Zion National Park

Search Springdale Utah

This national park features some of the most beautiful and most varied scenery in the state. The desert terrain and massive sculptured rock formations offer striking contrasts to waterfalls and hanging gardens. Kolob Arch, in the northwest section of the park, is one of the largest, free-standing arches in the world, accessible by a 7-mile trail. About 65 miles of park trails are open all year, trails on canyon rims close due to ice and snow. Guided walks and half-day horseback trips are available. Parking is available at the south end of Zion Lodge; a shuttle to Zion Canyon can be boarded there as well. The Zion Canyon area begins just north of the southern park entrance, the narrowest point accessible by car at the Temple of Sinawa, about 8 miles from the park entrance. The park and main roads are open all year. Two visitor centers are located within the park, one at the Kolob Canyon entrance and the Zion Canyon Visitor Center located a mile from the south entrance.
