Head to Bryce Canyon National Park from Zion via the Mount Carmel Highway. On your road trip to Bryce Canyon National Park, you can stop at the Canyon Overlook Trail.

Bryce Canyon

When exploring Bryce Canyon I highly recommend hiking the Navajo Loop Trail which will take you down into the canyon, right among all the orange hoodoos.

Visit Goblin Valley State Park & the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument on route to Moab, Utah. Also, on Route 24, you can drive through Capitol Reef National Park.

Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands has two main park sections – Island in the Sky and The Needles – about 60 miles apart. Also, be sure to stop at Dead Horse Point State Park.

Arches National Park

Don't miss the famous Delicate Arch hike when in Arches. I recommend hiking just prior to sunset and giving yourself 1 hour. Some other trails are Balanced Rock & The Windows.

Head to Page, Arizona with a stop through Monument Valley along the way. Once in Page, visit the Horseshoe Bend which overlooks the Colorado River.
