Zion National Park

About This Area

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

In a state filled with incredible National Parks, Zion still stands out as one of the most beautiful for so many reasons. While it’s known for epics like Angel’s Landing, the Subway and the Narrows, there are also a number of little kid friendly options.

What your family will love about this park is the incredible wildlife just meandering through fields and across trails. Deer casually sauntering through the grassy fields and forests, mountain goats climbing sheer faces, eagles soaring and tiny frogs singing a chorus through the canyons. This is one epic park.

It can get crowded, so pay attention to holidays and the early bird definitely gets the worm when it comes to getting on shuttles quickly.

Fee Notes

An annual National Park Pass is $80 or you can pay a per car fee. The walk in or ride in fee is also high, so it’s worth buying a pass.

Trail Area Highlights

Excellent wildlife and views for days. This is a great place to get your heart racing if you want to scale rock walls and hang from chains. We wouldn’t advise these trails with kids though.
