Zion, interpreted by Mormons as a place of safety or refuge, was given to this canyon by Mormon pioneers in the 1860's. Protected within the park's 229 square miles is a dramatic landscape of sculptured canyons and soaring cliffs. Zion is located at the junction of the Colorado Plateau, Great Basin and Mojave Desert provinces. This unique geography and the variety of life zones within the park make Zion significant as a place of unusual plant and animal diversity. Leashed pets are allowed only on Pa'rus Trail. Leashes must be no longer than six feet. Pets are not allowed on the shuttle, in the backcountry, on any other trails, or in the buildings. Pets may not be left unattended.
