Very good trail, easy. But I well tell you it is down most the way which was great , but on way back up I was exhausted.

Great hike to take the kids on this morning!

Good hike with great views

Easy trail to access

Good trail that has heavy traffic

Very scenic views of the narrow Virgin River Canyon from high speeds on Interstate 15. We passed through on our way from Zion to Las Vegas.

We started on the east end by parking by the Gustave A Larson Company. No trailhead marker so you just have to piece your way up the hill. After crossing over a wire fence there will be trail markers. Very easy/flat trail. Full sun.

My wife & I wanted to take a hike close to the hotel. It was getting dark when we started & it worked out perfect for a short but scenic hike/walk.

My son and I did this trail and we had a blast , going to go go back with the rest of my kids.

The view was amazing driving from Zion to Las Vegas the only thing I would warn about is thinking that scenic view means ability to get out and take pictures or even drive slow.... The people around me were driving so fast and there was no way to stop and take a picture but it is beautiful and breathtaking

Scenic Drive through a narrow, winding canyon between St. George, UT and Mesquite, NV.

Very scenic drive thru a narrow canyon

On the way from Vegas to Zion, with a stop in St. George.

I started in St. George going southwest toward Littlefield, Arizona. This section is just desert country, but after you cross the state line, it's not far to the Virgin River canyon. A short section of the Interstate is a bridge that goes above the Virgin River. (both north and south bound)

Being from the east, we don't have a jaded view of the desert, rocks, hills, mountains and passes that comprise a route like this. We've done it twice, once from Las Vegas to Zion NP, and once from Zion to the Virgin River Casino - a scenic oddity and treat in itself, being part of a large manmade golf oasis in the middle of the desert. Be careful of some crosswinds, and of tandem rig drivers - unless you're used to being next to one in a hilly, curvy pass. Otherwise, a really nice drive.
