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.

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.

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. 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!

This was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! It was intense and beautiful and kind of scary at some points. My biggest advice is to WEAR GOOD HIKING SHOES. Also, do not be focused on anything but the climb.

This is a fantastic trail if you’re looking for a hike with less crowds in Kolob Canyon and the general Zion National Park. The colors of the canyon are absolutely stunning. My favorite part was the soft and pink sand you’ll find along the trail. The “peak” is up to you to decide, with varying degrees of scrambling at the end. Highly recommend.

One of the best hikes I've done! Beautiful nature all the way. We, a group of two, started the hike at 0800 (October 13th) and finished at 16:15, so 8h15mins with stops, photos etc (above average physical condition). Water temp: 34 degrees, air temp: 30 in the beginning, 69 at the end. They said the average time to complete this is 12h20min, but then you have to walk really slow. It was freezing at first, so I really recommend neoprene socks, a good pair of boots, dry suit/ dry pants of some sort. You can rent this for around 50 dollars for the day hike. Using two poles will also help with the balance when crossing slippery rocks. Also, bring a beanie and some warm gloves. I used a thin layer of wool which was very nice. This trip is long and straneous, but nothing cosmic about it as long as the weather is good (no risk og flash floods and heavy rain), the flow rate is on the lower side and you bring food with a lot of calories (pro tip: Cliff bars with a LOT of peanut butter; bring a jar). Everything about this hike is beautiful, you basically have a whole canyon to yourself for miles and miles. I loved that we did this in October, with fewer people and beautiful colors everywhere. The only downside was all the people at the last couple of miles.

Heavy traffic! But great way to take some pictures!

Crowd trailed; kid friendly; washed out

Short trail with an amazing view of Zion!

Beautiful views but very crowded! Rocky- wear water boots!

Hiked up to Angel's Landing last morning (10/12/19). Heeding the advice of other AllTrails users we took an early (07:30) park shuttle. The initial part of the trail (to Scout Lookout) is a moderate hike on a paved trail. After a gradual ascent you encounter the first series of switchbacks. This is followed by a fairly level trek through the shaded "Refrigerator Canyon" before you get to "Walter's Wiggles" a series of 21 short switchbacks leading to Scout Lookout. All that remains is a chain-assisted approximately 500-foot scramble to the top. Carved footholds & strategically located chains greatly facilitate this ascent (recommend that you carry a pair of inexpensive work gloves). Before you reach the top you have to walk on a "saddle" which is not as narrow as people describe it. The view from the top is one to die for! The only problem, you will have to deal with people who are unaware of trail etiquette when it comes to giving way in crowded sections.

This trail was very difficult and requires stamina. DO NOT GO if you are afraid of heights or have knee problems. The way down is straining on the knees. That being said, if you are able and comfortable going, the view and feeling of achievement are well worth it!!! We rented ebikes to beat the crowds and get an early start. We started the hike in the dark and started the last 1/2 mile just as it started to get light. This worked great since there were only a couple people up top when we got there. It also helped us get out early enough to avoid bottle necking problems on the way down.

Beat the crowd , took 7 am shuttle . I was up at the peak within one hour from the Gratto stop . On my way back , met by increasing crowd. Awesome views from the top at sunrise .

Good hike! Good way to avoid the crowd. We started at 8am, we were first at location! Hike is shady, it's 6 miles, and not 5 as indicated. On our way back car park was almost full.

I hiked this trail on October 11, 2019 and had a seizure in response to heat stroke on the way down. A really kind doctor, who happened to be nearby, stopped to help me and wound up staying with me until I was stable. However. I never got a chance to thank him (or ask him his name..). So, if you (the doctor) somehow stumble upon this message... please know how much I appreciate you! I am humbled by your care and filled to the brim with gratitude. Thank you, stranger.
