Weeping Rock Trail, Zion National Park

4.4
#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.

  • Zion National Park compared to my other trail courses may not be not-so-great view, but has the advantage of being able to take a point and in a short time also shed a tear that makes this place special is the cliff to the trail of tears, is a wonderful place to just imagine breezes

  • Fun short walk. This landmark is called weeping rock because water splashed and cascade down the rock. Easy walk only about ten minutes.
  • Weeping Rock is just a short hike from shuttle stop #7 - Weeping Rock. From the back of the parking area, the short, but steep paved trail turns left and leads to the Weeping Rock in less than a quarter-mile. Water literally seeps out of the rock year round. Water high on the mountain slowly works its way through the more porous rocks. Eventually, it reaches impermeable rocks and seeps out, creating the Weeping Rock. We visited in fall when the water levels were very low. In high water, it looks really impressive. It's a short hike and worth a quick stop. We did it on the way to Hidden Canyon.
  • Weeping Rock is just beautiful in setting and formation. Take a moment of refreshment here.
  • Cool overhanging waterfall. You will get a little wet but it's kind of nice in the Zion heat. Hike is short but a little steep and slippery
  • Zion is massive and at times can feel overwhelming. While Angel's Landing may be the popular spot for tourists Weeping Rock is definitely worth the short trip. It's breath taking to see the water drip steadily off the facade as you take in the other sights and sounds of Zion.

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.
