Trip Advisor ranks Zion National Park #1

Friday, July 17th, 2009

A recent survey conducted by Trip Advisor, the world’s most most popular and largest online travel community,  revealed that Zion National Park is considered to be the #1 national park in the united states.   The survey of 3,000 respondents showed Zion (#1) ahead of the Grand Canyon (#2) in the top-ten list.

One traveler made these comments about Zion National Park:  “The stunning red monoliths and canyons of the park invite visitors to explore its beauty by camping, biking, touring by car, hiking, and more. Adventurous travelers can embark on the exciting Angel’s Landing hike and the views make the daring climb well worth it. It’s the best view in the entire park, and best hike I have ever done! Do not miss it!”

From our 4,000 acre ranch that borders Zion National Park you can see portions of the canyons that make up this spectacular destination.   The exciting thing for visitors to Zion Ponderosa is that our location on the east-side of Zion brings you closer for day-trips to Bryce Canyon National Park (75 minutes), the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument (25 minutes), the Grand Canyon North Rim (2 hours) and even Lake Powell (110 minutes).
