Okay, so this is a great trail to get an aerial view over Zion. It's fairly easy, good underfoot and for a relatively small time investment has a good payoff at the end! The view does not really look over the main Zion Canyon, ie where the Virgin River runs, it overlooks the main road that leads to the (restricted) road into the canyon, which then swings round to Springdale. You need to go to Observation Point for the best aerial view of the main canyon, but that is a significant undertaking(!!)
The entrance to the trail is very close to the road tunnel through the mountain (IIRC the second one if coming from Bryce). The main problem with this trail is the very limited parking. There are just a few spaces on either side of the road. You have to get lucky or go early to find a space, it isn't really possible to hang around and wait. If you miss the parking spot you'll have a bit of a drive before it's possible to turn around and head back.
