Zion National Park Hiking Trails: The Desert Lowlands

  The area of Zion National Park that lies to the southwestern corner is full of various cacti, yucca, and sagebrush and is much less frequently visited that Zion Canyon itself. Many of the trails in this Desert Lowlands area will be less traveled and perhaps even difficult to find at all. The views offered in this area are the many buttes and “Painted Desert” areas. In the winter and early spring, the clay ground in the area is often quite muddy and in the summer the area is quite hot, making late spring and especially Autumn the best seasons to visit the Desert Lowlands of Zion National Park.
