Zion National Park Overview

The Virgin River has gnawed through native sandstone to create the incredible scenery found in Zion Canyon. The river itself now serves as a natural corridor for exploring the park. There are several easy, self-guiding trails along the river, along with more challenging hikes where the river and its tributaries cut through narrow canyons. For those with strollers or in wheelchairs, the Riverside Walk (Gateway to the Narrows) is suitable for all ages. More adventurous or strenuous hikes include Angels Landing and The Narrows. No matter what type of hike you are looking for you are sure to find it at Zion National Park.
