We visited here with our teenage daughter, having spent a week in the Grand Canyon and other deserts - the green of the trees against the red of the rock was a pleasant surprise. This park contains awesome scenery, which is also readily accessible (when compared to some parts of, say, Canyonlands). The difference here is that you are mostly... More

Great views all along the way. Many stops allow you all the time you want to explore what you want. Takes time but well worth it

Absolutely breathtaking National Park. The trails provide views of spectacular rock outcroppings. However, while visiting in July, the park is too crowded to enjoy the vistas ( this review submitted by someone who enjoys solitude in nature). We also entered the park through Kolob Canyon, and hiked Taylor Creek trail, which was much more to my liking. On the plus... More

After visiting The Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon etc it was nice to get down low and look up. Spectacular drive to get to Zion Canyon through the tunnel and then the windy road down. Beautiful scenery and an easy walk from the 'bus stop. Great day out.

I absolutely LOVE visiting Zion National Park and never had a horrible experience until this park. We drive there and are told to park in Springdale if visitor center is full (which it was). We drove through entire park to get to the other end to the visitor center (no parking) and continue OUT of the park to Springdale to... More

This is the main attraction of Zion National Park and the main activity is to simply view the majestic rock formations rising up from the canyon floor. It is a narrow canyon; after the turn-off from Hwy 9, the canyon is little more than the width of the river and the road combined. In fact, when there is a significant... More

It is almost the same latitude as Yosemite and has the magnificent solid rocks jutting up around you. Really busy and the shuttle ride is nice to see the entire valley plus lots of hikes of varying degrees.

While the canyon may appear small one finds in hiking that the canyon is both large and difficult to travel on foot. There are nice hard surface paths quite suitable for wheelchairs and there are paths which require arduous climbing. A great place from end to end

We had a great time visiting the park. We arrived early and came in the scenic highway from Mt Carmel. What a spectacular drive in. Getting there early we were able to park at the visitor center and utilize the fantastic shuttle system. We were there on a Saturday it was busy but we didn't feel it. We had to... More
