Zion Canyon is the park's most dramatic section. The canyon is reached via the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive, an in-and-out road flanked by cliff walls on both sides.
The hikes in Zion National Park range from a mile to multi-day treks. Angels Landing and The Narrows are two popular hikes in the park.
Weeping Rock is a popular stop on the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. Close-up view of the hanging gardens on the otherwise sheer cliff wall.
To enjoy this park's Riverside Walk, you don't have to walk the entire 2.2-mile trail.
Lower Emerald Pools has a weeping wall and pools at the base, like Weeping Rock.
This white mesa is the first stop after entering the park via the East Entrance.
From March to October, horseback tours along the Virgin River take guests through one of the park's most beautiful areas.
It's easy to see why canyoneering is a popular activity in Zion. Courses, equipment rentals, and general information on canyoneering are available in nearby Springdale.
Spending the night under the stars in Zion National Park is an adventure worth taking.
