Navigating the Park

Within Springdale

Following the Zion National Park Shuttle Schedule, the Springdale Shuttle has ceased operations for the winter season. 

The Springdale Shuttle brings visitors from the town of Springdale to Zion Canyon Village, a resort center adjacent to the Main Canyon Entrance. The free shuttle runs daily when the Zion National Park shuttle is operating on a corresponding timeframe, stopping at nine locations in the town of Springdale and Zion National Park’s pedestrian entrance. Parking in the park and near the Zion Canyon Visitor Center is extremely limited, so parking near shuttle stops in Springdale is advised.

The shuttle is free and independent of the Zion National Park Scenic Drive shuttle.

Zion National Park Scenic Drive Shuttle Information

The shuttle has ceased operations for the winter season. The NPS will resume shuttle service in spring – specific dates TBD. When shuttles are not running, private vehicles are allowed onto the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. However, parking space within the park is limited, and park officials may close the Scenic Drive when capacity is reached.

When in operation, the Zion Shuttle takes visitors from the Zion Visitor Center into the canyon (typically from around sunrise to just after sunset). During shuttle operations, the last shuttle will arrive back at the Visitor Center around 45 minutes after it leaves the Temple of Sinawava. Do not wait until the last shuttle to leave Zion Canyon for the day. Due to limited capacity, the shuttle may be full by the time it reaches your stop and you will be out of luck.

At any time of the year, you can drive through Zion National Park and the Zion-Mount Carmel Tunnel on State Route 9. Parking is limited along this state road, but the views are incredible.
