Short hike to a Beautiful view.

This was a short hike and had some narrow places but well worth the hike. The views were great and we all enjoyed it!

Zion national Park is an exceptional spot for a fall vacation. Having only been in the extremely hot summertime, we finally made it in fall. The colors of turning leaves are beautiful and the temperatures are wonderful.

Because of the tall mountains and deep valleys, it's hard to grasp the magnitude and wonder of the park. The shuttle bus is great, and mandatory most of the year. My advice is to take if from the park entrance and go to the end - no stops along the way. At the terminus, get out and there are many... More

This is one of the many beautiful National Parks in Utah, and perhaps the crown jewel of them all. I thought it was one of the most beautiful parks I have been to in all 50 states. The park is basically divided into four large areas: Kolob Canyons and the accompanying visitors center just off I-15 in the northwest corner... More

Zion's main canyon is really a must see. You take the free shuttle bus through the canyon. There are nine bus stops in the canyon. I must have taken a thousand photos!! We then went to lunch and then came back later in the afternoon for more photos with the sun in the west. There are many hiking trails from... More

Just visited the park with my family, end of October. We had only few hours time to spend there. Drive up and down the canyon in our car was great to have an idea how beautiful this place is, plus we saw some wild life on our way, like goats and a deer. Then we took a shuttle and stopped... More

Zion, despite it's modest size, is now (according to a recent National Geographic article) the 6th most visited park in the entire system. And the breathtaking canyon is the epicenter of the traffic. Two suggestions...arriving early in the morning will ensure you get a precious parking space at the Visitor Center and minimize the wait for the incomparably efficient shuttle... More

The word awesome is so misused now that it good to use it in its correct meaning. We spent a day here at the end of September and the sheer beauty of the place could move you to tears. We parked just outside the park and used the shuttles both to get to the park and to ride up and... More
