“What a view”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

The drive through the park was absolutely breathtaking. On the main road you gain about 2000 ft ,which, is beautiful. The roads are well maintained and there are several pull offs to use as needed. After the 2000 ft elevation raise you will drive through a tunnel in the mountain side. Turn your lights on!! This tunnel goes on for about a half a mile and the other side is equally breathtaking. This was one of the best scenic drives i have ever taken. A must for nature lovers

“Zion Canyon”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Flew to Vegas, rented a 19 foot rv, drove 3.5 hours to Zion and could not believe our experience. It was incredible. Hot in the sunlight during the day, cool in the shade, and 40 degrees at night. Had a reservation at the campground in Zion and could have stayed many more days exploring all the hiking trails. Thereafter we drove to Bryce. Were we even on the planet Earth? What an amazing trip.

“One of Best National Parks in the USA”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

My wife and I recently visited this national park. It was AMAZING! We walked the many trails in the park and were spellbound with every turn on our hikes. The beauty was incredible. The fall leaves looked lovely against the Virgin River and the canyon. The park was alive with wildlife! We saw many deer and wild turkeys near the lodge and on our walks.This was an outstanding park to visit for families and couples alike. The beauty is AWESOME! My wife and I agree that this is one of the Best national parks for its sheer beauty. It is a gem among the national parks. I would encourage you to stay at the Zion Lodge or close to the park so that you can truely enjoy this gem.

“Zion - I must get back there”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

On a recent trip out west I worked in a day at Zion. There is no place on earth that I want to revisit (and spend more time) more than Zion. It appears to have the best day hiking in the world. If anyone has other suggestions for great places to day hike please let me know.

“Zion National Park has incredible views and you leave the driving to them.”
Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

This NP is a jewel in our crown. The rock formations are gorgeous and this NP made sure we'd see them with no fender benders. You park your car in lot and an on/off shuttles travel the park continously.one may hop off for a hike and catch later bus
We were there is summer and it was jjammed with foreign tourists enjoying the shimmer of changing leaves. Since I am disabled & use a rollator the driver listed it on and off. BTW handicapped get all Access free pass to all NP-your disabled car plates verify your qualify. The park has great gift shops hotels. We brought our own lunch. On leaving we realized we had to double back thru the park and drive up the steep road to make our way to Bryce and Arches NP. What a thrill. The lnformative guide told us Mormons first tried to settle here farming by the river but spring thaw flooded them out. We will go again -
