Very neat hike, beautiful views the whole time!

Fantastic dog friendly trail.

BUT - why do people let their dogs off leash and leave filled poop bags on the trail?

Easy trail. Frozen waterfall.

A classic. If your expectations aren't too high, then it's worth it!

It's awesome! Not really a hike, but great views

Decently easy trail, but wouldn't recommend cars/crossovers take this. Helped a gentleman with a popped tire in his Lexus CUV. Has quite a bit of sharp rock areas and a few washed out dips but anything with ground clearance and decent sidewalls can make it. The falls are really pretty. Camping spots not far from falls, but it does get windy at night.

Snagged a wilderness permit and we did the 16 miles down... sleeping overnight at campsite 10. Was amazing!!

Boring. Easy.

We purchased this app and were so glad to have its GPS for the start of the hike, between slots of Peekaboo and Spooky, and for getting back to main trail after Dry Fork. Footprints/trails criss-cross all over the place between slots. I echo last two reviewer's advice. Wonderful time for our family; the youngest, age 6, ate it up.

Busy but worth it! Stay hydrated ok

I did this hike in August because Angels Landing was closed. It’s a steady climb of switchbacks with spectacular views. Midway is a slot canyon with shade and a nice stop for photos before continuing to the summit. The temperature was reaching the 90s. Take 2-3 liters of water and snacks. I arrived at the summit at lunch and it was very crowded. I found a relaxing spot to enjoy the views over Angels Landing and watch the tourists taking pics and face timing friends. Round trip was aprox 4 hours. Fantastic hike!

We enjoyed this trail. Wonderful view at the end and a distant petroglyph in the middle.

Great hike!! Did this hike a couple days ago and the weather was perfect! Started right before 8 am and finished right under 4 hours. Spent about 20 min at the top. Was only 2 other people up there. Amazing views! Glad we did the hike when we did before it warmed up. The second set of switchbacks was tougher than the first. As soon as we finished this hike we went and did Angels Landing. I thought this hike was better and is def my favorite in the park!

Awesome hiking take good hiking shoes and water.

Cool and nice. Water is very urgent and fast. Fell down a couple times.

Great hike, well maintained. Bring plenty of water as this is strenuous. I am scared of heights, but the trail is sturdy so I did not have any difficulties with the drop offs at points. Bring a pair of hiking poles!!!!

Nice to see! We made this a pit stop on our drive from Flagstaff to Zion. We had a 10:30 am antelope canyon tour so stopped by here before. It was cool to see but not the best lighting yet at 8:30 in the morning. It’s a quick pit stop. Spent about 35 min here. Came back after our tour finished at noon because we weren’t in a hurry to get to Zion. Lighting was much better. Would recommend to see if you’re in the area. Not something I would go out of my way for though.

Amazing hike. Bring lots of water. Views going up and at the summit are spectacular. Strenuous with the switchbacks but absolutely worth it!!!!

Nice relaxing hike to the falls. Stayed cool the entire time, falls were beautiful. Not as pretty now that all the leaves have fallen from the trees.

Another incredible hike in Zion. The hike has significant elevation gain virtually all the way to the viewpoint. There’s no shortage of awe inspiring views the entire trip. My only tip, is from the view point, follow the cliff line clock wise for a bit. The views are just as impressive looking down the canyon at the Temple of Sinawava but there’s no one there.

This was a nice trail. It was colder so there weren’t many people at all. It goes over a wash and up to a fork where you can see a waterfall (no waterfall right now) and the mossy cave. The cave is certainly mossy and there’s an info sign that says it’s covered in icicles in the winter. The trailhead is fairly easy to find. Go east on 12 and around one of the bends is a parking area with a sign and a little shack.

This trail was amazing! The Queen Victoria formation really looks like Queen Victoria. You have a choice of going up the Two Bridges trail or the Wall Street trail to finish the loop. I did Two Bridges. Wall Street is the “slot canyon.” I saw a Steller’s Jay and a chipmunk.

Great pics with mid day sun.
Traffic jam in spooky at the choke stones.
Perfect weather!

Great easy hike for the family.
Deer In the valley and fish in the creek!
Great color on the walls with the afternoon sun.

Hiked on 11/3/18. This was an amazing trail that was 6.5 miles according to my girlfriend’s Garmin watch. It took us right under 3 hours while taking breaks at the nature guide spots. (Nature guide is found in brown sign in box 10/10 recommended picking one up as it points out many cool things). This hike was beautiful the entire way and had to stop many times just to take in the view. It was a very comfortable hike -warm in the sun, cool and refreshing in the shade (which there was a lot of). This all sand trail was easy to walk and came to a beautiful waterfall. Walk to the far right side of the waterfall to gaze at the hanging gardens, if you look closely you can see where the water is seeping from the rocks/ hanging gardens.

While in this region we combined Devils Garden (down Hole in the Rock Road - just drive down the road and can explore Devils Garden for as long as you want - we took 30 minutes there), and Grosvenor Arch (in Cannonville which is on the way to Calf Creek if coming from Kanab. Took 30 minutes to drive to off of the main road and 25 to explore - you can drive up to it)

Incredible and otherworldly hike.

I would recommend bringing climbing rope for the 20ft. climb into Peekaboo—close to the top, there was little to hold onto (of course your first climber might have to go rope-less).

In Spooky, there’s a part of the trail where you come to 4-5 fallen boulders. There are a couple of holes to drop down to continue the trail. We used the hole on the left. The drop is only about 8-9 feet, but it’s dark. There are ropes lodged beneath the boulders to help you lower yourself down. Spooky is aptly named! It gets very, very narrow. Not for the claustrophobic.

Dirt road from Hwy 12 to trailhead turn off was in good shape. Last mile to trailhead was in poor shape.

The beginning of Peek a Boo wasn't marked. Fortunately we saw someone scrambling up the +15' pour off into Peek a Boo. We helped each other to get up the face -- very challenging and a bit scary. Once we were in the canyon, we ran into a few more pour offs. but they were manageable and dry.

After exiting Peek a Boo, we used our GPS to help route us to the entrance of Spooky. GPS was very helpful! Spooky was equally as beautiful as Peek a Boo but much narrower! In addition Spooky required us to crawl down several drop downs (about 6-8' each) in between boulders. One drop down had some ropes which were very helpful. In the narrow areas, we had to remove our packs and we still were rubbing on both our fronts and backs to get through the canyon.

It was a spectacular adventurous hike. I'd highly recommend doing it as a group with at least one athletic person who can scramble up the +15' Peek a Boo entrance and then help the others up. A GPS will also provide peace of mind since the frequency of trail markers low.
