Canyon filled with jaw-dropping beauty, especially at sunrise and sundown when the light brings the canyon walls to life. Free shuttle takes you to many easy hikes throughout the park. For a greater challenge try two hikes: Angel's Landing and The Narrows. The scenic route is closed to cars April-October, a GREAT idea to cut down on traffic and pollution.... More

The song from Led Zeppelin is just perfect for this park ; architecture of the nature is so wonderful and so quiet that you could believe of heaven ; you can of course drive into the park but to feel really the amazing canyons , you could walk going down into the canyons ; well organized , you have severals...

I didn't realize that you had to first go through an entry point at Zion National Park to get to Bryce Canyon. However, I was not disappointed as we passed through the quaint town of Springdale (we did stop for a look at a pottery shop). This scenic climb through sandy-colored mountains is one I'll not forget. We used our... More

What a beautiful sanctuary The $ 25.00 entry fee is good for 7 days of park entry. The shuttles were convient and always available. If you weren't planning to hike you could sit and relax taking in the beautiful sites on the shuttle for the full loop around which is about 1 1/2 hrs. They have several drop off and... More

It is awesome to see and hike the trails in Zion Park, UT. If you can get there in the spring you can beat the crowds and not have to use the bus that is the only way in to the park after May. Of course, you may have to find just the right day with spring weather being unpredictable,... More

This is a fabulous place to visit in spring or fall. I think summer would be extremely hot. The scenery is beautiful and this is a lovely canyon. Hiking trails are excellent and well maintained. The emerald pool trails are steeper than I expected and way too many people but worth a trip especially if you get out early. There... More

Zion National Park is 1 hr east of St. George, UT on Hwy 9. It is also about 2 1/2 hrs north of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park and also 2 1/2 hrs north of Lake Powell. The road from Hurricane takes you through LaVerkin and Springdale. Springdale is a little more upscale than Hurricane and... More

Zion's is distinctly different from Arches and Bryce Canyon and consists of steep cliffs, interesting rock formations, and breath-taking scenery. The main canyon is a peaceful place if you go in a time other than the summer and the views are outstanding.

If it's not on it, add it. This place is like nothing I have seen on earth. Breath taking, or in my case, eye watering. Loved every trail and view! Took a million photos that didn't capture the awesomeness. We arrived there the day they started the shuttle, so we were able to drive through the tunnel (highly recommend) but... More
