Hiked it on 12/12. Great weather, snow and ice all along the trail out to Observation Point. Climbed Observation Point from the floor back in September and wanted to try this route. Glad we rented a Jeep and definitely needed a 4x4 to get to the trail head. Maybe saw three people total at Observation Pt. Great weather and amazing views as always.

Hiked it yesterday 12/13. Absolutely awesome hike. Took my Dad and he enjoyed it as well. We started around 8am and were on the top by 9:30 or so. We enjoyed 45mins all to ourselves up there before we saw anyone. Perfect weather as well. Stoked to finally knock this one out since it was closed when I was here in September.

Begin by crossing the Virgin River using the foot bridge on the other side of the road from the Zion Lodge. The trail will be lined with cactus and cottonwoods as you parallel the river for most of the hike... al under the stunning red pock walls of the canyon.

A series of switchbacks will guide you up to stunning panoramic views of the area! Expect to see many mule deer too.

Great hike and nice view. Generally a constant incline but changing trail scenery/conditions. Lots of places to sunbathe, picnic, etc at the point. Didn’t get on the trail until 1245 because of car problems but actually made it up and back in under 4 hours because I didn’t take a break until the top bc of 530 sunset and allegedly 6 hrs round trip. Glad I didn’t push it to the next day and let vehicle issues waste my whole day.

3 bc this is just for the river walk, but 5 for the narrows. Bottom-Up isn’t an option to review on this app. A previous trip I did the river walk bc my friend wasn’t a big hiker plus the conditions borderline that time of year. The paved HC accessible route just not for me and wasn’t at all a good impression of what Zion has to offer. The longer harder hikes are a game changer for those capable and willing to work a little. Anyways this was one of 7 back to backI hikes I did in a 6 day period between Bryce and Zion. I rented gear and at this time of year there’s not a crowd in the river (and Subway permit odds extremely high if you do a two day gear rental). A few times you have no option but to be waist deep so the full drysuit was reassuring even though many times I was too warm. Walking stick very helpful to test depth and determine direction of walking or at times when the extra sturdiness helpful bc of the current.

Fun playful trail and scenic destination. If I wasn’t hiking solo I would have tried going a little further into the slots once it became shoulder depth pools. Most of the river was at most knee depth but most of the time not actually walking in it but switching from one side thru to the other. Being the second week of December only 4-5 permits were requested which made you feel like the trail was all yours. Rented neoprene socks and dry suit for 2 days since I did Narrows the next day and rental is 50% second day. Didn’t need the top til the Narrows so I just tied the sleeves around my waist so I wouldn’t have to bother exchanging pants for suit for day 2

app said it was 4.4 miles, when we hiked it and recorded it. it was 5.2 miles.

Paved path with lots of areas to walk down to the river. We went Dec 12th and it wasn't too crowded. Great way to see the beginning of the narrows and looking up all you see is canyon walls. There was also dirt paths by the river you could walk but you do have to come up to the paved path at some points. We also saw the dipper bird! Very beautiful and peaceful hike, easy and wheelchair assable.

We went Dec 12th, there wasn't a lot of people but middle and upper pool is closed. We saw two waterfalls and it was very muddy/slippery at the pools. We also saw deer and turkeys while on our way in! Definitely a great hike.

This area has smaller parking than other trail heads. Short and steep but overall it took us around 30min in and out. We went Dec 13th and the trail was wet, not many people.

Not an experienced hiker and this trail was a perfect challenge. Took us around an hour and 50mins to complete. We went Dec 12th and there was a little mud in higher elevation, a little slippery. Loop is shorter than we thought, you can skip this and still see watchman point overlook.

One of the hardest but great scenery on the top of mountain.

Absolutely breath taking!

Great hike. Strenuous, but worth the effort. Did it in early December and temps were perfect. A little muddy/snowy at the top, but nothing a good pair of hiking boots can’t handle. Went through about 1.5L of water, completed in about 4hr 20min (stopped at the top for 20-30 min).

Great easy hike. We ended up making it in 1 hour and 40 Mins out and back. Definitely recommend for a quick beautiful walk by the river

My favorite hike in Zion. Not a lot of trail markers and in the last half mile or so along the rim the trail isn't very defined. Download the map and be sure to take a backup paper map.

This hike is out of the main canyon and has excellent views. Combined with Deertrap it makes for an incredible day of hiking.

There aren't many trail markers in Zion wilderness so be sure to download and have a paper map for backup and make note that stave spring is off east rim trail but sometimes it isn't flowing. Check at the park ranger station beforehand!

This trail is a moderate to gradual climb up many levels of large outcropping rocks . After a rainy day the water is beautiful but it will be a bit muddy...

Perfect hike for after you've done Angel's Landing in the morning. Easy out and back trail with beautiful up canyon views. Do yourself a favor and take the dry creek bed "shortcut" on your way back to the Visitor's Center.

This hike was everything everybody said it would be, and more. Perfect weather and trail conditions.

Extraordinary hike combining clean hikes, to more strenuous adventurers. Rock climbing, stair masters and high elevations — nice stop points to have lunch and take-in the spectacular views. One of my favorite ad it combines a little bit of everything into one full day hike. Wouldn’t suggest this hike as family friendly.

Makes a nice day for an easy hike, incorporating scrambling and some adventure if combine weeping rock.

Fun and easy hike while connecting into hidden canyon. Made a nice day combining scrambling, hiking, scenic views and some off-trail adventures if combine these two hikes.

Great views! Unfortunatly for us, we have to avoid last sector by icy.
For me one of the best perspectives.

This place is beautiful!! A must see.

Most exhilarating hike ever!
