Main canyon is a backbone of the national park, main transportation route leads through it. For those on a very tight schedule, it may be the only part to see. All other major attractions start from here.

We enjoyed using the shuttle service; made it more tourist friendly. My wife liked the hiking, whereas I didn't.

This was a very excellent experience. The scenery in Zion is spectacular. The shuttle bus system is very well thought out and I can't imagine see Zion any other way.

It's as beautiful as everybody says. And unlike hiking in the Appalachians, which I've done all my life, you don't have to reach the peak of a hike for a payoff. Literally 90% of any hike you do is a payoff point. --- But travelers...More

Amazing place and SO beautiful but, you will be sharing it with hordes of other tourist. If you find a secluded trail (maybe in the eastern section?) you may find the serenity you seek grasshopper.
