Long and Easy  Sucess!

Did this with my wife and absolutely loved it. Got to see some bighorn sheep through some binoculars, as well. Rained a bit at the top but didn't last long. Long but easy hike.

Best Views of Zion Canyon  Sucess!

Beautiful hike with amazing vistas. Saw a couple desert bighorns on a steep precipice close to the trail switchbacks. Out-of-staters were blown away.

Zion in Summer  Sucess!

A great hike, but if climbing in summer, better to start in the mornings or late afternoon as the heat starts to die down.

Zion never fails  Sucess!

Nice easy morning hike  Sucess!

Great morning hike, beautiful watching the sun rise over the canyon and fantastic, clear views at the top. Round trip took just under 2.5 hours.

Near perfect hike  Sucess!

It's got it all. Precipitous drops, beautiful slot canyons, sweeping panoramic views. Perfect weather today.

trail is way cool  Sucess!

the trail via echo canyon and up the switch backs is a testament to park service and the folks who cut and maintain.

Observation Point  Sucess!

Did this trail late in the day to try and get shots at Golden Hour. Great hike. Views of Zion Canyon are unreal. Worth it. Enjoy the slot canyons about halfway up.

Not very Angelic.  Sucess!

I vetoed Angel's Landing (THOUSAND FOOT DROP OFFS, GUYS), so this was my first Utah adventure. It hurt my poor, sea-level lungs. I dangled my feet off the ledge as I ate the M&Ms that my friend picked out of his trail mix. It was so perfect!

I can see clearly now!  Sucess!

The view is spectacular from the top! The area in Echo canyon is scrum didily umptious! I am just going to put it out there, this hike is fantastic! However if you had to pick between this and Angels Landing, pick the Angel. If you fear heights, go for Observation.

Observation Point  Sucess!

I hiked this with my wife and two daughters (aged 9 and 7). We all really enjoyed it. The scenery was great the whole time. Echo Canyon was my favorite part. It's really a spectacular trail, especially how it is carved into the cliff face. One of my all time favorite hikes in Utah.
