Zion's Main Canyon, Zion National Park

4.7
#3 of 15 in Nature in Zion National Park
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. Take a look at our Zion National Park trip planning website to schedule your visit to Zion's Main Canyon and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
