This overlook provides a great view of southern Zion Canyon if you're willing to climb the 2200 feet of elevation to get there.

This trail starts with a climb on good paths that is about 3,5 mile long, almost just uphill. Passing some nice canyons on the way up. Last mile is very easy. The final destination is probably one of the best views from Zion National Park....More

Outstanding hike. Four miles each way with about 75% of the ascent up switchbacks. There is some exposure but the trail is adequately wide. The trip, part way up, to Echo Canyon alone is worth the effort if you don't want to do the complete...More

So like everyone else, we wanted to hike to Angel's Landing, but we heard about the crowds and we saw the first two shuttles off the morning already full of hikers heading there and decided to go to Observation Point instead. We also had only...More

The hike did not take long and I found it moderately challenging, about 2 hours. Most of the way up is fairly scenic, Once above the view is amazing. You could spend hours there if you knew you didn't have to go back down. Make...More

Not a super easy climb but after about 2 hours you'll reap the rewards! Cooler ascent in the morning and be prepared for warm temps on the way back down. Can't say enough about taking some cool water.

This hike had the best views and is a must do! We took the rear trail from near the backside of the zion ponderosa ranch. Its a dirt road drive and we managed to make it in a Prius so I'm pretty sure any car...More

Absolutely fantastic views, but believe the hiking guides- it is very strenuous! I am a 58 year old woman with some physical limitations. I thought that since I have hiked Angel's Landing twice (different years) that I could do this hike. Big mistake!. I managed...More

This hike has a great reward at the end - magnificent views of Zion. It is not as crowded as Angel's Landing. We did it on a very hot day in June. Drank 3 liters of water. It was a challenging hike.

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.
