Zion National Park (Utah)

Darby's Top Reasons to love this hike:

1) Most National Parks don't allow dogs in the park, but Zion has the Pa'Rus Trail that let's us doggies hike for 3.5 miles.


Pa'Rus Trail, Zion National Park- Utah.

2) Lushness is abundant! Ground cover flora, cottonwoods, evergreens, wildflowers and more. Views of amazing Zion National Park are incredible (so I hear).

3) Hike along the Virgin River (I love rivers!)

Virgin River, Zion.

4) Great trail for hiking if you are staying in the town of Springdale, staying at park cabin or camping in near by parks. No dogs in the tent sites though.

Zion RV Park is where we lived for 4 nights.

 5) Near-by town of Springdale has an off leash park near the entrance to town, near the Chevron, called George A. Barker Park, no relation.
