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

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

Easy. Good to do on a day when you wanna do a bunch of stuff. Pretty

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!

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!

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!

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!!!!

This hike did not disappoint! started at 9 am and finished by 430, but we really really took our time. the weather was gorgeous and our hiking boots and smart wool socks were fine for the hike. perhaps bring an extra pair of socks or get neoprene if youre worried. this time of year the water didnt even touch our ankles. be prepared to climb and navigate
the hike is not too difficult but definitely is technical. also, be prepared to work your butt off when Climbing back out.

one of my favorite hikes ever

Another wonderful hike in Zion. This was a long day hike. We felt the warnings that came with this hike might have been overkill. “Route finding required” basically just means there isn’t a paved path; there’s multiple paths braiding both sides of the river. Other than the hike in and out of the valley, the hike is not challenging, but it is still a long day.

The subway was rad, and a main reason for visiting Zion. It’s a must do trip if you can get a permit.

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.

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.

I read that the rock fall was in the chains section. My question is can you hike up until this section and stop? Love this part of the trail and will be there November 19! I assume you can at least get to the trail split to observation point but I would like to continue to the right direction before the “chains.”

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!

Such a fun trail!! Well graded, great views, lots of interesting rocks and a variety of vegetation.

Great hike, great views.

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.

Definitely wouldn’t rate this trail as hard. I’d say its more like moderate. The hardest part is climbing back up the steep canyon, took a few stops to catch my breath. Bring water shoes and water socks makes it a bit easier on yourself. We had water leggings also but did not wear them. We didn’t get into the water at the end to see the water fall as it’s October and it was too cold. Bring snacks, a good pair of hiking shoes to hike in then bring something water proof to change into. If you are debating on bringing your professional camera you can it will be safe make sure you have a dry bag for extra safety. We did this hike late as we drove that morning 4 hours to get there and also had a difference in an hour in the time change. We began around 1130 which the ranger said we are starting off late after picking up permits, and we got out around 530pm. It was cold but we layered and were ok

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!

Tough hike, but if you pace yourself and come prepared, it makes it better. The views are amazing all along the trail. Definitely recommend doing this one.

This hike gives you everything that Zion has to offer. It’s a pretty challenging hike physically but the views are stunning. We did Angel’s Landing the day before and found it really cool that you were literally looking down at it on this hike.

This is a unique hike. It is beautiful and worth the hike. I would definitely recommend the shoes pants and walking sticks.

Life changing. Will definitely be doing it again. Leave in the morning to beat other hikers to the peak.
