Hiking in Zion National Park is delightful. Whether you prefer flat pavement, rocky trails, or secret off-trail nooks and crannies, gorgeous opportunities await here. Famous Zion hikes like Angels Landing and the Narrows dominate the magazine pages and internet galleries, but there are PLENTY more choice routes and destinations to explore by foot here. You could easily spend a lifetime doing so.
If you have never visited Zion before, by all means hike the big names first: Angels Landing, the Zion Narrows, Emerald Pools, and Observation Point are world-renown Zion hikes for good reason. Once Zion hooks you, come back to explore equally beautiful places that are a little (or a lot) more difficult to get to. You'll be glad you did.
We've grouped all the Zion hikes into six geographic areas of the Park (see below) to help you organize your Zion hiking plans. Since trailheads here can be far from each other, it often makes sense to hike in the same area on any given day, then move to another area the following day. Each area has distinctive geology, flora, and fauna, so visiting different Zion hiking areas will reveal more diversity during your Park visit.
The below trails are all official Zion hikes, signed and maintained by the National Park Service. For additional Zion hiking opportunities, see Off-Trail Hikes.
