This popular trail climbs past lush greenery and wildflowers to a series of cliffside springs above an alcove. Signs identify flora along the way. The paved trail is just a half-mile round-trip with a 98-foot elevation gain. Begin at the Weeping Rock shuttle stop of Zion Canyon Scenic Drive.

  • The springs form where water in Navajo Sandstone meets an impermeable layer of shale.
  • Try to time your visit for the afternoon, when the sun illuminates the droplets as thousands of glistening jewels—a great photo opportunity!
  • Observation Point Trail begins at the same trailhead and climbs high up the east canyon wall for great views.
