Zion National Park

One park amid the impressive collection of National Parks and National Monuments in southern Utah shines above all others. This National Treasure is Zion National Park, where abundant beauty stops visitors in their tracks and leaving them gaping in awe. The crushing violence of Mother Nature has created perfection in the heart of Utah's Color Country, where years of raging storms have pit water and winter's ice and snow against rock, producing wondrous creations which are now protected by the National Park Service and kept pristine for all the world to enjoy. Zion National Park is an all season park and without a doubt, the crowning glory of Utah.

"Spectacular" is uttered time and time again as eyes raise to view the statuesque monoliths of Utah's most visited National Park. Zion National Park unveils its eight layers of sandstone, displaying what has taken two-hundred-million years to carve and mold. This extraordinary corner of Utah is a masterpiece of towering cliffs, deep red canyons, mesas, buttes and massive monoliths. Zion's fame is due to more than it's lofty peaks. It can boast of its geology, hiking, backpacking and some of the best scenic drives anywhere.

Angels Landing

This is one of the most famous, well-known, and thrilling hikes in the entire national park system. The trail climbs 2300 ft in elevation over its 3 mile length, starting at a leisurely, level slope next to the virgin river and culminating on a rock ridge requiring a firm grip on the assistive chains. It's not a walk in the park - but the view is worth every bit of effort!

This trail has a well-deserved reputation of being a family friendly, leisurely hike that introduces you to some of the beauty of Zion that requires just a bit of work to get to. It is one of the most popular trails in zion (and therefore one of the busiest!), but the green vegetation and ample water makes it a must-see.
