Easy, well-marked trail

Hanging Garden is an easy hike perfect for the whole family. You’ll enjoy views of Lake Powell in the distance as you hike along this well-marked trail over smooth, red sandstone. Even in the winter, the garden was green and lovely.


Trail Description

A lot of care has been put into making this trail a nice hike for visitors of all ages and abilities. No navigation aids are required, although I think some kind of navigation is always smart.

Hanging Gardens Trail

From the parking lot, you’ll simply follow the path that is lined with smaller river rocks the entire way.

In case the rocks aren’t enough to keep you on trail, there’s a nice big sign to help you out. Check out those views of Lake Powell in the distance!

Hard to get lost on this trail

The trail eventually crosses red sandstone, and you’ll see the alcove where the hanging gardens are located above you to the right. Continue past it to where you can hike up to the next level and then walk back toward the hanging gardens.

The hanging garden is underneath a large overhang. Turn on that wide angle lens and try to “Richard” that photo! (Okay, it’s an inside joke about our photographer friend.)

Just on the other side of the alcove is a good place for a nice view. A sign there reminds you it’s the end of the Hanging Garden Trail, just in case you didn’t know.
