Deertrap Mountain is another fairly remote viewpoint that requires many miles of hiking, but its beauty is well worth the effort for a strong hiker. You can see everything from this mountain: the majestic White Cliffs surrounding the main canyon, Angels Landing and the Zion Lodge far below, and even Springdale in the distance to the south. Not too many people venture up here because it is just a little too strenuous for your average day hike, so it is a great spot for solitude.

So the actual trail does not reflect what shows up on GPS. So, don't trust your phone, apps, or GPS. Trust the trail and trail signs and you'll be fine. Great view at the end, but the hike itself is not the most scenic.
