Here Are The 10 Best Hikes In Utah’s Zion National Park

The best way to explore Zion National Park is by hiking one of its many trails. You’ll find hikes appropriate for people of all ages and abilities, from ADA-accessible hikes to strenuous hikes that require technical skills such as rappelling and bouldering. Here’s a list of our favorite hikes in the park.

Though Zion might be crowded with people in some areas, it’s important to remember that you’re in the wilderness when you’re hiking. The park is vast, and it’s important to be adequately prepared before taking off down the trail. Make sure you have plenty of water, a light jacket and sunscreen. Hike with a friend or group; if you’re planning a solitary hike tell someone where you’re going and when you expect to return. Most importantly, don’t take on a hiking trail that’s beyond your fitness level. Most deaths at Zion National Park occur from heart attack or heat stroke.
