Zion is getting back to normality.

A lot of wilderness permits are available again.
Backpacking permits are open again for reservation, including East and West Rim, La Verkin Creek, Southwest Desert. Only the Narrows overnight trips are still not open due to the highly toxic levels of cyanobacteria in the water.
There are no more walk-up backpacking permits until further future, all sites are reservable online.
I just reserved a permit for an overnighter in La Verkin Creek and the Southwest Desert for October.

All canyoneering permits where you do not need to swim in the Virgin River are open as well. This also includes the Subway bottom up. I snagged two permits for October and am waiting for November to open up. Canyons that are open are Jolley Gulch, Pine Creek Spry, Behunian, Telephone Canyon, Keyhole, Employee Canyon.

The wilderness desk is open from 8-4:30 pm at an outside window since no one is allowed inside the visitor center building.
