Zion and Bryce NP,
Hike in two dramatically different Utah National Parks which attract visitors from all over the world. Bryce Canyon is known for its hoodoos and sculpted multi-color landscapes, and Zion for its narrow steep red rock walls and awesome geological features. Both yield memorable hiking experiences high up on the rim and down on the floor of each canyon. In our two days at Bryce, we will hike the famous Fairyland Trail plus Navajo and Peekaboo loops for our up close experience with hoodoos. We will have four days at Zion to hike high up to the East and West canyon rims, enjoy the breathtaking views from Angels Landing, venture far into the Narrows portion of this slot canyon, and soak up its many unusual geologic features including the Weeping Rock, Hanging Gardens and Emerald Pools. Hikes fall in the moderate (5-8 mi) to strenuous (8-15 mi) range, associated with elevation changes between 1500-2500 feet.
