    good hike; a bit more exposed to the sun (and hotter in the pm) than the Gunnison Route. Also less scree/talus than Gunnison, but more loose dirt and packed dirt covered with small/medium sized pebbles that can sit you down in a hurry. as of 5/16/18, all snow/ice is long gone and the walk is quite dry. roughly 1:45 down and the same time back up. the bottom has some great sunning/relaxation spots, so plan to spend some time down there before slogging back up. you can filter nice cold water straight from the river for a great refresher.

    great dayhike; definitely sketchy footing in some areas with plenty of scree and talus fields. combined with the poor footing, the grade is steep enough to provide good entertainment even for fit people.

    Good views; well marked with cairned as of early May 2018. Pretty exposed - was very windy while I was up there despite very limited ground winds in the valley. A nice half-day hike for some good views. Not so sure that the views up top are necessarily "better" than those on the rim trail, but def more expansive.

    Very well-cairned trail (as of early May 2018) that starts to get scenic a mile or so in. Should really be rated moderate, as none of the incline is very steep and the overall gain/length is quite...moderate. Definitely bring plenty of water in summer, as the entire hike is very exposed.

    Trail sporadically offers some gorgeous views; otherwise, it's a lot of forest walking. But the gorgeous views really are gorgeous, and the trail is much less crowded (particularly the further south you go).

    As of 4/28/2018, all of the creek/wash crossings were well signed with cairns, and in general, the trail is very easy to identify. It's not always as easy to follow because of the inordinate number of dead falls across the trail and wash outs. I also heard from another hiker that the Agua Canyon connector has been covered by landslide, even though NPS advised him it was clear.

    This was a very tough day hike without a car shuttle because the Rainbow PT tour shuttle is the only shuttle that goes out to Rainbow Point and it only picks up at stops north of Sunset Campground (i.e., you can't park at Bryce Point and board the tour there). It requires reservations (really) and leaves at only 9am and 1:30, taking about an hour to reach Rainbow. During April and May, the last regular shuttle picks up from Bryce at 5:52, meaning you have 8 hours to cover 21 miles and roughly 5k of cumulative elevation gain. This window is not helped by the fact that NPS appears not to have maintained the trail (other than the cairns, which may not have even been them) for YEARS. The number of deadfalls, washouts, and looming snags was shocking for a trail that has such numerous, easy access points for maintenance and is the sole trail for over half the park. This is especially true south of the Yellow Creek sites. Amazing considering the tiny amount of trail in the park. Basically it seems that NPS doesn't care about access to the park south of Bryce Point and is only serving auto tourists and casual hikers, who are far more likely to simply hit the tiny amount of trails in the north. Shame on the BCNP superintendent. Completely misplaced priorities or sheer laziness, it's inexcusable either way.

    Wall Street is currently closed off. They claim it's monitored via camera, but I have reason to doubt that (or at least the efficacy of such monitoring). Queens Garden is still beautiful in itself.

    Great views, obviously, but the crowds, proximity to parking lots, etc. ruin what could be a special trail. Very easy walking. Well suited for people who consider established campgrounds as being "outdoors" or who cannot descend below the rim and climb back out; there are a multitude of easy bailing points via shuttle stops.

    Gorgeous hike; started from Fairyland Point at around 8am in late April, worked clockwise and saw very few people till I neared the Rim Trail. It'd be easy to blaze through the very well-trodden path, but this is definitely one hike that deserves some awestruck strolling.

    Beautiful, if a bit crowded. The "hard" label is a bit misleading - any regular hiker looking for a bit of challenge will want to tie this together with Queen's Garden, Navajo, and either Fairyland or some of Under the Rim.

    Completed this route via East Rim Trail, tagging on Cable Mountain - much of the hike was not that scenic, but the final views are epic. They look down on Zion Canyon, including an awesome view of Angels Landing. Much less crowded than any of the regular Zion Canyon routes - saw maybe a dozen people all day. Note the route from E Rim is ~20 miles round trip, ~23-24 if you add Cable Mountain.

    As of 4.18.2018, significant routefinding is required above the wash, as cairns are few and far between (and not always "correct"). Also, a couple locals recommended an ascent from the main wash that begins just past the fork noted in this AllTrails route - go a couple minutes beyond the tree-marked fork noted in this AllTrails route and you'll see a very sandy wash, maybe 3'-4' wide, on your right. This will lead you up to the bottom of the bowl, from whence you can link up with the AllTrails route. This ascent avoids the class 4 scramble and is generally much less sketchy than the route recommended by the AllTrails GPS. Be mindful of cryptobiotic soil.
