Zion National Park
Come join us for this great trip in beautiful southwestern Utah for a backpack trip in Zion NP to Kolob Arch. There will also be plenty of time on this trip to enjoy Zion National Park and all it has to offer. There will be a fee ($20 pp) involved that will be settled up later. Also, there will be a fee to enter the park. Carpools from Tucson will be set-up as needed. We have a campsite reserved for Saturday night in the Watchman Campground. I plan on driving up Friday morning to arrive in Zion NP by early afternoon - I will find myself a campsite in one of the many campgrounds in the area. I will be emailing those that are signed up as we get closer to the event. Please feel free to email me with any questions you might have. Itinerary: -Saturday morning we will meet at the Visitor Center at 10 am. Saturday can be spent sightseeing Zion and all it has to offer. - Sunday morning very early we will meet at the Visitor Center by 6:30 am - stop in Springdale for coffee and travel to the northwest corner of Zion NP to the Lee Pass TH to hike to Kolob Arch . This is a relatively easy hike 6.5 miles down to the convergence of La Verkin Creek and Kolob creek for a total of 13 miles roundtrip. There are plenty of trees at the campsite for those of you who hang. - Monday morning we will hike out to our cars and drive home. Arriving in Phoenix
