The best time to visit Zion National Park is the Spring.  The warm weather of the high desert is pleasant in the spring, not to mention wildflowers are only in bloom at that time of year. Zions has so many activities to keep you busy – hiking, biking, camping, climbing, or even just meeting the local wild turkeys. It’s home to one of the most intimidating hiking trails I’ve ever heard of: The Narrows. It’s basically a hike through a river cut gorge, and much of the hike is spent wading, swimming or scrambling over boulders. I’ve never tried it, but it’s on my bucket list.

In the summers, Zion National Park runs a shuttle system to accomodate its many guests. With close access to Springdale and St. George, the park is a great place to visit for a day or a whole week.
