Description

While most folks will be ascending the steep ledges to Angel's Landing, you can view them from across the valley at Observation Point. Without a doubt, this is one of the best viewpoints in Zion. From this vista, you'll have clear views of Angel's Landing to the southwest while the Great White Throne will be in sight due south.

Half-Day Hike: Follow the Observation Point hike from the Weeping Rock TH.

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.
