“A good shortish hike”
Review of Watchman Trail

Well worth doing this trail as it starts from the visitor centre, and therefore parking is easy. It is a bit of a climb, but views at the end are stunning, and when we went, for most of the way we were on our own.

We hiked this trail with our kids 8/10. It was not easy, but not too strenuous. It was perfect. It winds up the canyon onto a beautiful vista view. We tried more strenuous hikes, such as Hidden Canyon, and got a mile up, but those were too difficult and dangerous for us with our kids. The trail here never has that "drop off" feel, but you still have to be careful. Other than hiking the Narrows, which was simply the greatest, this was our favorite hike in Zion.

We started our Zion adventure with the Watchman Trail, which was an easy hike with a decent elevation change. Lots of fun and good views from the top.

This trail offers Alice hike that isn't strenuous. The views are nice and of the virgin river and the first portion of the canyon. There aren't many people on the trail which is nice. Watch for fire ants on the trail. Do not put anything othe ground here or you may have an ant tag along and their bite is nasty.

Nice morning hike. Would do this before the sun is beating down on you! In the morning, the sun is behind the mountains. Can see lots of cacti going up and the whole valley from the top.
