spectacular!

Epic views. I went end of Aug, in the afternoon, and was the only one on the trail. Easy and well-marked.

A word of caution to Canyonlands “newbs” such as myself- the trailhead is not marked from the road as Gooseberry or White Rim Trail. Look for the sign saying “Picnic/Hiking Trail” after Buck Canyon and before the Orange Cliffs Overlook (I overshot the turnout).

Very busy, scenery is nice. Expect waiting for shuttle back. Iconic sight Zion NP.

great hike, people are balancing rocks which is annoying, but a good hike even with little kids

easy hike, go in morning to avoid the heat and bring 2 liters water

the two miles to the end are longer than it'd seem. took about 2 hours, but beautiful trail. the beginning has the best views

Set Google maps to "false kiva." Could not find this trail. No cairns, no logs, nothing.

Balade facile et amusante pour les enfants (passages un peu techniques) pour bien finir la journée en sortant de Zion national Park par l'est. Arrêtez vous juste après le tunnel. Si le parking est plein, on trouve des places un peu plus haut le long de la route. Très beau point de vue sur la vallée une gros arrivé au bout du trail. Comptez une heure A/R.

Bucket list river hike into the narrows. Walking stick recommended, can rent them just outside park. Fun, wet + beautiful.

Crowded but epic

Sooooo many people....

A little scrambling at the top

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.

Usually nothing but a 5-star rater because, nature. But the fence is so far back you can’t see any of the fins that make up the “furnace”.... maybe I missed them as others seem to have had better experiences but not a lot of reward here. I’m sure the furnace is beautiful, wherever it is.....

The hike up to the Butte was fun for us but wouldn’t be wise for folks with knee/ankle issues. Views were disappointingly hazy in August 2018 from all the fires.

The best views in Island in the Sky, along with the White Rim overlook, and a very easy trail. Would definitely recommend.

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.

The view point is amazing. If I didn’t have heat exhaustion the day before, I would have gone into the fiery furnace (it’s not actually hot).

I did the spur to the Ancestral Puebloan granary. It was a moderate trail over sand and rock. It’s so worth climbing along the edge of the butte to see the granary.

I hiked part of this trail along the edge of the cliff. It’s beautiful and fairly easy. There’s just stairs every now and then.

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!

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.

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

A pretty good, relatively short hike. Great views from the top. Do wear boots with decent grip though, the scrambling sections are fairly short but definitely shouldn’t be done in sandals or non-grippy footwear.

An ok and pretty straightforward hike. Go to the second overlook, which provides slightly better views of the features. Kind of cool that the history behind the creation of the features is still being discovered. Overall though, happy enough to have hiked it once, would likely not do it again.

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.
