Description

While most folks will be ascending the steep ledges to Angel's Landing, you can view them from across the valley at Observation Point. Without a doubt, this is one of the best viewpoints in Zion. From this vista, you'll have clear views of Angel's Landing to the southwest while the Great White Throne will be in sight due south.

Half-Day Hike: Follow the Observation Point hike from the Weeping Rock TH.

Fallen Trees - Only one tree blocking the path, but it’s easy to duck under. Cabin springs and several seeps are running.

Mostly Dry - Stream isn't very full. Makes keeping feet dry until the end pretty easy. Leaves are changing and absolutely incredible!
