Hiking

Easy and pleasant hike, entirely in the wash with some boulders to climb but nothing difficult. Very quiet trail and nice scenery, but nothing breathtaking. Few annoying flies and gnats on the trail and at the end of it. Recommended to hike first in the morning in warm days (we started at 11AM and it was a bit hot) to enjoy the hike better.

Fun trail to do light trail running and play leap rock along the way. 90% dry, there was a few places that had shallow water with tadpoles which was fun to see. At the end there was water dripping off the cliffs, it was nice to stand under and get wet!

This trail begins past the metal double gate on the left at the new highway pull off. Walk the road past the power sub station and over the hill. To drop down into the wash take the easy path down to the left and you enter the wash. The trail has very little shade. Best hiked in late spring and throughout the fall. It was about 90 percent dry even though it rained just four days prior. Some muddy spots but no water to wade through. You can expect large boulders and rocks throughout the wash that challenges your ankle strength. But very maneuverable. Beautiful spring flowers blooming give way to the sharpening variances in rock faces that make photo ops frequent. The further you go the higher the walls become. Some great views of Mt Kinesava in the distance. The trail ends at a large rock ledge with tricking waterfalls. To hike through to the Chinle trail on the upper bench ...looks like you need scrambling skills to climb up the face and possibly ropes. Overall good hike quiet only passed one other hiker...few wildlife tracks

Gorgeous little hike outside of Zion and a great way to beat the crowds. don't expect dramatic cliffs in the same way, rather a more open, muddy landscape among small cliffs and boulders that have eroded mostly away compared to the iconic park. It's perfect for rockhounders as petrified wood is scattered throughout the canyon, especially on the slopes to the east. When we hiked it, a barbed wire fence blocked us from venturing into the canyon after only about a half to quarter mile. Climbing or ducking the fence seems fairly easy, if you're willing to get dirty.

a fence closes off the trail by the river.

A nice winter hike. Petrified wood embedded in the wash at the dry fall is pretty cool.

Nice hike up the wash. The first 2 miles is regular "sand in the wash" type of hiking, but the last 1/2 mile or so gets you thru some larger boulders and the turnaround at a large dry waterfall. Would have liked to have gotten a look at this from above, but didn't want to rock scramble to do it. We did locate several pieces of petrified wood in the walls. A nice hike. Saw no other hikers today.

A great sandy hike up a wash ending for some at a dry fall where an ancient petrified log jam awaits. If you wander up a little further with a scramble up the left of the wash from the dry fall you can meet up with Chinle trail and venture to Coal Pits Wash or go down Scoggins. On top is the petrified forest. When you do hike this make sure you look for all the petrified wood trapped in the walls of the wash and then some.

This is a nice winter hike that follow the bottom of Huber Wash which runs East of and more or less parallel to better known Coal Pits Wash. There is not much altitude gain but the trail is not as easy as some because the bottom of the wash offers uneven footing. It offers great views of Mount Kinesava. We did the hike in early February. There were a few places in the wash that were still muddy from a rain about 10 days earlier but mostly they could be avoided. The trail ends at a low dry waterfall and hanging garden that was mostly brown in February but which probably greens up later. West of the trail is a petrified forest mesa and quite a few chunks of petrified wood can be found along the trail particularly near the end. (It is illegal to remove them from the Park.) This hike sees very little traffic which is a big plus compared to many of the over-crowded trails in Zion NP. At the end of the trail, by backtracking about 100 feet and scrambling up a steep incline on the East Wall, you can supposedly connect to the Chinle Trail. I have not tried that route so don't guarantee it.
