Extremely sandy. Make sure to go through the wheat field pasture after the first gate, going left will give you an extra 3-4 miles of sand dune hiking round trip to backtrack to the gate. The majesty of the La Verkin Creek is incredible and worth it!

Great hike that’s easy. Nice pay off with an amazing view over the canyon

This is part of the trail that branches off to go to Hidden Canyon and Observation Point. This is a good, very short trail that you can use as a warmup before you take on either HC or OP (or both). It's not worth taking the ride out purely for this trail, though.

it's great for the next level of riders. Easy to moderate however you have the choice to make it harder for sure!

Not a hard hike but definitely some sections with steep drop offs and narrow paths. Beautiful views at the end for such a short hike. A must-do while at Zion

For how many reviews of this trail I read that said it was a very easy little jaunt, I was not expecting the many narrow areas with drop offs. I have a moderate fear of heights that’s amplified when hiking with my kids (13 and 9). So while it’s definitely not a strenuous hike, it’s not the simplest paved pathway either, and it’s not for everyone. If you have a fear of heights, consider your limits. Keep a close eye and sometimes a hand on children.

Nice easy hike with a fantastic view!

It’s a pretty view and a very short hike. It was pretty crowded

Amazing history which was fun to share with my children. Amazing views and enjoyable hike!

Quick and easy walk out to a beautiful view of the valley. A solid filler if you’re looking to kill an hour.

Happened to be a spot in the parking lot to this hike as we were waiting to go through the tunnel. Hiked out and back with my husband, eight-year-old daughter, and three-year-old son. They both did great. My little guy was tuckered out on the way back, so we took turns giving him piggy back rides. Took us about two hours at a nice and slow pace set by my little boy. Great view at the end. Some shade.

Stayed overnight at campsite #11, highly recommend this site. Hike along Hop Valley is very sandy but the reward at La Verkin Creek and Kolob Canyon was worth it.

Such an easy, short hike and beautiful! My husband and I hiked this just before sunset to watch from the top and it was stunning! We went on a Wednesday evening (5/31) and there were a lot of people but not near as crowded Angel's Landing.

Hiked in May 2018. We only took this route to the Kolob Arch because Kolob Canyon Road was closed. Turns out the Hop Valley Trail itself was more of a treat than the glimpse of the Kolob Arch! I would go this way again, on purpose next time!

Quick steep hike but worth it to stand under Weeping Rock - especially on a hot day. You have to take the shuttle to get to this spot and it is pretty quick to walk up and take a look.

My favorite hike in Zion. We stayed out in the backcountry for one night here at campsite #4. It was absolutely beautiful and there wasn't another soul in sight. The rocks glowed at dusk and the moon shined throughout the night. During the day, the desert got up to about 75-80 degrees at the end of February with high 20s-low 30s at night. An abundance of scenery. Can't recommend it more.

Great vistas throughout the hike. Be prepared for multiple river crossings and ready to hike in miles of sand! Elevation changes vary and super fun and challenging when packing all of your gear. Bring bug repellent! No water sources until Beauty springs.

We did this trail last week. The trail is very sandy so expect to get a good workout. It is relatively flat until you reach the descent into the valley to the campsite. The valley itself has stunning views especially during sunrise. Expect to get your feet wet in the valley as you are going to cross the creek about a dozen times until you reach the hop valley campsite. The portion of the trail from the campsite to the Kolob arch does contain some steep hills but the view of the arch itself is worth it once you arrive. The arch is off in the distance and is easy to miss if you aren’t paying attention to the signs. Relatively few people were walking this trail so it was a great way to get great scenery in without the crowds.

Went out there with a friend, and we did see the white reef. But at the same time we didn't recognize it until the way back. We hiked a little further along the path, and found so really nice views. I would recommend this hike. Super easy, and well worth hike. Definitely spare of the moment.

Just what we were looking for today. Nice, easy walk around the cinder cone. Some nice scenery to boot. This would be a great evening walk with pets and kids.

Oitstanding view at the end. A must do if you visit Zion.

If I didnt want a longer hike this ones good. I did it when I finished hidden canyon late afternoon. The observation deck was popular earlier but near the end of the day not many people were there.

short but great view

Hadn't hiked for 8 months, so we looked for an easy one to get back in the swing. This is an easy trail which parallels the highway. Scenic in spots as it overlooks the lake. Although this is also a mountain biking trail, we did not see anyone on the trail with us today. Great starter hike.

Good little hike if you have small kids..

If you love solitude and an epic view after hiking this trail is for you. Don’t plan on spectacular sights during the trip out. It is very quiet and nice to get away from the crowds. Bring plenty of water. The spring was barely running. I could see this hike being brutal in the middle of the summer in the afternoon. The hike out in the morning was enjoyable with some wind and the hike back got warm. I saw a total of 6 people on the trail.
