This trail offers one of the best viewpoints in Zion National Park. There is plenty of variety including dizzying drop offs and incredible scenery looking down into Zion Canyon. Your journey starts out winding your way up the steep mountainside and briefly leveling off through Echo Canyon. After that, the walls drop sharply providing spectacular views and your destination.
This path is steep, making it one of the most strenuous of the classic hikes in the park.
Make sure your shoes are well broken in before attempting this hike. Most of the trail is a well-maintained hard surface with little shade when the sun is high in the sky. There are drop-offs that give me nightmares to this day. As if I need to say it…stay away from the edge of the trail and cliff edges!
