Description

This easily accessible geologic oddity showcases some of the uniqueness Zion has on offer. Although Zion has a few "weeping" walls, this one is just a short jaunt from the Weeping Rock trailhead, which is accessible by the Zion Canyon Shuttle.

Short Walk: Either park or take the Shuttle to the Weeping Rock trailhead. From there, cross the hiker's bridge, and follow the Weeping Rock Trail to Weeping Rock.

Family Friendly: Kids will love being able to feel geology in action, especially after earning the short walk to the feature itself.

gem Favorite Sunrise from the Watchman Overlook. The sun lights up the peaks on the opposite side of the valley. Definitely worth getting up there in the morning for this great view.
