Just wanted to share few more places , hikes we did on our trip. May be you will get ideas and might like to do. I did research abt places around Zion, Vegas before leaving and if it helps anyone , wonderful.
Turtle head hike – Near Vegas. There’s a red rock canyon park and it’s very pretty too. You can do scenic drive or hike some trail. It gets hot so go early and check weather if you are hiking.
Near Zion east entrance , we went to belly of dragon. Small little kind of cave.
Red hollow slot canyon – this is also near east entrance and close to belly of dragon . 10-15 mins drive between two. This place was hard to find and we would have never found on our own. We saw a car and asked lady. She just said follow me and we did.
It was 1 mile walk and then we walked inside which was little adventure. Big rocks and hardly any space to squeeze through. I had to be pushed , pulled up but it was fun.
Sand caves – We got late so skipped it but it is around slot canyon.
If you enjoyed, plz like so I know I am putting something useful here .
Thank you for reading.
