This is part of the Colorado Plateau in the state of Utah in the United States. Ancestral Puebloans, a community of farmers was the first settlers in Zion approximately 1500 years ago. It was in 1860 early Mormon pioneers came to the region and built small communities and farmed the river terraces. Park elevations range from 3600 to 8700 feet... More

Zion is so incredibly beautiful with its high craggy mountains to the valley to the Virgin River. I enjoyed the hiking while there but could have easily sat and stared at these vistas all day. It was as if I was in the temple of God.

The trail was amazing but long. It is advisable to come prepare. I think a good walking stick, right type of shoe will be very helpful because it is very slippery.

We made our first visit to Zion National Park in June and stayed in the Lodge in the park. It was wonderful waking up and drinking coffee on our deck watching the sunrise over the mountains and watching the sunset while drinking wine. The cabins are so convenient to just walking out and starting out on one of the many... More

This was my first visit to a national park. It is about 2.5 hrs from Las Vegas. Hotels are lined up about a half mile from park. (I stayed at Hampton Inn. Excellent choice) The park is beautiful beyond words. Great vistas. Try the "Ride with a Ranger". Sign up at the Desk in visitors center. It's very clean and... More

The main canyon is your starting point for everything there is to visit. You will drive through it by car (or by shuttle bus during the peak of tourist season). Some wildlife can be seen, but Zion mostly offers both short and long hikes, including The Narrows and the Angel's Landing trail.

We were staying in St George and took two different day trips to see Zion. The first day we made the mistake of not even trying to park inside the park. We took the Springdale Shuttle to the Zion shuttle, but had standing room only because we were the last stop. It's hard to do with 4 small kids (one... More

Zion NP was just what I needed in getting away from the city. Great shuttle service into the park along with the guides pointing out things to see along the way. Most of the hikes were long of which I was not ready for. But the shorter hikes were great - especially to The Narrows and spend time in the... More
