Nice accessible hike to a great lake. Great for beginners, the trail is a bit uninteresting along the way, but the lake is worth it.

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.

This is a short easy trail over sand and compacted dirt. There’s some scrambling (if you want) over rocks at the arch. It’s beautiful!

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

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!

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 beautiful...another tick on my bucket list

Only down fall was sooo many people. It would be nice if they took a pic in the arch and let some one else take some.

A special arch

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

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

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.

Easy walking trail though you might get a bit winded. We walked down to lower falls but could also see the upper falls. Fantastic view!! Worth it. Lower falls has a platform right at the falls so you can be at the edge and see the water go over, super cool!

Amazing hike! Would suggest to go as early as possible as the crowds for the first few kms take away from the hike a little bit.

A lot of people and hard to get pictures but a beautiful arch and view.

Great experience yesterday did this hike since Angels landing trail is still close but Planning of going back soon definitely a must do hike thru the river a little cold but so worth it !

Great hike, get out early to beat the crowds

The trail’s as packed as the splash mountain line at Disneyland, and for good reason—this place is beautiful and accessible.

Awesome trail ! Lots to see, great view of the lake. Does tend to be pretty wet and muddy at some points.

An interesting and unique experience. Trekking poles were useful, particularly in the rocky areas. Headed in around 5:30 pm and it was relatively empty. About 20 degrees cooler which was great on this 100 degree day! Highly recommend.

Great view and little traffic. Nice easy hike!

Korte wandeling vanaf de parkeerplaats, erg de moeite waard om ze van dichtbij te bekijken

Great family hike that included 6 adults with varying hiking experience and 6 kids ranging from 6-12. A little muddy in some spots but quite a nice trail. The lake was amazing however there were a lot of black flies closer to the water. We settled for lunch on one of the many large boulders set further back and enjoyed the scenery. It’s a little bit of a balancing act navigating close to the water as the rocks weren’t always stable. I’d do this hike again.

Great hike along and in the Virgin River

Awsome hike but too packed when we got there around 10. I would sugest getting on the 1st shuttle for this one. Got a little past the 1st fork, far less crowded up there.

Very short hike, but crowded. I came in early May and there was still quite a crowd.

Great Outlool

Very fun and pretty easy hike! A walking stick definitely prevented me from slipping and plunging into the water several times but the water was so refreshing and not too cold that I wouldn’t have minded it anyways! Only downside was the insane amount of people on the trail, I found myself constantly waiting on others to cross sections of the river which prolonged my hike quite a bit. After you hike about an hour up the river though the crowd thins out, making it much more enjoyable!

Easy hike and a unique arch. Time well spent.
