Hiking is Zion’s most common activity and that is not a surprise whatsoever. Zion National Park is home to some of the most memorable hikes in America.

Hundreds of more hikes exist in the areas surrounding Zion like Kanrraville, Hurricane, and St. George. If hiking is what you’ve come here to do, you’ve come to one of the best places in the world.

Biking

Biking is an extremely popular pastime in Zion Canyon as the local adventure outfitting companies can attest to by their bike rental numbers. There are three trails, in particular, that should be recommended. Gooseberry Mesa, Kolob Terrace Road, and the one and only Zion Canyon Scenic Road. Between these three fantastic routes, you can have your pick of strenuous or leisurely as well as your choice of terrains – cliffs, mountains, forest, desert, you name it. If you enjoy road or mountain biking, consider bringing your own bike to Springdale on your next visit and make it one of your Zion activities.

Canyoneering

Canyoneering is not the exact same as rock climbing as it specifically involves traversing through literal canyons while engaging in rappelling, swimming, jumping, climbing, scrambling, and walking. When you stay at Cable Mountain Lodge, you’ll have close access to some amazing canyoneering locations. Zion is home to both technical and beginner routes.

They’ll get you suited up with the proper gear and lead you through incredible Zion backcountry for an unforgettable experience.

If you’re bringing your family, make sure river tubing is one of the Zion activities that finds its way onto your itinerary. Everyone will have a blast! Just make a visit to a place in town that rents tubes and take advantage of one of the most fun and underutilized Zion activities. The Virgin River is nice and calm and will provide an incredibly memorable and relaxing experience for everyone.
