NP planning advice

Jump to last reply

Thanks to everyone for such great advice on here. I recently started planning a trip to Utah and want to get your advice on the best use of our time. 2 active adults, like to hike but not sure about Angels Landing and the huge dropoffs!
We are planning sometime in Sept, probably will go after Labor Day. Xtra vaca day would be nice but probably not worth the traffic. Leave from Portland OR. Drive through Boise, overnight somewhere around Salt Lake City maybe, then head into Zion (16 hr drive so most likely won't drive straight through). Once arriving we have 8 nights, could possibly add 1-2 more.
3 nights Zion Springdale, liking Desert Pearl
2 nights Bryce
Drive up Hwy 12, catch Goblin Valley along the way to Moab
3 nights Moab, Arches NP Hike and Bike maybe

Is this realistic? What am I missing? Should we go to Page and see Antelope Canyon? Is Canyonlands a day visit or just stay around Arches? I'm reading through hike suggestions for all the parkes and looking at pics now, so excited! Thank you.
