Observation Point - Hidden Canyon

Zion National Park
Springdale, UT 84767

Observation Point shares the first part of the trail with the East Rim and Hidden Canyon Trails and branches off the Weeping Rock Trail at the trailhead. The path ascends rapidly as hikers climb the long switchbacks toward their destination. The huge Weeping Rock alcove can be seen during much of the hike and if you are lucky enough to be there after heavy rains, several waterfalls might be visible. The Hidden Canyon Trail intersects the Observation Point Trail and takes off on its own at about the 1.5 mile mark. Bypass this spur and continue north up the trail. Several more switchbacks lead even higher and soon the trail becomes fairly level as a spur on hikers right leads into Echo Canyon.
