Observation Point, Zion National Park

Hiked to Observation Point yesterday with Pops. There are two routes, one climbing up from the bottom of the canyon (8 miles r/t, climbing 2,000 feet) and one that crosses the top of the ridge from the back side of the park (6 miles r/t, climbing ~50 feet). For the sake of time, we did the latter, though with the extra driving time (dirt road) to the trail head, we probably should have done the canyon ascent. In any case, it was an easy but rewarding stroll through the park. Highly recommend this one, whichever route suits you.
