Cable Mountain via East Rim Trail and East Mesa Trail
This is a difficult one way trail in Zion National Park.
I did this hike in the winter with my boyfriend, and boy was I tired. I want to give it 4 stars only because I hiked up to Angel's Landing just after and was blown away, but I'll stick with 5 stars since it was beautiful on its own (just not as harrowing/rewarding as Angel's Landing, which is hard to beat!). ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
?? 5 - 6 hrs, 10.6 km, return elevation change 2148 ft. Long drop offs, Climbs through Echo Canyon to viewpoint of Zion Canyon. Access to Cable Mtn., Deertrap Mtn. and East Rim Trail.
Moderate to Hard hike on a clear and cool day under sunny skies. We planned to hike the Hidden Canyon trail as well, but it has been closed since July 2018 due to rocks slide.
Out and Back to Observation Point via East Rim & East Mesa Trails.
