Unbelievable scenic overlooks, hiking trails for all levels, and a very efficient shuttle system. On a 10 day trip, Zion was the 6th national park we visited and it had its own unique beauty and splendor. A must see.

You must drive the route yourself as you will see much more than just taking the shuttle. Unbelievable peaks, cliffs, and valleys.

The scenes were breathtaking. Overall it was a beautiful experience but could have done with less buses and campers. Many places to stop and take photos. Just go and do it.

My second time to Zion, and the drive though is still breathtaking. But you have to get off the main road and do some trails. I only did one day the first time and it was not enough, 3 days this time and saw things I never knew existed! My appreciation for this park has grown after this trip. My... More

I was unable to hike in Zion due to illness right before arriving in the park, we decided to drive the Canyon Scenic Drive. It was absolutely beautiful and made up for the disappointment of not being able to see the area on foot. You can take your time and pull off in the most amazing spots to take in... More

Incredible scenery, hiking, outdoor activities. We purchased a National Parks pass for the year and the pass worked brilliantly as we hopped between many parks.

There is a guided bus that runs every five minutes traveling to the top and back or you can hike your way through plenty of trails. Bring a lunch or enjoy a meal in the lunch area, as you can eat out on the lawn or at tables inside or outside. Children are welcomed. Wear good hiking shoes, drink plenty... More

We thought going to National Parks would be better once kids went back to school - not! We were there with the mobs of people. Parking is a nightmare! Persistence pays off though, we followed a couple and took there spot. We picked up the free shuttle service that takes you to the various stopping points on the scenic drive.... More
