Find the hidden Menu Falls in Zion

Tom’s Experience at Menu Falls:

Menu Falls is a little alcove with a waterfall in Zion National Park. It isn’t very well known and is usually seldom visited especially when the shuttles are running. It got its name because it was included on the cover of the original Zion Lodge menu.

Menu Falls Zion National Park

Menu Falls is located about .5 miles up Zion Canyon from the Big Bend shuttle stop. If you go when the shuttles aren’t running there is a small turnoff on each side of the road to park while you visit the falls. There isn’t much of a hike from the road.

Heading to Menu Falls

A short trail will take you to a small deck that allows you to view the falls. Menu Falls is pretty small and doesn’t have a ton of water but it is still a nice spot to visit. Dogs are not allowed on most trails in Zion National Park.

Menu Falls Trail Info: 

Menu Falls is about .5 miles after the Big Bend shuttle stop. If you go when the shuttles are running you will have to walk from there. If you are able to drive up canyon, you can drive right to the base of the deck.

Explore the dangerous Hidden Canyon in Zion

Tom’s Experience hiking Hidden Canyon:

Hidden Canyon is an adventurous hike inside of Zion National Park. The trail starts at the Weeping Rock Trailhead which is the 7th stop for the Zion Canyon Shuttle.

Zion's Hikes

The trail starts off very steep as it makes its way along the mostly-paved trail up the canyon. You will have great views of Angels Landing in the distance and Big Bend almost the entire hike until you enter the canyon.

Hidden Canyon Hike

You will reach a signed fork that points you towards Hidden Canyon. From here there are a few short switchbacks that lead to a nice view point. After the view point the trail gets narrow and there are chains in the rock similar to Angles Landing.

Hiking Hidden Canyon

You aren’t nearly as exposed as Angels Landing but if you are afraid of heights you may need to turn around here. The trail portion with chains is really neat as you walk along a ledge with steep drop-offs on one side.

Zions Hidden Canyon

Once you reach the entrance of Hidden Canyon you can explore the canyon up as far as you would like. Eventually you will reach a small arch on the right side of the canyon wall that is easy to miss if you aren’t looking for it.

Hidden Canyon Arch

Just turn around when you are ready or when you reach an obstacle you can’t get up. Dogs are not allowed on this trail. Total round trip mileage is about 3 miles total to the arch and back with a 1000 foot elevation gain.
