• $300 per person, plus taxes & gratuity.
• Maximum 6 guests – Experienced Hikers Only.
• Trips are on Sundays: Depart resort at 7am; return at approximately 2pm.

Angel's Landing is one of the most iconic trails in Zion National Park and it listed on the National Historic Registry, making it a bucket-list-worthy experience. The trail begins along the Virgin River and follows a well-marked trail into Refrigerator Canyon. The cooling breeze of Refrigerator Canyon will refresh you as you prepare to climb Walter's Wiggles, a steep section of 21 switchbacks named for the first park superintendent who created this iconic trail to the top of Angel's Landing. Prior to this it was said that the area was accessible only by the Angels among us. The real adventure begins at the top of the Wiggles at Scouts Lookout where lucky guests are treated to condors soaring on the winds created by the steep canyon walls. From here, the hike ascends another 0.8 miles to the summit. This last section of trail is known as the Hogs Back and has 1,500 foot drop-offs on both sides. The trail is often only a few feet wide and requires extreme caution. There is a chain securely anchored in place to help guide and assist. Those who have the courage and strength to make it to the summit are rewarded with feelings of accomplishment, joy, and wonder!

This amazing journey only covers 5 miles, round trip. However, that is not indicative of the challenge it creates. The 1,500 foot elevation gain and mandatory attention to detail will challenge even the most seasoned hiker. The Red Mountain guiding team has helped our guests enjoy this empowering adventure for many years. With our professional guidance this day trip will create vacation memories to last a lifetime.

The trail has steep narrow sections and extreme drop-offs. It is for experienced hikers only. Not recommended for anyone with a fear of heights, vertigo, or balance issues. Strong legs, dependable knees, and a sense of adventure are required.

Private, guided experiences are also available, based on guide availability at $360 per person, plus taxes and gratuity.

Kanarraville Falls Hike

Half-day trip, available as private guided experience $360 per person

The trail is about 4.5 miles round trip and is considered an entry level canyoneering experience. The hike starts on a red dirt path along the banks of Kanarra Creek before veering into the stony creek bed. The twists and turns lead to two sparkling waterfalls framed by a log ladders with steel footings and rope railings. During the hike we will ascend both waterfalls (using the ladders) creating a unique summer adventure! We will have plenty of time to absorb the natural beauty of this slot canyon, take photos and enjoy lunch. This is an "out and back" trail and typically takes between 3 and 4 hours to complete.

This hike is not recommended for anyone with poor balance, knee or ankle injuries. At times, you will be walking in the creek bed and you will get wet. Restrooms are available at the trailhead. Roughly 1 hour drive from resort.

Departs 7am. Returns 1pm.

Adding this trip on busy summer holidays gives our guests an option for an awe inspiring adventure, minus the huge national park crowds, as this hike is offered on a permit only basis with a very limited number of permits allowed each day.

This activity can also be offered as a Guide for Hire on other dates, pending limited permit availability, for $360 per person plus taxes and gratuities. Space limited to 10 guests per trip.
