This trail is a moderate to gradual climb up many levels of large outcropping rocks . After a rainy day the water is beautiful but it will be a bit muddy...

Peaceful hike at the end of the day. We did it in the evening and were given quite the show by Zion. The sun setting on the Watchman Mt was beautiful.

Trail head is not marked. Park at Canyon Overlook parking. Take a look at my pics and/or my record and you will see a few pics to get your hike started.

This was SOOO fun. Many rock scrambles and a few technical areas to traverse. I am sure this will catch on in popularity soon....

If you are heading to Zion, this is a must hike short hike (took us 1.5hrs with 2 kids) Start here in the morning and hit up the other popular hikes after you are done.

Easy, paved walk in Zion National Park that goes along the river. Pretty views. There are lots of better trails in Zion, but this is the only one that allows dogs, so it’s the best trail for us dog lovers!

We visited in late November and this little trail was one of our favorites. It’s not particular well marked, and you have to scramble across the stream on rocks a couple of times to make it all the way to the waterfall, but definitely worth it. Very quiet and beautiful. We had kids along (ages 5-10) and a couple sections were more challenging for them, but if you take your time you’ll be fine.

Gorgeous! Didn’t see anyone else on the trail. I wouldn’t call this moderate, though. There are some more challenging spots that require some skill to navigate.

Our family loved this hike. We have 4 kids, from 12-3 and they all had a great time. It kind of has it all: slot canyons, places to explore, a tunnel, water to splash in and heiroglyphs...we even saw a large herd of Bighorn Sheep above us. All of this in just a mile or two. After parking at the two port-o-potties (.8 miles after second tunnel was perfectly accurate), we headed east and down the hill into the wash. We walked mostly east for probably 1/2 mile before it turned north, then it wound east again. Right after we started heading east again, we noticed a trail(ish) heading north and didn’t have to go far to see the tunnel that took us under the road. We could’ve kept going east though and I’m sure that would’ve been fun too. Turning north to go under the bridge took us past the heiroglyphs (along red cliff wall) and up (there’s a large curved, smooth rock you have to scale) to the pools. Such a fun, diverse and beautiful area to explore and we didn’t have to share it with anyone!

This is a canyoneering route that requires a permit from the Zion National Park Service. If the park service finds you in there without a permit you will be fined. The complete route also requires technical rappelling gear.

Pleasant, easy hike through some of the most beautiful scenery of Zion.

I would def consider this a walk instead of a hike. It’s such a lovely walk though! So peaceful to do in the evenings or mornings. It was a great cool down after a day of hiking other trails. Saw lots of deer and the views are great!

very nice trail. only saw 1 other family.

Really fun trail. We hiked it late October and it was a little difficult to navigate. We did have to climb over rocks in a tight space to get to the waterfall in lieu of getting in the cold water. This is a short but moderately challenging hike.

A lovely, gentle hike with drop dead gorgeous views all around! Follows the Virgin River, and crosses over it over bridges several times. A great warm up or cool down hike, or if you are just in the mood for something chill! There are several places with river access, and I enjoyed soaking my feet in the icy water after a longer hike earlier. Enjoy!

More of a “walk” than a hike. Flat and paved pretty much the whole way. But just like every other part of Zion, there are some great views.

Great! Especially since it had rained and there were many. many pools of water large and small. If you walk down from the parking area and follow the wash east, you are in the wash you will walk up. Today there were maples and oaks showing off their fall colors (beautiful). The wash goes through a tunnel under the road avoiding having to walk along the road. You do need to clamber up a bit, but that's what this one is all about. We met only 5 other groups. Considering how many folks were in the park, that was just about as good as one can expect.

This trail was so much fun! Yes, challenging around the rocks, but not impossible. I was wearing a dress and running shoes. It worked just fine.

This is a canyoneering route... thanks for saying so Alltrails....

Nice quick trail with a great waterfall at the end. However, navigating over the rocks was trickier than we thought, so not all of us were able to make it to the waterfall.

Great hike! No crowds, lots of water filled pools, as we just had three days of rainy weather! Only saw one tad pole, might be too late in the season. We did continue up the canyon until it got really difficult. Only saw two couples on our way out. Fun slick rock walking, not much of a defined trail to follow, some slot canyon walking, really cool.

The wait time to the shuttle was around 20mins and its awesome, the shuttle stops and many places and you can start your hikes, if you dont have time and just wanna see few viewing points this shuttle is the best way.

Amazing!! Hidden gem. We had it to ourselves and went down the rock water slide, swam in the pools and had a blast. We had small kids with and it was a lot to navigate but they did great we just went slow. So beautiful! Do be aware of flooding. It’s obvious flash floods get serious on this trail.

Beautiful hike. Make sure you hike to the end of the trail and see the funky water carved “circle room”.

Great National Park.

Nice short hike away from the crowd. We started at 7:30 am and only encountered another coupe on the way back. You’ll get a little sand workout.

Easy and quick hike, and a hidden gem! We did it after observation point, it was the perfect little hike to end our day. Beautiful, not a lot of people, and super fun!

What a great little hidden gem! If you’re taking the Zion shuttle, get off at Canyon Junction (stop 3) and walk up the side of the road away from the Visitors Center. This is an unmarked trail that starts at a parking lot just before the road turns into the series of switchbacks.

Follow the dirt path a short distance and you’ll start seeing some small boulders to navigate over. Once inside, you’ll see a beautiful little pool and waterfall that you’ll likely have all to yourself. It’s a quiet escape from the crowded park.

We did notice some cat prints, so keep an eye out for wildlife, especially early in the morning.

we found this to be one on the less crowded trails in Zion. A nice relaxing stroll actually.
