A short Zion classic that pumps air into your lungs and rewards with gorgeous views.

Zion National Park, UT 84767
NileGuide Expert tip:
Trail is exposed to full sun. Can be brutally hot midday summer; try for early morning, late evening, or off-season.
Leading to a mesa above the Visitor Center, this overview trail does not disappoint. It does not take you to the top of the Watchman, but you have a great view of that Zion landmark. Try it in the winter for a memorable experience. Not as many people sample this trail as some other Zion classics, which is a shame because it's gorgeous. On the plus side, though, this trail can be somewhat less crowded.
