Tom’s Experience at Menu Falls:
Menu Falls is a little alcove with a waterfall in Zion National Park. It isn’t very well known and is usually seldom visited especially when the shuttles are running. It got its name because it was included on the cover of the original Zion Lodge menu.
Menu Falls is located about .5 miles up Zion Canyon from the Big Bend shuttle stop. If you go when the shuttles aren’t running there is a small turnoff on each side of the road to park while you visit the falls. There isn’t much of a hike from the road.
A short trail will take you to a small deck that allows you to view the falls. Menu Falls is pretty small and doesn’t have a ton of water but it is still a nice spot to visit. Dogs are not allowed on most trails in Zion National Park.
Menu Falls Trail Info:
Menu Falls is about .5 miles after the Big Bend shuttle stop. If you go when the shuttles are running you will have to walk from there. If you are able to drive up canyon, you can drive right to the base of the deck.

Tom’s Experience hiking to Weeping Rock:
The trail is paved and leads to a neat rock formation that leaks water like tears to keep you cool during the hot summer months.
It is also only .4 miles round trip. No dogs are allowed on this trail.
The trail is above a small stream and easy to follow; there are signs along the way that point out different desert plants.
This is also the same trailhead as the more difficult Hidden Canyon.
Trail Info: Exit the Zion shuttle at the Weeping Rock Trailhead. There are outhouses at the trailhead as well as maps and other information.
