I love hiking. The hard work, the solitude, and especially the views. Exploring a new trail can be a real thrill. As Zion continues to be more and more crowded, I’ve turned more of my attention to finding amazing hiking options outside the park. Eagle Crags has been on my list for awhile simply because it is so close to the National Park that it offers an experience and view like it’s in the park without actually being a Zion hike.
Located just outside of the Zion National Park boundaries in the Kolob Terrace section of the park is a pile of rocks that our guide affectionately called his “jungle gym”. That description wasn’t far off. It really felt like we were at a naturally occurring jungle gym designed for both kids and adults alike. Here are a few reasons I would recommend you check out Lambs Knoll with Zion Rock and Mountain Guides.
If you go to Hawaii, you give surfing a try. If you go to Costa Rica, you try zip lining through the jungle. But what about when you come to St. George, Utah? I can tell you after living here for a few years that the answer to that question is two fold: mountain biking and canyoneering. Today, let’s take a look at mountain biking and why you have to give it a try when staying in St. George.
