Weeping Rock Trailhead

Weeping Rock is a hollowed-out ledge up in the sandstone cliffs where water gently cascades in droplets from the cliff walls above the ledge. The water originates from within the sandstone walls (hence the "weeping"). From here, you have wonderful views of the surrounding cliffs and valley floor below.

For those who are more adventurous and physically fit, the Weeping Rock Trailhead leads to other trails in the area, including the famous Observation Point Trail, Hidden Canyon, and the East Rim Trail to Cable Mountain, Deertrap Mountain, and the East Entrance Trailhead.

There are many weeping walls in Zion, but this one is easily accessible via a paved trail and culminates in a lookout area that was constructed under the alcove back in the early days of the park.
