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.

Amazing hike! So much greenery in this section of the park. Lots of different vegetation and wildlife to see along the way as well as many fun stream crossings (all shallow, no wet feet!). It gets better and better the further you go as the canyon begins to narrow bringing the beautiful rock formations closer to you on both sides. Ends with large, natural amphitheater and an arch! One of the bet hikes I did in Zion!!!
