  • Impressive spot very near the road. Just walk some metres and you are there. The sign gives you more information about the names. Good place,

  • This is amazing!! The mountains are named Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Gorgeous view. We ate our packed lunch at the shuttle stop just to enjoy this magnificent view.

  • walk across the street from the viewpoint down to the river, pretty waterfall and view of the mountains and a bridge. great photo opp at sunrise or sunset. beware, lots of wasp activity at the river. Actual viewpoint is a stroll up a hill a bit, and does provide a nice view as well. Shuttle stop 4. No people at all. Quiet and beautiful.
  • 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.
