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 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 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 bubbles 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!

“Glorious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

It's hard to describe the view point. After a short easy walk you suddenly arrive at the view point that is breathtaking.

We just sat down for a while and enjoyed the magnificance.

“Best view for the effort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

This would be considered a very easy trail by most hikers. It's less than a mile round trip with minimal elevation gain. Yet there is a great view of the canyon at the end. The trail is really not difficult and there are railings in the areas where there is a drop-off. I rated it 5 stars for the the great view to be had for the relatively minimal effort required to get there. However, if you're looking for solitude, this is not the hike for you. This trail is heavily traveled. Note that mid day is probably the best time to take photos of the canyon as much of it will be covered in shadow during early morning or late afternoon.
