Zion National Park, Springdale Utah

Zion National Park


Come camping with us in beautiful Utah as we get ready to hike and play in Zion National Park. This is a Meetup Event that will include Car Camping, Hiking in Zion National Park, and siting around the Campfire. If you have been to our Meetup Events in the Badlands and Sedona, you are in for a huge treat. We will be shuttling back and forth from Zion NP (only 20 minutes away) and be shuttled from the Visitors Center to hike Angels Landing.

We have shuttle permits for the following dates: May 11th, 12th, 13th and the 14th. This is the only access to the park and trails.

Description of the Event:

Angels Landing is one of the breathtaking hikes in Zion and has by far the most stunning viewpoints you will ever experience, but it’s not recommended for anybody with a fear of heights. Starting at the Grotto Trailhead, the hike to Angels Landing follows the longer West Rim Trail backpacking route up and out of the west side of the main canyon. Angels Landing is unique fin-like mountain formation that juts out to the center of the main canyon. The trail follows the narrow spine to the final viewpoint roughly 1500 feet above the canyon floor. This hike will take between 3-6 hours; your legs will burn, your knees may shake, and the view will take your breath away!

The Narrows is another of the most beautiful places you will ever see. This is for anyone who wants to see the best of the Zion Narrows, this is the route to do. Starting at the Temple of Sinawava (the last stop on the free Zion Canyon shuttle), we can hike up the Riverside Walk trail and then continue hiking right up the river to see some of the best “narrows” sections of the North Fork of the Virgin River.  We will hike up as far as we want to go and then turn around and retrace our steps. A side hike up Orderville Canyon is also a good detour to see even more amazing slot canyon scenery. As a round-trip hike, this can be as leisurely or strenuous as you wish to make it. This Hike will take at least 6 hours.

If you plan on doing both hikes, they will take a full day to do just one.

Both Hikes are rated Strenuous;

Both Hikes will take most of the Day
