It is noted that human life has been in Zion National Park and surrounding areas since around 500AD. There are many geological sites within the park such as Navajo temples carved from sandstone and Dinosaur Canyon which holds the skeletal remains of animals who thrived in Utah's ancient lakebeds.
The park also boasts some of the most amazing flora and wildlife in UT. There are great hiking trails where travelers will see some of the most incredible rock formations and scenery in the park. For those who are not interested in activity but only the backdrop, their are plenty of scenic drives through Zion Canyon, down Mount Carmel Highway and along the Kolob Canyons.
Since the park is large, visitors are advised to pick an area and explore it for the day. It is impossible to see everything! Guests are also advised to expect any kind of weather and to bring warm as well as cold weather clothing. Water bottles are available in several locations and visitors are advised not to drink any water from the streams. There are several passes depending on where you want to wander ranging in price from $15 to $50 for a yearly pass.
