Really crowded which makes sense because it's not too strenuous or long so kids can come.

very very muddy right now. We didn't want to slip so we didn't climb down the rock to see the falls. Really pretty hike and worth it for sure.

great hike, did it with my 5 year old.

stop at the sweet spot for pan it and drinks.

Went yesterday in beautiful weather. $6 after Alta resort to drive to the top, but worth it. Also worth it to park at the Albion Basin Campground instead of the Catherine's Pass lot. After Cecret Lake, a tiny section of the service road is blocked and under construction, but don't give up, just follow the lift up the hill. It took us 1.5 hours from parking lot to Sugarloaf peak, but with plenty of rest stops. It took us about 1.5 to get down too, but that's because the hill down the peak on the loop is very steep, but still recommended over going back the way you came because it has switch-backs and isn't as rocky as the way up. It also took us longer because at the bottom of the hill we went right instead of staying left closer to the lake, and that put us back a twenty minute detour. All things considered, you could get up there after breakfast and be done for lunch, but I'd recommend snacks. So beautiful!!!

Gorgeous water, beautiful wildflowers!

Best part is you can hike straight from the parking lot, no waiting in line for the tram (1.5hr wait all day on a Tuesday). Wonderful photo opportunities. Not the most interesting hike in Zion but still worthwhile.

Not too challenging. Majestic views! Hike follows the Virgin river. Passed a waterfall that was flowing despite no recent rain. Take the emerald pools trail for an added challenge.

Scenic. We hiked in the afternoon which was ideal as it was shaded. Majestic views all around! We hiked from the 6th tram stop back down to the 5th. Enjoyable.

Did this one in August 2015. Brutally hot weather, but otherwise great hiking conditions.

The hike up to "base camp" was spectacular - beautifully maintained trails, pleasant elevation gain, and uninterrupted views of the canyon. I would recommend that first leg of the hike to most anybody.

The actual Angel's Landing climb is a completely different beast. Between the heat, the treacherous drop-offs, and the altitude, it was an intense hour or so. The view from the point, though, is fantastic - panoramic views of the canyon and its technicolored rock walls complimented by a dozen or so California Condors circling overhead.

A very memorable experience, and a worthy member of the hiker's hall of fame.

Good little stroll for those with young kids that want to start the feeling of walking to a ‘reward’. The waterfall trail portion was CLOSED. The cave is probably best seen in winter - nothing special in summer but feels air conditioned in the heat !!

Amazing hike with so much interest. I would suggest that if people leave out the side track to Bryce Point then this is a fairly comfortable hike and certainly not hard. Would be a shame if this trail was missed because of concern over hard grading. The East Rim to Observation Point in Zion was much tougher and that was graded Moderate. Overall Bryce is a unique place and this loop with the Navajo and Queens Garden will deliver most of the top sites in Bryce in my opinion.

Bucket list river hike into the narrows. Walking stick recommended, can rent them just outside park. Fun, wet + beautiful.

Great Hike go early gets a little warm this time of year.

It’s 1.5 miles straight up hill. No gradual rises but totally doable. Went with my sons 5th grade Fieldtrip and had a great time!

So lovely. Challenging!

Did this right after watching sunrise at Bryce point and was literally the only person on this trail. Gorgeous views of the grand staircase. To me, those views we're more awesome than the hat shop formations. Really easy going to hat shop because it's all downhill. So, coming back was really steep. Even just those two miles back were exhausting.

This should definitely be rated as difficult. I just tried it yesterday and much of the trail is washed out. It is very tricky to find the trail as it is not well marked and gets washed out in several places. Go slow and look up not down to make sure you stay following the trail rather than a runoff. Amazing geology and colors. No one on the trail at all when I took it. Definitely take the castle bridge loop to the east. Amazing views.

bring water shoes!

Went in through Butler Fork and summited Gobbler’s Knob (to the right) first, came down and then did Mt Raymond. Pretty awesome way to knock out two peaks in a day. This route put me at about 10.5 miles and 4,225’ of elevation gain. Highly recommend.

We decided on this hike when we found out that Angels Landing was closed. Started early, (August 12 2018 with a predicted high of 95F) and glad we did. This has to be one of the most beautiful hikes we have done and for someone of my advanced age it was definitely a challenge. Coming down was not so easy either. Beauty at every turn though

Great trail with some shade early but more exposed closer to Observation Point. Flat until last .75 mile to cut over to the Observation Point trail where it's more vertically challenging and followed by relatively flat out/back Trail out to Observation Point. Extraordinary views from Observation Point much less so on the East Mesa trail to/from.

Is this open yet? I am surprised to see comments from people even this week

Delightful easy hike

Excellent hike—really hits the highlights of Bryce Canyon. Lots of great viewpoints! The distance actually registered 3.8 Miles and elevation gain was 673 feet. We followed the exact trail.

This was maybe one of the most fun hikes I’ve done to date!!

Loved the view of Pfeifferhorn , one lake was dry but still beautiful.

Standing on the peak as I type. Going down may be a bit treacherous. That was the steepest 2 miles I have ever hiked up.

Like others have said the trail sort of disappears near the top. Then it is some scrambling before you find the trail again. On the way up, I stuck to the left side of the ridge when looking towards the summit. On the way down I mostly just walked right along the ridge line.

Mostly up hill but has some nice reprieve with switch backs and flatter parts. A mix of shady and exposed. The lake was beautiful and it wasn’t too trafficked. Round trip took me about 5.5 hours including a nice break at the top. Love this hike.

The view is always great, but this is my least favorite hike/summit in SLC. The loose shale rock sucks, and makes me worried the entire time. The good thing is looking over Alta and Snowbird, and almost always seeing mountain goats.

This is by far my favorite hike on the wasatch. Start early so you can be to the lake just after sunrise, and you'll probably see moose.
I've hiked it many, many times, and it doesn't get old.
