My wife and I went on our first backpacking trip to Wall Lake. She is a few months pregnant and the trail was easy for her with a few breaks here and there.

Great trail, look forward to doing it again next month.

I absolutely loved this trail. It’s definitely not an easy hike as you gain over 1,000ft in elevation each mile but it is so worth the effort. You will hike beside a river speckled with waterfalls, through aspen groves, and into gorgeous meadows.
My GPS tracker a little over 6.5 miles rt but I did some exploring at the top.
Keep your eye out for moose. I saw a few as well as a few groups of deer.
I got on the trail by 7am and had zero issues with sun or temperature as more than the majority of the hike was covered by shade. I hiked on a Tuesday and only saw one other hiker on the trail. Had the final meadow to myself for over an hour. Complete solitude.
I can’t wait to come back in the fall when the aspens are changing.

Decided to go for a hike as it was my first full day in Utah. Just know there are three parking lots that all lead to these falls so remember the way you went up/need to go down- I spent 30 minutes walking around trying to find my car. The hike up was beautiful, difficult at times and flat at times. At the end, the last .7 miles are extremely tough but then you’re rewarded with the waterfall. Highly recommend.

This trail will test you from the get go and does so all the way to Deer Lake. From Deer Lake it's pretty easy going to Farmers Lake. Stayed my final night at White Miller Lake. Damn good campsite there!

LOVED this hike. Took about 2.5 hours round trip and it was so worth it.

Crowded but epic

Love this trail! The views are AMAZING!

This is a great trail. I highly recommend doing it. We hit the trail by 7:45 and completed it in just under five hours and we took our time. The trail is well marked but you have to pay attention for the cairns. I think the route is better if you go clockwise.

The route up is an access road so it’s rocky, wide, and very exposed to the sun. The lake itself is nice. There are very limited tent sites if you’re planning on staying the night.

This is an excellent trail. Moderate is the right grading as the start is reasonably energetic but by no means strenuous in our view. We are a family, reasonably fit but nothing exceptional with 15 and 12 year old boys. The views are fantastic, the photo opportunities along the way plentiful and incredible. There is a lovely canyon portion in the middle which is shaded. The top section is easy going until observation point which is a good place to take in the elevated view and replenish reserves for the trip down. We started at 08:15, took many photos on the way up and stayed at the top for 20 minutes or so. We were back at the start by 12:15. We did not rush at any point.

It’s a beautiful overlook. Steeper than you think but short. There’s street parking at the trailhead.

I've done this twice this week and loved it both times. Hiked up the south side and ran down the north side of the loop. The run was through the trees in soft, powdery dirt. So much fun! Make sure to cut into the trees when the full downhill starts, otherwise you'll miss the powder and will be stuck on a rocky downhill.

We ended up picking a really hot day to do this one and it was a little miserable at parts; I'd like to come back on a cooler day, probably it'd get a better rating after that. Looking at other reviews, I guess we didn't make it past the first stage of the hike, but we were looking for something wheelchair accessible so we might not have been able to enjoy the nicer parts anyway. We did see some wildlife--birds and butterflies, mostly. Pretty high traffic, there were even cars driving on the trail.

did this hike yesterday. very enjoyable not difficult at all. walk through the creek a little so prepare for that. great view from the top.

Great trail and at the top there’s a pond. Early in the morning, sometimes, there is a moose in the pond.

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.

While rated at ‘Easy’, some areas are a more moderate level. This is especially true for small children and old folks - like me. I loved the scenery! If you bring a dog, you may need to carry it in some spots if it’s a small dog.

Fun hike! Was fairly easy with a beautiful payoff at the end. So many lakes that can be seen!

It had been 25 or so years since I'd been up this side, and I'd also forgotten how much easier it is in comparison to the Aspen Grove Trail head. I just love the long climbing switchbacks across the terraces, and how the views in both directions are changing continually throughout the hike. Between the two and three mile marks (approximately) there is also excellent opportunity to see plentiful sea life fossils, if you know what you're looking for. Water sources become more and more limited as the season draws out, so be aware, carry plenty and consider a filter. This mountain is so amazingly majestic, and never disappoints, at least in my opinion. Even if you only plan to hike to the basin, this is one of the easier places to always spot Mountain Goats, which is always entertaining. Excellent hike, I need to knock this one out again before the season is finished!

Great hike, a lot of fun going from lake to lake. Entire family really enjoyed this trail. And the scenery is amazing!

It was a great trail for my kids and us to walk. Did explore a lot around the lake and a ton of rocky areas my kids climbed the afternoon away.

Awesome hike. Great views and enough of a challenge to keep the heart rate up. Hiked up at a pretty good pace (but stopped to take pics a few times) and took about 50 mins to get to the falls. Ran back down at a moderately fast pace and it took a little less than half the time it took to get up. Map estimate of distance is right on - my gps said 4.45 miles for the out and back.

I grew up hiking this peak with my grandpa because it is close to Delta where I grew up. It is a fun, pretty hike and there are two different trailheads to choose from. Typically, we would begin at the southern trailhead in Oak City Canyon. The northern trailhead can be accessed near the town of Fool Creek. Both trails meet at the top of the saddle. From the saddle, you ascend through the trees and up to the top of the peak where you will find a steep drop-off. I took my husband last September. We had a great time. There were a couple of spots where the trail is difficult to find & we had to forge our own trail a little bit. Fortunately, there are several places where people have left stacks of rocks to mark the trail, so be on the lookout for those. There was a severe fire in the area that left many of the trees burned. When we hiked in September 2017, there was a lot of fog which made the dead trees appear eerie and ethereal. The most difficult portion of the hike is the steep switchbacks at the end.

beautiful lake, beautiful trail. it is steep and quitr demanding. I was breaking in a new backpacking pack and had a lot of unnecessary weight, so that was a huge factor. I think that if I'd done it with half the weight, it wouldn't have felt so hard. we were stopped by a big bull moose on the trail, and the trail is popular enough our group went from two to almost twenty whole we waited for him to move away. he took his sweet time and we sat around for about 20 to 30 minutes. :) i

It was a good trail and a great workout. I definitely recommend it, but not for kids under 12. we saw lots of kids who pooped out before the end (or less than a mile into the trail) and were riding piggy back. Also, bring plentu of water. it is shaded in the morning, but it was hot with minimal shade in the afternoon. It's "hard" for a reason. don't punish your kids or yourself.

nice little hike after work

Fantastic view of a Canyon
Same view than Antelope and nobody on the pictures !

The view is amazing. Anyone that says differently is taking it for granted. Bring lots of water because it gets hot and it’s uphill the whole way up. Make reservations ahead of time and bring a jacket for the caves because it can get fairly cold inside the caves. Loved it!!

Great hike this time of year, be aware THE LAKE HAS NOT BEEN DRAINED. The water levels can get low this time of year especially with dry conditions, but Red Pine and White Pine do have water in them.

While the trail to get there is uneventful, the view at the end is ridiculously awesome. The trail is exposed, but barely any incline.
