This was the most beautiful and unique hike of my life. Most of the hiking is ankle or shin deep in water. If it’s early in the morning, definitely pack a long sleeved shirt because it is cool in the shaded parts. This is such a beautiful hike. Every turn is just as beautiful as the last.

Great trail - really wanted to do the chained portion but it was still closed off. All the more reason to go again! Definitely shouldn’t be considered a hard hike if you’re an active, frequent hiker. One might venture to even say easy.

For a couple from Texas, this trail was just the right amount of challenge. The switchbacks aren’t too steep, and once you’re past them, the hardest part is over. There was a narrow section just past the switchbacks that had a stream or runoff, which caused mud. It didn’t make it difficult, but you might get your shoes wet and need to watch your step. My husband and I started and finished just past 2 hours, including stops for photos.

Amazing!! Start early and you won’t see anyone! Layer! Water is cold!!!

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.

A good trail with a gorgeous view! Some steep points with loose gravel type rocks, but nothing too difficult to descend. Just be warned if you’re a hiker who likes to hike in chacos, going down those declines can be a little bit sketchy. I sprained my ankle about 3 miles in but it was still doable to go in and out. One of the best views at Zion in my opinion.

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

Great trail! Bring extra water!

The actual elevation gain is about 250 feet.

Started at 7 am and was in the shade the entire hike. Finished at 8:30 just in time to see the sun come over the mountains, definitely recommend a morning hike! Not too many people going up, a little more crowded as I was going back down. I loved the way the trail starts by the water and it meets back up with you near the top. Trailhead is right by the visitors center so you don't need a shuttle ticket.

Started the hike around 9 am, crowded for a while and then it thins out. We ended up hiking along for 6 hours. You can go as little or as far as you want. The time passes quickly as you are constantly climbing/slipping on rocks - whether in the river or on land. Trekking poles definitely saved us from going down in a heap multiple times. Hiking back was extremely crowded, having to dodge families who didn’t have any sort of walking stick or poles. Overall some great views and unique hiking experience, but the last mile or so we were definitely ready to be done with the rocks and crowds.

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!

This hike feels like a spa day— Absolutely magical experience! We went late in the afternoon and missed most of the crowds. Make sure you have a walking stick/hiking pole.

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.

Overall a great hike! The chain area is still closed and we passed a ranger who said if you go up anyways, they’ve set up cameras to take your picture and will call the local authorities and meet you at the bottom depending on how busy they are. We decided not to risk it and hiked on for a good bit on the West Rim Trail, which was just past Angel’s Landing. It had some great views within just 30 minutes of hiking. We ended up going about 2.5 miles further and the trail was pretty steep. Most of the views were within that first 30 minute stretch.

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

Very pretty. Very crowded.

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!).

Make sure you start this one early and have plenty of water, otherwise you might get stuck on the last climb on some heavy heat. Also consider taking a side trip to Echo Canyon. When the trail diverges on the way back, follow the sign to Weeping Rock for about a mile and the trail will lead right through the canyon

Total worth the breathtaking view from the top. Chains area was closed but Scout’s Lookout was great. Started the hike at 6:30am and the trail was not busy.

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.
