ZION NARROWS SERVICE PROJECT
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 places 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 5 participants.
MINIMUM ENROLLMENT: 2 by Friday, Aug 27, 2021 @ 12 noon or class will cancel. If you’re reading this past the minimum enrollment date it means the class is a go and you can still sign up by calling 435 772 3264.
AGES: 16 years and up
MEETS: 7:30 am in front of the Zion Human History Museum. The naturalist/instructor will gather the entire group and proceed to the Temple of Sinawava on the park shuttle where the hike begins. *****Please note that in the likelihood of flash flood danger on the day of the hike, an alternative hike will be substituted.
ACTIVITY LEVEL STRENUOUS: 6 miles through water and walking on slick, algae-covered river cobbles against the river current for half of the hike.
