    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!). ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Observation Point out & back- Zion NP

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.
