The day of your tour, we will meet you at the Hampton Inn of Springdale, Utah in our safe and spotless custom Jeep. From there we will drive about 15 minutes towards the backcountry, an area unseen or even known by most of the 4 million visitors to Zion. As we hit the dirt and along the way, your guide will share layers of knowledge about the history, geology, and biology in a way only a “local” could know.
Who has lived here and how did they survive such a harsh environment? Why are these rocks so colorful? What kind of animal scat is that? Can we stop to take a selfie next to that crazy rock formation? We’ll take time for pictures, questions, and breathtaking views as you look out 40 miles upon the horizon. You are our first priority and we will do our best to follow your interests along the way. We take the time and care to do all the little things that add up to the most memorable part of your vacation in Utah. That’s what makes us better than the rest!
How about some suggestions for the remainder of your Zion vacation?
High Adventure Seekers:
– There are a number of outfitters in Springdale that offer equipment rental, technique classes, and guided trips as needed. You should seek the advice and guidance of these experts before jumping into anything. – Zion National Park is known for its world class canyoneering opportunities. There are so many slot canyons and holes to rappel into and hike your way out of. The Subway, Keyhole, and Imlay are three of the most common routes in the area.
– Mountain biking is great around here. In Virgin, Utah there is the Hurricane Cliffs trail system which has some unique scenery. The J.E.M. Trail is probably the most well-known and isn’t crazy technical. Also nearby for more advanced riders is a trail named Guacamole.
– Hiking one of Zion’s most extreme trails is a good way to spend a day as long as you’re prepared physically and with proper supplies. Angels Landing is probably the most popular trail for thrill seekers. Though it isn’t a long hike, you climb 1500 feet in just a couple of miles while crossing some very narrow sections at the end. A chain is all that
prevents a fall from either side. Another trail called The Narrows is a route that takes you in the frigid Virgin River for miles and miles. The beauty of 2000 foot sandstone walls rising above you is an experience you’ll never forget. There are two ways to hike this route: From the top down as an overnight hike (backcountry permit required) or from the bottom of The Temple of Sinawava and back as a day hike.
Casual Adventure Seekers:
If you are looking for a more laid back visit there is still fun to be had. The rangers at the Zion Visitor Center are happy to provide a seasonal newspaper and additional information you might need for planning things within the park boundaries.
– Zion rangers lead many programs about the wildlife, geology, biology, or history of the area. Memorial Day through Labor Day there are family and/or child oriented programs offered at The Nature Center and other locations in the park as well. Check the park newspaper for a schedule.
– During late spring and early summer months you can rent tubes to float the river through the town of Springdale. Later summer months are typically too dry for easy floating.
– There are quite a few easy to moderate hiking trails in Zion National Park. The most popular hikes are Emerald Pools, Riverside Walk, and Weeping Rock. All three of these trails are accessed by the park shuttle generally March – November.
For the Hungry Traveler:
Springdale has a great selection of cafes and restaurants for dining out and most are locally owned. For breakfast, many people enjoy MeMe’s Cafe as they have crepes, parfaits, and other satisfying morning choices. The local favorite for a fresh lunch is Cafe Soleil. Everything served is healthy but hearty. The traditional choice for dinner may be The Bit n’ Spur as they’ve been around forever and often have live music later in the evenings. A newer dinner choice in town is Kings Landing Bistro which features upscale dining in a relaxed setting. To be fair though, there are lots of great places to eat in the area and everything tastes great after a long day of adventure.
We at Zion Country Off-Road Tours thank you for going with the best and supporting our locally owned business! Happy trails!!
