Day 1 (Biking in Zion)
Arrive at Zion Mountain Resort anytime after 3:00 pm. Check-in at the front d desk and settle in. Dinner is on us. Enjoy a rustic meal from the Buffalo Grill and rest up for an action-filled three days.
Day 2 (Biking in Zion)
Off to the high country. After getting sized for mountain bike and sitting down for breakfast at the Buffalo Grille we will shuttle our way north through scenic Southern Utah on our way to Navajo Mountain where we will take in some alpine riding amongst aspen and pines as we circumnavigate Navajo Lake. We’ll enjoy a lakeside lunch and head up to Cedar Breaks National Monument for some sightseeing. Then it’s a rip-roaring good time as you descend from Brianhead Peak 11,000ft to the fishing village of Panguitch. We’ll grab dinner at a great secret restaurant on the drive back.
Day 3 (Biking in Zion)
Get ready for an action filled day of slickrock riding on the otherworldly mountain biking phenomenon that is Gooseberry Mesa. A virtual Moonscape of slickrock bowls and ledges twist and weave us through groves of pinyon and juniper as we make our way out to the western point. We’ll start off on the practice loop to feel out the ride and choose our route from there. Options abound and all skill levels can be accommodated. After riding we’ll head back to Springdale to take in some lunch and some interpretive hiking in Zion National Park on our way back to Zion Mountain Resort.
Day 4 (Biking in Zion)
Today we’re going to hit up the J.E.M. Trail. This is an unbelievably fast singletrack ride through the desert. We’ll be screaming downhill through low lying sagebrush and desert flora as we rip across the plains approaching the Virgin River. We’ll slow a little at this point as we will be riding right on the edge of a chasm that plunges to the Virgin River. We’ll take in lunch and say our goodbyes as we must go our separate ways.
