This is a great hike, and honestly a good warmup for the chains at Angel's Landing. Some great views on the way up, a few narrow areas with chains, and then you'll come to sign that says "Mouth of Hidden Canyon, End of Maintained Trail"...More

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

This 2.5 mile, 2-3 mile hike is best attempted early in the day. The hike is strenuous but you are rewarded with incredible views of the canyon once you get up there. The trail follows along a cliff face to the mouth of a narrow...More

I hiked this one after heading up East Rim for a few miles. About 500 vertical feet up from the Weeping Rock trail head they share a start. The Hidden Canyon Trail was awesome! Beautiful views, cool chains to aid in ascent and a small...More

Great hike that has some small obstacles to climb before reaching an arch near the end. My 16, 14 and 12 year old thought it was a blast. We did canyoneering the day before, so we thought the hike was pretty tame as far as...More

This hike is very easy and short. Starts off with some switch backs then around a boulder with a chain (this part was actually cool!) then continues into a hidden canyon. Then... You come to a sign that says the hike ends. All around the...More

We did this hike before continuing to observation point. Hindsight, we would have skipped it and just did observation point.

Do not miss this hike!! This is like a mini version of Angel’s Landing, but I thought it was actually better and more fun than Angel’s Landing. Switchbacks to start with great views that come to some very fun chain areas – but only a...More
