Description

One of the easiest hikes in Zion, and also one of the most rewarding! From this vantage you'll likely see Bridge Mountain, East Temple, the Route 9 switchbacks, and Pine Creek at the valley floor.

Short Walk: A quick half mile hike to a stunning viewpoint!

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.

Snowy, Icy - About a foot of snow from lava point to scout overlook. Perhaps snowshoes would be better for the rest of the season.
