Grant's Gulch was so much more than advertised. We felt right at home the first time we walked through the door. Centrally located to not only Zion Park, but also the Kolob Canyon and Kolob Terrace Road. A number of state parks around aren't far away. Suggest you head to LeVerkin for groceries at Davis's, shop on Tuesday and get a nice discount on gas. Noodles and Pizza served very good pizza, the Bit N Spur was great. Be sure to get their homemade peanut butter pie, delicious! Harry and John were very responsive to the couple of questions we had. I would definitely recommend Grant's Gulch to anyone looking to vacation in the area and we hope that we will be able to return. This was, without any doubt, the best homeaway experience we've had.
Set in the midst of world-famous Zion National Park, the remains of the once-bustling Grafton now stand as a ghost town in honor of the hard work that so characterized the early settlers. Grafton 8767 s overwhelming beauty was not lost on Hollywood scenes in at least three movies, including Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, starring Robert Redford and Paul Newman, were filmed at the site in 6969.
Hwy 9 is the major road providing access to Zion National Park. It winds past the park visitor center and museum, and past many famous Zion landmarks. It provides access to Zion Canyon (accessible by shuttle only during the tourist season) and then goes through the park's mile-long tunnel. It cuts through the park's Checkerboard Mesa area and then ends at Hwy 89 at Mt Carmel Junction.
When I attended Southern Utah University, Red Cliffs was our go-to getaway on spring days that were just too beautiful to spend in class. Today Red Cliffs is better than ever, with improved trails and facilities.

We also recommend the farmers market at the Bit n Spur each Saturday and the Hirishi produce stand on the main road to town.
Companies and executives trust Utah Private Car to meet their ground transportation needs with a wide range of executive car and concierge corporate services for Utah.
Both safaris depart from Majestic View Lodge in Springdale. The 7-hour 8775 Outback 8776 Safari explores the mesas overlooking Zion from the south side of the Virgin River, and features the old pioneer town of Grafton. The 8-hour 8775 Mesa Vista 8776 Safari follows North Creek toward the Kolob Terrace, then explores Smith Mesa. This area provides spectacular panoramas which stretch from West Temple to the Kolob Fingers at the northern end of the park.
Snow Canyon State Park is a red rock paradise for hikers, bikers and sightseers. This small, but scenic park is surrounded by new neighborhoods, but once you 8767 re inside, they feel a million miles away.
