DAY 1: Hike Cedar Breaks

Highlights: Amphitheater at Cedar Breaks National Monument

You'll start your trip shuttling from Las Vegas to Brian Head, Utah, a small mountain resort town. After lunch and a brief orientation, we'll go for a hike at Cedar Breaks National Monument. Beginning atop the Colorado Plateau at over 10,000 feet, we'll hike below the rim to a viewpoint offering stunning views of this colorful amphitheater. Tonight you'll enjoy your first dinner together with the group at Cedar Breaks Lodge.

DAY 2: Bike to Bryce Canyon

Highlights: Optional hike (3 miles)

Today you'll bike from the lodge past Cedar Breaks and all the way down to Panguitch, a quintessential Utah cowboy town. With a mostly downhill ride, you'll be in Panguitch in no time. From there you may choose to shuttle or cycle to Bryce Canyon. After lunch, enjoy an optional hike into the Bryce Amphitheater on a path that winds through incredible rock formations called hoodoos. Tonight after a full day we'll enjoy a hearty meal and relax at our hotel.

DAY 3: Bike to Rainbow Point and Zion

Highlights: Bristlecone pines, Zion Canyon

After breakfast you’ll ride out to Rainbow point where you can see the oldest trees on the planet – bristlecone pines – that can live thousands of years. After returning to our starting point, we'll shuttle you to Mt Carmel Junction near the east entrance to Zion National Park. The ride from there takes us along the iconic red roads of Zion past checkerboard mesa. We’ll shuttle another mile through the historic Zion-Mt Carmel tunnel then return to the bikes to enjoy your first views of majestic Zion Canyon. For dinner tonight, we'll visit one of our favorite restaurants in Springdale.

DAY 4: Hike Zion Canyon Narrows

Today you’ve earned a day off the bike. You’ll return to Zion on foot. On the Narrows hike you'll have the chance to hike up the Virgin River through its cool waters as you wind along one of the world's best canyon hikes. Our destination on this hike is the narrowest part of the canyon – "Wall Street" – where the sheer cliff faces soar straight up above your head for hundreds of feet.

DAY 5: Bike Gunlock Reservoir

Highlights: Veyo, farwell dinner

We'll start the day shuttling you to St George, the last stop on our trip. Our loop ride today goes past Gunlock Reservoir and the town of Veyo before winding through Snow Canyon State Park and ending up at our hotel. Tonight you'll enjoy a farewell dinner as you recall the week's amazing events and stories.

DAY 6: Last Ride

Highlights: Snow Canyon State Park

After yet another delicious breakfast, you'll have the chance to take a spin to nearby Snow Canyon State Park – home to petrified sand dunes and lava flows – or, if you'd rather, feel free to relax and have a leisurely morning at the hotel. You'll then shuttle back to Las Vegas.
