Weeping rock trail is exactly what it refers to. You take a short easy hike to see why the canyon is green. The water seeps through the rock and keeps running all year long.

Weeping Rock Trail in Zion National Park is well worth the short uphill hike for the great views and unique raining grotto.

This is a great hike on a hot afternoon. It is not long and is mostly in the shade. The weeping rock makes a nice, cool spot to relax.

This is a paved trail, but not too strenuous and views and nature markings along way very helpful. Sneakers are suitable for this trail, but good boots for rougher trails give added insurance to avoid injury.

It is a bit steep, so just take your time if you are not in shape. It is a very cooling trail to do on a hot summer afternoon. It is a beautiful sight to look up the cliff as the water is trailing down and the sunlight reflects off the drops.

This is probably the quickest hike to see the water leaking through the rock formations and the plants that grow there. Standing under the overhang is a nice view. But the trail is short, so take the one at the very end of the canyon along the Virgin River to see more weeping rocks and the tiny snails.

Highly recommend this trail for those who don't have much time here. This one takes you up a bunch of steps and directly to an extraordinary view of Zion's lush valley. We saw a deer along the way, too, which shows you how much less crowded and more peaceful this spot is. You can rest underneath a long rocky overhang... More

Let me start off by saying that the views in Zion National Park are absolutely AMAZING. We are surrounded just about everywhere with 360 views of stunning sandstone spires and cliffs with the pristine Virgin river flowing parallel to much of the roadway.. The views from the bottom of this hike were equally amazing. Unfortunately, the short and strenuous hike... More

This was one of my favorite spots in Zion National Park. The "hike" is so short and quick, so little kids can do it. It's so lush and green, and it's gorgeous there! We actually watched a deer jump onto the trail in between me and my husband while walking up. I love that the wildlife is so abundant, and... More

The Weeping Rock Trail is only .5 miles round trip and the view from up there is amazing! If you are site seeing via shuttle bus, I highly record stepping off for a thirty minute maximum detour to cool off and snap some scenic photos. I easily climbed this after a strenuous five hours hiking The Narrows.
