Spring is one of the best times to visit Zion National Park; it’s less crowded during the summer months, the weather is incredible, and there is so much to do and explore. Take a scenic drive on the Zion-Mt. Carmel Scenic Highway; hike to the Emerald Pools for views of waterfalls and red rock landscape; go rock climbing up Moonlight Buttress; go horseback riding on a scenic trail; and spend the night camping under the stars at one of the many campgrounds outside of the park gate.
