The coolest part for us the negotiating of tight trails near the top that have you facing thousand foot drop-offs to one side. It definitely got the blood flowing. Unfortunately, we found the actual "Hidden Canyon" underwhelming because we were expecting more of a slot type (narrower) canyon per the signs suggestion at the beginning of the trail. The canyon...

This is a short and technical hike off of Observation Point trail. It was very enjoyable as we walked along edge of a cliff via chains in a few sections. It eventually takes you into a no-outlet canyon trail so go beyond the sign that says "End of marked trail" for at least a mile. It is a great way... More

It rained while we were there - that really sucked especially during the hikes however putting all of the rain aside there was still nothing at the top of the canyon hike YOU WERE in the canyon NOT above it and the canyon is very narrow and not a good vista. Also, there was nothing there when we got to... More

You can do that hike very quickly. It is lovely but there are many others to do - if you have the time and are fit enough. It seems that you can walk for quite a while in that Canyon without reaching the end. The approach has a nice view as you walk along the cliff.

We started this hike at around 7:15 in the morning and were back down to where the path splits off to Observation Point by 10:30. This hike is about three miles round trip. Once you get to the canyon level itself it is fairly level walking. There are some exposed portions of the trail where you do not want to... More

I loved this hike. We did it in the morning and the weather was perfect, not too hot yet. The beginning is tough with switchbacks, the same trail that starts off to Observation Point. Take your time and drink water. The upper part of the trail gets interesting, narrow and steep with chains along the cliff wall to hold onto.... More

The hike was strenuous to get to the mouth of the canyon. The steep switchbacks will give your legs a workout. I have no problem with heights so I had no problem getting around the chain areas - rarely needed to hang on. Others around us turned back, but I wish they wouldn't have. The views of angels landing are... More

One of the wait staff at Red Rock Grill told us about this hike. She mentioned the chains, but since we'd already conquered Angels Landing, we thought no sweat. After the switchbacks, wg=hich are pretty steep, you get to the first set of chains. They aren't so bad. The second set is more challenging & takes you around sheer cliffs... More

I recently took my boyfriend to Zion National Park for his birthday. We arrived at the park in the afternoon so we only had time for a few short hikes and we decided to immediately start with a strenuous climb. The Hidden Canyon trailhead was off of the Weeping Rock shuttle stop. Weeping Rock was visible immediately and was only... More

I have tried to hike all the short hikes in Zions while on my trips down to AZ. This one is short and actually a little bit of a challenge which makes it a worthwhile stop.
