Zion Shuttle Service: Eastern Region Trailheads

ZionEastShuttlesEastern Region Trailheads are organized around the Chamberlain's Ranch shuttle route, the route all Top-Down Narrows hikers take. Along the way, we service these additional trailheads: East Rim, Englestead Hollow, East Mesa (Mystery Canyon), Birch Hollow, Orderville Canyon. We also offer custom pick-ups and drop-offs by customer request.

We try to organize an efficient shuttle schedule, enabling the most hikers to get to their desired trailhead promptly while also minimizing shuttle prices and our carbon footprint. The time restrictions indicated in each tab help us manage this efficiency effort. Please know that exact shuttle arrival times are impossible to predict, as weather and traffic conditions, as well as customer timeliness, sometime affect our scheudle.

If you have special needs, or questions we have not addressed here, please contact us and let us know how we can help.

Our shuttle drops Englestead canyoneers off at Gifford Ranch, a public access jeep road parallel to Birch Hollow, 2.8 miles from Pondersosa Ranch. This is the easiest route to the head of Englestead. You have to know the route to the canyon in advance, however, as it is not obvious from the drop-off point. Check out Tom Jones's Zion: Canyoneering book before your trip.
