We didn't get to spend much time here, but it is beautiful and well maintained. Our national parks are such a wonderful set of treasures. And the annual pass is well worth it.

It is mind boggling to conceive of that pretty Virgin River slicing through the plateau to create this gorge. The scope and the beauty of the erosion reminds that Zion was once the drain for an inland ocean. Elevates ones soul, and reduces one's ego.

Absolutely amazing place to visit and must go vacation destination in US. We went only for one day there. Arrived right before 10 AM on a Sun and found one of the last parking spots left.

Very narrow road with many switchbacks. Get in line as there are many cars and buses going in and out. The scenery is stunning but inly the passengers will see it. Grabs and massive come to mind.

Wow, I have traveled a lot, but never seen anything like this place, it is awe inspiring and a once in a lifetime trip. Honestly, I prefer this to Grand Canyon, you actually feel like yo are a part of the Canyon here, yo are in it, you can feel the water and the surroundings.

For the best view, and no crowds during July, hike the Watchman Trail and enjoy amazing views - and silence! Be sure to take water and sunscreen, since the Watchman is in the sun.

We were a little concerned about crowds but the day we went was not a problem. We went the end of June on a Wednesday, but early in the morning. The bus service through the park was very good & informative. A running narrative was easily heard inside the bus about the sights. We decided to take the bus all... More

Had a couple of great days here. Nice vibe to the place and nice cafe's etc. Lodge is also good and well maintained. Canyon is stunning. We saw it from the road, Canyon Overlook trail and observation point. Have a look at those reviews for details.
