This is a moderate one way trail in Zion National Park.

This trail goes by Wildcat Canyon Spring and Wildcat Spring.

About 1/2 of the trail is exposed to the sun and the rest is covered by trees. Most of the trail is wide and there are a few nice views, but don't do this trail just for the views, there are not that many. This is a good trail for the exercise or if you want to add a few miles to the west rim hike.

Getting Started

Park at the Trailhead, room for about 20 - 25 cars. There are two bathrooms there and the Trailhead is 50' from the bathroom. You don't need a truck to get to this one, any car (not a Corvette) would be fine.

Taking Children

This is a safe trail to bring kids on, but you should still keep an eye out.

    Nice hike but not many views, good hike to add a few miles to the west rim hike. The trail is 1/2 open to sun & 1/2 shaded with trees. There are a few other trails that fork off this one which are very cool, good views.
