app said it was 4.4 miles, when we hiked it and recorded it. it was 5.2 miles.

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.

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).

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

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!

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

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.

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.

Trail head is not marked. Park at Canyon Overlook parking. Take a look at my pics and/or my record and you will see a few pics to get your hike started.

This was SOOO fun. Many rock scrambles and a few technical areas to traverse. I am sure this will catch on in popularity soon....

If you are heading to Zion, this is a must hike short hike (took us 1.5hrs with 2 kids) Start here in the morning and hit up the other popular hikes after you are done.

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!

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.

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.

Gorgeous! Didn’t see anyone else on the trail. I wouldn’t call this moderate, though. There are some more challenging spots that require some skill to navigate.

Fun trail in the brisk morning.

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.

Did it in august. Bring with you at least 3l water. The view is astonishing

One breathtaking view after another. Beautiful!!!
