Zion Dayhike Suggestions? on 05/02/2013 09:22:47 MDT Print View

I'm going to be in Zion for about 2.5 days, and we had originally sort of penciled in the Narrows for one of the days, but it's looking like there's at least a decent chance that the flow rate in the river is going to be high enough for them to close off the trail (it's hit the 150 cfs threshold a few times this week). Does anybody have suggestions for a solid day hike as a replacement? Not really picky on what we're looking for- mostly just looking to see some cool scenery while we're there.

One other note (since it's obviously going to be the #1 suggestion)- we are going to be doing Angels Landing on one of the other days.

I would hike up from the Grotto, past Angels Landing, and to the top of the West Rim. Then back down again. Angels Landing is kind of anti-climatic compared to the views on the West Rim. It will be a grind up to the top (about 5 miles or so) but going down is much faster...; )
