For the most stunning views of Zion National Park, take the East Rim Trail to Observation Point. The trail is 8 miles long, strenuous, about 4 hours, with an elevation 2148 feet. It has steep drop offs, but no technical climbing is involved.

Grab breakfast at Zion Lodge and start the hike early in the morning for best results.
