Keep going past the maintained trail. It's a pretty easy hike on the trail, but eventually you end up at the entrance to the real hidden canyon. It's beautiful and wonderful inside there, but you will have to do some scrambling and put in a...More

Hidden Canyon trail was challenging with the ledge crossings and sand. It led to a magnificent surprise at the end with this beautiful canyon that was cool in temperature, filled with more interesting features to climb or take pictures. There was even an arch near...More

This hike was recommended to us by another hiker. I am glad we listened to him. This was one of the more enjoyable hikes for us during our visit to Zion. The beginning has several switchbacks with minimal shade in the afternoon. Once the trail...More
