Join us in hiking some of the most famous and beautiful slot canyons in the world, and also visiting a few famous landmarks around Page, Arizona, like Horseshoe Bend.

We’ll drive to Page on Friday, April 24th, hike on Saturday and return on Sunday.

Howard will lead a 6-mile hike through Wire Pass and a section of Buckskin Gulch. Dan’s group will also hike Wire Pass, then proceed all the way through Buckskin Gulch to Paria Canyon and up the Paria River to the White House Trailhead. The scenery on both hikes is truly spectacular.

Although there’s a very low probability of flash flooding at this time of year, we’ll be monitoring the weather carefully and postponing the trip for two weeks (till May 8-10) if the forecast is threatening.

THE TRIP IS CURRENTLY FULL. CONTACT LEADER TO BE PLACED ON WAITING LIST.
