Weeping Rock | Zion National Park


Weeping Rock is a shaded green oasis where perpetual springs nourish a rich variety of life. An overhanging spring line drips, drops, seeps and weeps a steady supply of water that you must walk underneath of to reach the vista platform at the end of the hike. This ancient water, which took thousands of years to percolate through porous sandstone, is a cool piece of heaven during the hot months of summer. Zion is certainly a place of contrasts and nowhere is it more evident than at this verdant spot in the middle of a harsh desert canyon. This is an easy to moderate hike conveniently located a few steps from the Zion Shuttle stop.
