Zion's Main Canyon, Zion National Park

4.7
#3 of 16 in Nature in Zion National Park
Zion's Main Canyon serves as the mighty centerpiece of the Zion National Park. You can explore the 24 km (15 mi) long and 800 m (0.5 mi) deep canyon via one of its seven trails. The Weeping Rock trail is an easy half hour round-trip, making it suitable for the whole family. Experienced hikers might want to try the Angels Landing trail; the four-hour loop features impressive views but is not recommended for those with a fear of heights. The canyon is also home to a number of amenities and attractions, including a visitor center, a human history museum, and lodge. Take a look at our Zion National Park trip planning website to schedule your visit to Zion's Main Canyon and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • I wouldn't compare this park to the Grand Canyon or Brahms. Each of them is good and beautiful in its own way. The mountains in the park of zion reminded me of the raging sea. Very beautiful and unusual. I wish I'd been there quite a bit, literally by passing through. I really want to walk on the trails.
