Zion Observation Point, Zion National Park Reviews

  • Wonderful hike! Moderately difficult at about 8mi round trip and 2100ft elevation gain/loss. Took us about 5h, and it was perfect weather in mid-April - about 65 degrees F although slightly overcast. Less people than other trails. The trail was well marked and easily navigable. We also felt it varied in view/terrain along the way. The view at the end was completely worth it.

  • Great hike through varied terrain with beautiful sights (giant rock faces, slot canyon, long vistas). Hike is long and some parts are steep, but last mile is relatively flat and ends with a breathtaking view down the canyon. Definitely recommend.

  • The hike up is strenuous and tiring to say the least, make sure you take plenty of water and a snack for the top but OH MY are the views worth it. Literally INCREDIBLE! Even on the way up you are graced with amazing views of canyons and mountains. 1000% recommend to anyone. We are not used to hiking but if you are healthyish and able bodied take your time and you will make it. So worth the burning legs and lungs.

  • Amazing hike. Worth the climb and echo canyon along the way was awesome. My 9 yr old loved it.

  • Unbelievable views. A very difficult hike. Not for the faint of heart. But if you are up for the challenge, these are the views you are looking for.
