This gentle 6-mile round trip trek explores Armijo’s Old Spanish Trail route alternatives along the Paria River through a beautiful box canyon. Rocks can be slippery in spots, wading is required and the river can be muddy after recent rain. Access by dirt road is weather-dependent.

Call the GSENM Kanab Visitor Center at 435-644-1300 to reserve your place. You must provide a phone number where you can be reached, so we can inform you of any change in plans. Bring plenty of water, a hat, sunscreen, lunch and your sense of adventure. This hike will take 6 to 8 hours, including travel time to and from Kanab. Limited to 12 people.
