Weeping Rock Trail, Zion National Park

4.0
#4 of 11 in Trails in Zion National Park
Nestled in the famous Zion National Park, Weeping Rock Trail offers a chance to experience the rugged nature that characterizes the area. You can drive to the trailhead and park in the on-site lot at the bottom for easy access. Traverse the 0.8 km (0.5 mi) round-trip pathway and make your way up to the nearby cliff faces and waterfalls that cascade down them. Look for the water that constantly "weeps" from the crevices, nourishing the surrounding plants and keeping the area extremely moist. Along your way you can take advantage of the sweeping views of the nearby canyon, mountains, and jagged cliffs. Although the trail is relatively short, it can be strenuous and rough, so wear proper hiking shoes. Start your trip to Zion National Park by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

    The trail to weeping rock is one of the shortest. It is maybe 20 minutes round trip mostly up a paved trail. The view from the trail is stunning, but everything in Zion is stunning.  more »

Where to stay in Zion National Park

If you want to stay inside Zion National Park, you can choose from three campgrounds or the Zion Lodge, which includes motel rooms, cabins, suites, and a restaurant. Two of the campgrounds sit near the south entrance, while the third lies more isolated about a one-hour drive from Zion Canyon along the Kolob Terrace Road. The gateway town of Springdale just south of the park has a wide range of accommodations. Choose from cozy inns and bed and breakfasts, rustic riverside lodges, and clean and simple motels. If everything's full here, try the nearby towns of Virgin and Hurricane.
