Very crowded and a bit hard to get to, but enjoyable due to its short hike length. You have to strategize your parking while coming down towards the tunnel (not away from the park). We parked off the shoulder about .25 miles north of the trailhead. My husband carried our 8-month old in a front carrier and she loved it. We shouldn’t have left at 10 am in July heat though! Nursed the little one under the cool rock covering about halfway up. The lookout at the top is nice! Gave us something enjoyable to do since we couldn’t get shuttle tickets to get up the scenic route. We used hiking sticks and were glad we had them on a few sandy patches of slick rock. Wear sturdy shoes!

Very well-built trail. My husband carried our 8-month old in a front carrier and she loved it. We shouldn’t have left at 1 pm in July heat though! Bring extra water and perhaps shade covering for little ones as there is not much shade at all. The lookout at the top is nice for a different view of Zions. We used hiking sticks and were glad we had them on a few sandy patches of slick rock.

Low water level and some difficult scrambling at the end to get there. Beautiful hike and waterfall.

Great at sunset!

Great for a walk or bike ride. River access points along path. 6 July 2020 - apparently there is some bacterial investigation occurring related to the river water. Swimming in the river was not recommended.

Fun, easy to moderate hike. Great views into the park. Lots of families and all different ages hiking this trail. We hiked this one back in June 2020. Started around 8am, trail is well marked and pretty short. Go early before the sun is blazing hot!

No matter how hot, you can jump off at any point on the trail to cool off in the Virgin River.

Good trail for the early morning. Nice views of Springdale, UT and the rest of Zion NP.

Shallow pools to chill. Can go farther if you go a bit higher over the canyon to get over the small waterfall area.

Cute trail through a little slot canyon. Pretty shady until you get through the slots. If you go past the slots there isn’t much. Cool tunnel under the road too. We saw no one else on the trail and the kids 13 and 15 enjoyed it.

Definitely try to do earlier in the day to avoid the heat (and maybe some people... this trail gets packed!).

Very busy hike. Be prepared for crowds. Recommend having a stick for stability during all the river crossings. Beautiful and the water is refreshing in the heat.

I did this a combo with Lonely Peak and Nippletop (why aren't these on AllTrails?!). My 5 star rating is based on the combo, just Separation would be a basic 3* hike. I used Joe's Guide to Zion for this combo description, however his time estimates are WAY off. I got to the top of separation point in 30 minutes, but Joe's Guide says 3 to 5 hours?! This was not a difficult summit, at the top there is a little 10' high climb (class 4 I suppose) but nothing scary. After summitting it's an easy descent down the slickrock and then up the Lonely saddle. Up to Lonely there are some sandy sections and then some loose rock but not treacherous by any means. After descending Lonely and going back up the Separation Saddle, descend down the saddle and shortcut over (minor bushwhacking but use game trails) to arrive at the East-West wash and then take that West up into the Nipple Top slickrock bowl. As described in Joe's Guide, take the drainage to the north/northwest up to the ridge. There were a couple sketchy sections but I think that was because I strayed right of the sandy drainage to the slickrock, which was steep in a couple spots. On the descend I found it much easier. Once on the Nippletop ridge it's an easy traverse across, then a sandy ascent. When you hit the first vertical cliffband, stay LEFT and then get on a ledge and it's an easy climb up. I misunderstood Joe's Guide and went right and climbed up a slightly more sketchy climb. Once you hit the plateau walk across/up the sand and then when you hit the final summit block, contour to the right (west) as Joe's Guide talks about to then climb up to the actual summit at the south tip of the summit block. For times, was about 30 minutes to top of Separation Point, another 30 minutes to top of Lonely, then about 1 hour 15 min from top of Lonely to top of Nippletop, and about 45 min back to car. However, I am a pretty fast hiker.

Is there a 10 star rating? We found this to be an amazing introduction for our 5 kids to hiking. Never found the official hobbit hole but there were so many amazing things—cavern formations, rock climbing, skinny cavern paths—and sights that we forgot all about actually looking for it. We have 5 kids, 10 down to 4 year old twins and they all had a wonderful time with no problems getting through it at all. If you have a family of younger kids, this is a MUST! We called it the Narrows for kids, and it made our trip! Things to consider: The entrance was a bit nebulous. We went down a trail to the south side, and found a tunnel at the bottom leading back towards the north, under the rod and back up to the road, which is how we went back up once we finished. Lost of sand and lots of rock. Very few people on the trail, and those that were, were adults who turned back, seemingly because they wanted a more in their hike. Final thought, an awesome hike for those with imagination!

Lots of fun. Definitely a morning hike. If you go later than 8 or so you get blasted with sun. No shade. Greta views. You can watch the sun come up and hit the peaks around you.

Fun short hike with beautiful pools and a small waterfall at the end. There is a bit of bouldering just before the falls but we managed just fine with our four boys 3, 7, 10 and 12.

Not an easy hike after 8 am. Very crowded, as well. View is great at top.
