Utah parks and Grand Canyon itinerary opinions needed please!

Jump to last reply

Husband and I (early 60's, good health) are planning a trip to the Utah Nat. parks and the Grand Canyon, arriving from Ohio via Las Vegas, possibly in early September, for at least 10 days, but can add a day if needed. As we have never been to this part of the country, we don't want to under or overplan. Have always looked to these boards for excellent advice and ideas, so this is where I turned first! These are what our rough plans look like; would sincerely appreciate any suggestions, revisions or input:

day 1 arrive early in Vegas, rent car, drive to Springdale,hike in Zion, hotel in Springdale

day 2 hike in Zion, end of day drive to Bryce, hotel in or around Bryce

day 3 sunrise in Bryce Canyon, hike, drive highway 12, possible Escalante visit, hotel in Torrey

day 4 drive to Capital Reef, visit Goblin Valley, head to Arches, possible time to hike, hotel in Moab or Green River

day 5 hikes in Arches whole day, same hotel as day 4(Moab or Green River)

day 6 drive from Moab to Page, if time visit Antelope Canyon and/or Horsehoe Bend, hotel in Page

day 7 drive to Lake Powell, hikes and kayaking, Navajo Bridge, Page hotel in same as day 6

day 8 Drive to Grand Canyon, sightsee, hike, drive to and stay on south rim at Maswick Lodge

day 9 South rim of Grand Canyon, drive back to Vegas, overnight in Vegas

day 10 fly home

Thanks sooooo much!
