Court of the Patriarchs reviews
One of many famous landmarks in Zion National Park. Easy to see these 3 mountain peaks from a viewpoint along Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. Best viewed at sunrise or earlier in the day. more »
This is not a difficult hike. In reality it is a short hike with an incredible view of the three patriarchs. more »
The Court of the Patriarchs is Shuttle Stop Four. There are no services. We got off the bus, which cannot wait, and climbed a very short but terribly steep trail to a viewpoint. This walk ascends 40 feet to allow one to see over the trees. The short trail is not a good bet for wheelchairs, but most of the view can be seen from the park road looking across the Virgin River. Abraham Peak at 6890 ft., Isaac Peak at 6825 ft., Mount Moroni at 5690 ft., Jacob Peak at 6831 ft. The OT names were given to the mountains (except Mount Moroni) by Frederick Vining Fisher, a Methodist minister, who visited the park in 1916.
Great photo-op spot, dont forget to take the 2 minute hike to get to a higher spot to get proper view of Court of the Patriarchs and gives a nice vantage point for taking pics as well. Hike is right on the Shuttle stop. Suitable for family, kids and elderly as well.
