Zion National Park Map

Zion Canyon is a mini Yosemite Valley, in red rock, in the high desert.

A terra cotta colored wonderland.

Zion National Park is one of the most visited of all the Utah National Parks Loop, due primarily to its proximity to Las Vegas, NV and Interstate 15.

Zion Canyon, from hiking trail to Angel’s Landing

ZION NP OVERVIEW: To prevent traffic jams and preserve the wildness, the NPS offers a common parking lot (on Hwy 9 @ Springdale, UT) with tram/shuttle service to and from the valley. Plan to be away from your car most of the day when visiting the main canyon. Unless of course, you have reservations at the main lodge. Numerous hiking trails, the Virgin River, Zion Lodge and a restaurants.

Utah Highway 9 leads east through tunnels and more amazing rock scenery, with abundant pullouts for RVs and visitors. Nice uncrowded hikes can be found on the east side of the National Park at many of these random parking lots along the highway.

A small portion of Zion National Park parallels Interstate 15. This Kolob Area is far less crowded than the rest of the park, but no camping is allowed.

Abundant boondock camps can be found all over the Zion area, even along the freeway.

Awesome camps that we discovered in the late 1990’s are now well known and crowded, all year long.

Free river beach campsites W of Rockville, high country of the Smithsonian Butte trail, above Grafton ghost town. These areas are NO LONGER a secret, and are very crowded. BLM camping at Leeds exit is on a first come basis and limited, so you better arrive before dark for the best spots.

EXPERTS TIP – Buy a real map and learn to find campsites, that no one else knows about. Mark a GPS waypoints for future reference. Have the whole place to yourself for once!

The Lassen Volcanic National Park is visited by more than 350,000 people every year. Incorporating more than 150 miles of hiking trails, it is visited by people looking to hike or backpack during the summers. Popular winter activities include snowshoeing and backcountry skiing. As the second-tallest volcano in Northern California, trailing only Mount Shasta, Lassen Peak is frequently visited by climbers and hikers from around the world. The summit opens for use most years near the end of June, remaining in use until snow falls in October or November.

The mountain’s summit trail can be accessed from a parking lot on the northern side of the California State Route 89. The Lassen Peak Trail, which starts from this parking area, runs for 2 ½ miles with switchback turns, a round-trip hike 5 mi in length that ascends approximately 2,000 feet from the trailhead at 8,500 feet to the summit at 10,457 feet. From the northeast summit, Lassen’s 1915 mudflow and Prospect Peak are visible; the northwestern summit offers views of Lassen’s two bowl-shaped craters and Mount Shasta, 80 miles to the north. The southern entrance to the park area has a winter sports area where visitors can ski, snowshoe, and within the Lassen National Forest, visitors can also bicycle, go boating, or use snowmobiles.

TOP of Yosemite Falls (see water on lower left)

Yosemite Valley represents only one percent of the park area, but this is where most visitors arrive and stay. The Tunnel View is the first view of the Valley for many visitors and is extensively photographed. El Capitan, a prominent granite cliff that looms over Yosemite Valley, is one of the most popular rock climbing destinations in the world because of its diverse range of climbing routes in addition to its year-round accessibility. Granite domes such as Sentinel Dome and Half Dome rise 3,000 and 4,800 feet, respectively, above the valley floor at 4000 feet.

The high country of Yosemite contains beautiful areas such as Tuolumne Meadows, Dana Meadows, the Clark Range, the Cathedral Range, and the Kuna Crest. The Sierra crest and the Pacific Crest Trail run through Yosemite, with peaks of red metamorphic rock, such as Mount Dana and Mount Gibbs, and granite peaks, such as Mount Conness. Mount Lyell is the highest point in the park, standing at 13,120 feet. The Lyell Glacier is the largest glacier in Yosemite National Park and is one of the few remaining in the Sierra Nevada today.
Yosemite Books
The park has three groves of ancient giant sequoia trees; the Mariposa Grove (200 trees), the Tuolumne Grove (25 trees), and the Merced Grove (20 trees). Many of the trees in Mariposa Grove were recently toppled by severe winds in 2020; Groves may be closed due to cleanup efforts.
