From cacti to cottonwood, this easy, 0.5-mile loop climbs nearly 100 feet to a hanging garden, a dripping rock, and a peek at Zion National Park's biodiversity.

One of Zion's most popular trails, this paved path to Weeping Rock is an easy uphill climb and a great opportunity to stretch shuttle- and car-weary legs between canyon dayhikes.

From the Weeping Rock shuttle stop, you'll begin this 30-minute hike by walking east through the parking lot and crossing a small footbridge to the trailhead kiosk. Turn left to begin the steady uphill climb and begin passing interpretive signs—more than a dozen of them—and plant species (elder, sagebrush, sumac, lichen, and even water-loving cottonwood and maidenhair fern).


The trail veers sharply uphill several times, rolling toward a small trailside waterfall and a set of dampened steps at its dripping terminus: Weeping Rock's 70-foot overhanging lip. The water trickling here has traveled over 1,000 years from the mesa-top above, percolating through the Navajo sandstone and being forced horizontally along a line of impermeable shale toward this eroded alcove. Take a few minutes to snap photos of the hanging gardens and cool off under the year-round shower before heading back to the trailhead.

Trailhead: Between March and November the trailhead is only accessible via shuttle. Catch the comfortable, fully accessible buses at the Visitor Center near the park's south entrance and disembark at Weeping Rock. In winter, drive 4.6 miles north of UT 9 on Zion Canyon Scenic Drive and turn right into the Weeping Rock trailhead parking area.
