spectacular!

This hike was a beautiful surprise to explore. The caves were a marvelous find as well, which are along the hike to the top of the falls. My teenagers loved this hike. We’ve visited many caves in the past all over USA and it is always “ look but don’t touch”. These were completely touch, climb and explore the many rooms. Bummed that we didn’t bring head lamps to get a better view of the roofs of the caves.

Very busy, scenery is nice. Expect waiting for shuttle back. Iconic sight Zion NP.

Took the dog and had a great hike. Had to move aside for a few mountain bikers, but the path was well maintained and easy to navigate. Would definitely recommend!

Amazing views of salt lake city

great hike, people are balancing rocks which is annoying, but a good hike even with little kids

Beautiful day and scenery!!! The hike up is an incline, just be prepared and have water!!! :)

there is a small cemetery at the start of a trail head just behind the welcome center . very well maintained and very clean hiking trail. just beautiful.

Small walk to sign off bucket list. Looks like ants walking up and down. Horrible parking, chaos.

I'm not going to beat a dead horse here but for those of you that are not in shape are overweight and don't do a lot of hiking this is not the hike for you because I'm the poster boy for those three categories and it kicked my rear end today. I'm 5 6 230 lb and I'm an equipment operator and lazy so I don't get much exercise at all. it killed me on the way up just saying

easy hike, go in morning to avoid the heat and bring 2 liters water

The perfect escape from the city! It was 90° today but we could take refuge in the abundant shade and water so it worked well! I recommend coming out on a weekday to avoid the traffic. We will be back for sure!

great hike. ....☺

stunning views, but it's not really a trail. it's a paved walk around the edge of the canyon hence why I have only rated it three stars.

Lots of frequent elevation change (600 ft is a net change), very poorly marked trail with markers only at trailhead or when it crossed a campground. There were no trail markers or distance markers, lots of lose rock and frequent forks to lose you way and your footing. On the plus side, some fantastic views and scenery along the way, just watch the transition from West Lake trail to East Lake trail. You have to find it yourself.

Like everyone else has said it looks very underwhelming at first but once you get to the formations it's definitely a cool place to see. The park is small and it's more walking then hiking. Nice place to stop for a couple hours.

Did this one in August 2015. Brutally hot weather, but otherwise great hiking conditions.

The hike up to "base camp" was spectacular - beautifully maintained trails, pleasant elevation gain, and uninterrupted views of the canyon. I would recommend that first leg of the hike to most anybody.

The actual Angel's Landing climb is a completely different beast. Between the heat, the treacherous drop-offs, and the altitude, it was an intense hour or so. The view from the point, though, is fantastic - panoramic views of the canyon and its technicolored rock walls complimented by a dozen or so California Condors circling overhead.

A very memorable experience, and a worthy member of the hiker's hall of fame.

short and fun for kids

Bucket list river hike into the narrows. Walking stick recommended, can rent them just outside park. Fun, wet + beautiful.

This is a fairly easy walk down to the bend. The view is awesome. You can walk right up to the edge and look down. Make sure you keep an eye on those little ones. Its a bit scary because there is nothing holding you back. Worth the hike. Bring water with you.

Is this open yet? I am surprised to see comments from people even this week

I gave this trail five stars because of the giant petrified Redwood tree stumps, not necessarily for views and terrain. The petrified stumps are awe inspiring. I had no idea there was anything like this here in CO...and I am a native!

I enjoyed this trail a lot. Very diverse terrain and pretty throughout. My dog loves creeks so the spring was a plus for us.

Crowded but epic

It’s a beautiful overlook. Steeper than you think but short. There’s street parking at the trailhead.

Sooooo many people....

Best arch in the national park! And the hike wasn’t as hard as some may say. Just make sure you start early enough to beat the heat and avoid crowds. We started at 7 am and that was the perfect time. I wouldn’t recommend starting this hike midday; it should honestly be closed around 11 am - 4 pm because that heat can be dangerous!

Completed over two days but hits most of the high points and you get a pretty good appreciation with this drive. Obviously you’d wanna do the longer hikes (devils garden) early on in the morning but you also wanna do the shorter ones early to avoid the crazy crowds because of how accessible those ones are so you have to decide

Fun trail with three distinct sections. Just be careful, sign at trailhead lists it as “1.5....one way.” Quickly read it and assumed it was mileage for out and back (like normal...). Was in for a slightly longer trip than planned. Lots of groups complaining about water very early on and resting in any shade they could find. Also lots of little kids with no water and barely any clothing/protection. Plan appropriately, it’s lots of sun and decent climbing for families.
