"The Canyon Overlook Trail packs a lot of adventure into 1 mile and culminates in a dramatic overlook, with Pine Creek Canyon in the foreground and Zion Canyon beyond. Built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the early 1930s, the path reflects the trail-building craftsmanship found in other national parks of the same era, such as Grand Canyon and Yosemite. You’ll find some steep drop-offs along the route, but the terrain and short distance make it great for hikers of varied abilities, though you’ll want to keep young children close at hand." Read more
