10 Miles Round Trip-
4 to 5 hours-
2100ft Elevation Gain-
Level 7 Hike - Advanced
We will all meet right at the beginning of the parking lot near the locked gate. From there we will walk down the paved road 3/4 of a mile to the trail and then its 4 miles to Sturtevant Camp. After a break at the camp we will hike 5 miles back to to the parking lot. This is called the Zion Loop. There is lots of shade and scenery. We will be crossing some streams so wear shoes you dont mind getting wet.
This is an advanced hike. We will be doing a lot of uphill hiking. So please only consider this hike if you think you are up to the challenge. You will definitely be sore the next day if your not used to this distance and elevation.
From the 210 freeway take the Santa Anita exit. Drive 5 miles north to Chantry Flat. There is a big parking lot. An adventure pass is required to park. I recommend arriving by 6:15 because the parking lot fills up fast on the weekends. If its full then park down the road paying attention to posted signs.
What To Bring
