Ways to Get Off the Beaten Path in Southern Utah

Many of the people who travel to southern Utah are looking to see the hoodoos at Bryce Canyon National Park or walk the rim along the canyon at Zion National Park. While these are all worthwhile adventures, there are some less popular things to do that allow you to truly experience the beauty and wonder of Utah without the crowds.

At Parry Lodge, we always tell our guests that they can get off the beaten path by checking out these attractions and activities:

Ziplining in Kanab

Kanab Zipline offers visitors to southern Utah the opportunity to get off the path entirely, and to go sailing through the air. This zipline course allows you to ride over the breathtaking canyons in Kanab, reaching speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. As you travel 1,100 feet from one edge of the canyon to the other, you will enjoy a bird's eye view of the region's natural beauty. There's no better way to experience Kanab.

Kayaking in Sand Hollow State Park

Sand Hollow State Park is the perfect place to enjoy southern Utah from the water. The warm water reservoir at this park provides kayakers with a calm, peaceful spot for kayaking. As you glide through the water, you will maneuver your way through red rock canyons. While you'll likely pack all of the gear you need for a day on the kayak, you also will want to make sure to bring your camera. There's plenty of photo opportunities on this adventure.

Sandboarding at Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park

Not far from the infamous Zion National Park is Coral Pink Sand Dunes National Park, where visitors will be in awe of the pink sand mountains that define this area. Rather than snowboarding on the mountains, guests can sandboard on top of these dunes. It's a unique excursion that can't be enjoyed anywhere else, making it one of our favorite things to do in southern Utah.

When you stay at Parry Lodge, you will be in the center of everything that southern Utah has to offer. Find out more about our amenities and the nearby attractions by contacting us today.
