Paria Canyon, UT

Join Outdoor Adventure for a week of backpacking in the Paria Canyon/Buckskin Gulch along the Paria River. Paria is the longest contiguous slot canyon in the galaxy. Come for the adventure, amazing views, the stillness of the desert, and a chance to get away from it all. Travelers will hike for 5 days, starting in a narrow slot canyon and ending 40 miles later at the start of the Grand Canyon. Along with the experience of navigating narrow slot canyons, this trip challenges backpackers to traverse residual pools of water and mud – occasional dips aren’t a rare occurrence, and trekkers are likely to cross the river over 300 times through the canyon. Perseverence offers the adventurer a chance at one-of-a-kind canyon views. This trip always fills fast, so sign up soon.
