Zion National Park is an amazing place and one of America's greatest national parks. I'd recommend a visit to anyone and it's well worth the price of admission. I arrived around 6am, before the ranger stations were open and the road is not closed off. I just found a place to park and went on my hike. I left in... More

We visited Zion in late April for two days. The park is beautiful. We hiked up to Angels Landing, well almost, and made it to Scouts Point. The switchbacks are phenomenal but you should be in decent shape for the uphill hike. The views are gorgeous. Also hiked most of the trails, there is just so much to see and... More

Great place, very different geology than the Grand Canyon, great visitors center, shuttle service, and restaurant just outside the park entrance

Spent one day taking in the spectacular views, first on shuttle bus which has excellent narration. Took several easy/moderate hikes which brought us up close & personal with Zion. This is a most amazing place. Riverside Walk is the best!

The main canyon includes the ranger station and shuttle. When you enter the park you are given a map with the shuttle schedules and hiking trails. There are outside informational plaque that reiterates what is in the map/booklet and what is available at each of the stops on the shuttle. When we visited in May, there were only 3 (over... More

Wonderful drive into the park and excellent shuttle services to canyon. We spent 3 days exploring the park. There are hikes for all abilities. And you can vicariously enjoy the courage of intrepid climbers. Amazing variety of experiences in one park.

We parked at the main visitor center and used the shuttle bus. Since it was early May things were not too crowded on the bus. Note that parking in the visitor center does fill up quickly and many people parked in Springdale streets and walked in or rode the Springdale bus in. As long as you get an early start,... More

The beauty is unexcelled. Truly one of the wonders of the world. But in the peak season, you must ride the free shuttle, and it's jammed with people.

We were staying in Nevada so missed the visitor center, it closed before we got there due to time change difference between Nevada and Utah . We hiked the middle and lower... More

This place has such a great natural beauty to it that any sort of weather adds that more dramatic of an effect to the area. I have been here many many times and, although a very crowded area and also a jumping off point for those embarking on the Grand Circle, this place can be fairly overwhelming. If you are... More
