Zion National Park - Shuttle Alternatives? on 09/23/2013 16:46:58 MDT Print View

Good day all!

Taking some of the brats with me for a week in the field... As one segment, we're going to backpack the west rim trail. We have a campsite in the park at Watchman campground, and we have our permit for the back country... but I just found out that using the carrier shuttle service from the park to the trailhead is going to cost me $160 bucks for four of us! That's a bit much for my wallet and I don't want to just day hike all the nooks and crannies........... Anyone find an alternative? It's a one way shot from the campground to the lava point trailhead.... That is enough to darn near pay for a shelter etc... Are cabbies out of springdale any cheaper? Hints? Thanks in advance!

Is your hike going to end up back in the canyon? You could take your own vehicle to the trailhead.

If so, just buy a single shuttle ticket at the end of the hike and go pick up your vehicle and return to your family.
