While most folks visit and remember Zion's Main Canyon (the one with the mandatory shuttle buses in the Spring and Summer) for its absolutely breathtaking and dizzying steep walls, viewed from the bottom, unless you want to climb and hike up to the rim ....there is another LESSER KNOW NORTH-WESTERN SECTION to Zion National Park. That is, YOU CAN VISIT... More

The Lee's Pass trail is awesome for horse riding or for hiking. The trail is well marked and well structured and will handle both hikers and horses. With a horse, you can ride all the way to Hop Valley (my personal favorite place to ride in the world!) or you can just go up the canyon and enjoy LaVerkin creek... More

A lot of reviews here seem to come from people in their cars which is an odd way to review a Canyon, but to each their own. A group of 3 of us hiked in at Lee Pass and spent 2 nights camping along the La Verkin Creek Trail at designated campsites. The sights we hiked to off the main... More

This was our first hike of the trip and we saw a rattle snake on our way in, and a deer and its baby on the way out! A lovely hike (Taylor Creek Fork) crossing and re-crossing the creek multiple times, passing some charming old cabins and ending up in a beautiful double arch. Uncrowded and peaceful.

We drove through this northwest area of Zion on our way headed south, before entering from the west. We were in a bit of a hurry so just did the relatively short drive from that visitor's center. Can't comment on hiking there, scenery was pretty, but I think the main canyon and entry from the east part of the park... More

This is very different from the main park. Much less crowded. Took Timber Creek Overlook trail out to look out point where you can see the N Rim of the Grand Canyon in the distance on a clear day. Moderate climb was rewarded by the spectacular 360 degree panorama at the end. Bring plenty of water as there is none... More

Absolutely gorgeous. Not crowded at all, as most people spend the majority of their time in the "main" attraction area of Zion National Park. There are multiple spots on the drive up the canyon where you can pull off to the side of the road and take spectacular pictures. The red rock is gorgeous!
