Activity Ideas

Hiking, Biking, 4 wheeling. Leave your car in the public parking area across from Rubys Inn and ride the free shuttle into the park. They stop at a number of locations about every hour or so; so you can get off and hike a trail and then get back on the shuttle and go to another location. You can also take the free three-hour Rainbow Point narrated bus tour that is much easier and more informative than driving and parking throughout the park; reservations are required. There are too many hiking opportunities to list, as well as a 6.2 mile shared use trail, that accommodates bicycles, pedestrians, dogs, etc. There are also a number of hiking trails in the nearby and beautiful Red Canyon. Four wheeling opportunities abound in this area, as well as scenic drives. Go horseback riding.
