  • There are a couple really tricky things about this popular spot in Zion National Park: (1) I just assumed "Court of the Patriarchs" referred to the three sandstone monoliths towering above Zion...

  • I am sure glad we had our horses to take us by the Court- the sandy trails did not look fun to hike!

  • Easy hike on Sandy Bench Trail, great views especially if you head south.
  • We walked from the gate, abt 2 miles plus whatever distance from the car. Lots of bikes and walking people. Fairly good space to stay clear from vehicles, mostly shuttles. Excellent views, cooled off in the river although quick in and out since the water is reported to have cyanobacteria and their toxins. The connection to sand beach trail was a little further up., that was so convenient. No port-a-potties that we could see.
