Zion National ParkNature Notes

Desert hiking can be dangerous if you are ill prepared. For long backcountry trips consider avoiding June and July and opt for the cooler spring and autumn months. Be sure to wear a hat and use sunscreen to help prevent damage from the sun. Be prepared for cold temperatures at night since the Utah desert is a place where there are extremes. Always bring along plenty of water and do not drink untreated water from springs or other natural sources.
