We took the Kayenta trail from the Grotto bus stop towards the Emerald pools. The trail was pretty easy going, but the views both up and down the canyon were pretty amazing. This trail is definitely worth the time to explore.

This is a very short trail, but it goes to an interesting phenomenon in the park. I read that the water that weeps from the wall started it's journey about 12,000 years ago. It has worked it's way down through the sandstone until it hits a layer it can not penetrate and so it comes out of the wall. There are some great views of Angels Landing and down the valley. Worth a quick detour.

Hidden Canyon trail is a great short hike that provides everything you could ask for in exciting experiences with great views. After climbing up the first first part of the switchbacks from the Weeping Rock parking lot, the Hidden Canyon trail takes off to the right. A few more tight switchbacks and you are now ready for the fun of navigating the rock ledges with the chains. Finally you are in the canyon and being amazed by the height and beauty of the rock. It is like having three different experiences in one hike.

This was a beautiful outlook spot! Really easy hike for my two and seven year old. A little steep but short. The color of the rocks when the sun was lower in the sky was gorgeous and the sun shone on the canyon that late so it wasn’t too cold of a hike. Seeing the water deep out of the rocks and shower down on us was fun and my kids loved it!

Super easy. Awesome hike with a great view at the end...although it was windy when we went so it got a little chilly up at the top.

The views are amazing ! Well worth it.

I actually liked the view here better than Angels Landing. And it wasn’t as crowded.

Super short trail but mostly upward. Some drop offs on the side but only once or twice. Great place to watch the sunset but get there early for a good spot if you plan on takin g pictures. Would definitely do again.

fun hike !!!

Wow, what a great hike! We saw NO ONE the entire hike. Very difficult to find the trail head - had to ask the ranger manning the tunnel booth. Several fun obstacles along the way. If you want to avoid the crowds and hike up an off the path canyon with some beautiful scenery, this is a good one.

Great short hike with a nice view at the end. Very busy, however.

Super easy. We went later in the evening and sat under the rock. It was like sitting on a porch on a rainy day watching the sun go down. Very peaceful

Great hike - we had 5 little ones (ages 5-7) in tow and there are some mildly hairy parts but overall the entire group loved the hike and the views!

Such a great hike! Not too difficult, beautiful terrain, spectacular views, good for kids (maybe 7 and up). Don't miss the parking lot! If you're approaching from the west....turn right immediately out of the tunnel! It's a little difficult to turn around if you miss it and you can't get into the lot if going the other direction; you'll have to park along the narrow road. Shade is scarce so go in the morning if it's summer.

Super easy trail. First hike we did in Zion in October 2017. Views are astounding.

Great easy trek if you are visiting Zion in the off season and still want to get a great vista without the snow climbing. Very easy hike in about half a mile with a fun bridge to cross and a jaw dropping scenery once you reach the end. It’s about a mile round trip, good easy activity.

If you're doing the east rim to observation point I would save this for on the way down! Quick hike, fun adrenaline kick for those not afraid of heights.

Fun hike! Not a park maintained trail but TH is marked. No people! Quiet except for running stream.

One of my favorite “trails” in Zion’s. Don’t get too stressed about following a path, just follow the pools and enjoy the unmaintained bliss that is “Many Pools”

This trail is so beautiful so much different terrain. Longer than a mile round trip probably 1.5 but easy!

This is by far one of my favorite hikes I've ever done. However you need to time it right, this is one of the more popular hikes in the local area so sometimes there are long lines to get up and down the ladders.

I loved this hike. It's fairly short but fantastic views especially during sunset, and a little treachery which adds to the appeal. We did it in a snow storm and felt pretty safe.

The walk up was very slippery. With as many people as they have walking this short hike I would think they could at least shovel this off. The views were nice.

Short hike with beautiful views at the end. Fairly easy for all ages.

Quick, easy hike. Interesting one with lots of variances. Great view

Fun little hike with a lot to see. Did this hike at the spur of the moment on our way out of the park. It was an easy trail but don’t take it for granted. We had already changed our shoes and wished we had our hiking shoe back on. Very cool rock formations up at the observation area.

We added this short trail on to our day after we did Angel's Landing. It snowed today but it made for a wonderful experience. The hike was an easy but beautiful hike. We are glad that we were able to see it.

I love the view, just too short. It’s easy, not hard.

Really crowded but nice easy trail

Took this trail up and continued onto the Kayenta trail. Very beautiful and an easy walk. I even did it with my 10 month old in his jogging stroller. Handled the bumps and rocks just fine. The inclines weren’t a problem either. A few parts we had to lift the stroller up and down some rocky steps. But didn’t slow us down at all. Will definitely do it again.
