ZION from Vegas

We will arrive in ZION around 2pm on Tuesday. We are staying at the Ferber Resort and our check out is Thursday at 11am.

We know its a short time so any tips to maximize would be helpful. Like, what is the coolest thing to see or do. DW, My son (16th birthday) and myself and our 2 bosses ginger bread and boston

I will add that this is just one stop of our 5700 mile summer vacation. Other stops are Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Vegas and after ZION a full day boat ride down the Colorado River.

My kids still talk about the Hidden Canyon, they loved the hike to it and then the hike all the way to the back of it. Zion is one of the best national parks to visit. Have fun.

One of our favorite things at Zion is to hike (more of a walk) the Weeping Rock trail. My late mom made it back in 2003. In Springdale, be sure to stop in at the Bumbleberry Inn restaurant for breakfast.

Zion is for hiking, no question. Is your 16 year old adventurous and a competent hiker? If no one has a fear of heights or balance issues, do the Angel's Landing hike. (However note that just the though of it sends my stomach into somersaults!) You can go through some of the slot canyons of there isn't any rain on the way. Make sure you check with the Rangers. If it gets too hot, take the drive up to the top of the mesa. There is a lot of hiking there too.

Note there are no dogs allowed on the trails or pretty much anywhere else - standard National Park policy.

We were at Zion about a week ago. We don't hike so we missed out on much of the beauty of the park. There is a shuttle that takes you up into the park area and you can or may see people climbing the face of some of the rocks. You can get off the shuttle and take any of the trails or just stay on it for the round trip. The visitor area parking fills early but you can park outside the park and a park shuttle will take you to the visitor center where you get on the free shuttle buses. It has great scenery but does not compare to Bryce, at least to us it doesn't.

I am at Zion now. I am staying at Bauer's Canyon Ranch in Glendale, UT. The road in from the east side is awesome. Not exactly RV friendly. I was white knuckles driving my toad. Beautiful scenery, at least that is what my wife said.

Zion is awesome! Don't bypass it.

We have had to cancel zion this year because there were no sites in any of the parks we tried.
We will pass by there next summer on our way to Alaska. We will take this info with us and im sure another reader will search and find this helpful.
We are going to spend the time in MOAB.
