We had smaller children and teenagers with us and we all had fun. We got off on the last stop from the shuttle and did the riverside walk which is wheelchair/stroller friendly. When you get to the end of the 1 mile hike, you get into the river and proceed hiking up the gorgeous canyon (The Narrows) in and out... More

In some ways I enjoyed Zion canyon better than the Grand Canyon. Many more excellent hiking trails. Many are very easy and provide spectacular views for almost no effort. You can also do very challenging hikes if you so desire. Stayed 3 days and could have stayed longer.

We arrived at this park after many hours travelling quite late. Upon arrival, we realised we had to pay over $20 dollars to get our car through or $12pp.. We instead parked outside and walked through the visitors entrance (which was shut and subsequently free). The free shuttles ran until 9 and the tour guide lady was very friendly and... More

Our first stop during our 3 park vacation was Zion National Park. This Park should be one of the 7 wonders of the world. As an American I truly suggest all Americans see this Park as well as Bryce National Park and The Arches all in Utah before you travel abroad. We took the complimentary shuttle all through the park... More

Easy access to both simple hikes and strenuous hikes. Scenes are varied within a short shuttle ride.....emerald pools, climb to top of peak in the middle of canyon, water "weeping" out of walls, walking in the river in a narrow canyon...all within a 15 min drive from one end to the other. Had a great time with family of 15.

Having driven through Moab we decided to take the bus tour through Zion. The tour was excellent with a good guide providing information throughout. You can disembark at various points each bus arrives at each stop within 15 minutes. The scenery is breath-taking. It cost $25 for a 7 day bus and car pass. We used the exit route to... More

Very pretty park, fantastic scenery. Some nice hikes for various levels of ability. Frequent shuttle service that is well run, but no air conditioning on shuttles (open roof windows for air and close them when it rained - and it did very heavily). Plenty of shade and clean toilets that actually flushed (doesn't happen often in national parks). Overall very... More

FREE transportation. Yes you have to pay a fee to visit the park but once that is done, the transportation is free and the... More

This is really a tale of not one, but Two National Parks.....and yes, I am talking about Zion! You see, while most folks visit and remember Zion's Main Canyon (the one with the mandatory shuttle buses in the Spring and Summer) for its absolutely breathtaking and dizzying steep walls, viewed from the bottom, unless you want to climb and hike...
