Escape Adventures offers a unique road bike tour that covers 3 National Parks all in one trip.
Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, and the Grand Canyon, are a trio of nature’s finest. From southern Utah’s Brian Head Peak, descend off the mountain through a blur of aspen and pine to Red Canyon in the Dixie National Forest. Here, ride a newly created bicycle path lined with oversized sandstone figures–a curious token preview of a bigger scene that lies ahead. At Bryce Canyon National Park, our road through the forest opens abruptly to the brim of a giant basin filled to capacity with stone-silent gatherings of human-like hoodoos. Take a moment to hike down through its channels of bizarre form and color. En route to the Grand Canyon, ride through ponderosa forests and deer meadows to the North Rim, where anticipation meets its match at the highest edge of the greatest gorge in the world. A brief hike down the canyon wall manifests the canyon’s grand scale and magnitude. Cycling back over the Kaibab Plateau, descend more than 5,000 feet into Zion National Park, for a grand finale ride into the stunning sanctuary of the Three Patriarchs, Angel’s Landing, and the Great White Throne.
Day 1-2: Meet in St. George. Ride from Cedar Breaks to Red Canyon and Bryce Canyon, Hike the hoodoos of Bryce Canyon.
Day 3-4: Ride Red Canyon to Coral Pink Sand Dunes outside Kanab. Climb atop the Kaibab Plateau to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
Day 5-6: Enjoy a day on the North Rim hiking or biking to many of the spectacular vistas. Descend the following day back to Kanab and the East Entrance of Zion National Park. Ride from the highest to lowest points in Zion and into the quaint town of Springdale, Utah.
Day 7: Spend the final day riding or hiking along the Virgin River while the Great White Throne and Angel’s Landing linger 2000 feet above.
This adventure is perfect for a late spring, early summer departure and at a 3-5 fitness level, will be a good test for even seasoned cyclist. For more information, click HERE and request a detailed itinerary.
