Zion: Canaan Mountain - 14 km
Today we trek from Water Canyon to Canaan Mountain, otherwise known as the “Island in the Sky’’. The route leads us along a mountain path passing waterfalls, canyons and beautiful views of Zion National Park. We will traverse massive slickrock bowls, wander across dunes dotted with ponderosa and see massive white domes, hoodoos and a cornucopia of stepped rock. After lunch we will arrive at Canaan Mountain, an elevated plateau of red Navajo sandstone, heavily fractured and eroded, forming countless pinnacles and small ravines. At the trailhead we transfer back to Springdale and tonight we will mark our achievements with a celebratory dinner!
