Zion & Bryce in the Fall

Jump to last reply

We are an elderly couple from New Jersey contemplating a vacation to Zion and Bryce National Parks in the Fall. It appears that the closest major airports are Salt Lake City and Las Vegas. We do not want to take the long drive from either place. I have found that one can get a flight from Salt Lake to Cedar City and rent a car there. Is that the best way or is there a better idea. We probably would be just as well off without a car in Zion as cars are not allowed in the park, but would need one to get to either park and to travel between them.
We do not mind spending money if necessary. Is it better to stay at the lodge in Zion park or at one of the places in Springdale? Likewise at Bryce?
We are elderly but in reasonably good shape. We like to walk but can not climb or manage difficult trails. Are there enough reasonably easy trails in both parks?
If we were to spend 7 to 8 days, how should we divide out time between the 2 parks?
Any other advice would be greatly appreciated
Nancylee
