Can get icy spikes are recommended for the winter if you head past lower falls. I usually stop here and then head to the upper falls. Lots to see at Johnston Canyon

Beautiful hike. Challenging, but a lot of fun. The view up top is worth the fierce incline on the way up.

Fantastic dog friendly trail.

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

Probably the best hike (this and the loop in the north part with several arches). This is a clasic and a must-hike./walk

I think this is my favorite. Of course, doing the whole circuit is worth it.

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

Boring. Easy.

Difficult road to travers to the actual trail head unless you have an all wheel drive vehicle. We walked the road to the TH and the trail itself is not long but steep and appearing not formerly maintained. The hike is sleek with rock and covered in fallen leaves making it difficult to traverse in many areas. The pay off is well worth the jaunt with a beautiful falls. The drive to this falls is also splendid.

I climbed the rocks but there is a path behind it as well. Beyond belief beautiful.

This was a good, well trafficked hike. We completed this hike in early August and it was very hot. Make sure to bring plenty of water.

More moderate than hard - I’m carrying a fair bit of excess baggage and found this walk ok - defo 5 stars

Nice walk at a nice arch - lots of options to extend

We did it in mid october and the trail through the frozen lakes (mirror, agnes) was wonderful. very quiet at this period (just saw 5 people during the hike) si even better. breathtaking view of lake Louise.

The hike isn't that long and is very easy and the views are absolutely breathtaking!! Definitely the most beautiful and crystal clear lake close to Banff!! My oldest son even drank water from the lake.

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

This hike did not disappoint! started at 9 am and finished by 430, but we really really took our time. the weather was gorgeous and our hiking boots and smart wool socks were fine for the hike. perhaps bring an extra pair of socks or get neoprene if youre worried. this time of year the water didnt even touch our ankles. be prepared to climb and navigate
the hike is not too difficult but definitely is technical. also, be prepared to work your butt off when Climbing back out.

one of my favorite hikes ever

Another wonderful hike in Zion. This was a long day hike. We felt the warnings that came with this hike might have been overkill. “Route finding required” basically just means there isn’t a paved path; there’s multiple paths braiding both sides of the river. Other than the hike in and out of the valley, the hike is not challenging, but it is still a long day.

The subway was rad, and a main reason for visiting Zion. It’s a must do trip if you can get a permit.

I really loved this hike. Slot canyons for days. We turned around shortly after Wall Street. Pro Tip: travel is really slow, our pace was just over 1 mile/hour. Normally we move over 3 /hour.

This is one of the best hikes in one of the best national parks and arguably one of the best hikes in the country. The trail along the north or south shores of Lake Josephine are flat but it is heavy grizzly territory. After a little more than 2 miles from the trailhead you will begin the ascent up Mt. Grinnell. The climb is difficult but extremely rewarding. The views of the surrounding Many Glacier area are some of the best in the park and depending on the season, waterfalls are present along the cliff face from glacier runoffs. Once you get to the top you are greeted by Grinnell and Salamander Glaciers. The crystal clear blue glacier water is even more beautiful in person than it is in the photographs. Hikers can take a break relaxing near the glaciers before heading back down. Although it's a challenge, I think everyone that visits GNP should check-out this hike; you won't regret it!

Absolutely amazing views from the arch! Take plenty of water. It was cloudy and 55 degrees and I still went through two bottles. I went early in the morning and was at the arch by 9. There were tons of people heading up on my way back down, so I recommend going early. Well worth the hike. This one is a must do!

Nice hike, especially if you have kids and want something that feels like a hike without being too difficult. Landscape arch is HUGE.

We went with our young kids in 65-70 degree weather. Perfect! The trail is awesome, with some parts like they were lifted from the set of an old western. Before going, we had our kids practice walking single file along an imaginary cliff edge. I'm glad we did for the last stretch by the drop off, because our usually rambunctious kids were well-behaved. The arch is amazing to see, but it's not the most kid-friendly point with drop offs all around. We stayed for about two minutes then turned back.

We went at sunset, and that might be overrated. I'm not sure it was different than any other time of day.

late fall is great for serenity, as I heard it gets quite busy.

Very fun hike to do with kids. Did this with my wife and 9 year old son and had a blast! Took most of the day but worth it. If you plan to bring kids, make sure you check out the water levels. You can also check in with a ranger before you go to see what the likelihood for flooding is. One thing I read people raving about was the canyoneering shoes you can rent outside the gate and how much they recommend them. We all rented for maybe 20/25 bucks a pair. My wife and son liked them, but my pair just kept the water in the boot all day and by the end they were really sore and pruny. Might invest in something waterproof that drains the water more efficiently.

so, it's fun, it's just a walk in and out of water in a deep canyon. great views. we would have been fine in keens and shorts. maybe cold up till may. if you do not have shoes then rent only them its twice as much for pants

We started out by renting gear at Zion Outfitters in Springdale. For $45 each, we were given waterproof pants and boots, neoprene socks, and a sturdy wooden walking stick. The water level in the creek varied from ankle to thigh deep. The water was 50 degrees..In areas where the water was not clear, you need to be aware of submerged rocks that can cause you to fall We hiked as far as Floating Rock and then turned back. I think we hiked a.bout six miles. This hike was a good change of pace.

Good hike! The first part until lake Agnes is a pretty popular trail, bigger and more people but once you reach lake Agnes/Tea House and start your way up to BigBeehive you will see less people and the trail becomes smaller (which I like!) The switchbacks are pretty steep on lake Agnes side, but take your time and you'll make it! Needed cleats 2 weeks ago. Nice view of Lake Louise and Little Beehive. Nice little open cabin with benches to take a break before heading down (or up for Devil's Thumb!)

Group of fairly fit 60-somethings made it up no problem. Great scenery on the way as well as the top. Lots of friendly weekend folks. Just one of multiple trails in Arches Nat’l Park.
