Hiking Trail

The Observation Point Via East Mesa trail takes the bold hiker from the East Mesa trailhead to a vista hundreds of feet higher than Angels Landing. This is one of the most spectacular spots along the East Rim of Zion Canyon. The trail follows an out and back route. It is not particularly steep, but because of the length most hikers consider this a moderate hike. Check out the photos from the community and get excited for the stunning views from the top.
