Bryce/Zion on October 18-20?

Jump to last reply

I'm in the process of planning a trip to Arches/Canyonlands and Bryce/Zion and as much in between as we can fit in in eight or nine days.

The current itinerary has us in Bryce on October 18. A friend tells me that that is too late -- roads/trails may be closed because of snow, or require chains on the roads. Is that a real concern? Or do they rent cars out of Salt Lake City with chains? Would it make much of a difference if I reversed the itinerary and visited Bryce at the beginning of the trip, or October 12?

I was taken with the idea of the full moon walk at Bryce (October 17 and 18) and the fact that I could stay in the park by then (earlier dates are booked already). But, have to weigh those against snowstorms!

Thanks! And I issue a blanket apology for being so uninformed about the weather.
