The Best Trip in the Desert?

Paria Canyon is a Must-Do

I have had the privlege to complete this hike on four seperate occassions. It is simply amazing, gorgeous, daunting, and a little nerve wracking. While you don't need techincal canyonerring skills, you best have solid backcountry skills and the ability to improvise on the fly. You may be hiking flat or downhill the whole way, but the travel is rugged and unforgiving...and totally worth it!

Here is a great trip report, check it out! Paria Canyon Trip Report and Logistics

@m1walker I doubt I have as much experience as you in the hiking realm, so I might need to go on a few smaller excursions before I work my way up to this one. But that is definitely the goal

@alexnesbitt it was. while the travel was largely the same each time (a little different due to the depth and flow of the river) the biggest difference was in the light. each trip we were able to see the canyon from a different perspective due to shadows and time of day, not to mention the stars! this is a bucket-list trip!

@m1walker was each hiking trip that you took there still as amazing as the first time that you went?
