This set of sandstone cliffs constitute one of the most mesmerizing sights in Zion National Park. Named individually after the Biblical figures (from Old Testament) of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the court of patriarchs was named by a Methodist minister who actually gave names to many other parts in Zion during his visit in 1916. Mount Moroni stands in front of Jacob, and is named after the Book of Mormon prophet who appeared to Joseph Smith. Due to the magnanimity of the cliffs, this is one of the most photographed sites in Zion National Park, worthy to be captured.

  • Court of the Patriarchs is a popular landmark of towering peaks which can be seen from the canyon floor in Zion National Park. There is a convenient Zion Shuttle Stop (4) and short 2-3 minute ascending trail that leads to a viewpoint from which you will see fine views of the three major peaks and sandstone cliffs. The peaks were interestingly named the biblical figures Moses, Isaac and Jacob. The view of the Court of the Patriarchs is quite beautiful against the blue skies. Considering the short walk to the viewpoint, it is well worth exiting the Zion Shuttle for a few minutes to take a few pictures and to enjoy the scenery here before proceeding further into Zion. Shuttles pass by to pick-up and drop off passengers every few minutes.

  • Lovely place. Don't just look from the viewpoint, take a walk near the river to get better view and different perspective

  • The size of these projections of the canyon walls get lost in the sheer number of them. Some range from 2000 to 3000 feet high. The valley is only a half mile across; so you find yourself looking up a lot.
