short and easy, but so much to see!

1/10/17 great scenary for sunset. quick and easy. parking can be limited. would recommend due to ice on other trails at Zion.

loves this trail!!! it is so unique! and cool!!! short and easy.

Unbelievable view when you get to the top. Main parking lot is hopeless, try going a bit ahead of tunnel to grab a roadside spot. The rocks may get slippery after rain/ snow. Very easy hike leading to an amazing end!

Nice and short trail, with spectacular views at the end. There are a couple dropoffs on the side of the trail, so be careful with your footing in a few places. There are 10 parking spots right at the end of the tunnel (if you're coming from the park), with some overflow parking further up the road. I'd recommend getting here early - we ran into a bit of a traffic jam when we were descending through some of the more narrow passageways.

Breathtaking scenery and views! An excellent choice for a beginners hike, short and easy. Quite crowded on a cold December day but fun :)

Fun, short hike with fantastic views! There's are quite a few dropoffs on the side of trail, so just be cautious with young children and those with a fear of heights. We saw more than one adult freaking out a bit about dropoffs.

Very short hike with a great view relative to the effort of the hike. Limited parking and was fairly busy in middle of the day.

Awesome short hike in Zion. View of Zion Canyon was nice. Took less than 30 minutes to reach the overlook. Not ADA accessible though. Limited parking. There are overflow parking down the road. You can also park alongside the Hwy that permits.

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 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!

fun short Trail. Make sure to follow the trail and not just the creek bed or you'll get off track. love the heart in the Rock at the end.

Easy hike especially on a cool fall day. Toadstool hoodoos are an a amazing sight. You get very close to them and you feel like you are on another planet. saw a lot of families with young kids. Also saw several dogs on the trail.

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.

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!

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

Heavily trafficked; however the view at the end and near the end is awe-inspiring

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

This is a heavily advertised, short hike right off of Hwy 89, so you are going to have lots of company. It's a short hike to some interesting stuff. You can wander around quite a bit in various directions, which I am sure is an ecological disaster, but that ship has sailed, so to speak. The hoodoos at Wahweap are more interesting, but you have to walk 4.5 miles to get to those, so this is a lot more accessible.

Nice short hike close to Kanab. There are a lot of ATV trails going off in all directions, and I was glad I had the map pulled up on the AllTrails app. GoogleMaps brought me to a small parking area right where Rt 106Q intersects with 106 near where 106 intersects with Hwy 89. There was a barbwire fence with a gate you could open and then I just walked straight up 106Q. It is sandy, and it is uphill, but really not that hard. I didn't climb around much once 106Q ended. About halfway up 106Q there is a .2 mile spur (I think it is 106R) that runs up to the base of the butte. You could for sure climb up quite a ways on the rocks there, not that I am recommending it.

On the way up, you are looking at the colorful butte, and on the way down you are looking at a panoramic landscape that goes on forever. It may not be the most spectacular scenery in the area, but it's still excellent.

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!

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!

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.

The views and surrounding areas of the toadstools was well worth the hike.

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