Big Bend

This is a large, sweeping bend in the Virgin River.

In the cooler months of the year, look for adventurous rock climbers attempting to scale Zion Canyon’s big walls. In the summer, look for nesting raptors up above such as the once-endangered Peregrine Falcon and the currently endangered California Condor. You will not find services or facilities here, however you can take in stunning views of the Great White Throne, Angels Landing, Cable Mountain, and the Virgin River. You can access the Virgin River along a designated trail at this point as well.

Shuttle Service

When the Zion Canyon Shuttle is running, Big Bend is shuttle stop #8. Shuttles do not pick up at this spot to take visitors up-canyon. Shuttles only stop to bring visitors down-canyon towards the Zion Canyon Visitor Center.
