All by ourselves at the point looking out over the valley - it even rivaled Yosemite. Amazing.

drove the 6 hours from Los Angeles, rushing to a Utah appointment, resting the night with random campers at Zion, then revisited these huge red rocks of my youth, hiked so many years ago when I came here with my family. and this was the first trail I revisited. and oh what a lovely lovely revisiting, indeed

We approached the switchbacks only to find that their had been a landslide across them. We poached the trail anyways, and found a large amount of sand across the trail. But with footsteps already in front of us we proceeded on. Ice covered the shadows in the canyon and on the rim. One of the best overall views of Zion.

Another beautiful hike with abundance of breath taking views into some parts of Zion not visible from the main canyon. Also through couple of some beautiful “mini” slot canyons. Even through we were there in high season we meet only about 5 people during this hike. Unbelievable, I guess no one wanted to deal with the little harsh elevation gain in this hot summer month. We started hiking early in the morning (about 7:30am) and definitely felt the advantage of the shaded switch backs right after the weeping rock trail. The area around this trail at the top is almost like somewhere else, but Zion, but than there is the view and everything is right back.

Hiked/jogged this after walking up Angels Landing earlier in the morning. Some great views along the way, especially into the Zion backcountry, which is simply gorgeous. Enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours.

Power hiked this trail on a Sunday afternoon. Very nice hike. Enjoyed the slot canyons along the way and the view from the top.

Great hike with everything a hiker would want along the way. Half way up the lower switchbacks is the trail to Hidden Canyon. A fantastic side trip most overlook.

Had a good time with a good friend and saw an excellent view from the top. The snow on the path near the top was a deep-orange/pink snow-cone-looking slush from mixing with the colored soil.

This is one of my favorite trails in Zion. I love the parts of the trail that are blasted out of the cliff. It's a longer hike than Angels Landing so it is less crowded. The view is outstanding looking straight down the canyon. The lower part of Hidden Canyon is a nice side trip.

A cool drizzly morning in the valley burned off and became warm and sunny on top. The views are magnificent.
