Scenic Canyon

It's better to stay in the park lodge so you can enjoy the beauty of the canyon from morning to evening.

This is a different view of a canyon as you are at the bottom looking up. You have to ride a park service bus, but you can get off at any of 9 stops and hike to the next.

I've been coming back to Zion since the family repeatedly came here 40-50 years ago. It's definitely worth spending a day just seeing many of the sights along the shuttle bus route and then spending more days exploring other sites.

This is a must see park if you are in SW Utah. The beauty and photo ops alone are worth any effort you might have to make to get here. The hiking possibilities are endless.

We spent three days visiting Zion National Park. The visitor center offers all current information on hikes and programs. We arrived early to beat the crowds and thoroughly enjoyed using the shuttle system and found things to do all day.

Zion Canyon is one of my favorites as far as American national parks go. The road leading into the canyon is spectacular and full of incredible views and you haven't even enter the canyon itself. I love it that they don't allow cars in the main canyon because this makes it a lot more peaceful. There are many hikes you... More

Gorgeous park but be prepared for lines of cars travelling through it on the main road. There are two side roads much less traveled and also very pretty! Kolob Canyons Road is about 5 miles long accessed via I-15 farther north of the turn off for Zion. It is well worth the extra drive. Gorgeous view points and scenery and... More

We had no problem parking as the free shuttle had a stop right in front of our hotel in Springdale. The fleet seemed big enough as every 10 minutes or less a bus arrived to take us around to any point in the park and back to town. The canyon was just stunning. Giant colorful (red, orange, pink, cream, yellow)... More

My favorite National Park! So majestic and just so beautiful. I am so glad we could make this trip! Took the tram to see all the sights but easy walking trails were right by our lodge!

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.
