    Josh Weiss reviewed The Zion Narrows Riverside Walk

    7 months ago

    Very unique and awe-inspiring! I recommend renting the canyoneering boots for warmth, especially after summer is over, but a good pair of draining trail shoes will also do the trick. We opted for the boots in October since the water was cold, and were very happy with that decision! Lots of fun wading up to thigh-height at times, and amazing walls around every bend. It is an out-and-back hike so you can stop when you want, we stopped just before Wall Street which we didn't know about, but hear that is where the canyon gets tightest and is most impressive. Anyone can do it, and if you do only 1 hike in Zion I'd suggest The Narrows! It is so unlike any hike I've ever done anywhere else in the world!

    My favorite hike in Bryce when combined with the Navajo/Queen's Garden loop! I was surprised at the difficulty of this loop due to all the ups and downs, you definitely work for the views, but being amongst all those hoodoos is absolutely spectacular. There are hundreds of spots for pictures, and you get away from the crowds doing the Peekaboo Loop, a nice change from the other loops. You will feel like you are on the set of Star Wars at times. Highly recommend it but bring plenty of water and allow more time than you'd expect.

    Josh Weiss reviewed East Rim Trail to Observation Point

    The best view in all of Zion! The trail is less heavily trafficked and maybe less well-known than it's sister Angel's Landing, but the views are better IMO. You gain 2100 ft of elevation from Weeping Rock parking area in about 4 miles, and are well above Angel's Landing at the overlook. You look directly down canyon in the most magical vista in maybe all of Utah - I actually proposed to my now fiancee at the top!

    The trek up is tough, its 2 miles of uphill along switchbacks, a short half mile respite through a wash, and then 1 mile more uphill along the mountain until flattening out at the end. While the trail has some steep dropoffs, most of the trail is wide enough that even those with a fear of heights can do it - just stay to the inside! The last half mile is through sand and clay, vastly different from the rock/concrete covering most of the trail. At the top there is a large area to rest and picnic before scampering back down. We did the hike up in 1.5 hours at a good pace, but you will feel it! We didn't make the spur trail to echo canyon, but we heard that was a nice extra mile if you have time!

    easy but underrated trail to Emerald Pools. Do it!

    First hike in Zion, and is a great start to the park. Very easy climb to all 3 pools, and I recommend hiking to each one. While the park says to use the Emerald Pools trail, it is actually much, much, MUCH prettier to hike up the Kayenta trail to the pools and come back down the Emerald Pools trail. The views down-canyon, especially at sunset, from the Kayenta trail are breathtaking and you don't get those on the Emerald Pools trail. This was a nice surprise and I wish Zion told people about this more!

    Josh Weiss reviewed Devils Garden Loop Trail with 7 Arches

    7 months ago

    The best hike in Arches! Certainly gets to be a bit challenging beyond Dark Angel if you go clockwise with some fun rock scrambling and edging along rock fins, but nothing anyone beyond a novice hiker can't accomplish. If you have a fear of heights you may want to stop at Dark Angel, or try to go counter-clockwise which has most of the "scary" stuff uphill instead of downhill. Lots of great arches to see, and we had no trouble following the cairns on the primitive section beyond Dark Angel. The first 3 miles or so is easy with most of the arches, the last 3 are more fun however! Definitely recommend doing this when in Arches!
