Definitely an intense workout. I ran up and down the trail in about 2 1/2 hours. The first part of the trail is the steepest and a lot of switch backs. The views over Cedar City are pretty great, but if you're only doing it for the views, shuttle your way to the top and hike down. The hike down is very easy. Almost all down hill. If just hiking and not running, I would plan 4 hours to go up and down.

Fun easy trail. Do this one the first half of the day then cool down hiking Kannara Falls the second half! Be sure to bring enough water, it’s a long hike that’s sometimes very hot.

beautiful hike!

I opted to start at the bottom in the city... much more gratifying to hike up and enjoy the view...according to my tracking it was more like 9.5 miles!!! Start early ... it gets hot quickly!!!

I really enjoyed this hike! I started at the bottom and the first bit was pretty simple. Towards the top it gets a bit steeper but you can feel that you’re getting close to the end. I swear I was almost at the end for the last forty minutes. Definitely not the easiest trail but the sunset was amazing. I recommend hiking it in the late evening right before sunset it’s gorgeous.

I did this starting from the trailhead off of Hwy 143, just before you enter Cedar Breaks National Monument, which is the popular method for people who have left a car on Hwy 14 at the end of the trail. I did not have a car at the bottom, so I went about 3.3 miles downhill and turned around after walking through a long grassy meadow, just before starting a steep descent. Going back up was harder than I though it was going to be, maybe because of the altitude. There are many, many trees down across the trail, but nothing you can't get around fairly easily.

The next day I tried to find the start of the trail off of Hwy 14, so I could climb up to the point where I turned around the day before. But as the person below says, that was a gate for a jeep road posted as the SUU Mountain Center. Later, looking carefully at the maps, this does appear to be the lower access point to the trail, and I guess you can park somewhere along the road.

Just a blink away from town and an easy hike through!

It is a beautiful place! It was a little confusing with the signs to Thor's hideout pointing all different ways. It is a loop with no actual place being "Thor's hideout"... I guess it is the whole area. I did find "Thor's chair".

Not as wet or crowded as kenarra Falls. Good canyons and really enjoyed the quiet time!

its cool not too hard and if you climb on the rocks towards the end of it you get a beautiful view

This is one of the true hidden gems in Utah. The first part of this hike can seem long and dry, but it is really worth it. Be sure to take lots of water. Once you get in the slot canyon it cools down. Take you time and enjoy all the beauty of this canyon.

A really good & easy hike. The only thing that’s not fun is all the loose sand that you have to walk through. Other than that, it’s so beautiful!

Good hike, a hidden gem, but those walking dogs should be wary of broken glass randomly throughout trail

Great hike to start our trip. It was perfect to get acclimated to the area.

Beautiful hike!

Very easy, scenic hiking trail that’s easy for the whole family. You have to off road to get to the head of the trail, but once you’re on the trail itself, it’s a leisurely walking trail. You do pass through water every once in a while but there’s sturdy rocks to use at stepping stones to pass through.

It's a fairly easy hike, but there are no solid trail markers. My friend wanted to lead the trip and got us loss I ended up having to lead us out. I've done this hike solo many times since.

A doctor told me recently that kids get sick bc they don’t play in the mud enough. Well, do I have the trail for you! My hubs and I, and our 2 dogs, hiked this trail today and had a lot of fun. The first mile or so is super muddy, but dries up a bit when you get a little farther. I’ve always been more comfortable hiking in sneakers, but I definitely recommend hiking boots for this trail. It’s a nice, easy hike that we all enjoyed a lot. The dogs had a blast running through the mud and the snow as well!

Beautiful views with surprise slot canyon. Easy trail for hikers. We went to the end and it's a full 6 mile round trip trail

Did this in the early fall with amazing fall colors. Had someone with us who could show us Flannigan's arch. Amazing! Enjoyed the almost slot like canyons, the water, the aspens, and the views of Cedar Canyon and of Cedar Breaks.

Our most favorite hike so far this season. Once in the canyon it even smells wonderful. Great family hike. Took us about 2.5 hours.

we shuttled the trail and started at the top. you lose a lot of elevation in a short distance. most of the trail is switch backs.
there are some pretty views, but I don't know if it's worth the effort.

It's a nice hike with great views. Easy terrain. Good for an afternoon stroll on a bike.

Only got to do Red Hollow and stop at the beginning of Thor's Hideout due to other plans, but it was majestic! The trail itself was a pretty steady incline and decline coming back, not too tiring.
