If you do the full hike I would rate it difficult. It is just under 11 miles and includes a lot of steep climbs and descents. Take plenty of food and water. We did it with a high of 40F and it kicked my wives...More

To maximize enjoyment I recommend riding the new Navajo rocks area trails off of road 313 for an intermediate slick rock experience (e.g. Rambin - Rocky Tops loop clockwise) before tackling this more challenging classic if some of your group hasn't experienced slick rock riding...More

This trail is tough and I wouldn't go when wet. You can bike or walk the trail, I did both as it was to hard for me to climb the rocks while biking. Pushing the bike uphill was a challange as well. Allow spare time,...More

Did this iconic mountain bike ride late in the morning in November, not too hot or crowded. Saw some e-bikes on this ride for the first time ever.

Slickrock is demanding and rewarding. You should bike it at sunset to enjoy the scenery. Bring tools and lots of water + a camera !

You can do it but you may want to save your energy for the trail. It is about 3 miles from downtown with some pretty good ascents.

I don't know if it's even possible to get to all those places by bus. Even if you could do it, you should be looking at renting a car. It really is the only way to go in order to best utilize your time and maximize your enjoyment of visiting national parks and other areas of natural beauty. You're looking at covering huge distances - Mesa Verde NP is actually in Colorado. How long is your trip? It's impossible to offer constructive comments on your itinerary without knowing this.

How much time do you have for this excursion? You are going to need a couple of weeks at least to fit in the stops you have mentioned. As for Zion and Bryce, I would absolutely include those parks on the itinerary. Each of the parks is different, so Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Moab, Zion and Bryce Canyon are all distinctly unique. I'm not sure that the bus is going to be a good option from LV into AZ and UT (but I have no experience with Greyhound). Your best bet is to rent a car...More
