Zion is a perfect park for hiking. The weather is generally great and the there are trails to suit everyone, even one pretty one that is wheel chair accessible. Of course, this being steep canyon country, the hikes that afford the best views are strenuous. There is no easy way to get up those sheer walls so do some training prior to coming to the park to ensure your own enjoyment.

Equipment: Being physically fit is the most important thing you can do but you also need sturdy hiking shoes. This is no place for flip flops despite it being warm. Good socks are something people short change themselves on but after using a good pair, you'll never look back. Treat your feet, they deserve it. It's always good to be prepared for the worst, so bring a jacket, hat, and rain coat just in case. Don't forget the sunscreen.
