Journey into a cathedral of wild serenity. Unpack its history. Marvel in its beauty. And discover its secrets.
Your Day In Zion connects a series of short hikes with e-bike (electric bicycle) riding in between. The hikes and the riding showcase the diverse splendor of the canyon’s geological, biological, historical and cultural wonders. Expect to do 3 or 4 hikes interspersed with a delicious picnic lunch, tasty snacks and ample opportunities to learn and appreciate why this place has been so special to so many generations of park visitors, pioneers and indigenous Americans.
We will begin the day by picking up our e-bikes and helmets, and learning the basics of biking in Zion. Then, skipping the crowds and lines associated with the Zion Shuttle System, we will travel to The Temple of Sinawava, the furthest point into the canyon. Here we will lock up our bikes and hike along the majestic Virgin River, perhaps dip our toes into its famous “Narrows,” and get your first up-close introduction to Zion’s iconographic Navajo sandstone.
From the Narrows, we’ll venture down-canyon where we’ll traverse the inspiring Kayenta Trail, which connects Zion’s serene Emerald Pools and provides excellent opportunities to learn its lessons of geologic time and get a tactile sense for its diverse layers of rock. Cap-off our Kayenta hike with a stroll beneath the refreshing waterfalls spewing from the mouth of Behunin Canyon.
Finally, we’ll culminate our Day in Zion with an invigorating hike of the Watchman Trail, where our vantage point offers stunning views of the dramatic West Temple cliff face under the playful colors on the sinking sun. Descending the Watchman, your guide will make a few insider’s dinner recommendations so you’ll be sure to enjoy your evening-out in the canyon country town of Springdale.
