As of September 2019 the Weeping Rock Trailhead has been closed due to a massive rockslide. According to one estimate, the slide resulted in enough rock debris to cover seven football fields six feet deep. The trailhead provided access to Weeping Rock, Hidden Canyon, Echo Canyon, and Observation Point. All are popular hiking trails. Unfortunately, the spot where this photo was taken no longer exists due to the rockslide. A very similar composition can be managed by coming from the East Rim Trail which is also very scenic but adds about 20 miles to the hike to get there and back as opposed to 1/2 mile prior to the rockslide. In this photo, Angel’s Landing is in the upper left part of the frame below the yellow/white Navajo sandstone rock. The Virgin River winds along the canyon floor.

When the very steep switchbacked trail has been rebuilt, take the Zion Shuttle to the Weeping Rock Trailhead. There’s a large parking lot and vault toilets there but when the trailhead is open, it is typically full by 9 AM.
