    11 Best Hikes in Zion National Park

    Hiking in America’s national parks is almost guaranteed to be a notch above any standard hike. The country’s most beautiful swaths of land were protected for a reason, and Zion National Park in Utah is no different.


    The park in southwest Utah is probably best known for the road that winds through Zion Canyon’s steep red cliff walls, but the scenic drive is only the gateway to some of the park’s many hiking trails and stunning sites.


    The best way to truly see the park is on foot. Hiking allows you to get up close to petroglyphs and inside narrow slot canyons. You can experience the vibrant Emerald Pools, which have waterfalls and a hanging garden, or The Narrows gorge hike. Just keep in mind that while the park is open year round, you should always check the current conditions for trail closures.


    Here are 11 of the best hikes in Zion National Park.
