Red Lion St George is a convenient gateway to Zion National Park and to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. You will also be within driving distance of Bryce Canyon National Park and Cedar Breaks National Monument. The city makes a great base camp for day trips to national parks.

Designated in 1919, Zion National Park is Utah's oldest national park. Canyons and spectacular views decorate the hikes along the park, including The Narrows, Subway, and Angels Landing. With nearly three million visitors per year, Zion is Utah's most popular park.

Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon National Park has thousands of spires rising in brilliant color from its amphitheaters. Eons of wind, water, and geologic events shaped and etched the pink cliffs. The park is surprisingly not actually a canyon, but the Paunsaguant Plateau's eastern slope.

Cedar Breaks National Park

Cedar City, UT 84721

Native Americans dubbed Cedar Breaks the "Circle of Painted Cliffs." This amphitheater drops 2,000 feet to its floor. The intricate spires and canyons are painted in a menagerie of reds, yellows, and purples. The Dixie National Forest is also nearby, and there, you can find some of the world's oldest trees, such as the bristlecone pine tree, along the Spectra Point Trail.
