When you visit Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort for your summer vacation, one thing you won’t be is bored. Just take a look at this list of fun activities offered by Zion Ponderosa:
The Zion National Park region is one of the premiere places in the country for canyoneering – in fact, the term “canyoneering” was virtually coined around Zion. Canyoneering can be a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, or you can get hooked and want to do it over and over. Either way, if you’ve got the desire, we’ve got the goods. Our experienced canyoneering guides lead full or half-day adventures, complete with gear and training. Zion Ponderosa canyoneering adventures are filled with beautiful scenery, hiking, multiple rappels and down climbs into some of the most beautiful slot canyons in the Zion area. And since we’re always adding new slot canyons to our guided tours, you can experience a different canyoneering adventure every time!
Zion Ponderosa Jeep tours offer an exhilarating off-roading experience backed by experienced drivers and guides who have your adventure satisfaction at heart. Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort has an extensive trail network around Zion National Park, with views of Checkerboard Mesa, Jolley Gulch and more. Wildlife sightings are common in the surrounding juniper and pine forests, and we’ve got over 200 miles of scenic and challenging four-wheel trails. New this year, Sunset Jeep Tours Guided Jeep tours provide a spectacular view of the setting sun over the vast expanse of Zion Ponderosa’s 4,000 acres. Jeep tours are great for all ages and abilities.
Fly with ease over Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort on our zip line — easily one of our most popular activities. You’ll climb stairs to the top of our activity barn, where you’ll be equipped with a safety harness and helmet. Then we’ll hook you up and zip you off for the thrill of a lifetime! Our zip line covers a distance longer than a football field…and we’re pretty sure you’ll be back for another round as soon as you’re done!
The Zion region is home to some of the most scenic horseback trails in the west, inviting history and harkening back to the Old West. You can see this beautiful region on horseback right on and around Zion Ponderosa. Once a pioneer logging camp, our ranch resort still has rugged trails perfect for horseback riding. Our horses are chosen and trained to match the wide variety of guests that visit Zion Ponderosa. Let your wrangler know if you have any past riding experience so he can team you up with the best horse possible. We also offer short, hand held horseback rides for younger kids, and a wagon ride/Dutch oven dinner experience that’s perfect for the whole family.
We recommend early reservations for our scheduled adventures, as these activities fill up fast during peak season. Give us a call, or make reservations here.
