There are beautiful roads throughout the park where road surfaces are smooth smooth, winding, with gorgeous canyons and cliffs all around you.  The popular part of the park, where most of the favored scenic spots are located, is the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. 

If you finish Zion Canyon and you are looking for more, try out the Kolob Terrace Road.  You will see fewer park visitors, cars, and the western side of the park- all to youself!  This road is much less frequented than Zion Canyon, and worth a good foray.  There will be a few steep climbs on this side; but where you go up, you will also come down!

There is not any mountain biking in the park.  If you wish to mountain bike in Utah, the area outside of Moab that is not National Park land will allow mountain biking, and is famous for it.  I know of no National Parks that allow mountain bikes off-road.

According to the Skywalk operators, which are not part of the National Parks Service, it is not necassary to book your tickets in advance.  Busy season in the Grand Canyon is not until summertime, so it is not likely you would be running into any crowds either way. 

Enjoy your trip to the Grand Canyon, it is a view you will never forget!

The Grand Teton National Park is open all year long with the exception of Christmas day.  The only available places available to stay inside of the park in October are camping sites.  I would recommend staying within the nearby town of Jackson. Travelocity has a lot of great deals for hotels in Jackson.  You can search their website by going to: http://www.travelocity.com.
