Zion National Park, located in Southern Utah, is a popular destination in the Southwestern United states with beautiful views and a unique landscape. It was the first national park in Utah and and is best experienced hiking among the high cliffs and through the narrow canyons. The park is home to some very popular hikes and sights - it is truly a hiker's park. On the Narrows you walk for miles up a river with sheer canyon walls on either side of you. The Angels Landing Trail has 21 switchbacks to the top of Angels Landing which boasts a spectacular canyon overlook. The East Rim Trail takes you to Observation Point, the highest point in the park. The Subway Trail is a unique slot canyon trail that traverses through the left fork of North Creek. The Kayenta Trail is a great option for families with canyon views and provides access to other trails in park. The Emerald Pools trail is a paved trail that starts from the Zion Lodge and takes you to Lower Emerald Pool and from there a sandy and rocky trail to the Upper Emerald Pool at the base of a cliff. West Rim Trail is a two night backpacking trail takes you to from the Grotto trailhead to Lava Point and offers spectacular views of the park. You can also rent bikes and ride the Pa’rus trail within the park to observe the main canyon of the park in a short amount of time. The lesser known area of Kolob Canyon, located on Kolob Terrace Road, contains trails such as the Middle Fork of Taylor Creek Trail and the Kolob Arch Trail. Many people access the Kolob Canyon area from the scenic drive located off I-15 exit #40. Many of the zion hikes require permits, which you can pick up from the visitor center prior to heading out on your hike. Aside in addition to the excellent hiking trails, 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. This area is prone to flash floods so be prepared for hazardous driving conditions during and immediately following storms. Icy spots remain through the winter.

Did this yesterday. Drive there is impressive with multiple switchbacks Hike is not difficult but some steep areas with drop offs other areas have fencing and railings Not for those bothered by heights but rewarding views. Did this in the late afternoon so the light and shadows were stunning

Unique and beautiful. Left early to park at visitors center by 7:30. 40 min shuttle ride to trail head. Light was beautiful so bus ride was enjoyable. Rented gear including dry pants and boots which kept us all comfortable. Water is swift and footing can be challenging in spots but just took our time. Water was mid thigh at highest (5’6”). Turned around just past the split. Amazing scenery

Amazing trail. Completed in about 2 hours and 15 minutes, but we were on a time crunch. Loved the increased adrenaline and awareness on that last half mile. I can’t wait to come back and do it again!

Great short scramble. Nice waterfall.

This is my third trip in the Narrows. I’ve been early June, mid-August, and now mid-October. This time I rented dry pants from Zion Guru and I have my own neoprene socks, boots, trek pole (rubber tips must have). Water is very cold but pants were perfect. It’s a mostly shaded river walk which most people don’t realize. Don’t forget to look up and behind you to see the amazing rock wall. Water got up to my waist a couple of areas (I’m a short 5’2”). Always worth it! TIP: afterward change into dry shoes/flip flops before taking shuttle back down.

If your able to do either this route or from weeping rock (whether that’s being physically fit, logistics, or just both routes open) I would choose the later. It’s a better challenge, great views all the way, and it doesn’t have the long back road route. This is a pretty boring route until about the very end. The end is a great picture. But the route relative to many Zions hike is quite plain. Wish we would’ve hiked early or late to get better pics.

No one was on the Sand Bench Trail from Zion Lodge to the Court of the Patriarchs. Great quiet trail with great views!

Okay trail to an okay overlook.

Hiked Zion Narrows for my birthday September 24th. Amazing! Slick rocks. Bring hiking poles. Go as early as possible. It gets crowded as the day goes on.

Short trail with a nice view at the top. Just ended to fast. Only one on the trail. Love Zion

Upper pool closed. Beautiful on way to lower though!

That was a lot of scrambling! Maybe the prettiest hike I have done in Utah. That says a lot. Nothing on the hike is too difficult. Very slow going in places. Leave yourself plenty of time. The Alltrails app was great. Just fallow it judiciously. The rappels are easy. The swim throughs are freezing until you get to moving water.

Unbelievable. Do it, all the way to the top.

Long but easy walk with a gorgeous view at the end! Some nice overlooks off the trail on herd paths too. You can see Angel’s Landing and the entire valley below. Careful on the dirt road in—if it’s wet, do not try it.

Personally, I found the West Rim (the trail that leads to Angels Landing) to be harder than Angles Landing. Overall, it was a must do! It can get crowded at times so go as early as you can and you will rewarded with amazing views!

If you want spectacular views, this trail is not for you. If you like hiking in trees and through some grasslands, then you will probably like this hike. No view at trail end, but there is an old piece of farm equipment (possibly a drill for planting seeds) on the left just before the sign post.

Nice little trail in the Kolob area of Zion. Pretty short, not too strenuous.

This was a great adventure! We did it with a group of 6 women (ages 32-60) and we completed it in 10 hrs. We got a private shuttle and started at 7am. We rented dry suits, neoprene socks, boots and poles and we brought dry bags. I would 100% recommend getting all the gear! It makes a huge difference!! We wore lots of layers, had gloves, hats and headbands to keep warm in the morning. We brought and consumed lots of water and lots of food! Bring lots and be prepared! It was a long hike on uneven terrain in amazing canyons. It was definitely hard and tiring but a great adventure.

One of my favorite hikes! Adrenaline-pumping and beautiful views

We hiked along The Narrows last Sunday (10/13/19). The river bed (rocky) was slick in places, the water was cold & the current sometimes strong enough to push one off balance. We had picked up a Dry Pants package from Zion Outfitters the previous evening to allow for an early start. The neoprene socks kept our feet dry, the canyoneering boots had grippy soles and the dry pant was insulating in addition to being waterproof. The provided wooden walking stick is an essential. We hiked to about the middle of Wall Street. The deepest water we encountered was to the mid-thigh (I am 5' 7") but watch out for some deeper pockets! The views were phenomenal. Truly, an experience not to be missed.

First trail of the morning. Nice trail beside the river. Great for families. Trail ends and the Narrows begin for the more adventurous. Beautiful day in Zion.

Very nice hike, we did it in one day. Starting at 7.00 am. Finished in 8,5 hours. Had one long lunchbreak and two shorter breaks. Thought the part from Angels Landing on down was hard, being tired, full sun and lots of people. Doing it in two days would be great. Campsite 3 looked very pretty, would be a good place to camp. We had lunch there. Als, we had 4 L water per person, which was just enough, but bring more when hiking in summer.

awesome hike. check weather well before as you will not get out alive if rains come

Go early, the view is beautiful! Please allow people to get down. If your going up there late you need to allow people off of the top to make room for those trying to make it to the top. Especially when there's little to no room on some of the climbing sections, it's about safety and patience.

Go early and be prepared that it's chilly and the sun doesn't really come through. Loved jumping off the rock into the deep hole! Could've just swam across to continue but decided to have that be our turn around point and to head down the right side.

Amazing! Must do hike. Start early and avoid the lines and the sun beating down on you while you are hiking up the switchbacks. Gloves were helpful too!
