Zion Canyon is a must see attraction in Zion ...there is a free shuttle to drop you off and pick you up at the various locations and hiking trails. Stunning views are all around...the mountains are truly majestic. Hikes are for all abilities and ages...choose carefully!

The National Parks are America's greatest treasure. The mountains are majestic, the walking paths are well kept and easy/moderate. You can hike for one hour, or two, or three as you prefer. The lodge has good food. Everyone owes it to himself to go to the American parks.

If you are into the photography, as usual, make sure to get up early to capture the sun playing on the mountain face. Or wait for the sunset hours. We even spotted some rock climbers, deer mule and other small animals. It was fresh and cool, just the perfect time of the year to come and visit. Will be back!... More

Lovely, hikes for all ages and abilities. If you have kids don't miss the riverside trail and plan to let them play in the water at the mouth of the narrows (hiking the narrows is also wonderful, but not so much with little kids). There is just so much to see in take in, it is incredible. There is always... More

The views in the canyon are absolutely stunning, the colors, rock formations, trails, wildlife are all there with easy access from the shuttle system. I think all the major parks should outlaw private vehicles like Zion and set up a comparable shuttle system.

This canyon has become so popular, at times you feel like you are at Disney World. You have to wait for a second shuttle, or park in Springdale, because the lots are full. I loved the solid ute and grandeur of visiting in winter, but if you are in the area, don't miss it for any reason. And the more... More

This was the 8th US National Park we visited and it was the least visitor-friendly. We were booked into the Lodge but discovered on arrival that we needed a permit to drive up there. No info as to how/where to obtain such a thing. We decided to try the visitor's centre but the carpark was full and signs instructed us... More

The main canyon is filled with opportunities to take short, medium or strenuous hikes. You also have the option to ride the shuttle to the viewpoints and simply enjoy the different geological formations. You also bike the canyon road. From weeping rocks to private canyon views, the canyon offers something for everyone.Hint: If you want to enjoy fewer people on... More

A great place - the fact that only a very few cars go into the Canyon is a bonus - popular though in April so I worry it you are looking for solitude this is not a good option. Awesome scenery - a Must see

We started out late in the day but we were able to see quite a bit at the park. There are some hikes that shouldn't be done with young children but I believe the visitor's center could advise on which hikes would be accessible for youngsters. My friend and I wanted to see the Grotto, Emerald Pools, Weeping Rock and... More
