Zion's Main Canyon, Zion National Park
(4.8/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Zion's Main Canyon serves as the mighty centerpiece of the Zion National Park. You can explore the 24 km (15 mi) long and 800 m (0.5 mi) deep canyon via one of its seven trails. The Weeping Rock trail is an easy half hour round-trip, making it suitable for the whole family. Experienced hikers might want to try the Angels Landing trail; the four-hour loop features impressive views but is not recommended for those with a fear of heights. The canyon is also home to a number of amenities and attractions, including a visitor center, a human history museum, and lodge. Using our online itinerary creator, Zion National Park attractions like Zion's Main Canyon can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
