Sooooo many people....

Beautiful views the entire way and access to water virtually whole time courtesy of a stream running alongside the trail. At least 3/4 of the trail is sand so took little longer than usual. Not much tree coverage so expect to be exposed to the elements. But the falls are oh so pretty! Refreshing dip on a hot day.

Best arch in the national park! And the hike wasn’t as hard as some may say. Just make sure you start early enough to beat the heat and avoid crowds. We started at 7 am and that was the perfect time. I wouldn’t recommend starting this hike midday; it should honestly be closed around 11 am - 4 pm because that heat can be dangerous!

Fun trail with three distinct sections. Just be careful, sign at trailhead lists it as “1.5....one way.” Quickly read it and assumed it was mileage for out and back (like normal...). Was in for a slightly longer trip than planned. Lots of groups complaining about water very early on and resting in any shade they could find. Also lots of little kids with no water and barely any clothing/protection. Plan appropriately, it’s lots of sun and decent climbing for families.

Super easy hike. The cave was beautiful. There was very small stream at the waterfall in August

Easy for kids and beautiful. I didn’t love the dirt road to get there.

Good views of the Needles formations. Trail is completely exposed and at times hard to follow.

This arch is a sunrise must. Get there earlier than 15 minutes before sunrise though because there were a wall of people setup with tripods hogging the entire photograph viewpoints at that time already. If not for the surprising amount of people I would’ve gave 5. Popular spot, so come early if you want a parking spot.

I hiked this trail starting around 10am before it got too hot. It was pretty steep and I had to stop and catch my breath a few times. There were a lot of people in the same boat. The view from the arch was well worth the hike.

So trail was fun, not very well defined itself but had enough cairns, signs, and reflective tape hidden in shrubs to make it doable (in the sunlight). Consider myself a somewhat experienced hiker and I lost the trail multiple times, especially at the ladder - turn around immediately! Wandered around the little valley there until I realized the trail continued right where you step down from the ladder. With all this said, make sure you check your directions. Don’t know if it was alltrails or google maps that messed up but I definitely shoulda double checked...originally had me driving up a 4 wheeling road at Onion Creek for 15 miles in my Jetta....did a decent amount before I turned around and just thought I wasn’t making it to the trailhead. When I got service again briefly I realized there was an actual Fisher Towers campsite and trailhead. Headed over and started almost two hours later than I wanted (with it only being 2.2 mi to the turnaround I thought I was ok), resulting in me being 1.75 miles out in pitch black before realizing my foolishness. Longest, scariest return even with a headlamp and a small flashlight. Moral: don’t trust computers and don’t overestimate your abilities. Still an exhilarating drive and a fun, mentally and physically challenging trail.

Gorgeous and the water is a welcome cool off. Be prepared for crowds though.

Great and easy walk. Recommend getting there early. Great views and people watching. People, please don't try to do this thing barefoot, I saw 4 people at the start trying to walk barefoot in the river... They probably didn't make it far. Buy some sandals or watershoes. Also, in general at zion don't bother with camping in the park, it stays so hot there in the summer months. Ask one of the park employees for dispersed camp zones. Stayed in one surrounding a lake and it was beautiful

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.

Really nice short and easy hike to cap off my time at Canyonlands. Did it towards the end of the day when the sun was setting, which really made the experience!

Very worthwhile walk to see delicate arch. It was super hot so wear a broad rimmed hat and bring plenty water. There are some shady areas under trees and rocks on the way up but it's 95% exposed. Terrain is varied and includes walking up a rock.... not a problem if it's dry. Great views at top. We took some time to enjoy view before returning down. We stopped by to see the petroglyphs.

This is just so fun. Make sure you have good shoes (that you're ok getting wet) the water is cold pretty much no matter when you go and the rocks in combo with the cold water will kill your feet.

Amazing

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.

One, not what i thought it would be. Two don’t go in august, barely seeping water.

Very beautiful. I saw stars here at night, but it's really hard to find the way in the dark.

The scene you can look through the arch likes that in another planet!

The bridge is amazing. The rocks along the trail are also featured.

A small cave and a small waterfall. Interesting but not must go.

A must see in arches and Moab. Take plenty of water. Very hot and busy with people all day long. The hustle and bustle of all the people almost makes it more exciting in this case though. Not as negative as when I see lots of people on other trails I do.

A easy hiking to the river, with the mode of expectation of hiking in the river!

Totally worth it! Bring 2 liter of water with you in the hot summer.

Gorgeous trail. It takes you down, so you can walk among the hoodoos.

Not really worth the hike in the summer...there was a trickle though. The mossy cave was still mossy. The best part was dipping our feet in the cold water.

a wonderful trail with incredible scenery I camped at the 5 site campsite using a hammock tent between the juniper trees. not to hot in July. important to take plenty of water as the red rocks and relative steepness can make it a thirsty hike. there is shade along the break and none slippy shoes are a must. they recommend 4 hours I did it comfortable ly in 3. stopping for views and snacks. the colours at sunset are gorgeous and in July I saw no one and started at. 430pm . there were 2 sites left when I arrived. 15$ a night. no showers but toilet is clean and picnic table and fire pit for every site. pay for spot first before u hike to ensure getting it. great views stayed twice.

Very cool experience hiking up the river. Would have been a little easier if the water wasn't so muddy. Definitely get there early morning to avoid the crowds. We were headed back out around 12:30 and the amount of people just entering was mind blowing, especially since all the flash flood warning suggest being out of the narrows by early afternoon. Way too many people for my liking.
