Description
Waypoints (0)

Zion National Park charges a fee to enter. Fees are $35 per vehicle or $30 per motorcycle. If you are entering on foot, horse, or bike the fee is $20 per person. You can also purchase a park specific annual pass for $70. This is a popular paved trail that leads up to Scout Lookout. Don't let the pavement fool you, this trail can be very steep and difficult in some sections. The trail is also quite exposed, so visiting in either the morning or late afternoon will buy you some shade. After crossing Virgin River on a bridge, the trail turns right, and goes along the river for a bit. You'll then start climbing on a paved trail. The views of the canyon start to become incredible. There are some great photo opportunities along the way. You'll then reach some very tight steep switchbacks. After the switchbacks you'll be at Scout Lookout. Many daring people go beyond Scout Lookout to nearby Angels Landing.

Lots of switchbacks, ‘Walters Wiggles” & sweeping views of Zion Canyon make this a must see. If you get this far you’d be crazy to stop here & not go all the way up to Angels Landing. Trail was crowded with people meeting on the last half mile ascent. Patience & ‘one step at a time’ is all that’s needed.

The trail itself was really fun and not too strenuous. The chain section was sketchy due to how many people kept stopping on the way up while you’re on the edge of a cliff. I took the shuttle at 7:30am and it was crowded so go earlier if you can. The hike is worth it even if you don’t make it all the way to Angel’s Landing.
