Zion National Park is located near Springdale, Utah, USA and offers some unbelievable views of natural rock formations and picturesque landscapes. Some 220 square miles (570 km^2) of explorable land was set aside as a national park in 1919. Zion Canyon is 15 miles (24km) long and in some parts half a mile deep. The canyon is made up of beautiful reddish tan-colored Navajo Sandstone. This ride features the "Scenic Drive" section which is closed to cars, but is open to bikes and park shuttles. Bikes must pull over and stop for the shuttles as they will not pass a moving bike. This ride is an out and back so you can see the natural beauty from both directions. This ride is also a loop in case you need a bit more distance.More Info
