Best in early spring  Sucess!

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.

Freeway trails  Sucess!

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.

Good hike. Good view.  Sucess!

I took the first shuttle out and got to the top at sunrise. Beautiful view at the top and when exposed, but the canyons were amazing.
