Experience the rugged back roads, spectacular canyons, overlooks and scenic backcountry with a Zion Ponderosa Jeep tour. Sit back and enjoy the thrill-ride in one of our custom, open air, off-road cruisers as your expert guide drives you through a section of the magnificent Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. Get an up close look at the visible effects of erosion; our expert tour guides will even throw in lots of interesting facts about the unique history, geology, folklore and wildlife of the Grand Staircase, Dixie National Forest, and Zion National Park area.
Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort has an extensive trail network with access to Zion and Bryce National Parks, views of Checkerboard Mesa, Jolley Gulch and more. In fact, we’ve got over 200 miles of scenic four-wheel backcountry roads of varying lengths and terrain challenges! Wildlife sightings are common as you travel through juniper and pine forests — keep an eye out for frequently sighted deer, wild turkeys and rabbits. Bird sightings are also common, including big birds like turkey vultures, hawk and even eagle. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the massive California Condor known to fly around the Zion area from time to time.
One of our most popular guided Jeep tours follows a scenic course over rough terrain. You’ll experience the thrill of rock-crawling over boulders through narrow passageways with spectacular surrounding views. Although bear sightings are very rare, one of the fun highlights of this guided Jeep tour is a Ponderosa pine tree with bear claw scratches.
NEW! Zion Ponderosa is thrilled to offer a Sunset Jeep Cruise. Quickly becoming our most popular guided Jeep tour, the Sunset Jeep Cruise follows the Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort’s North Fork Road to our renowned on-site viewing spot, Pine Knoll. The Sunset Jeep Cruise leaves the Zion Ponderosa recreation barn an hour before sunset so you’ll arrive at Pine Knoll just in time to capture the western sunset over Zion Ponderosa’s vast expanse. Enjoy an ice cream as you watch the sun set over the horizon, for a delicious finish to a sweet adventure.
