Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Accommodations & Service Standards

While the Best Western Bryce Canyon Grand Hotel reflects the natural surroundings of the national park and provides unparalleled access to the best activities in the area, it is simpler than is typical of Backroads lodging. Overall, the service standards can seem slow and casual when compared with the hospitality found on other Backroads trips. Please note that internet and cell phone service are extremely limited throughout the parks.

Meals in National Parks, Forests and Surrounding Areas

The properties we use on this trip are chosen for their character and ideal location—they are not known for their food. Meals can be simple and menu options tend to lack variety. Please be aware that options for vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and low-carb meals will be especially limited and substitutions are rarely available.

Traffic

While Backroads strives to find roadways that are quiet and off the beaten track, some routes on this trip follow heavily trafficked roads. On Day 4 everyone shuttles to avoid a busier section of our route.

Interpretive Guides & Hiking Without Your Leaders
The National Park Service has many regulations on hiking. In Zion National Park they limit where you can hike when accompanied by your Backroads Trip Leaders. Your leaders will provide pre-walk briefings, maps and directions so you can explore certain trails on your own. In Bryce Canyon National Park, your leaders can hike with you but can't act as "interpretive guides." Throughout the trip, your leaders will give an orientation to the area's flora, fauna and terrain before your hikes. Thank you for helping us cooperate with each park's regulations.
