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!!

Boring. Easy.

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!

very nice trail. only saw 1 other family.

Cool and nice. Water is very urgent and fast. Fell down a couple times.

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.

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.

Short hike, but views are fantastic. Plus, the car ride up to and through the tunnel is worth doing by itself. If you’re going through the park, you’ll need a pass.

Gorgeous view! Don’t let the beginning climb scare you off, it’s totally doable.

The Park map calls this a moderate trail. There are rails throughout to help so to frequent hikers, this would be considered easy. There is a small wood bridge so if you have a fear of heights, probably not the best trail for you. The view is definitely beautiful all throughout though!

Great! Especially since it had rained and there were many. many pools of water large and small. If you walk down from the parking area and follow the wash east, you are in the wash you will walk up. Today there were maples and oaks showing off their fall colors (beautiful). The wash goes through a tunnel under the road avoiding having to walk along the road. You do need to clamber up a bit, but that's what this one is all about. We met only 5 other groups. Considering how many folks were in the park, that was just about as good as one can expect.

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

Nice trail. I would rate the hike Easy/Moderate. Very narrow at one point. Lots of great views.

I hope it opens back up soon. I hiked it in June of 2017. This is one of my favorite short hikes I’ve done.

Great little trail... Spent a week doing a lot of the areas trails.

The title of this hike is just for the paved walk before entering the canyon to wade through the river. This part is easy. Obviously the hike gets harder once you are wading through shin deep water which sometimes reaches waist deep or more depending on how far you go. In the fall for sure, I recommend renting shoes, socks, pants, and a hiking pole from an outfitter in Springdale as the water is cold and there is little sun. Anyone bothering to wade through the river should make it to wall street. It is the best portion of the canyon. It is not signed, so get a pamphlet from the outfitter. Access is via Zion's 40 minute shuttle bus ride. Parking is limited at the visitor center. Go early to avoid crowds and to be able to see where you are walking in the river.

All switchbacks. Those with a fear of heights may have difficulty at the top. Chains for the majority of the top, but a few spots where there are none, which makes for a more interesting time. Solid hike and not very far at all. Poles may have helped the knees on the descent.

Fun easy hike with great views! A must do if you’re coming past the tunnel on the north side
