Best ever hike. We almost turned back when reaching one of the waterfall, but at the end we made it :-) (with 8 & 10 years old).

Jolie balade dans difficulté. Comptez une heure A/R. Quelques passages un peu glissants sur quelques slickrocks (il pleuvait un peu) mais rien de méchant. Peu de monde sur le parcours. Très beaux paysages.

Lovely hike that's not too strenuous and not too easy. As usual the heat is a major factor.

We intended to do the loop clockwise but took a turn right and did it anticlockwise. Probably best to follow the trail on phone.

We didn't see or meet anyone until the very end. Great views.

Short but sweet hike and wow! Evolving views all the way to the end. The bridge is impressive as are the rest of the geological features. We arrived early enough to avoid the heat and were happy for it. Not many on the trail by 8am.

So much fun for both young and old! If you don’t want to of can do the whole hike, start at the VC and work your way back to the third waterfall. From there you can determine if you want to go a little further. VC has a detailed map.

Beautiful hike!! We pretty much had the lake to ourselves. We had four wheel drive and were able to drive to the trail head. From there it is only 1.5 miles to the lake.

The bridge is amazing. The rocks along the trail are also featured.

I hiked this trail in the morning alone. The shadow made the scene be kind if mysterious. Great experience!

Lovely even on a hot day...

Fantastic hike through Cohab Canyon. Great views over Fruita valley from the beginning, and of course from the lookout points. Fun spots to scramble on or sit in the shade. Not too crowded. Favorite hike in Capitol Reef NP.

I strongly recommend this hike. Like, strongly. Gorgeous views the entire hike without the crowds! We went early (around 9am) and we were glad we did because it definitely got hot towards the end. Total hike took us 2 hours with some stopping to take pics, gaze at the scenery, and have a snack. Well worth it trail in beautiful capitol reef.

Excellent trail with fantastic sights. Small parking lot but not too busy. Bathroom at trailhead. Barely any cover so go when it’s cooler and bring lots of water. Should take around under two hours.

Stunning and not that hard. A great place to sit and rest and enjoy the views midway through - good picnic spot.

Hiked this two summers ago. We parked one car at the visitors center for when we were done to ferry us back to our starting point at Chimney Rock. Once we reached the Sulphur stream , we walked the entire remaining hike in the river . There is a large tree at about the halfway point that makes for a great lunch stop. We did it with a 3 yr old and she walked all but the last mile or so. Beautiful !

Great for kids. An easy hike with a fun bouldering trek to the tanks. Follow the stacked rocks and it wasn’t hard to find them. We went in July 2018 - not crowded at all. I recommend going in the morning if you’re here during the summer as there isn’t a lot of shade.

Left at 1800 and finished ~ 2000, stopping often to take photos. The initial climb was challenging, but after that it was relatively easy. Amazing scenery. Would recommend trekking poles.

Hiked it in the evening. Tried to catch sunset but a cloud moved in

I reccomend doing the loop. Its a moderate hike, but if you are already fatigued can feel like an eternity getting up to the bride. Someone left a toy buddy on a rock, gave me quite a laugh.

A short scenic drive, nice to be able to see some of the viewpoints if you are unable to hike the trails.

Pleasant walk, but I didn't find it all that interesting. Would probably be great as a family stroll thru Fruita

Wonderful. The climb at the start of the hike really got the blood pumping

Loved it! So refreshing.

Great for a night hike!

Sadly no water in the tanks in early June 2018.

It was a fun trail! Sunny so best to do when it’s cooler.

No water at the top of the tanks, and I couldn’t tell how much longer the trail went after that on the map :( but it was a nice break from driving ! You’ll need a 4x4 car to get there, and if there are clouds in the sky check the weather for possible flooding in the area. Clearly that wasn’t an issue for us since the trail was fairly dry

This is a great place to watch the colors change over the canyon and see the colors come to life at sunset. Make sure you walk around Panorama Point first and then drive up to Sunset Point. The hike out is leisurely, but it does get crowded. The best time is to be there an hour before sunset and make sure you stay until it actually gets dark. If there are clouds, the sky will illuminate once the sun has moved out of sight. Bring a trail chair, water, and a snack for a great end to the day.
