Zion National Park Sights

Zion Canyon's grandeur is best experienced on foot whenever possible, but there is something to be said for covering a lot of ground on wheels. Take the shuttle whenever possible. Driving is the only way to easily access Kolob Canyon, for example, and from November through March, driving your own vehicle is the only way to access the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive.
