You will work a bit to get to the top, but when you do make it you will be glad you did. Spectacular views. A good place to sit and reflect. It overlooks the camps and visitors areas.

We had only 1 full day in Zion and did not plan to do the Narrows so decided on this trail. We hit the trail head around 7am. It was a nice early morning hike with nice views of the canyon.

Not everybody is young enough or physically equipped to challenge some of Zion National Park's high elevation and very strenuous (and dangerous) hiking trails. The Watchman Trail, like the Pa' rus Trail, is just within the sanctuary of the park and often overlooked by Zion...More

My wife and I did this moderate hike on our last day in the park. After doing the dramatic Angel's Landing hike the previous day, this felt like a cool down hike, but unexpectedly offered new views of the area around the park entrance. Since...More
