Two Cranes Inn is also just a 2 hour drive to Bryce Canyon National Park, 90 minutes to Cedar Breaks National Monument, less than 3 hours to Lake Powell, Grand Staircase-Escalante, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, and less than an hour from several other colorful state parks in the area, including Snow Canyon, Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Quail Creek, Sand Hollow, and several world class networks of mountain biking trails, including Gooseberry Mesa. We are two and a half hours from Las Vegas, where there are convenient and affordable shuttle services right to the area: (St George Shuttle and St George Express.) The Inn is less than an hour’s drive from either Saint George or Cedar City Airports.
