Seeing the Park

There are two main routes through Zion National Park: Utah Highway 9 or the Zion - Mount Carmel Highway; and the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. There are several stops along Highway 9 starting with Checkerboard Mesa (if coming from the east) and the Visitor's Center (if coming from the West). Going is slow and traffic can be heavy. You want to take your time anyway and admire the scenery. The Zion Canyon Scenic Drive can only be accessed by the Zion Shuttle System from April 1 to October 31. The shuttle runs often and is convenient anyway.

Hiking Trails

There are a number of trails inside the park ranging from easy .4 mile trails to a strenuous 14 mile hike.

Wildlife

There is a variety of wildlife in the park. This young Bighorn sheep came right down the road then climbed up the rocks.

    I need to explore the Archeology Trail to the caves. Thanks for the tips. I, too, love exploring American Indian historical sites.
