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.

This was a hugely memorable hike. I'd do it again in a flash. Highlights for us were: 1. It's 'pleasingly knackering', never to the point of wishing you hadn't done it - we're moderately fit (usually do our 10,000 steps a day) but not really...More

Don't get me wrong Zion National Park is beautiful, but also slightly terrifying. Described as a strenuous hike, going up Observation Point took 3 hours and it was 2 coming down. It is absolutely stunning, the views are fantastic and the chipmunks are fun, but...More

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!

This is one of the best views in the park. Though it's a long hike going up, be sure to be well equipped with comfortable shoes and stock up on water. Definitely worth it!

At the shuttle drop off...hike a bit and you can turn to go to weeping rock, or continue to observation point.

I might be slightly wrong about beaver and cedar, now that I look at the map, but from Twin Knolls there are a lot of signs.
