Mt. Carmel is located in the southwest of Utah near the southeast entrance of Zion National Park, in the region of Utah known as Canyon Country. Zion National Park is the reason most people visit Mt. Carmel. Zion National Park has many popular hiking trails for all ages and fitness levels. The most popular trails include the Narrows hike, which is a relatively difficult trail, involving trekking within a relatively fast-flowing river, situated in a narrow, steep gorge; and the Angel’s Landing hike, which involves climbing along steep and narrow cliff sides (not recommended for people with a fear of heights or people under the age of sixteen).
There are many accommodation options available, including lodges, motels, inns, RV parks and camping, and hostels in Mt. Carmel. Hostels in Mt. Carmel offer only basic facilities, including hot-water showers, occasionally free Wi-Fi or internet, free car parking, some basic communal areas (usually with access to a TV), and sometimes laundry services. Any facility or service not offered by the hostel in Mt. Carmel can usually be found in the town centre.
It’s worth nothing that towns situated close to national parks in the States tend to offer accommodation at a relatively cheaper price, as well as having more year-round availability, than in the actual national park itself. There are also free basic camping sites available within national forests and national monuments within the States, these campsites are usually sign posted.
Mt. Carmel is also a good base for visitors wanting to visit Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah or the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, which is situated in the neighbouring state of Arizona.
