Mount Zion Ridge Viewpoint Professional Review and Guide
"Mount Zion is an isolated peak far from the more popular trails on national park land, but it offers national park–caliber scenery. Though the old fire lookout building at the summit is long gone and trees now block most of the view, savvy hikers know that all is not lost and the former views are still available. By continuing your hike less than 0.5 mile beyond the summit, you come to a superb rocky overlook with unobstructed vistas that extend across a wide range of rugged peaks and forested valleys. If you time your hike for the latter part of June, you can enjoy acres of pinkblooming rhododendrons along the climb to the top. It’s a terrific one-two punch from such a relatively short hike."
