Zion Trails Map

Incredibly crowded trail, we even went late in the day and it felt like walking around Frontierland in Disneyland. Paths are paved and easily accessible for small children and strollers, virtually anyone. This is a heavily trafficked trail by a lot of non-hikers in jeans and loafers, not a lot of trail etiquette, so pack your patience. Views are nice but hard to enjoy. Swimming is not allowed even though several parents were allowing their kids to swim or bathe, not sure which.

Did this hike the afternoon we got intoZion. Not too hard but definitely worked up a sweat. Beautiful view and walking access from the visitors center.

Sad to see so many recent reviews saying it's too crowded to enjoy. When I was there in June 2016 it was crowded at the lower pool but the middle and upper pools were nice and we were treated to the sight of some deer drinking from them. They weren't emerald colored though, I suppose from people trying to swim in them.

short thou steep! worth it .

another amazing trail only you can find in Zion!!...just love everything about Zion National Park. will go back for sure.

lovely walk with a nice view...best of the whole family with little kids. love this trail.

Went up by Weeping Rock, and this is my favorite hike in the Zion National Park. Once you break off from the observation point path, the crowds disappear. This hike is truly beautiful and well worth it, and the views from the top are one in a million

A walking trail :)

A lot of people on this hike

An absolute blast with kids!!! Our girls are 6 and 9, they couldn’t stop smiling and laughing. Renting dry gear is a must. Try to go early in the morning to avoid crowds.

A ton of people and the pools weren’t that great.

We did this cute , easy trial about 7pm , was very peaceful. Not crowded at all. Super easy, like walk in the park. Very nice views of the river.

Loved this trail. It has a few switch backs and is at a pretty steady incline, however it does level off and I never felt exhausted or too out of breath. At the top is a wonderful panoramic view of the west side of Zion. I personally would stop at the overlook next time, because I felt like the loop at the end did not provide any views or anything that I hadn’t already come across at the overlook, but if you want more exercise go for it! Overall a wonderful and short trail. Took us roughly 1.5 hours round trip.

Good hike, not quite breathtaking like others at Zion, but still a great hike along the river.

great little trail with running water, birds and flowers. at the top is a wonderful view and a short loop that offers another view point and the curls around back to the top.

neat little walk, interesting to find out why/how the rock is weeping (info is on a placard right before you go up the stairs)

far and away our favorite hike of all National parks. Hiking poles are a great help along with neoprene socks, but all the other gear they try to sell you isn't necessary in my opinion. We bought $17 dollar water shoes from Wal-Mart that did the trick, so unless you expect to do alot of water hiking, cheaper can get the job done, plus you have something to keep as opposed to renting. be sure to go up about 2 miles to get to the better parts and begin to leave the masses behind.

We did this trail in the morning. The views were beautiful. The trail is rocky with dirt but no large rocks to climb up. It was busy but not overcrowded.
I found this trail doable and the Archaeology Trail which is listed ad easy not so much. The Archaeology Trail has a very steep, rocky downward incline. I watched someone go up but almost could not get down.
I would suggest walking sticks.
So I loved this trail! Wear your hikers use your walking stocks and go!

Loud crowded and not much to see

Short and steep hike and also had cool views out into the valley. This was easy for us and our daughter but is a steeper climb then expected. I did this after dinner so there were very few people, which made it nicer.

Wasn’t very impressed with this trail. The least favorites of the ones we did well in the park. Crowded and nothing exciting to see and just a paved trail.

Waterfall and upper pool were beautiful. We went early and it wasn’t too crowded. When we headed back down around 12:30 it was packed. My kids (3, 8, 10) had no problem doing this hike.
