Hot and gorgeous! Wear your sunscreen. The trail is pretty well marked but you definitely don’t want to get lost here. Drink your water. The landscape views are consistently gorgeous but there’s no one specific thing to look out for.

Really enjoyed this one. Not to difficult and amazing views at every turn. Pick up the park brochure at the beginning of the hike. It will give you information about the geology and flora of what you are seeing at four marked vistas.

Fantastic hike on Easter Sunday with temperatures in low seventies. Definitely not for those afraid of heights. When you get to the rim it’s hard to believe you can hike down to the wash. A ton of fun. We did the loop clockwise, which worked for us as you gain part of the elevation halfway through the loop. A little confusing when white rim trail forks off. GPS feature works great.

Great hike! Not for those afraid of heights. We decided not to follow the other reviews and head down the hogback and up the wash. I didn't really notice a difference, other than the amazing views hiking out on the ridge. The views the switchbacks were amazing! It was fun scrambling over the rocks down (and back up) the switchbacks. Very unique for even the experienced hikers.

Yes, like the other review said.. Do the wash first. 3 miles uphill in the sand is no fun,

The description says to hike the hogback 1st and the wash on the way back, but it think it's better to do the wash 1st. That way the climb back up to the top isn't as bad.

Wonderful canyon views as you look east past the Colorado River to the beautiful La Sal Mountains in the distance. A quick but worthwhile stop on the road to Grand View Point.

Rewarding view after a short walk

Great trail, well marked with cairns.

We hiked this with an 8 and 10 year old and had a great time. Beautiful views, no portion is very difficult by itself, and enough rock scrambling to keep it fun.

Easy hike, but you do it for the views of the Needles section of Canyonlands NP. Jaw dropping views.

Great views of the needles and surrounding areas. Full sun exposure. Fun time climbing around the slick rock. There is a loop for part of the trail and a few view points that require leaving the main trail for hundreds of feet. This trail requires you to follow cairns.
