To Do Hikes in Utah Map

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!

One of my all time favorite hikes in Utah valley. Be careful at the fork because it is very easy to miss.

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.

This is a beautiful hike.amd fun adventure to find all the Kairns to find the trail. The trail starts down a steep Rock face mountain, and then the trail varies from path to going over rock faces where you follow the Kairns. The falls were not running too strong in February, but still pretty. My only complaint about the hike is that it was so easy to get lost on the way back. I was never in any huge danger for I knew I had to climb one of the Rock faces to the east, but which one was safest. I ended up hiking up a nit too safe one and stepping on a rock that looked stable, but it started a mini Rock slide with me in it a little ways down the mountain. Freaked me out. It took me a while to get my breathing back to normal. It it what inspired me to get an external GPS for areas like Escalante that are so without service.and this trusty app. What a blessing that combo is.

I did this trail in February and it was cold enough to have gorgeous ice on the falls, but warm enough that the trail was either slushy, or super icy. I was so glad I had my spikes to hike the gorgeous last section that was steeper and so slippery. The trail did not feel stressful at all until I braved walking closer to the falls and then I took it very slow, but it was definitely doable.

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

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! did it by myself on a weekday and there;s nobody around. one star less because the central part that parallel with the bike trail is kinda boring. Very accessible slot canyon and so much diversity of rocks!

fun hike !!!

wide range of things to see. so much fun and by far one of my favorite hikes I've done. I did the glacier and back down the other side so it was a bit longer but absolutely incredible.

One of the best hikes you will ever do!
If possible get an permit and stay the night in the canyon.
I have done this hike, top to bottom, in one day 5 or 6 times and each time I swear, “never again”, until the next time I get an opportunity.

You can’t camp at the top so you must shuttle, either a paid shuttle with Zion Adventure Company or another service or drive yourself. If you drive yourself you must go back and get your car. Springdale to the trailhead requires about 2 hours each way and much of that is on slow dirt roads.

The hike is amazing. Some friends from Alaska, not strangers to dramatic scenery, said it was the best hike they have ever done. Plan on at least 10 hours, if you are not in great shape it may take 12-14 hours. You will be wet, about 8-10 miles are in water. Depending on flow and time of year you may have to swim some sections. It is easy to put you head down and march on. Don’t forget to stop and enjoy where you are.

Take trekking poles or a walking stick. You will need it for the many crossings for balance and to feel the bottom for depth and to find solid footing. A stick is stronger and cheaper. I have seen many trekking pole fold in half.

Bring water shoes and neoprene socks. Bring a warm jacket in a dry bag and a change of clothes for when you are done. Even in July it can get cold in this canyon, even worse if you are wet. Don’t skimp on emergency gear. Bring a flashlight, lighter, emergency blanket, and food sufficient to last an extra day. It is easy to break an ankle or suffer an injury that will require an unplanned extended stay.

This falls is a great family hike, and the kids love to stand under the 50 foot falls and get wet. It is also a favorite for those learning how to rappel. There is often people at the top repelling down the side of the waterfall. To get to the falls, you take the Pleasant Grove Utah exit 275. Turn east, and follow the road up to 100 E in Pleasant Grove. Turn right to 200 S, then turn left (east). Follow the road all the way to the top where there is a parking lot, and the trail head. The hike starts kinda dry and hot, but it as soon as you get up to where the water is not piped in, it gets greener and cooler. It is only about 1 mile up to the falls, and there is is cool and a delightful area to explore. If you have more time, you can hike past the falls, and right off the bat you will see 2 more pretty waterfalls. The hike above is steeper but if you go up about another mile there is a spot where the river gets wide, Rocky and very shallow. There is a sign here and there is a trail that heads over to Dry Creek Canyon. If you go from here up about another half mile it gets a little steeper and narrow, but you end up coming to a T in the trail. The right side heads to Baldy or connects also with Dry Canyon. The left side gets up to a dirt road that you can drive all the way out to American Fork Canyon. I usually walk the road for just a little while and then head off on a small trail through the meadow that heads down Grove Creek Canyon, and right by Indian Springs. This canyon was named because a tribe of Indians used to live up in this meadow. Some squirmish happened with the Indians and the Pioneer settlers and there really was a battle between the two that happened at the base of Battle Creek Canyons. A beautiful canyon with spectacular cliffs, beautiful waterfalls, and a bonus that you are very close to the river almost the whole hike. Here is a 360 stitch of the hike up until the turn off towards Dry Canyon. http://shaunasadventures.blogspot.com/2018/02/360-adventure-battle-creek-canyon.html?m=1

on Red Pine Lake Trail

Such a beautiful hike. Nice inclines.

Great hike. Not that many people for it being Spring Break so a lot of the trail was just myself and the kids. Feels like being on another planet.

make sure to go on a sunny day for the best views. the valley looked gray and dull brown instead of its normal brilliant orange due to a combination of cloud cover and wet rock.

there is no snow on the trail currently.

took me 5 hours hiking slowly with breaks. surface is all paved, slickrock, or packed dirt. the hike is relatively easy for its length and elevation change.

It’s a quick jaunt. Still a little muddy and slick in some places.

Great hike. Went up today, it was over 60 degrees, so there was a lot of mud/slush..Was easier to walk off the trail in either deeper snow or dry leaves much of the time...As has been mentioned, stay to the left. After the 5th bridge I would say the fork comes up in 150 meters or so..The views are incredible from the top. Just wow. Saw deer when I entered the meadow area before the last turn up the last hill..A lot of snow in the upper part, but packed down nicely. Highly recommend poles especially for the descent..it was slippery and wet...and totally worth it..didn't see one person up or down after taking a left at the fork... going down required some balance and using the poles a lot as there is deep mud and slush in many parts...and yet I'd do it again..btw, my phone showed about 8 miles..took about 3.75 hours..

This keeps you mostly on the side of the mountain and the scenery is absolutely beautiful. It is strenuous switchbacks and all up hill

Hiked this two days ago. No ice and snow, and the trail having been paved in a lot of places makes for easier hiking and can shorten the hike time. Very strenuous at the beginning but the trail gets easier when you walk through a canyon in the middle. Then you’ll have some more switchbacks to do, and finally the last 0.5-1 mile is a level walk around the rim of Zion canyon to the point. Took our group about 4 hours on the money to go up and down. And we took several breaks on the way up.

Pretty steep trail and very muddy which made it slippery.

If you want to enjoy the sunset in a quiet place, you have to try it.

Short but steep. Beautiful view.

One of the most beautiful hikes I've done. Nicely snowpacked for the majority of the trail, just used microspikes and carried snowshoes which were helpful for the top near the lake and walking around the lake which was frozen and snow covered. Completed 3/11/18.

Great views of the city!

beautiful view! and great workout especially with the snow.

This is a must do! Experience hiking and rock climbing does help. Bring a rope/strap just in case and plenty of water. I don't recommend going alone. Best route is up Peek-a-boo and then down Spooky. If you have time take a stroll up Dry Fork to see the varied rocks and for the solitude.

Nice slot that conveniently merges with buckskin gulch. Use the alternative way around the 8ft drop which was nice. The drop wasn’t bad but had a lot of camera gear and didn’t want to chance it

What an amazing trip up to Blanche today. The trail is hard packed all the way to the top. Snow shoes not needed to the lake but spikes are highly recommended. The sun was out and no wind. Even lugged up some ice fishing gear and landed 5 browns in only 20 min. Nothing above 10”. The action is fast due to lack of food right now I’m sure. The ice was about 4 feet deep and plenty safe. We head lumped early, but the trail was busy on our way down. Everyone was really respectful and nice and I was glad to see many people enjoying the amazing day. Happy trekking

Great city view, try it night time...
