Nice stop along the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive - between Canyon Junction and Zion Lodge. Very short sloped paved trail to a nice viewpoint of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob Peaks, Mount Moroni and The Sentinel. Probably best in mid-morning when the sun is on the surrounding peaks. If riding the shuttle, hop off, check it out and hop back on the next shuttle. We did this on our way to Angel's Landing.

Almost not sure if you can even call this a trail. Its a short paved path up to a really great view though.

Easy walk up a paved path, but it leads to a real pretty view.

After checking in, I realized this isn't a hike. It's just a short sidewalk up to a viewpoint. The view is great, but I get annoyed when people add tiny little sidewalks to Alltrails as if they're hiking spots. I guess I should have read the description first...

The first stop of the bus after the road splits. A short, paved path climbs to a very nice viewpoint.

Steep, very short, and paved. This trail winds up to a small area with great views of the peaks across the Zion valley.
