Easy enough hike, could be at the top and down again in under an hour. If you are looking to stretch the legs before a more advance hike I suggest this one. Views are incredible from above

our first time to zion and our first hike. it was short and fairly easy for adults. we have a 7 and 10 year old and there were a few ledges that made my heart pound. otherwise there was no complaining. the view at the end was beautiful. parking was tough, we arrived at 10am.

easy hike, if you can call it that. it is less than 30 minutes but a fun experience if you have the time.

Short, easy hike. Nice cool place

Although the grade is steep to walk up to the falls, I didn't feel this was a hike - more of a walk up to the falls. This is a good trail for families because it's paved and wide. Just be careful nobody slips on the water.
This is a short hike, so every time I'm in Zion, I tack it onto my other hikes.

Easy mile, only took 12 minutes including a stop after the initial stair climb. Great view at the end.

Great views but beware that this hike can be challenging because of narrow hiking paths which are dangerously close to cliffs. For anyone wary of their balance or does not like to hike close to severe drop offs, don’t go on this hike

very short steep hike, less than 10 minutes to the top.

Terrific views of the canyon! Relatively easy hike, but as mentioned you’ll want good sturdy shoes as there are a couple of dicey spots. Definitely recommend.

I wish people would not describe this trail as easy. It certainly is not long, but if you are not confident when the trail narrows to about 14 inches across then don’t bother. It is very frustrating to climb most of the way only to reach a point where a slight misstep could send you plunging to the bottom of the canyon. I was terrified but knew my limits. I turned back.

Easy short trail with very nice plants and very good views

Great reward for little effort! Please wear proper shoes if you have them - I saw a lot of people wearing sandals or even runners and slipping around. This trail has drop offs and could definitely be dangerous if not done properly!
In saying that, I would definitely recommend it :) the cave was a nice place to cool down on a 41 (115) degree day. Only probably took an hour all up, including time at the viewpoint, stopping and waiting for *numerous* people (its crowded and a narrow trail haha) and me not being in any hurry.
I was lucky enough to get a park somehow, but it’s right turn only (you can’t directly enter from the east entrance without U turns) and there aren’t many parks!

Nice moderate mid level view. Nothing over the top stunning, except a few mule deer. Is a nice short hike to wind down a long day.

Awesome trail- our first trail hiked in Zion. Very scenic and only took an hour or so. The drive through the tunnel and windy, breathtaking drive was part of the adventure! Hiked with 2 teen boys and they had fun. We saw a few lizards along the way and hiked a bit off trail for some added adventure.

Fantastic hike! Easy and relatively short. We stayed at Ponderosa and drove over to trailhead. 3.5 hours total roundtrip. The view from the cable housing quite literally took my breath away. The remains of the draw works and the history of it were very interesting. I highly recommend this hike.

Interesting short hike that is steep for the most part. The information on plants is nice as you go up. The water coming off the rocks is refreshing.

What a great trail. The kids loved the hike up and the views were great. This trail is worth it.

love this trail and will definitely go again next time!

One of my favorite places on Earth. The waterfall looks like a fantasy scene dropped into the desert. 4x4 high-clearance is best, but we did get a Subaru Forester in after grinding both bumpers. Good all terrain or off-road tires needed. Some try to hike it, but that's 11+ miles and extremely hot on a road where you'll constantly be dirt-blasted by passing vehicles.

An amazing park for the family. We fish, bbq, paddle board, kayak, and play on the playground.

Backpacked from Kolob Arch side down to the camping spots (a mile from Kolob Arch) then backpacked back up the same direction. There’s running water for filtering. It was so pretty. My first backpacking trip.

Gorgeous view. A bit difficult to find without a map but once we found the base it was well worth it. Our kids hiked it to the top with us ages 3-14.

This trail should not be rated easy!! Easy = I can take grandma on a short hike and she will be fine. Easy = I can hike this in sandals.

Nope! You need proper hiking footwear and anyone with balance or mobility issues of any kind should not be on this trail. This trail has steep sections (especially in the beginning) minor rock scrambles, and some exposed areas with steep drop offs without railings! There is one area in particular that was really sketchy - it’s very narrow, slick rock, and still wet due to recent monsoon rainstorms - no railings when it should really have them. One slip and it’s over....

Any fear of heights, don’t do this! The overlook is nice but there are better hikes in the park so don’t be disappointed if you can’t find parking.

Very short hike but a fun stopping point. My 5 year old was surprised and proclaimed, “We are done already?!” Our kids quickly tipped their heads back and stuck out their tongues to catch the falling water drops. Pretty views, nice and cool under the water and shade, quick hike. Add it in with a few other hikes since it’s so short.

We hiked this with our four kids ages 5, 6, 8, and 10 and we all loved it! Variety of terrain but totally doable. The views of the canyon were amazing! We even spotted some mountain goats. Do this hike, you won’t regret it!

Short steep walk to weeping rocks
Worth the hike
Amazing views and cooling off in weeping water

Beautiful hike, the toughest part is the initial entrance upwards, otherwise it's fairly easy. We arrived at 6:45 am, plenty of parking. We got to see the sun rising against the landscape, it was not busy and extremely peaceful. We also got to see a family of mountain goats up close!

Wouldn’t take the time to do. It was very hot. And the “ruins” at the top were a unkept information board and some black plastic tarp. The view at the top was the watchman campground and the visitor center parking lot.

So more of a park and look. This is a great picture and experience on the way up towards observation point or hidden canyon. It is cool to see the constant rain of water. However, dont make this your only reason of riding the bus out there.

I think this is a fine hike to do, especially if you are seeing Zion for the first time. However, Angles Landing and Observation Point have far superior views to this. This is a short hike, and easy for kids. However I just do not seeing this more than a 2 stars when there is so much Zion has to offer.
