SUNSET CRUISE

A three hour excursion to the heart of Zion National Park. Our route will take in breathtaking 360 degree views of Zion National Park , the Pine Valley Mountains and the Parashaunt National Monument. We’ll start at 4,000 feet in elevation and travel to nearly 8,000 feet, passing Ponderosa pines and magnificent red-rock formations. There may be opportunities to catch views of wildlife such as wild turkeys and deer. This is an area where the California Condor comes to visit, and we may also catch views of hawks, turkey vultures, ravens, or even eagles. This is an absolutely amazing ride that most visitors to Zion will never encounter. We’ll time it just right to take in the day’s last setting rays of light. Sunset may take on new meaning, as you take home your photos and grand memories of this experience.

This year we have placed a greater emphasis on our new jeep touradventures in the Zion National Park area.    We offer four different tours and travel in real jeeps to take you to some of the most beautiful destinations in the region.

The area around Zion National Park is spectacular in its own right.   We’ll take you to places where you can see views of Zion National Park that are not possible from within the park itself.   Southern Utah is was once the bottom of a great lake and as the lake drained, the flat bottom of the lake bed, became the top of the existing rock formations.   Rains, rivers, and wind have slowly carved the surrounding terrain into what we see today, but the tops of most the area formations are still the flat bottom of the historic lake.   We can take you to the top of some these Mesas where you can see for miles, sometimes in every direction.   Each view is awe-inspiring and will leave you marveling at the wonders of God’s creations.

This area is so filled with beauty that it couldn’t all be contained in one National Park.   The Zion and St. George are is surrounded by many state parks, national forests, national monuments and even other national parks.   Bryce Canyon and Grand Canyon are very close to Zion National Park.

Our guides are very knowledgeable about the region and as you travel with them on your jeep tour, you’ll find that they know the answers to most all of your questions.

Bike Ride Through Zion

Road Biking Allowed in Zion National Park

Many national parks prohibit the use of road bicycles within the park area. Most do this due to traffic, narrow roadways, and lack of bicycle lanes. This is a shame for biking enthusiasts because seeing the beautiful scenery from a bicycle is a great way to experience nature.

Luckily, there is a national park that not only allows road cycling but celebrates it. Zion National Park has pristine roads, gorgeous views, and special accessibility for road cyclists. This park is set up in a way that encourages road cycling, unlike most national parks which will not allow bicycles on the road.

Where to Ride
There are a few different places that people love to ride in Zion National Park. While most places are more accessible by those who prefer to mountain bike, there are roads in Zion that are perfectly paved and relatively free of traffic that cyclists will love.

Pa’rus Trail
Pa’rus Trail is the perfect place to head out on a road cycling expedition in Zion National Park. This road is easy to access, provides a great ride, and gives riders the chance to see beautiful scenery. This terrific trail runs alongside the Virgin River, which means the scenery and wildlife are unbeatable. The trail is only a little under two miles long one way, but it is packed full of great views and experiences.

Main Park Road
Once the end of Pa’rus Trail is reached, cyclists can continue to the main park road. This road is slightly busier, with buses passing about every half hour, but it leads to a gorgeous view of the canyon. For safety reasons, cyclists must pull off the road when a bus is approaching, but other than that minor inconvenience, riding the park road is incredibly enjoyable.

Mountain Biking Trails
For cyclists who enjoy road riding as well as trail riding, Zion has a huge number of trails to explore both in the park and on the outskirts. There are trails that lead along canyons, to the tops of mesas, and even along the river. There is no shortage of excitement for cyclists who come to Zion.

Perks of Riding Zion
There are many things that make Zion National Park a great place to ride. There are incredible views of many different natural formations to view along a scenic ride. The Virgin River is a common place to see the unique wildlife that inhabits Zion. The red rock and canyons reflect gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, engulfing the area in a red and orange glow. All of this, and more, is available in a safe and well-maintained riding area in Zion.

There is another perk to cycling through Zion that many people take advantage of throughout the riding season. The park buses will take cyclist and their bikes to trailheads and through the tunnel in Zion. Since cyclists cannot ride their bikes through the tunnel, this service is very useful.

Enjoy this Rare Opportunity
The opportunity to ride on the roads of a national park is one that does not come along very often. Of all the national parks throughout the US, very few of them allow road cyclist on park property. Those who love to get out on the road will really appreciate road cycling through Zion National Park.

Gooseberry Mesa Slickrock Trail

Famous for its twisting singletrack trail through Slickrock bowls and ledges, Gooseberry Mesa serves up a multitude of trail options to suit almost all riding abilities with fantastic views of Zion National Park and the Southwestern Colorado Plateau. Gooseberry Mesa is a great place to improve your mountain biking skillsets with abundant rock rollers and balancey steep but short uphill grinds.

 

J.E.M Trail Bike & Dip!

Desert singletrack so fast and furious it’ll bring a smile to your face. Relatively easy (technically) riding provides us with some wicked downhill riding fun as we juke and jive our way through the sagebrush lined singletrack and along the rim of the same Virgin River that carved the famous Zion Narrows in Zion National Park.

 

JEM-Hurrican Rim-Goulds Rim

Approximately 25mi. in length the combination of these trails makes for a great full day mountain bike ride for most people. This ride is strenuous because of it’s length and only moderately technical. Most people have a ne found love for the desert landscape after this ride as the views are tremendous and the riding is miles and miles of sculpted singletrack

 

Navajo Lake

Welcome to the high country. Here at just over 9000ft. the air is thin but the scenery is amazing. This aspen clad lake loop is aproximately 12mi. in length and can afford one the opportunity to look down Zion Canyon. This ride is a great place to escape the heat as temps can be as much as 20 degrees cooler at this altitude. Drive time is aproximately 1.5hr but scenic as can be. Because of drive time Navajo Lake has different pricing. https://staging.bikingzion.com/navajo-lake/

 

Thunder Mountain

Short in length but definitely one of the coolest rides you’ll ever do. This ride is stellar, from its twisting sigletrack climbs amongst pines and hoodoos, to its ripping final downhill section this ride delivers through and through. Some do this as a shuttled ride, but earning your turns is worthwhile. The first part of the ride is on a paved bike trail through Red Canyon, a miniature Bryce Canyon of sorts that provides a teaser of what’s to come. Thunder Mountian also requires different pricing. https://staging.bikingzion.com/thunder-mountain/
