I am a local and I consider this to be the best trail in Zion National Park. There are some logistical factors to consider if you want to do the entire trail. Using two vehicles, one at trail's head and one at trail's end seems to work the best.
We explore the East Rim Trail (road to trail head is near East Entrance Station – north side of road). The short road ends at a small dirt parking lot. The East Rim Trail goes for more than 10 miles (to Weeping Rock). We hike until we decide to retrace our steps back to the car. The sandy trail is... 更多
