Great hike for families. We did this with young kids. Beautiful slot canyon right at the beginning. There was lots of snow on the ground. A lot of picking your path over small rocks. Very little traffic on the trail.

Nice hike to escape the Zion crowds and see a very nice slot canyon. We had the trail and canyon all to ourselves.

4 stars only because it’s right next to/below the road and i wish it ventured further into the wilderness. There are beautifullll views but really only one good section of a small slot canyon. Walking in a sandy creekbed the whole time. It was my first hike of the day on this side of Zion, otherwise I wouldnt have done it. It’s spectacular only if you havent done much exploring yet.

Great little hike, perfect for families. There is a slot canyon and lots of places you can explore and climb up the side of the canyon.

Very boring. About 200ft of slot in the middle of a mile of unremarkable dry wash. Many better options nearby. However directly under the parking area is an amazing drainage tunnel blasted out of solid rock.

A hidden gem in Zion. If all you want is the slot canyon, you can actually start at one of the 2 pullouts further east on Hwy 9. But the whole trail is gorgeous and worth the hike. We hit it when the fall colors where just starting. Highly recommend.

Started around 9:30 and didn't see any other hikers. This is a great trail to experience the beautiful colors and formations in a slot canyon. Great for anyone who can scramble over small- medium rocks in the creek bed. It's so cool to be able to climb around on the sandstone. We had a great time and took lots of photos!

This trail is a hidden gem. My recording recorded only one way. I ended up walking back on the road by climbing up a hill as I was running out of time. I loved the slot canyon and have heard there's a few more on this trail that can be turned into a loop trail. Maybe the other slots are technical... the one I saw was easy to enter, no bouldering or technical aspects. Simply amazing. Hope to go back and finish this trail.

My kids liked playing in the rocks. 11,9,7,4. To the left is a slot canyon. Definitely very rocky. To the right is a tunnel to another much more technical slot canyon. Water and drops. We turned around. The colors on the left hand d one were great. Apparently you can make it a loop if you have technical skills.

It was too close the road for my taste- perhaps better in cooler weather and when the park is quieter.

Nice trail to hike with the family. Kids aged 10-12 all did well. We were able to stop for shade under some trees. Lizards and birds were seen a lot. It is rocky, so we took our time with the kids, but overall a nice easy trail. There is a tunnel that leads under the road to the other side, but it does not go very far, still fun for the kids though.

It was ok, we saw lizards and tadpoles. Going through the narrows was the best part. But, since it’s a dried up river bed it is full of rocks. It was very difficult for my 4 year old to maneuver through the rocks so I carried her on my back most of the time. Don’t think I would consider it good for young kids.

Great hike! There are several side canyons to hike as well. We saw Petroglyphs and a lot of wildlife! Thunderstorms hit in the middle of our hike, flooded all the slot canyons that had been dry only an hour before. Absolutely beautiful!

A nice easy walk through the dry creek bed. One decent slot canyon and a second very short one. Good walk for families with children.

Wanted to end a day of hiking with an easy trail. Didn't see much wildlife in the late morning, early afternoon but the scenery was beautiful. The trail has firm footing through most with gravel, sand, and rock in various places. A worthwhile hike with children and a bonus of two slot canyons along the trail.

First to Review

We did this trail, which is actually a seasonal creak bed, on whim after being mesmerized by the sites in the area. We thought we should share it because it was a fun hike and couldn't believe the sites and the wildlife (All those big horns!)
