    Cool Things to do When Glamping in Zion

    Hiking Zion
    Canyoneering Zion

    Hiking Zion

    The Upper Emerald Pools Trail is a great hike and is only 3.2 miles long. It takes about 3 hours round trip but it’s so worth it. Try to go early in the day to beat the crowds if you can.

    If you’re looking for a little longer hike, you have Angels Landing Trail which is 5.4 miles long and takes about 4 hours. Again, go early and when you go back down, you can hike some of West Rim Trail as well.

    Finally, for the more hardcore, we have The Narrows Bottom Up, which is 9.4 miles and takes around 8 hours round trip. Make sure you hike this one when the weather is nice because you do not want to be stuck in a dangerous flash flood in this canyon.

    Climbing and Canyoneering Zion

    There are loads of boulders and rock faces to climb all over Zion National Park. Zion also houses a maze of canyon slots that adventurers enjoy climbing and traversing.

    This is called canyoneering, which is a combination of hiking, exploring, wading, splashing, scrambling, rappelling, and problem-solving. It can range from easy to very difficult depending on where you go and what equipment you have at your disposal.

    Beginners may want to try the lower end of The Narrows above the Temple of Sinawava. Those with more experience may want to head to The Subway and Orderville Canyon for more technical canyoneering. You can get more info about canyoneering here.

    Biking in Zion

    Another great way to explore Zion is by bike. The park is becoming more and more bike-friendly with established routes and the Pa’rus Trail. You must stay on designated routes and not bike on any other off-road trails or areas.

    For added convenience, there’s a shuttle bus service in the park with bike racks. Try taking the shuttle up to the top of Zion Canyon and then bike back down. For mountain biking, there are some trails just outside of the park such as Gooseberry Mesa Trail and Right Fork: Bunker Creek Trail.

    So, you want to camp under the stars in Zion? But, you want a real bed, you don’t want to set up your own tent and you’re on a budget? Zion Exotic Camping is for you.

    Guest Review: “This campsite is nestled on a little hill, right below a huge rocky mountain. It’s nice and quiet and has a stunning view. The owner was awesome, he came and met up with us down the street when we got a little lost trying to find it! He showed us around the campsite and provided us firewood. The tent was super clean and well vented with a king bed. The bathrooms were a short walk from the site as well. So worth it! A more affordable option to the other luxury camping sites, but just as beautiful.”

    Guest Review: “Stayed at this property for three nights with my fiancé, during our trip to Zion! It is literally a mile, if that, outside of the east entrance of Zion National Park! It takes about 30 minutes to get from the airbnb to the visitor center/Springdale, but you drive right through the park the entire time, which I would do a thousand times over again for those views!! I felt lucky to be able to do that drive multiple times in a day, absolutely beautiful. The airbnb was perfect and exactly what we were looking for! AC and WiFi worked great for us during our stay! Would highly recommend this property and the manager was very responsive and super helpful with recommendations! Hope to make it back out here one day and would definitely stay here again!”
