This is a good starter hike for Zion to get you in the mood for the bigger main attractions. The switchbacks are no fun but good views. There are chains on the trail that one her reviews lead me to believe were good to get you ready for Angels Landing.....don't be fooled into thinking they are similar other than they... More

We inadvertently hiked this trail today (we were not paying attention to the signage) and thought that the ambitious vertical climb along narrow trails and icy switchbacks were worth the sweat we all worked up. We had chains on our boots and definitely found these made our trip much easier. There are portions of this trail in which you use... More

This hike is less popular than Angel's Landing, Observation Point, and the Narrows but is still a fun and challenging hike. We were there on a cold, wet, and snowy day, so we had the trail practically to ourselves. Be sure to continue back into the canyon all the way to the natural arch...we almost missed it (just a few... More

This is a real exciting but surprising trail to hike as it has easy parts but also strenuous uphill hiking and parts with chains along the side. You should take your time to explore this hike and enjoy the scenery. It is well worth to walk the hidden canyon trail even on a cloudy day, when it is warm you... More

Do this first to get a bit of a tase of the route to Angels Landing. Modest exposure with some chains and strenuous uphill climb. Do explore past the end of the trail to a cool arch deeper in the canyon. Great picnic rock in the sun right at end of maintained trail.

My husband and I completed this in 2 hours and took the time to enjoy the view. We are 60 years old and in fairly good physical shape. Not for anyone with bad knees. This is considered a moderate hike, there are chains to hold to in places. A highlight of our first trip to Zion.

Yes wow, this is a must hike if you visit Zion. Catch the shuttle (in season) to the weeping rock stop and get walking. The first part is the steepest (honestly) but you will ultimately be rewarded with some stunning vistas and amazing walk ways! Use the chains, keep firm footed and the valley will soon appear. When you get... More

This was one of the best hikes we've ever done. The way up is tiring. It so worth the views. Keep going past where the trail ends. It's really fun and beautiful inside the Canyon. You'll regret not taking yourself as far as you can go!

On a two day stay at Zion Nat. Park my wife, sister, and I had intended to hike the Narrows the following morning but unfortunately there'd been rain to the north the evening before making the Narrows too dangerous. There was a sign posted at the trail-head stating there was rapidly rising water and the trail was closed. A friendly... More
