Ntnl Park Hikes Map

Beautiful hike down through some incredible formations that include a couple of natural bridges. Some muddy sections this time of year.

3 friends and I hiked this one after a harder hike. Beautiful views leading up to it, but the pools themselves were alright. It was cooler at the top so we cooled off then headed back. Moderately challenging because of all the rocks on the trail, but worth it!

The hike is pretty easy, but fun nonetheless. Glad we hiked when we did, the weather was in the upper 30's to low 40's with sunny skies. This helped to keep the crowds down but when we heading back to the parking lot, the trail was very crowded. Coming around the bend to the arch was breathtaking. Worth taking the time to see this beautiful natural arch. Would hate to do this hike in the summer.

This is a fantastic hike. You get to see so many sites with a limited number of miles. I enjoy being down among the hoodoos and seeing them stand over you provides a different perspective than when you are on the rim. This is a must do hike for any hikers visiting Bryce Canyon.

We had a very late start at 4p. But we’re up and back down in time to catch one of the last shuttles (4:10 total trip time including 40ish minutes at the point). Since we were essentially there for sunset, we had the place to ourselves. This is an incredible hike providing visual rewards after taking step number 1. On the ‘hard’ rating spectrum, OP falls much closer to moderate.

Wonderful trail to get up close and personal with the Hoo Doos. We added Peek-a-Boo loop. There was a bit of residual ice, snow, and red muddy slush on the trail, but traction was ok in hiking boots. Views were astonishing. We saw a herd of 15 deer at the bottom.A steep climb out, but worth it.

Quick hike, good for all skill levels and nearly all abilities (though ground is not flat)! View is incredible!

Took a guided hike with a park ranger. He explained the historic significance of the site, and the NPS efforts to preserve it. Please be respectful while at False Kiva and stay off the structures. The walk up is quite strenuous, on eroding thin switchbacks going up and down, but views and shade at False Kiva are beyond worth the trek. Highly recommend, with caution! Hike is unmarked, and could easily be lost.

long monotonous beginning straight up one large rock, then flat for a while before reaching some really interesting terrain before the arch. Delicate Arch was packed when I went on a Sunday afternoon, and rather steep, but still amazing! Bigger than expected! Parking can be tough on busy days. Bring LOTS of water.

We went after an overnight snow storm. The snow was melting and the water volume was up because of it. The falls between the middle and lower pools had three different falls, with quite a bit of water volume. The upper falls was simply amazing. When you tried to stand by the upper pool, you were getting drenched, it felt like it was creating its own wind, and you felt very chilled.

This trail had way to many people on it for me to give it more than 4 stars. It was a true traffic jam at times between the middle falls and the upper fallls.

This trail is very heavily trafficked trail that leads to the start of the lower narrows. It is a nice walk along the Virgin river but is built for the high traffic so you are walking on concrete or pavement most of the way up. We had great views of the waterfall on our hiking day because it has snowed the night before and the snow was melting.

Did this the day after Angel's Landing, and we thought it was very cool to look down from Observation Point and see where we hiked the day before. The way up is tiring but lunch at the top was beautiful, and let us rest for an easy hike down. While not the most well-known hike in the park, I would definitely argue it's a must-do if you visit!

Awesome hike...only able to go about .25 miles in the river because of some rain but it was just stunning.

Easy hike , beautiful when we went, three waterfalls overhead so amazing

Fantastic trail! This was one of the highlights of our trip to Arches.

Definitely do the entire loop if possible. We actually found the primitive trail portion to be easier than the main trail because there was less time on the windy, exposed high rocks — also, the primitive trail is very well marked with cairns, so if you keep an eye out for those you won’t get lost.

Fantastic hike! I would call it moderate. Be careful not to lose the trail at the end or you’ll end up walking on a somewhat treacherous path around the arch itself (which we accidentally did.)

We were there earlier this week and loved this hike! It is definitely challenging but worth it. No ice when we went but the rocks were slick. My 12 and 14 year old boys loved it. Definitely hit this trail first as it gets busy! We went around 8:30 and it was fine...a little cold but bearable. We also hit Double Arch, Windows and Balanced Rock. Those were our favorites. Drove by Fiery Furnace overlook(very cool) but cant hike that without a pass..looks pretty scary too!

Just stunning. Not too bad snow wise but there was a storm coming in after we left so it might’ve all changed. A must do if you’re in Bryce.

I’d imagine this hike is a lot prettier in the summer with more vegetation. The trail up is pretty and you get to see the falls that come from the pools above (falls isn’t the right word its more line streams that run off the side of the rocks). I’m definitely glad I did it but on my next visit I plan on choosing new hikes to explore instead of this one.

Trail is easy to get to a flat. I would recommend going early in the morning. It was quiet and serine walking through the water and having the canyon walls shooting up around us. Despite going the first week of March after we had turned around to head back around 10:30 there were numerous louder groups coming through so we were glad we had gone earlier.

First time here. Loved it. Gotta be prepared in all ways possible though, specially on this kind of weather (cloudy partially flakey).

We brought our own waders to go in the river, and we had no issues with the cold water. However, our feet were a bit sore when we were done. Would have been nice to have the water hiking shoes like the ones they rent out. Beautiful views, and when we started as the sun was rising there was no one else on the trail yet.

Pretty good views and definitely a must do if you come to Zion...however, do not attempt after doing angels landing

Absolutely awesome hike. Glad we did the entire hike. We went counter-clockwise and we were glad we did. Not very many people on the primitive trail. Make sure you have good shoes with good grip because you do have to do some scrambling. The views were spectacular and going the direction we did, we were able to avoid a lot of the crowds.

Rent the gear!!!! It is well worth the money if you want to get past 2 steps in the river. The views are spectacular and so different than other hikes. Be prepared for extremely slippery rocks underneath you that you can’t see. Start early!!!! Beat the crowds. We went in march and took the first 7:00am shuttle.

Absolutely beautiful! This was the first hike I've done at Zion and I would definitely do it again. The switchbacks were tiring, but the views were worth it. Hiking this trail felt like going through various landscapes.

Great hike with spectacular views at the end. This was one of the easiest hikes we did in the Big 5, there is an uphill section and a few large steps up but very accessible. I would consider this an easy hike or a moderate walk.

I'm fat and out of shape... thought I was going to have a heart attack... but, I DIDN'T! I made it to the arch! My husband had both knees replaced 13 months ago and HE made it too!
