Aggressive hike, last half mile sketchy climb with incredible views. The hike is pretty all the way.
Hard. This is my personal favorite of all the hikes in Zion that don't require a permit. If you haven't been to Zion before then I'd highly recommend it. I would say it is one of the more difficult hikes as there is quite a bit of incline. Also be aware that towards the end of the hike if you…
Angel's landing is spectacular. It gets hot though, so it's better to do it as early as possible in the morning. Even if you decide to stop at Scout's Lookout and not go up the chain-laden part of the trail, it still offers great views and a nice workout with all the switchbacks! You'll have to…

This is our favorite hike in Zion National Park. But be warned, this hike is very strenuous, but very worth it. ALL the other trails in Zion National Park are great as well, we love them all.
“Hard. For jaw-dropping views over Zion National Park, it’s hard to beat Observation Point. The entire hike is a beauty, but it is challenging. At 8 miles long and with 2300 feet of climbing, it is a steady climb to that final viewpoint. This is a classic Zion trail and well worth your time and effort, especially if you want views out over Angels Landing and the rest of Zion National Park. 8 Miles”
“Hard / Very Hard. For many hikers, the Narrows is a hike that makes the bucket list. This is the quintessential slot canyon hike. It’s challenging, it’s breathtaking in its beauty, and it makes for a very memorable experience. You can hike the Zion Narrows as a quick day hike, hiking from the bottom-up. You simply hike up the river as far as you want to go and turn around when you start to get tired. Or, hike the entire length of the Narrows from the top-down, either as a very long and challenging one-day hike or as a two day backpacking trip. Whatever you choose, it will be an adventure! The Narrows is closed during the spring months while the snow is melting, creating high flow rates in the river. A permit is necessary if you want to hike the Narrows top-down. 16 Miles”
“Beautiful place to hike and camp! It has several beautiful natural pools to swim in and small waterfalls. It's a kid friendly hike with a bit of shade here and there. In the spring the river is flowing and you often need to cross it so the shoes will most likey get soaked. In the summer the river dries and the pools become tepid but they are usually full of tadpoles so it's still a lot of fun for the kids..”
“Access the trail into Confluence Park right from our back yard! A great place to wander and explore, even with the kids. ”
