This trail is short, just 1 mile round trip. It is, however, a bit challenging because it is uphill, on a narrow (sometimes extremely narrow) trail. There were many icy spots during late December when we visited. People recommended traction devices, but we managed just fine without them. Trekking poles helped a lot. Beautiful views along the way, but once... More

We did this hike with my 70 year old parents and my 6, 9 and 12 year olds. It's fantastic for all. After the initial stairs and paths, you get to a part where there's just a lot of mounds of rocks and my kids loved this open part where they could climb the mounds. The views are beautiful during...

If you want an overview look of the canyon but am too scared or not able to hike Angel's Landing, I'd recommend this hike!! I sure was not disappointed! This hike is usually listed as a fairly easy hike. I'd say, it's fairly easy but there are some spots that are quite narrow and scary. If you can brave through... More

This hike will be the biggest bang for your buck in terms of getting spectacular views of the canyon after a relatively easy hike

We went to Zion from friends recommendaitons and we were not disapointed. We only had 1 day so all the below comes with the qualification that we only spent 1 day in the park. If I could only do one thing (in Winter while Angels landing is closed) I would do the canyon overlook trail. Gives you a fantastic view... More

Just did this walk as an entree to Zion hikes this year. I'm scared of heights, so this being my first hike there in a while, I had to push myself a bit until I got used to it. Fortunately, there were not too many other hikers but there were a couple nice gentlemen who kept an eye on me... More

The parking lot is small and immediately on the right as you leave the tunnel travelling east. The hike is just across the road, and is short but very scenic with a very good chance of seeing big horned goats that can balance on anything.

Beautiful, fun hike to incredible vistas of the valley. hike along deep Pine Creek canyon, 1 mile round trip, great for a lunch stop or extra hike to see different perspective of the valley.
