Getting Around Zion: Shuttle System and Driving

Zion is extremely busy and parking is also extremely limited. This combination means that often, the main parking lot of the park is full during peak season. It is important to arrive as early as possible when visiting Zion and plan to utilize the shuttle system as much as possible. You no longer need to apply for a shuttle pass in advance and can simply wait in line (which can get very long) at the main visitors center in order to ride the shuttle.

The shuttle system in Zion National Park is a great way to get around the park and see all the different attractions. There are two different shuttle loops, the red and the green, and each one has its own set of stops. The shuttles run every fifteen minutes from early morning until late evening, so you never have to wait too long for one to come by. You can find the up-to-date shuttle schedule here.

The red shuttle loop (The Springdale Line) is shorter and covers the entrance to the park as well as a few stops in Springdale so it is also called the Town Line. It is a great option for those entering and exiting the park who did not manage to find parking in the main visitors center.

The green shuttle loop (The Zion Canyon Line) goes into the Temple of the Sinawava. If you’re looking to do some hiking or biking, the green shuttle is definitely the way to go as it will take you to many of the major trailheads. Bikes are allowed on the buses. The Canyon Line also goes through Zion Canyon Scenic Drive which is one of the most popular areas of the park. You cannot drive this drive with a private vehicle unless you are staying at the Zion Lodge.

Overall, the shuttle system in Zion National Park is a great way to get around and see everything that the park has to offer. It’s easy to use, and it’s a great way to avoid traffic congestion. The shuttle does not do the Zion-Mount Caramel Highway so you will want to drive that yourself.

The shuttle normally runs daily during peak season (March-November) and on weekends during the winter (February-March).

History of Zion National Park

Zion National Park is a place of incredible natural beauty and history. The park was first established as Mukuntuweap National Monument in 1909 by President Taft. This name had been used historically to describe the area as it had been believed to be the Paiute name for the area. In 1919, the monument was renamed Zion and established into a National Park, and in 1956 the Kolob Canyon section was added to the national park, designating the area as it is today.

Despite being an area that was inhabited by indigenous cultures for centuries, the much of recorded history of Zion National Park is closely tied to that of the Mormons. The park was first inhabited by Native Americans who used the area for hunting and gathering. The first Europeans to visit the area were Spanish explorers in the late 1500s. They named the park “Canyon of the Gods” and noted its impressive beauty.

In 1858, Mormon pioneers arrived in the area and began to settle. They were the first to start calling the area Zion, which is derived from the Hebrew word for “holy.” The pioneers began to farm and build settlements in the area, and soon tourism started to grow. Today, Zion National Park attracts more than 2.5 million visitors each year.

This itinerary will help you plan how to spend one day and two days in Zion National Park while still being able to experience most of the major sites.

What to See in Zion National Park in One Day

Zion National Park is a stunning place to take a scenic drive so the first day of your itinerary is focused on driving through the beautiful park. The park is filled with towering red cliffs, pristine river valleys, and forested plateaus. The park provides numerous opportunities for visitors to stop and take in the incredible views. There are several scenic drives through the park, including the Zion-Mount Carmel Highway and the Kolob Terrace Road. The Zion-Mount Carmel Highway offers stunning views of the Zion Canyon, while the Kolob Terrace Road provides visitors with beautiful views of the Kolob Canyons.

Drive The Mount Caramel Scenic Drive

The Mount Caramel Scenic Drive winds its way through the park, providing visitors with beautiful views of the Zion Canyon. The drive covers roughly 10 miles of the national park, and takes about an hour to complete and also includes a drive through the famous 1.1 mile tunnel through the mountainside (Keep in mind that oversized vehicles are charged a $15 fee to go through the tunnel). There are several stops along the way where visitors can get out and explore the area, or take a short hike. The drive ends at the Mount Caramel Overlook, which provides stunning views of Zion National Park.

The Mount Caramel Scenic Drive is a must-do for first time visitors to Zion National Park. It’s a great way to see some of the most beautiful scenery in the park without having to do any hiking which makes it perfect for people of all ages and abilities.

Zion Canyon Scenic Drive (Via Shuttle or Bicycle)

The Zion Canyon Scenic Drive is one of the best ways to explore Zion National Park. Starting at the south entrance, the drive stretches along a narrow road up the canyon and provides stunning views of the park’s towering sandstone cliffs, cascading waterfalls, and colorful wildflowers. Along the way, there are several stops that allow visitors to take in all of Zion’s beauty and learn more about its history. It is important to note that this shuttle route goes into an area that is only accessible by shuttle, foot, or bicycle so you should plan to utilize the shuttle system for this scenic drive.

The first must-see stop is Big Bend Overlook. Located in the southwest corner of the park, Big Bend offers panoramic vistas across the canyon and out into Utah Valley. The observation point is surrounded by unique rock formations including soaring red walls, weathered fins, soaring towers, and deep canyons. Visitors can also spot wildlife from this viewpoint such as mountain goats or big horn sheep in their natural habitat.

The second stop on Zion Canyon Scenic Drive is Court of The Patriarchs Viewpoint. This viewpoint gives visitors an up-close look at three majestic peaks: Abraham, Isaac and Jacob Peaks – which stand tall over Zion Valley below. From this vantage point, visitors can observe how these ancient sandstone cliffs have been carved away by millions of years of erosion to form its unique shape. The contrast between the rugged terrain and vibrant green vegetation make for a truly unforgettable experience for all ages.

At nearby Weeping Rock Trailhead visitors will find a shady path leading to an alcove with a dripping spring that has collected into a shallow pool in the rock below – giving it its name “Weeping Rock.” As hikers continue on this short but invigorating trail they will be rewarded with spectacular views of Echo Canyon below that will remain etched in their memories forever!

From Weeping Rock Trailhead hikers can make their way over to Emerald Pools Trailhead (the fourth stop). This easy trail offers stunning views of emerald green pools below with Zion Canyon stretching out beyond them. There are three different trails here depending upon one’s fitness level ranging from a 0.6-mile loop to a 3-mile roundtrip trek past two different waterfalls. Depending on the time of year, the water may be down to just a trickle.

Moving on down scenic drive is Riverside Walk Trailhead which gives hikers access to this beautiful two mile stroll that follows along Virgin River with trees providing shade while majestic canyon walls tower overhead. From Riverside Walk Trailhead there is also access to the Angel’s Landing hike which is famous for its perilous drops and fear-of-heights-inducing views.

Temple Of Sinawava is the final stop on the route and offers yet another great viewpoint from yet another incredible vantage point high above North Fork Virgin River with massive redrock cliffs surrounding it from every side. This is also the stop to access the famous water-based hike: The Narrows which is the deepest gorge at Zion National Park.

Emerald Pools Hike

Emerald Pools is one of the most popular hikes in Zion National Park and is doable for all ages. The hike to the Lower Emerald Pool is an easy 1.2 mile roundtrip hike that takes about 1-2 hours to complete while the hike to the Upper Emerald Pool is a more strenuous 3-4 mile roundtrip hike that takes about 3-4 hours to complete and has slightly more elevation gain than the first section of the trail..

The Lower Emerald Pool is a great place for visitors who are looking for an easy, family-friendly hike. The Lower Pool is a large pool that is surrounded by tall cliffs and has a small waterfall flowing into it. Visitors can walk up to the edge of the pool or even go for a swim in it (although swimming is not allowed).

The Upper Emerald Pool is more challenging, but it’s well worth the effort. The Upper Pool is smaller than the Lower Pool, but it’s more scenic with its towering cliffs and waterfall. There are also some great spots for photos at the Upper Pool.

Kolob Canyon Drive

In the late afternoon, take a drive up to Kolob Canyons. Kolob Canyon is a beautiful drive through the red rocks of Southern Utah. The canyon winds for 27 miles and offers spectacular views of the Zion National Park landscape, but the drive itself is only 5 miles long. There are several pull-offs along the way where you can stop to take pictures or just enjoy the view. The road is well-maintained and accessible for all vehicles, making it a great option for those who want to see Zion National Park but don’t want to hike.

This section of Zion is less crowded than the main canyon area and offers some incredible views. Be sure to stop at Taylor Creek for a short hike to Double Oak Arch. This relatively easy hike should take about an hour round trip.

Canyon Overlook Trail Just Before Sunset

The Canyon Overlook Trail is one of the most popular and iconic trails in Zion National Park. This 1-mile loop trail takes you to a majestic viewpoint overlooking the entire canyon. From here, you can take in the stunning view of the winding Virgin River far below, with its vibrant red-rock cliffs standing tall against a deep blue sky. If you go just before sunset, you can sit and watch the sun set over the valley below. It is the perfect ending to the first of your 2 days in Zion National Park. Just remember to bring a headlamp in case it gets dark quickly.

As you make your way along this easy trail, expect to be overwhelmed by nature’s beauty including wildflowers, juniper trees and a variety of faunas such as hummingbirds, woodpeckers and lizards. The sandstone rocks that line the path are an incredibly intricate work of art — keep your eyes peeled for colorful petroglyphs! The trail is suitable for all ages and abilities and can be done in about half an hour. Just watch out for young children as there are not barriers at every edge. Be sure to wear appropriate footwear as some areas may be slippery due to loose gravel.

The view from Canyon Overlook Trail


Zion National Park is a great place to stargaze. The dark night sky and lack of light pollution make for excellent viewing conditions. In the park, you can see stars, planets, and even constellations that are difficult or impossible to see in other places.

There are a few spots in the park that are particularly good for stargazing. One of these spots is the Canyon Overlook Trail. This short hike takes you to a viewpoint that offers stunning views of the Zion Canyon and the night sky.

Another great spot for stargazing is the Watchman Campground. This campground is located near the south entrance of the park, and it has fantastic views of the stars. There are also several astronomers who set up telescopes at the campground each night, so you can get an up-close view of the night sky.

If you’re looking for a place to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower, which is typically visible in mid-August, head to the Kolob Canyons area of the park. The dark skies and lack of light pollution make this an ideal spot to view shooting stars.

Day 2 Angel’s Landing or The Narrows

For the second day of your two day itinerary for Zion National Park, you should plan to take advantage of one of the parks famous hikes. Zion is a hiker’s paradise, with trails of all difficulty levels and lengths. The two most famous hikes are Angel’s Landing and the Narrows. You cannot do both in one day, so with only 2 days in Zion National Park, you will have to choose one.

Angel’s Landing

This world-famous hike is not for the faint of heart—it involves walking along a narrow ridge with drop-offs on either side—but the views from the top are more than worth it. The trail begins at the bottom of Walter’s Wiggles, a series of 21 switchbacks that lead up to Scout Lookout. From there, the final ascent to Angel’s Landing is a scramble up a narrow path with steep dropoffs on either side. There is no room for fear here; hikers must use their hands to pull themselves up and over large boulders.

At the summit, hikers are rewarded with stunning views of Zion Canyon and the Virgin River below. It’s easy to understand why this hike is so popular; the feeling of accomplishment after making it to the top is unbeatable.

However, due to its dangerous nature, Angel’s Landing should only be attempted by experienced hikers who are comfortable with heights. If you’re not sure whether you’re up for the challenge, there are plenty of other hikes in Zion National Park that will still give you an amazing experience.

The Narrows

  • Distance: 8.9-16 miles
  • Elevation Gain: 1,000 feet
  • Permit Needed: None

The second hiking option for your 2 days in Zion is the Narrows. This is one of Zion’s most popular hikes, and for good reason—it takes you through a slot canyon that’s been carved out by millions of years of water erosion. Be sure to pack appropriate gear, including waterproof shoes and clothing, and allow yourself the entire day for the hike as it is long and can get busy.

There are a few things you’ll need to know before hiking the Narrows. First, you’ll need to have some experience hiking in water. The river can be unpredictable and there are often rapids and deep pools. You’ll also need to be prepared for extreme weather conditions. The hike can be extremely hot during the summer, and it can also snow in the winter. This hike is deadly during flash floods so it should not be attempted if there is a chance for rain.

Most people choose to rent waders, boots, and walking sticks in order to make this hike easier. They can be rented from the outfitters in town.
