Bryce Canyon National Park is also a hiker's must. A deep canyon that is hidden by lush forests and meadows making for striking natural beauty. Similarly, Zion National Park, like the others took over a million years to create and thus boasts incredible rock formations and superb opportunities to enjoy another unique natural playground. To continue your canyon tour, hike the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
