Need to stretch your legs a bit? Join our Naturalist/Instructor as we hike the East Rim Trail to Deertrap Mountain or Cable Mountain and back. Either hike affords fantastic views in all directions. This is one for seasoned hikers looking to expand their knowledge base while they enjoy a longer hike. Along the way, we’ll talk geology, botany, some biology, and desert ecosystems. We’ll pass through several of Zion’s geologic layers, and enjoy incredible rim vistas. We’ll stop at a nice spot somewhere on the rim for our picnic lunch. Enjoy one of Zion’s premier hikes and learn a lot about the desert you love along the way. Limited to 8 participants.
