The trail ascends over 1000 feet to Hop Canyon. The canyon opens to a beautiful aspen- and spruce-filled bowl surrounded by rugged rock outcroppings and cliffs. Leaving Hidden Valley, you climb to the highest point along the trail. It’s a tough 3.5 miles to the trail junction with the Browns Point Trail. Nearing this junction, you reach the trail’s highest point, arriving at the wide, flat top of a ridge. A short 100-yard walk off the trail here yields great views of Zion National Park to the east, Quail Creek Reservoir to the southeast, and Washington and St. George to the southwest.
