Spend 5 days Mountain biking in Utah among the amazing sandstone cliffs and canyons of Zion National Park. After a tough day out on the trail, come back and chill out a relaxing riverside lodge.
Zion National Park, in South West Utah, is the state’s oldest and most visited national park, and you can see why. The waters from the Virgin River have, the millennia, carved through the sandstone rock, forming a jaw-dropping landscape or reddish mesas, canyons and steep cliffs. Home to a plethora of wildlife, with over 250 bird species and more than 30 reptile species, the park is a naturalists’ paradise. The riding here is phenomenal as well, with twisting tracks and desert trails to tackle. ‘Zion’ is Hebrew for refuge- and this is exactly what the epic scenery of this park offers a rider!
This tour of five full riding days is a chance in a lifetime to sample the stunning desert scenery and an excellent variety of singletrack before unwinding in riverside tranquility. Expert guides will take you onto the National Park’s most exciting and picturesque trails; skirting along canyons and creeks, fast downhill sections, outcrop vistas and rock slab traverses. The park does get busy especially in the scorching summer months, so this tour runs in the spring and autumn months, when the weather is cooler and the trails are nice and quiet.
This is the perfect trip to combine hard riding with indulgent recuperation! The desert canyon landscape is a photographer’s dream let along a trail-nut’s and you’ll have just the guides to maximize your experience. You’ll encounter all different types of riding from chutes to riverside trails and you’ll be riding in gorgeous sunny weather.
It’s recommended that you don’t come in without some intermediate mountain-biking experience and a decent level of fitness- guides can lead but they can’t do the cycling for you! You should make sure you’re well equipped for the terrain- that means right clothing and boots. Your tour company can recommend and source the right bike for you locally to make the most of this unforgettable riding adventure
