The basics

A popular, family-friendly hike—and stop #7 on Zion’s shuttle line—Weeping Rock Trail takes trekkers up to the underside of a canyon wall beneath an overhang of rugged sandstone that refuses to erode. As a result, gravity pulls water through the rock’s face, forming a gently dripping wall (at least, usually) that turns green with vegetation. Across the way, visitors will get a well-framed view of the Great White Throne.

For most, the trek takes about 10–15 minutes. Though it’s not the only “weeping rock” in the park, it is the most accessible—and the easiest to stand under.

How to get there

In the warmer months, when personal vehicles aren’t allowed on Zion Canyon Drive, you must take the park shuttle—it’s stop #7. (In winter, find it right on the main drag through the park.) Once parked or dropped off, cross the bridge and head to your left onto a paved trail marked “Weeping Rock.”

When to get there

Weeping Rock Trail is a very popular hike in Zion National Park. If you want to avoid the crowds, come closer to sunrise or sunset—especially if you’re visiting in summer when the park sees well over half a million visitors a month. That’ll help you avoid the crowded shuttle bus ride, too.

A dripping oasis

You can access the stream Weeping Rock drips into at the start of the trail, near the hiker’s bridge—it flows into the Virgin River. This is a popular spot for kids and anyone who wants to take a break from the summer heat with a toe dip in the cool water.
