   Difficulty: Moderate

   Highest Elevation: 5,250 Feet Above Sea Level

   Dangers: High Cliffs

   Jurisdiction: Zion National Park   

   The Canyon Overlook Trailhead is located 5 miles east from the Zion Visitor Center down Highway 9. Just on the oeastern side of the first tunnel, you will see the Canyon Overlook Trailhead.


   The Canyon Overlook Trail is short; but it has views of The Great Arch, as well as views of the entire lower portion of Zion Canyon, including such prominent features as The East Temple, Bridge Mountain, The West Temple, The Towers of the Virgin, and The Streaked Wall. You will also see a variety of slickrock, overhangs and even hoodoos. If you bring some good binoculars or a spotting scope, there is a good chance that you will see Bighorn Sheep on the cliffs to the south.
