is gorgeous.
