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.

Quick climb to great view.

Just did this hike! Not anyone else on the trail which was great too. Definitely a fun trail with some rock scrambling and cooler temps. Didn’t see any signs but we just dropped right down into the wash and followed it all the way up. Everyone on Mount Carmel highway just passes it up or parks and heads to Canyon Overlook. Great spot to get away from people.

Great hike to do with a dog in Zion. Right along the river most of the way so we were able to go down and cool off multiple times. Parking at the visitor center is a nightmare though! Can’t take the shuttle with a dog.

Perfect little hike along the creek to the waterfall. Pretty easy to get to but far enough away from the crowds. We swam at the waterfall and had the place to ourselves the whole time we were there.

Great little hike to a waterfall! We did this trail in the afternoon labor day weekend while the park was packed with visitors and we only saw two other groups of hikers while out there. You can slide down the rocks under the waterfall into the pool below it. It was a little weird getting there but just follow the creak until you get to the waterfall (left side of the creek seemed the easier way of getting up there; right side was a lot of rock hopping and climbing). There are is a pond about 100 yards before the waterfall that you can jump into from the cliffs (8-10 ft. jump and water is pretty deep in the middle but check first!)

I would say this is one well kept secret of Zion NP! After hiking Angel's Landing, this hike was perfect to cool off in the summer heat. It is an easy hike, although the trail is not very well marked. We hiked here two days in a row, the first day was during the busiest part of the day and I kid you not there was a family of 30 people all screaming and jumping off of rocks (not so fun). The next day we hiked here much earlier and it was just us, enjoying the beautiful view of the canyons from above the waterfall. I would definitely recommend this hike to anyone who wants a break from the Zion crowds!

Awesome spot. Beautiful views and the puppers loved it! Just watch out for bikes if you are walking your pup because the turns are sharp and people were riding fast.

Definitely worth it! Less known and less crowded than the other hikes. Saw a great herd of bighorn sheep on the way. A great place to cool off with some fun rock climbing and rocks to jump off of into the pools.
