We talked with a friendly, engaged ranger at the visitor's center about our day's plan. He recommended the Hidden Canyon hike. It would be relatively shaded in the afternoon and have fewer people on the trail. He was spot on with both thoughts. The trail...More

We enjoyed this as much as Angels Landing and with way less people. It's exposed in places and you should know that if you need to pass people coming the opposite way on the narrow parts, you'll be pretty close to giving them a friendly...More

Wide, steady rise of a well maintained trail at the beginning that tired me, but grade lessened as we snaked around edge of the cliffs. Trail often narrow with chain handholds as you climb. Maintained trail ended and scrambling began at mouth of canyon. An...More

Hidden Canyon is our second most favourite hike in Zion NP (after Angels Landing). It also has chained sections with steep drop-offs, andante inside the canyon very minor canyoneering skills are required (all easy) to proceed. Not as busy as some other trails in Zion...More

This is a moderate hike, fairly rocky and steep, can be slippery with rocks. Be very careful and have fun. We did this hike between 11 and 1 PM and it became more crowded around noon. It would be great earlier in the day, but...More

After a morning of canyoneering, we asked our guide to suggest a good afternoon activity in the park that wasn't as crowded as the Emerald Pools. He suggested this one. This hike starts at the trailhead to the more ambitious Observation Point, but then splits...More
