The town just before Springdale (the gateway to ZNP) is Rockville. Rockville is the gateway to Grafton (approx. 15 – 20 minutes from the park entrance). Grafton boasts some restored homes and a church from the mid 19th century. The bicycle scene in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, the 1969 film starring Redford and Newman, was filmed in Grafton. You can still walk by the buildings and see the fruit trees and fields. There is an old tractor nearby that many people choose to use as a backdrop for a unique picture with Zion looming large in the distance. One more point of interest about Grafton, the very first film shot outdoors with people’s voices (called a “talkie movie” was shot at this location as well.
