Zion National Park
Within the 229-square miles of Zion National Park, you'll find high plateaus, a maze of narrow, deep, sandstone canyons, and the Virgin River and its tributaries. Zion also has 2,000-foot Navajo Sandstone cliffs, pine- and juniper-clad slopes, and seeps, springs, and waterfalls supporting colorful and lush hanging gardens. Follow the paths where ancient native people and pioneers walked. Gaze up at massive sandstone cliffs of cream, red, and pink that soar into a brilliant blue sky. Zion's unique array of plants, animals, and geology will enchant you as you absorb the rich history of the past and enjoy the excitement of present day adventures.

Zion National Park's 2,000-foot sandstone cliffs are world-renowned for their big wall climbs. Due to their difficulty, most routes in the park are not recommended for inexperienced climbers, but there are few top roping and sport climbing areas. Or for those looking for another type of adventure, explore the wilderness and solitude of Kolob Canyons or hike the Narrows or the Subway to experience the beauty of Zion. Also, be sure to check out the park's website for a list of things to do.
