Red Mountain Resort questions

I think that I may take my wife to the Red Mtn Resort for a relaxing couple of days at the end of Sept. We've never been to UT. We aren't much into guided hikes or group fitness classes but the resort still looks great. Can I rent a high end road bicycle in the area? Is the road riding good in that area? How is the hiking in Zion if you're from back east? Thanks

No matter where you are from the hiking in Zion is great. There is something for everyone.

A popular bike ride from Red Mountain is in Snow Canyon. Either the Whiptail trail or the West Mt trail.

I'm thinking Red Mt has bikes and sponsors trips there.

There is great biking in the area. The Desert Rat is a sporting goods store in St George that can answer your questions. A guy who works/worked there (2010) was working on a book about bike rides, or at least is extremely knowledgeable. I think they may have maps. Also the Bonneville Cycling Club is based in Salt Lake, but has a group in Cedar City that could help. I hope you can make it to Bryce Canyon NP. It's amazing, and there are miles of great road biking there. I've been to Red Mtn. Great food. Interesting you won't be doing their classes or guided hikes; that's a lot of what you'll be paying for. Snow Canyon is a great place for hiking, and biking, too. There is also great mountain biking in the area.

The Red Mountain Spa is located in a beautiful area at the Mouth of Snow Canyon and would be nice to stay at. There are biking trails all over that area. They would likely know where you could rent bikes in the area, im sure thats available since its a popular area for biking and hiking.

I believe they still even offer tours to Zion as well as Pinevalley which is also fun to visit.

The Resort is also very close to Tuacahn Amphitheater, which has some good live plays and music ect in an outdoors threatre setting which is fun.

Hopefully you are aware that St George is over 1 hour away from Zion National Park which has some of the most beautiful scenery in Utah imo.

There are plenty of easy hikes in Zion. There is also a shuttle that takes you to the various hiking trails so you can get on and off as a bus stops in various areas many times during the day either comming or going.

Just so your aware, you can also stay quite close to Zion National Park. Some of the resorts there are right near the entrance to the Canyon.

Heres more info from a recent thread on thing to do in St George and ivins which is where the Red Mountain Spa is located. See reply #1 of this thread

Happytotrip - good advice. Honestly, if it was me, if I wasn't going to do the Red Mtn activities, I would stay in or near Zion and/or Bryce NP.
