The Hidden Canyon
Duration: 3 hours (depending on where you stop)
Distance: 2.4 miles
Difficulty: Medium / High heights (But it’s doable if I did it!)
The Hidden Canyon was much more interesting than the Weeping Rock that we did just before. It takes 3 to 4 hours way and back but there is one thing to know: The canyon has no end. Basically, you could keep going on for as long as you want…
We walked up for quite a long time on a concret floor before reaching some clearly un natural stairs. I guess everywhere (or almost) in US national parks, the path are very well showed so people cannot get lost.
We walked on narrowed that were going around the cliffs of Zion Canyon, giving us a majestic view. More over, the end of the day was approaching, making the red of the rocks go even redder.
We walked like that up to a point where we had to go up a tree to continue the hike (yes it was either the tree or the big rock).
The tree or the rock?
Up that rock/tree, we discovered this other Canyon in front of us. The Hidden Canyon was here and well hidden. The cliffs where really high above our heads and we could walk further in the canyon.
We could have walked there for as long as we wanted but the most famous stopping point is a natural arch standing in the middle of the path.
Though it is quite not stable to go after the Arch. Alexis and Sebastien went but they had some troubles at some point. Sometimes it is really tricky to go further. You will have to climb on rocks to pass for example. It is a bit dangerous. More over, as there is no end, you will just get into more trouble to pass in order to go you don’t really know where.
You should also know that the hike is a bit strenuous. It goes up a lot at the beginning but just walk at your path and it will be ok. There is no rush to end a hike. Just enjoy the view!
You will have to walk on edges and sometimes there are not even ropes you can hold on too. The path is not very large but large enough. It didn’t stop me from being scared though I did it, so can you ahah.
