Looking for an amazing backpacking adventure with seclusion and all the beauty of the Southwest? Paria Canyon is the place that any backpacker would seek out for some of the most unique landscapes that so few have ever seen!
The Grand Canyon is one of the greatest places to hike in all of the world. One of the classic treks in this unforgettable landscape is a Rim to Rim hike - North Rim of the canyon descending to the Colorado and hiking out on the South Rim.
A great anecdotal story about leaving food unattended in Grand Canyon from guide extraordinaire Jen Hogan. Jen has banked thousands of miles below the rim of Grand Canyon and her 11 year old son has banked 3,000 miles - totally humbling.
As an Arizona native, I have had my fill of hiking Camelback Mountain. It is crowded with tourists and locals alike as if that is the ONLY urban trail in the Phoenix area. AND parking sucks. So, for you out-of-towners, here are 5 trails that the Phoenix locals hike.
Get out for a breath of fresh air this Halloween and find yourself some ghosts. Aside from the cardiovascular benefit of a challenging hike, the site of a ghost might get your heart pumpin' as well!
Who ever said there is no such thing as a dumb question must have never been asked one. We have compiled some oldies but goodies and some of our own that have come up over the 10+ years of running a hiking guide service. Fun times!
