This is an excellent trail. Moderate is the right grading as the start is reasonably energetic but by no means strenuous in our view. We are a family, reasonably fit but nothing exceptional with 15 and 12 year old boys. The views are fantastic, the photo opportunities along the way plentiful and incredible. There is a lovely canyon portion in the middle which is shaded. The top section is easy going until observation point which is a good place to take in the elevated view and replenish reserves for the trip down. We started at 08:15, took many photos on the way up and stayed at the top for 20 minutes or so. We were back at the start by 12:15. We did not rush at any point.

Hiked Devil's Bridge this morning and the views are amazing! I drove to the parking area with my Subaru Outback and it was bumpier and more steep than I anticipated, I would recommend a higher clearance vehicle. Like others have mentioned get there in the morning to avoid the crowd and heat!

Second time in the Narrows confirms my belief that this is an experience to not miss. I used 2 adjustable walking poles and which seemed to make me balance and move more safely than those with one or none. They say water shoes are not recommended. I found my water shoes to be just fine. Unless you have bad ankles I don’t think you need ankle support as long as you are cautious about foot placement. Go early (before 7:30) to avoid the crowds, and don’t miss this hike!!

Mentally tough but rewarding hike.

I did it today, it’s really nice but bring a lot of water with you

The view at the end his so nice, it was the best hike of my life !!!!

Difficult but fun hike, make sure to have plenty of water.

This hike is a slice of heaven. To us it was a combination of several different hikes we have been on together. My husband an I are pretty fit, my husband far more than myself(he could leave me in the dust) and we made it up to Observation point in 2 hours. That’s including several photo op stops and stops to take in the scenery. We absolutely enjoyed the scenery and views on the way up far more as opposed to the actual observation point. It was sort of anticlimactic for us. We made it down in about 1.5hrs, the inclines are pretty intense going up which makes for a pretty crazy decline on the way down. We chose to wear our running shoes but I suggest hiking shoes or boots with better absorption for the decline, my knees definitely felt the impact on the way down. I do suggest starting as early as you can, watching the sun shift throughout the trail and light up the rocks was stunning and not to mention we were primarily in shade for most of the hike. We started at 0800. And the crowds were far less earlier than what we saw coming down at 11am. Fair warning, there is no warm up to the incline, you just get thrown right into the huffin and puffin. Enjoy!

Great hike that leads you on two adventures. Go up to the top and then hike down to the river. Parking is in the middle. Lovely day!

Love this hike. The views are worth it. Only downside is how busy it is at the top. People will stand in line to have their solo moment on the bridge and literally just make people wait until their 50 spread photo shoot is over. Unless you're like me and you walk across the bridge to sit at the end of it, out of their picture. Sorry, not sorry.

Hard hike but worth every minute!

i love this hike. not for non hikers.

Outstanding hike. End view worth the “stairs”. If you can hike Piestewa in Phoenix you can easily do this.

Amazing hike! I did this hike in its entirety to the Bright Angle campground at the river ten years ago with my father for his 55th birthday. Ten years later I went back with my wife and three kids (two teenagers and one early 20’s) and hiked to the three mile rest house they loved it, it’s challenging but worth it! Make sure you have water and containers to hold water and proper hiking boots. Recommend starting early because it gets warm fast! There are a lot of people on the trail which can be good and bad, between breaks you get time to chat with people from all over the world.

Initially, I was looking forward to hiking “Angels Landing” or “Narrows” trails at Zion Canyon, but both were closed. Angels is closed indefinitely and Narrows closed due to flooding.

My hiking bestie and I decided to hike to “Observation Point.” We hopped in our car and left Las Vegas at 7:45am PST. We soon realized we lost an hour due to the time change into MST. We arrived in Zion at 11:30am (stopped once for a restroom break). The hike to Observation Point starts at “Weeping Rock Trailhead.” There’s a mandatory $35 entrance fee to get into the park - but it’s good for 7 days. Just a heads up, you can purchase an annual pass for $50. Parking at the trailhead is very limited so you’ll be more than likely be forced to park in town (the closest parking lot to the Zion Canyon shuttle (green shuttle) pick up will cost you $30). If you decide to park further away, it will only cost you $20 but you’ll have to take the town shuttle (brown shuttle) first before taking the Zion Canyon shuttle. Rather than waiting for two shuttles, we opted to pay the extra $10 and wait for the Zion Canyon shuttle. To avoid the crowds and waiting in an excruciatingly long line for the shuttle, I recommend getting there early as possible since we waited about half an hour for the shuttle. Be prepared to wait in the scorching hot sun - it felt like waiting in line for a ride at Disneyland. Not fun at all. The shuttles are not air conditioned and they pack as many people on as they can. So you may be one of the unlucky ones sans a seat.

Once you’re on the shuttle, it’s about a 20 minute ride to the 7th stop to Weeping Rock Trailhead. From there, you immediately begin the grueling hike as it doesn’t waste any time gaining elevation zigzag-ing up the east side of the Zion Canyon. It was almost 1pm by the time we actually started the hike. We made it to the top in roughly an hour 45 minutes. Round trip, it took us about just over 3 hours. I consider us to be above average fitness levels. I’m sure my hiking partner could have made it to the top sooner but I definitely had to take a few water breaks because it was so hot - 100 degrees!

The trail is definitely “strenuous but worth it” as described online. Just before getting top, it does level out a bit. With that said, be prepared for a rather steady elevation gain for most of the hike. I recommend bringing at least 3 liters of water, pack some light snacks, change of clothes, sunglasses and sun block.

The view at “observation point” is absolutely stunning - photos and videos do no justice whatsoever. It’s nice to finally be able to check Zion Canyon off my bucket list. So worth it! From the towering red rock, to the lush greenery, formidable landscape and to the breath taking views at the top, the observation point trail at Zion Canyon is an unforgettable and epic experience. Highly recommended!

People are insanely unprepared for this hike. Energy levels are showing way to low and the main hike to the top hasn't even started. The chains are a huge help, but this isn't for the average "walker" or tourist in a pair of snickers. You must be prepared for this, hydrated and the proper footwear. Seriously people! no more near misses- this trail will close permanently

Easy enough hike, could be at the top and down again in under an hour. If you are looking to stretch the legs before a more advance hike I suggest this one. Views are incredible from above

This s one of my favorite hikes of all time!! I've done it several times. Incredible!!!!!I would recommend going early in the morning ( at least in the summer) the sun can be pretty brutal.

our first time to zion and our first hike. it was short and fairly easy for adults. we have a 7 and 10 year old and there were a few ledges that made my heart pound. otherwise there was no complaining. the view at the end was beautiful. parking was tough, we arrived at 10am.

easy hike, if you can call it that. it is less than 30 minutes but a fun experience if you have the time.

Short, easy hike. Nice cool place

Absolutely worth it. The crowd gets less and less the further you go through the canyon. We took the shuttle at stop 3 to avoid the awful line at the visitors center. We all wore water shoes we previously got for rafting. Made it all the way to the fork and tried climbing up those water falls, but eventually grew tired; we were not prepared to hike 10+ miles.

We started at the visitors center at 7:30 am. It was so busy we had to wait for a bus. The entire shuttle was heading to the narrows so be prepared for traffic. We hiked all the way to the spring which was pretty, however not sure it was completely worth hiking all the way out there. Tons of people paid $25 for waterproof shoes however my sneakers worked just fine. It is worth hiking in about 2-3 miles early in the morning when the shade it still covering the water. It took us 2.5 hrs to get to the spring and about 2 hours to return. On our way back, it was like an amusement park trying to navigate through all the crowds. Go early!

Awesome but strenuous hike. The view is incredible. Get there early and bring as much water as you can carry. Bring electrolytes as well. Two hikers had to be rescued by search and rescue. One guy had severe disabling cramps, the other got heatstroke. I do not recommend this hike for kids or for novice hikers.

Hard to imagine the views in Sedona getting much better than this. Easy to find the trailhead - just follow the rough dirt 'road' that is accessible only by high-clearance SUVs.

It's a rather easy walk to the vertical portion, and there is some minor scrambling to reach the top. So many trails in Sedona - we picked this one because of the uniqueness, and were rewarded with throngs of people just like us: the trail can be crowded and noisy.

It's funny to hike with chains in the hand, but don't too worry about the danger. Just be careful. Actually the most difficult part is before reaching the cliff, as it's very steep. When you hike with chains, you always need to stop to wait for others in the opposite direction, so will not be very tired.

It's so excited to hike in a river! I hiked for two hours. It's will be one of the most unforgettable experience in my life.

Tough hike in the sun and heat but worth it.

This is a trail of many varied sections but ultimately you're climbing 80% of the way to the observation point.

We started hiking at 9am, got there at 11.30 with plenty of stops. We had lunch and it took us just under 2 hours to return (plenty stops). We were family with 10, 13 and 15 year old kids.

Main issue is sun and heat. It would be a moderate hike if it was cool.

View from the top is incredible. Overlooking angel's landing is quite something.

Highly recommended.

Great moderate hike with great views from the top.

Although the grade is steep to walk up to the falls, I didn't feel this was a hike - more of a walk up to the falls. This is a good trail for families because it's paved and wide. Just be careful nobody slips on the water.
This is a short hike, so every time I'm in Zion, I tack it onto my other hikes.

A lovely hike if you're looking for a trail that takes you by (and in) water. It'll cool you off a little if you're a summer hiker.
