CanyoneeringThe Southwest has possibly the most spectacular red rock canyons in the world and canyoneering is an exciting way to explore them.  The area in and around Zion National Park offers up some of the best canyoneering in the country.  When it comes to guides, here at Tracks & Trails we’ve found a real gem in Zion Rock & Mountain Guides.  Whether scrambling over rocks or descending into narrow slot canyons with ropes and rappelling, their seasoned guides combine top-notch skills with good-natured fun.  Their committment to safety is evident by ongoing instructional classes that teach folks the ‘baby steps’ to develop necessary skills. They are the adventure experts in southern Utah who have a real passion for providing a first-rate family vacation adventure.


As you embark on your excursion, Zion Rock & Mountain Guides will outfit you with gear and review the day’s activities which will include hiking, scrambling, rappelling and seasonal wading/swimming.  No experience is necessary (really!) as the guides will size up your family’s expertise and make your journey safe, fun and educational.


You may be intimidated just thinking about the word ‘canyoneering.’  However, a majority of our clients have considered it a highlight of their RV Vacation to Zion National Park.  Apart from the exhilaration of descending into a slot canyon, you’ll learn about the natural history of the backcountry area and enjoy the solitude this experience provides.


If you’re looking for a canyoneering adventure, our Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon and Zion National Parks or Exploring the Southwest’s Canyons and Lake Powell trips are worth looking into.  Give us a call at 800-247-0970 for more information about scheduling your  family RV vacation!
