Added by Glen Jarrett

Observation Point offers some of the best views of Zion National Park!

Starting at the Weeping Rock Trailhead, one of the stops along the shuttle that goes through Zion, the hike to Observation Point is about 8 mile round trip and a fairly strenuous hike --- that being said, it offers great views of Zion and is less crowded than the popular Angel's Landing hike nearby (and also less fear-inducing). Along it's route, the trail weaves through dry stream beds and canyons.
