Guided nature trail, desert springs, swamp, outstanding photo op, fall color You could do this trail fast. Half an hour is all it takes to go up to the overhanging cliff face and back. If you're a grinder, you can skip the signs and do it even faster. But if you're that kind of person, what is the point of coming here? Why not just run around the track back at home? Weeping Rock offers a spectacular view down-canyon, especially of Zion's signature landmark The Great White Throne. Water that has filtered for 1200 years seeps out of the Navajo Sandstone where it meets the Kayenta Shale and forms a steady rain in front of an overhang. Enroute you pass through a sloping swamp, a distinctive feature of Zion, where maidenhair fern and horsetails grow. Bird lovers will enjoy the swallows and when the maples begin to turn in late October, there is yet another spectacle not to be missed. The passage of the hours will change the hues before your very eyes.

Very short hike (or really a walk) up a paved surface to a very pretty area at the top. Plants are labeled along the trail and the water dripping off the rocks at the top makes for some pretty pics. Not really a hike, but definitely worth seeing.

Stunning! This trail took just a few minutes to reach the top and you are rewarded with lush plant life and rocks dripping from above. In the spring, this looked like fern gully. While it's not a long or intense hike, you should do it because the nature that awaits at the end is just spectacular.

Easy short trail with decent view of trickling water at the end. Strollers can be taken on the trail too

I wouldn't consider this a hike in the least, but a beautiful walk on a paved path to take in Zion's beauty. But if you're visiting Zion, I still think it's a must!

Super easy. Nice drippings at end of walk. Beautiful but don't expect jaw dropping.
