Elope in Zion National Park

Zion is an extremely popular location but it has many unique spots to explore. The Zion Overlook Trial is one of the best spots to elope because you get panoramic views of Zion that are breath-taking. Then you have locations like Angel’s landing, The Watchman, Timbercreek Overlook and more.

Whether you are a couple that loves long hikes or you are a couple that wants the epic views without all the hiking- Zion is the perfect spot to elope. You can find the best hiking spots and you could also find a beautiful spot to relax, have a picnic and watch the sunset.


You need a permit to elope in Zion National Park even if it’s just going to be the two of you. Some locations have limited guest counts if you choose to invite guests. Check Zion Wedding Information Sheet for more information.

Best Time to Elope in Zion

Zion is beautiful during all season, I recommend eloping in the fall because you get the best weather and more privacy because trials won’t be crowded as usual.

Eloping in a Secret Joshua Tree Location

Yes, there are Joshua Trees in Utah. They look a little more distinct than the ones you find at Joshua Tree National Park. But, this is a secret spot in Southern Utah and way less crowded than Joshua Tree National Park. You will find many different forms of cacti and it is a perfect spot to just get in a 4×4 and explore.


You do not need a permit to elope at this location.
