East Rim Trail to Observation Point is a 6.6 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Springdale, Utah that features a river and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until October.
This is a strenuous hike to the highest point in Zion National Park. You look down on Angels Landing and have a sweeping vista of the main canyon that makes up Zion. It is a stunning view.
From Shuttle Stop 7 to the Observation Point is longer and higher than one might think. The first 3 miles is a constant climb but the scenic views up Echo Canyon and the views from the Observation Point are well worth the climb. In mid-April the wild flowers were out and added even more beauty.
beautiful slot canyons along the way, very interesting landscapes and some fun river crossing. The rock color are very diverse and a great view at the top!
This is a special hike... have to do when coming to Zion!
Great trail with awesome views of the canyon at end. Steep - Not for the casual hiker. Go as early as you can in the morning to avoid the families who really should not be attempting this hike with their little ones.
Amazing views of Zion from the trail on the way up but best from the top. Very long trail with lots of vertical made it difficult enough for somewhat out of shape people to question their decision but it was worth it! (I am 58 and do work out but was sucking wind in this one)
This was an amazing trail but it's over 8 miles!
Went on this last week. It is SO beautiful! Its a longer and more challenging hike with the switchbacks and elevation, but worth it! If you want details about the trail and other Zion trails, check out my blog! https://goo.gl/ueGhWS
Beautiful trail, all different scenery on the way up and an incredible view when you get to the top as well. Challenging but a great time
The view at the top is absolutely incredible. Definitely worth it.
A ton of switchbacks and some really challenging elevation gain but so beautiful. Worth every moment
