We have 2 nights booked in the watchman campground in August (although we wished it was 3 ...)
We will be driving in from Page on day 1 - and plan to get to zion by 11 ish - depending on stops on the way.
Whilst we are in zion we would like to attempt some of the narrows, experience canyoneering with a reputable company, and do some walking - rim trail, emerald pools, riverside on way to narrows.
I can't work out an order - but as we have to book the canyoneering - and decide on a full day or a half ( my children really want to do a whole day....) I would really appreciate any trip advisor pearls of wisdom please!
also do we need narrows rental gear for august ?
I was thinking
12th - leave page after breakfast and drive to zion. Book canyoneering for 1pm this afternoon.
eve set up camp after 1/2 day canyoneering. collect gear for narrows walk.
13th - head to riverside walk first thing in the morning on shuttle bus. walk as much of the narrows as seems a good idea.
back to campsite - maybe an evening stroll on Pa Rus
14th - tent down and pack up. Do Emerald pools trail and rim trails.
head onto Bryce....
We head on to Bryce on the third day - but weren't planning to leave until early afternoon. (now i wish we had the last night there but unsurprisingly no availability for another night at the watchman.
Thanks for all your suggestions..
