Weeping Rock, Zion National Park

Weeping Rock Trail

This popular, paved trail is a must-do for all visitors to Zion National Park. After hiking up past wildflowers and lush vegetation, you come to the Weeping Wall, where groundwater that has seeped 2,000 feet through the Navajo sandstone from Echo Canyon emerges to create a dripping wall that represents one of Zion’s most famous landmarks. The “weeping” water in the alcove has formed picturesque hanging gardens and a small stream. Although this trail is paved, it is not considered wheelchair-accessible due to some steep sections.
