The Perfect Zion Ponderosa Itinerary: A Guest Experience.

“Four nights & five days at Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort was the perfect amount of time.

Day One:

We arrived at the resort which has several different lodging options, including glamping, log cabins and tiny homes. We chose to book a beautiful vacation home, big enough to fit multiple families. The house was amazing. It had all of the modern comforts and plenty of room for everybody. 

After we picked our rooms and dropped our bags, we jumped in a jeep and took off straight from the resort for a Sunset Jeep Tour. I've been to Zion before. But I've never seen it like this. 

Day Two: 

We were ready to go into the park. We drove 15 minutes from the house and we were already to the east gate of Zion National Park. The kids love hiking and looking for wildlife, we even spotted a herd of bighorn sheep!

We ended our day with a guided horseback ride back at the ranch. The horses and the guides had the whole family feeling like they belonged in the old west. 

Day Three:

Was all about adventure! We drove ATVs through the desert, splashed through a creek, and arrived at a slot canyon. If you've never been to a slot canyon before it's unlike any other place on earth. You kind of have to see it to believe it. We relaxed the rest of the day, and enjoyed the full jacuzzi and pool, and so much more.

Day Four:

We went for a little road trip to Bryce Canyon. Just 75 miles away! It was a different kind of breathtaking. How cool is it to see two national parks on the same trip!
We ended the day back at the house. A little campfire and some family time. 

Day Five:

On the last day, we weren't ready to leave just yet, we heard the best view of Zion was from Observation Point. We headed out for one last hike and WOW, I had never been so awestruck by an overlook.

We could never see all there is at Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort, but five days & four nights gave us a good start - and we can't wait to come back.”
