Zion National Park


The basics

While the Grand Canyon may be the most famous natural wonder of the American Southwest, Zion Canyon is a gem all on its own. Opt to see the highlights on a guided Zion National Park tour from Las Vegas or on a multi-canyon getaway that combines a trip to Zion with visits to Bryce Canyon National Park, Monument Valley, and/or the Grand Canyon. Independent travelers can also join limited free programs offered by National Park Service rangers.

Best Zion National Park hikes

While there are over a dozen major hiking trails in the park, a few stand out. The Zion Narrows Gorge allows hikers to walk through the Virgin River between two towering rock walls. Many hikers start at the Temple of Sinawava via the Riverside Walk and then hike upstream before doubling back. 

Another favorite is Angels Landing, an intense 5-mile (8-kilometer) trail that rewards brave hikers with sweeping views of Zion. Emerald Pools Trail serves as a great place to hike alongside multiple waterfalls and glistening pools.
