Kanab is beautiful this time of year.  The afternoons are warm, and the nights are cool. The mild temperatures are perfect for enjoying a wide range of recreation and exploring everything that this magical area has to offer. The Grand Plateau Lodge is a perfect Kanab lodge for exploring and playing in this spectacular outdoor recreation paradise. Here are a few of our favorite recreation opportunities around Kanab in the early spring.

Bryce Canyon National Park is amazing any time of the year, but the early spring may be our favorite time of the year at this spectacular national park.  There are a few different reasons we love this time of year.  The first is the early spring often gets small snowstorms and the snow on the red rock spires and formations is some of the most gorgeous scenery you will ever see.  The other reason we love this time of year is the lack of crowds.

Zion National Park is another spectacular national park that is just north of Kanab.  We love Zion National Park year-round, but early spring is one of our favorite times of the year for many of the same reasons as we love Bryce Canyon in spring. The crowds are small, and the light snow can create some of the most amazing scenery you have ever seen.

White pocket is an amazing area just southeast of Kanab that is accessible by ATV or high-clearance four-wheel drive vehicles. It has spectacular sandstone scenery and formations and is a quiet area due to the rough road and time of year.

Buckskin Gulch and Wire Pass Trail is one of the most spectacular slot canyons in the world.  Many visitors comment that it is the most breathtaking slot canyon they have ever hiked. In the early spring the visitors are minimal, and the cool weather is great if you have a coat and watch the weather.

We hope to see you soon in Kanab for some outdoor adventure. Grand Plateau Lodge and Resort is perfect for any size group and is the best Kanab lodge for your southern Utah adventure!
