One of my personal favorites, it's a quick, but steep and tiring hike to Pretty Valley and the frozen cascades are gorgeous. We climbed to the top of the big rocks and looked over the valley. Beautiful stuff. Until then the trail is well packed. We tried continuing past the massive rocks but the deep snow and time shortage prevented us from continuing. Wish we could have continued though!

Spike Hiked up on New Year's day. snowshoes are not necessary. packed in Euro sleds to come down. this was a riot. sometimes the trail was too narrow, rocky or steep for the sleds, so we would pick them up and walk a bit. super fun day!

Wonderful winter hike. spikes are perfect right now. We saw a moose on Thursday.

One of the best snowshoe hikes in Provo Canyon. There was a ton of snow today. I wore my spikes, but wished I had snowshoes. I usually do this as a loop, turning left at the Big Springs sign, heading through a couple of meadows. I often see turkey up here.

Nothing short of amazing. I have done this hike four times this year but the winter brings a whole new beauty to this hike. Waterfall is mostly frozen. Beautiful take your camera.

Easy walk in the wash, lots to explore.

We went in January - lots of snow and ice. Found it a bit boring. Scenery in the park is epic but for 4 miles of this hike you are stuck down in a canyon. Two highlights were seeing a herd of deer and seeing a frozen waterfall. Otherwise, it was just drudging in snow. And one part was a hilariously icy scamper up rock cliff. Wouldn’t want to do that twice!

1/11/19 heavy ice on beginning of trailhead. do not attempt without crampons.

1/10/19 quick and easy. slight presence of ice near the waterfall.

1/10/17 great scenary for sunset. quick and easy. parking can be limited. would recommend due to ice on other trails at Zion.

This is a get your picture and leave type of hike. Compared to Corona and Bowtie, it was meh. The arch itself is awesome. The hike up is nothing special. At the top, you’re met with a whole bunch of people with little hiking ettiequte. People perched under the arch making it impossible to get a photo and groups of people talking and yelling.

An all around better option is Corona and Bowtie. The drive there is AWESOME! The hike is so freaking fun and the arch is just as spectacular.

You have to see Delicate arch when you come to Utah, but definitely don’t do this as your only arch hike!

Very, very beautiful hike. Flew in for the day just to do it in the snow for the first time and had a blast. Definitely challenging, but it's overall not super long and totally doable, as an experienced hiker at least. Came prepared with microspikes and hiking poles, left hiking poles towards the very top once it became slightly more scramble-like. Picked them up on the way down and called it a day at dusk! I will say it got very cold, very quickly once the sun went down so come prepared.

GREAT hike! Definitely need cramp-ons to do this safely right now. Absolutely stunning views, and not heavily trafficked at all. 10/10 would recommend.

Great views, no ice or snow! Short and family friendly!

Wow! (In Owen Wilson’s voice)
This trail was EPIC! Incredible views and 100% worth it! It was considered moderate for us. It took about 1 hour and 15 minutes to hike up and 40 minutes to go back down. It was a little Icy but nothing too crazy. Elevation gain was a little difficult at times, but doable. Definitely a must do! Unbelievable views at the arch!

It's a steep hike that offers really cool views of the Salt Lake Valley. Not one of my favourites as there's no waterfalls, rivers or lakes to look at. It is doable in winter and I enjoyed myself over all, but it is exhausting fighting all that snow and it delays you. Make sure you have more time than you think you need before sunset. It's dangerous with light-hearted sliding down the steep, slick trail.

The trail was snow packed and beautiful! It was easily doable without spikes or snowshoes! The gate was closed 1.5 miles out from the trailhead, but was a beautiful hike! Prepare yourself to have a towel and dry clothes when you get out of the springs!

13/Jan. Pretty views. Easy to see the trail. However, only 3/4 of the way has a trail, the rest will require some extra work. The snow is packed, even in hard to go places and the trail is wide enough to hike. Did not have snow pads, only winter boots and poles. Was sunny and no wind. Very silent. Many wild life trails. Enjoying hike!

Loved this hike. Views of the valley, tree's, tree's and more tree's then opening, then tree's then the gorgeous lake. Trail was packed down pretty well until the last half mile or so. Then snowshoes would be helpful but we didn't use them. A sled would have been helpful on the way down as well.

Really Fun trail, we did it in SXS’s in January and it was partially covered in snow.

Our Crew consisted of 2 RZR XP4 Turbo’s on 32” tires, 2 RZR XP 2 seat on 30’s and 28’s, and an RS-1

We didn’t bypass any obstacles, however we are very experienced, some sections an obstacles are challenging and you will scrape and drag bottom. Most everything has an easier bypass or line. There is a large drop ledge near midway that will test your nerves, highly recommend a strap on the back held from above if you’re not comfortable and experienced. Will do many times again.

Nice, relatively short hike close to town that gets you high enough for some good views of the Wasatch to the east and the Salt Lake Valley to the West. Trail conditions today where excellent. Not much ice, mostly packed snow and mud/dirt. Much of the climb is south-facing, so relatively free of snow or ice except for the start and the summit. Deep snow near the top, but the trail was well-packed. Didn't need yak tracks or snow shoes at all. I saw only 2 other people with their dog the whole hike. My two pups and I had the summit to ourselves. We weren't able to get completely above the inversion, but we got close. Blue skies to the east, haze to the west. Great hike for this time of year because the steady climb and constant sunshine (no shade along the trail and mostly south facing) kept us warm.

Fun Snowshoe! A bit of a grind / slog uphill, but well worth it!

I want to come back and see if anyone else has helped back down the trail in the upper canyon.

:-)

Short and easy yet stunning and beautiful. Delicate arch, probably the most famous of all the arches and understandably so.

Most of the trail was covered in hardened snow. We had microspikes which helped a lot. The ice was blown on the trees which was amazingly pretty. The view to the east woulda been better if there was no inversion. We did the loop in a clockwise direction. The south east side was pretty much mud. It was a nice trail to walk, with lots of views of the neighborhood below. No shady trees. There was shade only where the sun made the hills drop a shadow. I think lots of mountain bikers use this trail. Because there was snow on most of the trail, I think some fat bikers use it in the winter. We saw fat bike tracks, but no bikes today.

Such an awesome hike. Did it in two days one night, but spreading it out over another night would have been nice. Started in a Thursday morning and was back Friday evening. Saw other people out but we’re alone on the peak for most of the time we were up there. Starts out forested then opens into valleys with awesome views of the surrounding mountains, then over the pass and up to an epic peak.

This is a great little hike to an iconic arch in the Canyonlands experience. Parking is convenient but during the middle of the day the arch will be receiving many visitors as it is quite a tourist attraction. And if you're adventurous enough to rise early and catch the classic sunrise through the arch, you'll have plenty of photographers to keep you company. Happy hiking!

Did on Jan 3, 2019. One of the most awe-inspiring, beautiful, out-of-this-world hikes! Especially in winter with the snow dusting the rocks. Parked at the lot near sunrise point. Started at sunrise point, went down queens garden trail, continued onto Navajo loop (Wall Street portion was closed but took the other leg to get to sunset point, then walked along rim trail to get back to sunrise point. Did the hike in hiking boots— was a little icy/slippery especially at the tops of the trail near sunrise point and particularly sunset point, but hiking boot were fine. Wouldn’t really recommend doing it in street shoes during winter when it’s icy— lots of people slipping especially trying to go down the trail from sunset point (more heavily trafficked in that area so the ice was slicker)

Really neat. Easy hike. Beautiful views. Ancient History. According to the evidence, the Ancient Natives were riding dinosaurs. Check it out!

This is amazing! The bridge is massive! I could have spent all day exploring!

Steep, but not too difficult. I did not like how exposed the last mile was on the sheer cliff face, but I am afraid of steep cliffs.

A lot better than Angels Landing, because this is less crowded.

Absolutely great views, I would do it again.
