I started my hike from the Grotto parking lot at roughly 9am. I was surprised that only two of us got off the bus for this hike. I was expecting more people but I guess I got lucky with it being a cold Monday morning. The beginning portion of the hike takes you along the Virgin River as you slowly work your way up in elevation. After a half mile or so you step onto pavement and follow the switchbacks up. After a few minutes the trail levels off and you head into Refrigerator Canyon. My pace picked up as the trail is fairly level and still paved. Before long I found myself at the base of Walters Wiggles. I cruised up this section in no time and arrived at Scouts Lookout.

The pavement finally ends at Scouts Lookout and you can see the fun part of the hike. The railing section looks very intimidating! I started making my way and was surprised at how easy the going is. I found myself having a blast working my way up. It was a lot easier than I anticipated. Before long I found myself at the very top and worked my way over to the end. I was kind of disappointed at the challenge. I expected more. Don't get me wrong, this is a wonderful hike and the top section felt like a playground. I took my pics and then turned around and started making my way down. As I worked my way down, there were more and more people on their way up. I was glad I started early. After a little effort I was back at Scouts Lookout and back on pavement. The rest of the hike was uneventful and I was back at the bus in no time.
