Tour by Day

Day One: Welcome to the Southwest!
Your guides will meet you in St. George and whisk you to the Inn at Entrada for a warm welcome to the Southwest. Following a bike fitting and safety talk, we set off to Snow Canyon, a lesser-known state park that boasts perfectly paved roads and pristine views of the surrounding purple-red mountains. Hop off the bike to explore canyons carved from red and white Navajo sandstone and fascinating lava tubes and flows before finishing our loop. Our first dinner together is at a favorite local restaurant.

Meals: Lunch / Dinner

Accomplished: 18 miles / 30 km, elevation gain: 424 meters
Accommodations: The Inn at Entrada

Day Two: Now Entering Bryce Canyon
Today we’re off to Bryce Canyon National Park by shuttle, with a stop to stretch our legs and soak in views of Cedar Breaks National Monument. At Bryce, cycle on the beautiful Red Canyon bike path that leads into the park and pause at Sunset Point for a picnic lunch with a side of gorgeous Bryce Canyon vistas. Afterwards, head back to the hotel to relax or get in some extra riding with a challenging climb to Sunrise Point and back. Tonight, we’ll dine at one of the best local restaurants in nearby Tropic.

Meals: Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner
Destinations: Cedar Breaks, Red Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Sunset Point
Accomplished: 16 miles / 25 km, elevation gain: 387 meters (Longer option: 32 miles / 51 km, elevation gain: 762 meters)
Accommodations: Bryce Canyon Lodge

Day Three: Early Jurassic Rocks and Relics
This morning we’ll explore the hoodoos of Bryce Canyon as they were meant to be experienced: on foot. The classic Queens Garden and Navajo loop leads us into the valley to get up close and personal with these staggering rock spires. After our hike, transfer to one of the best restaurants in the region for lunch. Later, it’s back to the bike for an epic ride that winds into Zion’s Checkerboard Mesa. We’ll pedal to Navajo Sandstone, a stunning formation built by nature over millions of years. Take a short hike to Observation Point to capture some excellent Zion Valley views, then transfer through the Zion Mount Carmel tunnel to continue descending switchbacks right to our hotel, just outside the park entrance. Tonight, our laid-back dinner lingers over beers at Zion Canyon Brewpub.

Meals: Breakfast / Lunch
Destinations: Queens Garden and Navajo Loop, Checkerboard Mesa
Accomplished: 16 miles / 25 km, elevation gain: 85 meters; 3 miles hiked
Accommodations: Cable Mountain Lodge 

Day Four: Choose Your Own Zion Adventure
Today, two options for adventure await. On a bike, we’ll cycle Floor of the Valley Road, a virtually car-free artery that runs through the parks’ majestic cliffs. On foot, we’ll hike the Narrows—weather and water permitting. Wade through the Virgin River running through the canyon, where hanging gardens burst from ochre walls and rivulets of water trickle through moss-covered boulders. Continue to the narrowest part of the canyon known as Wall Street to see sheer cliff faces soaring straight above for hundreds of feet. If the Narrows are inaccessible, your guides can recommend the best hiking options for your day, and Zion shuttle service (or your bike) can provide transportation to any trailhead. This evening we meet at our favorite Springdale haunt and relive the day over dinner.

Meals: Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner
Destinations: Zion National Park, Narrows, Floor of the Valley Road
Accomplished: 18 miles / 29 km, elevation gain: 250 meters; 8 miles hiked
Accommodations: Cable Mountain Lodge

Day Five: Earn your Wings on Angels Landing
On our final morning in Zion, wake early to catch the sunrise at Angels Landing. Pedal on a paved path leading to steep switchbacks, then follow a thin ridgeline to reach the top of Angels Landing and be among the first to arrive on top of Zion’s most memorable point. Your guides can also recommend a hike as an alternative for those who prefer to take it easy this morning. Enjoy a last brunch together before returning to St. George.

Meals: Breakfast
Destinations: Zion National Park, Springdale
Accomplished: 18 miles / 29 km, elevation gain: 250 meters; 5-7 miles hiked
