Great trail for those not sensitive to heights
Sep 2021
We attempted to hike this trail but some portions had a smaller walkway and that doesn't work well if you have a sensitivity (fear in other words) of heights. Some of the rocks that make up the pathway are slick so be aware. Enjoy this is you can.

Great for sunset!
Sep 2021 • Couples
We did this hike just before sunset. It’s a short hike - only about 1/2 mile in. It climbs around the side but there are railings and isn’t too challenging. A beautiful spot at the top with gorgeous views. Highly recommend!

Great short hike
Jul 2021 • Friends
Awesome short hike that provides a huge overhang to sit under for shade. A lot of reviews mention fear of heights, we personally did not find that to be the case, handrails are provided. There is a short bridge you go over. Well worth it.

Great view and smaller crowds! Easy hike. Highly recommended to avoid the crowds. No facilities and rustic parking.

Great hike for family
Jun 2021 • Family
Good hike for kids with lots of things to explore and see. Arrived 7:30a.m. and found parking. Elevated hike, but easily managed. Great views. One of our favorite hikes in Zion.

Great View!
Jun 2021
One of the best hikes that lead to an amazing, breathtaking view when you reach the top! We went in the morning because it would be more difficult on ht summer afternoons!

Up Up & Up !
Jun 2021
This hike is all “up” . It can be a little difficult. It is definitely different views, environment, and scenery than other hikes throughout Zion because you are starting pretty high up to begin with. Some narrow ledges & lots of steps-be in shape for this one.

Nice view, short hike
Jun 2021 • Family
Depending on how crowded the park is, parking is the tricky part. Park right after the tunnel. The hike is short and has some interesting spots along the way. The view at the end is grand and wide. There plenty of room to walk around and take it in.

Great View
Jun 2021 • Couples
This is a short hike and has a great view at the end. Parts are narrow and drop offs steep so care must be taken. Many chipmunks at the top but the good news was that no one seemed to be feeding them. Worth the hike.

Moderate hike with tricky spots
May 2021
The hike is enjoyable, with some narrow places, steep ledges, and slippery spots (watch for sand on steps). There are a variety of good views at the top - plan for 20 minutes or so after reaching the end. It is an out-and-back trail. It was a good introduction to the park for us. You can hike this without using the shuttle system. Go through the tunnels on the Zion-Mt. Carmel scenic drive and then look for parking. I'd recommend taking the rest of the scenic drive after you complete the hike.
