The park attracts nearly four million visitors each year.
Carved by water and time, Zion National Park is a canyon that invites you to participate in the very forces that created it. Park’s canyons and mesas boast an especially exquisite beauty, even in a state known for dramatic landscapes Zion Canyon is the centrepiece of this parkland that protects a spectacular landscape of high plateaus, sheer canyons, and monolithic cliffs.
