Ascent Trip Report

Took the East Rim Trail up to Observation Point. Word of warning,,, it gets extremely hot during the summer months so come well prepared with plenty of water. There's not a ton of shade at the top either, so just be ready for heat. That being said,, this is 99% trail, quite well maintained. It's also about 11.5 miles which is 2 miles longer than the trial head says. Great fun, I loved this hike, amazing views of Zion from the top and even a little bit of slot canyon in the middle to change it up.
