It was so nice that the only cars in the canyon were people staying at the lodge. Otherwise it was just us and the shuttle buses. The buses run every few minutes dropping passengers off at nine different locations where you can just enjoy the...More
We experienced this park in two different ways: we drove through from east to west, and returned the following day to take the shuttle bus up from the Visitors’ Center. The shuttles were so efficient, and all the staff did their job so well. Zion...More
We took an Insight Tour of western National Parks. Zion was one of our favorites. It is quite different from Yellowstone and Bryce - but we were very glad we came here.
The main canyon is spectacular beyond words. There are many, many ways to...More

Ride the bus all the way up.... and then stop at each point exploring it, on the way down. Depending on your hiking abilities you can walk to the more remote areas but the trails quickly become steep and difficult. Most of the easy trails...More
In All fairness my husband and I were in the middle of a long trip west. We took in a number of National Parks prior to Zion. Zion was my least favorite out of them all. Yes it has its beauty, but I would have...More
My father took me to Zion Canyon and so I had to take my son there on trip out West.
It is amazing place to take a hike (which we did along the Virgin River) to view the geology (in contrast to Grand Canyon, at...More
My wife and I had only half a day at Zion, and we worried that we wouldn't even get through the entrance before we had to leave. Not so! Here are some relatively obvious pointers if you only have a few hours:
1. Wait until...More
This is a beautiful national park! Make sure you arrive early, because the line to enter the bus is pretty large in the peak season. I arrived at 7:45 (park opens at 8) and had to wait probably 30-40 minutes to enter a bus. The...More
We arrived at South entrance of Zion after one hour drive from St George. The $35 entry fee for private vehicles was waived with one National Park Pass. There was still parking at 8:15am on a July Sunday in the large Visitor's Center parking lot....More

Oooh, good question! When we drove in, we came from the same direction. As far as I can recall, there were not any, it was pretty flat. He should not have anything to worry about. There is a canyon rim drive around the edge of Zion that you may want to avoid though. As long as he stays along the floor of the canyon, he should be OK.

l agree with the first answer. I visited both areas and they are both beautiful. The first area was a breathtaking scenic drive. The main canyon is where lodging, camping, park transportation(bus) and restaurants are located. There's also many hiking trails from easy to strenuous depending on your physical ability and time. Bottom line is that Zions Main Canyon is a major part of Zion National Park. I spent several days exploring in Zions Main Canyon.
