Travel Day. Flights will arrive in Las Vegas (LAS), and we’ll have a three to four hour trip to our destination. It’s a scenic drive with stops along the way. We’ll enter Zion National Park in the late afternoon, the best time of day to soak in the sights of this monumental canyon. From the park, we travel through the historic mile-long Zion-Mt. Carmel tunnel just before arriving at our private mountain home.
Heart of Zion. Our first day of exploring will take us into the heart of Zion National Park. A number of great hiking trails are accessible along main canyon road, including the popular Angel’s Landing hike. The final stretch of this hike- to the Angel's Landing viewpoint - is a heart-pounding climb up and across a narrow precipice with chains to assist. In order to control crowds and enhance safety, the National Park now requires a permit on this section. We will provide information about when and how you can enter the lottery for your permit.
- Hiking Recommendation: Angel’s Landing (5.4 miles) or Emerald Pools (3.0 miles)
- Picnic lunch at Zion Lodge
- Stop inside Visitor Center for trail maps and souvenirs
Bryce Canyon National Park. A one-hour drive from the house, Bryce Canyon is a world apart from Zion Canyon. And the hiking is completely different. Here, you hike into a deep canyon, a great amphitheater filled with beautiful and bizarre rock spires called hoodoos. Many of the formations have names or stories attached to them, and all can cast a spell.
- Hiking Recommendation: Peekaboo Loop and Navajo Loop (6.6 miles)
- Half-day horseback tours are available in lieu of hiking
- Picnic lunch at historic lodge/visitor center
Zion’s Backcountry. This day you can avoid the crowds and start from a remote trailhead outside the park boundaries. This hike leads you across a high plateau, down through beautifully sculpted canyons, and back up to an eye-popping viewpoint overlooking Angel’s Landing and other famous monuments.
- Hiking Recommendation: East Rim Trail to Observation Point (7-10 miles RT)
- Lunch packed for the trail
Zion Canyoneering. At the very end of Zion Canyon Road is where the Virgin River emerges from a deep, narrow canyon. This is where to start this day’s adventure. On this unusual hike, the river itself is the trail as towering canyon walls grow taller and tighter around you. You will at times be hiking ankle, knee or waist deep in water. No technical skills or gear required. This is a quintessential Zion experience and a spectacular life-list hike.
- The Narrows (6-8 miles RT)
- Lunch packed for the trail
Travel Day. With late afternoon departures from Las Vegas, we’ll ease our way back into civilization, indulging in scenic and/or shopping stops along the way.
I joined Fit 4 Adventure's vacation to Zion and Bryce this past week. It was my first time booking with the group and I wasn't really sure what to expect. After a fantastic week with 14 other amazing people, I would definitely recommend Fit 4 Adventure. The guides I had, Joe and Ali, really spent the whole trip with us as if they were part of the group which you might not expect from other agencies. Zion and Bryce were both beautiful parks!
Great organization for putting trips together! My first trip was to Bryce Canyon & Zion National Park! Lots of hiking, great food and great group of people! A+! Thank you!!
Just got back from the Utah Zion National Park hiking trip and it was beyond anything we could have expected! Emily and Joe were the perfect guides, the house we stayed at was spectacular, all logistics were taken care of, and Zion and Bryce National Park were stunning. Already trying to find the next trip we can go on with this group.
Ginna and I had an awesome time. We not only enjoyed all of the hikes but also enjoyed meeting and spending time with everyone. On the way home we discussed what a great job Ali and Joe did not only in leading the hikes but also in dealing with all of the logistics of such a trip. Thanks to all in making this a memorable trip for us.
This trip provided me with some great sampling of hikes within Utah’s two great national parks - Zion and Bryce and wonderful opportunity to meet, engage and forge new friendships with terrific group of folks who enjoy nature as much as I do - and kudos to our wonderful guides Joe and Ali
We'll plan the trip!
