Zion National Park and Kolob Canyon
Zion National Park is home to “The Narrows” and “Angels Landing,” two very popular hikes in the United States. The park has miles of trails, slot canyons, and unbelievable views. It’s one of America’s most popular national parks.
Overlooks and trails abound along scenic drives through Zion, and there are ranger programs at most developed areas year round. Zion provides wonderful opportunities for:
- Hiking – Zion offers many trails ranging from short “leg-stretcher” walks to the strenuous adventures.
- Wildflowers & Fall Colors – The variety of mountain and canyon environments makes Zion an excellent location for wildflower walks in the spring and summer and brilliant leaf color in the autumn.
- Photography – Zion offers the photographer many opportunities to explore color, texture, and light.
- Bird watching – Zion is home to 271 species of birds. A bird checklist can be obtained at the visitor centers.
- Bicycling – The Pa’rus Trail offers a paved, car-free alternative for bicyclists, pedestrians, and people with strollers or wheelchairs to visit lower Zion Canyon and access the Scenic Drive.
- Ranger-led activities – During the summer, join a Park Ranger to learn more about Zion National Park. Topics include geology, plants, animals, human history and other features. Programs include guided walks, short talks at the visitor centers and evening programs at the campground amphitheaters and Zion Lodge. All programs are free. Check the weekly schedules posted at visitor centers and bulletin boards throughout the park for times, places, and subjects.
