Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon in 4 1/2 Days?

Jump to last reply

We will be traveling to Las Vegas in early October. While we are in the area, we wanted to take in as many of the nearby national parks as we can. We will leave Vegas around noon on a Sunday and need to be back in Vegas on the following Thursday night to make our flights on Friday. I would prefer not to just drive into the parks, get out of the car at a lookout point, and move on. I would like to do some short day hikes while we are there. So the question is this: can this itinerary be done in 4 1/2 days, or are we packing too much in? If we have to give up one of the parks, which should it be? Each seem to have their positives and negatives, with the Grand Canyon having the largest negative in that the nearest lodging to the North Rim seems to be about 45 miles away in Jacob Lake. The other two have lodging nearby.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Cody
