3 bc this is just for the river walk, but 5 for the narrows. Bottom-Up isn’t an option to review on this app. A previous trip I did the river walk bc my friend wasn’t a big hiker plus the conditions borderline that time of year. The paved HC accessible route just not for me and wasn’t at all a good impression of what Zion has to offer. The longer harder hikes are a game changer for those capable and willing to work a little. Anyways this was one of 7 back to backI hikes I did in a 6 day period between Bryce and Zion. I rented gear and at this time of year there’s not a crowd in the river (and Subway permit odds extremely high if you do a two day gear rental). A few times you have no option but to be waist deep so the full drysuit was reassuring even though many times I was too warm. Walking stick very helpful to test depth and determine direction of walking or at times when the extra sturdiness helpful bc of the current.

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 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.

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 trail is a moderate to gradual climb up many levels of large outcropping rocks . After a rainy day the water is beautiful but it will be a bit muddy...

Makes a nice day for an easy hike, incorporating scrambling and some adventure if combine weeping rock.

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.

This place is beautiful!! A must see.

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!

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.

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 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.

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.

Very cool to see. crowded but worth it.

Peaceful hike at the end of the day. We did it in the evening and were given quite the show by Zion. The sun setting on the Watchman Mt was beautiful.

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

Easy, paved walk in Zion National Park that goes along the river. Pretty views. There are lots of better trails in Zion, but this is the only one that allows dogs, so it’s the best trail for us dog lovers!

In late November, we were only able to make it about a half mile down this trail due to standing water, but the section we saw was beautiful. In dryer portions of the year, this would definitely be worth the hike. Sections are a little more challenging for younger kids - it’s not so much a trail as much a dry-ish wash, but doable if you take your time.

We visited in late November and this little trail was one of our favorites. It’s not particular well marked, and you have to scramble across the stream on rocks a couple of times to make it all the way to the waterfall, but definitely worth it. Very quiet and beautiful. We had kids along (ages 5-10) and a couple sections were more challenging for them, but if you take your time you’ll be fine.

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

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

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.

Easy trail to do with kids, just bring waterproof shoes with good traction.

MEH. Uneventful, compared to other water features. Muddy trail and a lot of traffic. The views are all looking UP.

Our family loved this hike. We have 4 kids, from 12-3 and they all had a great time. It kind of has it all: slot canyons, places to explore, a tunnel, water to splash in and heiroglyphs...we even saw a large herd of Bighorn Sheep above us. All of this in just a mile or two. After parking at the two port-o-potties (.8 miles after second tunnel was perfectly accurate), we headed east and down the hill into the wash. We walked mostly east for probably 1/2 mile before it turned north, then it wound east again. Right after we started heading east again, we noticed a trail(ish) heading north and didn’t have to go far to see the tunnel that took us under the road. We could’ve kept going east though and I’m sure that would’ve been fun too. Turning north to go under the bridge took us past the heiroglyphs (along red cliff wall) and up (there’s a large curved, smooth rock you have to scale) to the pools. Such a fun, diverse and beautiful area to explore and we didn’t have to share it with anyone!
