We were passing Vermilion Cliffs when drive from Flagstaff to Zion National Park. Beautiful scenery, well worst stopping by if you are near this area. However, it is not a destination by itself; Zion or Bryce Canyons are more dramatic.

There are lots of beautiful areas to enjoy here. You can hike, 4 x 4 near the beauty or see it from the comfort of your vehicle from the highway(s.) Do some research and have a great time.

We drove around the monument on our way from The Grand Canyon to Zion National Park and it was absolutely beautiful! We didn't have time for hiking (only the occasional photo op) but I would love to go back and experience it a little more. We didn't even know it was there and we were very glad to have such... More

Challenging hike with wonderful scenery. We also had a permit to South Coyote Buttes and saw wonderful scenery there, too.

We drove around the monument on our way back from the north rim of the Grand Canyon and we never tired of the great views. The varied topography of the American West never ceases to amaze us, and this was one more example of why we keep coming back!

The road to the start of the hiking trail is rough (8 miles dirt road) . The hike itself has the most stunning colors - especially if you go during midday, when the sun shines into the gorge and plays with the sandstone. We had to climb up and down some rocks and some parts are very narrow, but it... More

We made a quick stop here on our way to Page, AZ. This is not for the unconditioned walker/hiker. The trail is deep sand and not any paving. The climb is steep and in the hot AZ July sun a challenge. Plenty of folks trying to make it to the first covered area a gazebo. From that vantage point one... More

We drove along the cliffs but unfortunately did not make it up top as it is a significant haul from Lake Powell where we were staying. Still the stunning view from down below was worth the time investing as we drove north toward Page. Be aware that while posted on the north-south route of Hwy 89 the road closure is... More
