“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

A short hike, that was fairly easy but, very scenic! Bring your camera right up to the edge if you'd like. Only one short fence with a sign with information about the canyon, otherwise there's no barrier...get as close as you dare to!

“Beautiful view, best chance to see big horn sheep”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

This was a pretty little hike with a nice view of a side-canyon at the end and some good looks at slot canyons throughout. There are some narrow ledges that may be nerve-wracking for anyone afraid of heights. A park guide told us that you can see big horn sheep from this hike on occasion, but we didn't get that lucky. Still a good, short hike. Total it took us an hour with relaxing and enjoying the view at the top.

This is the one trail I always take visitors on! The hike is real easy and the views at the end will awe you. If you're visiting the area don't miss this easy hike.

“Nice shorter hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

This one I did with my 8 and 11 year old. Simple hike with some stairs. Nice view down into the Canyon with the long tunnel over to your left. Less than an hour in and out.

“Easy Hike for a Great View!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

My husband and I did this hike last August (along with several others at Zion) and really enjoyed it. The hike was relatively easy with beautiful views, especially at the top where you look down the entire east canyon. It's hot that time of year, so take water with you and be sure to wear decent hiking shoes. Too many people with no water and in flip flops on hiking trails, duh!
