The trail is only 1 mile round trip and is mostly level after the initial climb up off of the road.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: As soon as you exit the Zion-Mount Carmel Tunnel the trailhead is to your right. It is small and has an outhouse. There is additional parking further up the road. The trail starts across the street from the parking lot next to the ranger station.
