We live relatively close to this trail head. It is not as grand as hiking in Zion but it still is a nice hike. The internet states that this is a 5 mile round trip hike. I beg to differ. My husband and I compared...More

Early in the morning we had the trail to ourselves. Gorgeous views and its shaded most of the way so that helped with the July heat. The Double Arches at the trail head is worth the trek. You cross the creek over 50 times. Bring...More

I wanted to get out and hike, but I also wanted to avoid the crowds of Zion since it was the weekend. This was the perfect trail. And if you go before 10:00 am, you'll see the sun as it is inching it's way over...More
