Great short distance hike. Parking is to the left after crossing RR tracks. Falls are easily accessible and close to the parking area. This trail is clearly marked with red Nature Conservancy markers.

A good workout. Very nice views.

Nice little workout to the summit. If I did it again I wouldn’t do the loop, just out and back to the false summit for some decent views.

Well maintained trail, enjoyable, beautiful hike. Great Lake to stop and eat lunch, and watch deer and otters. It is a steep grade, little to no level areas, so it makes for a nice work out to get the blood pumping.

Great hike! There is a great waterfall two miles prior to the end of the trail indicated on this map. Beautiful trail, bring bug spray for the first section. If you don't mind nats, then you will be ok. Hint to find the waterfall marked on this hike, after you go over the second small bridge, pay attention, to find a split in the trail to the left, that will take you to the small fall that is the end of this trail. You could continue on the main trail all the way to Sugar Pine. Also, if you want to see the big fall and don't want to do a 6 mile hike, drive up 41 to the trail head that is a paved pull out, well marked on the left hand side. We drove up and checked it out after we did the hike, because we saw it on on our way out.

great view, kids and dog friendly, the lake is an amazing meditation place

Wonderful hike to the top with my 8and 4 year old children 6/4/16. Great views of the water falls!!

Did this one today. Road says closed because of recent rains but it didn’t seem to stop anyone. You will need AWD to make it back though all the sand to get to the parking. Lots of ladders, bouldering, and scrambles, beautiful views from the top. SLOT CANYON, so much fun, and beautiful.

one of my favorite trails, extra points if you make it muddy, challenge yourself. get a stick will help a lot.

Just do the bottom half of the trail.

Too hard and far to drive to there.

Nice views and perfect weather. Steep, last 50 yards to true summit has high exposure.

Great short hike! There’s still some ice closer to the top so spikes are recommended. Spouting Rock was great little spur from the main trail but well worth it.

A spectacular 8.5 mile loop trail, generally well shaded, around an alpine lake. Parking is available on Mormon Emigrant Trail for a $5 self-pay day use fee. If you park inside the park (entry is just east of the cut off for Emigrant Trail), the day use fee is $13, but you can get a park / trail map at the entry station. The trail is decently marked at most places. A couple parts of the loop, especially down by the dam, force you onto roads where you’re competing with cars. Lake levels are down a bit, which lets you trim a mile or so off of the full distance at the upstream end of the lake if you stray from the trail a bit and brave some mud flats. We’ll be back: this one’s going on the regular rotation.

Went there today... hiked passed the springs to 4 mile marker and back... the springs are wonderful..parts of old rocks houses...

Great hike, the rock scramble by the waterfall is terrible. Once you get through it evens out a lot and is so much better.

On the way down you can crab walk or butt scoot next to the waterfall for the first portion. Its a little dangerous and I only recommend it for advanced hikers. You get down a lot faster and its so much more fun than the rock scramble. Be safe and watch out for smooth granite. This hike is great and is really pretty. Goodluck and have fun!

Great hike, serene setting and landscape.

Always a great hike. Got there at 6:30am and got the last parking space. Go during the week if you have that option. It was a great day on top, no wind and sunny. Lots and lots of dogs today but they were all well behaved.

False summit view is incredible on a clear day, but the view from the top is terrible. This is my least favorite hike in the Gorge.

Flat Rock Trail is an absolutely wonderful trail but it needs to be marked. I believe next time I do this trail I will not have to look at my AllTrails map. I highly recommend this trial if in the area. I was at all by the wildlife I ran across to bedded down deer

Amazing hike.

Amazing bucket list hike! Did this hike in 9 hours on Nov 17, taking lots of photo and snack breaks. Views were breathtaking. Temperatures were good, stayed cool all day. Personally I loved the South Kaibab trail because there were less rocks (soft dirt makes it easier to hike down), less people, and more views from hiking on a ridge. Bright Angel was a great trail, but so crowded, rockier, and the switchbacks over the last 3 miles were difficult. I would definitely do it again though!

I did this hike on Nov 16th, and chose a day that the weather would be pleasant. I recommend bringing sunglasses or a hat because the trail goes southeast the whole way and the sun was right in our eyes. It was a beautiful day, icy but sunny. It was pretty slick on the way down with the hard packed snow, so be sure to have good treads on your boots. If you are with amateurs like I was, I would definitely go early in the day. It will take over 4 hours to go down and back, especially if you want to sit for a while and enjoy the sunshine on the smooth cool-looking rocks up top, overlooking the lake. Once we were out of the sun, it was quite cold so gloves and a hat were nice. We went later in the season, so we only met a couple other hikers along the way. We did come across some deer up close, darting across the trail.

Trail was not marked and was pretty much non existent. We hiked for 2 miles and was not able to follow any kind of trail or find the waterfalls. We turned back because we were running out of light. I wouldn't recommend trying this trail unless you had a lot of time and don't mind walking through moderate brush on steep terrain.

Just walked passed this section today Nov 17 2018 and it is closed due to rock fall. You can keep going to the observation point thou.

good short hike with a nice waterfall. good for toddlers and dogs.
