  • This is a long and grueling hike. It goes up and up and up, and just when you think you're to the top, it goes up and around the mountain some more. It is actually a gorgeous hike, and one of my favorites. You can see Angels landing from up here and barely make out the crazy people on the other rock. Be careful in the winter as a lot of the initial switchbacks are in the shade, and they stay icy.

  • It's an amazing place. To recovery energy. 100% recomend. Hard to get there but the view it's one of the things you don't see every day.

  • Great hike! East Mesa trail runs from the canyon floor to one of the highest points in Zio. The lower portion is a steep hike out of the canyon. Turn offs to Weeping Rock and Hidden Canyon. Echo Canyon is a cool short slot canyon then you are exposed all the way to the point (~2 miles) Some steep drop offs through switch backs up face to the rim. Rim path is fairly wide. Incredible view of the valley. Looks down on Angels Landing! We did it in about 5:30 in 103 degree temperature... almost turned around several times... but we made it! Went through about 5.5 liters of water b/w 3 of us.

  • Great hike through varied terrain with beautiful sights (giant rock faces, slot canyon, long vistas). Hike is long and some parts are steep, but last mile is relatively flat and ends with a breathtaking view down the canyon. Definitely recommend.

  • Wonderful hike! Moderately difficult at about 8mi round trip and 2100ft elevation gain/loss. Took us about 5h, and it was perfect weather in mid-April - about 65 degrees F although slightly overcast. Less people than other trails. The trail was well marked and easily navigable. We also felt it varied in view/terrain along the way. The view at the end was completely worth it.
