Non-technical (Canyon Hiking)
Our non-technical canyon hikes will immerse the group into an iconic desert adventure, taking us past steep sandstone walls, caverns, canyon streams, pools and waterfalls!
Skills: We have several canyon options that allow us to customize the level of challenge. There are a few steep sections, but overall most of the trail is flat and only requires hiking – no ropes or harnesses needed. Some routes require brief scrambling and ascending and descending a fixed ladder. We can adjust the route length to remove scrambling parts depending on the group’s confidence level.
Petroglyphs & the desert ecosystem: The group will get to see petroglyphs (ancient rock carvings), iconic rock formations and rock sculptures. We’ll be on the lookout for desert wildlife, including the Bighorn sheep commonly spotted here.
Length: Our canyon hikes range from 4 to 5 miles round trip, and can take a half day to a full day depending on the route.
