This hike kicked our butts! It was hot and we began early. Next time we will be on this trail as the sun rises. The elevation change is challenging with over a 2,000 ft ascent of switchbacks that can make your muscles burn. Bring plenty...More

Hiked up mountainside to a great viewpoint of Zion Canyon. Trail is maintained with switchbacks through red Navajo sandstone and through Echo Canyon. The top is a great place to picnic.

Observation point was simply stunning, a lovely hike up to the peak and u could view into three canyons and look down at Angels Landings. It's a good hike but worth the effort , so glad we went there.

This stunning view is well worth the hike to reach it. The hike is uphill - so be prepared! And bring water!
