My husband and I spent a week at this park and hiked approximately 51 miles total. When we left, we still felt there were three more hikes we wanted to do; we will go back some day. This is the year to do the East Rim Trail, there is plenty of water and the views are fantastic. The hike coming out of the East Rim into the valley are very steep. I would rather have hiked it when I was fresher; but I would not change the experience for anything. This hike gets a three thumbs up (by the way it is only 13.5 miles of our 51 miles and that took in cable mountain.)
The ride through Zion N.P. is short but amazing. It is best to be the passenger so you don't drive off the cliff because your gazing all around except for the road. There is a cool tunnel you drive through as well. I didn't get to get out and hike any trails because of my 2 year old and dog but we got to atleast see Zion. Also we couldn't drive to the Canyon because they closed the road for all vehicles and you had to pay for a tour bus. What a bunch of BS that was. Go see Zion and be amazed.
The cliffs here like giant hallowed guardians watching over holy ground. The park is one of my favorite.
