Hiking in Zion National Park
Hiking in Zion National Park is probably one of the most rewarding experiences you could ever have in life. The wide array of trails available for all ages and ability levels makes it even better. Many of the park’s more popular trails are accessed from the valley floor along the 6 mile Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. During the months of April-October this area is closed to private vehicles and accessed by the fabulous and FREE Zion Canyon Shuttle System, during the remaining months you can drive your own vehicle to the trailhead parking areas. More information about the shuttle system can be found at the official Zion National Park Home Page link listed below. For some of the more remote trail heads such as the Zion Narrows, West Rim Trail, and The Subway the Zion Adventure Company located just a short walk down the street is ready to handle all of your outfitting and trail shuttle needs.
We are continually asked “How long should we stay to see the park?” This is obviously dependent on a lot of other factors about your vacation itinerary but we would have to say that to get a satisfying and relaxing experience that 3 days is great, if you can stay longer all the better, and if you just don’t have more than a day or two we can help you make the most of your time. Remember it is so much better to see a few less things and take your time to relax and enjoy the things you do have time for!
