Awesome hike. We did this originally because Angel's Landing was closed and we wanted to do a long hike .We did not regret it! In fact, I would recommend doing over Angel's Landing with you have the choice. You climb higher so the views are...More

The hike is reasonably strenuous and most of the trail is paved. The views along the way are pretty but the truly rewarding view comes at the end where you get a panoramic view of the valley.

We did this as our first hike of a week-long trip. Despite the elevation gain of about 2200 feet and duration (8 miles round trip) this turned out to be an excellent first hike. The trail is well maintained and remarkably mostly paved which makes...More

The hike is challenging but so doable and worth it. I don’t work out or hike regularly and I was able to finish the hike within 4.5 hours. The first mile is pretty difficult and steep with quite a few switchbacks. The second mile is...More

Hard to express the beauty of the walk to Observation Point. Although a challenging walk at times, the journey was worth it! Highly recommended!

You take the free shuttle bus to the Weeping Rock stop. Unless you particularly want to see the Weeping Rock, don't take the left trail. It's a dead end and you have a long hike in front of you. It is quite a steep climb...More

This was mine and my husband’s first hike in Zion and it did not disappoint. All along the trail, the views are gorgeous, leading up to the final observation point. It is definitely one of the most strenuous hikes we’ve ever done, with steep uphill...More

this like is great. you need water and walking sticks and it takes 2.5 hours up and 2 down. it winds around the canyon and goes deep into a slot canyon also. it is breathtaking and worth the energy it takes.

A nice challenge with great views. The trail is a maintained path that was once paved. It starts out steep for about 1 mile. Levels off into a shaded wooded area and a narrow canyon with a wash. Nice time to rest for the next...More

Awesome hike. Very steep, lots of switchbacks, a few level breaks, and lots of varied and beautiful views. Echo Canyon is worth the hike if you don't want to do the whole thing. We had no problem with the height (the trail is always wide...More
