A long huff up on one of the hardest ascents in the park, but the variety of geology, slot canyon fun, geologic variation, and astounding views are Zion at its best. Start early, bring lunch, and hydrate.

this is the hike that gives you want zion is all about. canyons and water. next time I would not rent gear. but yes for the colder people. yes it's fun,scenic.

Did it in august. Bring with you at least 3l water. The view is astonishing

One breathtaking view after another. Beautiful!!!

Short hike with a great view. Worth the effort.

This hike was a bit more difficult than expected. Not because of the elevation gain but because this IS NOT A MARKED TRAIL. You have to use your All Trails map and follow the red trail using the gps or you may get yourself in a tough spot. Having said that, this was an enjoyable hike and as long as you take it slow, very satisfying. My heart rate did get up to 175 on the last part. I ran up the last 50 yards. It's pretty steep. Loved it!

Hiked this trail veterans day. The gate was still open. parking lot says three forks tailhead, but it's for fifth hotsprings. there's a restroom in the Parking lot. come early. By 1 the Parking lot is crowded. I started at 10:30 and it was 28 degrees. Beautiful hike. lightly dusted with snow. springs were beautiful, not crowded and warm. trail is easy to find, but I had no cell service so be prepared. enjoy!

Phenomenal. Gate was still open as of 11/12/2018. No need for trekking poles. Small ups and downs, but nothing to terrible.

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

Boring. Easy.

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!

Great, pretty easy hike in November. It was more crowded than we expected for a Thursday in November. The water felt great. Several cows were in the area when we got to the springs (but not too close to the water, thank goodness!) Parking lot was over full when we got back to the trailhead after 1 pm.

Awesome hiking take good hiking shoes and water.

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!!!!

is the gate closed yet?

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.

Super fun trail 100% recommend

Road to trailhead was still open today. Beautiful but busy day. More than enough space in the hot springs for everyone. Excellent moderate hike.

is the road to the trailhead still open? I know they close it once the weather turns then it is closed til spring.

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.

Better than I expected!! Beautiful scenery every step of the way:))

Awesome scramble with an amazing view at the top. We followed a route description that roughly followed the GPS route mapped here. No technical climbing gear is required if you follow this route. The scrambling was rowdy at times (class 3-4) but never felt overly dangerous. Some of the climbing was up sturdy boulders and some was up steep slopes of sand and small rocks that were crumbling below us. After climbing the final "chimney" of the rock face, you reach a lovely flat plateau with petroglyphs before scrambling up the final few hundred feet to the summit itself. The view is incredible, with West Temple so close you could practically touch it. With a lengthy break at the summit and a relatively leisurely pace, the whole day took about 9 hours from the Chinle trailhead.

Did this hike later in the day. Barely made it back in time for the last bus, but it was worth it (took me about 3 hours round trip). Very few people on the trail! Only 4 other folks at the peak. The views were utterly spectacular. Definitely in my top 5 hikes!
