The weather for January was beautiful. The park was not real crowded which made for a pleasureable day with driving and short hikes. This is a great place but need several days to do it justice.

We came in after a big snow storm and it was just beautiful. It was a highlight of our 6 weeks in the USA. Majestic.

The snow contrast with the red rock was awe inspiring. Icicles hung off of the rock formations. Parking is a problem due to the popularity of the park. Talked with travelers from Germany who also were stunned by the views. It's well worth your time.

Traveling through the main canyon is a beautiful experience. Trees and the river at eye level, towering cliffs all around. Very peaceful.

Zion National Park is a must see for lovers of National Parks and the outdoors in general. The canyon is only a fraction of the park, but it is the most popular & heavily traveled area. Too me it reminded me of a mini red-rocked Yosemite, crowds included. We visited during the off season (mid-week November) and I still found... More

The road through the main canyon is closed during the busy summer, but the free shuttles in Zion are an excellent way to get into the canyon. It stops at a many points of interest, including the Temple of Sinawava, which accesses the Narrows, Weeping Rock, The Grotto, and Zion Human History Museum. The geology of this canyon is impressive,... More

Comparing to other National Parks, Zion is relatively small. It's basically a 15 mile long portion of a large Canyon, with a river at the bottom. It has the Rusty on Green color palette Arizona is known for. Because it's a deep canyon with running water, it has some extreme diversity - anything from swamps along the river to mountain... More

We traveled to Zion in early November hoping to get there before it go too cold. We were blessed with beautiful weather and even more beautiful scenery. Zion is amazing. We hiked quite a few trails and weren't disappointed. At this time of the year buses aren't running so we just drove the scenic byway and stopped at the trailheads... More

This is a beautiful place. We stayed in a cabin on the floor of the canyon and awoke to wild turkey and deer on the lawn outside. The scenery is breathtaking and a complete contrast to other canyons which are, by and large, dry, dusty deserts. Visit if you can
