The views throughout the entire trail are impressive..as is everything in Zion. Go early to avoid the crowds.

Took a guided hike with a park ranger. He explained the historic significance of the site, and the NPS efforts to preserve it. Please be respectful while at False Kiva and stay off the structures. The walk up is quite strenuous, on eroding thin switchbacks going up and down, but views and shade at False Kiva are beyond worth the trek. Highly recommend, with caution! Hike is unmarked, and could easily be lost.

long monotonous beginning straight up one large rock, then flat for a while before reaching some really interesting terrain before the arch. Delicate Arch was packed when I went on a Sunday afternoon, and rather steep, but still amazing! Bigger than expected! Parking can be tough on busy days. Bring LOTS of water.

Really lovely hike. Went mid-March and it was still pretty snowy, but we were able to get up without any kind of specific hiking gear. If you do go near the winter, I would recommend gripping shoes, though. The view at the top is very nice.

Amazing and Death Defying.

I skate this trail.


on White Pine Lake Trail

Challenging trail especially in the snow because some areas aren't very packed so you end up knee deep or more. Most people choose the Red Pine Trail over this one because it's a little shorter and a little less steep. This one is more peaceful because there were no other hikers just two skiers. I'll definitely try this one again when everything is thawed out more.

Not a very steep hike! The ruins can only be seen from across a stream, but they were still cool to see. I just wish the trail wasn't next to the road almost the whole way, it somewhat takes away from a true nature experience.

We took the Kayenta trail from the Grotto bus stop towards the Emerald pools. The trail was pretty easy going, but the views both up and down the canyon were pretty amazing. This trail is definitely worth the time to explore.

This trail is no secret, but it is everything it is hyped up to be and more. My friend and I did it as a spur on a longer overnight journey into Zion’s indescribably ethereal backcountry via the West Rim Trail, which I would highly recommend. There are beautiful views from the trail camps, and it really takes you through all of the classic Zion environments. The landing definitely slowed us down a bit thanks to the crowds. Walter’s Wiggles, the switchbacks on the initial climb up the canyon, are difficult, exposed and steep, but the spur up to Angel’s Landing itself is not as physically taxing as it is nerve-wracking—the Trail gets to be an extremely narrow ridge at points, and you feel like a bighorn sheep! As everyone has mentioned, start at the very first light, if not earlier—that’s the best way in the desert, to beat the heat and the peeps. Nothing like jumping into the Virgin when you descend back into the valley!

We went after an overnight snow storm. The snow was melting and the water volume was up because of it. The falls between the middle and lower pools had three different falls, with quite a bit of water volume. The upper falls was simply amazing. When you tried to stand by the upper pool, you were getting drenched, it felt like it was creating its own wind, and you felt very chilled.

This trail had way to many people on it for me to give it more than 4 stars. It was a true traffic jam at times between the middle falls and the upper fallls.

Did this the day after Angel's Landing, and we thought it was very cool to look down from Observation Point and see where we hiked the day before. The way up is tiring but lunch at the top was beautiful, and let us rest for an easy hike down. While not the most well-known hike in the park, I would definitely argue it's a must-do if you visit!

Oh boy, I've done longer hikes with more elevation change, but the switchbacks here are one of the toughest stretches of trail I've found. Trail gets easier after that part though, as it's just being careful navigating the narrow parts with a bunch of people passing you. Definitely among the best day hikes I've completed; the view at the end is utterly worth it!

One of my all time favorite hikes in Utah valley. Be careful at the fork because it is very easy to miss.

Easy access to the trailhead. An easy trail with lots of shade and thick vegetation.

Very pleasant hike! The slope is pretty gentle all the way to Elehpant Rock. There was quite a bit of fresh now on the ground on 3-18 but the trail was easy without the need for microspikes.

I snowshoe and hike this trail all year long...it’s usually pretty crowded and sometimes tough for mountain bikes to squeeze past the hikers. That said, I love the location, the ease of parking and getting right on the trail and the scenery. Elephant Rock isn’t the best reward after a long hike but it’s a great workout.

Easy hike , beautiful when we went, three waterfalls overhead so amazing

easy trail for sunday afternoon, bring your dogs 3 waste bags stations, no reason to leave anything behind

Fantastic trail! This was one of the highlights of our trip to Arches.

Definitely do the entire loop if possible. We actually found the primitive trail portion to be easier than the main trail because there was less time on the windy, exposed high rocks — also, the primitive trail is very well marked with cairns, so if you keep an eye out for those you won’t get lost.

Fantastic hike! I would call it moderate. Be careful not to lose the trail at the end or you’ll end up walking on a somewhat treacherous path around the arch itself (which we accidentally did.)

We were there earlier this week and loved this hike! It is definitely challenging but worth it. No ice when we went but the rocks were slick. My 12 and 14 year old boys loved it. Definitely hit this trail first as it gets busy! We went around 8:30 and it was fine...a little cold but bearable. We also hit Double Arch, Windows and Balanced Rock. Those were our favorites. Drove by Fiery Furnace overlook(very cool) but cant hike that without a pass..looks pretty scary too!

Epic hike! Make sure you follow the cairns - they’re tricky to spot at times. Also the secondary trail on here leads to some fun swimming holes - my dogs had a blast swimming in them before hiking in the sun.

I did this hike with my boyfriend a couple days ago. We started at Angels Landing and ended at campsite 8 in Telephone Canyon. It is approximately 17 miles round trip. There is a lot of ascending on the way there, it took us approximately 5 and half hours to get to our camp. Campsite 8 was a haul, but offered good protection from the wind and was close to the water source. The trip back was mostly down hill and we knocked it out in a little over 3 hours. Beautiful views from start to finish! The trip out was difficult with the extra weight on my back. Be sure to pack enough water.

Love this little hike

Easy trail almost 1.5 miles. The only challenge are the steps other than that.... beautiful scenery!

The wind was bitter at Dog Lake, but snowshoeing in and out was great. There was enough fresh snow to warrant snowshoes, and few enough people to make you feel isolated.

I actually liked the view here better than Angels Landing. And it wasn’t as crowded.
