TOP 3 SCENIC HIKES IN ZION NATIONAL PARK
BY TERRA NELSON
Pro tip for hiking in Zion with the least amount of crowds: Get on the first shuttle! If the shuttle leaves at 6:15AM be there at 5:45AM.
OUR FAVORITE HIKES!
The Narrows Distance: 3-8 miles
Canyon Overlook Trail Distance: 1 Mile
Angels Landing Distance: 5 Miles
This is what you will be walking in the whole time! I have a full packing list for JUST this hike on the blog. It was our FAVORITE.
The sheer size of the canyon is enough to make you stop every ten feet with jaws dropped. Notice how the water gets deeper here.
CANYON OVERLOOK TRAIL
While not in the park, it's close and the road to it is scenic! The trail is only a mile, although there are drop offs and narrow paths along the mountain.
This guy came out from under a rock while we were on the trail! It was amazing seeing one in real life.
Of course I have to include Angels Landing in this guide! When we went, you did not have to have a permit to go up the chains.
