"Hike up Angel's Landing when you are there. Awesome view. And hike up the Zion River too."
Dogamonkey :

We are planning a road trip and on a short time span to spend. So we were wondering if you had to pick betwen Bryce Canyon or Zion National Park, which one would you choose and why, + any activites you recomened at either place.

Maui Boy :
"I have been to both many times. Know question, I would always pick Zion over Bryce as my personal favorite. Activities depend on what you like. There is much to pick from. From just sitting and enjoying the awesome views to hiking to top of Angels Landing."
sascoaz :
"Yep... both Zion and Bryce are great; you would not be disappointed with either. But, I personally prefer Zion because it has a wider range of experiences and scenery - rivers, waterfalls, narrows, soaring cliffs, slickrock, incredible views. Bryce has the famous colored spires and rock fins - very cool to be sure, but that is pretty much it. If you are going there, then either the Peek-a-boo trail or (better yet) the Navajo trail will take you through the prime areas and formations. At Zion, you can have a pleasant day just riding the free shuttle buses and stopping at the overlooks and then enjoying resting along the river or on the big grassy yard in front of the lodge. Or you could do easy 'stroll' day hikes to Emerald Pools or Weeping Rock. If you are up for more adventure, do the incredible hike to Angel's Landing (unless you are afraid of heights) or wade in the river up into the famous Zion 'Narrows' (unless it is too cold or the water too high). There are also more eating and lodging options at Springdale near Zion (my top pick is 'Zion Pizza & Noodle Company' - Yum!)."

One of our stops along the way across country is Zion National Park... im trying to find something i would like to do.... im a hands on, do it myself-er.... i dont like tours, and i dont like stuff where there is an instructor with you... i like sports stuff... like repelling or kayaking... that kind of thing.... if you have good websites or info #'s to call... let me know! thank you soooo much! ACCEPTING ANY IDEAS! PLEASE HELP ♥♥♥

mr danger :
"The hike up the Narrows comes to mind. Hike is a misnomer it's actually a wade and depending upon how tall you are ,a swim up the N. Fork of the Virgin River. The Narrows is a slot canyon and you really need to be careful when hiking in it bc the water from a T-storm can flush you out of it sometimes w/ very negative results, Talk to the backcountry rangers about other hikes in the park"
Jeff M :
"There is plenty of hiking and climbing there. Check out the Angel's Landing trail that leads to one of the more spectacular points in the park. Its an awesome place."

Hank and Mariangela Landau purchased a slice of heaven: 20 acres surrounded by Zion National Park and its red-rock hoodoos and towering sandstone walls. The 2005 sale frustrated park officials, who had wanted to buy the land for years but couldn't come up with the money. The inablility of park officials to make the purchase guaranteed that private
