The first mile or so is nice, though lacking the inspiration that will come later... If you like slot canyons, and WE certainly do, this hike is for you!

HikingGreat!

While it never gets very narrow, there are side canyons that can satisfy your scrambling desires. Various small caves are fun to send the kids in, and it does have some scenic gaps and rock formations. The spring creek itself disappears about 2/3 ways up the canyon. There is some evidence of flash floods, but there always seems to be an easy uphill connection available so little danger of actually being caught in a sticky situation. I would recommend exploring side canyons where possible to liven up the hike. Pretty fun overall, our kids enjoyed it.

Easy trail that leads literally no where, does connect to another system but the snow was quite deep towards the end. Not AWFUL but plus at least be rewarding at the end with a view or something.

HikingGreat!Snow

Amazing hike in the snow! I went just after a fresh half inch or so had fallen and it gave me some traction over the icy parts along the creek. Went about 3.5 miles in, taking a left at Sweetwater Gulch and going through the tall narrow slot canyon. Shortly after that it got too bushwacky and the snow was deeper so I turned around. Looking forward to coming back in the spring.

Stunning in the winter! Micro spikes are a must with snow. We went 3.4 in. About 6 frozen water falls, but covered with snow.

Beautiful, easy trail. Went about 3 miles in, but looks like we could’ve gone further. Not too crowded in the winter!

IcyMuddySnow

The hike is easy to the Cave. After that there is some boulder climbing and downed trees. There is water in the stream for part of the hike which is a couple of inches deep. Whenever there is a crossing there are always stepping stones to get across easily. There is a little mud near the stream and packed snow on the trail in the open area. Overall, the hike is interesting but not stellar It is definitely worth doing.

Muddy in spots — boots would have been better than approach shoes.

HikingGreat!Off trailRockyScramble

Hiked this Canyon a few days ago and loved it. It was a perfect choice on a windy day as it’s more protected from the wind. Very cool slot Canyon. Hopping over the creek, climbing up and over boulders, and over/under trees made it a fun adventure. I ventured quite a bit further than the mileage listed. Turned around at 4-1/2 miles by my gps watch. So close to Zion, but only saw a total of 9 other hikers the whole time and none of them had explored as far as I did. Highly recommend this hike!

HikingGreat!

Truly magical and beautiful trail! The combination of hiking by the stream and then into the slot canyons was great. Pretty easy all around. There’s some big rocks to climb over when you get into the slot canyon, but easy enough for hikers of all ages and skill levels to take on. The fall foliage made it even better. Agree with others that the temperature swings pretty wildly between when you’re in the sun and then in shadow in the canyon. Would suggest bringing layers and possibly even gloves depending on what time of day you go. Would be a great hike to do with kids. Definitely recommend!

Great rock formations and large temperature swings when you get up into the canyon. Easy enough trail for our 6mo old puppy.
