Zion is beautiful but crowded. You now have to take a bus into the park instead of your own car. You park at a welcome center type of place and take buses into the attractions. I understand the need but to me it takes away from the experience.

If you want peace/solitude/nature, take the drive up Interstate 15 to the Kolob Canyon section of the park. There is about a 10-15 mile twisty road up into this section but the beauty/peace and great hiking opportunities make it well worthwhile.

This was our first visit to Zion National Park ... We stayed in Hurricane, Utah and drove to Zion in the early morning . The drive in was spectacular.. The park even more amazing . We were there over the Labor Day weekend , so we parked outside the park & took the shuttle bus in. That worked perfect .
This park is fantastic ...don't miss it!

First, the scenery is so beautiful you could spend weeks here and not see it all. You cannot drive in the Park (a good decision to save what is there for future visitors) but the shuttle system is totally thought out. There are covered shuttle stops all along the route and the buses run so frequently you can jump out to take pictures at any point and jump on another shuttle in just a few minutes. Many of the shuttle stops have bathroom facilities. The Park has coordinated with the city of Springdale so you never have to drive from the day you arrive until the day you leave. All the stops are wheelchair accessible and the drivers are very courteous. This is our sixth or seventh National Park and by far our favorite.

This park is so beautiful. We could only drive so far ourselves. You had to ride on a bus to see the entire park but we loved what we saw.

A great resource. You could easily spend an entire two weeks in Utah & still not see a fraction of its natural wonders.
