We did some hiking and just hung out in the canyon area. Every thing was well managed and a wonderful experience for our visit to Zion National Park.

Awesome national park. Very pretty. It does get crowded. Not able to drive own vehicle, must ride shuttle to reach trails/overlooks. Recommend arriving early, parking difficult later in day.

Our family traveled for 2 weeks mainly to Canyon like attractions...Mesa Verde, GC, Zion, Bryce, Arches....Zion easily stood out as everyone's favorite. By far. You are in the canyon looking up and around, not down like the others. The park is fantastically maintained due to the policy to restrict passenger vehicles in the actual park areas and only allow shuttle... More

We went to Zion NP for a two day stay on the way to California . We were tired, hot, and awaiting knee replacement surgery, so we were not walking all that well. We decided to try the river walk - about a mile I think - and WE MADE IT very comfortably. Then we decided maybe we could tackle... More

Zion National Park should be on every person's travel list! Truly one of the most beautiful places Ive ever been. Was skeptical about the shuttle system since I like to drive and be "in control" but it works great! Have to get to the park early in busy summer months to get parking. Shuttles run both directions every few minutes... More

Beautiful ride on shuttle buses, although they are not air conditioned and you really should get off and go hiking!

We did a hike to see Emerald Falls and just loved it. Easy hike to do, well maintained trail, but you do have to go up! The walls of the canyon are just spectacular! Give yourself a full day here or more.

We visited 3 national parks on our trip to Utah and Zion National Park is one of the best. This park has everything... majestic mountains, colorful sandstone formations, towering canyons, lush forest, abundant wildflowers, cascading waterfalls and rushing rivers. We loved the variety of hikes and trails at Zion. Get up early to beat the heat and the crowds. Our... More

Highly recommend driving only 60 minutes to take in this National Park. We got there around 9:30am and the parking was almost full. The trails were easy to hike, even for small children. Breathtaking views and vista's.

Spent two weeks touring Utah and visited all 5 National parks in the State. Zion was the most crowded park by far. We hiked some of the more popular routes to see the famous scenery. We saw waterfalls, pools and wildlife. But the number and noise of other people took away from the enjoyment of the natural beauty. Zion is... More
