This trail is short, just 1 mile round trip. It is, however, a bit challenging because it is uphill, on a narrow (sometimes extremely narrow) trail. There were many icy spots during late December when we visited. People recommended traction devices, but we managed just...More

If you want an overview look of the canyon but am too scared or not able to hike Angel's Landing, I'd recommend this hike!! I sure was not disappointed! This hike is usually listed as a fairly easy hike. I'd say, it's fairly easy but...More

I think you can (but check with nps website) as shuttle's only cover the area north of that turning. Be warned parking at the overlook trail is very limited so get there early.
