Zion National Park is great to drive through. There are tons of pull offs with short, easy hikes for the whole family. We’re not hardcore hikers, and our fitness level is average, but we’re slowly getting our feet wet with backpacking. We love that Zion is also a great place to find longer strenuous hikes, multi-day backpacking trips, and is home to iconic hikes like the Zion Narrows, the Subway, and Angels Landing!
In case you’re not sure what you should do during your trip there, we’ve listed the best of Zion National Park hikes from easy to difficult.
1. Canyon Overlook Trail
Distance: 1 Mile
Time: < 1 Hour
This trail leads you to one of the best photography spots in the park! The trailhead is near the East entrance just before the Zion-Mt. Carmel Tunnel. After a short hike up from the street, you go through a large natural cave, and are rewarded with an extraordinary view of Zion Canyon below.
