We hiked about a mile out and a mile back. A good trail for beauty, relative seclusion for being close to the road, and a good workout with lots of ups and downs designed for mountain bikes. Wednesday afternoon saw one bike and no other hikers. Wildflowers were just coming in mid-March.
The trail systems are very confusing and not well marked at all, you get half way up a trail and there will be a random "mountain biking only " sigh and you have to turn around and go back down.
I'm a fairly advanced hiker, as well as my friend and we wandered around for like three hours just trying to complete the trail to ghost falls.

In early March wife and I hiked to campsite #6 and stayed the night. Nighttime temps were in the mid 20's, but our trip landed on the coldest night of the week. The section of the trail between the road and campsite 6 is very easy, with only 3-4 sections of steep downhill/uphill. Other than that it's flat and makes for a quick hike. We saw a few other groups during our stay, but it was not crowded. The trail runs alongside the wash/creek, sometimes butting right up against it, and at other times the trail veers 50 yards or so away from the creek. I'm sure some people hike the creek itself, but this would require significantly more effort - the trail is well defined. We thought the views were fantastic, but certainly not the best in Zion. This is a great winter hike.
