I picked this hike as an alternative over Angels Landing during Memorial Day Weekend and it proved to be the right choice. It was WAY less crowded and completely gorgeous. The first mile or so is a serious climb. But then, there was sweeping cliff...More

Wide, steady rise of a well maintained trail at the beginning that tired me, but grade lessened as we snaked around edge of the cliffs. Trail often narrow with chain handholds as you climb. Maintained trail ended and scrambling began at mouth of canyon. An...More

Hidden Canyon is our second most favourite hike in Zion NP (after Angels Landing). It also has chained sections with steep drop-offs, andante inside the canyon very minor canyoneering skills are required (all easy) to proceed. Not as busy as some other trails in Zion...More

After a morning of canyoneering, we asked our guide to suggest a good afternoon activity in the park that wasn't as crowded as the Emerald Pools. He suggested this one. This hike starts at the trailhead to the more ambitious Observation Point, but then splits...More

This was a great hike with totally beautiful views all around. It's dicey in some places so you have to be careful not to roll an ankle or hurt your knee. But it is worth the risk for sure. Great for a family just make...More

If you want to go past the trail and actually go into the canyon it'll probably be too difficult for a 6 year old. Some of the areas required a bit of climbing
