NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY, NO NEED TO HAVE HIKING/BACKPACKING OR CANOE SKILLS EITHER. IT'S FOR BEGINNERS, INTERMEDIATE AND EXPERIENCED HIKERS AS WELL.

Please check your schedule before signing up. _____________________________________ Hello Adventurers, Come join us for a fun filled, easy, ~12 mile canoe ride and camping trip down the Colorado River over 2 days. Did I mention the awesome natural Hot Springs we'll be lounging in ...and a hot waterfall? If interested, read carefully below. We drive up Friday afternoon after work (5 hour drive), stay in the casino hotel or camp at Willow Beach, each to his/her own. If there is interest, I will get a group rate at the hotel. We’ll meet up Saturday morning at a designated spot where the outfitter will pick us up and take us to the Colorado River right front of Hoover Dam. This is where our adventure begins. We will take a relaxing stroll down (the water floats about 1.5 miles per hour) the Colorado River. This is a ~12 mile, flat water, mostly shallow section of the Colorado River, that cuts through a long and beautiful canyon with many hot springs. There will be scenery with desert views, rocks, longhorn sheep, awesome colors! We will stop (optional) in a few spots to explore some cool canyons with weeping moss formations, stick our feet into hot springs, sit under a hot waterfall, and much more…. You may explore as much as you can handle. We will camp at the famous AZ Hot Springs camping spot (2 ‘port-a-potties’) where we’ll make campfire(s) (BRING FIREWOOD!!!) and a great dinner. Steaks, grilled stuff, whatever you desire. We’ll sit and cook 'together', so you can get to know others. It's a great SOCIAL trip!!! BYOB, you will need it to warm you up! The night will be cold, but just 0.2 miles from the camp sites there is a nice hot spring to warm up in. ….oh, and there are hungry ring tail cats awaiting to steal your food that you leave unattended:). We will continue to float down the river Sunday morning (10 am start), check out Emerald Cave, etc…. and be picked up by the outfitter at Willow beach early-afternoon. We'll drive home in a reasonable time. No prior canoeing or kayaking experience necessary. You'll be paired up in a canoe that hold 2 people and a lot of gear. Temps are normally sunny, and in the 60s during the day (shorts and T-shirt fine), but expect 30-40s at night (bring appropriate camping gear :) ) NO REFUNDS!!!! I will work out what I can if you find someone else to go instead of you for the outfitter's fee ($90), but permits are non-transferable and non-refundable $22. This cost does not include camping or hotel for Friday night or your drive up. That's additional. Due to the Hoover Dam security you will need to show your ID, and permits are individual specific. Payment is due upfront to reserve your spot as permits fill up fast. PLEASE CHECK YOUR SCHEDULE PRIOR TO SIGNING UP, there will be no money back if you change your mind. INSTRUCTION FOR PAYMENT: please RSVP by signing up on the "waiting list", and I will send you instructions via e-mail. Once payment is received, I will move you to the "going" list. To guarantee your spot, please act promptly, permits can run out at any time! Cheers, and looking forward to seeing you (again). Happy Trails Aniko TheHiker Text 602-690-5485 or send an in-mail

What we're about

Public Group

The Hiking Hikers Hiking Group (“3H”) is an outdoor activities group, that seeks, through its members and member volunteers, to provide a supportive, nurturing environment for people to enjoy and explore the outdoors; increase awareness of and protect beautiful wild places; and promote physical conditioning and encourage personal growth.

The 3H encourages its members, comprised of singles, committed couples and married couples from the early twenties to the late sixties and beyond, to be well-prepared for each event attended by taking personal responsibility for their own safety and educating themselves on the skills and knowledge needed to be safe in the many places near and far that this group visits.

Education, common sense, respect for others and the willingness to help, by all of us, provides a fun, safe, and positive experience for everyone.
