    It has rained at least an inch here in the last 24 hours. I think Heaps is full. (Behunin too, and likely everything else).

    Picture thanks to Yvonne Baur.

    Heaps is Full Yvonne Baur.

    It's been a while since I've been to Zion in the winter, looking forward to getting down there next month. Thanks for the pic/update.

    Zion Shuttle Schedule Dec 2019:

    The final shuttle schedule for 2019 has been released! Plan on using the park shuttle during the holidays.

    Shuttles will be in use:
    Now through December 1st
    and
    December 22nd through 31st
    During this time access to the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive will be by shuttle only. Plan on parking at the Visitor Center and riding the free shuttle from there. If parking is full, please park in Springdale and walk or use the Springdale shuttle to get to the Visitor Center.

    Shuttles will not be in use:
    December 2nd through December 21st
    During this time you may drive the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive with your personal vehicle. Space is limited and parking may not be available. During periods of extreme congestion, access may be closed.

    Read the detailed schedule here, including starting and ending times for both the park and Springdale lines:
    https://www.nps.gov/zion/planyourvisit/shuttle-system.htm

    We anticipate the return of shuttles in late February. Schedules will be posted on our website early in 2020.
