Great hike to several arches. Some, as has been mentioned, are viewable from the road and from Checkerboard Mesa viewpoint but others are not. If you haven't seen the ones not viewable from the viewpoint you haven't gone far enough. I would not have rated this medium difficulty. There were only a couple of small scrambles and those could have been walked around. Really enjoyable short hike!

Any hike in the outback of Zion off the beaten path is worth the walk. This hike was better than that.

This was a walk down a river wash to a moderately better view of hidden arch than you get from the pullout. Not a lot of bang for the buck.

You follow a wash most of the way. The left turn out of the wash is easy to spot. It is a giant v-shaped rock area with an iron stained water mark in the v. This info will save you having to have your phone out to know exactly when to go left. Hard to follow this route without the recordings. It's not really a trail.
