    Default Yellowstone NP to Zion NP


    We are visiting Yellowstone NP and Zion NP in summer 2011, we have 3days/2nights to get from YS to Z. I have no great desire to visit Salt Lake City so am looking to split the journey up into a 3 journeys of 3 or 4 hours with 2 over night stays on the way.

    Does anyone have any ideas of cool or interesting towns between YS and Z national parks.

    Plus as we are YS (3days ) and Z (2days) virgins any help or tips for things to do when we are in the parks would be greatly appreciated..we are not big hikers but dont mind gentle strolls and would quite like to hire bikes if thats possible.

    I am rambling now and probably dont make any sense but any help at all would be great.

    Default How about Flaming Gorge?

    Hello Nothernsole,

    Perhaps a day on the water at Flaming Gorge Reservoir would be nice. Hire a fishing guide for a day of deep trolling for large lake trout.

    A guided fly-fishing float of a segment of the Green River with the starting point being at the base of the dam is nice, too. Else one can just do a non-fishing paddle trip. The canyon is beautiful, the waters swift, but no heavy whitewater.

    Park City, UT is surrounded by a network of hiking trails, single-track mountain bike trails, and a segment of rails-to-trail (read: gentle grade bicycling), plus its restaurants and bars are terrific.

    A bit further down the road, just past Heber City, lies Robert Redford's Sundance Resort. Lots of relaxing, spa-type facilities, and fine dining.

    There's a wealth of things to see and do in Utah's Unitas and along the east side of the Wasatch Range.

    Enjoy planning and taking your Road Trip!
