By far our favorite thing at the Zion! I went Thursday morning at 5:30 a.m. by myself and lined up to get in. It was pitch black but I found other cars parked ahead of me waiting as well. Parking lot at the trailhead might hold about 30 cars, I'm not quite sure. Walked the trail at sunrise and it's absolutely gorgeous. Later that day, around 5:30 p.m. they began letting cars go up again as it was completely full about 30 minutes after I arrived earlier that morning. My teen boys absolutely loved getting in the water and walking a ways through the river. It is truly that awesome! Water is very cold and the current was fast in several spots. We had flimsy water shoes knowing we weren't going to do a whole lot of walking through the Narrows. We were fine for about an hour, then pretty chilled. Would recommend for older children, not young kids due to the fast current. At times the water is waist deep on a 6 foot adult. If you're debating on whether to do it my answer is YES! It was an amazing experience!

Great easy trail! We went to the river access and our doggie took a swim! Recommend for the entire family!

Beautiful hike, wonderful views at the top. My friend and I only made it to Hepworth due to time restrictions. Outside of the dried river path in the canyon, there is no clear path so downloading a map is a must. The tips shown on the map were super helpful with some spots where we weren’t sure how to traverse. No climbing gear needed, but hiking shoes with a good grip for all the slick rock is definitely necessary. Also, apparently this hike is actually closed currently for COVID-19 reasons, and we were yelled at by a park ranger at the East tunnel gate when we got out. The guys at the info center in Zion said otherwise but oh well. Hope people can get back to this trail soon.

It’s hard for me to trash a trail. I gave it a 4...but this could’ve easily been a 3. First issue: Distance is inaccurate. Clocked 17.5 and I did the entire loop. Second: Following the West rim leads to some badass views! You’re exposed to the sun the entire time though! Be prepared Third: I wouldn’t recommend continuing too far into the west rim trail after you reach the top of the Mesa. Telephone Canyon is simply NOT worth the effort. And apparently most people know this..,the trail is really overgrown in many many spots.

I can’t begin to say how disappointed I am at this “dog-friendly trail”. The ONLY dog-friendly trail in this whole park and it’s black asphalt lava lane. It does have a River your dog can go in which is also loaded with children and adults but no paths to walk beside it. So you are stuck to a trail that your dog can’t walk on between the lava, sand spurs getting caught in their paws and what I can mean wheat which are like little daggers to skin. I was very much looking forward to this trail but found it unbearable for my dog 10 minutes in. And bc Zion doesn’t allow u to bring ur dog anywhere else (even on lead) we drove for 2 days and can’t experience this beautiful place.

Beautiful hike! We left in the morning which was perfect-by 10am it was getting warm and more crowded on the trail. Easy with great views of the park for what’s open right now!

Such a pretty trail! Came early before the crowds. Plenty of parking. Very easy for kids/older folks. We loved it!

We walked about 6 miles in and it was totally worth it although it does get hard- you’ll have to climb rocks/waterfalls to keep going. Would definitely do it again!

INACURATE. I'm giving this 2 stars only for the fact that this description is entirely misleading. 3 of us with Garmin devices clocked 14mi just from the beginning of this trail to the split of Telephonic and West Rim, at the Spring and back. There is no way we would have been any less than 18 miles had we done the telephonic/WR loop at the top. The views from the spring were great, but for the energy expenditure your best bet is to follow other recommendations, and stop at Walter wiggles. If you can manage the difficult trail with long stretches of direct sun, it's an excellent calorie burn and a great experience. If your time at Zion is limited, cut this short and fit in other things.

Excellent trail. Great views. Do the loop at the top!

1. At the entrance past visitors center but before Zion Lodge there was a ranger, and road to Zion Lodge was closed. So we saw everyone parking and walking in. We assumed it was closed off to all traffic. Well to drive in you have to wait until cars come out then you can drive in. Unfortunately we walked to Zion Lodge 3 miles (1hr). 2. Hiked up to the point where it splits to Rim Road and Angels landing (closed) and there are restrooms, and the hike continues on as I saw people do this hike recorded here to Cabin Spring in 4.5 hrs. Well... 3. It’s Very strenuous, hard on your feet and ankles, and there is a drizzle of water at the very top in Cabin spring. Total hiked 13 miles, about 3000ft elevation, took 3 hrs to get there, and 3 hours back. The view is great but not WoooooooooWw. I think we were more drained out than anything. 4. I believe MOST people’s reviews are only up to the first scenic view which is after WALTERS WIGGLES. So... that’s definitely a smaller better hike. 5. I had a different image in mind from the top of cabin spring (google it). It was mostly covered with trees. This is where you can loop around and choose telephonic trail, cabin springs, or W rim trail. 6. I would’ve just stopped at the first place everyone stops where it leads to the closed Angels landing trail. That view was the prettiest. At least I can say I’ve hiked it, total of 7-8 hours. Wow.

Gorgeous trail. Multiple spots to go off trail and cool down on the Virgin river. One of the only trails that allows dogs in Zion.

Hiked this just before sunset. It was a worthwhile payoff.

Great easy trail to start with for the day. Great views at the top

very crowded and most are not experienced hikers so lots of picture taking and stopping in the middle of the trail. definitely an easy hike

Sooo pretty. Go early before it gets really warm.

Walter’s wiggles, and other switchbacks are worth it when you see the view. Not too heavily trafficked after Angels Landing.

This trail is so much fun, its a must if you haven't tried it!

Arrived at 11 am and the parking lot on Visitor Center was almost full, but we were able to get a spot in less than a minute or so upon entering the premises. We took the Pa’rus unpaved trail near the river to avoid the crowds (this trail gives you a little bit of adventure, just be careful not to slip). We arrived at the end of the Pa’rus trail at 12:30 pm and took a lunch by the river. Then, we took the paved trail going back to the visitor center at exactly 1 pm. We got back at 2 pm and took a drive to take photos with The Great Arch. Right now, entry fees are not being collected and Shuffle Bus are not operating. In addition, Scenic Drive is often close and some areas are close as well. But I am still satisfied so I am giving Zion a 5 stars.

Great hike! Even on a busy Memorial Day weekend we only saw one other group (although the parking lot was full?). You can also take a trail that goes to the right after the parking lot to the East and it cuts in a cool tunnel under the road! We found it on our way back out. It was a temperate day with a nice breeze but no shade so I would not do this on a hot day with no recent rain. Unfortunately most of the pools were almost gone so just tadpoles and nasty water but we will definitely go back if there was more water!

did this early spring. really good views and easy to navigate. great beginner hike

Good paved trail, other dirt paths closer to the river. This trail is also good for wildlife, because on this trail we saw two Mule Deer and a lot of friendly squirrels.

had a great time. shuttles are down and parking fills up fast. recommend being one of the first cars when they open or later in afternoon when people leave and they let more in. its a 8mile hike just to get to the beginning of narrows from the scenic entrance. water was little cold but got used to it and had a blast. Wear hiking boot not water shoes and bring hiking sticks
