Bryce, Zion, Arches, Canyonlands in one week? In October?

Jump to last reply

I apologize if this has been answered in previous posts, but I've been looking and can't seem to find what I need to know.

First, we are a couple in our mid-50s, fit enough, and we like to hike, but we're old enough now to want to limit it to relatively short (five miles or less) and relatively flat (like only a couple hundred feet in elevation). Not so much into rock climbing any more!

We have a week (as much as eight days) in mid-October, probably the third week. Is it possible to do Bryce/Zion and then also Arches/Canyonlands in that amount of time? And do them justice? I don't know how much time is needed to devote to each one, or to the multitude of things that lie in between. Besides the moderate hiking, we're big on sunrises, night skies, and like that.

If this is doable, which order should we do them in, given the time of year? I know that Bryce is higher, and thus colder, so should maybe come first? Or does that not matter as much as a logical route? Or is there something better to do than those four?

And, is it better to fly into/out of Salt Lake City or Las Vegas? Or, fly into one and out of the other? We've been to Vegas and don't need any time there, but haven't been to SLC, not that that is a huge tourist draw or us -- but might want to see something. We like to keep active and do a lot on vacation, but we don't want to kill ourselves...

Thanks very much!
