Experience the beauty of Zion by traveling the scenic trails on a bike. Bring your own bike, rent one right outside the park, or join a guided tour to give you the full experience of Zion. Shuttles are equipped with bike racks, so you can still ride the shuttles to any part of the park and bike your way back.
The Pa’rus trail in the park is the best trail for biking, which is a paved trail that runs along the Virgin River, providing stunning views of the monolithic rocks in the park. Located between the Zion Canyon Visitor Center and the Canyon Junction, the trail is about 1.75 miles long. It is advised to avoid biking fast, as pedestrians also walk along the trail, as well as turns, bridges, and wildlife that bicyclists need to watch out for. During wet weather, the bridges can be slick.
Cyclist are allowed to ride along other roads in Zion, although other roads do have significant traffic from shuttles and cars going through the park. The only stretch of road cyclists are not allowed to travel along is the the Mt. Carmel Tunnel in Zion. This mile-long tunnel is off-limits for cyclists due to accidents in the past.
