My brother did the Arches, Bryce, Zion Trip a few months before me and said he would have liked to have spent three days at Zion. So my family did the same trip with three days at Zion. I would have liked to have spent four or five days there. It is overwhelmingly beautiful. I would suggest visiting the other... More

Zion National Park is very cool as the whole park is based inside the canyon, rather than on top of it. You cannot drive the scenic drive yourself as cars are banned but they have a regular shuttle that has automatic narration. All the ranger activities had finished even though the weather was still good and the park was packed... More

Had a great day in the park. As it was late in the season, things were not as busy as some people had warned us. Shuttles always had room. Took a couple of hikes. Got an early start so the first one to the Emerald Pools was quiet. The second, to the Narrows, had lots of people on the trail.... More

We love national parks. Zion is incredible. There are not enough adjectives to describe the awesome wonder of this place. A few suggestions: Take every ranger talk, walk and ride that you can. The park rangers do a great job of learning about the park, so they can teach us. At the museum a ranger talked with us about the... More

I really loved this more than all the parks we visited. The beauty of the colors are breathtaking. I could have stayed there for days, and will in the future. I think that this is the most colorful, besides Bryce Canyon. We also saw a mountain goat, which was a treat. We took a tour down into the canyon. Great... More

We visited in October outside of the holiday season and summer heat. We also arrived on Wednesday when crowds were lower, on Friday and Saturday the crowds were noticeably higher, but not unbearable. The temperature in October is also perfect, not too hot or cold during the day and evening. Each morning the wind is up and it was cold... More

It was our first visit to Zion National Park and we will go back for further exploration. Early October was a perfect time to go with cottonwoods and other foliage turning color, wildlife to view (deer, bighorn sheep,) great hiking weather and blue skies. There were a lot of people, but the shuttles handled it well. I like the way... More

If you in Vegas you must take a 125 mile drive to Zion National Park. It's a must see place especially if you like the outdoors. Great beautiful hiking trails for all levels. The beauty of this place says it all. The are B & B's, camping and great outdoor sight seeing.

They've figured it out here. The shuttle comes frequently and is clean, quick and has a recorded tour that explains what you're seeing, There are great day hikes for all abilities and the views are awesome. We did the Observation Point hike, which is a steep 4 mile hike with ever-changing views. Bring plenty of water, sturdy shoes and enough... More
