5. Zion Observation Point
The upper plateau of Observation Point stands 2,100-feet tall in elevation and offers 270° views of Zion Canyon. Along the way to the top hikers get a peek into the mysterious dark slots and white cliffs of Echo Canyon.
The trail to Zion Observation Point starts at Weeping Rock Trailhead and is an eight mile hike round trip. Unlike Angels Landing, the trail up to Observation Point gains elevation quickly and shortly into the hike you'll be able to see Angels Landing across the valley.
On the way up to Observation Point there are many notable trails that you can venture into including the Hidden Canyon and East Rim Trail. However, to get the full experience it's important to plan plenty of time for any detours.
