This 7-mile interpretive hike in the Zion Narrows is an opportunity to experience this dramatic area with one of our naturalist/instructors who will discuss its geology, plants, and animals. Much of the walk takes place in the Virgin River and participants should be prepared to get wet and to walk on river rocks using a walking stick. Learn about the power of flash floods to shape the landscape, see hanging gardens, and be awed by the massive vertical slabs of Navajo sandstone that form the canyon. The group will hike to the confluence of Orderville Canyon. Limited to 11 participants.
MINIMUM ENROLLMENT: 2 by Friday, July 3rd, 2020, @ noon or class will cancel.
ACTIVITY LEVEL STRENUOUS: 6 miles through water and walking on slick algae-covered river cobbles against the river current for half of the hike.
