Zion trail maps

Purchase trail map from AmazonPurchase trail map from AmazonThe free maps below are probably fine if you’re mostly visiting Zion by car and bus. However, if you’re planning to do some considerable hiking or are going backpacking, then a National Geographic Trails Illustrated map is helpful (it shows backcountry campsites and topographic lines). I always prefer seeing topo lines when planning out my trip; it’s easier to figure out how much I can handle each day.

Zion geologic map

Zion geologic mapThe geologic map of Zion (11.2 mb) has a large file size, but its incredible detail about the various rock types that make up Zion National Park is great to learn about the geology of Zion.

Zion backcountry wilderness map

Zion National Park wilderness backcountry campsite map thumbnailThis map shows the Zion wilderness trails and backcountry campsites (1.0 mb), including trail mileages and water sources in both Zion and Kolob canyons. Great for planning a backpacking trip!

Purchase trail map from AmazonPurchase trail map from AmazonAlthough the above map is good for planning, it’s not suitable for navigation since it doesn’t show topgraphic lines and will be useless if you’re lost. Like many other parks, the best map for general trail travel is the National Geographic Trails Illustrated map. If you’re doing in-depth canyoneering, however, not even Nat Geo is going to be sufficient; you need USGS topographic maps and specialized canyoneering guidebooks.

Zion vegetation map

Zion National Park vegetation mapThis is a vegetation map of Zion National Park (5.1 mb), showing the different types of forests and brushland found within the park boundaries. It makes a good companion to the geologic map to learn about Zion.
