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.

Perfect morning hike. Started around 7:30 am. Clear trails. High traffic.

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.

Paved trail with river access and amazing views of Zion. Dog friendly. Bring sunscreen and bug spray, also a camera! Follow me on Instagram @nathan_vanengen for photos and fun unknown adventures.

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.

Challenging trail because I’m afraid of heights but it’s beautiful

Took the West Rim to Angels Landing which. The view from the top is incredible. Angels Landing is still closed but don’t let that discourage you from making the trek up.

Hey there runners, if you start from the South Campgrounds and turn around at the Canyon Junction underpass, it's exactly a 5k!

The first/last mile is decent. But the view on the loop is well worth it. Come early to avoid the crowd. (They generally start around 8am)

By far our favorite thing at the Zion! I went Thursday morning at 5:30 a.m. by myself and lined up to get in. It was pitch black but I found other cars parked ahead of me waiting as well. Parking lot at the trailhead might hold about 30 cars, I'm not quite sure. Walked the trail at sunrise and it's absolutely gorgeous. Later that day, around 5:30 p.m. they began letting cars go up again as it was completely full about 30 minutes after I arrived earlier that morning. My teen boys absolutely loved getting in the water and walking a ways through the river. It is truly that awesome! Water is very cold and the current was fast in several spots. We had flimsy water shoes knowing we weren't going to do a whole lot of walking through the Narrows. We were fine for about an hour, then pretty chilled. Would recommend for older children, not young kids due to the fast current. At times the water is waist deep on a 6 foot adult. If you're debating on whether to do it my answer is YES! It was an amazing experience!

Wonderful views of the canyon below. Not a tough trail at all and well maintained. One note- we did this today and enjoyed the hike but the pools are tiny, green and nearly non-existent this time of year. Heard others say they were pretty disappointed. Maybe the pools are better in the spring? As long as you're doing this just for the lovely views you'll enjoy it.

Nice views, easy climb :)

Great easy trail! We went to the river access and our doggie took a swim! Recommend for the entire family!

Worth it. For sure.

Beautiful hike, wonderful views at the top. My friend and I only made it to Hepworth due to time restrictions. Outside of the dried river path in the canyon, there is no clear path so downloading a map is a must. The tips shown on the map were super helpful with some spots where we weren’t sure how to traverse. No climbing gear needed, but hiking shoes with a good grip for all the slick rock is definitely necessary. Also, apparently this hike is actually closed currently for COVID-19 reasons, and we were yelled at by a park ranger at the East tunnel gate when we got out. The guys at the info center in Zion said otherwise but oh well. Hope people can get back to this trail soon.

It’s hard for me to trash a trail. I gave it a 4...but this could’ve easily been a 3. First issue: Distance is inaccurate. Clocked 17.5 and I did the entire loop. Second: Following the West rim leads to some badass views! You’re exposed to the sun the entire time though! Be prepared Third: I wouldn’t recommend continuing too far into the west rim trail after you reach the top of the Mesa. Telephone Canyon is simply NOT worth the effort. And apparently most people know this..,the trail is really overgrown in many many spots.

I can’t begin to say how disappointed I am at this “dog-friendly trail”. The ONLY dog-friendly trail in this whole park and it’s black asphalt lava lane. It does have a River your dog can go in which is also loaded with children and adults but no paths to walk beside it. So you are stuck to a trail that your dog can’t walk on between the lava, sand spurs getting caught in their paws and what I can mean wheat which are like little daggers to skin. I was very much looking forward to this trail but found it unbearable for my dog 10 minutes in. And bc Zion doesn’t allow u to bring ur dog anywhere else (even on lead) we drove for 2 days and can’t experience this beautiful place.

Tried to find hobbit hole. Ended up in crags and finding some neat nooks. Very rocky terrain as well as parts with sand. Challenging hike but so much fun. Take ur time and explore. We came upon an area in the crags with stagnant water. Extremely cold but fun to explore through if not too deep. At the end of our day we drove out to Grafton ghost town. Would be incredibly boring hike. Just gravel road, flat, no real hike involved. Pretty scenery on the way but nothing I’d really go out of the way for hiking it. But drive to Grafton, go in the houses, explore a bit. It’s neat and great history. Watch out for large fire ants. My dog got bit and now she won’t walk on that foot. Very sad.
