The town of Springdale, Utah is best known as the gateway to Zion National Park. But while it’s certainly true that Zion is the town’s crowning jewel, there’s plenty more to see and do beyond the trails of this iconic park.
With a year-round population of just over 500 people, Springdale manages to maintain its small-town charm. But it also plays host to a variety of services and attractions for visitors, including stores, art galleries, restaurants, visitor centers, e-bike rentals, and more.
At Greater Zion E-Bikes, we think that the best way to experience all that Springdale has to offer is on an e-bike rental.
