Join us for this year's Winter Mega Hike. To participate in this event, you MUST have some sort of additional traction for your footwear, such as Yak-trax or Katoohlas. The terrain is expected to be extremely icy. You will board a trolley with a pair of guides and be taken to the east end of the park where you will begin your trek. Hike will leave the Lodge at 8:30a.m. both days. You will hike a total of 13.4 miles and see all 18 canyons, where some of them will have frozen waterfalls. You will also go to 6 overlooks where you will have a good possibility to see bald eagles. Expected time for lunch is 1:00, with a finish time approximately 4:30pm. Included is trolley transportation, guides, boxed lunch (1/2 way) and a specially designed long sleeved shirt. If you arrive without the proper footwear, you will not be allowed to hike with the group. $37.00 per person. Reservations a must.
