Paria Canyon & Buckskin Gulch

  • Apr 24, 2013 · 3:00 PM

Kendra & I are planning 4 days & 3 nights in Buckskin & Paria canyon via Wire Pass to Lees Ferry. Planning to leave town about 3pm Wednesday April 24, and spend the night (tbd near the trailhead).  Hiking Apr 25, 26, 27, & 28, and driving back to Tempe in the evening of Apr 28.  We'll plan several side trips, certainly including Wrather Arch, and others TBD...  This will be 4 days of 10-15 miles per day on loose sand, water, boulders, and possibly some wading.  Rope / Rappel skills are not required.

I have a permit for 6 people, so 4 spots are available. A $50 deposit is required to join this trip. $20 will go to the BLM for permit fees, the other $30 is refundable when you show up at the trailhead on Thursday morning. If you're interested, please join the waitlist, and send me an email. If I don't know you, please include a synopsis of recent trips indicating you can complete this trip without drama.

We'll need one other driver to participate in a trailhead car ferry.  No special vehicle requirements - you can leave your car at Lee's Ferry.

More details to follow as we go!

    Eventually I'll sort out the best dozen or two & post them to FB, but you can wade thru these for now.
