How Crowded is Zion in April

Zion gets crowded in April, as it is one of the busiest months of the year. The weather is great, and people are happy to get away from winter. While June and July have the highest traffic due to school being out, April still sees more than 430,000 visitors to the park.

Our recommendation is to beat the crowds by getting an early start to your day. The issue is often finding parking at the park entrance or in Springdale during busy times, especially on weekends and during school holidays. The shuttles start at 7 AM, so if you get in early, you are sure to find a parking spot and the rush of people who slept in.

Where to Stay and How Many Days

You should spend at least 2 full days (better 3 days) in Zion to do the most popular hikes (Angel’s Landing, The Narrows) and a scenic drive.

Tip: To avoid the crowds stay in Springdale (closest town – hotel deals via booking.com) and take the very first town shuttle in the morning to Zion NP. It stops at 9 locations in Springdale to pick you up.

What to Wear in April

During the day the temperatures are perfect for shorts and t-shirts but the mornings can be cool. A light jacket or sweater may be all you need for these times but treat it like any other outdoor outing and be prepared.

Clothing tips from someone who always visits Zion in April:

‘It will be cool in the mornings. Rain showers are possible in April. Pack with the concept of layering in mind. You can start in the morning in a long sleeve shirt or t-shirt under a sweatshirt or light-weight fleece and transition to a t-shirt later. Lightweight long pants or shorts, depending on your preference. You should also have a light rain jacket with a hood that you should carry in a day pack.’

Dress In Layers

Mornings start cool and will get warm in the afternoon so always dress in layers. If you are planning a hike like Angel’s Landing make sure you are wearing merino wool or synthetic clothing to wick away the sweat.

Make sure to protect yourself from the sun with wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. The desert sun is deceptive as it doesn’t feel as hot due to the dry air but a severe sunburn will put a dent in your trip plans.

Formula for Comfort
  • Protect yourself from the sun with wide-brimmed hat, long sleeves, and sunscreen.
  • Start activities slightly cool so you don’t overheat and sweat once you start working
  • Wear a wicking base layer against the skin
  • Add insulation layers such as fleece or puffy mid-layers as needed for the temperature and activity level.
  • Finish with an outer shell for wind and water protection.
  • Add or remove layers as needed to stay comfortable and dry.
Wear supportive hiking shoes

While Zion National Park seems very accessible, it doesn’t take much of a trek from the trailheads to hit some pretty rugged terrain. Good hiking shoes or boots like those from Merrell or Salomon will give you the traction and foot support you need to conquer the trails in comfort and safety.

Things to Do in April

Drive

In April you are limited to getting around the main canyon in the park via the shuttle bus. It can be nice as you can stop and check things out at any of the stops.

You are still able to drive up to Kolob Canyon and Mt. Carmel with your personal vehicle but it isn’t quite the same as the drive up Zion Canyon.

The hiking in April is warm enough to be pleasant but not too hot. Popular hikes like Angel’s Landing will be busy on the weekends but the crowds will be smaller during the week.

April visitor Angel’s Landing hike report:

‘We headed out early in the morning to Angel’s Landing. Although we took the first shuttle to the trailhead, it was crowded at the top. We expected that in April. However, it was great meeting other people on the trail. It was one of the best hikes we ever did. As it was kind of strenuous for us, we rested at the lodge for the rest of the day.’

If you want to avoid the crowds you can either hike out of Kolob Canyon or just head further from the main canyon. The further you go the fewer people you will see.

Climb

Rock climbing in April is almost perfect with very little rain and nice temperatures. The dry desert air helps with grip and the crowds disappear once you hit the wall. The view of the shuttle buses snaking through the canyon is a site to see when you are 600 feet up.

As long as it is dry out you can climb in Zion but make sure you give it a couple of days to dry after a rainfall as the rain can weaken the sandstone.

If attempting longer routes like Moonlight Buttress, keep in mind the daylight hours. Start early and bring a headlamp for the hike off.

Canyoneering

If you are into canyoneering you can indulge in April but you will really need to have your gear dialed in to deal with the cold water. Routes like the Subway require a dry suit to handle the cold water swims that are part of the trip.

Any time of year canyoneering in Zion requires a wilderness permit.

Backpacking

Enjoying a backcountry experience in Zion NP is a fun as the main canyon is coursing with tourists while you are enjoying the solitude of the highlands. The temperatures are warm enough during the day to enjoy the hike while the nights are cool enough for a good night sleep.

Overnight backpacking requires a wilderness permit. Since the traffic picks up in April try to book your permit ahead so you guarantee a spot.

Follow Leave No Trace when you are in the park, especially in the backcountry.

The Narrows in April

The Narrows is a famous trekking trail in the Virgin River Canyon at the canyon’s northern end. Since the canyon is so narrow at this point, you must walk in it.

The conditions in the Narrows in April of last year can be different the next year. Flow and water levels are affected by snowmelt: How much snowfall occurred in the months before, how much snow is upstream, and how quickly does the snowmelt.

Can you hike the Narrows in April?

The water is very cold, but you can hike the Narrows in April. However, depending on the snowmelt, the park service closes access to the Narrows if the flow of the river is too high or there is a risk of flash floods.

Is it too cold in the Narrows in April?

The river is fed by meltwater from the mountains to the north, and it is still too cold to hike the Narrows in April without adequate protection. You should wear a dry suit with river boots for traction. These can be rented from local outfitters.

Road Openings and Shuttle Services in April

The road system in the main canyon of Zion National Park is closed to private vehicles in April. You have to use the park’s shuttle bus service to get around the park.

The shuttles run from 7 am to sundown (the Springdale shuttle from 8 am). Make sure you are on the last shuttle bus as it is a long walk back to the front gate. Check the current details and schedule here: NPS Zion Shuttle Service

Visiting Zion in April

April is a great time to visit Zion National Park. The valley of Zion Canyon is lush with green flora, the Virgin River is rushing quick and clean, and wildlife is frolicking in the warm sun. There are many benefits to visiting Zion in April, as well as some drawbacks. If you are able to visit the park in April, you are sure to have a fantastic trip, and leave with an appreciation for the beauty and magnitude of Zion.

Benefits of Visiting Zion in April

The biggest benefit of visiting Zion in April is the breathtaking scenery. The classic red, pink, and cream rocks of Zion contrasted against the lush green cottonwoods, junipers, grasses, and other plants is simply stunning. As the snow melts at high elevation, the Virgin River is fed with clean, aqua blue water, creating another beautiful contrast in the valley. Early wildflowers pop out in the spring and make for beautiful colors in the canyon as well. It is truly breathtaking in Zion in the spring. The lighting of early spring can create marvelous sunrises and sunsets, and is a great time of year for photography. Wildlife is also out and about more in April than it has been earlier in the year. Reptiles, amphibians, and small mammals will be out and more active as well as some of the larger animals being willing to spend more energy on play instead of conserving it for warmth. It is calving season for mule deer in the park, so keep your eyes peeled for fawns and other young ones.

Another perk of Zion in April compared to earlier in the year is that hiking is much more accessible and is in fact ideal in April. With the snow melted, the trails are open and accessible without winter gear or experience. This opens up one of the biggest activities in the park: hiking to some of the more remote areas that you can’t drive to. Hiking is truly world class in Zion and you will not regret the opportunity to do some of the more challenging hikes that were unavailable in winter. Angels Landing Via Scout Lookout is one of the most famous trails in the Park and is typically accessible by April. It does require permits however and they can be very competitive to get, so make sure you plan ahead and do your research or book a trip with a guiding company to do this day hike where permits are included. A related benefit to April in Zion is that you no longer have to deal with the winter weather that you would earlier in the year. Winter requires more gear and expertise to even visit the park, never mind hike or canyoneer, but April opens up many more opportunities. While it can still be chilly at night, camping is a more pleasant option and does not require snow gear. Backpacking is also opening up to more people as crampons and microspikes are no longer required and you can travel with three season tents. April is truly spectacular in Zion as all the best factors collide into a single month.

Drawbacks of Visiting in APril

One of the biggest drawbacks of visiting Zion in April is that spring break crowds start to arrive as the month progresses. Spring, summer and early fall are the busiest seasons in Zion, and you will begin to see the crowds in April. This means long lines for shuttle buses, overcrowded services, and peak season accommodation rates and availability. Anyone who has tried to plan a last-minute trip to Zion during peak season knows how fast accommodations book up. You will have to plan your trip months in advance in order to get accommodations at all, even outside the park. And if you do find any accommodations available, you will have to shell out peak season prices for them, as lodges and hotels know that this is when the busy season begins. Another drawback is that the weather can be unpredictable in April. While it will always be better than winter, April can still see snow at higher elevations that make trails inaccessible without winter gear. You might also find it to rain frequently in April, perhaps more frequently than you would like. Related to this, the high snowmelt levels due to the warmth of spring will make rivers and streams rise. This often results in the closure of the Narrows due to high water levels and strong currents. This hike is one of the most iconic in the park and some visitors feel as though they have missed out if they don’t get a chance to hike it. Another drawback is that you will not be able to drive your private vehicle through the canyon this time of year, but will have to take shuttle buses past Canyon Junction, which can make your schedule more confined and travel more of a headache as you wait in line for the next bus.

Overall however, April is simply a great time to visit. Your biggest drawback by far will be that everyone else also knows that it’s a great time to visit. If spring or summer is the only time of year that you can make it to Zion, here are some tips to avoid the crowds:

1. Get to the Park Early: The earlier you get to Zion, the more likely you are to get a parking spot, and the more of the park you have to yourself before the crowds arrive.

2. Visit Kolob Canyons: The Zion Canyon is small and crowded—since most visitors spend the majority of their time there. Kolob Canyons, on the other hand, are in a more isolated area of the park, provide incredible and unique views, and are much less travelled.

3. Go on a Picnic: Avoid the eateries at busy eating times, and choose to go on a picnic instead. You can stop at the grocery in Springdale before heading into the park. There are wonderful places along the river and in the shadows of the cliffs above you for a picnic meal.

Things To Do In April

Hiking is absolutely ideal in April. With trails ranging from easy to strenuous, there is something for everyone in Zion National Park, giving you the chance to experience the best of Zion from amazing vantage points. You can read our list of Zion’s best trails for recommendations. Make sure to catch sunrise or sunset from Canyon Overlook Trail or Watchman Overlook Trail. The Riverwalk Trail is also a great option to see the trailhead of the Narrows, a very famous hike that uses the Virgin River as its trail, winding deep into a slot canyon. The Narrows hike is rather treacherous, with very cold water and large mossy rocks on the riverbed that make it easy to slip. If you’re not comfortable doing this hike or if it has already closed for spring, the Riverwalk hike brings you right to the trailhead of the Narrows and lets you experience some of that slot canyon feeling as the canyon walls get narrower and narrower. While it will still be rather cold in April for the Narrows, you might not get a chance to hike them at all as they are always closed for at least a portion spring due to higher water levels from snow melt. Angels Landing, however, will probably be accessible and snow free in April. Permits are very competitive, so make sure you do your research or go with a tour company that will provide permits for you. The subway, a strenuous trail through a distinct canyon that requires some canyoneering and wayfinding, is also only available by permit, but is well worth it if you’re in the condition to be able to do this hike. Backpacking is also a popular activity in Zion, although the park has stricter regulations about group size, campsites, and human impact on the wilderness than other parks. Make sure you know the backpack regulations and understand the risks that this activity involves.

Bicycling through Zion Canyon is wonderful in April and lets you avoid the crowds of the shuttle bus and feel the crisp spring air whoosh past you as you cruise down the road without cars. Shuttle buses have bike racks in front if you wish to take your bicycle on them. Canyoneering and rock climbing are also popular activities in the park, and April is a great time to do them, weather permitting. These kinds of activities, however, should only be attempted by those who are experienced or with those who are experienced for the safety of everyone involved. Visiting Kolob canyons in the north west corner of the park is a great activity to escape some of the crowds. You can visit in your private vehicle and you’ll find this mini Zion to be just as spectacular but less crowded than the more famous areas. There are also many other national parks around such as Bryce Canyon and Grand Staircase-Escalante that make great day trips from Zion. Wildlife viewing is another popular activity in April as you are more likely to see newborn animals and the smaller animals, such as reptiles, amphibians, and small mammals will be out of hibernation and active. Birdwatching is also very popular in the park, whether you were looking for the famous California condors, migratory residents that haven’t yet left for the summer, or some of the park’s staple birds such as the American dipper or the mountain chickadee. If the weather takes a turn for the worse and you need some indoor activities to warm up, the visitor center has great interpretive exhibits and a 22 min park film that is informative and entertaining. The Zion Human History Museum is also a great option and has exhibits on Native American history, the effect that water has on the park, and much more.

things to see in april

Zion in April Angel

There are nearly as many things to see in April in Zion as there are to do, and if you read the previous section– you know that’s a lot. Sightseeing is one of the most popular activities in the park and it can be done in a variety of different ways: on the shuttle bus, in your personal car, on your bike, or on foot. There are tons to things to see in Zion in April, but we’ve compiled a short list of some of the must see sights. Make sure, however, to do your own research to see what piques your interest in the park, as this list is by no means exhaustive.

Kolob Canyons: Located in the north western corner of the park, Kolob Canyons is much less trafficked than the more famous Zion Canyon. With most visitors spending most of their time in the small Zion Canyon, you may find that it gets extremely busy and that trails are swarmed with visitors. Take a drive to Kolob Canyons and experience a quieter part of Zion. While you might not have the trail entirely to yourself, the red rocks, stunning waterfalls, slot canyons, and fantastic hikes will make it well worth your time.

Emerald Pools: This famous hike lying just across the street from the visitor center is a must do for first time Zion visitors. The trail to the first set of pools is paved and fairly flat; continuing onto the higher pools, the trail becomes steeper and more sandy. The farther you go on this trail, the more the crowds will thin out and the more you’ll be able to see these fantastically colored pools of water, gathering from dripping moisture above them.

Angels Landing: Whether or not you can or want to get hiking permits to do this strenuous but very rewarding hike, you should take time to at least see Angels Landing. If you feel like doing some hiking, the West Rim Trail and Scout Lookout make for exceptional views of the rock formation. But if you don’t feel like doing any hiking at all, the Big Bend shuttle stop on the floor of the canyon offers fantastic views from below.

Zion Human History Museum: If the crowds on the trails are becoming too cumbersome or the weather takes a downward turn for rain or cold, the Zion Human History Museum is one of the best indoor activities you can do. The museum centers on two main factors that have impacted the canyon: humans and water. First tracing human history in this land from indigenous people to early pioneers and settlers, the museum then takes time to observe how water has had an impact on this area, both as a creator and destroyer.
