Backpack Premier Hiking Destinations in Southern Utah
Here at the ranch resort, we’ve been researching and establishing new trails to take our guests into lesser-known canyon areas for exciting backcountry hikes. Zion Ponderosa expert guides recently headed out on an exploratory trek to thoroughly scout out some of our favorite locations and check out a few new ones. Here’s a sneak peak into their recent canyoneering and hiking adventures.
Waterfalls and Scenic Canyons
The diversity of landscape in and around Zion is unmatched. We recently explored this extraordinary canyon located close to Zion Ponderosa. The upper section of the trail offers scenic canyon views highlighted by waterfalls, with the option of exploring slot canyons along the lower trail.
Our first day of hiking included a seven-mile trek into the canyon. We stopped for the night and enjoyed a delicious Dutch oven dinner, then spent the night camping under the stars. After a hearty breakfast the next morning, we ditched our packs to travel light while exploring the lower slot canyons. We were able to explore four different slot canyons during the six-mile adventure. The return hike on this backcountry adventure travels through the main canyon and ascends among the scenic waterfalls.
Zion’s Secret Canyons
