Zion National Park

Stretching for 15 miles (24 km) and carved over time by the Virgin River, Zion National Park is a natural gem with a huge array of enormous white, pink and red rocks. Set in true canyon country, the national park features plateaus of towers, mesas and sandstone that comes alive with colorful wildflowers in spring. In addition, travelers to the Utah park will find varied landscapes of woodlands, conifer forests and desert, plus equally varied wildlife including mule deer, collared lizards, jackrabbits and wheeling condors.

Zion National Park has hiking trails for every energy level, including the dramatic Narrows journey along the gorges lining the Virgin River. The Riverside Walk is a more gentle paved trail that follows the river’s course along the bottom of the narrow canyon. Adrenaline-charged canyoneering is another popular activity, along with rock climbing, horseback riding, photography and just soaking in the canyon views. Prime viewpoints include Angel’s Landing and Observation Point, while the paved trail to the Lower Emerald Pools takes travelers past trickling waterfalls and ponds.

Like Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion's rocky canyons form part of the Grand Staircase stretching from the Grand Canyon. Over the centuries, the fast-flowing Virgin River carved narrow canyons through the Navajo sandstone, revealing the rocks' colorful stratification. Particularly photogenic features are Zion's freestanding arches and bridges of stone, formed by erosion and appearing impossibly fragile and surreal.

Practical Info

Interstate 15 passes Zion, connecting with State Routes 9 and 17 leading to the park. Highway 9, the Zion–Mt Carmel Highway, runs into the park from Springdale at the park entrance. Visitors centers are located near the south entrance and in the Kolob Canyons stretch of the park. Late spring and fall are the best times to visit, as the park can get quite busy in the height of summer. Inside the park, the six-mile (9.5-km) drive to the canyon is closed to vehicles from April to October; take the free shuttle bus instead.
