Cool Hike for a Hot Day
About a 3 mile hike and much of it will be in the shade. We should be and out with temps below the high 80's at the end. This is a fun hike to test your scrambling skills. It's an in and out hike so you won't be left behind and you can't get lost. Some mildly difficult scrambles over large rock obstacles, but we will help anyone who has trouble getting over the few obstacles along the way. You might get your feet wet in a couple of spots, but if it doesn't rain the night before it should be even drier than it was on my scouting hike yesterday. Look for fossils in the rocks! A really interesting hike and close to town so no long drive to get to a cool spot. About 8 miles down a very well maintained road from the south end of River Road. Look for my Dark Chocolate Ford Explorer.

What we're about

Southern Utah Pathfinders is nothing more than a social media group designed to bring people together and go hiking. Our hikes are FREE and are to be used at your own risk and discretion. We go hiking and you are welcome to come along at your own risk. We are not professional guides or outfitters and are not responsible for your safety or health and wellbeing. If there is a charge for an event it is to cover the actual cost of permits, lodging, gas, equipment etc.. On the rare occasions we do charge for an event it is to simply reserve your spot as we have had an issue with people singing up and then being "No Shows". Some of our hike destinations are on peoples "bucket lists" and to have someone not show and deny someone else the opportunity is unfair. On a lot of our hikes we are limited to the number of people we can take. By charging a small fee to cover actual costs we hope people are more committed to attending. If a fee is charged and you do not wish to pay it, that is fine. However, your spot will not be reserved and if the hike is full when you arrive you will not be allowed to come with us. The annual dues paid give you access to the website so you can see when and where we are hiking and help us:

a - Pay for the website

b - Pay for our annual BBQ and frequently used equipment.

c - Occasionally pay for park passes for those people who help organize our hikes.

d - Help pay for permits and other expenses for our hikes.

This group is for hikers of all skill levels. Our organizers post weekly hikes for the beginner, intermediate and expert hikers and we are looking forward to meeting other outdoor enthusiasts. We are a relaxed group that enjoys the company of others while exploring Southern Utah and sometimes beyond.

Group Rules

1 - Be kind, respectful, polite and courteous, have fun and be safe.

2 - While hiking always keep one other hiking member in sight. If you disengage from the group and strike out on your own, you will be considered no longer a part of that hike and the group will leave you.

3 - Be kind, respectful, polite and courteous, have fun and be safe.

4 - Please do not post negative comments about past, present or future hikes. Hiking is a positive experience and even if you didn't enjoy a specific hike I am sure others did or will.

5 - Be kind, respectful, polite and courteous, have fun and be safe.
