Need help with itinerary for trips to parks in Arizona and Utah

Jump to last reply

We are two adults (late 30's) with plans to travel to the Grand Canyon for the first time and also visit surrounding areas in October for nine days. I have a rough outline of our itinerary but am somewhat lost as to how best to fill two of the days. I was thinking Grand Staircase but yet also would love to do The Narrows hike in Zion. We don't want to spend our vacation in the car, so I have tried to limit the driving as much as possible. I have previously visited Arches and Canyonlands.
Itinerary:
Day 1: land in Phoenix in evening, drive immediately to Sedona
Day 2: Sedona
Day 3: leave Sedona for Monument Valley
Day 4: Monument Valley
Day 5: leave Monument Valley for ???
Day 6: ????
Day 7: drive from ??? to South Rim
Day 8: South Rim
Day 9: drive from South Rim to Phoenix
I would appreciate any and all ideas as to where to spend our open days, suggestions on hotels, hikes, routes to follow, etc. We have hotels in Sedona (Enchantment), Monument Valley (Valley View) and GC (Maswik) booked. Thanks for your help!!
