And then, there are the rivers. Only if you’re a really expert paddler, should you even attempt getting into the rivers. It’s only recommended that you kayak in Zion National Park’s rivers when the water is flowing in excess of 150 cubic feet per second. This is white water rafting at its very best, but also most professional. Don’t even think about it if you’ve never done it before.
But day hikes seem truly to be the thing to do, particularly if you’re not a hardened white water rafter with tons of experience. The day hikes in the Zion National Park hold lots of delights – be it the Kolob Canyons, Timber Creek, Taylor Creek or Kolob Arch, these walks will generally take up to half an hour. They’re plotted trails with a length of about 1.5 miles and are at an elevation of 300 feet that will give you and your group – no more than 12 people are allowed to take part in any one of these trails at a time – some truly awesome sights, without your having to suspend yourself from the wall of a canyon.
Before you come to the Zion National Park in Utah, you must do your homework – and your shopping. Getting all the gear and maps that you need and establishing exactly when and where you will stay is very important. All the other variables with regard to unexpected weather or footholds will feel less stressful and frightening if you can orient yourself sensibly in a base camp and know where your next meal is.
There is an excellent video which offers an overview of the park in the Zion Human History Museum, which is located one half of a mile north of the park’s south entrance. It’s an important museum which will orient you to the functioning and history of the park, and reinforce your understanding of how important it is to honor the rules in place protecting the natural surrounds.
