Backpacking Paria Canyon

duration: 7 days

difficulty: Moderate

group size: 8

experience: Intermediate


The lower Paria River Canyon is a remote wilderness area that dissects the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument. It is an incredible, 38-mile+ desert route that offers incredibly stunning and diverse scenery ranging from the deep, dark narrows of Buckskin Gulch to seldom-seen Wrather Arch. There is no road access to the Paria River Canyon system between the two terminal trailheads of this hike, White House Campground at the North end and Lee’s Ferry on the South End. Depending on the length of the various optional side trips, you may end up hiking up to 50 miles (and no less than 38 miles) over the course of this five day adventure. The Paria Canyon drains a large area of the high country of Grand Staircase Escalante.  


-Experience the impressive passageway of Paria Plateau  

-Descend through layers upon layers of richly colored sandstone towards the Paria’s confluence with the mighty colorado river  

-Experience the magical night skies.
