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.

Short trail. Shade, lush vegetation, flat, and well trafficked. Seeing a feeling thousand-year old, shale-filtered water is pretty cool. It's not recommended to drink it! The view down the canyon is also not one to be missed. Great hike for people of all ages.

Maybe a 10 minute walk to the wall.

Short, sweet, and refreshing! Went in June, took less than 10 minutes to get to the rock. Beautiful view, great way to end your day in Zion.

The hike was incredibly easy, and it didn't take long to complete. At Weeping Rock, you'll find views of Zion Canyon and a overhang with water dripping from it.

Super easy .25 up (.5 total). Beautiful views of Zion canyon and a wonderful geologic phenomena.

Hike itself isn't necessarily anything special, but the destination, Weeping Rock, is a pretty fascinating, unique location.
