Court of the Patriarchs Professional Review and Guide
"The Court of the Patriarchs is the first shuttle stop after you enter Zion Canyon and begin the dramatic ascent. Most visitors stay on the bus and glance at the three Patriarchs from the shuttle’s windows. But if you have a few days to enjoy the park and aren’t rushed, then stopping at Court of the Patriarchs and leisurely walking to Zion Lodge is a wonderful way to enter the heart of the canyon—evoking the days when early settlers walked the riverbanks and gazed in amazement at the towering mountain cathedrals above."
--Greg Witt, 50 Best Short Hikes: Utah's National Parks (Wilderness Press).
