Amazing hiking trail, awesome views from the top of the trail. I finished the entire hike in about 4 hours. Either start hiking on this trail early in the morning or later in the afternoon to avoid the crowd.

Great view. Long drop offs, not for anyone fearful of heights.

Great hike with amazing views. We started just before 9am and about half of the switchbacks were in the shade. There were maybe 20-30 people at the summit, but it's a large area with lots of space to have a snack in front of a gorgeous view.

beautiful walk

We loved our hike on The Narrows. I was a little nervous about it but we picked the best clear blue sky day we could and went for it on the first shuttle of the day. I can't emphasize how important that is insofar as crowds go. Rented boots and poles, wore shorts and a couple of layers on top. Placed phones and snacks in waterproof bags and wore a day pack. We crisscrossed the river and learned very quickly how to navigate the current & river rocks. Our deepest part of the water was maybe hip high. It got more beautiful the deeper in we hiked. We went as far as Wall Street and then turned. Beautiful both directions. Lots of people were headed in as we were finishing. So glad we got out early. Do overs: I'd stick a pair of Keens or Tevas in my pack to make the walk back on the sidewalk so not to have to walk in the river boots. All I can say is it's a beautiful thing. So glad we did it!

There isn't a bad trail in Zion. This one was an easy hike. We hiked both the upper and lower emerald pools. As with all of the hikes we did in Zion, we got out on the first shuttle and it made a huge difference in crowds and temperature. Beautiful!

Absolutely unreal.

awesome, just a bit crowded.

I was proposed to at the observation point. such an amazing view!

Loved it!! Get there early!!!

Best hike that I've ever done. Definitely difficult at times, but it is 100% worth it.

Amazing views. Steep grade, but well worth the effort.

We were here in the off season and it snowed. The hike was very pretty and offered some good views, but the pools were rather anticlimactic. I think the trail would be better enjoyed in the spring when everything is in bloom or in the fall (just not winter). I would also recommend going after a good rain - the water running off all the falls would be an amazing sight I'm sure and that would make this hike much better.

Really fun and relaxing hike, compared to the heat of previous hikes in this park. Recommend renting the boots/socks/stick to stabilize and keep balance as well as insulate.

Please, don’t feed the rock squirrels - it makes them fat and gives them a strange flavor.

wooooooohoooooo! don't be scared! go all the way up! your chances of falling off the cliff

If you’re a beginner hiker than it’s a decent trail. Definitely a tourist trap, lots of people! The high foot traffic takes away from any of the fun. The pools are more like puddles which is a little disappointing. If you want to do something easy and to go for a nice walk than it’s fine. If you’re looking for something more challenging I would choose a different trail.

The trail is a gradual up-climb for the majority of the hike so be prepared. It gets flat for the last half mile or so which is a nice breather. All in all it’s a challenging hike but very doable and the view is worth it. Incredible!

Great trail! Beautiful vistas. I didn't do the final chain section - wet, sandy rocks and a phobia of heights.

Amazing experience!

Beautiful hike - we were mostly alone for the first half (before big springs). Camping overnight in the canyon was amazing!

This trail is easy to navigate and elevation changes are minimal. At this point we had 65 miles of hiking so we were ready to finish! Meandering path and wide trail. Zero water sources.

Superb views along the way. Challenging elevation changes with heavy pack but so worth the hike since the views are spectacular along the way. Map distances are inaccurate when using GPS. Bring water!

Great vistas throughout the hike. Be prepared for multiple river crossings and ready to hike in miles of sand! Elevation changes vary and super fun and challenging when packing all of your gear. Bring bug repellent! No water sources until Beauty springs.

We did this trail last week. The trail is very sandy so expect to get a good workout. It is relatively flat until you reach the descent into the valley to the campsite. The valley itself has stunning views especially during sunrise. Expect to get your feet wet in the valley as you are going to cross the creek about a dozen times until you reach the hop valley campsite. The portion of the trail from the campsite to the Kolob arch does contain some steep hills but the view of the arch itself is worth it once you arrive. The arch is off in the distance and is easy to miss if you aren’t paying attention to the signs. Relatively few people were walking this trail so it was a great way to get great scenery in without the crowds.

Great starter hike for Zion National Park.

GO AS EARLY AS YOU CAN STAND! Views from angels landing can’t be beat, and the half mile trail at the end is scary but fun. However, after 9 am it’s going to be crowded on 1 way climbing sections to the point it can be dangerous.

One of the most amazing hikes/adventures I’ve done. The top down is the way to go! We YouTubed how to rappel (had done it in the past but it had been a while) and it went totally fine/was such a blast! (Don’t recommend to others but we did it with no problems!) We rented wetsuits which were maybe not necessary (especially having to carry them out completely wet) but there were definitely a lot of areas where we were completely submerged in water. There are small cairns at the top on the slick rock so just follow those and you should be fine/not get lost! The subway is cool, but honestly the whole hike is beautiful and such an experience that the subway was a little underwhelming. Also the hike out at the end is NO JOKE. Everyone says it and it’s true! Some say it’s not marked but it is very clearly marked. Definitely the most strenuous part of the hike, especially after a long day.

This is one of the coolest Exide ever been on. Going your June and taking a tube makes it even more fun. I love to lay on my stomach and flow through the corners through the D parts. I took my 12 and 15-year-old daughter and son and they loved it.

One of the best hikes! Tons of beautiful scenery with lots of variety!!! The climb is more gradual than expected with lots of switchback in the beginning. The trail is paved most of the way too. There are lots of steep, cliff drop offs but the trail is wide enough so it’s not scary unless you are really afraid of heights. Definitely a must do hike!!!
