Note: As of September 2019, Hidden Canyon, and Observation Point (from Weeping Rock) are closed due to rockfall and storm damage. The Weeping Rock Trail and shuttle stop #7 are closed due to a large rockfall. These closures are indefinite at this time. 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.

If you’ve got an extra 30 min in Zion this is a must see! Interesting and cool sight, was pretty crowded however.

I didn’t get the chance to hike this and probably won’t get to. It appears that a huge wall on cable mountain had a rockslide around Aug 24th 2019. The trail near Shuttle #7 looks decimated...if you look you can see where the switchbacks were. This includes hidden canyon and observation point. Sad! From their website: Hidden Canyon, and Observation Point (from Weeping Rock) are closed due to rockfall and storm damage. The Weeping Rock Trail and shuttle stop #7 are closed due to a large rockfall. These closures are indefinite at this time.

This trail is so short and a nice way to cool off under the weeping rock, I'd definitely do it again. My kids 10, 8 and 5 did this fine with moderate whining since it was steep. If they realized how short it was, they probably would have whined less.

Super short trail, be ware of how steep it is. Come here for the views at the end, not the water.

This trail is short but it lacks a punch since you are walking up a steep grade most of the way. Once you reach the top, the view is just breathtaking. It was worth the hike up.

Tiny hike on paved path and mostly shade. No rain = no waterfall, but still a nice walk. And the cave at the top is a very cool temp. Actually a good hike for the afternoon.

Easy hike, definitely a steep grade (paved) on the way up but worth it! Short, sweet and to the point!

Short trail that is all uphill. The closest you’ll get to “weeping rocks” in Zion & it is cool to see.

Quick easy hike. Heard the water was tested and determined to be 1200 years old from being filtered through all the rocks. Very neat experience. Tons of people unfortunately even at 10am.

Fun little steep hike up to see the Weeping Rock. There are signs about the plant life up the path and make for nice little stops as you read.

Amazing view at the end. Very steep, very very short. Crowded in early June, so much so that you’re stuck walking at the pace of the 20 people in front of you. It’s a must see at the park though, and can take less than 15 minutes round trip. - heavily shaded - wildlife around - you will get wet, bring something to cover your camera/phone and don’t expect dry shoes - steep steep steep - stairs, paved, rails, benches, bridge - well maintained as is everything in Zion

Short but very steep. Make sure to always have water. Might seem like a short hike but the heat really gets you. Beautiful view from the weeping rock.

Short steep out and back trail. We went late in the day around 8:15pm so we didn’t see anyone else at the weeping wall. We ran into a couple of people like us trying to squeeze in the hike and not miss the last shuttle :). I could see how this trail would get really crowded during mid-day. I don’t like crowded hike, so would look to do this hike at more off times of the day.

Good hike/walk with kids. Also good after a long day on the trails. Very easy. Mostly shaded.
