Must see.

This has to be one of my favorite places in all of the National Parks and one that must not be missed if a chance ever presents itself.

I agree with other reviewers that this national park ranks among the top in dramatic and unique scenery: the swirling red and white rock formations, towering canyon walls, the wildlife, and the rushing Virgin River giving it all life--making this desert locale inhabitable. It is unfortunate that the park is extremely crowded, detracting immensely from the experience. Granted, we visited... More

Zion is a scenic park, but it has it's problems. We arrived mid-week, in the off -season, and it was crammed to capacity....people everywhere(hate to see it in the summer tourist season!). Parking is at a premium at most locations......remember, you are in a narrow dead-end canyon. The mandatory shuttle system system began on March 15, so we arrived before... More

Zion National Park- My husband and I have only been to four national parks- Haleakala, Grand Canyon, Big Bend, and Zion. Zion is our favorite. Amazing views, wildlife, great hikes. Everything a national park should have. We went mid March, cool enough that snow was on some parts of the mountains, but warm enough that a light jacket was sufficient.... More

This makes my list of one of the 10 most beautiful places in the world. Looking up at the majestic peaks, waterfalls, and rock formations is really a spiritual experience

We hiked Mystery Canyon which ends in the Narrows and camped at the entrance to the canyon. You either have to book this way in advance or get really lucky. We all got in late and had a great time. Kind of cool staying in the park over night even if it is at the entrance. I have been through... More

I read several places where this was a nice day trip out of Las Vegas, just 2 1/2 hours. Not true. First off it took us 4 hours to get there and 5 hours back. What I never read was that when you drive thru the park, you come out miles east of where you entered. (no where upon entering... More

We are pretty well traveled and Zion ranks at or near the top of the most beautiful places we have ever seen. We were able to cram in memorable hikes on 3 of the trails, and regretted not having enough time for more--especially Angels Landing. We will be back...
