Great hike. Strenuous, but worth the effort. Did it in early December and temps were perfect. A little muddy/snowy at the top, but nothing a good pair of hiking boots can’t handle. Went through about 1.5L of water, completed in about 4hr 20min (stopped at the top for 20-30 min).

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.

Mild hike with exquisite views - quick 2 hours to complete full trail with stops.

Most exhilarating hike ever!

This hike is awesome - very easy to follow and very little elevation gain with amazing views. However it was really crowded just before sunset on a cold December day, so I bet it’s crazy on a nice summer day. The views are amazing though!

This hike is fantastic. Pretty strenuous, but the payoff is amazing. The views cannot be beat. There are some steep dropoffs, but the trail is wide enough and it’s nice to have the mountain on one side of you. Every part of this hike is jaw-dropping. Echo Canyon is so cool and the views from the top are breathtaking. Did this in early December and the cool air was very welcome! There was snow but only at the very top on the last flat stretch. A must do hike!

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.

Great hike over looking the Zion canyon and angels landing. I would have to say this was my favorite hike compared to angels landing b fuse you are at a high elevation see everything

October 2018- this hike is definitely a must do! We started at about 745 AM. Every turn had stunning views. We took so many pictures. The overlook was my favorite in the region. We saw chipmunks at the top. It took us 4 hours and 15 minutes. Don’t miss out on this hike!

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

The whole way up to the ”Observation Point“ hast great views and interesting sceneries. The big reward for the ascent is the perfect view up and down the main canyon of Zion NP.

Favorite hike in Zion

on The Watchman Trail

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 walk with great views over Zion canyon. Definitely worth the many switchback and long uphill climb. The trail is really easy to follow. It took us 2 hours to get to the top and just over an hour to great down. Would advise to head out early to beat the crowds, also the shuttle bus is only way to get to trailhead and back but they come every few minutes with first and last bus times varying depending on the time of year. Toilets are at the trailhead.

Nice short trail with great overlook of Zion. Was very busy trail even in mid November. Also limited parking but there is some alongside the road, but this was also nearly full up.

Perfect hike for kids and older parents. crowded though so go earlier in day rather than later.

A crowded but short hike with huge rewarding views at it's stopping point.

One of my favorites in Zion. This trail gives you a variety of scenery and the end point gives you one of the best views in the park.

Perfect easy hike to get a taste of Zion. Very crowded though.

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.

last min hike to see the sunset. im glad i did it!

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.

Heavily trafficked; however the view at the end and near the end is awe-inspiring

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

Boring. Easy.
