Beautiful and breathtaking. Everywhere you looked was an exquisite site to see. There was a free shuttle that transported you to the exact hiking spot you wanted to explore.

There are probably five different types of rocks mountains formation types etc in this park. I've been to many US national parks, and this one is by far in the top 5---think Rockies in that list---so you can see how impressed we were. We took the parks shuttle bus and stopped everywhere and walked around and took photos. We had... More

Zion is an incredibly beautiful national park! We only had one day here, and one could easily spend longer, but we were still satisfied with all we were able to see and do. Since our time was limited, probably the best hike we did was starting on the Kayenta Trail and then meeting up with the Upper and Lower Emerald... More

We drove in from Monument Valley down the scenic highway and my word how stunning, I nearly crashed the car on two or three occassions ogling at the views all around, then we got to the canyon floor and it got even better, we only stayed for two nights but our eyes were aching at the beauty of the place....

We decided to take a day trip to Zion. I should mention it costs $25 per car, but it gives you a pass for days, We did the scenic drive for a big and even went through the tunnel (which has windows for us claustrophobic types). After, we chose the emerald pools trail. It was beautiful, and gave us great... More

Highlight of our trip to St George. Buy an annual park pass for $80us if you are going to visit more than one national park. Then take the free shuttle up to the top of the park walk an easy path and start being amazed. We chose the easygoing walks but there is something for all fitness levels even wheelchair... More

Glorious Zion ... if you are nervous about high edgy roads sit on the inside side of the car as the drive down into Zion is zig zaggy with steep sides. This is a lovely place to visit and I would recommend staying overnight so make plans probably a year in advance to assure a reservation. While there take the... More

Plan to spend at least 1-2 days at each park. I couldn't quit saying WOW! All the rangers were friendly and helpful. If you take the shuttle you will see great views.

Zion is fantastic for hiking, photography and getting away from it all. There is definitely something for everyone here. Babies and toddlers can splash in the river, strollers are allowed on many hiking paths, and there are some super strenuous hikes within the main Zion area and in the park off the beaten path. There is not a bad picture... More
