The National Park Service has made great strides in recent years in making their facilities more accessible to those with disabilities. Visitor centers at Zion are wheelchair accessible, including the restrooms. Accessible campsites are available in South and Watchman campgrounds; Riverside Walk, at the end of Zion Canyon Scenic Drive, is paved and accessible with assistance; and Pa'rus Trail is a 2-mile paved and accessible trail, open also to bicyclists. Zion's shuttle system is completely accessible. In addition, park rangers are extremely receptive to helping visitors with disabilities. Disabled travelers can obtain free admission and discounts on many park facilities, such as campgrounds.

The Utah information and referral line for people with disabilities is tel. 800/333-8824, or go online to www.accessut.org.
