Zion National Park – Canyon Overlook Trail

The Canyon Overlook trail in Zion National Park gives you an amazing view of Zion Canyon. You will find this trail on the East side of the Park, not far from the Zion-Mt Carmel Tunnel. Be aware that there is not a lot of parking near this trailhead. Be kind and do not block another car in!

The trail is one-mile roundtrip to the viewpoint and is an easy family-friendly hike. There are a few stairs and some drop-offs, but there are railings to help you along your way.

After the overlook, you can venture further on to the East Temple Saddle and Pine Creek, if you like. We ran out of time to explore these areas but look forward to coming back in the future. Please do not approach wildlife that you come across. Rather, view the animals through the zoom lens of your camera. This goes not only for the sheep, but for any wildlife you encounter in the Park.
