It's a sandy incline up to the top, but there is a convenient gazebo along the way, if needed. Be careful when you arrive as there are no barriers on the rim of the overlook. However the views of the winding Colorado River 1000 ft. below are breathtaking!

3 bc this is just for the river walk, but 5 for the narrows. Bottom-Up isn’t an option to review on this app. A previous trip I did the river walk bc my friend wasn’t a big hiker plus the conditions borderline that time of year. The paved HC accessible route just not for me and wasn’t at all a good impression of what Zion has to offer. The longer harder hikes are a game changer for those capable and willing to work a little. Anyways this was one of 7 back to backI hikes I did in a 6 day period between Bryce and Zion. I rented gear and at this time of year there’s not a crowd in the river (and Subway permit odds extremely high if you do a two day gear rental). A few times you have no option but to be waist deep so the full drysuit was reassuring even though many times I was too warm. Walking stick very helpful to test depth and determine direction of walking or at times when the extra sturdiness helpful bc of the current.

Caught sunrise at Bryce Pt and then drove over to sunset point since the visitor’s center told me to take Navajo to Peekaboo at this time. I’ve done the Navajo/Queens Garden loop before and its so stunning it doesn’t get old. I wore my creepers because of the initial descent but not sure if needed after that since traction on the snow on Fairyland the day before wasn’t an issue. Like every hike I’ve done in Bryce every moment is breathtaking. Highly recommended

Paved path with lots of areas to walk down to the river. We went Dec 12th and it wasn't too crowded. Great way to see the beginning of the narrows and looking up all you see is canyon walls. There was also dirt paths by the river you could walk but you do have to come up to the paved path at some points. We also saw the dipper bird! Very beautiful and peaceful hike, easy and wheelchair assable.

Super fun trail. Took the route of starting at the Primitive trail and ending with Devils Garden Main trail. Personally I found this to be nice because I went up the steep rock on primitive and not down it, which I was told many people turn around at that point. I will say though if going in the winter and planning on taking the same route, have ice spikes or chains. The Main Trail was icy around 2pm. The whole loop took me 4 hours and that includes stopping for lunch at Dark Angel and getting lost for about a half mile while looking for the Main Trail. Good hike all in all.

Too many tourist.

Beautiful wintry hike through the hoodoos - done in combination with Queens Garden Trail and Navajo Loop Trail. The trail is really easy to follow. We ended up going counter-clockwise, which seemed to have slightly less of the intense switchbacks uphill. But there is still a lot of up and down - so it’s tough to tell. Either way, it’s a gorgeous hike and really fun.

Very short hike in. Visited in the off season, and went for the sunset. It was still very busy, so get there well in advance. Take a blanket so you can sit along the edge and hang out.

Once you have the pamphlet the trail is very easy to find. Recommend doing this hike for sunset, it was beautiful and not a very large crowd. Will need some flashlights for the route back as it can be easy to lose the trail.

Did this loop in about 4hrs, hit all
The canyons, I’m a photographer to the photos were awesome! A lot better than dealing with the overpopulated slot canyons in AZ, and permitted. Some of the canyons get pretty tight so squeezing is required in some places and I am pretty fit. Had my camera backpack and had to remove to move forward through some areas. Hiking some of the trail can be strenuous through the sand so be prepared. But if you want beautiful slot canyons for photography, these are excellent!

Oct 6 2018- we started at about 650 am. Parking was fine. It was a short easy hike with lots of other people. Beautiful scenery and views of horseshoe bend. We were done in a little under an hour, with time for lots of pictures.

beautiful hike, way too crowded though. Very easy, and paved. Watch out for the squirrels. They make it impossible to stop for a snack :-)

fun short Trail. Make sure to follow the trail and not just the creek bed or you'll get off track. love the heart in the Rock at the end.

Even better than those in the nearby national parks. Not too technical. Great for family. There are some ups and downs. But it is fun to see the climbers around. Summer can be hot and exposed.

What a sunset spot! You have to check out this arch close up it is really something. Walk isn’t too tough and trail is easy to follow with trail markers along the way. Toke us about 40 minutes to the top and 30 mins on way down. Was pretty busy even in mid November but a most do if in arches. Plenty of parking and toilets at the trailhead.

One of the most popular hikes in the park and there is a reason. It’s a pretty high elevation gain over the 1.5 miles so take your time as you are going up. Plenty of places to stop and rest along the way. Once you are almost to the top there is a pretty small ledge that you walk around so those with heights might have some issues. Once you make it it is all worth it. The view is amazing and it is as spectacular as all the pictures you see of it. Make sure you take water and headlamps if there is any chance you are coming down in the dark. Kids loved it!

Easy hike especially on a cool fall day. Toadstool hoodoos are an a amazing sight. You get very close to them and you feel like you are on another planet. saw a lot of families with young kids. Also saw several dogs on the trail.

Amazing. I am a teensy bit scared of heights, but easily made it over the double o fin with a bit of hand holding and a whole lottta confidence.

This is by far an impressive hike! The primitive loop is well worth it. Truly gorgeous.

Hiked this trail in September to see the sunrise. It was one of the most spectacular places to hike! Would rate it as a moderate one, however we got to the parking lot at 6:40 and wanted make it to the top until the sunrise, so we had to do it really fast. It took us about 20 minutes in a very fast pace, which made hike quite difficult. If you are in no rush, then it can be very enjoyable experience. Would recommend doing it before sunrise because, first - it is not crowded and second - not hot at all. We were coming down around 9 am and it was already very hot, a lot of people just turned around on half way because of that and all that was in end of September.

Nice short walk along the river. Accessible for wheelchairs as fully pathed. Is very heavily trafficked. If want to go far into the narrows you can hire waterproof boot and trousers from the visitor centre for the next day.

As good as it gets for a moderate hike with great views! I went around 930 and pretty much had the trail to myself. this is a must when in moab!

Perfect hike for kids and older parents. crowded though so go earlier in day rather than later.

It long hike but wrath it amazing look step is different not go with stoker please walk is fine but be peasant you cane make we love it going is little bet change but back it good must go

Busy but great short hike !

On the Devils tour this week. Came in for the day and even tho we started the hike at 2:00 (a bit later than I planned) we finished up right before sunset and the light was magical.

Beautiful sunset and night photography opportunities. You can walk behind the arch and then to a lower level to avoid a lot of the tourists.
