Can you do Zion and Bryce in one day?
Subsequently, one may also ask, how long is the drive from Zion to Bryce Canyon?
2 hours without stops can be done but it's not recommended. You should include the east section of Zion on your drive to Bryce meaning you can take the Canyon OVerlook trail and stop at Checkerboard Mesa on the way out so no need to do those as part of the two days in Zion.
Similarly, is one day enough for Zion National Park? But we don't recommend visiting Zion and Bryce in a single day. If you are not in a rush, I recommend spending at least a full day in each of the parks. It only takes an hour (50 miles) to get to Zion Canyon from Bryce Canyon, and we would enter the park from the east entrance.
Likewise, people ask, which is better to visit Zion or Bryce?
Zion National Park: Pros – Zion is substantially bigger than Bryce Canyon. And it has more variety, so there is a lot to see in the park. There are also more trails. This is especially important if you are planning a multi-day vacation.
Is one day enough for Bryce Canyon National Park?
Bryce Canyon is compact, at least for a National Park. One day is all you need to explore this park. With one day, you can hike through a garden of hoodoos, take in the view from multiple viewpoints, and thoroughly explore the park. If you have less than one day, that's OK too.
