Zion National Park is one of the most adventurous and exciting parks in the United States. The park is a fragile landscape where you will see beautiful red rock formations, the Virgin River, and a wide array of desert animals and plants. Mormon pioneers settled in the area and named it Zion which means “promised land or a place of safety and refuge”. You feel like you’re in a sanctuary within the desert. Peace and solitude is what you will experience within the canyon walls.
Best ATV and Jeep Trails Near Zion National Park
Red Canyon (Peek-a-boo Canyon)
In Red Canyon , red sandstones will grab your attention as you enter the Canyon. This is not what you expect to see in a National Forest. In Red Canyon the numerous red hoodoos line the road instead of filling an amphitheater. Red Canyon is a section of Utah's Dixie National Forest located along Scenic Byway 12, just 13 miles from Bryce Canyon National Park. It requires you to pass through this hoodoo laden section of the forest to get to Bryce Canyon from the west.
Casto Canyon Trail
Casto Canyon is like a miniature Bryce Canyon. Spires of orange rock rise above you on the canyon walls, among pine and cedar. All except for 2 miles of fairly technical singletrack, the trail is an ATV path that's easy to ride. The orange rocks on the walls of Casto Canyon (and of Bryce Canyon) are formed of Claron-formation limestone. This limestone was deposited at the bottom of a large fresh-water lake about 40 million years ago, before the plateau area was lifted up above the valleys of the Great Basin.
Coral Pink Sand Dunes
Located in Southern Utah, not far from the main destinations of the Southwest, are the Coral Pink Sand Dunes. The Coral Pink Sand Dunes are tall, stunning, coral-colored sand dunes that are especially breathtaking at sunrise and sunset. The pink sand that makes this place unique is due to the erosion of the sandstone by the wind, which has been blowing between the Moquith and Moccasin Mountains for almost 15,000 years, detaching grains of sand from the sandstone rocks and depositing them in this valley.
The Barracks Trail is a 19.7 mile point-to-point trail located near Kanab, Utah that features a river and is rated as moderate. The Barracks trail is the perfect way to spend a day going across the lower sandy trails north of the Coral Pink Sand Dune area. The trail will take you along the White Cliffs and is made up mostly of sand, trees, and river crossings. The trail will cross the Virgin river over 20 times. The northern portion is a fun trail through a beautiful canyon.
Elephant Butte Trail
Elephant Butte is the highest point within Arches National Park—at 5653 feet above sea level—rising over 600 feet above the road. Elephant Butte is a popular climbing destination, and is considered an easy climb as far as technical routes go. The butte itself is a collection of sandstone fins, arches and sandy valleys. The route to the top feels more like a maze than a climbing route.
