Route Details: This trip begins with a distinct however unmarked trail, as we progress farther into the hike our route becomes less and less apparent until ultimately we are route finding based on geographic features. En route to our campsite we will cover approximately seven miles and gain over two thousand feet of elevation. Once we have established a camp we have the option to explore the area near the summit of Canaan Mountain and return to camp for dinner.
The destinations we visit place hikers in a wondrous and remote setting; as such hikers will be required to carry the gear and food needed for the time we spend in the backcountry. Everyone in the group will need to be able to carry a pack, ranging from 20-30 lbs, over the course of the trip, during which we will cover between 15 and 20 miles of terrain. Terrain will range from sandy sun exposed washes to deeply entrenched canyons. Some sections of trail that we cover may require the use of hands and feet while making upward progress. While not technically demanding, those with acrophobic tendencies will need to be sure to take their time.
If you have any concerns with the above listed prerequisites we are happy to discuss options on a case-by-case basis.
What to Bring
Weather conditions do not permit clients to cancel trips unless ZAC determines conditions make the trip unsafe, at which point we will reschedule or offer a full refund.
Refunds will be returned to the method of payment used at booking.
"Almost all the equipment was provided and there was no need to study a map. Everyone had a great time, learned a lot about camping, saw a lot of beautiful nature-y landscapes and structures, and became inspired to camp/hike more often."
