Advanced Hiking - Zion NP: EDRC 161 02

Zion Hike


Explore Utah's First National Park through a collection of challenging day hikes while camping in a local campground. Walk among the towering cliffs and view the massive canyon walls ascending toward a brilliant blue sky. This class will travel to Zion National Park during Fall Holiday (10/23-10/26). Hiking will be challenging, traveling 5 to 9 miles over rough terrain. Some sections of trail will have long drop offs (not appropriate for anyone fearful of heights) and others will require hiking over slippery rocks and wading through water and even swimming.

If you are under 18, please notify a staff member before you sign up.
