Hidden Canyon, Zion National Park


There are many hikes originating in Zion Canyon. From the visitors center you hop on a shuttle bus and ride up stream getting off at the various trail heads. About half way up is the stop for Hidden Canyon, Weeping Rock and Observation Point.

Last April we visited the park and stayed a week, doing many hikes, Hidden Canyon being one of them.
The trail starts with switchbacks, steep switchbacks!

Then the trail clings to the cliff while it swings around to a defile where there is a set of stairs.

Now the trail again hangs on the cliff while it rounds another bend.

Now the trail plunges into the canyon, the narrow trail is full of amazing rock, fantastically colored and shaped.
