Guided tour. Amazing place :-)

It was one of our favorite national Park hikes. The hike guide book provided at the museum near the trailhead was helpful to learn about things along the hike. Super fun with a few narrow squeezes through rocks along the trail, cool caves, great grippy sandstone, a juniper forest, thousands year old history, etc.

fabulous. The downhill was killer on old knees. Gorgeous.

Best part is you can hike straight from the parking lot, no waiting in line for the tram (1.5hr wait all day on a Tuesday). Wonderful photo opportunities. Not the most interesting hike in Zion but still worthwhile.

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.

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

My favorite hike in Sequioa National Park. The view from the Watchtower is epic. This hike changed my perspective of Sequioa NP, always thought it the only thing it has were Sequioas, but I wrong. After the Watchtower it's a short hike to Heather Lake where we just relaxed while a few people in our group took a dip in the lake. Definitely bring insect repellent if you plan to hangout the lake area.

Great hike through the Sequioas! Great views and once you get away from the tourist crowd it's a very peaceful hike surrounded by nature. Took a lunch break at Crescent Meadows then made our way back to General Sherman and boy was it crowded. It was a steep hike back up to the trailhead.

Keep going to (almost) the end to make sure to catch Sheep Rock and then check out the sign at the viewpoint, some cool info!

Great hike. Not a lot of shade going down. Switchbacks and plenty of water stations on the way up. Challenging full day hike. Start before sunrise and rest at Phantom Ranch. Classic hike.

Mentally tough but rewarding hike.

This was a good easy-to-moderate trail from the Park Avenue trailhead to the Courthouse Towers. I was there in 100 degree weather and I got heat exhaustion. I almost passed out on the trail. Even if I did, there were enough people around that I would have been okay. There’s next to no shade so bring lots of water and salty snacks.

Beautiful short hike through the Sequoia’s. Nothing difficult about this hike at all but still able to get up close to these amazing trees!

This place is beautiful and peaceful! It starts off at a waterfall. Looks a little to dangerous to get in. There are lots of nats and mosquitos since you’re walking along a pretty little river but, my bug spray from Walmart worked just fine. I fell in love with the meadow , there’s a wood walkway that takes you through it. We recorded 6.8 miles because we walked the whole thing and went around a extra loop at the end(by accident). My son is 9, it was his first hike and he did very well! This place is definitely a must see. (Also someone stole my go-pro from the bridge please return it

Hard hike but worth every minute!

This has made its way to one of my favorite hiking trails. This is a moderate hike that includes navigating rocks, some climbing and crossing the creek several times (and sometimes there weren’t rocks to walk across so wear good hiking boots). I hiked alone but saw about a dozen people during the entire hike. There are some small signs and cairns along the trail to help keep you on course which I was thankful for at times. The arch and natural waterfall forcing its way between two rock faces was worth it at the end.

i love this hike. not for non hikers.

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

Get up early and have this trail to yourself! We started our week with this gem. Hit the parking lot at 0700 and practically had the place to ourselves! Later in the day the place is like an ant hill! The Sherman Tree is absolutely glorious. They all are. The sequoias are a national treasure. It’s amazing to think about an organism that has been alive as long as they have. The trails in the area are bountiful and you can make a day of it just in the Giant Grove!

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.

A easy hike in the white sands. Very beautiful. Remember to take a sunglass as the white sands reflect the sunlight strongly.

I hiked this trail from 5am to 4pm, totally 11 hours. I parked my car in the visitor center and took the shuttle to South Kaibab trailhead, went down to the river, visited the Phantom Ranch and mailed some postcards, and went up from Bright Angel trail. It will be the most impressed hiking in my life. I feel this hiking is meaningful for me.
The day I hiked is not hot on the rim and it's a little raining in the hike. I took 2L water in the beginning, but not drink too much when going down because of the cool weather. In the campground beside the rive you can refill your water. Remember that the temperature in the bottom of the canyon is much higer that the rim. Even in that cool day I felt so hot when hiking in the bottom, which made me a little uncomfortable.
When going up along the Bright Angel trail, there is water in the Indian Garden, 3-mile and 1.5 mile rest houses, so you don't need to take too much water. Near the Indian Garden there will be a small river and many trees. It's a beautiful place to rest. The last 3 or 4 miles is very steep. Don't be hurry, especially at that time you are already tired.
I suggest to take two alpenstocks to protect your knees. Have a good trip on this trail!

Great trail! We started early this morning before the crowds hit, and did the touristy stuff, General Sherman, etc. Once you get past the touristy areas and off the paved trails, you find yourself in amazing groves of Sequoias with few people around. The trails are well maintained and marked well.

Amazing birthday hike. At the beginning parked in parking lot across river so had to wade to get to the trailhead. Not a moderate hike due to technical area thru boulders.. Invigorating swim at the lake!

A must do hike. We didn’t realize the green splotches on the ground were there to guide us so we did a lot of extra hiking. We went at 4:00 pm the last day of July so it was pretty hot and miserable until we made it to the other side of the mountain where you can view the arch from. Even in the terrible heat all four of our young kids were able to make it. They really enjoyed pulling themselves up the ladder and rope areas.

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.
