The Eagle Crags Trail, while technically outside the park, is a beautiful and rewarding hike with amazing views of Zion Canyon. It’s a 3-5 hour hike (5.7 miles round trip) up the very scenic Vermillion Cliffs and is located just south of Rockville.
To get to the trailhead, take highway 9 out of Springdale towards Rockville. Once it Rockville take Bridge Rd south until you get to the Trailhead (about 2 miles).
The same rules and prizes will apply as the Observation Club. Any runner who sends us a picture of themselves from the top of Eagle Crags Trail within 72 hours of the end of the race which includes:
1. A clear view of your face
2. Your bib with bib numbers clearly visible
3. Your finisher medal in plain view
4. A clear background that shows you actually completed the hike
will join the Eagle Club and forever be immortalized on our website. We will post all those pictures on our website along with the runner’s name and city. Additionally, those runners will get 50% OFF the next year’s registration.
