Zion National Park is home to many incredible hikes, each offering unique experiences and stunning views. Here are some of the best hikes in Zion National Park:

  1. Angels Landing - This iconic hike is not for the faint of heart, as it involves a steep and narrow trail with steep drop-offs. The views from the top are breathtaking and well worth the effort.
  2. The Narrows - This hike is unique in that it takes you through a narrow slot canyon that is sometimes only 20 feet wide. You’ll be walking in water for much of the hike, so be sure to wear appropriate footwear.
  3. Observation Point - This hike offers incredible views of Zion Canyon and is less crowded than some of the other popular hikes in the park. The trail is steep but well-maintained.
  4. Emerald Pools - This is a relatively easy hike that takes you to a series of three pools fed by a waterfall. The pools are a beautiful emerald color and offer a refreshing break from the desert heat.
  5. The Subway - This hike is a bit more challenging, but it takes you through a unique tunnel-like formation that resembles a subway. You’ll need a permit to do this hike, and it’s recommended that you have some canyoneering experience.

These are just a few of the best hikes in Zion National Park. Be sure to check trail conditions and prepare accordingly before heading out on any hike in the park.
