Leading to an outcropping that towers 517 feet above Angels Landing, the Observation Point Trail, at an elevation of 6,508 feet, provides one of the best views in Zion National Park. The vista includes well-known rock monoliths such as the Great White Throne, Cable Mountain, Cathedral Mountain, Castle Dome, the Three Patriarchs and the Watchman, located at the far south end of the park. A strenuous path that includes many switchbacks, one of the highlights of the journey is the stroll through Echo Canyon, a scenic slot canyon.
