I snowshoe and hike this trail all year long...it’s usually pretty crowded and sometimes tough for mountain bikes to squeeze past the hikers. That said, I love the location, the ease of parking and getting right on the trail and the scenery. Elephant Rock isn’t the best reward after a long hike but it’s a great workout.

The views are amazing ! Well worth it.

Easy hike , beautiful when we went, three waterfalls overhead so amazing

easy trail for sunday afternoon, bring your dogs 3 waste bags stations, no reason to leave anything behind

Fantastic trail! This was one of the highlights of our trip to Arches.

Definitely do the entire loop if possible. We actually found the primitive trail portion to be easier than the main trail because there was less time on the windy, exposed high rocks — also, the primitive trail is very well marked with cairns, so if you keep an eye out for those you won’t get lost.

Fantastic hike! I would call it moderate. Be careful not to lose the trail at the end or you’ll end up walking on a somewhat treacherous path around the arch itself (which we accidentally did.)

We were there earlier this week and loved this hike! It is definitely challenging but worth it. No ice when we went but the rocks were slick. My 12 and 14 year old boys loved it. Definitely hit this trail first as it gets busy! We went around 8:30 and it was fine...a little cold but bearable. We also hit Double Arch, Windows and Balanced Rock. Those were our favorites. Drove by Fiery Furnace overlook(very cool) but cant hike that without a pass..looks pretty scary too!

A beautiful and magical hike when there's several feet of snow and even more falling. Nothing too strenuous, but it's not noted that you have to park right of the highway and hike roughly an additional .5 mile to get to the trailhead. The snow was hard packed enough that hiking boots were sufficient, though many people had snowshoes. The little climb to get to the cave where the falls are was a bit slick without any kind of spikes, but still doable.

My first off road experience in my stock Jeep Wrangler JL unlimited. There’s some little sand dunes off to your left off the main trail - make sure you go do them!

Epic hike! Make sure you follow the cairns - they’re tricky to spot at times. Also the secondary trail on here leads to some fun swimming holes - my dogs had a blast swimming in them before hiking in the sun.

I did this hike with my boyfriend a couple days ago. We started at Angels Landing and ended at campsite 8 in Telephone Canyon. It is approximately 17 miles round trip. There is a lot of ascending on the way there, it took us approximately 5 and half hours to get to our camp. Campsite 8 was a haul, but offered good protection from the wind and was close to the water source. The trip back was mostly down hill and we knocked it out in a little over 3 hours. Beautiful views from start to finish! The trip out was difficult with the extra weight on my back. Be sure to pack enough water.

Love this little hike

Easy trail almost 1.5 miles. The only challenge are the steps other than that.... beautiful scenery!

One of my favorite trails. If you are new to mountain biking take a deep breath. There are some intense spots but so worth it!

Just stunning. Not too bad snow wise but there was a storm coming in after we left so it might’ve all changed. A must do if you’re in Bryce.

Hike up and back is very easy. Trail is marked well. Scenery is incredible and it was worth going down into the canyon to see it up close. Very snowy day so there were very few people around. I think we saw one other group hiking.

The wind was bitter at Dog Lake, but snowshoeing in and out was great. There was enough fresh snow to warrant snowshoes, and few enough people to make you feel isolated.

I actually liked the view here better than Angels Landing. And it wasn’t as crowded.

Went with a group of 10 youth and 4 adults. We went up Ding and down Dang. Going up Ding and down Dang is definitely the easier way to go. Dan has several sections where going up would be much more difficult. This was a great hike and everyone had a good time.

As of 17 Mar 18, there is water at the bottom of Dang. You can brace your self and scoot along the narrow sections if you have the strength and agility to do it. There is one area about 10 feet in diameter that you will be wading in about knee deep water. The narrow sections the water was about waist deep. The section with water is about 100 yards long.

Step in sections that can be tricky on the descent. Great views! Good aerobic workout! Recommend this trail.

More popular for mountain bikers to do the loop. Initial assent to the wall offers great views. I recommend hiking in and back (about half the total distance). Would rate hike as moderate - not hard.

Super short trail but mostly upward. Some drop offs on the side but only once or twice. Great place to watch the sunset but get there early for a good spot if you plan on takin g pictures. Would definitely do again.

I’d imagine this hike is a lot prettier in the summer with more vegetation. The trail up is pretty and you get to see the falls that come from the pools above (falls isn’t the right word its more line streams that run off the side of the rocks). I’m definitely glad I did it but on my next visit I plan on choosing new hikes to explore instead of this one.

Trail is easy to get to a flat. I would recommend going early in the morning. It was quiet and serine walking through the water and having the canyon walls shooting up around us. Despite going the first week of March after we had turned around to head back around 10:30 there were numerous louder groups coming through so we were glad we had gone earlier.

Great hike—challenging with a great sense of accomplishment at the end. Please be patient when going on narrow areas; if it’s narrow and some people are descending, don’t just start your ascent and then make it difficult for people to pass. Just be patient, because this trail can be dangerous.

Recommend going early, just as sun rises. Fewer people on the trail and the worst part about this is the number of people there that make it difficult to do the hike.

Awesome views. Don’t go In the heat as there is no shade! We went when it was overcast and it was perfect

I walk this path for the small river fly fishing. Tons of river access all along the path.

Went up to maple lake and camped the night there. The snow up there is untouched and we were probly the first people since November to be up that high. Beautiful this time of year. Had to start from the mouth of maple canyon though and the one journey took us about 7 hours. 12+ inched of powder once you get above 6,000 ft
