“Sandy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Don't recommend if you just got done doing observation point. Lots of sand and never ending slippery rocks. You won't miss it

“Totally pleasant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

Cool off with the drops of water that weep from the rocks! The view is great too! It's an uphill climb the whole way up... Just go slow and enjoy!

“Excellent fun hike with great views and a natural arch.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Zion is one of the most beautiful national parks we've ever been too, coming in 2nd to Yosemite.
We had around a full day and a half in the park and wanted to see as much as possible.
We did the Canyon overlook trail, Emerald pools lower, middle and upper trails, weeping rock, Riverside walk trail and our final one was Hidden canyon.
If we ever visit again we will make sure to be ready and prepared and have enough time for the Narrows and Angels landing.
Out of all the trails we did Hidden Canyon was our favorite.
If you have to take the shuttle stop at the Weeping rock stop, you'll see the signs for hidden canyon along with a few others.
The trail is 2.2 miles round trip but add maybe an extra mile round trip if you scramble the canyon to the arch.
It was uphill switchbacks pretty much the whole way, but with beautiful views of Angels landing
Once you get closer to the canyon you have a few areas with chains, but it is nothing too scary and I'm not really good with heights.
Then once you reach the canyon you have the choice of going on or turning back, I would say go on and see the natural arch, there is a little bit of scrambling required but that adds to the fun.
The arch is very pretty and there are some other great things to see going into the canyon.
The trip down is going to be easier and faster just because it's downhill the whole way.
This is a definitely must do hike for Zion, do not miss it.

“Nice views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

If you (like us) can't get to observation point, this is a good compromise. It's a workout not impossible, lots of good views. Clamber over the rock at the entrance to the " hidden canyon" for a short walk through a narrow canyon. (not really a slot canyon since there's no river in it) .
