Extremely simple and easy hike. The hike is a paved, uphill walk to a viewpoint where you can marvel at the Court of the Patriarchs. It's good for kids who don't want to hike much.

It's good for kids as it's less than 3 minutes to the top and is paved. The view is nice but DAMN I wanted to get more info on the sheer cliffs behind me! Can't believe the info signs don't talk about them.

Just a short walk up a concrete pathway above the shuttle bus stop to a better viewing spot for the Court of the Patriarchs.

Great stop for a view of the peaks! Easy and very short trail. Well paved.

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.
