Beautiful park with ton of scenery.

Te park shuttles will take you everywhere. The visitors center and the human history museum with a short film are a must-see.

The climb is a bit more effort than it says in the visitor center. It's not hard but there are a few places that asks more of you than a walk in the park. The view is really good and worth the climb. The park is very vertical rather than expansive.

From the waters of the Virgin River to the towering buttes, the main canyon of Zion National Park is a stupendous site to behold. During the busiest times of the year a free shuttle runs from the visitor center to a number of key points in the canyon. An excellent recorded narration and friendly drivers make the shuttle easy to... More

We had so much fun in Zion. They are trying to keep the cars down by offering free bus rides to various stops in the park. Th bus comes every few minutes so the wait is never long. They have a recording running about park info which is interesting. The hikes are amazing they have easy to more difficult. We... More

If you have a more powerful word than majestic, apply it now. We did all the trails in the south park except observation point and found each one to have its own beauty. For jaw-dropping thrills and views, Angels Landing will fulfill your needs but there are too many people for safe hiking. The best kept secret is Taylor Creek... More

We took the shuttle and got off occasionally to hike some of the trails. All were well marked with difficulty as stated in the literature.

I walked this the canyon twice:one day in the morning by myself,and with my husband later on an another day. I recommend starting from the Temple of Sinawava and walk toward the junction. On the way you can take a break and admire all marked point of interests . (Though all your way is a LANDMARK itself) Strongly recommend starting... More

It's only for people who want to spend the entire day waiting in traffic or waiting in line for a bus. It can take nearly an hour to get through the entrance. After that you will be unable to find parking anywhere at the visitor center or along the few stop on the road. It is well over 100 degrees... More

Very beautiful park but definitely to small and unable to accommodate the amount of visitors. Not sure anything can be done to improve this so maybe try visiting during the off seasons
