Incredibly crowded trail, we even went late in the day and it felt like walking around Frontierland in Disneyland. Paths are paved and easily accessible for small children and strollers, virtually anyone. This is a heavily trafficked trail by a lot of non-hikers in jeans and loafers, not a lot of trail etiquette, so pack your patience. Views are nice but hard to enjoy. Swimming is not allowed even though several parents were allowing their kids to swim or bathe, not sure which.

There’s not a lot to say that hasn’t already been said, this trail is incredible but not for the faint of heart. Go early or late in the day to avoid the crowds, bring gloves with good grip for holding onto the chains on the rocks. If you do get scared, please move off the trail! There were several people that were clinging on to the chains, holding on for dear life, sitting on the ground in the middle of the walkways, making it very dangerous for the rest of us.

This hike was amazing but a doozy! Starts off switchbacks, levels out for a bit (mostly) then another set of switchbacks (more intense) before leveling out for the remainder. Layers would be a good idea since the trail goes through various areas of the canyon and isn’t always well lit/warm or vice versa. The view is so worth it!

Did this hike the afternoon we got intoZion. Not too hard but definitely worked up a sweat. Beautiful view and walking access from the visitors center.

This was worth every penny for the guided hike. We enjoyed getting to try out some beginner canyoneering skills. It's beautiful in the fiery furnace.

Easy, fantastic views, neat biological soil communities along the way. Even after sunrise, Mesa Arch is breathtaking.

Sad to see so many recent reviews saying it's too crowded to enjoy. When I was there in June 2016 it was crowded at the lower pool but the middle and upper pools were nice and we were treated to the sight of some deer drinking from them. They weren't emerald colored though, I suppose from people trying to swim in them.

Breathtaking. Take two or three times the water you think you'll need. The hike up the slickrock affords you no shade and can be brutal even as even starts to set in.

I bought the shirt, and then I had to do it. Tip: go as early as you can get in the park. The crowds start coming after that, and you do NOT want to be stuck behind them when you're all hanging on the side of a cliff holding the same chain. Plus, there are people coming up who are not prepared or in shape for this hike and you do not want to get stuck behind them. Great hike if you don't mind a little fear factor. I'm not afraid of heights, but even I was a little uncertain in some parts. Just keep climbing.

A very enjoyable hike starting out as a ramble along the Fremont River and orchards and then climbing up to a beautiful view of the fold and Fruita.

A great little hike through time. Though I didn't go up to the tanks, this hike takes you through an imposing gorge with towering rock walls that was the main route through the Waterpocket fold before Rte. 24 was completed. On its walls you can see petroglyphs left by ancient peoples and names carved by early pioneers and travelers. The stories those walls hold !

A steady uphill hike, difficult to follow in some spots. On the way to the viewpoint you get great views of Hickman Bridge and Pectol Pyramid. The fold rises like the bow of ship and take note of the black volcanic rocks that add a touch of the surreal to the trail. The landscape and vistas won't disappoint.

extra rad! obvious advice, but bring layers, you'll probably want to change multiple times while hiking as temps vary drastically through the different terrain of the hike.

This trail takes you past several arches, each special in it's grandeur, such as Landscape Arch and others as a frame to the valleys below. Other spectacular features are the sandstone fins on the way to the Double O. Hike traverses both gentle terrain and some scrambling on the slickrock. As with most of the popular hikes, start out earlier as it is less crowded and the weather a bit cooler.

Enjoyable hike to the sand, broken, and tapestry arches.

One of the most iconic arches that there is! This moderate hike is a great way to end a day in the park, I've always hiked this in mid-afternoon and found that the crowds were manageable. The trail steadily climbs upward and could be challenging for those who are not avid hikers or are out of shape. Enjoy a snack and photo opportunity at the end to really soak in the spectacle that is The Delicate Arch.

Fabulous hike! Best bang for your buck if you're wanting to see as many arches as possible in a day. Some areas could be concerning for hikers who are scared of heights or who aren't sure footed. For the typical hiker, this is a 'must-do' in my books!

Went up by Weeping Rock, and this is my favorite hike in the Zion National Park. Once you break off from the observation point path, the crowds disappear. This hike is truly beautiful and well worth it, and the views from the top are one in a million

I found this trail to be somewhat difficult. The incline was pretty consistent throughout the hike and perhaps I wasn't quite adjusted to the altitude yet. Bring plenty of water. I hiked in early April and was blessed with above average weather. There were plenty of people but it wasn't overwhelming and didn't take away from the beauty of the place. Some areas were more narrow than others and near the edge so be mindful and definitely have good shoes! The arch was amazing but there were a line of people waiting to get their photo. Incredible view from many points on the hike.
