The second best recommendation I can give concerning Zion and Bryce is to reserve a camping space in advance, definitely during the Summer months! The parks are very popular destinations, they are easily accessible by vehicles making them very busy! You can hike dozens of trails in both parks but if you are looking for “Into the Wild” type solitude… you probably won’t find it…. the trails can be busy too!
The amazing beauty of both parks far out-weighs any problems associated with how busy they can be in the Summer… they are both well worth at least a 2 day visit no matter how busy!
I hiked about 6 miles in both parks and had a great time! We are very fortunate here in the USA to have so many beautiful, well maintained National Parks…. I plan to wander through many of them in 2014!
