Super fun hike! Beautiful views, lava rock formations, red rock summits, and super easy trail.

as has been said it is poorly marked on the trail and on this app as well, if you stop where the trail as marked on the app is you wouldn't reach the canyon walls. gotta keep walking

Amazing but it’s probably closed by now we found two owls nest in

This is a great hike for beginning to intermediate hikers. Though rated "easy" the stairs and climb at the end up to the cave is a steep slog. So be prepared with plenty of water. The walk through the cottonwoods is beautiful. The lava rock formations along the way make for some great scenery. It's a full 2 miles to the cave and 2 miles back, though the app lists it a little shorter.

Great hike! A couple of challenging areas but worth the view!

The views could not be better. The first mile and a half is forgettable but after that was enjoyable, fun, and soul inspiring. First part is mostly rock and dirt, then dirt and sand, then slip rock, and then mostly sand to the overview of Ivins and the lower Snow Canyon. If you plan on doing an out and back be in good shape or make sure you have plenty of time, probably both!

One of the best hikes in southern Utah and a great alternative if you want to skip the crowds at zion! BEAUTIFUL and a fairly easy hike that makes it enjoyable and not too hard!

The cave is awesome! Kids loved seeing lizards and birds.

Beautiful trail! Mostly walking through wash and rocks. can get tricky in some areas, but fairly smooth going. went with my daughter and she enjoyed climbing while I was fine reading on a rock and watching... so definitely something for all skill levels.

Nice fun hike. There’s some pretty views along the way and the cave is beautiful. It’s good night hike because the view of the city lights is stunning. Good trail run!

I’ve done this hike several times in the past year, and I absolutely love it. I always bring my dog with me and he seems to love it more than I do. The trail is rocky, but not too steep. The top is absolutely breathtaking.

The trail is not that exciting but the ending view is breathtaking. Perfect trail to bring dogs and older children. Last year, we took our 5 and 8 year old boys. The well worn trail ends at the cliff but you can walk along the cliff to get different vantage points. It’s one of those unreal vistas that feel like you are standing in a painting. One of my favorites in Southern Utah for sure.

Definitely my favorite hike. I got bored at school yesterday so I ditched to go on a I hike. I ended up doing this one with my dog. Even though I do this hike all the time, it is still one of the prettiest views I’ve ever seen at the top. The entire city of Ivins is laid out before you like a patchwork quilt. It most definitely is one I’ll be repeating for years to come.

I for some reason had a heck of a time navigating this trail. It is not marked. And that’s fine, not everything has to be marked, just make sure you really know where you are going before you head out, because it would be very easy to get lost or cliffed out in this area. The vortex is really cool though. I went in early September and it was over 100 degrees, no shade, so make sure to bring sun protection and water.

Amazing hike, view is well worth it! Just make sure to wear some good shoes or hiking boots, the trail consists of some real rocky terrain

This hike shouldn’t be rated at hard. Trail not always clearly marked but you can take the riverbed as well. At the end it can be a bit tricky and steep when you go to the end of the canyon. Absolutely beautiful views and this trail can always be made more challenging by climbing the surrounding rocks.

Great hike. Very easy with beautiful views. Can be a bit more challenging by climbing the rocks that surround the valley. Can co to us beyond the vortex for fabulous views of the ravine.

Great for kids, mine are 6 and 8 and did really well navigating the trail. Loved the cave at the end. It was worth the cold and wind we encountered the day we went.

What a view! Very pretty hike. It is calm and peaceful hiking out to the point. There are small to medium sized rocks the 1st mile and a half. And it is pretty sandy right near the end to the point. Love the view. Would do it again and would love to trial run. Would be super hot in the summer.

Really cool but super hard to find the huge bowl on top, hiking only on sandstone.

Awesome - just lightly snowed and rained which created an amazing setting. Loved it!

Great trail to take your dogs, but make sure they are on a leash when on top of the Overlook.
