Toxic Algae Bloom in the Virgin River:

You may have heard about the toxic algae bloom which has been affecting the Virgin River. The main recommendation from the national park has been to avoid submerging in the water or drinking the water. By following these precautions many hikers have been able to continue to do the hike without additional reported issues. More info: https://www.nps.gov/zion/planyourvisit/conditions.htm

Reservations are available for the first 40 regular bikes each day. Remaining bikes are rented on a walk-in basis beginning at 7am.

Tubing the Virgin River:

We will not be renting tubes for the 2022 season but will have inflatable tubes that can be purchased. Prices range from about $20-$40. The river is especially low during late summer and tubing will involve walking through many shallow sections. It is not a lazy river float!
