Zion National Park Accommodations, Hotels, Vacation Rentals & Lodging
Observation Point offers a tremendous view from high on the east canyon rim. From here, Zion National Park can be seen as a vast, dissected plateau. The view overlooks Angels Landing and the effort substantially more, so there tend to be many fewer people, making for a quieter experience.
The trail from Weeping Rock up through Echo Canyon follows an old Paiute Indian trail, which was expanded by pioneer John Winder in 1896 to handle pack horses and cattle. When Stephen S. Johnson christened Observation Point and Mt. Baldy in 1922, Zion visitors had to hike 18 miles to reach the viewpoint. The current Observation Point Trail was constructed in the 1930’s by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
