Wilderness Information and Permits
The Zion Wilderness is a spectacular network of colorful canyons, forested mesas, and striking deserts. All of the land within the park boundary is preserved by the National Park Service for the benefit of the public. In addition, a remarkable 84 percent of this extraordinary landscape is preserved as wilderness. This designation will ensure that over 124,400 acres of the park will continue to be a place where nature and its "community of life are untrammeled by man, a place where man himself is a visitor who does not remain."
