Activities in Zion National Park
Situated in one of Utah’s most breathtaking areas, Zion National Park is on a must-see list for national park aficionados. Its soaring sandstone walls, incredible rock formations and many miles of hiking trails constantly reveal new perspectives of this red rock wonderland. The Narrows, Angels Landing, and Emerald Pools are just a few of the 200 miles of picturesque trails in Zion National Park. Other exciting activities at Zion include climbing and horseback riding.
During the summer, park rangers offer complimentary short talks at the museum as well as evening programs in the campground amphitheater and Zion Lodge. Program schedules are posted at the visitor center and on bulletin boards throughout the park. For more information regarding park programs and activities visit the National Park Web site.
