Great morning hike, beautiful watching the sun rise over the canyon and fantastic, clear views at the top. Round trip took just under 2.5 hours.

It's got it all. Precipitous drops, beautiful slot canyons, sweeping panoramic views. Perfect weather today.

the trail via echo canyon and up the switch backs is a testament to park service and the folks who cut and maintain.

I vetoed Angel's Landing (THOUSAND FOOT DROP OFFS, GUYS), so this was my first Utah adventure. It hurt my poor, sea-level lungs. I dangled my feet off the ledge as I ate the M&Ms that my friend picked out of his trail mix. It was so perfect!

The view is spectacular from the top! The area in Echo canyon is scrum didily umptious! I am just going to put it out there, this hike is fantastic! However if you had to pick between this and Angels Landing, pick the Angel. If you fear heights, go for Observation.

I hiked this with my wife and two daughters (aged 9 and 7). We all really enjoyed it. The scenery was great the whole time. Echo Canyon was my favorite part. It's really a spectacular trail, especially how it is carved into the cliff face. One of my all time favorite hikes in Utah.

Date Climbed: Mar 28, 2012
Late March is a fantastic time to hike this route, first part is a decent amount of climbing but its definitely worth it! Round trip time was about 4 1/2 hours.

Date Climbed: Nov 19, 2010


As freeway trails go, Observation Point is by far my most favorite maintained trail in Zion National Park. Steep switchbacks, slot canyons, and stunning views! The first 1/3 of the hike is tucked up against the East side of the Main canyon and can be hiked later in the morning before the Summer Sun makes it's way over the canyon to heat things up.
