Observation Point looks down on Angels Landing and down the Zion Canyon. The view is magnificent (and the chipmunks exceptionally aggressive). The trail moves through a very interesting mix of settings: slot canyon, rocky outcrops, sandy benches with blooming cactuses and wildflowers, and switchbacks with steep drop offs. It is a long hike up with considerable vertical gain. Mr friend and I, however, hiked in from the National Park boundary on the East Mesa Trail by booking a shuttle through Red Rocks Shuttle. That three-mile hike is fairly flat, through scrub forest and on sandy trails. On the walk down the Observation Point Trail to the Grotto, we were able to enjoy the views, rocks, and flora. The first switch backs down do have steep drop offs that may have you hugging the rock walls.
