The Watchman


   Description: A short hike that takes you into the small hills that lie below The Watchman and Bridge Mountain.

Distance: 3 Miles Round Trip

Difficulty: Easy

Highest Elevation: 4,350 Feet Above Sea Level

Jurisdiction: Zion National Park


   The Trailhead for The Watchman is located between the Zion National Park Visitor Center and the South Campground. This easy little hike is not one of the most famous viewpoints, nor does it take you high atop a plateau. However, like any trail in Zion, it does offer some great scenery and is often at least a little less crowded than the more popular trails like Angel’s Landing.

   Surrounded by sagebrush, juniper and pinyon pine, The Watchman Trail offers views of The Watchman, Bridge Mountain, The Towers of the Virgin, The Virgin River, and the town of Springdale towards the south, as well as many unnamed smaller cliffs ao abundant in Zion.
