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.
