Zion National Park Camp and Explore

Zion National Park Camp and Explore

March 26, 2018 to March 30, 2018
Zion National Park
08:00 AM to 10:00 PM

Zion allows you to follow the paths where ancient native people and pioneers once walked the land. With massive sandstone cliffs of cream, pink, and red that soar into a brilliant blue sky, you are guaranteed a week to remember. Our days will consist of canyoneering through slot canyons in the Narrows along the Virgin River, hiking the Hidden Canyon Trail, Kenyeta Trail and the Upper Emerald pools! No trip to Zion would be complete without a visit to the famous Angels Landing trail filled with switchbacks ascending over sheer cliffs with chains bolted on the rock face to serve as handrails. Zion’s unique array of plants and animals will enchant you as you absorb the rich history of the past and enjoy the excitement of present day adventures.
