Owner description: This one-mile hiking trail starts just outside the east entrance to the Zion-Mt Carmel Tunnel, and leads to a dramatic observation point that provides impressive views of Zion's rugged landscape.

Wow! What an amazing hike. The trail begins at the exit of the Mt Carmel tunnel if you are exiting from the park. It’s a shirt but moderate hike with amazing views and paths. Parents keep kids close because there are drop offs. Such a rewarding view at the end of the trail.

I was injured in Zion so couldn't do any of the harder hikes, but this is the best short hike you'll find in the park

This was marked a Moderate level hike and that was correct as there are a few sketchy areas. A few minutes from arriving at the overlook we encountered a woman who had just fallen and turned her ankle pretty badly. My husband ran back to our car to get walking sticks hoping she could make her way back. Group by group kept stopping and rotating groups of 4 ended up carrying her out. Three attempts to call Park Rangers yielded nothing and the woman’s husband ended up taking her to the hospital. Not the hike we had planned.

Great hike. Not too difficult. Great views all along, and especially at the end. Saw several mountain goats along the way, some fairly close to the trail.

You cannot go past this one, the view at the end of the 20 minute hike is absolutely breath taking. Despite the short distance, it's not all easy and there are a couple of challenging parts, but the view... Go for it.
