Look the map

In this section you’ll discover the spots you can stop in the canyon. If you want some of the secrets don’t forget to ask us when you come to pick up your bike. Feel free to download the map as a National Park hiking guide. Since you’re on an E-bike you won’t be stuck waiting in lines.

Zion Peddler

Conveniently located only 0.4 miles from the entrance with plenty of parking. No need to hassle with parking anywhere else in Springdale. If you want to catch the city Shuttle we are close to stop #2

Pedestrian Entrance

Bikes are not allowed to ride through the drive in entrance so you must go through the pedestrian entrance. There is a National Park ticket kiosk to show your pass or purchase one. We’ll make sure you know how to get here before you head out.

Pa'rus Trail

This biking/hiking trail starts at the canyon visitor center and goes to canyon junction. This allows riders to avoid riding on the canyon road with pedestrian traffic. The trail is an underrated one in Zion Canyon. It’s a gorgeous trail to ride on during golden hour in the evening. I highly recommend that experience. It’s not as good in the morning. There are also many quaint spots to enjoy sitting by the river.

Canyon Junction

This is the spot bikes enter the gated section of the canyon closed off to cars. From here on up to the top it’s just you and the shuttles. Canyon junction has been made famous by the iconic photos taken of the Watchman over the Virgin river.

Court of the Patriarchs

This stop is one that people rarely stop at. I would highly recommend exploring this part of Zion Canyon. It’s especially pretty in the morning with the early light hitting the mountains just right. There’s also the benefit of very small crowds at this stop.

The Lodge

The lodge is a lovely spot to lounge on some nice grass surrounded by the many deer munching on the grass. There is food here at the lodge if you need to snag lunch in the canyon. From this spot you can hike the middle and lower emerald pools trails but I wouldn’t recommend either of those hikes. I would instead recommend hiking the Kayenta trail from the Grotto to Emerald pools trail. I’ll elaborate on that in the next section.

The Grotto

The Grotto has a lot going for it. Yes it’s where the famous Angels landing hike starts. I would recommend one of two things. My first recommendation is starting Angels landing at` 4pm to avoid the crowds and enjoy the evening light bathing the canyon in shades of gold, orange, and red. The second would be to leave earlier than we open. If you would like to explore this option please call us and discuss over night rentals.

All of that aside, I HIGHLY recommend doing West rim bottom up day hike. It’s one of my favorite hikes in the park, and yes I enjoy it more than Angels Landing. There won’t be anyone up there. Yeah, seriously! (If you’re interested do some google research or ask us and we’ll happily share). Finally, there’s a trail called Kayenta that heads over to the emerald pools which is substantially better than either of the emerald pools trails leaving from the Lodge. So if you’re wanting to see the pools make sure to use Kayenta.

Temple of Sinawava

This is where you’ll start your journey into The Narrows. It’s an incredible hike but I would highly recommend taking at least a wooden stick which we have on supply for $5 a day or going to one of the outfitters to grab a full set of gear including Neoprene socks and Narrows boots. If you’re not doing the narrows hike the riverside walk is still a great trail to see how the canyon shrinks down around you. It will be busy but I think it’s still a worth while hike. Shuttle lines can be extremely long here so you’ll be thrilled to have a bike.
