What to do
There’s so much to do in Zion that it’s almost impossible to do it all. Our guide breaks your options down into two simple sections: family friendly activities and more strenuous ventures.
If you’re planning a family trip to Zion, there are plenty of options for visitors with young kids or the less experienced hikers. Family friendly hikes include the Emerald Pools Trail, the Pa’rus Trail, and the Canyon Overlook Trail, and we even give you some special insider tips such as when and where to see the best sunsets on your trip. The guide has a couple other suggestions for family adventures, such as the Zion-Mount Carmel Tunnel, shows at the Tanner Amphitheater, and a secret ghost town just outside the park.
For the experienced hikers and those looking for something a bit daring, we have included a whole section of more strenuous activities in Zion. Climb to the top of Angels Landing or Observation Point, trek through the water of the Narrows, or rappel into the Subway. This guide is where you’ll find everything you need to know to stay safe and be prepared, along with a few exclusive clues for your journey, like when to see the best waterfalls in the Narrows.
