A beautiful drive with lots of picturesque spots. Plenty of places to pull off the road and go on short hike. Saw mountain goats right on the side of the road. Take your time and take in the natural beauty of the towering cliffs, the wildlife and floral displays.

Lots of opportunities to take beautiful pictures and observe wildlife. While on the scenic drive, we saw mountain goats run up the steep mountains which was amazing. Many trails to choose from ranging from beginner to expert and rangers are always gojng around the trails so you can easily ask for help. Rangers are nice enough to let you take... More

The whole park is amazing and beautiful! Well worth the money to come into the park and the drive. So much to do and see. We even saw big horn sheep.

Pleasant drive Saturday morning; cool but sunny. Picture taking of steep cliffs, trail side views and flowing river. No issues with parking. Went on simple walks along the Riverside trail to the Narrows, Weeping rock, Emerald pools trail (deer and small waterfall), and the Grotto trail. Ate at the Zion Lodge grill for lunch. Enjoyed a tasty grilled chcken sandwich... More

Hubby & I drove to Zion from vegas 2.5 hours). This is a smaller national park. We went on the scenic road first. Saw over 40 mule deer! Gorgeous. Go early to see the deer as they started bedding down with the warmed temps.

We drove our car into the scenic canyon drive on a clear winter morning. It was extremely cold. We did the Riverside trail. It was beautiful with the majestic canyons glowing under the sun and the Virgin river so crystal clear. We saw some deers in the park. It was lovely. Highly recommend this park and Bryce Canyon.

We drove this in our car in winter and loved being able to go slowly to see the sights. Amazing canyon that gets progressively narrower. Drive carefully as there is plenty of wildlife--turkeys, deer, mountain goats--along the way. Several stops to get out and hike or take in the view.

This was our first visit to Zion National park. We spent 2 days here. Parking can be very difficult if you don't get here first thing in the day. Drive has several great places to stop and see the canyons. Highly recommend.

Zion was on our way to Bryce Canyon but we had no idea how beautiful Zion would be. What a great segue from one to the other, and Red Canyon, I didn't even know about this! Wonderful scenery, breathtaking all the way. Cannot take enough pictures, the beauty of digital!
