There are numerous overlooks in the park, so many could be called “Observation Point!” All of them offer amazing views and opportunities for wonderful pictures. We really tried to see as many as we could, and honestly it was impossible to call any one alone...More

It may be tough to find a parking place, but even if you have to hike up the road 1/2 mile to get to the trailhead, it's still worth the hike. It has cliffs, cut out steps, caves, steel bridges, and great views.

We did this hike with a family of 5. It was pretty long and freezing when we started, but worth it for the views. I would recommend walking everyday in preparation for this hike because it is pretty tiring. Only thing disappointing was that the...More

I’m an average hiker, hate up hills but know the top is amazing. This is an 8 mile round trip, took us about 2.5 hours up and 1 hr 40 down. I almost gave up just as it got flat at top. The last 20...More

My husband and I are couch potatoes who don't exercise much. We love nature and have done shorter hikes in the past. It was our first trip to Zion and we weren't really prepared for a hike this strenuous. We started at around 9.30 in...More

I did Angel's landing, Canyon overlook, and Narrows in Zion and this was my favourite trail. Diverse, beautiful, spectacular view!
