Zion National Park in Utah is a popular destination in the Southwestern United states with beautiful views. It was the first national park in Utah and the best way to experience it is hiking among the high cliffs and through the narrow canyons. It is home to some very unique hikes, such as the Narrows where you walk for miles up a river with sheer canyon walls on either side of you, or hike the Angels Landing Trail with 21 switchbacks to the top for a great lookout. This geologically unique area has colorful sandstone canyons, high plateaus, and rock towers. Natural arches and exposed formations of the Colorado Plateau make up a large wilderness of diverse ecosystems. Route 9, which traverses the park from east to west, is open year-round to private vehicles. Be prepared for hazardous driving conditions during and immediately following storms. Icy spots remain through the winter.

Love it, came down when it was dark, so I suggest you do it when there is still sun.

Peur du vide non , mais peur de la foule oui....
La vue au sommet n’est pas à couper le souffle non plus.

The riverside walk is an easy hike up to the Narrows- you can actually go off the paved area and hike the dirt path next to the river

This was a great hike - I loved every part of it - However, if you have any fear of heights then this trail is not for you

Hiked Angel's landing starting @ the grotto this past March. Absolutely challenging but every step was worth it! One you reach Scout's landing prepare for more of a mental climb. Patience is key! Please don't wear flip flops like some of the others

Love it! Second time up and brought our 6 month old son to the top. The views on the way up and echo canyon in the middle really make it a great hike. Good shade for the first half of the trail if hiking earlier in the day

I actually completed the hike starting at Weeping Rock, which brings the total mileage of the hike to 8 miles, out and back. The elevation climb is intense, but the trail quickly becomes unmissable as you finish the first set of switchbacks and enter a gorgeous canyon up which you get a glimpse of the technical slot, Echo Canyon. The extra mileage and elevation is totally worth the exertion and would recommend highly. On the way back completed Hidden Canyon, which is accessed by a trail that connects off of the first set of switchbacks, and is a lovely detour that utilizes some chains along the canyon walls.

Beautiful hike. A bit longer and higher than Angel's Landing but less daunting. Only one stretch near the top that raised my blood pressure, so I just hugged the wall and kept my eyes focused on the trail. Incredible view at the top!

Short in distance but difficult for one who has a fear of heights. Keep your head down and keep going up.

My favorite. The walk/hike is fun. Makes you concentrate. And you meet nice people along the way. Bring a walking stick or rent one. I recommend renting the waterproof socks from Zion Outfitters and shoes. You’ll drop 25$. But it’s worth it. Water is NOT that cold. If you do Zion and don’t do The Narrows you will be sorry.

I liked it except for the heights. Great workout. Bring extra shirt so you can change at the top. I don’t understand how people can run down path. One wrong trip on the path and you’re Bon Voyage.

Second time up. Some say it’s more strenuous than Angles Landing

Easy peasey. A lot of tourists. Oh wait I’m a tourist. A lot of families. Nice add on hike after Hidden Canyon or Observation Point. It’s pretty neat especially if you have kids.

Nice climb. Holding onto chains I believe can give you sense of Angels Landing. The end was a bit of a disappointment. Oh, this is it?
