I'm headed up to Zion on Oct 12th and was looking for some intel. I plan on doing the touristy things like the Narrows, Angels Landing and the Emerald pools. Any must do hikes that are amazing and gets you away from the crowds a little?

If you have some canyoneering experience (or get a guide), then the Subway, is the best in all of Zion, it is a blast. :nod:

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Observation Point! You can look down on Angels Landing!

I'd have to second the Subway, I haven't personally done it, but it's on the bucket list
