Join a ZCFI naturalist as we hike the East Rim or East Mesa Trail down to the canyon floor at Weeping Rock. This is one for seasoned hikers looking to expand their knowledge base while they enjoy a longer hike. Along the way we’ll talk geology, botany, some biology, and desert ecosystems. We’ll pass through several of Zion’s geologic layers, enjoy incredible rim vistas, and descend through Echo Canyon as it skirts around Weeping Rock. We’ll stop at a nice spot somewhere on the rim for our picnic lunch. Enjoy one of Zion’s premier hikes and learn a lot about the desert you love along the way! Limited to 6 participants.
