Features Swimming · Waterfall

Family Friendly Swimming and an easy trail along a creek. Waterfall with deep waters during summer.

Description

From the Springdale/South Entrance of Zion National Park, follow the road for about 1.5 miles to the Canyon Junction. At the junction, take a right toward the Zion - Mt. Carmel Highway. The road will be straight for a moment, and then it will start to make a U-curve up the mountain. At the beginning of this U-curve, there is a dirt pullout with a small sign. This is the trail to the Pine Creek Waterfall.

The Pine Creek Waterfall is not traveled frequently. Few folks know about it. The trail to Pine Creek Waterfall is flat and when you reach the waterfall there is an area to go into the water. Beware, there are some deep waters here.

Beautiful unpromoted hidden gem in Zion. Description says flat hike, but we had to scale some pretty big rocks to get there. But it was DEFINITELY worth it.

Excellent little hike, that isn't marked at the road, and was less crowded. The views are amazing!

Water running slowly. Signs indicating to not swim because of algae. Still loved the hike with kids. — 10h 46m

Unremarkable, except we saw a family of deer!
