Although short in distance (about 2.5 miles and classed as strenuous by the park) this hike is offered a nice challenge for two senior Phoenicians who had not hiked in several months and rarely hiked in the cold. The hike starts at the Weeping Rock Trailhead and climbs steeply through a series of switchbacks to the Hidden Canyon turn off.... More

Hidden canyon sits at the end of a steep 1.5 mile hike with close to a 1,000 in elevation gain. The hike up offer gorgeous views of Angels landing, The White Throne and The Bend. Most of the trail is paved save for the final section which is a narrow path hewn into the rock. Once you reach the top... More

We hike the 3 miles to the entrance of Hidden Canyon, Zion National Park. The trees were orange and red and beautiful. The rocks were lit up by the sun and also a bright red. Near the end of the canyon is an arch which is worth hiking to. It is a relatively easy hike and with some exposure near... More

There aren't a lot of trees in the canyons but if you keep going into this trail further you will see beautiful orange, red, and yellow color in the trees. Fun hike! We were there the last week in October

Another fantastic Zion trail, with lots of changes of scenery as you hike up. The surface of the trail also changes as you go up: the first section was rough cement that gave excellent traction, the second part (which starts shortly after the split from the Observation Point Trail) is broken rock and sand which was a bit difficult, and...

Very good hike about 6 miles round trip and almost 1000 vertical feet rise. It's totally worth the effort.

This was our first hike. I stopped at trails end but my husband and son went on (sign said it was okay) scrambling over the rocks. There are only a few sticky spots but was otherwise pretty easy.

We hiked the Hidden Canyon trail prior to doing the 8 mile Observation Trail, having decided to bypass Angel's Landing hike on this trip. For those individuals who want a short, alternative to either one of those trails just mentioned, this is a good choice, as long as one has no issues with steep inclines or sandstone ledges where chains...

Lovely hike, not too short and not too long. Beautiful views along the entire length of the trail. DO explore the actual canyon; we saw some people who turned around once they reached the stone landing at the mouth of the canyon.
