Observation Point


Description: A long hike that takes you from the Zion Canyon floor to the high overlook of Observation Point, climbing 2,200 feet.

Distance: 4 Miles One Way

Difficulty: Somewhat Strenuous

Highest Elevation: 6.507 Feet Above Sea Level

Dangers: High Cliffs

Jurisdiction: Zion National Park


   The Observation Point Trail begins at the Weeping Rock Trailhead at the 4.4 mile point on Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. The Observation Point trail is a fairly long, steep climb that takes you from the Zion Canyon floor all the way up to one of the best overlook points of Zion Canyon. Along the trail, you will traverse sandy washes, steep switchbacks, slot canyons with sheer rock walls on either side, and great views of Echo Canyon, Cathedral Mountain, Cable Mountain (the Cableworks themselves can even be seen if you have good binoculars and know where to look), Angel’s Landing, The Organ, Red Arch Mountain, The Great White Throne, and The Navajo Sandstone Formation. The Red Arch Mountain is one of the most inspiring views from Observation Point.
