Zion National Park is a nature preserve in southwest Utah known for its steep red cliffs of Zion Canyon. The key section of Zion Canyon Scenic Drive leads to forest trails along the Virgin River. The Emerald Pools, which have waterfalls and a hanging garden, are fed by the river. The Zion Narrows wading hike is also along the shore, partially through deep chasms.
The incredible hiking trails in Zion are well-known. Take an exciting scramble up to Angels Landing, a soothing walk to Weeping Rock, or a family hike on the Emerald Pools Trails, to name a few. Find out more about hiking in Zion National Park.
Zion National Park, with over 300 days of sunshine a year, is a wonderful place to enjoy blue skies, fresh air, and a little extra Vitamin D during the winter months. Plan a winter visit to soak up the sun while enjoying mild temperatures and a dazzling kaleidoscope of reds, oranges, and pinks in the sandstone. Hiking, painting, and looking up at the wonders of the night sky are only a few of the activities available to winter tourists.
