If you’re planning a trip to Zion National Park in November, you’re in for a seasonal treat. Summertime crowds are long gone, and the park’s mild autumn days and clear, starry nights make it easy and fun to explore its towering red rock cliffs, hidden river valleys and narrow canyons.
Check out these three must-do Zion National Park activities for your fall vacation.
Getting to Zion National Park
- Drive about 45 miles northeast from St. George Regional Airport in Utah
- Drive about 170 miles northeast from Las Vegas McCarran International Airport
- Drive about 320 miles southwest from Salt Lake City International Airport
When planning your trip to Zion in November, keep in mind that parking inside the park is limited. If all spaces are filled, simply backtrack to the town of Springdale, park your rental car and board the free Springdale Shuttle at one of its nine stops. Once at the pedestrian entrance at the park’s Visitor Center, hop on the free Zion Canyon Shuttle, which runs about every 10 minutes into late November. Rental cars and other private vehicles are not allowed on Zion Canyon Scenic Drive when the shuttle is running. But with all the views to take in, you’ll be glad someone else is doing the driving.
