An easy hike with minimal elevation gain the trail follows the river bed through dramatic canyon scenery. The two abandoned cabins add to the enjoyment of the hike. Impressive views of Paria and Tucupit Points greet you as enter the canyon. Vibrant red, ocher and desert varnished walls narrow as you hike deeper into the canyon. The Double Arch Alcove is quite impressive. We were there in mid September and we met several other hikers on the trail but had the Alcove to ourselves.
Snow Canyon park has beautiful red rocks
I really enjoyed this hike during my stay at Zion. It is an easy, peaceful hike through an interesting area. As I hiked into the canyon, I was reminded of the old Westerns that I watched while growing up.
I would definitely recommend this trail to anyone that wants to get away from the crowds. November was fairly cold, so you might want to go earlier in the fall.
