Zion national park is suffused with natural wonders that await you at every nook and corner as you explore the area. True to its name, this is a narrow and deep canyon hidden from the main canyon east of the Great White Throne. As you walk across this canyon trail, you will come across a number of ravines. Be aware that the hike can be bit strenuous as it constitutes an elevation gain over 1000 feet, several exposed sections, and plenty of rock scrambling. However, a walk through it will leave you with indelible memories for ever.

  • Rigorous and very rewarding hiking experience. Would highly recommend!

  • A very memorable hike, well worth the climb. I highly recommend going on the extra scramble toward the arch pictured.

  • Hidden Canyon was a really great and fun hike. It starts from the shuttle stop #7 - Weeping Rock and follows East Rim Trail as it switchbacks up the mountain for the first mile. Although it's steep, there are great views of Angels Landing and Zion Canyon so we made a lot of photo stops. After a mile, Hidden Canyon Trail splits right and after some more switchbacks, comes to a great viewpoint. The trail really gets fun from here. Hiking along steep drop-offs, there are chains affixed to the wall to hold on to. Its similar to Angels Landing, but drop offs only on one side. After this point, the maintained trail ends at the entrance to Hidden Canyon. To proceed further into the canyon, you'll need to climb and scramble over boulders. This part of the trail was especially fun. There was beautiful fall color in the canyon and about half-way through is a natural arch! At the end of the canyon is a sign, so you'll know you've gone as far as you can. Overall, one of my favorite hikes in Zion and the one I'd recommend if you only have a short time. It really has it all - gorgeous views, a narrow canyon, steep drop offs with chains, and canyoneering over boulders.

  • The hike up to hidden canyon is a little strenuous, but very doable. There are some tight spots with chains a couple steep drop offs, but very rewarding views. The slot canyon is really cool and not heavily trafficked.

  • Loved this hike. This hike was roughly around 3 miles total and had a elevation of 1000 feet. I would only suggest this hike to in shape individuals. It had many switch backs, but would be tough for anyone who was in shape. The first portion of this hike is just gravel/dirt switch backs. Stop and look around at each point because the views are spectacular. After you reach the top of the switchbacks, the trail takes you along the rock on a narrow path with only a metal chain to hold. This part was very narrow. It was a little scary but also thrilling.
