Got a Vehicle? If you yearn to gaze down from Observation Point, but feel intimidated by the the 4-mile, 2150-foot climb to reach it from Weeping Rock trailhead, East Mesa trail may solve your problem - so long as you have wheels. An hour's drive from Springdale/Zion Canyon to the heights of the East Side converts an outstanding workout into a casual stroll to the same stunning overlook. Getting to the trailhead, however, requires a high clearance (or rental) vehicle, due to the rutted road. Once you do attain the trailhead, a wide, flat trail leads through a beautiful, sparse forest to Observation Point.
