Just tooooo many people.... We felt as though we were visiting with hundreds of our non friends... Other parks were more spectacular.

Te park shuttles will take you everywhere. The visitors center and the human history museum with a short film are a must-see.

The climb is a bit more effort than it says in the visitor center. It's not hard but there are a few places that asks more of you than a walk in the park. The view is really good and worth the climb. The park...More

From the waters of the Virgin River to the towering buttes, the main canyon of Zion National Park is a stupendous site to behold. During the busiest times of the year a free shuttle runs from the visitor center to a number of key points...More

We had so much fun in Zion. They are trying to keep the cars down by offering free bus rides to various stops in the park. Th bus comes every few minutes so the wait is never long. They have a recording running about park...More

If you have a more powerful word than majestic, apply it now. We did all the trails in the south park except observation point and found each one to have its own beauty. For jaw-dropping thrills and views, Angels Landing will fulfill your needs but...More

We took the shuttle and got off occasionally to hike some of the trails. All were well marked with difficulty as stated in the literature.

It's only for people who want to spend the entire day waiting in traffic or waiting in line for a bus. It can take nearly an hour to get through the entrance. After that you will be unable to find parking anywhere at the visitor...More

Very beautiful park but definitely to small and unable to accommodate the amount of visitors. Not sure anything can be done to improve this so maybe try visiting during the off seasons

How crowded is Zion and Bryce at the end of April generally? Is that a good time of year to drive your own vehicle through the park? Can you tell me about how much time to allow if we would wand to do the riverwalk to the narrows and hike the narrows a bit (not sure how difficult that is) We are active 60 yr.olds but I have some breathing issues that may limit me. We would also like to see the Emerald pools, weeping rock and the Kayenta falls. I'm not sure if all these points can be seen from view points by car or bus and how many involve hiking. Trying to judge time needed to see these items. Would also like to know how difficult the Angels landing hike is and roughly the amount of time needed. thank you

I am not sure how busy the park will be in April, as we were there in the fall after school had started. I would think in April, the weekdays would be less busy than the weekends. According to the website, the shuttles in... More

How long does it take to drive from Las Vegas to Zion? We would have to drive back the same day so would it be worth it for one day? Thank you!

Depends on what you want. If you are a casual observer..one day. If you are a hiker and want to see the vast array of nature..at least a week.
