Great hike short but sweet

Great hike for all experience levels. When I went, there were plenty of families with kids, trail runners, and pups on the trail. There was no snow or frost when I went.

Snagged a wilderness permit and we did the 16 miles down... sleeping overnight at campsite 10. Was amazing!!

Boring. Easy.

Difficult on the way down due to slippery gravel. Great view at top! Good hike with 2 eleven year olds.

Nice guided hike looks awesome.

On a clear day, it is a STUNNING view. Even on a smoky day, it’s still beautiful. It’s a steep hike up and not marked. However, it’s pretty self-explanatory. It’s well-traversed enough. You get to this first lookout area that’s flat, which means you’re almost there!

Totally amazing

I did this hike in August because Angels Landing was closed. It’s a steady climb of switchbacks with spectacular views. Midway is a slot canyon with shade and a nice stop for photos before continuing to the summit. The temperature was reaching the 90s. Take 2-3 liters of water and snacks. I arrived at the summit at lunch and it was very crowded. I found a relaxing spot to enjoy the views over Angels Landing and watch the tourists taking pics and face timing friends. Round trip was aprox 4 hours. Fantastic hike!

Great hike!! Did this hike a couple days ago and the weather was perfect! Started right before 8 am and finished right under 4 hours. Spent about 20 min at the top. Was only 2 other people up there. Amazing views! Glad we did the hike when we did before it warmed up. The second set of switchbacks was tougher than the first. As soon as we finished this hike we went and did Angels Landing. I thought this hike was better and is def my favorite in the park!

Hike is fun and gives a great view over SLC. You park on the road and walk up. Look for the Yellow sign with numbers as this is the start of the trail - there are no signs for it. TV remote is a nice touch.

Awesome hiking take good hiking shoes and water.

Beautiful view! Just like most people describe, this trail delivers a nice short, challenging jaunt.

I've read in other blogs that it is recommended to extend your trip to Mount Wire, a continuation of the Living Room Trail. I also recommend the summit Mount Wire to the old radio tower (breathtaking), but I would say taking the southeast route to the summit FIRST would be much easier (counter clockwise). That stretch is steep with loose rock scree and is difficult coming down. That way you'll have the Living Room to reward yourself with on the descent.

If you're just doing The Living Room, that is great too.

Very beautiful and enjoyable, however there are a lot of different trails and none of them have a marker so you kind of have to figure it out yourself. Good luck.

Cool and nice. Water is very urgent and fast. Fell down a couple times.

Great hike, well maintained. Bring plenty of water as this is strenuous. I am scared of heights, but the trail is sturdy so I did not have any difficulties with the drop offs at points. Bring a pair of hiking poles!!!!

This hike did not disappoint! started at 9 am and finished by 430, but we really really took our time. the weather was gorgeous and our hiking boots and smart wool socks were fine for the hike. perhaps bring an extra pair of socks or get neoprene if youre worried. this time of year the water didnt even touch our ankles. be prepared to climb and navigate
the hike is not too difficult but definitely is technical. also, be prepared to work your butt off when Climbing back out.

one of my favorite hikes ever

Another wonderful hike in Zion. This was a long day hike. We felt the warnings that came with this hike might have been overkill. “Route finding required” basically just means there isn’t a paved path; there’s multiple paths braiding both sides of the river. Other than the hike in and out of the valley, the hike is not challenging, but it is still a long day.

The subway was rad, and a main reason for visiting Zion. It’s a must do trip if you can get a permit.

I really loved this hike. Slot canyons for days. We turned around shortly after Wall Street. Pro Tip: travel is really slow, our pace was just over 1 mile/hour. Normally we move over 3 /hour.

Amazing hike. Bring lots of water. Views going up and at the summit are spectacular. Strenuous with the switchbacks but absolutely worth it!!!!

Another incredible hike in Zion. The hike has significant elevation gain virtually all the way to the viewpoint. There’s no shortage of awe inspiring views the entire trip. My only tip, is from the view point, follow the cliff line clock wise for a bit. The views are just as impressive looking down the canyon at the Temple of Sinawava but there’s no one there.

i liked it pretty short so go to red butte and make it a loop!

Found a sport dog field trainer thing on the trail. find me on Instagram @savethenegs to retrieve it.

Very fun hike to do with kids. Did this with my wife and 9 year old son and had a blast! Took most of the day but worth it. If you plan to bring kids, make sure you check out the water levels. You can also check in with a ranger before you go to see what the likelihood for flooding is. One thing I read people raving about was the canyoneering shoes you can rent outside the gate and how much they recommend them. We all rented for maybe 20/25 bucks a pair. My wife and son liked them, but my pair just kept the water in the boot all day and by the end they were really sore and pruny. Might invest in something waterproof that drains the water more efficiently.

so, it's fun, it's just a walk in and out of water in a deep canyon. great views. we would have been fine in keens and shorts. maybe cold up till may. if you do not have shoes then rent only them its twice as much for pants

Oh heck yes!! This was on my bucket list and worth every single penny!

This is a really awesome hike! It is very strenuous heading up, but the views are amazing throughout. There are several switchbacks. We took our time taking breaks along the way. We each packed 3 liters in our camelbacks, which I recommend bringing. We headed out on the hike about 9:30 am and it was 37 degrees. I was wearing several layers, which I had to remove along the ascent and had to put them back on at the top. We arrived at the top at noon and there was about 20 people up there. We brought lunch and spent about 45 minutes at the top enjoying the view and the three chipmunks running around up there. After this hike, we feel we are definitely ready for Angels Landing now.
