We are travelling Zion/Bryce/S Rim. Here is our tentative trip plan. Please advise and provide suggestions.
Family of four - 10 & 8 year old boys
Love Nature and can manage small hikes.
April 10 - late arrival Las Vegas
April 11 - Drive from Las Vegas to Zion -leave by 9am
Stop at Valley of Fire SP
Stop at Snow Canyon SP near St. George
Reach Zion, see sunset(is there a good spot for this??) and relax
April 12 - All day at Zion. Will do small hikes like Riverside walk, Emerald Pools. Any other safe hike recommendations are welcome.
April 13 - Do the Canyon Overlook hike. Leave to go to Bryce. On the way stop at Red Canyon. Is it possible to see Cedar Breaks somehow??? I really want to squeeze this. Other places to stop?? Reach Bryce and see the sunset. Walk around the rim trails and plan hike based on the time left in the day.
April 14 - Sunrise Point. Drive 12 upto Boulder and return back. Stop at Kodacrome SP, Escalante, Anazasi. Is it doable? what else can be done this time of the year on this route?? Can we drive part of Burr Trail in a rental car?
April 15 - Leave Bryce to go to Page. Stop at Coral Pink Sand Dunes SP. See the Horseshoes bend. Any other fun stops or scenic routes??? Stay overnight in Page.
April 16 - Take a tour of Antelop Canyon. Any other ideas??? Boat trip on LPowell is not cheap. Is it possible to go to Monument Valley and reach South Rim at night?? Stay at Yavapai in GC.
April 17 - All day at the South Rim
April 18 - Half day in South Rim. Leave 1pm to go to Las Vegas.
April 19 - All day in Vegas
April 20 - 6:30am flight back to SFO
