Best Winter Day Hikes in Zion



Description:

Because of its more southern location as well as lower elevation, Zion is a great place to visit in the winter. The canyon sees plenty of sun, there are far fewer crowds, and let's face it--white snow on red rocks has to be one of the most eye-catching, beautiful combinations found anywhere in nature.

These hikes are the best winter ones because they generally see more sun and are flatter than some of Zion's more well-known, steeper hikes, which can of course be a wee bit more uncertain in snow conditions. If there's sufficient snow, snowshoes or cross country skis are welcome.

Coalpits Wash and the Chinle Trail are not often trekked, which means they offer unexpected, very striking views. If you choose Northgate Peaks in the Kolob Canyons area, snowshoes might be your best bet.
