Great hike with the kids... Water had washed through the narrow canyon sometime within 24 hours of our arrival. There was still a lot of water and tons of quicksand. Kids loved it. Ran into a heard of horned sheep. Really fun hike.
Hidden jewel in Zion's. Great slot cannon among regular views.
Started this hike from the bottom of the canyon. Absolutely stunning. My favorite trail in my favorite park. You can make it as difficult or easy as you want. Definitely recommend for a stop.
Off the beaten path, Gifford Canyon offers a serene stroll through a diverse ecosystem of water, rock and hanging gardens. Gifford Canyon is also the access point for all of the mid and main canyon range peaks including Bridge Mountain.
Hiked it again last week and it is still beautiful in the Winter as it is in the Spring. I can't wait to go again and look forward to next fall to take that opportunity to see the brilliant colors. Wonderful place to take kids exploring.
