Welcome to Zion National Park


Most of the park's 4.5 million annual visitors enter along Zion Canyon floor. Even challenging hikes become congested between May and September (shuttle required). Yet, there are other options. Up-country, on the mesa tops (7000ft), it's easy to escape the crowds – and the heat. And the Kolob Canyons section, 40 miles northwest by car, sees one-tenth of the visitors year-round.
