Quaint little water feature in the park, but not worth the stop off of the shuttle unless you are planning to hike the East Rim trail/Hidden Canyon/Observation Point. Better water features can be found at the Emerald Pools Complex unless you are visiting at a very hot and dry part of the year.

The trail was very short and easy, some steep/slippery areas you gotta watch out for. One of my favorite spots in the world. The weeping rock shaded us from the hot sun and provided a rich, panoramic view of one of Zions valleys. Hearing the water trickle was calming to hear.

Worth a look to see weeping rock, it's an easy trail, only 10 minutes walk or so from the parking area, take the camera, views of the overlooking rocks worth a picture or two as well as the water coming from weeping rock itself.

This is the easiest trail at Zion. It is paved with only slight inclines and can be hiked very easily by almost anyone. It is wonderful to reach the waterfall and stand under it and let the mist cool you before the walk back down

It is a short but steep hike to the top where the weeping rocks are. Pretty easy even for someone who is out of shape. The shuttle drops you off right there, so why not? It was something different to see. Nothing spectacular though as it is only water dripping down rocks. But, like I said, why not?

I'm certain that the amount of weep depends on the time of year but in January its a little less than spectacular. Fairly easy walk with s pretty steep incline.

Fun, end of day hike that takes 20-30 minutes. Steep hike, but the "weeping" rock is neat to see and you have a nice view of the main canyon once there. Even in the dry winter, the rocks were still dripping water.

This was our first visit to Zion National park. We spent 2 days here. Get here early to get parking!!! Can be super busy. We visited on a very cold day as the weeping wall was frozen. Take the path to the left to the week wall. The path to the right does not connect.

Was winter time when I did this hike so it was a little slippery and the end part of the trail was closed due to falling ice. Still very impressive, especially with all massive icicles hanging (and crashing from the side of the mountain). The spring time presumably has a small cascading waterfall over the rocks, which would also be... More

This is probably the shortest trail in the park. The path was a bit icy from last night snowfall and we were lucky to capture some icicles formed by dripping water off teh rcks. As the sun started to rise, the icicles fell off. The weeping rock itself was beautiful to look from the outside as well as from inside-out.
