Get out early. Love this trail . Great for mountain biking, hiking, jogging.

Nice short hike. Park map shows it has slot canyons, but I think that’s a stretch. It’s a steep short hike over rocks at the end. It’s always nice and cool up high, by the red rocks.

Short easy trail. Scrambling up the steep rock to the pioneer names is a blast! There are two points of entry onto the trail. The one where you can see the names from the road is shorter.

Ran this trail counter clockwise. Pretty technical, not a fast loop. There are some portions that are more runnable than others, but overall a ton of fun. Like some other reviews noted, the trail can be quite hard to follow in places, particularly where it crosses over solid rock. There are some cairns, but not enough to solely rely on them. But between the cairns, your sense of direction, the trail map on this app, and keeping an eye out for mountain bike tracks, you can mostly stay on the trail. Views are pretty great throughout. I ran it on a fairly overcast evening, about 90 degrees out. I went through 2 liters of water. Make sure you're carrying enough. There's very little shade.

We were visiting from Tucson.
My GPS showed 6.75 miles round trip from trailhead with just over 1000’ if climbing. This is a moderate trail, not really hard. Trailhead is just outside a housing subdivision. We went counterclockwise. The first and last mile are on a featureless road and uninspiring. The middle is an unbelievably beautiful landscape of rocks, boulders, ridges, and washes. I was really surprised at the beauty so close to town. Started at daybreak and met one other couple on a Sunday. Lots of evidence of MTB use. Relied on Trails map as rocky terrain sometimes hard to follow. Cairns help but network of trails caused us to get off-route twice.
Would highly recommend.

We've done this hike several times and finally thought to bring some headlamps. The caves are nice and cool so if you bring water you will be fine out in the sun. Fun for kids to discover.

This is a quick stop. Take a picture. Continue on type of hike. When I saw images of this I thought it would be awesome but the canyon is very short and that picture is hard to get as it is a popular hike.

Easy. Cool respite in the late morning shade, with sun not quite overhead.

Did full section of trail shown + uphill section up to Snake Pit. This is a mountain biker paradise but for trail running gets a 3. Trails are great for bikes but not as great for running. The uphill portion on SW side back up to Snake Pit was much better for running. Went about a mile up Snake Pit and had great views of Beaver Dam Range. Only saw a few bikers on trail. Very hot day.. bring lots of liquids.

Did the full loop counter clockwise at Sunrise. Started at SE end of trail off access road coming up from one of the newer neighborhoods off Dixie. This trail offers great views of the area in all directions but does get harder to follow on the West - SW side going up through boulder fields before the descent. Lots of cairns to help mark the way in most cases. As already noted you also get an excellent look at the trail system in the valley to the South-SW. Giving it a 5 due to easy access and super views.

Short enough even on a hot day. Bring a flashlight/headlamp for the lava tubes. There are 2 which are 100's of feet long into the ground and out of day light. Our 7 year old was more than able to scramble in and the teen's loved it.

Th perfect hike or those with small children. Once you get to the amphitheater kids love exploring the rocks and playing in the sand. If you go in the summer the sand can get very hot so make sure to go earlier in the day so the kids can still play. So many cool places to take pictures.

Perfect if you have littles. Short, beautiful, and young kids love exploring the little slot canyon. Plus if you go in the summer, the little canyon is completely shaded so you get a little break from the sun.

Good hike with beautiful scenery. Really best if you add an out and back along Paradise Rim and Scout Cave Trail...some of the best scenery looking into Snow Canyon from that route.

Easy way to see a slot canyon if you don’t have time for a big trek. Can be in and out in 10 min!

Great adventure for families, and anyone wanting a short hike it’s a sun break. The lave tube were fun and nice cool break from the sun. We climbed down in them and the kids loved it.

Great ride to introduce my 8yr old to desert mountain biking. Very gradual climb all the way to the top with a few steep sections but manageable for him. Down hill was great with harder lines for the more experienced and easier lines for the for those him. Great time. Will hit it again.

Nice hike for a view of the city below. Only saw 3 other people on the entire trail. Perhaps it was because we went at the hottest part of the day. (Not the smartest idea.) Easy hike along the rim.

Quick hike to see the names after some longer hiking in the park. As someone else said, a bit steep in the area of the names. Quick, easy hike.

This hike gave us a lot of different scenery through the park. Petrified dunes was awesome however we lost the trail at one point because the markers are too far apart. Still an amazing hike

Beautiful trail with lots of sandstone to climb on. We started here and then headed toward Butterfly trail and got to experience so many different kinds of terrain from sand to volcano tubes there was not one bad place for a picture; just stunning.

Fun easy family hike. Great reward at end of reaching the cave. Awesome views.

The kids absolutely loved hiking around and playing in the sand. My senior parents were able to make the short trek with us, and sat watching the grandkids play. We will definitely be back!

We love this hike. It’s a regular for us. It’s beautiful. But it’s really popular so arrive early. We got in at 7:30 am and had the whole trail to ourselves. By the time we left the little parking lot was full.

I didn't go on any trails. Started at the North entrance and hiked through all the rocks and everything to the South entrance. Loved it.

We went left at the fork. Easy, short walk to the overlook. The white rocks are beautifully contrasted by the red rocks in the distance. Parts of the trail are a bit sandy.
