Lehigh River Gorge trail, mostly downgrade with a shuttle to take you to the starting point. Not sure exact location, though. Did it years ago. About an hour from Scranton according to Google Maps.

After a LONG time with Delta, they say they cannot book it if it's not in their system! The rep eventually found the flight, but could not get anyone to price it out. Anyone have any experience with this? The CS rep said they can only book a VA flight that is "marketed" by Delta.

Is this bookable on Delta? Should it show up on Delta's website if it's available on Virgin Atlantic?

ask them to waive the service fee
+1. They waived it after I told them it was not changeable online.

want to stay away from strip and action.  Looking for place to sleep, daven close by, eat something and make the drive to Zion National park.  Vegas just a resting point for me. any suggestions or recommendations on hotels?
I found Henderson to work well for those needs.

Many travel websites report that because things are booked so far in advance around the national parks, there are usually last minute cancellations by people whose plans change.

Doing Hoover on Monday is because I end up staying in Las Vegas that day to meet the minyan on Tues in Bryce. Option 2 is a loop back to Las Vegas instead of out of PHX.
I appreciate that it is a lot of driving, that's why I am trying to find the balance(for us) between hitting the major sites and having an enjoyable vacation!

@Dawie

 I did similar but stayed in Page AZ
If you could find a minyan there that would make the most sense
LAS to Bryce is 4 hours
Bryce to Page under 3 hours  (Cool place a drop off the road is the Pink Sand Dunes)
(Horseshoe Bend, Lake Powell and Glen Canyon as well as Antelope Canyon are in Page)
You also have to book way in advance to get even the Lower Antelope Canyon, upper is likely all booked for the summer
Page to Flagstaff is 2:15
So  you would do the Canyon one day and Sedona the next

In your itinerary
Sun night in LAS
Monday 4 hour drive to Bryce
4.5 hour drive to Flagstaff
tuesday in Grand canyon 1.5 hr each way tues night in Flagstaff
Wed in page 2.15 each way Wed Night in Flagstaff
Thursday in Sedona
Fly back Thursday night

Definitely doable with 2 drivers
 

Looks like some of you disagree.
And I do not have 8 hours of driving on one day in either of the itineraries...
