Zion National Park in Utah is a popular destination in the Southwestern United states with beautiful views. It was the first national park in Utah and the best way to experience it is hiking among the high cliffs and through the narrow canyons. It is home to some very unique hikes, such as the Narrows where you walk for miles up a river with sheer canyon walls on either side of you, or hike the Angels Landing Trail with 21 switchbacks to the top for a great lookout. This geologically unique area has colorful sandstone canyons, high plateaus, and rock towers. Natural arches and exposed formations of the Colorado Plateau make up a large wilderness of diverse ecosystems. Route 9, which traverses the park from east to west, is open year-round to private vehicles. Be prepared for hazardous driving conditions during and immediately following storms. Icy spots remain through the winter.

Nice, easy hike. Very busy, but crowds can be avoided during the week. Most people won't adventure to the top so it gets less busy as you hike further.

Amazing and thrilling high-energy hike. Moderately strenuous for some, but only to make up for it with a breathtaking panoramic view of the valley and the way the Virgin River flows through it.

We had a great Day! Definitely coming back next summer

Nice find on a hot 108 degree day at a locals suggestion. Easiest route includes a brief swim through a cool mountain pool.

After long switchbacks to a brief flat stretch then short switchbacks the real adventure begins. The .5 mile stretch of Angels landing was an hour of extreme fear at the start overtaken by endorphins from exertion to pure joy at the accomplishment of it all.

Hot and out uphill back downhill first 2 Miles nicer than last two great view at the summit

I live nearby and wish dog friendly would be taken off. DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THIS TRAIL.

It is the city's water supply. Please be considerate and use the bathroom at the beginning of the trail.

It was an awesome hike. Worth every minute of the hike. Water falls were beautiful. Water is cool and fun to walk in.

Awesome view. It's a really cool hike, definitely recommend if you want a quick experience of Zion

Amazing hike!!! Great views, not too steep, but still a good workout! There were tons of Western Bighorn Sheep when I went, and they were extremely friendly and fascinating! I recommend this hike to anyone in Zion looking for a jaw dropping view.

Great hike, BUT depending on when you it could be pretty crowded.

Mentally and physically challenging hike. Plenty of route finding and crossing the stream. Entirely worth the reward of reaching the Subway at the end. Maybe my most memorable hike ever with my wife.

Views are incredible. Completed this hike in extremely warm temperatures. In the future I would probably plan to hike this in a cooler season. Look forward to more from this park in the future.
