Bicycling Magazine’s editor called it “the most awe-inspiring and unique landscape I’ve ever pedaled through.” Bryce and Zion National Parks are a marvel. Mega-boulders of orange sandstone balance on razor-thin needles; arches glow with unearthly fire; slot canyons unspool between cliffs of gold and rose. Whether you are a novice or an experienced cyclist, this biking and hiking tour gives you an intimate encounter with the canyonlands - from curving roads to labyrinths, aspen forests and breathtaking panoramas.

National Parks on This Tour: Bryce Canyon National Park | Cedar Breaks National MonumentZion National Park 

Show All
DAY 1

Meet in St. George. Ride from the giant Cedar Breaks amphitheater to Panguitch, then (if you wish) to the hotel near the entrance to Bryce Canyon.

Meet us in St. George, Utah (public shuttle is available from the Las Vegas airport.) Begin riding just north of there, in Dixie National Forest's Cedar Breaks National Monument — a huge amphitheater of amazing red and orange sandstone sculptures carved by the wind and rain. Pedal down a long, gradual hillside, descending through the  aspens and pines of Dixie National Forest to the flat farmland around the town of Panguitch. Cycle past the vivid sandstone formations of Red Canyon on a paved bike path leading to Bryce Canyon National Park, where you'll spend the next two nights.

DAY 2

Hike the Queen’s Garden / Navajo Loop and Fairyland trails. Ride to panoramic Rainbow Point.

This morning, hike into Bryce Canyon on the aptly named 'Fairyland Trail' or the shorter Queen's Garden stroll. Cone-shaped hoodoos resembling wizards and gnomes guard the path; behind every curve lies a jaw-dropping view. After lunch, choose between a delightful 17-mile downhill ride from stunning Rainbow Point - or a more challenging out-and-back.

DAY 3

Watch the sun rise over Bryce's hoodoos. Ride into Zion; picnic at the Canyon Overlook. Then ride Zion Canyon Scenic Drive - no cars are allowed.

Start off with a sunrise hike to our favorite Bryce Canyon overlook. The statue-like hoodoos of the canyon appear to glow from within as the sun’s rays creep down the canyon walls. After breakfast, bicycle through ranchland along the Sevier and Virgin Rivers into Zion National Park. Bicycling Magazine calls Zion "one of the world’s most beautiful places to ride."  Red cliffs tower beside the road as you descend the east side of the canyon; at the bottom, the six-mile cruise along the flat valley floor can take all afternoon as you stop to gaze up at the massive, multicolored heights. Zion doesn’t allow cars in this section of the park, so it’s an incredible bicycle ride. Spend the next three nights at Cable Mountain Lodge or the brand-new Springhill Suites. 

DAY 4

Choose from a range of hikes or biking routes in Zion Canyon.

Wednesday and Thursday, choose between some superb hikes and/or cycling options in Zion: the West Rim Trail offers panoramic vista points and the option of Angels Landing; a leisurely stroll to a beautiful waterfall is a second option.

Prefer to ride? Choose between scenic and challenging cycling options inside Zion National Park and on its border. Since the Park Service runs frequent free shuttle buses from our inn, through town, to the visitor center, and through Zion's valley floor, you can customize your experience.

DAY 5

Hike into the Narrows – a stunningly scenic slot canyon hailed as the ‘best hike in all the National Park System’.

Today's choices: more hiking and cycling options, including multiple cycling routes in Zion National Park or a leisurely walk to a sparkling waterfall. Conditions permitting, we offer a river walk into the Virgin River's Narrows - a stunningly gorgeous slot canyon with walls towering more than 1,000 feet high. The river covers the narrow canyon's base wall-to-wall in places, so you’ll be wading in and out of ankle-deep water as you hike through a rock-walled passageway less than 50 feet wide. We supply walking sticks and wading boots for this unusual and fun experience.

DAY 6

Ride from Zion through scenic valleys to a final celebratory lunch at Quail Creek Reservoir.

Friday, bicycle west along the Virgin River out into open range land and cattle country to a lakeside park for lunch. Afterward, conclude the trip with a 10-mile shuttle back to St. George.
