Zion National Park has three sections: Kolob Canyons, Kolob Terrace, and the main Canyon.

Kolob Terrace is an excellent alternative to visiting the main Canyon of the Park this weekend. Accessible from Highway 9 via the Kolob Terrace Road just after you pass the small town of Virgin.

Most of the hiking trails in this region are longer backcountry hikes that are best suited for more advanced hikers with wayfinding skills but the scenic drive is a breathtaking experience fit for all visitors with plenty to enjoy along the way.

Memorial Day weekend is typically one of the busiest weekends of the year in Zion National Park, they recorded more than 82,000 visits over Memorial Day Weekend in 2022!

“Pack your patience,” Jonathan Shafer, park spokesperson said. “We want you to enjoy your visit, and we want to be realistic about what you can expect this year. Be prepared to see lots of other people, be aware that parking usually fills early in the day.

Zion 2023 Memorial Weekend Tips 📌

🚨Trail bridge at Zion Lodge closed

The trail bridge over the Virgin River at Zion Lodge (Shuttle Stop #5) is closed. Hikers can still visit Emerald Pools from the Grotto (Shuttle Stop #6). Check a map before you start your hike to plan accordingly. Keep in mind that you will not be able to cross the river at Zion Lodge (Shuttle Stop #5).

🚨Narrows and other routes closed

Due to high water, the Narrows have been closed since mid-April. Hikers should not enter the Virgin River.

🚨Angels Landing Permit Program

Remember to apply the day before for a permit to hike to Angels Landing. Everyone needs to have a permit, and you need to bring ID to show a ranger with it. You may encounter a ranger anywhere on the trail or the route with chains. Arrive early so that you do not miss the hike start time on your permit.

🚨Take advantage of the park shuttle

The Zion Canyon Shuttle System recently moved to its full, summer schedule. Take advantage of the free, Springdale Line Shuttle to avoid traffic inside Zion and enter through the pedestrian and bicycle entrance.

The harmonious sounds that happen in a slot canyon are like natures choir. 🎶

A trip to the St. George and Springdale areas can easily be justified with a single hike in Zion National Park or Snow Canyon State Park. They are that good! It’s truly a unique experience you won’t find elsewhere.

But go greater! Go explore ALL Greater Zion has to offer. Take the path less traveled too.

The beautiful red and orange rocks burst and break into mountains, canyons, buttes, and gorges that make for some great hiking. It’s amazing to see what nature is capable of while hiking Zion National Park and beyond.
