I don't think there's anything more majestic than the main canyon at Zion. The walls seem to soar to the heavens. The views from different angles make it new each time you see it. Take the time to simply relax and enjoy this beautiful spot. Don't forget to take the entire scenic drive too, it's so worth the time. You... More

This is just the most beautiful national park. There a wide variety of views and different trails you can do. The colours of the rocks are just fabulousWe easily filled two full days and would definitely return. We visited Grand Canyon and Bryce but this was a definite favourite.

Zion Park was well organized to accommodate travelers of all abilities. The hikes were described such that you could pick the right one for your capabilities. The bus system for town and for the canyon was terrific.

We stayed in Kanab which is central to three national parks. Zion is breathtaking in its closeness to the visitor. The Grand Canyon is bigger by far but needs to be taken in as a vista. Zion you feel part of. Formations you can walk on, streams to cross and mammoth rock mountains that is jaw dropping. The light on... More

In this travelers opinion, the single best attraction in Zion National Park is the hike to the Emerald Pools. The trail head is opposite Zion Lodge. The hike is 1.2 miles round trip with less than 100 feet in elevation gain. Continuing to Upper pool is worth it and children will find the trail features intriguing. If you are there... More

Great for kids. Easy to navigate even with large groups. We really really loved it here. Defiantly plan on making a return trip without the children to do the more intense homes like the subway. But the narrows were wonderful and the kids had a blast.

It was very pleasant to walk into the Zion Canyon. I would recommend to take the shuttle and get off at the last stop. Bring your bicycle and ride back to the lodges/campground is a great experience. Lots of restaurants close to the canyon :)
