Wilderness Information and Permits
"Wilderness is not a luxury, but a necessity of the human spirit."
The Zion Wilderness is a spectacular network of colorful canyons, forested mesas, and striking deserts. In 2009, over 124,000 acres of Zion National Park was designated as wilderness. This designation will ensure that 84% of the park will continue to be a place here nature and its “community of life are untrammeled by man, a place where man himself is a visitor who does not remain.”
