A beautiful, relatively secluded hike up a stream past a couple cabins up to a huge concave "weeping rock".

Hiked this trail in mid June 2017. Weather was perfect around mid 70's. Very easy hike with great views and hardly any traffic on the trail. I would recommend this as an excellent alternative to the larger National Parks.

Nice wilderness hike, would've given a 5 if there weren't 20 creek crossings! Yikes. Double arch at end was neat. Best part is it isn't not touristy, a real nature hike.

Beautiful hike of varying views. Love the double arch alcove at the end! Tons of water crossings make it fun!

This is an easy-moderate, beautiful trail that is kind of Zion-in-miniature. You get high peaks, a deep canyon chiseled by water, an upstream hike to majestic red arches, and, beyond the arches, a narrow but very pretty waterfall. Like most trails in the Zion Wilderness, traffic on the trail isn't particularly heavy. Recommended.

This was a great hike! Lots of short ups and downs to keep you on your toes, and many creek crossings with rock balancing/hopping. The end is worth it and the walk was beautiful.
