It is short and easy, but well worth it. It has an awesome view. Plus water is "weeping" off the side of the rock and keeps the area cool in the hot Utah weather.

I don't really understand why so many reviews say this hike is barely worth it. The hike itself is short and uneventful but that view! It's awesome. It almost feels like dinosaurs should be trotting around down below. Not to mention what a weird phenomena it is to see water seeping out of this huge rock. There were also some... More

Take the bus to weeping rock trail. The hike, while short, is pretty much straight up the mountain. You may need to take a couple breaks if you are not used to hiking. Once you are there, the view is pretty much of the rocks and plants, with a small, slightly wet viewing area. Shouldn't take you more than 5... More

This is a fairly short but steep trail leading to the Weeping Rock, where water drips out of the walls all year round. Both the trail and the Weeping Rock are not that extraordinary, and you will probably find yourself turning back within a few minutes of reaching the end.

This is a small little hike and the reward at the end isn't the greatest but if you have kids which I do and you don't want to go on a really long hike this is a great way to get out of the car and go see something cool that doesn't take a lot of effort.

This is an interesting hike for geology buffs. Water flowing down from the top of the mountain through the layers of sandstone rock hits a layer of slate, and then flows horizontally until it exits the side of the mountain in the form of a seep. It rains all of the time at Weeping Rock, and a number of different... More

..my granddaughters got off the shuttle at this stop and took a lot of photos. I had been here years ago and really liked it. From the pictures they took, it is gorgeous! They had a good time up there! They came within 5 feet of a deer, and took some great shots of her, too. Couldn't take the shuttle... More

It was a short but steep climb to the top. A great workout! A great view was our reward. Unfortunately the signs along the trail were in disrepair. Some were scratched and difficult to read, others were missing their sign faces entirely.

While visiting Zion National Park, we made sure to take the hike up to Weeping Rock. I had never heard of the location before so the entire experience was quite amazing. Once getting to the rock, I was so glad to finally cool down by the falling water. It's running at the perfect speed to just cool down and take... More

its a short uphill hike to this lovely spot, most of the trail is shaded, as is the actual rock area so good for the heat of the day
