Hikes in Zion NP

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be in Zion (staying in Springdale at Desert Pearl) for two nights in late June, arriving probably early afternoon on Saturday, and leaving early Sunday morning. I'm thinking we'll have time for one longish hike and maybe two short ones, and I'd like recommendations.

I think that the long hike will be Angel's Landing, but - assuming that we don't go past Scout's Lookout, is there another moderate to strenuous hike that would provide views as good, e.g. Observation Point?

For the shorter hikes I'm thinking River Walk, plus maybe a short push up the Narrows, but not too far, as my wife has foot problems, and has had surgery. Are the lower reaches of the Narrows easier to traverse than the farther?

What would you suggest for another shorter hike?
