Zion National Park Accommodations, Hotels, Vacation Rentals & Lodging

This is a video showing the easier route to Zion National Park’s Observation Point. You need to pay for a private shuttle to the East Mesa Trail head.

It’s great to see a different part of the park with no people (we didn’t see a single person until they began arriving from the bottom-up hike).

Ambient sound only, no music, to give a feeling for how quite it is compared to the main canyon.

    Where can I find the primitive shuttle up to the trail head? And are there primitive shuttles that take you to other spots? Headed out there at the end of month and I’m trying to avoid the crowds

    Very helpful. I heard you mention bringing a lens filter with you. I think I will try to head out onto the trail around 4am with a headlamp and see if we cant get to Observation Point as the sun comes up, both to beat the heat and see it before the harsh noon time sun. Staying at a campground a few miles from the trail head so will be an in and out (rock slide recently prevents descending Weeping Rock Trail.. Thanks very much.

    I'm going to be out there in 3 weeks. Really looking forward to Observation Point and Angels Landing. It's so hard to imagine not seeing anyone until Observation Point in May, even a weekday! How much was your shuttle and from where if I might ask? Plus, how long did it take you to do this hike from the shuttle drop off to back at Weeping Rock shuttle top?
