Kayenta Trail Zion – Kayenta Trailhead
Last section is a route along a steep, narrow ridge to the summit. Flash floods are deadly. When the shuttle is not in operation and the parking is full at the Grotto, this trail is a lovely alternate way to reach the Grotto. There is no path along this section, but scrambling up the streamway is easy enough.
