Hiked this 5/25/20. Almost the entire hike is as steep as stairs or worse. A little stretch at the top is more mild. It took me 35 minutes for the ascent, same for descent. My legs were definitely feeling some burn on the way up AND down. Great view from the top as others have noted. If you’re hiking for the view an evening trip would show off Zion’s colors better. Start at the gate! Going around the fence means having to climb with your hands in snake country. Lots of steep, slippery spots. Lots of shortcuts that make the best, easiest route hard to see at times whether climbing or descending. NOT for small children. If I lived close to this I would hike it often for the intensity and distance. A great workout.

Did this late afternoon/evening on 5/23. Was looking for something short and steep and this didn't disappoint. The first two thirds of the way up are killer but then you get a flat stretch and the end isn't that bad. The descent is tough in parts, I only slipped and fell once haha. Great views at the top. When a hike is super steep, I prefer slickrock or rocks to climb on, as loose dirt and pebbles make the steepness tough sometimes

Trail is steep, so wear hiking shoes and bring poles. The views are well worth the hike.

If your looking to hike straight up for 1000 ft then this trail is for you. It is slow going back down because of all the loose dirt and rocks. The rating as “hard” is accurate. After all that being said, I would do this hike again sometime. The view at the top is pretty cool. And it’s a good one to get your heart pumping.

Great Hike! I was doing this to warm up to do Angels Landing and turns out it felt harder than Angels Landing! Steep and you’ll definitely feel it in your lungs and calves! Great view at the end! Would recommend!

Wow an amazing hike with an amazing view of hurricane, Washington and Zion. A challenging hike, short and steep. The hike wasn’t the only thing that was hard on this trail....

Nice panoramic views. Trail is steep with loose rock. Sturdy shoes and poles for the way down would be handy. There’s a canyon not far from the trailhead I had fun exploring as well.

Awesome hike! Beautiful views at the top. There was alot of mud on the trail up before the summit, but just used the rocks to the side to get past. perfect weather. Best place to watch the sunrise

A great, challenging hike. The wind was up today, but we enjoyed the hike. Only took a couple hours. Beautiful views odd Zion's West Rim, the Pine Mountain Ridge, Sand Hollow Reservoir, Quail Lake, and Hurricane Utah.

Great trail, steep, with loose rocks/gravel throughout. Take plenty of water, as there is not much shade. Bring a friend, anr wear decent hiking shoes. Overall, good trail, even better name.

The first half of this trail had plenty of technical terrain, anyone noting this trail as “moderate” must be into rock rock climbing, because that’s what comes next after this trail. Found I was going back down slower than I was going up. Would be well served to bring poles. Fun trail! Went middle of day in July, wind helps reduce heat, bring a water bottle.

Wonderful little hike. Good trail. There are several that weave in and out, some more aggressive (steep), but they all are close together and head to the top. Great views

This was on the difficult end of moderate. Great views though. It was a bit tricky to find the start of the trail.

This is not an easy hike. It is very steep. Coming down is slippery. But if you are aware of that then it is WELL WORTH IT! The views are amazing! Just wear good shoes, a buddy, and water.

although rated moderate there are parts of the trail that are hard and coming down is a slippery slope of loose rock and dirt. Okay hike but not one that I will rush to do again

Difficult. Very steep with loose gravel. Up and back only. Not a safe trail to hike with kids or alone. The other trail .5 to the south that looks like it goes to the right and makes a loop back down to the road is nonexistent. Beware if muddy. I do not recommend this trail.
