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 oasis awaits you with a natural arch and walls covered in ferns. Round trip took... 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 NP, and well worth a look!

We try this trail to get a taste of chained climbing before heading for angel's landing, it has a lot of switchbacks at the beginning part but the rest is easy. There are animals(may be frogs/birds) shouting loudly at the chained trail portion which is a little bit horrid. We cannot make to the canyon because the shuttle bus ends... More

We returned to this trail to do the hidden canyon. It did not take long at all to do. We were the first ones on the chained trail portion and were able to go in and back before meeting other hikers. It was so quiet and peaceful. It was quite safe as long as you are careful. We were very... 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 it is still not as crowded as some of the other trails. Great views, lots... 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 off to the right. It is fairly strenuous going up, with switchbacks, so just take... More

Our family (2 adults in their 40's and a 15 and 18 year old) did this hike on a Monday morning in April. We arrived around 9:00. It was chilly but we warmed up with all the uphill climbing. The first section was all uphill. Then it split and the hikers for Observation Point went left and Hidden Canyon hikers... More

We were planning on hiking the Emerald Pools with our kids (ages 4-8 years old), but then got advice that the pools were extremely busy and crowded. A travel guide recommended this hike, and it was gorgeous. We had great views of the main canyon. We stopped at the chains and exposed ledge because of the kids and we did... More

This was a great hike with totally beautiful views all around. It's dicey in some places so you have to be careful not to roll an ankle or hurt your knee. But it is worth the risk for sure. Great for a family just make sure to watch the little ones. But a definite good time.

It was the perfect day to hike and therefore Zion was very crowded! We waited over an hour to get on the shuttle and ended up here mid afternoon. After passing on the chain section of angels landing I thought maybe the chain section of this hike would be doable. The hike up is tough but so gorgeous! Once we... More
