The deep geologic and human history of the Greater Zion area leaves us with landmarks galore.

Explore the natural wonders of a cinder cone that once spewed lava or dive into the history of the first Utah temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, located in St. George.

Broadly accessible to all, these unique fixtures educate you on the area’s makeup and history. Come to know these and you’ll come to know Greater Zion.

Landmarks sometimes overlap with historical sites, but there’s plenty to see and explore across all areas of interest.

Find your space in Snow Canyon State Park while exploring Greater Zion. Exploding with geologic wonders, Snow Canyon is a favorite of hikers, cyclists, and rock climbers. Kids love playing in the sand dunes, viewing the petroglyphs and exploring slot canyons. Stay and play in Snow Canyon, as it’s fun for the whole family!

The U.S. Federal Highway Administration has officially designated a portion of SR-9 as a National Scenic Byway. The Zion National Scenic Byway travels from the intersection of SR-9 and SR-17 in La Verkin, through the towns of Rockville and Springdale, and through the Park, culminating at it’s East entrance.

“We are pleased that Zion Scenic Byway is joining Utah’s eight other National Scenic Byways and All-American Roads with this well-deserved recognition," says Vicki Varela, managing director of the Utah Office of Tourism. “Zion National Park is among the most visited parks in the nation and this designation takes us one step closer to ensuring the Greater Zion area will remain forever mighty.”
