Description

This is a popular trail that leads to one of the most unique waterfalls you'll ever see, with water gushing out of a cave in the side of a cliff. This is the outlet of an underground stream through limestone that drains Navajo Lake. The waterfall is not large, and the viewing platform is too close to get a good picture, but it quite a sight. Along the way through the Pink Cliffs (the same geologic formation as Bryce Canyon and Cedar Breaks), you'll have constant views looking down on the peaks of Zion National Park.

The trail is relatively easy, but not flat. Very young children and anyone with mobility difficulties will not enjoy it.
