Paved path with lots of areas to walk down to the river. We went Dec 12th and it wasn't too crowded. Great way to see the beginning of the narrows and looking up all you see is canyon walls. There was also dirt paths by the river you could walk but you do have to come up to the paved path at some points. We also saw the dipper bird! Very beautiful and peaceful hike, easy and wheelchair assable.

We went Dec 11 and drove the scenic drive on the 13th. Not super crowded but they do have some road work by the zion lodge. Bonus tip: another great drive is to enter the park's tunnel through the east entrance of the park!

We went Dec 12th, there wasn't a lot of people but middle and upper pool is closed. We saw two waterfalls and it was very muddy/slippery at the pools. We also saw deer and turkeys while on our way in! Definitely a great hike.

This area has smaller parking than other trail heads. Short and steep but overall it took us around 30min in and out. We went Dec 13th and the trail was wet, not many people.

Not an experienced hiker and this trail was a perfect challenge. Took us around an hour and 50mins to complete. We went Dec 12th and there was a little mud in higher elevation, a little slippery. Loop is shorter than we thought, you can skip this and still see watchman point overlook.

One of the hardest but great scenery on the top of mountain.

Absolutely breath taking!

Great easy hike. We ended up making it in 1 hour and 40 Mins out and back. Definitely recommend for a quick beautiful walk by the river

This hike is out of the main canyon and has excellent views. Combined with Deertrap it makes for an incredible day of hiking.

There aren't many trail markers in Zion wilderness so be sure to download and have a paper map for backup and make note that stave spring is off east rim trail but sometimes it isn't flowing. Check at the park ranger station beforehand!

Perfect hike for after you've done Angel's Landing in the morning. Easy out and back trail with beautiful up canyon views. Do yourself a favor and take the dry creek bed "shortcut" on your way back to the Visitor's Center.

This hike was everything everybody said it would be, and more. Perfect weather and trail conditions.

Fun and easy hike while connecting into hidden canyon. Made a nice day combining scrambling, hiking, scenic views and some off-trail adventures if combine these two hikes.

Great views! Unfortunatly for us, we have to avoid last sector by icy.
For me one of the best perspectives.

This place is beautiful!! A must see.

Most exhilarating hike ever!

Beautiful view from the top! Well worth the effort. My then 7 year old was a little nervous about the narrow top portion of the hike, but she toughed it out and wasn’t scared once we were at the wide and mostly flat top of the peak.

Pretty trail with decent elevation gain. I went on a rainy, misty day, so I didn’t quite get the views. But it was still a nice hike. Easy to follow and a good workout for a shorter hike.

Easy paved hike to the lower Emerald Pool. The Trail to the upper pool was closed. I went on a rainy day so there were two waterfalls at the lower pool. It’s pretty, but not quite as memorable as some of the other Zion hikes. Good for a rainy day though as it’s not really a hike for views/vistas.

We hiked AL on Dec. 1st. 2018. We could not have asked for better weather. The condition of the tral was excellent. I would recommend checking the forecast, have good hiking shoes or boots and bring plenty of water and protein. Bars/bananas etc. The view from the top and also along the way is phenomenal. Cheers.

Made the best of the Emerald Pool and waterfall since the others were closed. A good walk, on mostly pavement, that almost anyone could do. Beautiful views all around you along the way.

beautiful hike, way too crowded though. Very easy, and paved. Watch out for the squirrels. They make it impossible to stop for a snack :-)

Nice walk up to a watchman point but lower down viewpoint than many of the others in Zion but still get some good views. Easy trail to follow and fairly well trafficked. Would recommend if you want a nice moderate walk in Zion but not life changing.

Nice short walk along the river. Accessible for wheelchairs as fully pathed. Is very heavily trafficked. If want to go far into the narrows you can hire waterproof boot and trousers from the visitor centre for the next day.

Amazing rewarding hike to angels landing, with the 360 views at the top making the uphill struggle worth it. Is strenuous with Steep incline to the top with lots of switchbacks and with the final kilometre having chains to help up to the top of angels landing along a steep ridge. Definitely not for those scared of heights. Took us about 2 hours to get to the top but took plenty of rest stops along the way and about an 1.5 down. To get to trailhead there is shuttle bus service as the road is for shuttle bus only but buses come every few minutes and run until after sunset. The trail was very busy even in mid November.

Really beautiful hike. Moderate in terms of the physical effort. Hard if you’re scared of heights.
