E-biking the Zion Canyon in Zion National Park
In the last few years, e-bikes have become a very popular way to experience the Zion Canyon. E-bike rental shops have popped up all over Springdale & surrounding towns, making it easy for visitors to skip the shuttle lines and ride into the Zion Canyon on an e-bike, free to take in the canyon at their own pace.
I have been curious to try this popular new activity in Zion, but for some reason, I was hesitant. Maybe I thought that renting an e-bike would be a hassle. Perhaps I thought it would be too expensive, or maybe I thought e-biking would be too hard for me to figure out.
In all honesty, I did try biking into the canyon on a regular bike a few years ago, and I discovered after just 10 minutes that I couldn’t hack it. That was a huge blow to my ego…..haha! What if I still couldn’t do it even on an e-bike?…..yikes!
After stopping and talking to Luke at Greater Zion E-bike Rentals in La Verkin, just around the corner from my house, I discovered that I could rent affordable e-bikes that could fold up and fit in the back of my Toyota 4Runner……what!!! How easy it that!

So the next day, my partner Eric and I rented two e-bikes, folded them up, drove the 30-minute drive up to Zion, and biked the Zion Canyon under the moonlight. It was absolute magic.
