Unbelievable hike. I’m a solo hiker and this was an extraordinary experience. It wasn’t difficult but not easy. It is strenuous due to the strength and flow of the running water. By the time I parked, it was 6:10am and the lot was full. I wore thick leggings, hiking socks and an old pair of hiking shoes (closed toe shoes will protect your feet). My trekking poles were a life saver, as well. Truly an amazing experience.

Beautiful hike. Highly recommend climbing to the top of Northgate Peaks East. No gear needed, just good hiking boots! Gorgeous view from the top.

Great first trail at Zion! Arrived at 730am and parked at lodge and 4 mile hike back to the trailhead as the parking lot back there was full. Water is cold but you get used to it. Definitely recommend hiking boots and stick or poles. Luckily we caught a ride back to our vehicle to save from the long walk back!

Did this hike two days ago with my 5 kids. they enjoyed splashing in the pools even if they were tiny and the views were beautiful. it was a nice length to challenge but not destroy us.

Not a good trail. It’s basically not marked and not fun to do. We turned around after 3 miles of stumbling into the right direction. Wouldn’t recommend - other trails are much better

A little uncomfortable because it's mostly through sand or over small rocks, but petroglyphs are always worth it. The glyphs are protected by a wood railing, which is how I spotted them.

I would recommend this to people who want a nice hike with a mild incline but no peak. It is a loop trail with many spots to take great pictures but it is not my favorite in the park. Due to COVID we had to park on highway 9 and walk up the scenic drive road and we started the hike at the court of patriarchs. It is long, but it is do-able in a little over 3hrs. There is a LOT of ankle deep sand along the trail making it difficult to walk quickly. GO LEFT like others tell you to do at the fork where the loop begins, you will thank yourself at the end.

Very very sandy all the way around. Lots of bugs. Beautiful view too, I took a ton of pictures. I saw some big lizards, turkeys and deers as well. Since the quarentine the actual beginning of this trail is closed so we had to park at the bus stop #4 instead of #5

We got to the scenic parking lot before 6am and waited for them to open it up. Ended up being the first of 10 to reach the summit. Chain section is still closed but if you’re in Zion this is a hard hike with good elevation gains and stunning views. It was busy but not overly so.

amazing hike. we lined up at 5:15 am and were 30th in line. Rangers said there's roughly 90 parking spots.

The boys loved this one. Right now there’s hardly any water in the pools. The poor tadpoles need to hurry up and grow before the water dries out. Not many cairns to mark the way but it’s not hard to figure out. The walk up the slick rock was marginally difficult in a few spots. Such a great hike

Loved it! Not too difficult, but enough to make it a great hike.

Well, I attempted to record my hike but I couldn’t see the map well on record. There isn’t a particular made trail for this (at least not one that I found) and we climbed some rocks and a tree branch to get to the final destination. It was worth it!!

this was a perfect start to our day in Zion. my 5 kids (12, 10, 8, 7, 5) all had a blast. the cool breezes and shade would have made it a nice afternoon hike as well.

Chain section closed

Highly recommend a hiking pole if you want to go all the way. Don’t wear sandals - trail runners and socks worked great. Awesome trail. The end is nothing special so feel free to turn around if you get really tired.

This was a great hike. Not your typical “hard” hike as it didn’t have much elevation gain, but it was very technical and took balance to make it through. We pulled through the park at 6AM on a Friday morning and were unable to get a parking spot at the trailhead, but able to snag a spot around the first bend off the side of the road. Definitely recommend the poles and rental shoes as they were a life saver. I also recommend a dry bag if you’re planning to make it to the spring. The water hit just a bit below my collar bone (I’m 5’6’’for reference), at the deepest point where the spring and cave were. Also, the canyon forks at the point where you hit Wall Street (to the right), but there’s also a slot canyon (to the left). Definitely recommend checking out the slot canyon if you have the upper body strength to hoist yourself up over a rocky wall.

This trail is pretty easy. The length it takes to do it is mostly due to the traffic on the trail. I saw many families with little ones as young as 3 on it. Views are worth it for the short time you spend working!

Loved this hike. We went early to avoid crowd and the heat. We got to see some mountain goats which was very cool. View was amazing.
