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.

It was neat to see the water coming down through the overhang, and there were some decent views of the rest of the park, but I would recommend spending more time elsewhere.

Cool to see but if short on time you can probably cut this one out. In winter watch for black ice while walking up trail

We went in early October and Angel’s Landing was closed for maintenance so we did some last minute random hikes. This was a short, easy hike and had a nice view. Would definitely recommend if that’s what you are looking for.

Not that much impressive.

Nice, quick trail. The coolest part of this was the view to the rest of the park.

Good starting hike for the morning with the incline. There wasn't much water flow when I went there, probably about the strength of a shower.

Short, moderate difficulty trail with a steep climb. At the top there is a landing with a nice view under an overhang with a gentle waterfall.

The water falling is cool to see. Good short hike for the kids. We didn't have to pay the$30 entrance fee, but I don't think it would have been worth the $30 plus fighting for parking, especially if you live in Utah. Just go to Jones Hole near Vernal and you can see the same great cliffs without all the people. Trail is paved.

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.
