hike buckskin gulch/paria canyon

Buckskin Gulch is one of the premier slot canyons in southern Utah. We will drive down Friday afternoon (October 17th), and leave a vehicle at the exit point (Lees Ferry). The backpack wil start at the Wire Pass trailhead early Saturday morning. Upon reaching the confluence of Buckskin Gulch with the Paria River, we will continue downstream to Lees Ferry on the Colorado River. Total trip length is about 43 miles. We may have time to explore one or more side canyons along the Paria. This trip is for experienced backpackers who are not claustrophobic. Trip subject to cancellation/reschedule if there is a flash flood danger. Limited to six.
