Explore the Desert on Zion National Park’s Best Hiking Trails

When the weather on most hiking trails starts to turn cold, the desert is just hitting its stride. Zion is the place to be in the fall, with highs in the 70s, lows in the 40s, and an average of just two weeks of rain in September, October, and November combined. The hiking is good, too: With five distinct trail regions in the park to choose from, you won’t have trouble finding a spot even when the park is crowded.
