Zion, Bryce and Grand Canyon for avid hikers and cyclists

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have 8 to 10 days to hike and bike in Zion, Bryce Canyon and the Grand Canyon starting on August 28(from Vegas) . Would also live to see Havasu falls, but we don't own camping gear and won't be purchasing any before this trip. The only reservation we have for lodging is September 1-3 at Bryce, but this can be changed. I've checked lodges at all locations and all have limited availability on the exact same days, so we will be staying outside the park in most places.

I'd love some advice on the following:
1. Any reasonably cost effective ways to see Havasu falls.
2. How many days to spend in each place, particularly Zion and Bryce.
3. North or south rim of Grand Canyon, or both, in terms of hiking options? (I realize they have different strong points; i am looking for good old personal opinions)
4. Good cycling routes.

Thanks!
