A long trip from Las Vegas

I read several places where this was a nice day trip out of Las Vegas, just 2 1/2 hours. Not true. First off it took us 4 hours to get there and 5 hours back. What I never... read more

We are pretty well traveled and Zion ranks at or near the top of the most beautiful places we have ever seen. We were able to cram in memorable hikes on 3 of the trails, and regretted not having enough time for more--especially Angels Landing. We will be back...

Worth the drive. Plan on spending the day. Pack a lunch and enjoy many easy hikes to points of interest. Anxious to go back and hike the narrows.

Zion is one of my favorite national parks. The sheer size of some of the mountains, while you are down in the canyon makes you feel somewhat insignificant (but in a good way). You have to take the shuttle, which was not bad. My family and I pretty much got off at every single stop. Took us maybe 1.5 hrs... More

Few things are truly impossible but here lives one of them. To walk the trail at the foot of Zion Canyon and, at the end, say "I do not believe in God" (or anything similar) is just impossible. Some such being far beyond man has created a place to inspire devotion to Him no matter what religion you believe in.... More

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.
