Hike through canyons, sleep under the stars, carry everything on your back and traverse out onto a 1,488-foot rock formation. Join us as we go on a 20-mile backpacking trek through Zion National Park in Utah. We'll hike from the highest point in the park to the canyon floor, stopping at Angel's Landing to hike out to the world famous rock formation.

This trip includes a required pre-trip meeting where we will orient the group to equipment and techniques, and give detailed instructions on how to pack for the trip. If you have an interest in learning backpacking and back-country living skills, and would like to visit this unique national park, this is the trip for you!

Exertion level: High. No backpacking experience necessary, but must be able to hike 10 miles per day and be comfortable with heights.
