Zion National Park

Distance:         35.0 miles

Time:                45 min

The entrance to Zions is on the far side of Springdale, Utah.  It is distinguished by steep red cliffs.  Wildlife is ever present in the park and includes wild turkeys and mule deer.  Flowing through the park is the Virgin River that provides one of the most interesting hikes up through its narrow canyon.  During the summer, access to the park is only available by the park’s free shuttle buses.  Get to the park early if you want to park near the bus terminal—Zions is the third most visited national park with over 4 million visitors a year.  Another option is to park in Springdale and use the free city shuttles to the national park bus terminal.  There is a lodge inside the park and numerous lodging and dining opportunities in Springdale.  Angels Landing is one of the most popular destinations in the park.  This is a strenuous hike, but breath taking.  Reservations are required for the hike available on the park’s website.
