Fall Colors at
Zion in September
In early September you will only see a little bit of color at the higher elevations. By mid-September about 30 to 50 percent of the trees at the higher elevation have changed color.
September is a nice time to enjoy the Zion National Park fall hikes, especially in the mornings and late afternoons when it’s not so hot.
Zion Scenic Drives in September
We highly recommend the Kolob Terrace road west of Springdale near the town of Virgin. Be sure to also drive Highway 9 toward the East Entrance!
