Petroglyph Pools to Slot Canyon ist ein 1.1 Meilen langer, wenig besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Springdale, Utah. Er führt entlang eines Flusses, vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt einen Wasserfall und oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als moderat einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und ein Ausflug in die Natur unternommen werden. Die Route ist am besten von März bis November zugänglich.

If you wonder how long those bighorn sheep have been in Zion, you need to see this petroglyph panel. The canyon beyond is a great hike typical of the East Zion canyons. The Park does not like to advertise these petroglyphs, so please be respectful. From the parking area (look for the "no bus parking" sign), look north; just into the canyon there is a sheer cliff. The petroglyphs are at its base. Head north, either along the road or down and under the impressive stone culvert. The petroglyphs are not visible from the wash bottom so watch for the trail cutting over to them. Beyond the petroglyphs, climb the slickrock to the right to continue up the canyon. There is a significant dryfall that is difficult to climb but easy to bypass to the right. Above this is the slot canyon. One dryfall has a convenient staircase next to it, but the next one usually has a pool and most people stop here. It can be bypassed by a ledge on the left side, but does not continue far beyond that.

Fun short hike. Amazing petroglyphs. 100 yards past the tunnel, 20 yards to the left of the stream bed. Two sets, near and far ends if cliff face. Nice canyon, amazing slick stone, views and scenery. Trail ends at the slot.

Beautiful petroglyphs and nice narrow canyon, you can keep going further but with adequate equipment. Worth it and easy hike up to the canyon.

Impressive Petroglyph's, The trail climbs up a steeply to the right of the glyphs and alternates between visible trail and slickrock up to the slot canyon. I saw only one cairn along the path.

Petroglyphs were cool. Nice quiet canyon. No one else was around despite the rest of the park being packed.

It’s just okay. The petroglyphs are pretty cool.... but not really a slot canyon imo.

Glyphs are about .1 miles in to the hike, on your left. Unmarked trail but very close! We ended up going right due to reading comments....made it to the slot canyon and were slightly disappointed because we didnt see the glyphs. We found them on our way back...they are awesome! The glyph portion is easy. The slot canyon is probably closer to moderate with a lot of rock scrambling.

The petroglyphs were cool. Didn’t do the whole thing.

It is easy to miss the petroglyphs if you stay in the wash. After going under the bridge, keep walking in the wash until you see a pine tree with it's roots going through the wash. Immediately look to your left and you will see a small trail of sand leading up to the canyon wall. That leads you to the petroglyphs.

The petroglyphs are really cool and very easily reached. Watch for the small trails that split out of the wash on the left within 100 yards of going under the bridge. The second trail seems to be the best to get right to the petroglyphs. Uphill from there, stay to the right to avoid putting yourself in a small "slot" that is seemingly impassable. Once you're above that spot, it's pretty wide open with lots to see and explore. Plenty of pools along the way (though they were quite stagnant when I visited).

fun short hike. We scrambled down the rocks to the dry stream bed. path was a mix of sand, rock. after going under the bridge, we noticed the path up to our left and took it part of the way. the petroglyphs were on the left protected by the fence. We continued on looking for the keyhole to the slot but it was covered by rocks and broken trees. there was no water in the area on June 14.

The “trail” was difficult to find. Once we did, the petroglyphs were awesome. After that, we went through a sticky mud lake up to our knees and still couldn’t find the trail to the slot canyon.

Wish AllTrails would have mentioned that this trail is IN Zion National Park. Wasted time driving there to find that it was in the park.

Highly recommend. Lots of goats also if you climb high on the left on the way up rather than right - what the maps shows.

Nice hike. Look for petroglyphs on left as you walk up the stream bed after emerging from the tunnel under the road. There’s a split rail fence protecting them. Keep hiking up the stream and take the high path on the right to find a keyhole entrance to the slot canyon. Beautiful icicles today (March 15). Ice on rocks underfoot, be careful.

This was an absolutely STUNNING trail. To start, the tunnel is beautiful and in the winter the sound of the cracking ice beneath your feet is a symphony. After passing through the tunnel follow the trail to the Petroglyphs and BEHOLD. The sheer age and beauty of the 7000 year old artwork really captures your mind and soul to existential peaks. Once you come back down to reality after a few deep breaths, get ready...Then scramble a tid-bit and hike up to the Slot Canyon and try to hold on to your spirit. It is very humbling how these rocks seem to coexist so peacefully, yet at the same time you can see the war they have been waging on each for billions of years grinding into each other with such slow and steady force and harmony. It really is a MUST!!! A TRUE HIDDEN GEM (Bring pasta salad to enjoy with someone and it makes it 100X better)

This trail is a bit of the beaten path. It begins in a small parking area off of the highway and curves under the tunnel. Quickly you will see some 7000 year old petroglyphs on the rock wall. In the winter you will see a frozen lake and waterfall. You can climb up and around the waterfall area on the right which will require a little bit of scrambling. It is well worth it though, if you continue you will see many pools of water that connect with a small stream (depending on the time of year). Follow the creek until you reach a hidden slot canyon and this is where the real fun begins. This is kind of a choose your own adventure at this point. Explore the slot canyon for as long as you feel comfortable and then turn back around. Truly spectacular in the winter with all the icicles, but be careful.
